I keep having good games in tanker mode, and one of my fellow tankers has a weak game but is awarded more XP than I get.

 

Normally I don't care about XP. But these Op goals are based on XP, and the XP is accruing slowly.

Driving Scourge. I killed 3. 12-12 shots fired, penned. Did 3,998 dmg. Blocked 4,380. 

 

Vengeance kills zero. 6-12 shooting. 1,071 dmg. 136 assisted.

 

Vengeance earns most XP in match. I earn 2nd most. I have observed strange (to me) XP awards in almost every match. Makes me want to push the Vengeance off a cliff next time I see one.

 A roll of the dice by the looks of things.

 

Edit,   just won a game and got 88 xp.:mellow:

 

Another edit.   Losing team,   bottom player gets 135 xp

                          Winning team,  top player gets 68 xp

Audace AMX also seems to be an easy top XP earner. I had nearly 7,000 dmg in the Scourge in a battle, destroyed 5, blocked 6,000. Did nearly all the work. The Audace is afk for 90% of the game. Audace wakes up, comes over and takes a few shots at the tanks remaining, kills a couple of the crippled ones, and ends up with about 2,000 dmg. I earned #1 XP in battle, but Audace was in second place with a small margin difference -- 680 xp at #1 vs. 650 xp at #2, roughly.

 

WG, what is going on here?

Ariete gets an inordinate amount of XP, too. Your screenshot is case in point

Look how much more XP Vindicator was awarded compared to VK 100.01 P and T34 Black.

 

WG, please explain. TY!

Well building up crews doesn't go fast, played many games in tank modus with a 3 skilled crew and the 4th hardly moved up...

I have done WG's work for them and identified a possible explanation. I have been playing my own Tier VIIIs. I tried queue as random "Tanker," and presto I earned large XP. If my observation is correct, it's better discovering it now than later. However, it would have been nice for this inequity in earning potential to be clearly outlined from the start. If I missed it, my apologies.

 

tldr: queue as Tanker if you want more xp

this is very true. I did a tanker picks got in the surface (which I don't own) and got 1100 so double anything I got yesterday.

 

Is it so new players are encouraged to play?

Sucks as I'd rather play with a proper crew and grind some tanks, but as rewards are xp based, I'll be playing at random I guess

Yeah those xp numbers seem legit.

Yes. It makes little sense to apply a penalty to players driving their own vehicles and own crew. But... If WG meant to do just that, they should let us know. I wasted a couple hours, because I was earning the chump-change every game, win or lose.

500 XP a game, in the end its not bad for the requirements.

5K or 10k or 15k means 10 games and you have your 5K.

Since the games are fast it just takes a couple of hours i guess....
