misconception damage and credit/exp earnings

i keep reading that credit/exp is based on % of dmg done not on the pure dmg numbers

but ii have a feeling that it is that it is FALSE

 

so for example if I am in Atago and in one game I killed a Gearing and did 100% of the dmg, which would be about 20k dmg, that I would get just as much credits and exp as if I did 100% of dmg to a yamato, which would be 100k dmg

 

it seems that i would definitely get more cred/exp from doing killing a yamato 100% vs killing a gearing 100%

 

and there are games where i would be doing 50k dmg in Atago to multiple DDs but the creds earned would be no where near the games where i did 150k to multiple BBs

 

it seems that cred/exp earning is MORE dependent on raw dmg numbers than % dmg 

thats why ppl are so happy sniping in their BBs and doing high raw dmg numbers.

It's a combination of both. You get more for 100% damage to a Yamato than 100% damage to a Gearing, but you get more for 20k damage to a Gearing than 20k damage to a Yamato.

it should not be like that, should be completely based on % dmg

Why 'should' it?

I think, because of the heal, you would typically do more than 100% to a Yamato.

Then you also have to add in that you get more for dealing damage to a higher tier ship than to an even tier ship or lower tier ship i.e. dealing 30% damage to a Gearing compared to 30% damage to a Benson while being in a Atago. There are lots of factors that go in to how much exp you get or how many credits you get.

Actually, it's because they haven't the skill to do damage to DDs, or the cojones to get close enough.

Plus all the other stuff that nets you rewards.

Just curious - have you ever 100% killed a Yamato? :teethhappy:

 

I had quite a few games last night in a Murmansk and what I definitely saw is that my returns are very similar in games where I stay behind and burn BBs from afar, finishing with 70-80k damage and games where I played balls-to-the-wall style going into caps and killing DDs and just scoring 30-40k damage before getting deleted.

 

And it's a good thing, because I can change my play style based on what is required at the moment without worrying that it will net me less exp/credits.

XP and credits are not determined according to the same formula, or one would always be a direct multiple of the other (they aren't).

 

From what I can tell, XP favors %health, while credits favor total damage.
