has this always been the case? i never noticed before. the WIN 25 on top ten over 3 days always seemed a grind...so never bothered. but in reading the details i saw that all non-tier 10 tanks must be Premium. im guessing this was always so and i never saw it before. so the 15k Combat Exp is for draining players gold?

 

just another code to avoid in future.

Yes, nothing but one of gold milking missions.

True, but one of the remaining purposes of premiums is free exp grinding, so combining it with a conversion sale strikes me as not a bad deal.  Yes, I would prefer having it work for non premiums too, especially for grind tanks.  

 

My question is, does it have to be the same vehicle. or can I spread the work around different vehicles with the prize awarded to the 25th top 10 winner?  I rarely play a given tank that often in a single weekend.

You can play any tank in the tier bracket and it counts towards the mission. The xp is applied to the tank that gets the 25th win.

It would be a mess otherwise, you would need one mission per tank.

 

If you feel extra grindy you can even repeat the mission.

Because WG forgot about the T-55A and the AE phase 1 would be my guess.  Alternatively, WG didn't want people using those tanks instead of buying prem tanks to use and/or playing lots of T10 and hopefully buying a prem tank and/or prem account.

I previously used it to kick start a new commander so they get sixth sense really fast.  But now that training books are in, this is just a money grab event.

The 1st daily win on the premiums also do not count... now I remember why I usually don't bother with these missions.

This.  It's pretty rare for me to play a tank after the X2/3/4/5   comes off.  Not sure if I'm majority or minority on that.

I think the point is to grind up combat Xp in the premium tank using the Xp Fever event, then convert that combat xp into free Xp, hence why it is only on premium tanks.

It's a gold sink, pure and simple. Very efficient though, combining the 1.5x XP weekend + 40 xp/1 gold conversion this weekend.

Considering that there is the uncommon 40:1 free xp/gold ratio sale this weenend, I'm not worried about the XP bonuses only being for premimum tanks. It makes for a fast way to build up the free XP that I spent on upgrading tanks recently. It's a bit faster than playing Frontline for that purpose, but if you still have rep to grind then FL is the way to go to rebuild your free XP pool without spending gold.
