1 Free XP = 5 Crew XP is what I understood the rating to be.

 

When I try it - it shows me 1 Experience will cost me 783 Free XP on a Tier V Tank. Trying to get my crew above 94%. Any Comments?

 

 

 

For me, it's about 900 Free XP = 1 Crew XP.

Is this program completely FUBAR, or is it some sort of bait-and-switch?

 

I'm afraid it is a case of you not understanding what a crew xp is.

It is NOT 1% advancement for a crewman.

 

If I look at a crew with 4 additional skills:

Experience required to increases skill: 11,168

Yep, to go up to the next 1% the crewman would need 11,168 crew xp.

1 free xp = 5 crew xp so I'd need to convert 11,168/5 = 2234 free xp.

 

I personally think that 5 crew xp for 1 free xp is not even close to a good enough exchange rate, needs to be like 50 crew xp for 1 free xp.

Will it cost anything to convert the Free XP to Crew XP like gold or silver? Or is it completely free?

Free XP to crew XP is 100% free.

Damn, I thought this idea got shot down multiple times in the past when it was suggested?

WG has a strange way of doing things.

Anywhere from 2-3 months (in this case years) they will passionately deny anything the userbase says is happening in the game or would be a good way to do things, only for those 2-3 months later they turn around and say that exactly what the userbase said would be a good way of doing things.

This is really only useful for the first skill... Anything after that... the cost effectiveness drops dramatically. Also, it is only ever worth it for gettting 6th sense. Everything else is moot. WG is just trying to create a gold sink for players sitting on a lot of free exp/gold before 6th sense is removed and added to every tank by default.

I got my H35 from 95% on the first skill to 75% on the third skill for the commander and unlocked the third on the driver with 78,000 Free XP total.

 

Also,

>6th sense.

I can diggy to China with the amount of shiggy I have for you.

You know 6th sense is a broken bum perk that by the time it activates you have already been killed.

I'm confused.  It says 1 free xp = 5 crew xp.  Well, I have free xp but when i try to convert to crew xp, it tells me I don't have enough.  Where does this 1 free xp = 5 crew xp come from?

 

It seems to work by calculating how much it'll take to move the percent of skill/perks up by 1% at the minimum.

 

So for example let's say you have a 1000 XP (which becomes 5000 crew XP) but in order for your crewman to go up by 1% it would take 5001, so the game doesn't let you convert the XP.

Yes it's kinda stupid but it keeps the coding short and I can see why they did it like that.

I have 351 free xp, but it wont let me convert it! do you need gold as well?

 

No, you just don't have enough XP to move the crew member's skill/perks by 1%.

this should be something to use all the time.

it makes more sense to be able to use free xp to do more in the game.

as well as credits to get more for the tank and crew.

it would be much more cost effective for the players.

Increase button not clickable

 

http://worldoftanks....eexp-to-crewxp/

 

according to that, once we max out a tank's research we can convert the free xp to crew xp, but unfortunately the increase button is not clickable. am i missing something?

I don't know if any WOT employees read this but I hope they consider keeping this feature permanently.  Hint to WOT: we will use up our free XP which for me just sat there for months waiting for the right time to update my new tanks.  If I use up my free XP quicker, there is more of a chance I will buy gold to convert my XP to free XP. I have no idea why you would not want to keep this feature!

Where did you hear that six sense is being added to every tank?  That makes no sense.  Such a powerful skill should only be earned.

Ummm what? You're giving me at least 6.4 MILLION crew XP for free? Or 11 mil if I want to use that Tourny GOLD :playing:

 

 

I m really jelly.

 

Used it for some light tank crews that didn't have 6th sense.  If/when 6th sense is put on all crews I'll be disappointed to have spent the free XP but worth it for now. 

 

@MajorMaddog Obviously I heard that 6th sense might be on all crews 'for free' too.

its not a very good deal, so by releasing periodically and hypeing it up, they will get more people to use it.

FEB 2016 special

but neede the infor from the past to make noobie clear

Oftentimes, players take this XP and (with Gold) convert it to Free XP to unlock higher-tier vehicles and modules. But what happens to all that Free XP when there isn't anything else to research? For the first time in World of Tanks, you'll have the unique opportunity to use your Free XP and convert it to Crew XP for a specific Crew member! 

  • Free XP that goes towards your Crews will go directly into a specific Crew member, and not the Crew as a whole.

  • Free XP is converted at the rate of

    1 unit of Free XP 1 unit of Free XP = 5 units of Crew XP = 5 units of Crew XP
