I have 5 crew members waiting to be recruited (4 female and the Simon Claus). Is there a deadline past which they will just disappear? I read the ingame notification about how I "need to claim my rewards before the 1.4.0.0 update. I did the discounts but when it comes to the crew I wanted to save them for when i'll be able to recruit them for my B. C. 25t AP since i'm grinding B. C. 12t right now and want to go both medium and light tank lines. Since i don't have it yet and probably won't till 1.4 hits i can't recruit my crew with that specific tank specialization.

 

Will they just disappear when 1.4 gets implemented?

 

The one thing i can do to save them is recruit them for AMX CDC or Lorr 40t since it seems that you can always recruit crew for a premium tank even if you don't have it. Then i could just retrain them for 800 gold once i get my B.C 25t AP.

No deadline as far as I know - you will find them sitting in the recruits section of your barracks, waiting patiently until you assign them to a particular nationality etc. :girl:

No deadline.

 

Mine are still there on the 1.4 test server.

If you haven't recruited them from the rewards screen where you got the discounts from, they're gone.

 

If you did what you suggested in your last paragraph, ie recruit for something else then retrain, then Mr B is spot on, as ever.

Sorry to disagree Mr Dits, but I don't think that's the case. I haven't yet recruited any of mine (ie not assigned them to a nation, vehicle or major qualification) but they are patiently waiting in my barracks until I decide where to place them. When I log on, within the notifications window I get 2 messages, one telling me that I have unallocated tank discounts and advising me to allocate them before update 1.4, and the other advising that I have unrecruited crew members in barracks, with no warning regarding time limits. I take this to mean that there is a deadline on tank discounts but not on crew.

Puzzled by this initially, as I was prompted to update yesterday morning, which I foolishly assumed was the 1.4 update.

Turns out, had i been smart enough to check, that the update was 1.3.0.1 and not 1.4.

 

Apologies for the mistake, and thanks Mr B for your tact and gentleness in educating the hard of thinking :)

Thank you Mr D - Mrs B approves, but expresses the wish that something of that would spill over into domestic life!  :)

I was worried since when i searched the forums from last years holiday ops they apparently weren't available in barracks and there was a time limit. Thanks for the answers.

 

I also did some digging and found this https://www.youtube....h?v=WcELzHIW4H4 . At 2:00 it says "[...]there's no time limit to recruiting them (the crew)[...]" if anyone seeing this thread needs some concrete evidence :)

 

The ingame notification must be about the discounts only then

You are still wrong.

 

The recruits will still be there, in the recruits section of the barracks, after 1.4 arrives.

 

There is no deadline for recruiting them.

Ok, but what about discounts chosen for buying tanks, are they permanent like last year? I have same message: "You have some unused rewards. Do not forget to activate them before the release of Update 1.4!" What is the purpose of it?

That's just a glitch.  If you have allocated the discounts then there is no time limit to using them.
