Do you have this habit to hord Rustless Fire camo (250% captain xp) and Dragon flag (300% captain xp)?

 

I find this funny that I am very reluctant to use them...

Flags are to use.... Red Dragon flags have helped on my crappy NO grind, Dragon flag for com exp useful on ships where you want to make some progress - I try to be careful, use on ships that I perform better on or ones that I really hate to try to speed the grind.  Have been using the credits flag on my Missouri and have quite a few games earning over 1 million credits.  Trying to use them to leverage my Premium time ( which is running out).

nope... use them...they have no value sitting in port.  Trust me WG will sell more.  Put them on 19 point capts now and Pharm elite commander xp

They make sense to use at high tier when there are xp bonus events going on to farm crazy amounts of elite commander xp.

I'm closing in on my first 19pt commander.   Definitely using them to hasten the grind.  Once at 19, I'll keep using the flags to build elite XP to leverage on other captains to get them to 19.

Yup, I was running every commander XP bonus flag I could get my hands on playing Halloween Pt.2. (no 19-pointers yet)

 

Didn't do it for Pt.1 because T3 doesn't award enough XP.

I only use them on my best ships with my best captains to maximize elite captain XP.

My advice: horde them until double xp weekends or events then use them all for the first victories (they all stack and a decent win can pick up 30k elite xp per 100% win)

I've tested this idea, doesn't work that way.  it goes off the base exp you get (premium time has the normal effect).   The x2/x3 doesn't add more.  Since it is still 250% or 333% more off of the base exp of a battle.  so a 1k exp win is 2.5k and 3.3k bonus commander exp.  it is added to the x2 and x3 only becuase normal exp also gives commander exp.  So it looks more, but the benefit is the same any day of the week.

Same thing I do. Gets my captains up quicker.

*looks at XP breakdown*

hmm, so you seem to be correct... though the 100% bonus stacks into the ship's bonuses section. the 2nd part of my advice still stands, equip all the flags and camos if you're XP farming, don't use them separately.

Now when it comes to FREE EXP farming, those do stack with the x2/x3 weekends and those are well worth stacking up and hoarding for...  10-15k free exp wins... are glorious.

I save extra XP and Credits cammo and flags, for Events which require them.

 

I play mostly PvE and save the flags and camo for PvP games or the scenarios.

Once I get a captain to an acceptable level for playing at mid-high tiers (10-14 points, depending), I tend not to load that captain up with captain xp bonus items until he is on his final ship, because the more advanced the captain the greater the retraining cost.  As a result, I often end up hoarding dragon and restless fire as well - I think I currently have about 250 of the first and 100 of the second, plus about 20 more FTW camo (great at top tiers) in addition.

Restless fire, dragon, hydra, red dragon, etc.

 

40 to 50k captain xp. Its awesome to get more elite xp or train up a captain that is close. I save the FTW camo for weekends in my fiji and belfast just to fast more elite xp.

I do that though. I realise that the bonuses aren't multiplicative, but I hate grinding, so when I do, I want maximum gains at the same time.
