Is the TVP 50/51 worth the grind and cost in comparison to the T50 and if I make the transition, can the crew be moved into this tank with out cost?

Only just elited the tier 9, so can't tell if it's worth it. But as always, you can transfer a crew to a new tank. And retrain them for the new tank for free. But the base % will drop more then. Affecting reload and view range etc. Or you can spend 80 000 credits "20K pr crew" to train them better. So their base % is at at least 90. Affecting reload etc less. Until you can get them to 100% base again by playing.

I don't know why, but the Tier 9 feels like the better vehicles out of the two, when compared tier-for-tier. Shorter reload, quicker unload of the whole clip. Sure, it lacks the 4th shell, but that often is a problem with the 50/51, as you need to expose yourself a tad bit longer. Got both, female crew for the 50/51, original male crew from the line on the T-50 ... I like them both, but I feel more comfortable in the Tier 9.

If you want to train up a secondary crew and you do not wish to spend the gold for the Skoda T-40, maybe buy a Skoda T-25 back and yolo around with it ? Only problem there is that you'd still need 500 gold to make the T-25's Radio Operator into a Loader, but that's not as much as buying a rather mediocre Tier 6 Premium Vehicle.

Sorry, can't agree with you at all. For a little longer clip reload time, TVP gets 1 more shell. Unloading 3 with Skoda takes 3.6s and 4 with TVP takes 4.5s, but the burst potential is completely different. Anyone with about 1200HP left gets vaporized by the TVP and when flanked right doesn't even manage to turn the turret to return even 1 shot. TVP is also faster (+10km/h).

Tier for Tier the T9 will always be better.

 

If I had to choose one, T9 for sure. T10 is not much of an upgrade, one more shot and a bit more mobility.

Playing the Skoda T50 is not a grind. It's a joy and a privelege.

TVP is also a great tank. Transfering crew is the same as with any other, you need to retrain the crew to the new tank. You can use the free option, the 20k silver option or the 200 gold option as you prefer.

Tier for tier Skoda T50 is better, but TVP is definitely worth it. I have also girl crew in TVP and original crew in Skoda. 

 

Just started playing Skoda T50 again last month and could manage 3000DPG with relative ease. 

 

But TVP is absolute monster. The 1.5s vs 1.8s intra clip reload makes huge difference. You can squeeze so much more often the second shot or permatrack than you can in Skoda.

The TVP is basically just a better Skoda in every single way except for pen, where it's the same. Though it's funny, I used less gold by far in the TVP compared to the Skoda, the gun handling made a big difference for me.

I didn't play the tier 9 but i can tell you the tier 10 is one hell of a skill enhancer. Click 4 times for over 1200 damage...

But since you haven't played the tier 10 either, how can you tell that it is "one hell of a skill enhancer"?

I played it on the sandbox. Fastest way to get 1200 damage in 6 seconds.

Also one of the fastest ways to die.

As already said, tier for tier the T9 is better than TX, depends what you want it for though, if just randoms then stick to T9, the TX does get used in CW though.

In 4,5 seconds. 1200 is also the amount of damage for lot of players they score in TVP...

As others have mentioned t9 has better mm and is more fun. T10 while a worthy improvement faces worse oposition and it's not really a popular CW tank.

I forgot it was 1.5s

That's even worse since the bob who fails his way to tier 10 because he heard the 50/51 is powerful can ruin your game if he manages to survive his way to your tank and click you for a full drum before he dies with a boner.

What grind ?

 

Once you get the T9, you are on the home stretch.

And if you have the T9 elited, then by just playing and (hopefully) enjoying it, you will unlock the T10.

 

So it's a question only of creds .... and i personally think it's worth it, i'm aiming for it too.
