I have in the past few battles gotten over 1k experience using my at-1 and my t-28. I find that winning and taking no damage gives you the most experience. It seems also that dealing damage and killing is secondary. I have gotten 5 kills and only gotten 500 exp but I have survived a battle at 100% hp and only damaged/killed 2 or 3 tanks and gained 1.9k exp. So, how exactly does this work?

You earn XP for damaging enemy tanks, detecting them (first only), as well as being in the vincinity when enemy tanks are being damaged by allies. Surviving has nothing to do with it.

Many factors to consider here.  Read this

Is that 1900 XP for 2-3 kills doubled or 5x for the 1st win of the day?  You normally need a really good game to earn 1900 base XP.

Dealing damage to tanks your tier or higher gives you the most experience.  I don't think taking damage makes much of a difference at all.  Winning gives a huge bonus, surviving and getting the kill shot a smaller bonus.

I don't think it was a first win today. I was kinda low tier in the match so maybe I dealt a lot of pain to higher than me.

so I guess the most exp you could possibly get is shooting a maus with a tank lower tier, setting it on fire, killing a loader or something, and watching it burn to the ground all in one.

Actually, I have just experienced something like this recently.

I got into a battle with tier 8s while using my tier 5 Panzer III/IV
All I ever did in that battle was hurt a KV, then get killed by a T32.
Our team won, and I got 2k experience.
I didn't even venture too far out from our flag.
I suppose that detection of 2 or 3 tanks that are not SPGs wouldn't be that significant.
I didn't have premium nor it was the first battle won for the day.
Why is that?

that's exactly what happened to me. It almost makes me want to buy gold to convert my useless 1.4k exp from it  B)B)

This 5x XP without any notification can be disconcerting at times, getting 4500 XP in a Tier 2 tank is just wrong! and like Will of Iron says now I have this bloody great temptation to spend all my gold there every time I log in!!

Not trying to steal this thread but I have a quick question about experience/xp also. How much of it per battle is multiplied into free experience? I beleive its 5% but Im not sure. Any good guides on this specific experience stuff someone can refer me to? (I did search and looked at pinned guides)

The third post in this thread by Wafflefries gives a link that has your answer if you want the source of this:

Free Experience
You gain 5% of your vehicle's experience as free experience. This is a bonus and is not subtracted from the vehicle's experience. Free experience can be used in the research of any vehicle.


As for the people getting large amounts of exp for a game that they didn't contribute much,  it is your first win of the day.  Right now there is an event on that gives 5X exp rather than 2X exp for first win of the day.   Unfortunately the score screen doesn't tell you that it is the first win of the day.

Actually i do believe there's a bonus for surviving the battle, i've noticed greater XP gains when i survive over XP when i died.
