I have a Swedish female that now wont be used in and of the tier 8/9/10 tanks.

 

Is it worth paying the 500 gold to get her retrained from whatever she is (gunner I think) to whatever is needed in the tanks I now have (gunner, RO ?)

 

I know it's up to me, whether I think it's worth it.  I want to know if you think it's worth it.

 

It seems very expensive to me, especially considering BiA now works with SoS.

It is worth it as long as you are paying and not me.

500 gold is anywhere between €1.55 and €3.00 dependent on what gold package you buy...so take one less beer this weekend and use that money to buy gold en retrain her?

You probably have a Radio Operator that you don't need for higher tier tanks, and you may be lacking a female Gunner, if we're talking about the crew you gained in the last christmas special. The Gunner was the final crewmember and a horrible grind to get - personally I gave up. So maybe I'm now in the same position that you are in: I have four flickor, Commander, Driver, Loader, Radio. So retraining the Radio Op to Gunner might make sense. 

Is 500 Gold the regular or the discounted price? If you can do it for 250G in this special, it may be a good idea.

The fact that it is a small amount of money doesn't make it good value.  I'm thinking that once I have a male BiA alternative then the actual difference between them and the female will just be a few % on the 2nd, 3rd skill.  What's that worth ? 10 Euro cents ?  So the re-role is 20x over priced ?

I have all 5 Swedish females, but 2 of them aren't usable past tier 7.

Role changes have not been discounted ever in the 2 years I've played this game.  It's not usually covered by skill reset or retraining.

True, it's pretty stupidly expensive.

Should be 50 gold and not 500. 500 is what you should pay for changing the nation of a crew, which should be possible.

500 is just overshot and not worth it and YES I LOVE ME BEER.

You drop all of the crew skills - 200 gold

You retrain the crew member to 100% - 200

Switching role - 100 gold

 

See why having it cost 50 gold isn't possible?

I do it to get commanders with sixth sense, lets say i buy a new german tank and look in barracks and have no commanders with sixth sense, simple solution, take the radio operator out of my tiger who has 2 skills, replace him with a new memeber for 200 gold, then the one who was in the tiger gets a change of qualification to commander for the new tank and hey presto, sixth sense for my next tank

As the other way is to free XP increase which is 42k xp, which to convert if you dont have any free xp is about 1500 gold i think.

All depends on how you value the gold in this game, i usually buy gold in bulk and therefore its "worth" is less.

But as you said. Its upto you, you have to spend it :)

Well, like crew training and skill reset with free and silver options. It would not be the worst idea to have second option for a role change for 100 or even 200 gold. As in with no gold retraining on crew or skill. So the penalty would be bigger, for those that are cheap.

Just including it in the skill reset / retraining 50% discounts would do it.
