For a newbie it's better than the VK, and gets you a good starter crew for German heavies.  Train them some skills in the Tiger then retrain them to the tech tree heavies when you start playing them.

I just bought it right now with ingame gold, i didnt have the tank. I got a 50% crew in the tank, and another one trained for it with BIA perk in the barracks. Hopefully it is as i know, the BIA skill doesnt count as 1st skill. The next one you train will grow as it is 1st.

Hey guys, 

 

We are aware of the issue with the BiA crew and working on a fix. No need to contact support at this point as it is a known issue and should be fixed for everyone affected. 

 

Sorry about the inconvenience, we will keep you updated.

 

 

Hello Ph3lan,

 

I have 3 questions for you

 

1. Is this fixed?

2. What is/was the intention of that offer? Can we purchase the package multiple times with these rothers in arms perk?

3. Do we have to create a ticket when we were affected from the bug in the morning and didn't got our crews? I ordered 2 packages while I have the Tiger 131 in my garage,but still don't see any crews.

 

Thanks.

Thank you @eekeeboo but just tried it. 

It worked for me.

 

I already own the Tiger 131, I bought the Tiger 131 in-game for gold. 

 

The cost was 4200 and I was reimbursed 3900.

It cost me 300 and I got an additional garage slot and BIA crew.

Thank you WG.

Ark'

Quick update guys! The Tiger and Lorraine bundles should now be fixed. 

 

For those buying now: You will be accredited correctly. 

For those who have already bought them: You will have them credited soon (no definite time frame, but they're on the way). 

 

131 crew will go to the barracks, so please check their attendance!

I bought it three times and only got one crew. Is this supposed to be correct? If so, I would like to return the two later purchases.

I bought the tank for gold twice just now.  The first time I got a new BIA crew delivered into my barracks with a receipt message popping up.  The second time I did not get a a crew or a receipt message.  Two purchases, one crew.  I'd buy the tank a few more times if I knew that the crews would show up once WG fix things.    I already have about six Tiger 131 crews deployed among my German tanks.

 

I hope we get a definitive answer on whether we can obtain multiple BIA crews this way before the ISU-122S comes round.  I need more super-soldiers for my Ulf Squad.

They say the crew will appear in your barracks, so if you have a crew already, put them in the tank first.

Maybe they have 'fixed' it so you can only be rewarded with one crew in the barracks?

They may have also set it so that it will only ever reward one crew - which would make sense.

Interesting. I have the tank, and think I should pay 4000 gold for the bundle, which from the garage looks like a garage slot and maybe the crew. I'm guessing it actually is the rest of the bundle contents, but that's not something I'd like to figure out - especially considering that WG borked the contents of the pack already.

 

Bit of a rushed applications of getting bundles both for cash and gold, methinks.
