I have a Hellcat crew, and my AMX M4 1945 crew both at 99% of their first perk.  This will be a good weekend of grinding for me.

3 more days of Tier 6. People without good crews in 8's should use this.

Here's an interesting thing I just thought of: Will the crew XP bug affect the mission crew XP?

Big deal, I have 50 tanks to play so denying me the x3 sucks, not that we get x5 like NA gets whilst we get x3 either.  So I may go out this weekend and leave the poor people to enjoy their banal x2 grinds in the few tanks they have in their garage they may call favorites. I will see this arvo if this changes back to x3. 

 

 

btw if you read it it says repeatable only with strongholds not randoms pubs unless in a clan lol so u guys don't even get that :P

Ah so the individualism is not encouraged, must have group dynamic!

 

Not only that but i just tried to repeat a premium tank and it didn't give me a repeatable maybe because you are already getting 50% bonus. It also said for crew xp only no repeatable battle xp either. Wtf??? This seems the worst case scenario I've ever had for a weekend.

 

Event Start: 21 November, 2014 (Friday) @ 13:30 - 14:00 UTC+8 (06:00 UTC)

Event End: 24 November, 2014 (Monday) @ 13:30 - 14:00 UTC+8 (06:00 UTC)

 

IMy game was lousy as i wasnt really motivated but we won just to prove a point I get 282 received then 112 for driving a prem vehicle{ which we know doesn't get added yet until they fix it so that only is useful as battle xp to spend gold to convert xp at this stage},  and get 846 total as crew xp! Thus premium vehicles aren't included or there is another bug as Otto was worrying about ? Which is it now?

It has already started being now Saturday so I presume the weekend isnt going to get any better?

 

Event Start: 21 November, 2014 (Friday) @ 13:30 - 14:00 UTC+8 (06:00 UTC)

Event End: 24 November, 2014 (Monday) @ 13:30 - 14:00 UTC+8 (06:00 UTC)

 

Yes, it has already started. Clans because Strongholds and Clan Wars Campaigns aimed at lower tiers to get more participation.  Crew XP is what is getting buffed in this special, that helps players with crew training, get some skills into ya!

 

"Crew EXP gains will be boosted across the board as well. As long as you win a battle, you'll be earning twice the amount that you would normally."

I'm going to now subtract the % I need for the crewman to reach the next % just in case what I'm reading in the battle interface is wrong. Ps how can I paste my battle interface picture here so i can show you?

 

It says can be completed in any vehicle!

Right so premium vehicles are included??

 

 

Right well its not included in my churchill 3 I just played & again! I just checked i want to show you.

Put the picture on a hosting site like imgur, then put the URL of the image into the icon to the left of the Youtube icon.  Better to start a thread in General Error if you think something is not working properly though.

Im sorry wasabi im not gen Y, im not great with first posting things and then linking them Ive noticed I could put a picture in some threads cause you must have had a button facility to allow it but not this thread :(

 

I can tell you its not giving it to me on my premium vehicle. Is it giving it to you on your prem vehicle and your 50% crew prem bonus on top?? Anyone???

The 2x Crew XP is awarded each time you win, make sure you are checking the numbers on a win Mike.

 

If it is easier for you, just use one of the crew members as an example.  

 

If you have Accelerate Crew Training turned on, then don't choose a crew member with the gold highlight next to their training level in garage, as they are going to get double what the others get.  

 

Pick a crew member whose Experience required to increase skill is greater than your likely 2x amount, write down what that number is, play the battle for a win and record the number again, subtract the first value from the second and that is what the increase was.

 

Compare that to the actual xp earned in battle and you will be able to check.

Dear Wasabi, i just checked again it is definitely not included on my premium churchill 3.

I know about the accelerated crew training icon above the crewman that gets double the battle xp that the other crewmen aren't getting.

 

Without being able to paste picture, here are the exact figures.

 

 Map: Redshire 

  Churchill III

 1,740   (  -1)  37,974   (  -833)

 Battle achievements Mastery Badge: "2nd Class"

      Crew Exp: 3 729  
      Repairs: 123  

Total: 37 851     WN8: 3 142 (98)    

 

Before the battle 

Gunner needs 2452069 xp to get to 100% for his 6th skill.

Driver needs 2452936  xp to get to 100% for his 6th skill.

 

 

 

After  the battle  

Gunner needs 2448340 xp to get to 100% for his 6th skill.

Driver needs 2449207  xp to get to 100% for his 6th skill.

 

Gunner

2452069-    2448340 =3729

Driver  2452936 - 2449207 =3729

 

 

3729 is the most I get. Where is the mega weekend special on top of this that is displayed???

 

PS both the driver and the gunner don't have accelerated crew training , its only the radio operator because I lost 200k xp ages ago when ii dropped skills for gold and it reverted to free drop thus losing 2 months work and 200k xp on radio operator which staff says they cant return my crew xp to me btw. 

 

So anyway the driver and gunner have no accelerated training icon above them so that is why i chose them to compare figures.

 

Received 830 raw xp then get 1245 xp for prem acct   

-1 fine for causing accidental damage to allied vehicle 

497 for driving a premium vehicle ( which still isn't added to the premium crew training yet as staff admitted there is now a bug they have to fix here} 

Total 1740 battle xp

 

Now crew xp we don't add the 497 into it because the bug still hasn't been fixed where we are supposed to get that 497 included so anyway its just 1245 x 3 = 3729 for 50% bonus on prem crew xp to start with.

or 1.5 prem crew bonus x 1245 x 2 weekend = 3729 if you understand the bonus that way.

 

Anyway it still adds up to 3729 which is correct in every way.

Except one thing...

I see the Mission completed again saying mega crew xp weekend 

reward : crew experience co efficient 2 so that should be now 3729 x 2 = 7458

 

Where is the 7458 Wasabi???

Please play one of you premium tanks now Wasabi and show me your crew figures and prove me Im wrong that the mega weekend crew bonus isn't included in the premium crewmen.

I havent checked non premium tanks yet but Ive proven theres no mega weekend bonus crew special for premium crewmen in prem tanks.

 

Hi Mike, in your battle result you got 1,740xp for the tank.  Each member will only get that if there is no mission, but your crew members received 3,729, so they are getting a multiplier.  That is not 2x though.   There is some problem therefore, I have sent a message to the GMs to look at this.

Yes you are correct Wassabi about the megaweekend. I should only get that 3729 as its the 2nd win. I would only get 7458 if it was on top of that which we have had in previous weekends i believe. Thus this weekend is just x2 each time and not an accumulated x2 on top of the times 2 

 

1245 x 1.5 = 1867.5 is premium tank and acct crew xp then x2 for the bonus on crew xp. =3729

But I only get 1740 as battle xp when i don't tick accelerated crew training. and that doesn't get any bonus or accumulators. However if this was my first win then the battle xp would be x2  ie 1740 x 2= 3480

 

 

However the bonus co efficient for driving a premium vehicle which isn't included in the crew xp as it should be as we discussed before is where i'm right. :) & where the devs will fix this in their next maintenance.

I have this feeling I was the cause for the non x3 this weekend. Last week, I claimed x3 should not be considered Mega EXP, Tanitha replied it will no longer be a norm for x3 weekends. Sorry guys...

Feedback from the devs was for premium vehicles calculation is (vehicle xp (without premium bonus) + 50%) x 2.  In my test case that was accurate.  What was confusing is there is a confirmed bug of the display of the premium adder, but the crew xp bonus was calculated properly.
