I hate losing experience on a tank I decide to sell if it's not elite/premium. When selling a tank, implying that I have no further interest in pursuing that research line, I'd like an option to convert regular tank experience to Free XP.

Well, it is a subjective thing, for me at least.

 

Selling an elited tank with 2 or 3 skill crew because i need the credits for x... I might as well use said tank to earn those credits.

All that time invested on it, kinda grows into and its really hard for me to justifiy the credits i'll get back for selling it.

 

Thank god I'm not in that position or will ever be for that matter.

Yeaaaaah NO!  That's not gonna happen, because... reasons.

 

(And by selling the tank, you don't lose the xp, it stays on the tank in case you re-buy it.)

It's NOT elited, that's the point! It only points at a branch of the tech tree I have no desire to research. It has a quantity of residual XP I'd like to turn into Free XP. I don't have problems earning credits but I do earning XP. So I'd like to conserve my XP where possible.

No converting xp unless the tank is elite.

 

Preddy nailed it.  You don't lose the xp on non-elite tanks when you sell them.  The xp will still be there if you ever decide to buy it back.

I vote no.  It is already too easy to fail upwards quickly. Grinding some experience should give players more experience in lower tiers so that when they do move up they are not worthless to their teams. Going through a tank and playing it long enough to elite it is a good thing.

I voted no.  The experience is still there if you ever repurchase the tank (never know when WOT buffs something).  If you don't finish the grind on a tank...that is on you.

Poll is flawed.

 

Despite the wording I voted NO.  Per Murphy, you don't lose the xp it stays on the tank should you choose to finish the grind later.

Ok, not sure why you played the tank to begin with if it only points at a branch of the tech tree you don't want to research.  For me, the only reason to play/grind a tank is to move up to the next tier tank.  I do keep and play the lower tier tanks that I really had fun with unless I run out of room in the garage (trying to stay at 60 slots).  Just my opinion...

You must have a lot of gold to burn if you have so little XP on elite tanks that you need to worry about this.  How about just drive some elite tanks a little and poof, you have XP.

 

My personal policy is to not sell a tank until it is elite.  I find that I run out of credits too fast if I speed up how fast I move through tanks by not taking them to elite status before I move on.

 

By the way, I didn't vote because I don't agree with any of the options.

If you have already moved up the Tech tree and this is a low tier tank that you really don't need then I think you should be able to convert the combat XP to free XP. I voted yes because I think you should get something for the XP. Not gold though.
