I don' have the stats or the ability to say either way, it just seems to me, when I put on the reserves it's harder to get a gg. But I'm not a good player from all the standards. I don't even run xvm or any mods so I believe it's called vanilla. 

But I would like to be able to sell the hundreds of personal reserves like I was able to sell all the flags and icons which I wouldn't put on my tanks. 

 

^..Again, I've heard this same thing quite a few times before, by players in this forum. Does it really seem that activating a PR suddenly "switches" you to auto-fail teams, or screws with your RNG, or such..? And why would you think that..? I'm not judging, I'm just curious. Let me know what really happens to your matches when you 'switch on' a PR.

Dear Wargaming,

Nooooooooo....!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

 

I seriously wish you'd reconsider.

No.  You cannot use two reserves of the same type, even if they are of different durations capacity (%).  If you are running a 50% Combat/tank XP, you can add to it: Credits booster, Crew booster.

 

You can't run two of the same type at the same time.  I have run a 2 hour Credits, 1 Hour Combat and 2 Hour Crew reserves and that piles up quite nicely.

NO... this is pure tin-foil hat conspiracy baloney. I use PRs constantly, I never do a single pub battle without 3 of them running. My stats are not suffering for it.

 

The wrong belief that PRs cause "problems" is rooted in Negativity Bias.

Therefore a good approach is to use Prem tank + Prem Account + Crew Exp Reserve + Exp Reserver + Daily Double Bonus to get the fastest crew experience

 

Am I correct or if there is anything better please let me know.

 

Training crew is vital to me 'cause I never play a new tank if not at least 100% crew

 

Thanks in advance

That's about as good as it gets, Lachezar.

*Personally, I always activate at least 2 or 3 PR's whenever I play. And I have not noticed anything out of the ordinary when I activate my personal reserves.

​I can confirm this.  There are at least three different four-hour boosters, a +100% experience one, a +50% crew experience one, and a +50% free experience per battle one.  I don't know when they were given out, but I have some of each of those.

 

Also, you have a great forum profile picture!

Thanks again, Dude...:rolleyes:

Enjoy your holidays, and have a Merry Christmas!

Hey Dude, the following post {below} was originally on another thread, but I moved it here because I think it's great advice, and it fits in perfectly with what we are discussing here regarding the benefits of using your PR boosters in combination with other features in the game to maximize your crew skills.

 

Spoiler

 

*Yep, Crew Skills are probably one of the most important things to improve in this game. Without a decent crew you're just a sitting duck. Especially if you have to play against those die hard gamers with 50k battles or more.

Well to be fair the only two skills that are more or less mandatory are sixth and camo if you want to compete vs tanks with multiskill crews. All the rest are useful but are incremental compared to those two. Sixth will save your booty from getting reamed by invisitanks and camo will keep you from getting spotted due to its almost doubling of base camo value. Skills for view range and gun handling etc are nice but are already covered by equipment which have much larger bonuses.

Just a side note question here...

 

What does "kek" mean..?

http://forum.worldoftanks.com/index.php?/topic/403832-a-work-in-progress/page__st__20__pid__8762614#entry8762614

Someone posted that on my clan thread a while back, and I never got an explanation.  Maybe you can enlighten me...? Yes, I tried google, but all I got was even more confused.

Kek is lol in warcraft peon orc language. It was adopted by the early anti big meany face movements starting in the uk back in the early 2010's in the form of pepe the frog and the land of free kekistan wherein the noble pepe lives without the brutal yoke of unelected bureaucracies along with his kekistani brothers and sisters. It has since spread around the world and anyone may become a citizen. Shadilay!

^..Interesting. Thanks for sharing that.

 

*One more quick question....

If you were "offline", how did you respond so quickly to my question..? ...:amazed: {I checked your profile thingy}. Do you get notifications sent to your cell phone every time someone responds to one of your forum posts..? Just curious. I've heard we now have that kind of forum technology here.

No cell notifications as I don't use smart phones just old fashioned dumb phones with alpha numeric display. They still make them. As to the forum technobabble peruse your settings. :bush:

There are four server regions and you may have accounts on all of them. Also some of the competitive clans dissuade active forum participation so some have forum accounts in addition to their organized play accounts.
