Hi guys

 

Ive only been playing for a couple of weeks, can someone please explain what the. Free  experience is for and how it works, Can I spend it or use it to buy upgrades etc?

I have gone into the screen which shows how. I can buy or exchange regular experience n gold for free experience but I cant seem to find out how I use this free experience.

 

If anyone could provide a simple explanation it will be much appreciated,

 

Many thx,

Wayne, aka Wanyekest

Usually, the experience you earn can only be used to unlock stuff for that particular tank. Free experience can be used to help unlock anything anywhere.

 

if you go to unlock something you will see it lists the experience you have with that tank, plus your free experience, both of which can be used to unlock items. If you don't have the experience with that tank, the system will take your free experience to pay for the upgrade.

For every battle you receive XP, 5% of this total goes to free XP. (I think it's an additional 5%, not removed from the battle total).

 

Free XP can be used to unlock anything from tanks to modules (guns, tracks, engines etc.)

 

BUT NEVER USE FREE XP TO UNLOCK TANKS.

 

You'll unlock the tank eventually just by playing, it's better to use your free XP to unlock modules on your next tank, so that it's not a pain to play initially.

I concur, use the free xp to unlock the next gun or so on your new tank, instead of using it to unlock next tier tank.

never use Free Xp for tanks on PC, on blitz, since you don't have to pay for already bought parts from another tank and can mount them immediately, using free XP is slightly more viable.

The only reason that you lost... is that you p***ed me off.

2 questions from me regarding free xp:

1) My KV-1S is now an elite tank (so no more modules to upgrade) do you need to use gold to change any experience gained on that tank into free experience or do you only get free experience once a tank is at elite status, rather than still getting normal xp?

2) Is it the same with premium tanks (ie ones you buy with gold)? Is the xp you get in battle when playing as them free experience or just normal experience that you need to use gold on to turn into free xp?

Yes you need gold, 1 gold per 25 xp

If thou want a reason for not using free exp -
Always keep in mind that when you are using free experience, you are losing credits and badges ( this statement might have confused you ..... Continue reading). Let me give you an example - I have an SU 152 with me (with 15k experience more needed for ISU 152). If I use my free experience, I will be skipping a few battles (around 20?), that means I won't get any credits for those 17-20 matches and if on an average, I get a profit of 20k credits per battle, I'll be at a loss of around 20(battles) x 20k (average profit) that is 400 k credits. Instead of using my free exp, if I put in some effort, I'll end up getting more credits (which I can use to buy equipment!:glasses:), getting more free exp (for upgrades), avoiding that huge sum of 15k free exp:coin: [and if later WG decides to give 15% off on tier 8 (this happened to me today:tongue:!!!!!), I will be saving credits ;) and in those 17-20 battles I'll also get a handful of badges:medal: ]
I did the same with my SU 100 (and later bought the equipment for my SU 152 which reduces the loading speed by 10% -a much needed for the stock gun:playing:).
Hope this helps you!

Point is you should use free experience only to skip some  awfull ( lower tier ) tanks and to research equipment for higher tier stock tanks that start with really bad configuration; both things just to save your health and nerves.

Hy,

It's just normal xp until you convert it with gold, even in premium tanks. It's the same..

What you described is not free experience and it is crew/combat experience. A tank when it is elite, it's generating crew / combat experience. The reason that it disappeared it is, most likely, because you converted it, along with gold or credits, into crew skills, you accelerated crew skills.

 

Free experience is the one in yellow and it is located on the top right corner in your garage.


Thank you for removing timers and spare parts, now please do the same with Military Honor !
