Yo yo yo, it's me again, yo, 

 

Y'all have been asking for Crew training discounts, and guess who's got them? :B

 

We're also offering a series of missions that reward 15K, 30K, or even 50K XP (depending on the Tier). 

 

Want to know more? Check out our article, or open up those spoilers below. You know you want to. Do it. Do itttttttttttt.

Aren't the XP Fever missions a bit weird?  Huge XP rewards, but only in tanks that don't need XP?  Sure, it'll be converted to accelerated crew training or Free XP, but only a small portion.  Can't really be exicted about it unless it's available for a tech tree tank that you're grinding, and it's not. 
 
PSA 1:  The only exception to what I said above about the XP rewards being somewhat useless are the few Tier X tanks which are not automatically Elite and have an extra module or two to grind.  These are the Batchat, E 100, AMX M4 mle. 54, and Type 5 Heavy.

 

PSA 2:  If you're trying to get the most value for your gold, the Crew Training/Re-Training isn't it.  If you retrain to 90% for credits, it can take as little as 1 good battle battle with an x2, XP Booster, and Crew XP booster to get them back to 100%.  Training/Re-Training for 75% or 80% only takes a little bit longer, and isn't worth 100 gold in my opinion.  The only exception is the Commander if you don't yet have Sixth Sense.  I wouldn't want to delay that (except on Arty where it's not important).  Save the gold for all the other things; skill resets, demounting, camo, garage slots, role retraining, etc.

All the blocks of XP missions below X are on premium tanks so only good for crew xp or conversation.  Still, that's a good way to get crew skills up.

So. Has anyone noticed the date discrepancy? The web site says the Madness missions run until Oct 29, 4:20 PT.

 

The game client says they run until Nov. 1, 4:20 PT. 

 

Which is correct? Can we as usual assume the client is correct but WGNA is once again wrong about the mission specs?

Are you suggesting that we are going to whine and complain about these great discounts and missions? :P

I got the message. This company looks struggling so much to survive. It looks really painful. There is no strategy to comeback except milking from existing players.

 

    - Every mission and discount are Money Grab.

    - There will be no credit discount on crew retraining anymore in WoT NA.

You are correct, it is the 1st. I will have our team update the article shortly. Thanks for pointing that out!

Lol.  Well, at least they gave us a conversion sale to go with all that XP on elite tanks, right?  Obvious money grab is obvious,  but I won't complain too much,  as they just had the generous twitch thing.

Thank you for checking into it. I like the missions, btw. Always happy for some extra xp for helping grinds.

I always get confused over XP and crew XP?

 

What is better for crew training 50% XP or 50% crew XP?

 

This is on premiums, of course, because this is WOPT (World of Premium Tanks).

How does one get into Grand battles in tier 2-9 tanks?  Other than that this is the best weekend special in months.

 

  • Must be in a Premium Tier VI-VII vehicle
  • Grand and Random Battles only

Swollen, none of the XP (except possibly for tier X, but only on a few tanks) will help grinds---you didn't read the missions details carefully.

These missions are pathetic; the large rewards will boost one crew member's skill/perk in each of the tier groups, and the +50% is really nothing more than a boost to crew training, as premium tanks are primarily used for that purpose.

WG is obviously not listening to the player base.  The crew training/retraining discounts that we have been requesting has been a CREDITS DISCOUNT, not a gold discount;  and our "insatiable craving for XP" is not so we can boost crew training but so we can unlock tank modules and new tanks down the lines.  You completely missed it, WG.  What you think is good for business is often not good for the game;  what is good for the game, however, will often turn out to be good for business.  4TheBox is spot on--the struggle to survive does look really painful... everything looks like a money grab, and it's a big turn-off to the large majority of the player base who is here because the core of WoT is AWESOME.  Get back to providing a user-friendly, non-invasive, non-controlling game environment that highlights the awesomeness of tanks and business will be fine.

Happy tanking :)

My thoughts exactly when I seen it was only for Premium and tier 10 vehicles.  It would been better served for all vehicles.

Actually, I did. I am going to apply my XP to my crappy British AT 8 and almost skip it entirely. This helps my grind. But hey, you don't have to worry about it, you have it figured out.

Didn't know the AT 8 was a premium tank.
