I'm at Tier III and trying to decide which reward to grab. Progression (Experience bonus) vs Consumables (Repair Kits, etc). Hard for me to decide. I don't think the 3rd reward X5 XP is all that good. I'm just curious how players choose and their rationale. If you just look at what it would cost to get, I see the Experience comes to 17,700 gold! That's a lot of gold. I'm figuring that's approx $76 in cold cash. I never bought Exp before (always got plenty as rewards and haven't used them all that much unless I was rushing to get my crew up fast) so very surprised how expensive it is. The Consumables comes to 900,000 silver. Rather cheap. I don't believe you can actually buy the X5 X5.

So in financial terms it strikes me that the Experience is very valuable. If one had to buy any.

So how would you folks make your choices?

I went with consumables.  If WG are going to be cheapskates and only give 25% discount on consumables going forward, those are worth more to me than boosters.  WG could stop giving me ways to get boosters today and I'd still have 2 or more years of the things.

I have way too many boosters and I have all tech tree tanks. So I go for consumables.

Tier III - New branch of Italian tanks coming. Get 15 x5 XP and at tier IV get the 25 x5 XP. Useful for that grind.

x5's are best if you have some trash tank to upgrade or grind through. If you stack some other bonuses you can end up with 5-10k per victory and that sure helps getting that important upgrade. x5's are actually sold from time to time, its better deal than freexp conversion... if you can get good win in stock trash, that is. 

 

Boosters are good if you just play without specific target in mind. But if you already got fat stock of 'em, then it can become worthless. 

 

Consumables = credits. So it will depend on your account. With prem tank on prem time with credit booster 900k is like an hour of just playing good tonks.

 

I have hundreds hours of boosters, millions credits, and haven't bought consumables in years so I usually go for x5's and use them for crew training via ACT.

I did consumables because my stock is low. The booster I have a few thousand of those.

1. any item that you need

 

2. any item that you do not need (or can do without this time round) but that you can sell the highest price.

 

3. Mr.G0NE made a good point re: consumables

As a F2P player, I got the X5 XP so I can grind a crew back up to 100% faster after switching vehicle. As always, YMMV

this time i went for equipment. usually i do the X5s, but i can sell equipment to build up credits if it is needed for...say...a BlackMarket. thats still a few months off, but im building my credit stash towards that . ( really dont NEED Class1 pieces, Class 2 i am lacking)

 

unless WG does a 50%equipment sale,then i will fill all my slots. probably 5 million on THAT! (at 50%)
