Ok I've had it I've opened three contains one large, one med and three small and guess what? I've won more boosters that I never use. Can't we have an uprising to at least get rid of this so called a reward. I HATE boosters.

Love them. Actually makes my grinds easier. I have enough premiums, and I can probably grind credits, but the crew and the free xp boosters and the xp boosters help me grind stuff a lot faster.

One of the downsides is that they’re disproportionately expensive and jack up the price when included in a bundle. However, WG hasn’t done that with the past few sales, so it looks like we’re in the clear.....now onto the elimination of hecquing crates.

bro free stuff don't complain...….. in WoT PC there are no freebies, you have to at least complete a mission for any kind of booster

 

If you never use them that's your fault not wargamings


WoT blitz is better than WoT PC imho because no arty and +/- 1 mm.

Not my favorite reward for sure. But they do help the grinds a little. :amazed:

They're fluff added by WG to inflate bundle prices and stuff loot boxes. Then they put them in Daily Crates to avoid that notion. I guess they have some use but it's really an answer to a question no one asked. 

The E-25, skill ceiling so high it's in the next tier (basically, it's OP when used to its max. potential)

The free XP boosters I get in crates are amazing. But I dont appreciate how WG puts them in crates to inflate prices.

Slap those bad boys on anniversary tanks, grab an hour prem certificate, and go buck wild. I got done two months of grinding, if not more, just this past weekend.

Seriously, yeah, Love the purple ones, don't get enough credit boosters.

 

Only ones I don't are those edited spare parts boosters.

 

I have 2k and see no use for them because I have 2 mil spare parts :facepalm:

Boosters are amazing, I don't understand why you don't use them. In the last x5 XP event alone I grinded 1 million crew XP on my lights and about 200k free XP. That's a lot of gold (money) that I just saved by using boosters.

I once viewed boosters in the general stereotyping of uselessness, until I actually got to work with some of them.  They proved very helpful in helping grind crew, tank, free exp and sparse parts as well. 

 

Now I only despise the crates.  I think that was what made me biased against boosters for a long time, since they came in the crates.

I don't ever use them for fear of going full potato.   Just a sitting collection that I keep combining to make Purple boosters.

 

If I was grinding a Line, it might be different.   I have no goals, I just play

Useful for grinds, not really valuable rewards for grind-type events, but.... after grinding the latest line's crews from 75% (tiers 7-10), I STILL have 550 of the purple crew boosters.

 

I'd like a way to convert some amount of boosters of one type into boosters of another type.

These three posts basically sum it up. Typical Blitz player base; whining about the free stuff they get.

Agreed. I have a metric butt-load of crew xp boosters that I don't think I will ever use because I gold crews above tier 6 and it doesn't require very many crew xp boosters to get crews to 100% in tier 6 and lower. I would love to convert those to free XP boosters, which I am always running out of.

Days of golding crews are over... on the last line, I got the crew to 100% in the 113 (not an exceptional tank) in only 30ish games, mostly playing only on the multipliers.  It's not worth the expense any more.

I was against boosters when introduced as the writing was on the wall about another currency in a game that has too many, that they would be fluff in bundles and events, that they would supplant other more direct rewards.

 

Once you accept their presence, boosters are quite useful if you take the time to use them appropriately. A bump to crew xp or module xp alleviates some frustration from grinds.

 

The Free XP boosters are far and away the best boosters and not coincidentally the most rare for me. This past weekend, as mentioned by others, was a bonanza for hoarding that sweet free xp.

 

The improvement I would welcome would be what I think should go hand in hand when introducing more currencies into a game - the ability to manage them and automate them. I would like to assign boosters to a tank and have them remain on that tank only until I remove them. Lets say I am grinding the E50 and want xp and crew boosters of midlevel for all games until elite. As it stands now, the boosters are active for all tanks or none and switching tanks means you can waste them.
