HP is more important than kills. What tier you are at matters. How well the others on your team did matters, capping bases, defending bases, spotting. Mainly damage though, and to what type of ship matters. 2/3 of a DD will be worth more than 20,000 HP off of a BB for example.

Need more data...What tier battle? So many possible variables to give a proper answer.

In summary kill shots are worth a little bit of XP but if you only finished off the last little bit of XP to get them not so much...the tier of your ship in relation to the tier of the ships you are hitting plays the biggest factor (hitting higher tier ships in a lower tier ship=much more XP). Even solo capping a point is worth as much XP as killing a whole ship...

Do you have any screenshots or a replay?  Even though a Dev Strike (50% HP) on a DD could be low damage, the high percentage would be worth more XP.  Also, if you are not running Premium the base XP you receive is not very high (Premium adds 50%).  Even at a lower tier, it would seem you should have received more.  Without a screenshot or replay, we (and Support) can't provide any real answers.

Were you playing co-op?

Edit - no, not if you earned a Dev Strike...

So then the question is, as others stated, how much damage you did to enemy ships - what % of damage you did.  If the other kills were all low-health enemies that died from one or two of your hits, you don't get much xp from that.

900 XP at Tier 3 might not be that bad...

(Scroll down the linked page for statistics other ships in the Tier and Class)

 

Tier 3 DD avg XP is in the 500’s, except for Campbeltown and Vampire in the 700’s:
