Well, I was playing on my Tier 6 French heavy, "ARL 44," and I had two XP Boosts active, along with another Op that gave me an XP boost. Now, we lost and I got 713 XP. With my boosts that was increased to 4,456. Pretty decent, but I started really thinking about the numbers and I did some calculations trying to figure out exactly how 713 became 4,456. I had a bonus op for 400% xp, plus another op for 300%, along with a minor 125%. Well, to me it'd make sense to just add those all together. Obviously the 125% would add to the 300%/400% as just 25%, right? Correct me if I'm wrong. Anyway, all added together, it comes out to 725%. Yet, 713 multiplied by 725% is 5,169, not 4,456. What DOES equal 4,456 is 713×625%. But how would my overall XP boost be 625% and not 725%? I'm genuinely curious as to how XP boosts add up now, so if I'm just missing something, please let me know.

 

Thank you.

You can't stack multiple of the same type of personal reserve, it allows you to activate them but it simply uses the highest percentage one if i remember correctly

If that were the case  wouldn't that mean that my overall XP boost would have been only 425%?

Well.. to be honest.. i only read that you were using multiple reserves of the same type and i didn't feel like adding up all your numbers so no idea!

So your base XP was 713? If you had premium, then you need to calculate with that in mind 713*1.5=1069. THEN apply the boosters. The final results screen should break it down at least a little for you.

 

 

EDIT this is inconsequential, I have figured it out. See my next post

So only your best 'op' takes action. In this case it is the 400%, and the 125% (is the 25% boost from a clan directive or something?). 713+(713*4.00)+(713*1.25)= 4,456.25

 

Also screw you for posting a math problem. I obsessed about this instead of going to bed on time. :P

Sorry! But I wasn't ever going to figure this out, so thank you so much for figuring this out for me. I'll be honest, the biggest take away I'm getting from this is that the base XP earned in a match isn't just multplied by an XP boost op, but kept as a base value, of which they then add the multplied number to. So: a+(a×b). a being the XP and b being the Op. I had no idea that's how that worked.

any reserve boosts only the BASE value and not a higher value such as premium account etc ... and only 1 type of boost in any category is applied with the highest being counted ... with that said pretty sure this also includes the holiday bonus for christmas as well
