Only 1 year? Do it quick before the event is over! :P

 

Good thing by the way, I probably have some commanders left that crave some 6th sense after their BIA :)

Wonder how much it would cost to increase from 44% on 8th skills/perks to 100%.

it bothers me alot that on the screenshots provided as a tutorial one needs 21k free exp to go from 2% to full.

and reality is much more brutal:

so... thanks for making a tutorial with a mistake, which makes this whole thing look really, really good while it ain't all that good.

A year long special? At this point why not just make it a feature in the game.

I saving my free XP for tanks - lower tiers get fully grided, higher tiers at least not totaly stock. With better tank there are better results, which means higher XP, and thus quicker crew training.

On the other hand, the free XP for crew is cool when a new crewman is added to some fully trained crew - to catch the others sooner.

 

but year long special? that's suspicious... ;-p

I see that you need crew mwmber already 100% normal training.. and onle after that you can aply boost tio special ability...

For that you don't pay with free exp any more. You will need a bunch of spare souls to pay for the deal.

So this is the reason for the end of x2 crew experience in any special for what at least 10 weeks? People now have to use "free" experience normally bought with gold to advance their crews quicker through the absurdly high requirements.

 

Cynical cash grab.Publish a table showing the cost in gold to improve crew skills using this method and people will soon stop using it and as for proper free xp ie the miserly 5% we get using that to improve a crew member a few % is lunacy when its best used to make sure you never drive a stock tank

So is it really going to last until 30th November 2016? Or is it just typo?

My thoughts exactly - unless it is a typo but the text of the explanations suggest that it's here for a year.

 

NB - is there any substance to the allegation that there's be no x2 crew XP for 10 weeks or is it just a bit of good whingery?

I would only use it to get a 6th sense on my commanders....Or full cammo on my lights??

 

.Anything beyond that is pointless as the cost doesnt outweigh the benefits.....Id sooner use my XP for stock tanks as at least you feel the benefit there..

What, for real, I mean what, really.

Ok nice, and thanks I guess, Skoda commander got his 6th sense today, and many many many others will benefit from this.

 

And soon WG realizes that ups, it was only until 30th december 2015, typo again...

well you get 5% of the xp you earn, in free xp, so after a while you get a bunch. Especially with 3x and 5x for first win. And when you tip over to another skill its quite cheap to boost lets say 50% so the next skill is useful right away. For example getting sixth sense on commander as first skill (perhaps with free xp) then also getting 50% camo as second skill. Some tanks arguably need more skills than others on some crew members. For example the 13 90, lorr 40t and BC25t commanders, that have both view range skills, BIA, camo, sixth sense and jack of all trades as most useful skills. the other crew is fine with 3 or 4 skills (BIA, snap shot+smooth ride, camo, working on repair as last skill or optional skill). Heavies really need repairs, so boosting up to 50% on a new heavy tank line crew is not a bad investment. And if you get your second skill you can switch out the skills for BIA first then repairs as second skill, and then boost repairs up a little for cheap. Some tanks (lights and mediums) do well with having extra view range skills, so boosting those a bit could be a good investment, and so on and so on. Also if you need good crews for tier 6, 8 or 10 CW or SH but don't play those tanks in randoms then just spend some free xp you earn in other tanks.
