Crew Skills Reset 9.6 * Don't Do What I Did...

Recommended Posts

Okay where is the secret decoder ring for the using the Crew Skills reset with update 9.6?

 

I looked on the WOT Wiki, forums, can't find how to use it correctly and it looks like I lost some crew skills by doing it...

 

I was tweaking my crew skills for my French heavy line, and I hit reset at the 90% option...babaam! Gunner was 2.23, now he's .97...what da faq? 

 

90% of 2.23 should be 2.007...

 

Am I not using the reset correctly? This blows...so you pay to reset your skills, but you don't actually get the % back you expected? I must be missing something...

 

Picture below to get an idea what I'm talking about.

it's 90% of the xp, not the %.

 

xp scales exponentially per point, and doubles per skill.

Like people already wrote but perhaps not explained so that you would understand:

Because of the exponential growth of skill/xp the first percents of a new skill level (up to 90 or so really) is not hard to get. You might perhaps need 20 000 xp to get the first 20% of skill number two. Meanwhile you might also need 20 000 xp just to get from 98% to 99% on that same skill level. Thus: when you reset to 90% of your total xp earned for that crew member, it will take you past those 23% you had very fast and then chew through the 90-ish on the previius skill level much slower, which is what happened. Once your earn 98-99% back on the crew member you reset, those 23% on skill 2 that you previously had will be back in a jiffy!

And in future if you want to reset your skills do not reset them untill your 2nd or 3rd or what ever skill is next hits 51-52%, coz in this case you get that last skill on 8%+ so you dont have to go trought that painfull 95-100% grind again and 50% you get pretty fast.

Uhhhhh.  XP is xp, whether it's getting you from 0-50% or 92-98% so other than the psychological affect of slow number changes there isn't a difference.

 

However, the difference in skill affect is very different for <50% and for 90%+ so from a gameplay standpoint it's better to reset a few points near the top than at the bottom.

 

Also, the longer you wait to reset the more xp you will lose to the conversion.  So waiting from 98% until 50% is absolutely a bad idea (almost worse than dropping for credits in the first place).
