So today I ran into this (black bar due "naming and shaming" rule):

image.png.b7c40bed14ab8ab247a9d472f64cbc26.png

 

I have never seen so low amount of XP earned (besides the 0s for AFK) and even though I was quite upset it gave me an idea...

 

I hereby issue a challenge for 1 XP. If you manage to get PRECISELY 1 xp I'll buy you a month of premium time. (Only for the first "winner.")

 

Rules are simple - must be done in random battles and I have to be able to see the date and time of the battle (battles predating this post will NOT be accepted).

 

Submit your screenshots in this thread and add @Horin728 for convinience ;)

how about instead of challenging people to try and do as little as possible, award someone for *seeing* someone else get 1 exp? Like, you're literally encouraging people to throw games and ruin the gameplay experience of others.

 

I don't think you thought this through.

That is the catch 22... What are you willing to sacrifice to get the month of premium?

The issue with your contest is you provoking other players to do their best at "not playing" while activly joining battles.

Do you seriously think that doesn't conflict with any rules for the game?

So when I see people play like potatoes I can now ask them "Are you doing the 1xp challenge?" :cap_book:

I can give you a guess about what happened - mostly because I've had a match where I scored 5 XP. When this happened to me, it went like this:

1. The battle starts (it was two brothers)

2. I happily accelerate to get closer to the island and sail around the corner

3. My computer blows up (not literally but close)

 

Before I managed to deal with the problem, reconnect etc... I was dead. HOWEVER what I noticed was that I managed to acquire

 - a "spotted" ribbon

 - some spotting damage

 - some potential damage (obviously)

 

Basically, I moved (only a little bit), got something done passively (spotted an enemy that went through the central channel and allowed my teammates to score some damage that got counted as my spotting contribution) and died. This, apparently, was enough to convince the game that I actually played to an extent that disabled the 0XP rule. Still, what I did was nothing: I just sailed a couple km, never firing my guns, never using torps... and while team's performance has some impact, it apparently works as some function of the "personal" XP so if you are useless enough, even if your team does well, your XP will be poor.

How on earth do you get such a low xp count? Even at my most dreadful (which is, frankly, pretty dreadful), I don't think I've got close to that...?

Pretty sure I've gotten 1 XP before via detonation.

Don't think I took a screenshot of it tho. T_T

Damn. Usually I get much more xp than that by going straight to a cap zone in my cruiser and being detonated by the first salvo of an enemy battleship.

Crashing or afk and proximity spotting is about the only way.

If have "zeroed" slow BBs/cruisers that didnt start moving at the match start and got devestated while moving.

If you move but not long enough the game thinks you are afk and you get 0 xp even if you kill a plane or two while moving forward.

Best way: Kaga + small map + Gneiesnau

 

 

The famous "fist blood/dev strike" DD usually gets around 100-200 XP if he reaches the cap before being killed, zero should be next to impossible

Ramming or otherwise damaging a friendly is probably key to get this low. I'm not even convinced it is possible to get just the 1 XP, so you have to [edited]up some more to substract some.
