200% first win and 100% free xp is great! Can we have it more often?

I love it when Wargaming has these events - the 200% xp and 100% free xp are great!

I absolutely play more when they are running. Keep up the good work.

This wasn't even that great of a game (2.3k base xp) but with flags it was awesome results :)

Clan battles give more and you don't have to deal with all the potatoes randomly rolling their face across the keyboard on your team.  I dislike the special events for the people it brings out of the woodwork.

I cry a little inside when I see so many XP flags and camo used on a premium or tier 10 ship.  The WG accounting department probably licks their lips though.

I think it's likely we will see this more often. WG is trying to get more people into high tier, providing a shortcut makes sense.

Why is it wasted XP?

I'm pretty sure that the 16k free xp wasn't waste (nor was the 33k odd elite commander xp).

I didn't say free or commander.  Just let me be cheap!

I load the same flags.   Ship XP is the last concern.    The FreeXP and Elite Commander XP is the primary focus - gotta work on building more 19pt captains!    And with the 200% first win bonus, that's the best time to use the flags (if freeXP/elite commander XP is what you're trying to build).

I use XP boosting camo on ships that I'm grinding - maybe an extra flag or two.

I think they are throwing a bone for people that are making a push for Missouri. They’ve had a ton of FXP events since they announced she was leaving back in November.

First win bonuses don't provide any benefit to run captain xp flags.

Raising xp also raises free and commander xp.

So sure, the 25k normal xp doesn't do anything, but the 20k free xp does as does the 40k commander xp.

What is really fun is when you have the 400% xp mosaic camo and red dragon equipped with all those other signals.

I'm aware, but I wasn't talking about them.  On these weekends, I put on all the camo and flags on my tier 9s mostly.  I'm still grinding them and there's a minimal overall difference between 9 and 10, so there's no wasted XP of any kind.

Not all. He got a great free XP haul, as well as either edging his commander towards 19 pts, or generating a bunch of elite XP for other commanders.

Eh.

I play boats I like. Some of them are premiums or tier Xs.

I must be doing something wrong. I don't get the "look at my screenshot of 30,000 exp and 20,000 free exp."

I'm lucky to get 10,000 exp with a premium and all the flags. And that's on a win.

How much base xp do you get?

I think this was around 2200.

Using base xp flags/camo greatly enhances the reward for free xp and commander xp bonuses....so while its seems wasted, it's really not.

Someone did a breakdown on reward bonuses, but no idea where it is now.

The 9 cruisers are not anywhere close to a T10.  Some of the DDs and BBs, sure.

That said, why not farm the 20k free xp and 40k captain with your T10s?

I've got tons of xp camo and flags, and no lines in really concerned with grinding.  Half of the Neptune and Saint Louis and I'll have all the CA. Not interested in BB and CV.

+1 this is kind of the same situation as me.

None of the lines I've not gone up really are compelling to me right now.

I will just keep playing boats I like and getting more 19 point commanders and/or hoarding elite/free xp :)

And yes it is possible to get a.... CQE in the... Kutuzov? lol! 

Add in another 32k elite commander XP too.

I'm not quite good enough to get games that good yet. 

But all these XP events have let me progress extremely fast. Pretty close to my first T10 now, just a few more battles.
