If you're good enough, farm potatoes like crazy and carry for a win. If you're a potato, be carried to a win. If you're average (like I hope I am), contribute and reap win rewards. So ya, worth it.

With Camo's flags and premium? Hell yeah. I made almost 30k in total experience in my Alabama one game yesterday.

Sucks when your team fails and it's just a waste.

It only sucks when you get 0XP from detonation or internet issues.

Forgive my still relative newness but I've never heard of a downside to bonus XP before.  What am I missing?

What kind of poll is this?  I thought Debbie Downer left Saturday Night Live years ago?

Of course it’s worth it.  Show a little perseverance and grind an extra game or two, if necessary.  I’m going to unlock another tier X this week because of the multiplier.  Oh God, I think I am going to have to buy it at a discount, too!  I wonder if there is a hidden downside to that?

Only downside is Wargaming has not added and extra 0 to the 200% bonus yet lol. Imagine a weekend of that... Or better yet do it in the middle if the week.                                                                                                                                       I can just see it now school officials would be wondering why so many kids are suddenly staying home " because they are sick" if Wargaming had a 2000% bonus week lol.

 

Not sure why this has the sentences all weird since looks fine when I edit it and then it posts oddly?

Games where the 11 other people on your team are sailing around in circles in your spawn.

The better more experienced players don't want more new players to have tier x ships. They believe tier x to be a safe haven for only good players.

I remember exactly 2 years ago, my Mogami getting torpedo salvoed by a friendly at point blank range before I even earned a single ribbon.  The team won the match so the exp bonus was COMPLETELY worthless.

That is rare, like a unicorn sighting.  Also, you have been able to get the bonus for more than one day...

I was busy that year so I didn't really have time to give all the ships I was grinding a chance at the bonus.

That happened in a game last night and we were in danger of being enveloped. I told them to move their asses and we won.

That’s fair, but people are always just locked in on the potential downside of everything.  If they’d just get out of their own way and enjoy the game good things can happen.

I personally had two monster games in Donskoi XP wise the  last two days and I will get Moskva in time for the sale because of it...

Don't you play co-op? Don't the enemy charge your spawn anyway? :cap_hmm:

I can't even imagine what a downside might be

This thread  is, if possible, even sillier than the "weekend teams" threads.  Apparently there are more bad players on these days (!) - like that is possible!

Well - if you are a good player, you can carry even harder! Reap even more wins, damage, and XP!  You can influence games even more as you are the best player!

The only drawback is if you are equal or worse than the potatoes who apparently come out on these days. Games will seem just as, if not more random, than ever, as you struggle with the "extra" potatoes, who farm you.  Only now you can come and whinge on the forum and have others agree with you to massage your ego.

Agreed.   It was a nice boost (along with the myriad of flags obtained through Santa Crates) that got me my last 150k of fxp to get that shiny new Missouri.   And just a few games away from getting the XP to research the Montana (and discounted too!).   And just a few games away from researching and buying the Baltimore.

 

Oh yeah... a bang up way to finish 2017!

Some believe that 200% bonus days encourage more "casual" players to play, so that the quality of their teams go down and they lose more, similar to the weekend warriors principle.
