So, I unlocked Obj 260 and thinking to my self where am I gonna take a crew for it ? I have no Soviet Heavy tanks at all. Then I remembered I do own IS-6, the only Russian heavy in my possession. Naturally I went for the IS-6 crew and retrained them spending gold for Obj 260.

 :facepalm::facepalm::facepalm:

 

Thankfully no one saw that and my secret is safe.

 

Can anyone beat me with even more stupid thing they've done ?

So what is most upsetting you, that you retrained for gold or that you retrained for a premium tank that doesn't need retraining:-)

Can think of a case when I retrained about 10 crews Friday evening only to find out that next day there was a training weekend discount... which was well advertised in advance ofc

On the whole I find wot's skill accumulation and retraining system quite frustrating, to say the least...

I once sold 1,500 small repair kits instead of the few large repair kits I had collected and I also once retrained a crew to another class of tank which was fine but it was the wrong tank, at 500 gold each. Feels bad man.

I sold my M3 Light that I had received for finishing the tutorial (It was a whole 170k credits!)

Then I sold fcm36pak40 and used my only life to restore the fcm (which could be rebought for some gold).

 

This was years ago, 2013 maybe 2014.

 

I saw the M3 Light in the shop recently but I am thinking "nah, that's not my tank, my tank has been sold and needs to be restored".

 

 

Perhaps there are other episodes but this has to be one of then. Oh the joys of being a noob

I did that too back in the day. Used my one tank restoration to get it back with the old system a bit later. As I've never sold any other prem. 170K was half the world back then. And I played 3 games in it and thought it was trash vs the Luchs "that was tier 3 back in the day".

8/10, no Howie Scream.

 

 

My biggest mistake? Selling the SU-122-44 and the M55 two times. Will not sell them a third.

Probably my biggest was losing a crew.
I ended up getting support to remind me where they had gone.

This business of tanks all called WZ and Object drives me potty. I never know what I want or need. This is the reason that I still have NO IDEA WHATSOEVER what different models of Mercedes car are!

 

One of my biggest mistakes- it was only small really, but the consequence was extremely annoying.

 

I KNOW that Premium tanks do not require a specific crew, but I was going to win the T28 HTC and because of its rare crew layout I decided that I would train the female prize crew members for this TD to get the best out of it from the start. At the time I did not own- nor intended to EVER own- the tier VIII and higher US tank destroyers.

 

If you look at the female crew selection process for the T28 HTC, you can choose Commander, Driver, Loader and Gunner, so that is what I did. That's four females for the German TDs, then four more for the T28 HTC and then I trained two more for German meds. Then I found out that the T28 HTC has two loaders.

 

I won the T28 HTC in May 2016. It was TEN months before I completed one set of campaign missions for the T-55a and was able to get that last female and finally take the T28 HTC out. So far, in 17 months, I have played eight battles. LOL :harp:

When I first started playing, I didn't know that you can upgrade the tanks. So I played some games in a stock LOL tractor, wondering how everyone else was much faster than me (the tank had a horrible stock engine back then).

 

Eventually I moved the crew for the Pz 2, and at some point I realized I had picked some useless skills for them, so I fired the guys and got new 75% ones. Didn't know you could retrain them.

I might be wasting gold as a currency, but spamming it like there is no tomorrow in randoms take some dedication and I would not be a true Dinger. After all you guys have to maintain your reputation, I don't want to bring you down.

I also decided to go for T95 so I used my free xp to go to a tier 7 and unlocked T25/2, then I realized that this line is leading to T30.
