Yay finally. hmm not bat, 2x crew XP always good. The bonus crew XP from Free XP conversion, Is that a new one? I don't think I've seen that before?

 

50% off tier 2-5 is fine, but I haven't bought a tier 5 or less tank in months.

Last year's "Earn your stripes" mission was much better :

You even rewarded GOLD back then but now the reward is a bunch of uninteresting personal reserves. :facepalm:

Just don`t buy the barrack slots, after 9.16 update you`ll be able to restore your dismissed crew members.

Barrack slots !! Gaddammit.  Now I'm going to have to buy some gold.  Been waiting for this for ages.

x2 crew training for every battle - it's like every tank is a reward tank. Very welcome

50% discount on all II-Vs - Not much use to me but great for new players.

Free XP to crew XP - I don't use free XP for this so meh.

 

10 battle mission for 2 Personal Reserves - Cool, thanks.

We still do not know how this will work. It may as well be a limited period of time when the crew restoration is possible, e.g. only a week after a dismissal and so on. Come on, this is Wargaming after all, there must be a catch, and they are not going to close a source of income for them (slots).

For crew restoration:

  • It will be possible for 31 days after dismissal
    • Free for 24 hours to be able to correct mistakes
    • For 30 days a fee will have to be paid so it is not used to replace barracks

 

 

 

Despite what people say, they're not stupid!!!

 

Another decent special, thanks.

This is more like it, when you have overlapping events/missions running you can do as little or as much as you want and quite frequently get more than one reward for a game.

BArracks and garage slots are what should be encouraged by giveaways and discounts all the time.

 

The more slots we have the more tanks we buy grind and so on and then the more barracks slots we need and so on.

It drives players to spend more time and or money.

Every tank needs equipment and every crew needs training.

Im a lost cause I have 120 tank slots occupied and 3 empty ones.

I have also bought barracks slots several times and still only have 1 empty space in there.

 

Its very hard to dump a 100% crew you might just need one day.

Meh? 

 

I'm a new player, I invested crazy amount of time (guides, streams, tubes) and a little money (gold and premium account) in this 2 weeks tho. I'm actually super glad. Is this really a 10x multiplier?! 

Maybe its just a new player thing, but playing without 6th sense is like.. not wearing my glasses. Bad for the learning curve too.. but really, just painful to me. (To be fair, I started with TDs and light tanks.) Right now is a 5x freexp to crew xp going on, i actually rushed it last weekend to get 2 6th sense on the Hellcat and the AMX ELC captain. I wanted to do it one more time today with the 5x, but hey! : )

 

So basicly you can get a first skill with ~20.000 xp! Am I right? That's 800 gold for the convert cost and a little work for the xp (mini marathon is going on anyways). And you probably have free xp cause was a +40% convert bonus last week (in that case the cost is 570gold). Plus crew bonus on the whole weekend? Are you kidding? I'll get a 6th sense in every f' line I started! :)

You can also when you are ready get into the personal missions for more credits and xp when you achieve a target.

You can earn really good crew members, though that takes some time and also free tanks.

Got to be in a tier 4 or higher tank and some of them are difficult without higher tiers.

No reason not to start early while you still have the mad playing all hours addiction.

 

edit sry not xp just credits and consumables.

Oh, thanks!

 

I'm doing those, but i didn't know the girls have.. special extras :).

 

I'm done everything with TD, except the last one. 3k dmg with hellcat/t67 doesn't looks easy to me. Im not really planning going higher with TDs (t25/2 looks exceptionally garbage), so.. yeah, I need lots of luck with that. On the Light side, I'm missing the platoon missions too.

 

Can I get tanks too as reward? :O When? And which ones? :)

The Personal missions are in sets of 15 and with all 5 tank types.

1-15 in light medium heavy TD and SPG

There is a primary objective and a secondary.

Completing any one set of 15 gives you one female crew member.

They come with a free Skill sisterhood of steel its equivalent to Brothers in arms. you cannot mix and match, for it to work you need a full female crew.

They also have enough XP to get your first chosen skill/perk to 100%.

 

You just need to be careful and plan ahead where you are going to put them.

When you get one pick a country crew position and tank.

Say you pick Russian commander on the KV1 she gets sos for free then say sixth sense to 100% and then 0% in whatever skill you want next.

She can command a male crew if you wish and sixth sense will work but not sisterhood of steel till you get more female crew.

 

When you complete 4 sets of missions and have the 15th one completed with secondary you get a Stug IV German TD.

You can still complete the last set for a 5th crew member.

 

That opens up the next set for 5 more crew and another tank and so on.

The missions do get quite difficult and frustrating so its probably best to start them play your normal game and let them happen when they happen.

There is no time limit so no problem there.

Worth it though like if you do the first medium mission which is

primary cause damage to an enemy be on the winning side and in the top ten in your team extra 50,000 credits

Secondary survive the battle extra 25,000 credits

so 75,000 on top of what you earned normally.

 

sry for the wall of text

The xp multiplier is always welcome.

I wish for the free xp to crew xp discount to reappeare when the first Swedish tank+crew are introduced into the game. Would be very nice indeed to be able to give that crew a head start.
