Today, I activated two 2-hour boosts simultaneously (one for double aircraft XP and one for double credits). I'm fairly new to the game, so it's possible I am missing something, but it seemed that neither of the the boosts were having any effect. Screenshot attached, showing the result of the last battle before the boosts expired. You'll see that the pilot xp and the aircraft xp gained for that battle are the same. Shouldn't the aircraft xp have been double the amount of the pilot xp, in view of the boost? boosts not working?

Hard to tell from the screenshot although the rewards do look low for a boosted game but...you only killed two aircraft so...not really a great game (Sorry)

At the end of the boost period you'll get a message saying how much extra the booster provided

 

The other thing to do is to hover over the credits/experience amount (just under where it says "The combat group took control..") and it will give you a breakdown of how the total is made up - it isn't totally clear but you should be able to see some indication

 

Hope this helps

PS: I've never had an issue with boosters so I'd be surprised if they are not working for you

I wasn't for one minute suggesting it was a great game.  The two kills were because I was focusing on ground targets, but that is not what my post is about! Anyway, thanks for the tips. I did not see any message showing how much extra the boosts provided.

I think the extra boosts are listed when you mouse-over the icon far down on left, 2 red stars and yellow + sign ...

Is this forum the best place to submit a bug report, or is posting it on the WoWP Discord better? I'd like to get my 400 gold back.

Hi aauk,

 

Although it's hard to draw conclusions from your screenshot, it seems to me that everything works correctly. To make sure that boosters give you bonuses, you need to hover over an icon in the bottom left corner (stars and a plus with number 4 on your screenshot), you'll see an additional information on the bonuses applied to your account in that particular battle. However if you still have doubts you can always submit a ticket to Customer Support for the team to check your earnings. :honoring:

Thank you, but shouldn't my aircraft xp recieved for that battle have been around twice the amount of the Pilot xp received, if the +100% aircraft xp booster was having any effect? Also, the amount of credits I earned in the whole 2-hour session, was extremely low (less than I often get for a single battle), despite the +100% credit booster I paid for.  Likewise in this screencap of today, where I actually got less aircraft xp than pilot xp, despite +100% aircraft xp boost being activated at the time:

After the boosts expiry time did you get a pop up message saying how much extra XP, credits you made etc?

Pilot receives as much XP as the plane, so if you have bonuses for aircraft XP it all goes to crew XP as well. You can submit your ticket here.

I did not see one: Not yesterday, after my boosters expired and not today, after today's boosters expired.

Where does this message appear? I have never seen any message when by boosts expire.

Bottom right corner in amongst the battle results, repair costs etc

It's easy enough to miss if they expire whilst you are in a battle (or you aren't looking at the screen at the time)

aauk, the way experience works in this game isn't as obvious as at first you may think.  Periodically I check, by means of a rather less simple spreadsheet than you might think is necessary for the purpose, that everything is working.  The last time I checked, which wasn't that long ago, boosters were working.

if any boosters were active, they are highlighted here
