Hello everyone!So the christmas tree ends tomorrow and I was wondering do I have to recruit the female crew today and pick the tanks I want for the discount?

This is what they said on the matter

Discounts can be used for absolutely any researchable vehicle of the specified tier (crates provide discounts for a specific tier each) and aren’t limited in time. Once you pick a tank you’ll be buying with it, it’s valid until you purchase it. Grab it right away or in a year—you’re still getting that sweet amount off the price. The time for picking a tank expires mid-March, though. So don’t put it off for too long! The same applies to your new Crew members: make sure to recruit them before mid-March 2018. We’ll share the exact date later, so stay tuned.

Correction seems it must be done before the next patch goes live.

It should not, but this is Wargaming we are talking about, so you might want to be on the safe side.

Tho NA has changed their news regarding this to Feb 6th. So basically it's safe to assume you need to do this before the next patch either way. Tank discounts can be picked for any tank. Even if you don't have it unlocked, so no need to wait until you have XP etc. But as for the crews, just go for the nation etc and train them up for that new tank later etc. As when the next patch comes, they will be gone either way. As the compensation female reward we got last time went away if you did not claim her when the new patch came. So just makes sure you do it before 9.22 either way.

That is likely why they would make you pick before then.... Rumours seem to be Poland and Italy (and not necessarily together), but just based on discussions on these forums....

We have no idea when they will arrive. As in Italy and Poland. Could be 6 months from now, could be in 2019. Either way the female crew rewards will most likely go away if you don't claim them before a next patch anyway. So if they did add new nations in 9.22. You would still be to late to use it.

It was 100 times better if we could train these female crew in any tank not only the tanks you own and it seems you can train your crew into evry prem tank even if you dont own that tank... Doesn't make sense at all oh well.... I only have a few new tanks coz of the discounts they gave us, even the ones i just unlocked but dont want to play atm. They were free or very cheap so its not a big loss. Right now i dont have a choice and put my last female crew into the Tiger P since i want to unlock some (or all) tanks with it.

Picked Pz IV H as Tier 5 and VK 30.01P as Tier 6 for purchase discounts. This for time I finally decide to grind German super-heavies (Pz7 and Maus).

Discount on Tier 7-10 I already used for Chinese HT line. 

 

Recruited 4 female members for T-44 as I will use them for new Russian T10 MT (Obj430U) once it come. Than I will also buy T-44 as I CBA to pre-grind XP for T9.

Played few games with them in Rudy and T34-85M just so they remember them.

 

Sharded all decorations in hope to get final Lv5 Chinese decoration (1 I was missing) and cammo. Of course I didn't get it.

 

Overall, I used all benefits of this Christmas already and personally I think it was overall awesome event.

Due to atmosphere booster quite easy grinded both Chinese T10 HT which is awesome.

You can recruit a crewmember (whether a reward girl or an ordinary man) for any tank that you have researched - you don't need to own the tank. Premium tanks are simply considered researched.

Sure? The client specifically says "discount for a researched tank". The button does open a list of all tanks of given tier, but I didn't dare click anything without thinking it through.

I can confirm this is true. You can apply the discount to any tank you have researched or plan to research or you decide to buy back. I applied the Tier 10 discount to the M48 Patton, and only 1 week after that I researched it. Same for the Tier 9, which I applied to the AMX 13 90 since the beggining of the Holiday OPS and only researched it last week.

Actually, thanks for the information :great:

Even knowing WG it's equally possible it's simply to avoid issues like they had on Halloween. :P

Screenshot the Holiday Ops page. It distinctly states (as posted above):

 

Discounts can be used for absolutely any researchable vehicle of the specified tier (crates provide discounts for a specific tier each) and aren’t limited in time. Once you pick a tank you’ll be buying with it, it’s valid until you purchase it. Grab it right away or in a year—you’re still getting that sweet amount off the price. The time for picking a tank expires mid-March, though. So don’t put it off for too long! The same applies to your new Crew members: make sure to recruit them before mid-March 2018. We’ll share the exact date later, so stay tuned

 

So, maybe 10 March, maybe 20 March. IN NO WAY can this be construed as February. There will be chaos & uproar if WG were to end it before March.

I'll be waiting for my 4 female crew (that I have right to) as compensation +1 extra if WG decides do mess things up.

So, how do you choose which tanks to apply discount to and how do you recruit those female crew members now that UI has reverted back to standard?

It's badly worded.

 

What it means is any researchable tank.  i.e. not premium/special/reward/event/whatever-other-term-they-come-up-with
