How do WG calculate the discount applied for blueprints, as the discount doesn't always work out proportional to the number of blueprints

Example:

Having 1 of 4 blueprints for Tier 2 Loyd GC in the tech tree it shows Discount on research  as 25% - as I would expect

Having 1 of 4 blueprints for Tier 4 Birch Gun in the tech tree it shows Discount on research  as 18% - why not 25%

Having 2 or 4 blueprints for Tier 3 Ke-Ni in the tech tree it shows Discount on research as 40% - why not 50%

 

Any insight on this would be appreciated.

How much research experience have you already accumulated?

I guess none on the Loyd GC but some on the other two?

I haven't played a single battle in a Japanese or UK tank.

He's right, it's slightly disproportionate until you get to a full 6/6, 8/8, or 12/12 blueprints. It's been that way for ages.

 

As for why? Well, it's WG. No doubt they want to encourage people to go all-in on blueprints and discourage you spreading your blueprints around, using free XP to finish off various tanks.

Interesting - found a few that I have picked up and though two were 1/4 for 25% the rest were not exactly correct - initially thought the XP numbers were simply rounded up or down to make the numbers "neater" as seen in the Ferdi pic but others are at odd numbers (not rounded to the nearest hundred or similar)

 

Link to group pic if anyone is interested

CGC 1/6 = 16.6% discount - 15% shown

Ferdi - 2/8 = 25% - 24% shown

Somua & Sexton - 1/4 = 25% - 20% shown

Sherman - 2/6 = 33% - 30% shown

i have an insight related or not my apologies in advance !!

WG are well known of having a shit habit in giving reward to players.

E.G,,, when they reward  coupon must come with bloody litigation terms and condition you cannot buy this do this do that,,only this !!

That is very Hippocratic and insincere practice. We players being loyal to them but they rewards us with Gold packet inside toilet bowl  !!
