Customizations just so happens to be the thing I spend most gold on.

 

Here's once again hoping that more historical camouflages will be added in the future.

I'm most of all hoping for the M90 pattern for Swedish tanks and its older variants.

Objective - Win a battle.

 

Well you see here's the problem with that. It's a team based game so winning isn't really something I can influence a great deal more than 60% so that means almost half the battles I will play are not going to get any bonus X3 crew xp. Can you not just make "per battle" instead next time?

Also, that was a bit of a tease with the Christmas jumpers for tanks, I actually would like a Christmas jumper for my tank lol.

Doesn't feel very "Festive" in the game at the moment. Any news on the Christmas Garage and events??

From where do you have that crew? They look like some gentlemen from the 1910s.

I think it was from that special game mode that I didn't bother to play. I remember low tier tanks and a game that crashed every now and then. Got the crew though.

I can't even remember for anything like that. It is not important, just the regular faces are boring and it would be fun to see more fellow classic beard/moustache guys in tanks.

I got those crew from a WW1 commemorative anniversary WG had a while back. Sadly I have not seen them before or since then but perhaps they will feature again in a future anniversary. 

 

I think they're a great theme for a crew and along with the style of British accent used during battles, feels like my tank is crewed by the characters of Black Adder goes forth lol.

 

"Nice shot! We didn't pen him and he is currently unharmed and aiming at us with a rather large gun but nice shot none the less old boy!"

 

Ok the game voices don't say that but they bloody well should!!

Pointless "special". So not only you have to win and be in the top ten you also have to have got the first victory of the day in the tank before as well.

What is wrong with making this x3 crew xp every battle so long as you finish in the top ten?

Better off just playing premium tanks and buying crew books. A much more time efficient way to get crew training.
