I recruit the free female crew member to a tank, I assign a second skill and find it's not a 100% second skill, so she's actually now less qualified than the Commander I wanted to replace her with! What a waste! You'd have thought that as this is compensation for a WG generated fault in the game they could have got the reward right.

Really a free female tank crew member and (perhaps) moaning.

 

Isn't this just the same deal as a while back when female crew members started? EDIT:  Ok I am old with early on set what's it called..... reading other threads it looks like OP is right.  Apologies to OP.

True dat. Polishing the barrel they learn how to harden the armour until it explodes (as it were).

I noticed the same thing a few minutes ago... But what is more weird, I loged into the game for the first time today and suddenly it told me I have a girl available... Ok, I maybe completed a 15th mission yesterday and did not notice it and it is pointing it out - so I assigned her into a tank and she got SIA 100% + 1x 100% (as always). Right after that I closed the game because I needed to reactivate my xvm and than I logged back into the game again... and it is telling me I have another girl available AGAIN! So once again I assigned the girl into the same tank as a different crew member an this time I got only SIA +0% .... (a few second after the girl with SIA + 100%)

 

And this is not over yet! I started to count my girls in all my tanks and excluding the sweedish ones (received from an event when swedish tanks came) I have 16 girls in total now.... BUT I completed only 15x mission 15th = WHAT? I completed only first three sets of missions for all tank types, which is 3x5... What the f... ? Where did the 16th girl come from? I dont get it...

 

Anyone have the same weird thing?

It's still worth it for a lot of players.

210k to get to your first skill/perk as the BIA is a 0th skill.

So if your moving to a 3rd skill (and one is BIA) and the 3rd skill is on 70%, then that female crew member will be able to complete that 3rd skill at the same time!

Still leaves my commander without SS on my AMX 30, I went back to my currently 85% towards SS commander on AMX 30.

It seem WG fixed them over night.

Yesterday my compensation girl had 100% BIA and 0% into second skill I picked.

This morning I checked and now she have 100% BIA + 100% into second skill I picked yesterday + 0% (of course) into third skill I picked this morning.

I've got girls in the following tanks

 

obj 140

50B

112 (to be transferred to 113 or 5A once WZ-111 1-4 grind is done next year)

plus 4 (!, didn't know how to mix the damn rewards in that christmas tree kv2 thing to get the 5th) in my Swedish tier 1 tank or L60 dunno

 

Should I recruit another commander for a Kravagn? (3 girls will go in STRV) I really don't see the point in female crews now since I've got good crews for most of my tier 10s...4 skills does the job fine. It was OK when you started a new tech tree with 6th sense, but Polish tech tree is not that interesting for me (Italian one would be more appealing, or a joint EU small nations) and I really don't want to buy a Poodle anyway.

 

LE nevermind, will use the chick for the T100LT... got 7 tanks (A20 plus 6 prems) to X2 so easy training! I'll convert the useless Swede radio girl to a commander for Kravagn...rip gold.

I have no idea where I will place the next girl crew, if I ever manage to get any more girls.

I dont want to recruit her before I know where I need her. At the same time I guess I should put her in a tank as soon as possible to give her as much experience as possible...

Everybody and their dog knew that 'female' meant Sisterhood of Steel when she was announced as compensation, otherwise WG could have simply said a 'BIA crew member' as compensation.


 

It's a screw up, she's mounted on the top of the tree like a fairy, with all the other screws ups she was compensating for decorating the lower branches. And knowing WG I bet the tree sheds it's needles! An early Christmas jest for you all there, lets get in the mood for the Advent Calendar and who knows what screw ups wonders there will be! :facepalm:

I saw the free female crew in the gift selection but I already have a couple of PM female crew unclaimed because I don't really need them just yet. 2 questions.

 

1. Based on your comments, am I to understand that this particular female crew is just a standard 100% trained crew, no BIA, no second skill at 100%?

2. I don't need her right now as mentioned, is there a limited time to claim her or can I just let sit in the gift section of my garage unclaimed for weeks or months?

 

Danke schoen

A free girl crew member? Have to get her to command my Panther. I just love the German female crew voices!
