Nothing, you know value when you see it.  $75 for 4 tanks that are $35 each and you get a free perk and 30 days premium?  You'd need 3/4 of them to suck for it not to be a bargain.

Yeah, I pulled the trigger. I already have too many Soviet heavy and TD prems, but the two mediums (Soviet and Brit) are too useful to pass up. Plus they are all tier 6+ so they count for my T-55 missions. When I finally buy a STB it is going to have a serious crew in it.

These ones all have much cooler decals on them. And the British one is actually a better version than it's non-premium base unlike the other 3. And as much as I loved my bobble-head Black Prince it's totally ineffective for training crews. I don't know why but I always mentally pictured it shooting little round cannonballs. Or BBs.

Yeah the original Cromwell was a good tank, and this one looks to be on par or even a bit better. That is really nice for a premium. And the Rudy will be useful for training all the crews I need to keep my T-54 after I unlock the T-62A (put my first girl crew from the missions into my 140).

This is too amusing not to share. Another goon was telling pubbies that Soulfocker had Cromwell codes, and to message him in game to get one. This was how Soulfocker responded-

I only bought the Cromwell B, mostly as a crew trainer since the Matilda BP is Gunk with a capitol G.  The 4 pack was tempting but I just bought the T-54 first Prototype (which is a blast to play because of it's trolly armor) so I didn't need a Soviet med trainer and I already have premium Soviet heavys (KV-5 and KV-220) and a TD (SU-122-44) that are both good trainers and fun to play.

I did the exact same.  I own the 34-85M and have tier 8 heavies and the 122-44.  I'm pleased with the purchase.

You played a fantastic game.  Anticipated well, positioned well, and made your shots count.  Tracking that scout was the game winner.

Nice of WG to screw me on the 268 on-track mission by ending it a day earlier than normal.  It was in the description, but who looks at that when the last 35 on tracks all went 14 days.

Tanks took me about 5000 games to really start understanding.  That's what is fun about the game.  It seems simple on the surface (point and click) but is actually very deep.

Niiiiiice. I had an epic Tiger I match tonight, finally getting an Ace. You need just the right combination of complete stupidity on the other team, borderline stupidity on your team allowing you not to be zerged, and a few lucky bounces.

Heh. Good news- stupidity is in abundance. It is the major factor in about 80% of games played, and the major factor in my skyrocketing blood pressure in 99% of games played.

Yep. I started a new account (with a referral from my original account so I can get a shitty tank eventually) and there are 2 or 3 in every match. If they weren't around I am not sure tier 1 games would ever start  Ohhhhh, I see.

Can somebody explain in newbie terms what i should be doing with crew members for the early tiers? All this training, transferring, retraining, not transferring, picking skills (but only the best ones first cause of diminishing returns) stuff is confusing. For skills I'm currently just doing Sixth Sense for commanders and Camouflage for everybody else on all my Tier I starter crews.

Don't spend gold on crews until at least tier 6.  The performance difference just isn't worth it until then and you aren't in the tank long enough for it to matter.   

If you want to see what skills people are putting on crews for a given tank, check here:

http://www.vbaddict.net/statistics.php?fieldname=creditsn

Search for and click on the tank, then click the Crew tab. 

My rule of thumb is repairs first on meds and heavies, camo first on other types.  Once your commander is up to 100 percent on camo or repairs, retrain him to Sixth Sense (only works once it is at 100 percent since it is a perk) and then start him on the primary skill for his second.

Cool thanks, that site is very helpful. Do you guys just have one crew per tank type per country? Or do you keep multiple crews of the same tank type so you don't have to swap crew among your favorite tanks of the same type from the same country?

I have a separate crew for every tank except premiums as they can run any crew of that tank type.

I've kept all may tanks since I started and the crews with them. If you're going to do that too I disagree that gold training skills on low level tanks is a waste of money. It will take 100 billion years to get crews at those tiers up to 100% and the differences in performance seem to be pretty big.

Also keep in mind you can train any type of crew in any type of premium. They'll take a huge hit to their skill while they're in there but if you do it so only one crewman is from the wrong type of vehicle it's not that big a hit to performance overall. Also, if you have a single crewman lower than the rest of the crew in a premium and have the "extra XP goes to training" box checked that one low guy will level a lot faster.

I personally never kept the tanks I just 'finished' unless I really liked the tank, and hence only have one crew 'per type, per nation', if that makes sense. Although I have the Waffentrager auf E100, I love the Rhm.-Borsig so I have a separate crew for that, that I train up with it and the Dicker Max.

For a starting player I think it may be best to transfer the crew upwards to get the best crew trained in one tank class, and then  put in a fresh crew in the lower tier tanks you want to keep.

I should get back to nature, too.  You know, like going to a shop for groceries instead of the computer.  Maybe a condo in the woods that doesn't even have a health club or restaurant attached.  Buy a car with only two cup holders or something. -Signe
