Nice, if you need a non-expensive, premium tank equal to regular ones, go for Rudy, IS-2 or Cromwell B. The best part is the crew - 0 perk BiA.

Any decently skilled player will most likely already have a crew of the same tank type with even more skills on them. ;)

I guess every reason is good to sell more tanks. WG, tommorow will be anniversary of the Battle of Heligoland Bight, it would be an excellent moment to prepare some bundle with SU-100Y, because, you know, naval cannon. Close enough, huh?

And it actually says as a sales proposition, feature and benefit, "The Brothers in Arms perk available on these crews is considered a bonus perk. This means that it does not count for determining how much XP is needed to acquire further skills/perks. In short, these crews will learn their next skill/perk as fast as a crew that is going for their first one."

 

So WG have now officially downgraded standard crew, WG have introduced a limitless supply of crew you buy for money, that are meant by design to be, and are sold on the proposition of being faster training than standard crew. That's a straight froward abuse of Consumer Rights that WG have intentionally downgraded standard crew and the training put into them and what that cost (via the expense of Prem Account and Prem tanks) that they previously sold to people. It's the same as downgrading a premium tank, it's an abusive and illegal change of terms.

 

When I get round to it, I'm making a formal complaint to Trading Standards about WG actively downgrading things they've sold to force people to spend with them again, effectively having to buy the same things all over again (and to kids, a vulnerable market). This is properly abusive. People need their heads looking at if they trust and spend with this rip off Company.

 

edit - it's properly shocking they've done this, they didn't originally quote that feature and benefit on the Berlin crews sales material, so arguably they weren't being sold on the basis of being an upgrade on standard crew, it was potentially a mistake of programming how they got their free skill and could have been corrected later. Not now it's stipulated as a sales feature and benefit, that requires WG to maintain that they are superior because they sold them as such and on that basis. It's straight forward illegal in relation to them actively downgrading standard crews.

 

How can anyone trust them now. How do you know in a year or twos time, they aren't going to downgrade these Berlin crews by starting to sell even faster training crews? It's exactly what they've already done to standard crew and investment into them with these Berlin crew.

This is how the Berlin crews have always been packaged with the tank, free BIA, start on the true first skill with no disadvantage. WG are not doing anything different to what they've done before.

Bought them when they first came out very good tanks though I had to buy the trio then whine and complain till they offered the ISU122s.

 

The gold back then was an advantage for me used it to buy the Jagdtiger88 before it was removed.

Leftover gold also useful to retrain the four crews.
