Went to the WOT wiki, but couldn't find a good definition...

Here's my situation.  I have an elite crew on my T49, and decided to switch from enhanced crew advancement to earn 'free' experience to use in order to more rapidly advance in the KV-1 and earn elite status in that tank by researching the KV-3 (last box left to research in my tree for that tank).

When earning the free exp in the T49, I don't see any reduction in the research points needed to research the KV-3; is that free exp only available for a particular country's vehicle/equipment research.  Or...do I have to select/convert exp earned to free experience in some way?

Thanks!

U have to use GOLD to convert it. Only way in elite tanks.

As said above, Free XP can only be converted from elite vehicles normal XP, or earned through battles ( 5% of the total XP you massed in a single match).
The XP change is of 1:25 ( Gold-XP).
Due to the innate-elite status that premium vehicles have, you can start to grind for (convertible) XP as soon as you buy them.
Why to charge for XP conversions? Simple. To profit from those who arent willing to do the horrid stock grinds that some tanks have, or skip a "meh" tank altogether.

Free XP can be used any place on any nation. The XP you see in the tank you're in is for the next tank in the tree only. If you want to skip tanks in a tree you either use free XP "not a good idea" or convert leftover XP after elite to free XP with gold "money" or earn the gold from events.

Just so you know, even if you have elite checked for crew skills you still get free XP.

So...

My elite crew for the T49 should be earning all 'free' exp?

Nope.
It will earn all of the XP massed in a battle if the enchance crew training box has been ticked, otherwise the XP will go to the tanks " inventory", rather than to your universal " inventory".

No xp will gather  on your tank as normal. because your tank is elite, you can pay to convert it to free xp.

They earn Xp (that needs to be converted) faster than if it was going into your crew

Unless you convert said XP with gold.

If you want a quick check of which Vehicles have free experience just click "exchange exp" it will show the amount of experience each tank can turn to research and the overall cost in gold, you can uncheck some/all thus not turning the experience of tank lines you are pushing thus saving you gold, there is a confirm button so no need to change any if your just looking.

Yeah, but if you dont, it will go to the tanks " inventory", just like with any other tank that doesnt have " Enchance crew training" on.

Basically, when you earn say 500 XP, the tank gets 500 XP, as does each crewmember. When you have accelerated crew training turned on, the tank's 500 XP goes to the crewmember with the lowest total XP, so you always have one crewmember getting 1000 XP while the rest get 500 XP.

Either way, you get an additional 25 XP added to your free XP total, which can be used on any tank.

If you don't turn on the accelerated crew training, the tank's XP just sits there, until you pay gold to convert it, then it gets added to your free XP total (usable on any tank)

No, any XP left after elite has been achieved is either converted with gold or can be all be used to  accelerate crew skill training, but you will still gain some free XP no matter what.

I see the term "free XP" being used incorrectly in some replies here.

In every battle played, 5% of your earned XP for that game is added to your bank of Free XP.  This can be used towards the research of anything.

If you have an elite tank with the advanced crew training turned off, you earn a pile of undistributed XP.  It is this undistributed XP that you can convert to Free XP using gold.

Thanks for the help!  I understand it much better now :>)  I thought perhaps there was a way to convert the exp earned by elite crews without using gold...

It's not "free" xp until you pay the gold to convert it.  Until then, it's just extra xp sitting on that tank doing nothing.
