So, there's a sale on free XP this weekend.  Convert 40 regular XP to Free XP for one gold, rather than 25 for one gold.  And the conversion of Free XP to crew XP is still 1:5, IIRC, so that means you can buy crew XP at the rate of 200 crew XP per one gold.  If you need to level up some of your crew, and you have some gold, now's your chance!

I took a look at how much FXP it would take to get my 13th point and promptly dumped FXP into getting the Banshee instead.

LOL, yeah.  The number of crew XP needed past the 11th point are absolutely ridiculous.

But, let me say this:  14- and 15-point gunners are no screwing around.  They are absolutely vicious....

Well, yes, but I don't think I'll get them anytime soon so I'd rather use my FXP for unlocking new planes and pushing them straight to elite rather than suffering through stock grinds.

 

I only have two pilots and one gunner currently WIP for 15 points though that one gunner might get some FXP thrown his way anyway because he has basically zero premiums to train in.

I see it as good value to help get new pilots up to key 4-7pts (7 = ADE + both Engine Gurus), the 7th pt is pushing it.

Higher levels just black-hole any Free XP you can throw at them but it can help finish off nearly completed grinds.

 

I've converted about 6k of jealously hoarded Gold this weekend off a bunch of planes with spare XP.

Used about 150k for topping up a couple of my new 5pt pilots to 7pt, probably going to use the rest getting several new Pilots up to 4pt.


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

burned 1100 gold to recover xp from freemiums that I flew before I knew about the crew acceleration checkbox.  Still a long ways to go on THAT project, but it is what it is.  Was glad to see the bonus rate, I'd been waiting for one to show up.

I was not aware you can buy crew skill points with free XP? 

 

Speaking of spending gold - hangar slots are half price - I bought a bunch last night.

I wonder if that means they are only 9 tokens instead of the traditional 18 tokens:bajan:

Yup.  1 FXP = 5 CXP.

I'm sure it's clearly mentioned in the article that discount applies only when you use gold to purchase a Hangar slot :)
