Just reinstalled WoWs after PC died and was looking forward to playing Cleveland at T8. Prior to the release of the patch i been playing her a lot to accumulate free XP to get the next ship when its released and to buy the modules back. Well its all gone :Smile_sad:

All ship XP stayed with the tier, so your XP is now in the Pensacola.

What @Paimentaja said. This was also spelled out quite clear as day in the patch notes, both at release, and during the test.

 

EDIT: Should also be noted that this was exactly the way it was done the last two times such a split was performed (IJN and VMF DD's)

XD well there we have it. 

Also, for further reference: the XP type you're referring to is called ship XP, as opposed to free XP, which is not bound to any ship and can be spent on anything you like. 

Close topic?

......... But you didnt notice it was a tier 8 now, while you had been anticipating it to be tier 8? 

It doesnt make sense, cause you mustve caught something on the update, or you would have been grinding up. 

crap happens though, you still have XP saved up on your pensa now, so that you can unlock the Dallas when update 0.7.6 kicks in. 

Still, i suppose the topic might aswell be closed and/or removed.

Still does not explain away your failiure to read the patch notes. :Smile-_tongue:

 

In fact, you nicely proved that old saying about what happens when you assume.

The general rule (and anyone feel free to correct me if there's been any case where this haven't been the case, even in wot or wowp) is that the XP is tied to the place in the tech tree its earned.

 

I mean, could you imagine the complaints if baltimores had their XP moved to t8? You already got a free jump to t8 and the original t6 xp can still be used for the purpose it had before, to research the t7.

It has been that way every time a vehicle has been moved in the tree, up or down, yes.

So let me get this straight:

  • You did figure out that US cruiser split is coming (presumably through reading about it or by hearing that in some video)
  • You had no clue that the XP keeps its place despite that comment pretty much always accompanying the previous statement that the cruiser split is coming?
