Seen plenty of other people post similair results, where one teammate gets most exp for no apparent reason.

 

Very curious to see if anyone can figure out why the IS-7 has gotten most exp in our team.

I have taken into account the following:

-The battle is a tier 10 only match. So there are no bonuses for shooting higher tiered tanks for anyone.

-Have taken into account the assist damage and damage over 300 metres. But even adding this up, it still makes no sense for the IS-7 to be top on exp, compared to my own damage, assist and damage over 300m.

-Afaik blocking damage does not give any exp bonus. And if it does, it would still be unlogical compared to the E-100.

-The only remaining factor I can see is that the IS-7 had 3 kills, wheras I only had 0, and the E-100 had 1. However, I find it hard to believe that having 3 kills can make such a big difference in exp.

 

So... Any good investigators here? I am very curious to find out how the IS-7 got rewarded with so much exp.

Same as always, the game decided they were more use.

 

And what's wrong with wotreplays?

Well that's why I am wanting to figure out why. Highly curious about the gameplay decisions the IS-7 made to get so much exp.
I might even learn methods from it to earn more exp myself in the future. :)

 

As for me prefering WoT-Record, that site has sound effects, which just feels more satisfying to me to click and hover on.

And the added WN8 stats is a nice little information bonus as well.

And that's exactly why it's a secret.

 

What we know is you get exp for damage, for assisted damage, for how well your team does, and for being in the vicinity of the fighting (there may be more.)

 

I don't trust replays from anywhere apart from wotreplays (at one time there was an exploit going around contained in replay files which wotreplays checks for) so I didn't watch it.  I notice a lot of your damage was from over 300m though.

1017 out of 3606 was over 300 metres. Which still means I did 2589 within 300 metres. Which alone is almost triple the damage of the IS-7.

I also had 739 more assistance than the IS-7. So damage and assistance should not be the cause.

 

Here's a re upload to wotreplays, just for you. :coin:

It remains a mystery, he wasn't that much longer in close combat distance than you did so that can't be it. That he did three kills probably attributed some but that three kills more than compensate 2600 damage and 700 assist is a bit difficult to believe.

 

My current theory is that the current game mechanics subtract XP form the Obj.277 and add them to the XP yield of the Churchill III (as those usually get way too much XP, those have to come from somewhere)

 Even if, funnily enough, the 277 had nerfed exp, it would still be weird compared to our E-100.

Our E-100 had a good game too, doing even more damage than me, but having gotten less assistance. And he only really fired a single shot over 300+ metres.

 

The only more believable comparison for me would be our 430U, who had done almost all his damage on 300+ metres. However, he also did 3.3k assist.

 

Maybe the IS-7 also got a lot of initial spots. I also might suspect that you can get rewarded for spotting an opponent that your artillery stuns.

Well the only remaining thing on the list may indicate that the IS-7 just destroyed a ton of modules. I can't really see any other possiblity.

That does not tell much.

Only that no extra Xp for doing damage under 200m.
