On the loading screens, it keeps repeating that both crews (Franken and Stein) would get enough experience for three skills, yet my top crew is sitting with 60% repairs as the sole one.

 

Now is that just me getting shafted, or did Wg screw up as usual?

They changed their mind and let their awesome ppl handle it.

Nope.  Nobody did.

Guess Wg found it too complicated to change the loading screens then...

 

Thanks for the replies, VarzA and Homer_J, appreciate it.

If they got three skills and you couldn't keep it,there'd be floods of rage here.

 

Giving out a three-skill crew, heh. Would be cool to keep them as we normally get to, though.

The highest i've got is 72% first skill, you only get 5k xp for 5 wins so when you get above about 65%, progress is non existent, to get 3 skills you'd have to play in your sleep

 

mind you i generally only play till 5 wins most days, (a couple of times i did 10), it's to frustrating to play more

 

Edit: just checked, it's actually 75%

Ah, that good ole 8-bit mode where I got 3 good crews with 2-3 skills for the same amount of time I 've wasted on this hallo-crapmode.

I wonder why WG never gave us the same thing again.:trollface:

I used those events to train some commanders for SS

Wintermode is literally the only good event WG ever did, everything else is just a total waste of time completely unrelated or profitable whatsoever to the regular game

 

Karl was a nice meme, nothing more really

Chaffee Racing was cool, competitions and stuff made it nice but it was also completely filled with RNG (instead of large HP pools they just made your guns stupidly bad so penning tanks with regular ammo was such a gamble that most people ended up spamming gold)

Football was fun for about 3 games, nothing to gain and it was way too messy.

The moonthing was also a complete disaster, why would you waste your time on it?

If they do the same Christmas event as last year this Christmas wont be so bad.

 

On Christmas Day what would be nice is a Tier for Tier Premium Tank Exchange rather than the current percentage based thing they do now.

Nobody will finish the 1st skill anyway. Even if you get the daily 15k on the same tank, at the end of the event that crew will have 210k XP, which is just under the required for the first skill to be completed. Not even playing during your sleep will matter.

Anyone else try the 6th sense directive in PvE?  It didn't seem to work for me.

The ONLY reason that I may have continued to play either of these modes/tanks would be for crew skills. In the Chaffee racing, I got first perk/skill complete- although I used them in US SPGs- in the Winter mode, I got three crews fully trained although I have only used one of them so far.

 

As I have no idea how you get ANY XP in either of these modes- I had ZERO in around ten to fifteen games- (and you can't keep the crew(s) anyway) then I just gave up completely. The little prizes were nice, but I've got better things to do.

By winning 5 games in a day.  Then by winning 5 more in the same day.  Then by winning 5 more in the same day.

That's where I've been going wrong then! Not the playing part, I might add.

the 5k exp which couldn't be used for ACT so will end up on the tier 1 French tank was incidental to the 100k credits every time.
