Got some boosters in my Santa Bags.  After reloading the game, I have access to them.  I figure in an hour you can get 3 or 4 battles in.  Maybe 5 if they are all stomps.  

 

So, how do they stack with daily bonus and premium account bonus?  I am having trouble accounting for all the bonuses, and if they are calculating correctly.

IIRC In World of Tanks the boosts apply to the base values after premium account bonuses are factored. Any other Daily/Special event bonuses are not included

 

So if you trip a 100% XP boost on a x3 XP weekend you'll get effectively x4 XP on that first win and double XP on all other matches

I quit using them.  Too many issues in the game meant they got wasted.  Every time you spawn with no controls, or go black screen into a battle or......................fill in the blank.  They run in REAL time and if you can't battle, too bad, so sad, according to WG.

never used them, with all these bugs I simply can not fly enough in an hour ....

you can see if they work by hovering over experience numbers in the after battle, that also shows bonus from the ice statues etc ...

 

from the 2.0.9 patch notes :

 

Added a new type of consumable — boosters. Boosters provide a significant increase to rewards earned in battle for a short time. The following types of boosters are available:

  • Upgrade Implementation — aircraft experience  +100%. This consumable also increases all derivatives of aircraft experience — Crew Experience and Free Experience.
  • Intensive Training — Crew Experience +300%.
  • Air Reconnaissance — Free Experience +300%.
  • Procurement System Improvement — credits +100%.

Each booster is available in two versions: for 1 hour of real (not gaming) time for 150 gold, or for 2 hours of real time for 200 gold. If the game server is unavailable or under maintenance, activated boosters will be compensated.

Boosters can be purchased and activated in the upper left corner of the Hangar, in the account menu.

“Ground Verification” consumables on players’ accounts are converted into one-hour “Procurement System Improvement” boosters at a rate of 1 booster for 3 units of consumables.

“Aerial Verification” consumables on players’ accounts are converted into one-hour “Upgrade Implementation” boosters at a rate of 1 booster for 3 units of consumables.

When converting, the number of accrued boosters is rounded in favor of the players. For example, for 4 units of old consumables, the player will receive 2 boosters.

I have a bad habit of starting them just before the maintenance window ...

Boosters are a fun concept, but the point you are making is spot-on.

 

Having the boosters run in "real-time" knowing the issues with this game just shows how out of touch war gaming actually is.

 

It shows a state of oblivion that is almost impossible to achieve by accident.

Is there any way to obtain boosters for free without spending 150-200 gold? I see that I only have 1 booster in my depot.

C'est magnifique, mais ce n'est pas le SerB.

Ah ok. Thank you for the answer. Have to make sure I play every day or use tokens if I have to for a day here and there. Those weekly crates are easy to get as long as you log in. :-)

When I have em', I use em'. They can pay off big time. Mine usually do.  :)

I have a bunch of boosters I never paid for. Figure they're no good unless I use them

I only started using them again if it was during, at least, a X3 weekend.  Mitigates the 'real time' penalties.  If (big IF) you have no issues with the game or RL you can get in 5 missions an hour.  I have, on rare occasions, managed 6.
