Hello Everyone!
I had played this game only for about a month, and it's a wonderful game, I must say.
One of its greatest strengths, that I saw, was that it allowed for transfer of experience from one tank to the other, with a small gold payment, this way one could climb up the tank ladder somewhat quickly. Except that now, all gold needs to be bought with real money.
I was thinking, and this is, of course, just an opinion, but, maybe WoT could implement a system of converting XP to "non-specified XP" with credits? Maybe something on the lines of 5 Credits to transfer 1 point of XP? At least, that is the only thing I would like to see changed in the game so far.
Hope everyone is well!

HappySheep.

It's an alternative, sure, but that could mean that the developers may not earn money. You have to realize that gold is to be purchased so the game developers do earn money. Be nice if it could work, but it could be quite credit costy.

Its an alternative, but it won't happen. Considering it is a mere 26 experience converted for every one gold.

In turn, one gold is converted to 400 credits.

That means 400 credits is worth 26 experience points.

Each credit is worth 0.065 free experience.

So your idea of five credits = 1 free experience point is way off of what their system would probably make it worth now.

You'd need 15.4 credits instead of 5 to equal 1 experience point.

It's worth a suggestion, but very unlikely to happen. Sorry.

What I would like to see is an auction system of credits for gold. It would allow players that wish to convert gold to credits to get a better deal and it would allow players that are willing to grind credits to turn them into gold.

This looks like it could work.  Wargaming still gets to sell the gold, which it needs to do with their financial model.

As for the OP suggestion, I don't think it would work.  The locking in of convertible experience is the carrot in this game.  I'm surprised they didn't give us all a free elite tank at launch.  That way we would be all earning exp we couldn't use without buying gold first.

15.5 credits to 1 exp
if they made gold conversion and credit conversion the same value then theres no point in using gold.
more likely to be 20 credits for 1 exp

Hmm... but even then, with the 20-to-1, I personally would take it... the point about the convertible XP being the carrot for the gold is definitely true though. Oh well. :(
