How to ease the 'grind'.... Ship xp transferable between tiers

Not that the game is THAT much of a grind, i still believe that ship xp should be transferable between their tiers. Each ship tier is just a more advanced version of their standard model, so the xp from all its tiers should be transferable. This would also give people reasons to continue using lower tier ships, even if they're fully reasearched. Players would still have to use other ships to progress through the tech tree, however They can use that ship's xp on the next tier in the line ie. Simargl xp transferable to Nav, Chernbog, Zmey, etc. For no cost or a standard credits fee. You have the 'convert extra ship xp to free xp' menu, but this costs GP to use. Having the option to 'transfer xp to higher tier' at the cost of a few standard credits would be nice. It would work like the paint schemes and visual upgrades, being only transferable between that class' tier line. So if a ship has 2 higher tier ships to reasearch, its xp can transfer to the higher tier of that class, but not the other. Seeing as the battle bonus Of the higher tiers has a time lock after every match, this option would give players more reason to swap between them and play longer. Everyone has their favourite classes, having the option to use its lower tiers for xp would make the game feel a lot less like a grind and make it a more enjoyable experience.

and i think that should be possible even if the ship isn't completely researched but the full researched ships should have the same 10% bonus EP like the hero ships have, even if the free EP is lower than the hero ship ones

Wouldn't that just promote "noob grinding" in the Recruit matchmaking for Ships in Veteran? Same then with Legendary players in Veteran

To an extent yes, but the xp for lower tiers is much less than the higher ones. This would simply give players a chance to earn some extra ship Xp for that specific line while they wait for the battle bonuses to cooldown. And even with 'noob grinding' the upgrades for higher tiers cost more than enough to make it negatable. You still have to play just as many games to earn that xp, you can simply do it faster by not having to wait between matches to upgrade that specific ship. Not to mention the game is pretty good at machmaking and you'll never be put in a game with someone thats a way higher level than you. Also, the tier matchmaking has got a decent balance as to ship power, Fully upgraded ships and even Hero ships have no real advantage over the others in their tier class. The only advantage comes from your knowledge and skill with your ship and its loadout. Having the option to use extra xp from its lower tier simply gives you more of a chance to learn those skills, and gives you a reason to keep going back to the lower tiers

XP is supposed to mean 'experience points' right? If you're using the same ship, just slightly less advanced, are you not gaining experience with that ship?

one more reaso, you mean, cause the battlebonus-cooldown is long enough to play rekrute while waiting for veteran legendary still not played but if you get faster trough your prefered shipline cause you can use the exp trough the hole line without have to pay real money for changing exp into free it may be more easy to reach even t5 ships and theyr modules, so maybe it could also help to make t5 and legendary used more cause more players get faster into that ships needed

sry for bad english, i pre-party silvester xDDD
