Much variety.

We've just had a skill reset this month and the last.

Why not a CREW retrain???


When an enemy Arty "one shots" 2 of your teams' heavies and you're in a heavy tank, you know you're screwed.

A heavy tank should have armor and a big gun, if you don't have either then you're not.

​any ETA on when the platoon bug will be resolved. It kinda sucks to suffer alone in some painful grinds.

Crew Retrain:

I need to retrain a crew for my WZ111-5A, it's been sitting there for 2 months now w/o ever being driven out.

Please?

Likewise. Have 4 crews needing a sale and we get the same thing twice in a fortnight packaged with broken platoons.

...add in the 'Anime tanks are OP but [edited] ASIA' message from WG and it's all getting a bit straw -> Camel's back

Specials are mostly planned by Tan. You guys may want to give his response to Fram's thread a read.

Each to their own but not sure why you'd sit on a tank for 2 months waiting on a crew training special, the game practically throws 200/300% crew training boosters at you.

I actually did that for the first time in a very long time.  6 battles using Prems and the tanks being trained to. Was disturbingly easy. Wouldn't want to make a habit of it though.

 

Also if you are changing tank types it would be a much more major project.

That is a very 'me' statement.. it's all well and good using Crew or training XP / Credit boosters IF you can actually get some benefit from them, I used a triple pack of 1 hour boosters and consequently 'lost' all six games I played, surfice to say they were wasted..

 

the other problem is the cost of crew-re-training to a different type of tank, I would love to use my Cromwell B crew to grind towards the FV215b 183 before it goes but I need a six-man crew..  just swapping the 4 I have will cost 2k gold, plus 400G for the other 2 to work towards having the BIA at least functional..

 

If the Caernarvon AX comes out with the next patch and has a decent 'pack' I might be tempted to invest in it AND changing the Cromwell crew over to the British TD line.

Though the gold saved is not much but it's still GOLD.

Specially when the game usually gives you a little to no gold freebies.  (Though the game gave us a whole month of free gold last month, I want to save it for something else and on a D/C too)

Besides the crew that I want to transfer is a 5 skill crew. Using boosters won't be worth much if you're using such an experienced crew as going to the next skill will take much more than that.
Boosters are worth their gold if you use them on a new crew, specially one's with the 0 skill BIA.

If you are retraining them in a tank it doesn't matter how many skills they have.  The regeneration to 100% remains at the level of a new crew.
