Most of them are with me for years, and I kinda felt weird when I heard they are going away. Well, at least the commanders will live on.

Have you got any details other than the very vaguest information WG supplied some weeks ago?

 

If not then this is a pointless discussion.

As far as I understand it, there is going to be just the commander while the crew is implied.

Is there an article? I have heard nothing about this, so are you telling me that the crew I have spent gold on to get to 100% are going to disappear? For what reason?

Your crew will not disappear, nor will your progress, it will just be changed sometime this year.
It was mentioned here: https://worldoftanks.eu/en/news/general-news/2020-announcements/#crew-2.0

"Once we introduce Crew 2.0, you can convert the accumulated experience of all existing crew members and direct it to train the new ones. You’ll be able to deploy them in battle instantly, without missing a beat!"
...
"Rest assured that you won’t lose any of your progress and hard work! The whole scope of potential changes is still under active development, so stay tuned for more news."

From where are you getting this "understanding" because it isn't from any official source.

 

We have nothing but a vague piece of information which can be read in half a dozen ways.

The article says "Several commanders will form a unit that can be moved to different tanks", which could mean a tank will have several commanders.  It's all just too unknown to make any judgement on.

I am totally ok, with streamlining crew to "The Crew" instead of individual members. But they can still mess this one up a lot...

Yeah, several commanders. Not the rest of the crew.

WG please consider fixing stuff like the gun flying up in the air when by a tall structure before wasting time and effort on this needless rubbish.

The impression I got from that article was that the 'unit' would be assigned to a line of tanks and you wouldn't need to retrain a commander for different tanks in that line, a bit like the Wart Hunter crew system. But as you say, it's way to early to make any firm predictions.

 

Voted neutral on the poll, most of my crews are there because I need a crew to play a tank but I will miss my all-female E 50 crew. I worked hard back in the day to complete all the StuG IV missions so that I'd have a full crew to put in the VK 30.02 (M). This was before BiA and SoS worked together, hence needing a full crew. I've grown accustomed to them rather than attached but it'll still be a shame to see them go.

Only thing I might be worried about is how it'll affect the crew icon mods I'm running...

But as always, we'll find a way.

 

Oh, and Szarik, wonder what they'll do about him.

More information is needed and soon otherwise tbh it were better not saying anything about the idea just yet.

Our imagination is bound to lead us astray considering worst case scenarios.

How can you for instance shoot individual parts of a tank that currently kill driver gunner or commander if there is just a commander representing the entire crew.

 

From what I am reading I am thinking that a 4 man crew now of Commander Gunner Driver and Loader will change to this

Commander with a set of skills representing one type of play style and 3 other commanders each with a different set of skills.

So I have a camo commander a repair commander and so on.

I am probably completely wrong but that's my interpretation of the change.

 

IF that is the case Its going to be interesting combining those like me with an all female crew with a zero skill pick and someone who spread their female crew members out across many tanks just using them as commanders.

As I say we know just enough to be concerned yet not enough to be sure.

 

More perks and Equipment changes seem a good idea though again will have to wait more info.

Can anyone tell me what the actual point of the change is? Or is it just change for the sake of change?

To me, WG seem to major on fixing stuff that aint broke!

Afaik, the point is that half the skills/perks currently available are almost always the sub-optimal choice.

Same goes for equipment (remember, they're also planning an Equipment 2.0 for later this year).
