There is some fun to be had in using heavily trained crews at low levels.  I just used my 5 year reward training manuals to give my Somua S35 tier III crew a boost.  They were already the female crew I picked up last Christmas, and now they are 4/5 skill.  In a very good, low level tank like the S35 that makes a difference.  

Such randoms are a bit like stealing crayons in a kindergarten, but I have broad shoulders.

lol you used all the books on a tier III?

 

The best crew I have on low tiers is the Pz 1c at 85% on the 2nd skill. Then again it's the only tech tree tank I have on low tiers, as the MS-1 has been crewless for a few years now.

Something about someone screaming in the forums about "pay to win crews" comes to mind. All kidding aside, do you actually think it makes a noticeable difference for a player of your calibre?

 

I'm only a mediocre player but, yes, at that level I think it does make a difference having e.g. BIA, Sixth Sense, Camo, Repairs, plus some equipment.  Half the opposition will be 50% crews with no skills, so you will be a few steps ahead of them.

I did toy with putting them on my tier V KV220, but that already has a 7 skill crew so the impact would have been marginal.

Haha, yeah I suspect it would. As that's more or less all my low tiers, premiums. And my SU-76i can take a 6 skilled crew from the higher tier TDs if I want to get really nasty. 220 has a 5 skilled crew at best to take.

Ectar mentioned PTW whining about crews, but that 7 skill crew on my KV220 is a Russian heavy crew that has done 5 years work in various tanks.

I've never bought any training books.

Well, you have over 5K games in Russian premiums alone. I'll take your word for it :)

Where are the KV5s of yesteryear?

This is the original crew from when I first unlocked this little gem.

Small, it may be, but it has teeth, and a decent crew makes all the difference vs tier VII
