Does anyone out there know the formulas used to calculate XP earned in World of Tanks matches? Lately the amounts I've earned seem to be wildly erratic with minimal correlation with my actions in the match.
For example, my first ever match in a KV-5 was a win, with 2 enemies destroyed, and earned me a whopping 4000+ xp. I assumed this was normal for a tier 8 tank, but in match after match since then I've never come close to that kind of xp again. In fact, I haven't broken 2k, even with 4 enemies destroyed. Another example would be a recent victory with my M6 in which I destroyed 4 enemies, and even with doubled xp only earned 960 points. My highest ever with that tank was over 2000, and I certainly didn't have 8 kills or anything absurd like that (4 with the M6 was a personal best).
I had a "win" last night in my T-28 where the doubled xp award was 204 points. I didn't destroy any enemies, but I did detect a few. That's a pitiful payout for a victory in a tier 4 tank. I'm used to seeing numbers like that on a loss, not a doubled win.
So, any WoT players out there have any insight? I'm kind of baffled.
