Howdy,  

 

it it seems to me that it’s been a long time since there’s been a Experience multiplier weekend where we see 3X or 5X for the first win rather than the usual 2X.  I like to save up my Boosters to make the most of them during theses events, but I don’t believe there’s been one for a few months.  Are they a thing of the past?  Just curious if anyone has the inside info, as it seemed that we used to see at least one a month in the not too distant past.

 

Thanks.

I don't think that it's been a few months, but it does seem like there is a greater span of time between these opportunities.

 

 

Hey wait, you use your Boosters?!  WG treats them like Royalty, so I don't dare use them... Same with sparce parts.  I have amassed about

3 million and enjoy the challenge of using tanks that only have the first 3 slots equipped.  Sparce parts are the most valuable currency in this economy, which is nuts.

And silver?  Sitting on 92 million as Pops always emphasized the importance of saving.

Also, it feels like win rates seem to drop while boosters are in play.


 

I'm sorry, I'm old (older than Triarri even) and forgot the question.. what was it again?


 

:)

It's been a minute for sure. Obviously the WG staff has changed its business model since the glory days when we used to get three 2x Xp a day, and IIRC, every weekend was x3 XP.

                                        

                                                                                                                          Keep it old school.

Legit?

I'm working to improve my winrate. Currently: 45% 46% 47% 48%  49% 50% 51%ish >>> 30 days is 60% ... Currently working to become a unicum, and all tips are appreciated!

Waiting again for those x5 days when you can put full boosters on and earn 10k+ combat/ crew experience and 2.5k+ free xp on a good high tier win. I think I earned the equivalent of what would have cost $50 in free exp in the last x5 opportunity in December/January using free purple boosters and playing twice a day. :trollface: WG must have noticed that boosters have overinflated what these higher multiples can do.

Currently Grinding: Obj 704, Bat Chat 25t AP, T54E1, M103, WZ-120, WZ 111 1-4

Tier X Progress: 18/26

last one was around Christmas. Now we don't red x5 or x3 weekends to grind because we have boosters. Also these days you can fully research a tank using gold. Now why would they want you to play loads of games when you can do it all with $$$

                         

              One day Canada will take over the World. And then you will all be Sorry!

I joined in August of 2014 which was only a few months after launch from what I am told. By that time, it was only three refreshes a day. You’re saying they refreshed four times a day before that?

Well. That’s true. No more x3 falling every other week like it used to.

in the other hand I have enough puusters and premium spcertificate to play under influence for 6 months or more, and counting. 

And I can decide to use them anytime I want. 

 

But yeah... good old days... nostalgia...

So, the general consensus is that they’re gone and not coming back.  Seems that way.  Thanks.

They will still do x3 and x5 events, mostly around big holidays. However, they aren’t gonna be doing them as frequently as twice a month like they once used to.
