Its not exactly a new thing but seriously whats the deal with the in-battle Personal Points and the Hangar summary totals being different?

 

eg this battle I just finished, over 14k -> Winged Legend awarded, cool :)

 

 

But when I get back to Hangar the game says 'lol nope' you only got 13,940 and your pilot only gets 13,453 XP despite plane being Elite with 'Accelerate crew training' enabled and a 2% Crew XP emblem enabled & the 2* Daily bonus.

Still gives me the Winged Legend & Token tho.

I, too, have oft wondered about this.  I feel the same way about the figures being divergent, as far as I know.  I'm just glad to get the tokens.  It would be a sad discovery should the awarded point disparity add to and pilot or plane grinds.  I suspect every player wants to upgrade as fast as possible with the minimum amount of (unpleasant) effort.

 

Please, WG/blindfold, explain this phenomenon or give us a link that will resolve our confusion (perhaps 'this particular confusing point' would be more accurate as there are always confusing parts in WoWP).  Thank you.

Unfortunately, the issue has been around for some time. I passed along the feedback to the developers team some time ago and they have been working to trace the reasons why different numbers are displayed on the victory/defeat screen and in the post-battle statistics. The right score is shown on the victory/defeat screen as you can understand from the given medal and Token reward .

Thank you for the response despite the persistent nature of this particular irregularity.

i still think it maybe a tiny reason why new folks leave...    vets just ignore it or tease each other about it

 

but new folks think they're getting robbed somehow, and it's worse when it drags on indefinitely 

 

add an additional 1k to the 1k we already get for sticking it out until the end... and all complaints will end forever 

 

math is hard, so just paper it over?

I have had it happen where it says you got 14000 personal points, gave you the winged legend medal, then you get back to hanger and you still have the winged legend medal but you have 13000+ pts.....that shouldn't happen...

 Yes it has.

 

Normally I just shrug & move on but I just felt kinda aggrieved about that one because I played a good, fun battle after a bunch of not particularly fun grinding other planes, wasn't paying attention to score so was pleasantly surprised to see the Winged Legend in Victory screen so still paying attention when returned to Hangar & wthlower score.

So, the mod answered the question about the Winged Legend medal being awarded because the post game screen is correct and the in-hangar post game recap is incorrect.

 

Regarding your pilot xp:  This is correct, sort of.  Personal points are not XP.  The XP you earned for the match was 6600 (as reported on the recap screen, so it might be slightly low if that's also bugged). Elite aircraft with advanced crew training active get "All experience earned on this aircraft will be distributed towards crew training."   In this case "all experience is 6600.  

 

6600 x 2 =13200.  13200 x .02 = 264.  13200 +264 = 13,464.   Where it gets screwy is that the ratios between the difference of pilot xp earned to plane xp earned isn't the same as the ratio of victory screen personal points to the hangar recap screen.  Since there isn't a line like the personal points = credits, we don't know what factored into the XP earned.  XP earned used to come from "combat points" which WG removed in their effort to "simplify" the scoring and "make it easier to understand".  # russianlogic

# lazyrussiancoding

 

So, my guess is that whatever the determiner for xp is wasn't entirely sorted out in the code when (if?) the combat points, as a thing, were removed.  Knowing how stupid the WG devs are they probably left combat points in and just removed it from the stats page so the player can't know exactly where their "XP" came from.  Sure, you can see where your personal points came from, but that apparently doesn't directly determine XP.  Or, if it does, the calculations are bugged and no breakdown is given.
