Hello everyone :)


As Wargaming gifted us with four female crew members in its latest holiday special, I was wondering: How do I use them most efficiently?
Shall I put them in a 4-slot-premium and have one powerful crew really quick? Or better have 4 tanks (I intend to keep) with one female commander each?

 

What are your thoughts on this?

 

Merry Christmas everyone! :) Have a good time!

i've done a mixture of the two, used the girls from the campaign to throw together an instantly good Type 64 crew (it's my only Chinese light tank :P) and the other ones i had plus the ones from the Advent stuff to create insta-sixth-sense commanders in vehicles that were sorely missing it.

Id say put full female crew in your favorite tryhard tanks, and just use them for commanders for everything else, so im gonna make the vote 50/50

I think the best use is the commanders on tanks you unlocked but have no skilled commander to put on. The difference of having 6th sense from the get go or playing the tank "blind" is massive. If you don't have new tanks to crew up or have enough spare commanders anyway then go for a dream team crew for the tanks you play the most.

Commanders and drivers. If you're really short on viable crews commanders only is probably the way to go but I want to highlight that the driver's mobility perks are extremely underrated which ensures that a driver has tons of useful perks. Gunner, Loader and Radio Operator run out of useful ones after a few and are not worth investing on.

 

It also makes more sense to put female crew members into tanks that can utilize the camo skill, therefore putting girls into heavies is mostly a waste while mediums, lights and TDs gain the most value.

Well timed thread i was just going to ask the same question, is there any extra benefit of having an all sisters in arms crew or is it exactly the same as brothers in arms ?

It's the same and work with brothers in arms too. The benefit of female crew members is that they get their skill for free and you would be getting it at one point anyway, making it far easier to reach higher number of skills overall.

Mixture. I kept my All-girl US light tank crew, because it's well trained. However, since they changed the SoS/BiA mechanic, I've been using new girls only as commanders. Until this Christmas. I didn't have need of commanders all that much and I just got the Type59, so now that one has an all-girl crew.

Depends on the type of tanks you play. If you need crew for LTs or med autoloaders it's better to go for full female crew. This is because they gain experience faster and you need good crews for these types of tanks. If you play heavies, grind multiple lines and dont have commanders with 6th sense go for the 2nd option.

Also think about tech trees that don't have "berlin" crews, if there are tanks on those nations that you like then use your girls there

Crew perfection until they nerfed the ELC.

Used to assign only commanders. But so many female crew lately that this time around I will make a full female crew in the ISU-152 (with one left unassigned from missions). I'm thinking to keep my SU-152 and now I don't need to start a new crew from 75% primary...

Why would you disagree? Don't you see how happy they look with their StuG IV?

They do indeed look happy, but I bet that's all makeup, they are suffering underneath for sure!
