20k+ games and I still don't understand the workings of xp!


Tier 4 Game. Victory

Me : Tier 3 Panzer IVa. 1379 damage. All gained thru face to face brawl, nobody was spotting for me.  551xp

Team Mate : Tier 4 Pz B2 1067 damage/166 assisted. 885xp.

 

so he's one tier higher than me, got less combined damage yet gets a whopping 330xp more.

What am I missing?

I don't know, but you might find it if you compare both players results against the table in the wiki.  https://wiki.wargaming.net/en/Battle_Mechanics

I assume he had more kills?

With that info, we can't say for sure as we don't know what both did in detail. You say you did that all on your own spotting. But even on the HT lane brawling, the back and forth peeking can cause sightlines and the target they keep spotted to change.

 

Who had more first spots, did anyone of you spot arty first? Go for a cap? Get more kills? Damage alone won't shed much light on it.

The only premium that has that effect is the Churchill III.

You are not alone. 44k battles and I also don't understand the inner workings of XP calculations, whatever I get I just say thanks;)

You’ll be pleased to know that your in the same boat as everyone else. A good example is a thread several years ago seeing if the exp. for kill shots was significant. There were some results that certainly supported this idea and then results started turning up that very much didn’t. Who knows what the answer is as there seems to be so many different factors involved it’s can be tricky to work out what is going on.

 

Personally I just go with the better you are at doing things that win you games the more exp. you will get.

Fair enough, thanks for the feedback. Just seems  such a massive discrepancy especially as I was a tier lower as well.

 

Plus 551xp for near enough 1400 damage in tier 3 just seems plain mean!

Could you post the replay / screen shot of end result details for you and the other player, that might help us.

Was any of yourr targrts tracked? It's not only spotting that gives half of the dealt damages exp, tracking also gives.
