Folklore or not: Do bottom-tier players get a XP bonus?

Do bottom tier players get an XP bonus? I have heard essentially folklore about this ... no confirmation. In the spirit of being open and encouraging players to not exit out of a game; a definitive statement from WG would be nice. Even better would be if WoWS told a player : "Tier V in a Tier VII match you get +x% XP bonus"

Yes when a lower tier ship deals damage to a higher tier ship there is a nice bonus. In reverse a high tier ship makes less damaging a lower tier ship.

Been explained to me:

 

1. Do HP damage to higher tier ships- more XP

2. Kill higher tier ships - More XP.

Yes, I love it when my Kamikaze R is bottom tier in a T7 match.  T7 ships are far less maneuverable and provide far more rewards when deleted.

Folklore... sorry. This was other players, not WG people with inside knowledge making their own guesses. Multiple people in the comment threat were guessing that it was the number of citadels for example.

Inversely, you earn less experience when top tier damaging lower tiered ships.

I wish this were more common knowledge so people would stop shooting at the low tier BB's and start taking out higher tier DD's and CA/L's faster.

Well, when you get CC's telling you that, it's about as close to WG as you can get.

Most people playing, including me, really don't know the ships names by tier and we really do not want players to go yolo a higher tier ship if lower tier ships are taking caps.  If ships are taking caps away from your team, then those must be the ships that need to be focused.  Most of the time you can't get players to focus fire anyone much less higher tier vs lower tier.
