hello,

 

a small question.

standard value for free xp without any of modifications are 5% of earned ship xp. i.e.  1000 ship xp earned giving 5% standard free xp, thats 50 freexp at post battle screen.
naval base bulding of design office offers a maximum bonus of 25%, in addition to standard 5% bonus in sum its 30% free xp bionus

now we having the halloween event szenarios, and every after battle results calculation giving only 6,02 up to 6,05% free xp bonus showed at post battle screens
by fully upgraded design office, where are the rest of offered free xp bonus?

other naval base bonus offers working correct, by same calculations, clanbonus for ships xp calculating works correct, clan bonus for commanders xp calculating works correct, clan bonus for post battle services calculating works correct
only the free xp bonus having wrong results

now the questions: WHY? n HOW?

Increasing 5 by 25% is 6.25% as Mr ColonelPete says.

 

It isn't an additional 25% flat, its 25% extra added to the 5%

 

I did wonder the same some time ago....!

thx for this answers

i do not understand why is wg website and naval base talking and showing plus 25% free xp per battles for ships of all tiers
better description, and more truth description -  will be plus 0,2% free xp per battles for ships of all tiers

warships calling of free xp bonus

no, it's showing exactly what it does. You want the bonus to be +500% free XP per battle, which would be hilarious. Maybe you should live up to your name a little more...

It is just math.

When you have 100 credits and add 25% more credits, you calculate 100 * (1+0.25) = 125.

 

When you want to add percent together like you propose, you must add percent points, not percent.

No it wouldn't.

Imagine a battle where you have no other bonuses and you would receive 100 free XP.

With the bonus you receive 125 free XP

125 free XP is 100 free XP with +25% bonus.

 

It's also consistent with other freeXP bonuses. Papa Papa gives you +300% modifier to your free XP, for example - and kicks in in exactly the same way (affecting the way final freeXP is calculated based on base the freeXP determined based on earned ship XP).

 

The only confusing thing is that in a few places the % increase to something is actually a percent point increase. This is the case for fire chance and flooding modifiers - if anything, it should be these that need rephrasing to not be confusing (a signal that is described as giving your HE shells a +0.5% fire chance actually gives +0.5 percent point chance).

Maybe WG should be a little more precise if the various boni they assign will be calculated by adding up the percentage values or by multiplying them, repectively if their "bonus" is assigned to the total value or to the already existing bonus?

 

On the other hand plus 25% sounds a lot better than plus 1.25% from a marketing point of view...

 

For OP out of the wiki:

Quote

 

4) Free Experience:

EF = ES · 0.05 · (1 + ΣMEf)

Where:

  • EF - Total free experience earned from battle
  • ES - Total ship experience earned from battle
  • ΣMEf - The sum of the coefficients of the modifiers to free experience, which include:
  1. Usage of Signal Flags
  2. Usage of Camouflage
  3. Awards for the completion of Combat Missions / Events

You recieve 5% of your exp as bonus free exp. Thats a hard fact, a game mechanic and unless WG changes that, it always will be so. All further boni apply to those 5%.

Same could be said to for base exp.

 

Example: after a battle you get 1000 exp without any bonus (flags, premium account etc.). Additionally you get 50 free exp.

 

Now, if you have a free exp bonus (flag, mission, clan base etc.) those boni apply to those 5% of your free exp.

Example you get your 25% bonus free exp.

 

So if you get 1000 exp, you get 50 free exp (base) and another 25% of your 50 free exp (12,5 free exp) adds up to 62,5 free exp.
