Hmm interesting.  If I spend 4200 gold on it in game, I get a BiA crew, a garage slot, and 3900 gold back.  That's not bad, 300 gold for a garage slot and 5 man BiA crew.  I can see a few of those getting sold.

 

And today's mission is 5k damage (over any number of battles as long as you are in the top 10 players).

 

[edit] apparently no crew.  So 300 gold for a garage slot.

[edit again] Bug fixed.  Get your cheap BiA crew.

Sounds like too good of a deal. Do it and tell if it worked.

Well that's what it was telling me on screen I would get.  I don't have 4200 gold right now though, or any use for another German crew or a garage slot.

I'll have to look at it again.

 

It definitely said I would get a BiA crew "in my barracks".

I bought the is2m ingame. As opposed to the regular shop it was only bundled with crew and garage slot. No gold etc

Looks like I bought a free garage slot for 300 gold, no crew showed up in my barracks.

In-game store

 This bundle will provide you with a Tier VI German Premium heavy tank, a Garage slot, and a fully-manned crew with the Brothers in Arms perk (added to the Barracks)

 When you look at the bundle content it shows a Tiger 131 and a Garage slot. (Mouseover the tank and you get its stats and over the garage slot it will tell you that its "An additional free slot in the Garage"

That's the same with this but you won't have had the IS-2M in your garage already.

 

Looks like they got tired of people spending money on tanks they already have just to get the crews.  Wonder if it works if you buy it through the premium shop.

The premium shop works, I bought the Day 3: Tiger 131 and got everything listed. Also got compensated 3900 gold for already owning the Tiger 131.

Question - If I don't have this Tiger 131 and I buy it with GOLD do I receive it + crew with BIA or I will receive tank without a crew with BIA ?

2500 gold bundle + 2500 gold (value of 30 days premium) + 300 gold garage + 3900 gold compensation = 9200 gold.

If you would buy Any amount of gold for money that Tiger 131 bundle cost you could buy 7200 gold (aprox.).

 

If you already have Tiger 131 and need gold than Premium Shop is quite good deal. For that money you get more than if you would just buy gold and you get free German BIA HT crew.

Or if you have Tiger 131 and want to buy 3 or more months premium time, you get free BIA crew and for all gold you get from bundle + compensation for already owning Tiger 131 you buy premium time (+30 days you get in bundle).

I'm smelling an inept WG misprint. I tried as it said BIA crew in your barracks but got nothing more than a garage slot that cost 300g.

It will be interesting to know if anyone else has tried buying the Tiger 131 in-game and whether they get the crew.

I bought the Lorraine 40t yesterday in-game and didn't get all the camo I should have done - support are investigating.

I suspect the in-game packages are missing some items.

Maybe check you Tiger 131? The game might have put the crew in the tank if it was empty.
