Sixth Sense is crucial crew skill on a new tank for me. If i only train the commander, will the crew training go faster compared to training all crew members at the same time?

And how would you train only the commander?

Nope, the rest of the crew will train as well just you won't get any benefit until you assign the training to something.

 

But if you have a well trained crew and can use accelerated crew training then put the commander with the rest of the well trained crew and he will get all the extra exp from ACT.

Trains have drivers, not commanders.

By only select skill to the commander.

Trains have conductors! Same as orchestras. Ergo: trains are orchestras.

But what if an orchestra travelled on a train?

Would that not be a logical paradox?

Causing cognitive dissonance?

According to the Doppler effect you wouldn't hear them coming towards you, but you'd hear them going away, if you had stepped off the tracks.

By not selecting a skill for your crew (having the yellow + box showing) it doesn’t mean all the skill points goes to your commander, your crew still get them. When you do choose a skill for them you’ll find they start with 20-30% etc training in that skill as they’ve accumulated points already.

 

I assume that’s what you mean?

You won't hear them coming for you!

Homer beat me to it.

 

The least skilled crew member gets the accellerated crew training, so pairing a newbie commander with a good crew will do this.

Only problem is you need an elite/premium tank to do this in, and if you use an elite tank, you need to retrain the crew to that tank, or you won't perform well and there is no point in the exercise as you will boost a lower XP payout.

 

Low tier prem tanks are good for this, especially the low tier lights. They get a bigger xp multiplier.

Nah.

I would call it 'saving working force' since only one conductor would be needed instead of 2 (like they need if they are on different locations).

If you mean "raise the commander's basic skill level to 100%" (to give 10% skill bonus for the rest of the crew) is a sound idea if you are short on free XP or gold to convert XP saved on elited tanks to train the WHOLE crew.

Yes, absolutely.

 

Does it speed up the training of the rest of the crew?

No, not really.

It will increase the general performance of the tank though.

Actually trains normally have engineers, unless perhaps they are drive trains, wagon trains, mule trains, or pain trains.

 

Or Crazy Trains, which have Ozbournes

You should get a few female crew members from the Christmas special. These come with "BiA" "zero"-skill and one 'free' unspecified skill, typically used for sixth sense. Very useful, none the least because the commander often has a lot of useful skills.

 

("Zero-skill" means it doesn't count for the XP calculations - which includes that a female crew member with skills at 100%+75% will get the benefit of accelerated crew training over a 'normal' crew member with first skill at e.g. 90%. An alternative is the 'Berlin crews', supplied with certain tanks (check before you buy), which work similarly to the female crew - but without the 'free' unspecified skill.)

I suggest the skill conducting to be available for commanders. It causes music to play while tank is driving on traintracks.
