This 2 nation tank,...another good idea porly executed,....why?

1. After about a year there is still only one (1) tank with that possibility? There are at least a few dozens of tanks that could have that,...

2. When putting equipments in it, you have to put 2 sets of equipment in it, 3x Polish + 3x for Russki which for itself is not bad and suggest its a kinda different tank,..BUT...read on

3. When getting first win of the day x2 in Polish tank you cant play the x2 win in Russki becauxse you already achived it? This suggests its then the same tank? hm,.....DANG

it will come when WG has found a way to monetise the hell out of this mechanic. it will be a more widely available feature as soon as revenue needs another boost.

Hi!

Good:

- 2 x "0" skill crew

- decent tank for training ( but u can get a free tier 8  - T-54 mod1, or buy crew books)

- credit (tier 8 make more)

You only buying this tank for the crew.

BUT here is the BIG BUT

Next week SANDBOX: CREW 2.0 is coming.

We don't know anything, what will happen with "0" skill BIA / snowmaids / girls for mission / CC-commanders / Santas / Chucks.

I would WAIT!

At WG revenues are always short and therefore always need a boost. So, given the lack of other tanks with these mechanics there's something fishy here...

Tank is quite ok but you don't buy this for the tank. The main selling point is the 8 zero perk crew members. I will buy this tanks for the second time now to get the crews and since I already have the tank I will get the gold compensation for it which makes it even better of a deal.

I have done that many times with all the Berlin tanks, the Tiger 131, etc.  I have spent a lot of money acquiring zero-skill crews.  But in a few weeks all that money will likely be wasted when Crew 2.0 comes in.  I fear we are heading for the biggest rip-off that WG has ever staged.

Yes, but Rudy is also good. Would I buy it (again)? No. 85M is simply better and tier 8 prems and books do a better job at crew training and make more credits.

I like it.

 

It's a good training tank for both Polish and higher tier Soviet crews.

 

No it's not a better earning tank than a T8 premium, but then it's cheaper.

Is the Crew 2.0 mec in the latest sandbox ? Does anyone know how it will work ?

 

I to have a lot of time & gold invested in crews & it is a bit of a worry.

 

Though unlike many others I didn't see the equipment upgrade as a rip off, but an improvement. So fingers X.
