I know you are here to make money and all but that discount was not a sincere discount. Just another honey pot... What's the difference between buying now and later...?

I have been waiting for like a month for the Chinese new year discount for this tank and I have been expecting, not much, may be a 5% at the minimum. But that 1% was humiliating...

 

It's only 1% because the garage slot that comes with it is discounted. The tank itself is not.

Well, considering Chinese New Year discount is not on the Chinese tank but on a garage slot that has no "Chinese garage slot" in it is just wrong IMO...

 

I have saved up cash, to buy this tank, for a month, along with another gold bundle for 1 month premium account. I actually had my credit card out of my bloody pocket in my left hand when I opened the premium store page and saw that "1%", which immediately dissuaded me from making all of that planned purchase above from happening...

 

Well, WG, you just lost one paying customer today. I will be sticking with free user basis for quite a while...

No Type 64 discount is glaring.

No longer playing World of Tanks.

Hi guys,

 

 

 

So about the free XP to crew XP conversion, what should I expect when I get home from work today, good deal or ripoff?

 

I realised late today that what I thought was a great idea from WG probably isn't what I expected. Why? Well I was thinking of it working like normal crew XP from battles, the XP earned from one battle is earned by all crew members equally and not divided, etc. So I'm thinking, great, 47k free xp to get a 1 skill crew on a tank, about 120k I think for a two skill crew. 

 

That may sound like a great offer and pretty fair as a 4 or 5 skill crew is well over a million free XP. I'd assume most people who had that kind of XP would have it sitting as convertible rather than actual XP, so pretty good money spinner and gold sink for WG. 

 

BUT then I realized the XP you need isn't per tank but rather probably needs to be multiplied by the number of crew members. So a 4 crew tank would require about 168k free XP to get 1 skill. That's now not even close to attractive. 

 

So for those who've seen the new system today, which system is it, per crew member or per tank? If it's per crew member, is this then another "make scouts popular" strategy by WG as they usually have the least number of crew of any of the tank types, so cheapest to skill up.

Maybe it's just me, but I kind of assumed that when something starts on the 19th, it would start at the same time that things have been starting for years in this game: 2 p.m. Singapore time.

 

Was I silly to think that this, for some reason, would not be different?


All pre-9.5 tier I through VI tanks played and elited.

The garage slots are on special at the moment, that reduces the cost of all tank packages that come with garage slots by very little..

And tanks in the premium shop, come with a garage slot.

Its usually ~2pm SGT, you are posting at 1.38pm SGT

It can switch on between 1:30pm -> 2pm depending on batch processing queues, but its usually pretty close to 2pm.

Depends on which ones you are referring too.

There was a x2 exp all battles from 18-20

The free exp -> crew exp from 19-23

The x5 first victory from 20-23

Etc. Etc long list...

If you are interested in whats running and when, please read through the news for them, there is a lot on at the moment.

You can exchange 1 free exp, to 5 crew exp, for free.

Its a bit hard to rip you off with a free feature.

Transfer or not, whatever makes you happy.

Crew skills haven't changed, You can check out how many exp is required to level skills via the wiki.

http://wiki.wargaming.net/en/Crew

 

The fact that crew's take a lot of EXP to level up after you have a few skills, is the reason this event will be popular..

But if you don't want to use it, that's cool, click whatever buttons make you happy.

In stead of guessing, i'll ask the programmers how the event is coded exactly.
Sorry for the delay in replying.

So it is confirmed that there is in fact no discount at all on the Chinese premium tanks in Chinese New Year. All the discounts are just garage slots...?

Sorry if I sound like bragging but it just doesn't make sense to have a discount on garage slot instead of Chinese tanks in Chinese New Year...

RIPPED OFF OR EXPLAIN THE X3 CREW XP BONUS

  •  Crew EXP boost for all battles
    • Must deal at least 100 damage to qualify.

Available from 27 Feb - 2 Mar only.

 

Base xp is 630 and 31* for prem people  is 945 xp with 46*

 

base is 1260 xp and 62* and prem is 1890  xp and 92*

 

Victory 

 Map: Westfield 

  FV207

 1,890   (x2)  24,819  

 Battle achievements Mastery Badge: "III Class"

      Crew Exp: 3 780  

Total: 24 819     WN8: 1 741 (65)     

Thus 1890 * 3 is 5670 not 3780 which is only x2

 

 

Is it base xp that's x3 or prem xp that's x3 and where do you factor in the daily doubly after the x3 has been added or after???

 

 

PS I have also confirmed by adding figures from a crewman that i did indeed only get 3780 for crew xp and not 5670 for crew xp!
