I wonder...is it better than the female crew?:confused:
He comes with 2 perks already at 100% and one ready to go, does that means  he will train faster than the ladies or is he just the same?

Probably only his BiA is a zero-perk, so it's the same as any other zero-BiA crew member. But, idk for sure since i haven't recruited him yet.

My best guesses would be Japanese or Italian, considering the Italian Heavies mentioned and the Japanese TDs basically confirmed via Blitz. However, I already have a second Italian medium crew I'd retrain anyway, and I think I have a Japanese medium crew as well. Besides that I'd just end up stacking up on crews for nations I'm not really too interested in. .-.

I have a few of them but i tend to save them and recruit them as commanders
On the is-7 and Swe TD i have a full female crew since i got them when they were still locked to their specialization rather than being able to choose (and the SWE crew were...well just SWe back to the old event) so...

No idea if he trains faster, but if he does my Luchs will be happy.

 

Tbh I don't really care anymore about using a crewmember in the 100% most efficient way or if it's only the 73% most efficient way, my WoT OCD is withering away...I'm getting more and more casual as time passes, and the frustration seems to be less and less.

Crew skills are less useful than a good map reading. Once you have 6th sense, camo or repair depending of the tank role its ok. And even those can be dealt with : without 6th sense be more careful and its done.

What do u mean basically confirmed via Blitz? They got jap tds there? Not that I care for those, but Italian heavies that would be interesting

I'm not sure, but the 4th skill I selected did go up fast. I guess the first and second are both 'zero'

First two skills are 0-skill, so he will train up fast. Planning to put mine in the T100LT.

Beware - he can only be a Commander - I was crewing my Sherman and had already selected one of the females as Commander - but couldn't set the Santa one as anything else - so now I have effectively ruined my 2019 female crew!

I dumped Santa as a commander for T-54 which I plan to buy soon. Do have the Obj 430 with good crew but just unlocked the 430U using some blueprints and sent all the girls to play OP tonk, So far 100% winrate in 430U :trollface:

 

Did plan to buy back the T44 to grind the T-54 but had shitloads of blueprints so just unlocked the T-54 right away, but have to spend some time training the crew (with Santa) in my good ol' t-34-85M before getting the T-54 (just reached 2d skill on all the crew members...).

I am distressed to hear this

It does not seem very woke

I noticed that QuickyBaby recommended using these special crew members in LT's, which often have only 2 or 3 crew members.  Thus to have a good set of skills/perks, Santa and his girls are pretty valuable.   :girl:
