11 for free, this sound nice. Nice ideea because to bost crew to more than 4 skill it takes huge ammount of xp.

If aim rng can have some explanation why penetration rng exists? Gun powder from some shells is made in Germany  (+25 %) and other shells (-25 %) are made with bad gun powder?  Who stolen the gun powder from -25 % rng penetration shells?

How about the crew skills to reduce rng from 25% to 15% ?

Since WG started boosting progress to reach tier 10s faster , now its time to race to reach 7th/8h crew skill :teethhappy:

 

I will profit from this , because out of 199 tanks in my garage , 50% of them doesn't have its dedicated crew.

850k exp to buy for credits, available multiple times? So it means that I could have 7 or 8 perks without playing single battle, just need to buy Fort Knox or two? I was stupid to play 1k battles in one tank to have 5-6 perks crew.

I guess this fixes one hole to complete p2w boost your account without having to play. Can't wait for the bundle sales.

This is really, really nice, good job WG :great:

 

New players will now be able to set up a decent crew without having to play hundreds of battles before they can have a crew that is atleast comparable to crew members of veteran players. Specifically, they will atleast be able to get the most important crew skills such as 6th sense, Brother in Arms, etc. And while this is very beneficial for new players, veteran players that wish to purchase a new tank but don't have a crew for it will benefit aswell.

 

One question though WG:

 

You mentioned that you planned to make 6th sense default game feature instead of a crew skill and that you even might redesign all the crew skills. How is that work going? Will it come quite soon or far in the future? Is it still planned or is it cancelled? Reason I'm asking is so that players don't invest a lot into these crew books, and then the entire crew system gets redesigned and for example 6th sense is no longer a crew skill, etc.

This should be quite expensive in order to not ruin the game or reward for some events.

There si also some unbalances in game: in frontline Emil 1, cost 12 prestige points, 12 prestige points = 1200 bonds, Tier IX tank costs 15 prestige points = 1500 bonds. If You try to sell one improoved equipment that was 5000 bonds you get 500000 silver.

The thing is that the difference between 0 skills and 3 skills is much higher than the difference between 5 skills and 8 skills. So this feature is mainly beneficial for new crew members. It will help new players that get sealclubbed with their 75% crews and 0 crew skills, while also allowing veteran players to skip the painful 6th sense grind on new tanks that they've purchased.

With the changes to lowtier HP I would say those are amazing new steps towards helping new players. I am glad to see. Yes some people whine about "hurrdurr my 6 skill crew will be useless as I grinded that stuff while others can just get it easily hurr durr. can't statsped anymore in Minimaus, Pz I C etc"

 

But comeone... Let the Game die so you can still have some fun clubbing newbies? A friend of mine left because he didn't saw a skillgap, but rather a "WhoHasABetterCrew"Gap

If I read the article correctly, you can pick and choose which crew member to apply it to yourself...

Be interesting to see how it works in practice.

Problem with other crew boosts is the doubling of XP at each new skill

Its not too bad getting a grew to 100%

Getting a first skill to 100% is pretty expensive and the closer you get to 100% the more it costs.

I certainly couldn't boost a multi skill crew and that's probably a good thing.

Nice, I don't do crew grinding so this could give me a bit more 1-2, maybe even 3 skill crews!

I like, great idea. It will really help new players and players starting new lines with crew the most which is never a bad thing and from WG point of view it will tease players into trying new nations they have not yet tried which will translate into a player potentially spending money at some point on that new nation tech tree journey. Because 3 of the 4 options are nation limited and because they can be collect with merit drops, eventually a player will gather so many for a nation he has never played before he will be teased into doing so by having enough crew boosters to start that line with a really decent crew. Great potential here.
