Sadly, you can't convert them for free...

The only thing you could wait/do is the 1:35 converting XP to Free XP event which does save you a lot of doubloons and gives you more Free XP in conversion or you could buy a premium account and mount bonuses on your ship (flags and camouflage that gives Free XP bonuses)

You can't, have to use doubloons to convert. XP is different in WOWS, your commander gets the same xp your ship earns so there is no need to turn it off. This system is more generous than the crew system in WOT.

This system was designed to provide WG with a revenue stream, and there ain't no way they're giving that up.

WG occasionally does a discount thingy.  The standard 25 per doubloon gets discounted to 35/doubloon (or whatever).   But  even with the occasional discount events, unless you wanna invest a  whole lot of real money into virtual WoWS money, all that excess exp you pile up will just sit and do nothing.

since no one answered, there is no way to "accelerate crew training" in WoWs as in WoT. The only thing remotely similar is when you max out a captain and attain all 19 skill points, the xp that cptn earns goes straight to a shared xp pool which can then be spent on any other captain for free.

Designed so well to get that revenue that here's one of the developers talking about how easy it is to farm Free XP with resources available in game:


OP, Elite Ship XP is definitely an underutilized resource in the game.  I think the video clip above gives us a good indication that the development team does not see converting Elite Ship XP to Free XP to be a major revenue stream.  If they did, it would have driven many of their design decisions in a completely different direction.  Signal flags and camos that boost Free XP generation would either be non-existent or very rare, and the bonuses they provide would be a lot lower.

Unfortunately, with the addition of Coal and Steel (which are still relatively new and somewhat shiny) most players either don't see this, or just don't care.  In my mind, it's just plain bad design, but unless something happens that makes it a pain point to enough players, and painful enough that we all talk about it, I doubt WG is going to spend any effort on improving it.

It’s the payoff for a much better system of crew training.  After playing ships, looking at the 3 then 5 then 4 then 5 etc crew layouts in some lines is [edited]insane.  Even though ships doesn’t have accelerated crew training, it’s a much easier way to deal with things.

We functionally have accelerated experience but we get it from the beginning instead of after eliting a ship.

Sometimes WG implies a discount. 35 free xp for 1D. Instead of 25. Still too expensive IMO. 1:100 would becoming to sound somewhat more reasonable as I see it. But I've never seen it happen for free. Then again: overall consensus seems that doubloons have been inflated to neigh oblivion nowadays.

I have so much elite ship experience built up that I would need to spend about $2000 to convert it. :Smile_amazed:

Sure thing.  Stop playing those ships. 

 

Honestly, why does it matter?  It's just a number.

Math is hard and/or scary! 

  • $2000
  • 220 Db/$ (could be a little more)
  • 2000 * 220 = 440,000 Db (!)
  • 25 EXP -> 1 FXP per Db   <--  wrong  which means the rest is bogus
  • 440000 * 25 = 11,000,000 EXP
  • -> 440000 FXP (not quite half of an Alaska)

So your batch normally would cost $1600 to convert, but only $1143 on sale!  Such a deal!

Buy Alaska** now!  Only $4,500 !!

Hmm.  That is kinda scary.

There should be an Xmas sale where you can convert it for cheaper but nary free.

Well there's commonly a 35:1 fxp:doubloon conversion

I could buy a decent used car for what it would cost to convert all that.

 

Not to mention I would likely end up divorced if I even thought about doing something like that.

I didn't say "major" revenue stream.  Please don't mischaracterize my comment so you can make your point.  As far as what the developers "say," well, you can take that for what it's worth.  The fact is that once a ship is fully researched and the next ship in the tree is researched, any additional experience acquired on that ship is completely useless unless you pay to convert it to free experience.  If WG didn't want to make money from this conversion, any additional ship experience accumulated would automatically be converted to free experience, as happens with commander experience once a commander reaches 19 points. They did it this way for a reason.  The only possible explanation is to make money from experience conversion.  Whether it is a "major" revenue stream is irrelevant to the point I was making.

I don't understand your comment about Alaska for $4500.  Alaska is rumored to be 1mil free XP, which would require 40,000 doubloons at normal conversion rate or 28,571 at the 35:1 discounted rate.  Doubloons are available at 25,000 per $100, which is 250 doubloons per $1, so Alaska would cost between $114.29 and $160 if you were to use only converted freeXP for it.
