Hi guys,

 

I'll just set a quick pole and hopefully if there is enough feedback and the pole heavily one sided the WG devs will take the request on board as they should any popular request if it should so turn out that way. Here is the thing, I have had buyers remorse with some tanks and more so, some nations. Not just buyers remorse actually, in some cases I lost interest in using that style of tank or else the tank became changed with a patch or noncompetitive with the result being I have some tanks I no longer player from nations I no longer have any tanks of interest in with excellent crew, female crew and would love to swap them over to another nation. As it stands, this is simply not an option, why not? Makes no sense.

 

1. I think this would keep me/others interested in playing this game and try other nations etc.

2. It would be only sensible and fair to be able to re-use crew you spend many battles in to become as good and multi-skilled as they are

3. WG will actually make a nice bit of money from this feature. Why? obvious, most if not all players that have excellent crew will not want to lose much or any skills or % both transferring crew to another nation, another tank class and another tank so will, like me, pay gold for the privilege

 

I personally would have no problem spending money to transfer some of my top crew to another nation if I only had the option, grinding crew is pretty rough at times. What do you guys think? I have probably half a dozen tanks I would love to reuse crew from and as many tanks I would love to upgrade with these same crew. Why not? It only makes sense, don't staple a crew to one nation, it's just a game, lets make it more playable. You worked hard to grind these crew or win female crew, lets get them back in tanks we actually want to use today, not paralyze them in tanks we no longer like or nations we lost favor with or game moved away from.

Yes, this'd be great. Just like the change of crew's specialisation for 500g, they could let this cost 500~1000g... i'd still trasnfer. :)

No, one big no.

 

why?

 

1) it sounds really, really stupid.

 

2) personal, selfish reasons. i spent so much time playing games and grinding crews, in SH also... and now there should be option to grind few good crews and switch them for gold.

200-1000 gold for a British gunner to be able to immediately understand Russian, or Chinese ?

 

I'm not sure it'll get the go-ahead, only the gold-rich player will be able to amass high-skilled crew members quicker.

NO! That would be big advantage to experienced players who could get multiple skill crews for new nations right from the start.

It won't happen because it takes away so much of the grinding that keeps people playing. To say nothing of how morally weird it would be to have a British crew in a German tank, or Americans manning one of the ridiculous insta-win Japanese tanks.

No the crew would reset to the new nations look, same as when you decide where you want to place a female crew. So if you transferred a British gunner to a Russian or Chinese tank, that crew will get a new look and name to match the new nation chosen.

 It's a business at the end of the day. While I would hate to see the game become pay to win or blatantly pay to win, in this case, it is paying to transfer crew, not paying for a Defender or undue bonus. The thing about crew is this, you have to grind crew and it takes a LOT of battles, it's not something you can really throw money at to improve the requirements become more and more demanding with more skills and skill %. Female crew must be won, there is no quick buy here either.

Also, there's the question of fairness, I along with other players have experience some pretty dramatic changes to tanks and tank classes that have made them noncompetitive. These are tanks we payed to have camo on, tanks we paid to transfer crew over and then WG decide to bring a patch or have an idea that make these tanks we invested money and time in redundant, is that fair? I wouldn't have thought so. To have to go all the way back to the start and grind a crew from scratch because some someone had a brainfart idea, bad enough to grind the new tanks and nations but the crew too? A bit much

Changing nation after a (gold) payment is treason!

You will be sent to gulag for such a proposal! :P

No the crew would be reset to whatever nation chosen, not remain the same. They would get new look and new name, Look tbh after 17k battles I have no interest in grinding more crew so no it doesn't keep me playing and I actually would be right now. I have a WZ-132 and new Skoda T 25 I just didn't click with so would love to stick those crew in a few Frequencies along with crew from several TDs I no longer play because the game has got away from them and I'd like to stick those in my old T-10 and that new Obj whatever it's called, but I can't and I'm not spending hundreds and thousands of battles grinding out a crew when I'm looking at several wasting away in other tanks, it's moronic and after investing that much time already, it's unappetizing, I don't have the want

So you're proposing to vaporize the current crew, saving their experience on a special device, create a synthetic crew for the new nation and implant them the experience. I can imagine a good sci-fi serial on this subject...

Oh btw I feel I may have been misinterpreted. I'm suggesting the ability to transfer crew between nations should be limited to a gold payment no not at all. I'm suggesting it can be done with credits too same as one would transfer crew from a MT to a TD sort of thing but I'd imagine that most, and this was my point, that most(like me) would chose to pay gold as not to forfeit any loss in crew skill % for the sake of a few euro, not if the crew are THAT good but other players could chose the credit route why not.

Yeah everyones Jap heavy has 100% winrate, it's idiots like you with the massive over-exagerrations that stops any actual real problems with them being addressed. They are broken as feck but hardly insta win...but I guess talking complete BS is easier than actually educating yourself on the subject.

 

Voted no on the poll, just don't like the idea, sorry.

You can change a crew members look and name any time you want to already, it's hardly much different. You're basically carrying the hours, days, weeks and months of playing this game over to a new tank. Now this is something you can already do with the same nation anyway so all talks of unfairness is laughable. I can stick a 4 skill crew into a same nation tier1 right now if I so chose. What's the difference? I have some tanks that were patched to death and I'd like to put the excellent crew to another nation rather than just transferring them to another same nation tank

Ah, so you want to keep players down? to make your advantage better? Nah I wouldn't worry about that, you can't make a racehorse out of a donkey and as you have seen, bad players buying "op tanks" still suck and players can transfer crew this way between the same nation and tank classes anyway so what wouldn't be much difference only might keep players playing since maybe some players like me couldn't really be arsed grinding out several skilled crews for days and weeks only for WG to have another "I know" idea that makes these tanks crap with a patch, not fair

These days it's easier than ever to get new good crews for new nations or lines, thanks to the prevalent distribution of female crew members all around from both PMs and Christmas specials, so I don't really feel like this would be necessary.

 

Also I wouldn't want my E 100 commanded by Anatoly Vladimirovitch, I could never trust him to truly be loyal to the Reich.. :hiding:

Voted Yes, but not sure they'd ever implement it ... without it costing an arm and a leg ...

 

Not that it matters much since I've more or less have a crew for each non-premium in garage ... quick tally puts it at 220 something individual crews :P
