i assume that the free experience is what can be used on any tank right? I saw the line about converting experience  in one of the pre game tips. how exactly do you do that?

Via Gold (To convert Experience from your Elited Tanks) or via simply playing your Tanks (Free Experience will be increased slowly over time)....

1 gold for 25 XP.  For 14.99$ you can convert 75.000 XP.

Just keep in mind it's better to grind out to the next tank with tank experience and save the free experience to unlock modules on the new tank.

Driving any stock tank in this game is miserable.

They should change Elite Talk description to:

"You have reached Elite Tank Status. You are ready to pull your credit card out of your wallet"

I was a bit confused on this as well. I played WoWP before WoT, and I'm used to the beta where everything's totally free and you get tokens just for winning. I am liking World of Tanks better though. Not as rage inducing, though it still is at times. I can't wait for World of Warships.

Too bad I didn't understand how to use experience when I started.  I have a lot of experience tied to tanks that I got rid of.   Can't see spending gold to reapply it to free experience

Click the button next to free experience.

So let me see if I get it. If I use real money I can buy experience? So per 1 gold I get 25 XP? Or gold only allows me to convert free experience, so I still have to earn XP the hard way and gold is only useful to convert that XP to any tank I want.

If it's the second, then isn't that a rip off? You already earned XP by playing but you still have to pay just to transfer it to another tank?

It's how WG gets folks to blow money. You would be amazed how many high tanks (not premium) were bought with gold.

Once you get everything researched on a tank, if you don't check the accelerate crew training box over the crew, all the XP you accumulate with future battles goes into limbo in that tank as there isn't anything left to research. So you can take that un-usable XP and convert it into free XP with gold and use it on anything you want. It helps with long grinds on vehicles by using XP from vehicles you enjoy playing vs just grinding out battles to get XP to upgrade modules.

In some ways its a rip-off, but in other ways it isnt.  It lets you earn exp where you need it at a faster rate than you could otherwise if you wish to, by using tanks youre better at then transferring it to free exp, and by doing doubles/triples etc on elite tanks and transferring that.  Being able to spike your research advancement where you want it IS an in-game advantage, and I have no problem if you have to pay for it, although I think the exchange rate could be a bit more generous.  Its not like the exp is wasted if you dont want to pay to change it to free exp- just tick the accelerated crew training box and improve your crew instead.

Note that about 5% of all your exp that you earn on any vehicle in any battle regardless of elite or non-elite status goes into your free exp pool regardless, for free.

I don't think it's a ripoff to spend a few hundred gold to acquire my tier 10 tank 1 month before I could without converting exp.  To each his own.
