Is the crew XP cumulative? For destroying 10 enemy aircraft and achieving Final Strike it should also complete the Sky Hunters and Steady Start and award 50%+50%+50%=150% crew experience?

That is my understanding but I really can't say for sure.  Hint; boosters come in real handy with 3XP days.

Yes, you are absolutely correct.

So, if I am reading it right, you are going to get a total of 4.5x crew XP on that first win?  I have some 4-point pilots that need to be 5-point pilots.  Maybe instead of grinding planes this weekend, I grind pilots?  ;)

 

(Assuming you knock down 10 aircraft - obviously this isn't going to work for bomber and GAA crew, unless you fly them wrong.)

The weekend events don't normally interest me, but dang, this one is insane! Up to 150% crew xp for the missions, plus the X3 for the first win (assuming accelerate crew training is on), plus premium time, plus a 300% crew xp bonus booster, plus a 200% xp booster and I can see the potential for some truly outrageous crew xp numbers. Looking forward to it!

 

Not to mention the extra 50% credits on top of premium, boosters, and the goblin's bonus. This is going to incredible! Thanks WG!!

I probably should consider using those thingees then.  They are starting to clutter up my nice clean hanger.  :P

Yes, it's haughty and its arrogant but you're a battleship with 16 inch guns and Britannia Rules the Waves.  Maybe a bit of arrogance in this case is appropriate.

Recommend using them on 3XP or better yet, 5XP weekends.  Also at times that you can no life it for the hour or the 2 hours depending on which ones you deploy.

Personally, I have to bring a little cooler with 2 beverages into my office when using the boosters.  Fridge is one floor away.  Potty room is 10 steps away, so I got that going for me.

Hint:  an empty water bottle next to your chair comes in very handy.  Just don't get so plowed that you make a nasty tasting mistake.    don't ask

I play a game within the game- hit the battle button and see if I can use the facilities and get back with enough time to check the roster and map before the battle begins

I used to do that but excess hurrying led to damp trou.

This is where I really love premium planes.  You can just roll the pilot through several planes with an x3 bonus and make some reasonable progress in a day.

And some unreal progress using the boosters on a X3 day.

Only have time for #1.  You got time for #2 when you get disconnected after a battle and have to wait so darn long to reconnect :D
