Good news, may have to buy myself a FCM to train my cheese eating, wine drinking croissants.

Really good change WG. This is a step in the right direction for retaining paying customers, and will net you some more in the forms of new prem tank buyers for sure. Honestly can't see any downside to this. It only seems right to have premium tanks become even more efficient crew trainers as that is the main reason most people use them apart from the increased profit. I'm happy.

A downside is those who already played 5k games won't get the bonus retroactively.

 

And I'm getting really concerned at how WG is throwing their specials to get players to spend money

Better crew training? Good, this is a step in the right direction!

Hmmm, no money bonus too?

 

Oh well.

The only downside of this new feature is some countries still lacking decent trainer tank. I don't think i wanna train my Comet or future Centy 7/1 on matilda BP...


Back to World of Tanks for now.

Nice, but can i ask why the difference is relatively small between tier 6 to 7 and then 8. It seems like from those graphs you may as well derp around in the lower tiers for the increased XP, or is crew XP greater for higher tier vehicles... (maybe a silly question but it doesn't seem that much greater and tier 8 prems are much more difficult than tier 7s in general (thinking the ones which are not tier restricted, or maybe i should just give up and get an is-6 like everyone else)).

Tier 8 still give you more exp/ game anyway according to graph.

Yeah I know, but given the cost and fact that facing off vs tier 10s is a damn site harder than lower tiers facing tiers higher than themselves & the games often go for longer it just seems odd that the difference between 6-7 and especially 8 seems small.

They are meant to get it too, they just didn't bother with a graph.

 

@_MadCow_ - The higher tiers still give a greater advantage in crew training over the lower tiers. Up to you if it's worth the cash and different battle conditions.

nice changes, looking forward to it.

Even with the boost the exp will still be really low compared to the higher tiers.

It's really great, but the French still don't have any premium light or medium tank to train crews.
