So yesterday I noticed something rather odd: I have two full 100% crews sitting in my barracks that shouldn't be there!

 

One is for the tier X Chinese heavy tank, the WZ-111 5A, and the other is for the tier x Soviet medium, the Object 140.

 

I don't have these tanks, nor have I ever had them- in fact, I haven't even unlocked them through the tech tree!

 

I don't know exactly when they appeared, but it must have been in the last couple of weeks or so.

 

Now I recently took advantage of the 5 battle rental on a 50TP Prototype, and that left its crew behind (rather kindly I thought) when the rental was up- so is it a bug connected to that?

 

I've also been using the vehicle recovery tool quite a bit lately- might that be responsible?

 

Were they a reward for something? (albeit quite an odd one).

 

Or did WG try to give me those two tanks for being an all round good guy and discovered I didn't have any free garage slots so I only got the crews? (I'm thinking this is probably a long shot)

 

Any ideas, or has anyone else had this happen? I'm not complaining; I'm sure I can retrain them to be of use. I'm just curious as to where they've come from.

Its from the Brawl test mode; all players were given a WZ5A and Obj140 as rental with 100% crews that we get to keep afterwards.

Rental tanks that you didn't use?

Makes sense, I was idly wondering why my barracks suddenly became full, but I paid no close attention because it's a horrible mess anyway.

Now I know :)

I will have to remove those crew members now.

They try to bank on the feeling that you may not want to remove 100% crews and expand your barracks instead...quite a clever mental trick.

Every 3 months or so I do a cleanup of my barracks (and my depot btw) since plenty of specials give rentals tanks with crews I dont need / want

9 out 10 times when you don't know where a crew came from. It's usually from an event you cared little for to notice. As most of those crews get converted to a different tank after the event. As the brawl tanks had a "BB" in their name after it iirc.
