Great, I have a few tanks I bought at discount which need crews.

So we are encouraged to spend gold on crew and barracks slots etc so are the immense proposed crew changes still going to happen?

Free crew exp is always appreciated. At least by me.

"50% off Barracks bunks"

...

nice, buy with gold, WG will convert them to "demount kits" so you will have to buy new Crew Houses with a new name.

Crew 2.0 must be officially scrapped before I spend another penny on this game.  Selling barracks slots when you plan to replace them with something totally different must be illegal.

I feel exactly the same, WG not gonna get a cent from me as I have lost all confidence in the WoT devs.

Crew 2.0 as it stood was just a PR disaster. WG showed it's hand not only with it's desperate greed and terrible crew conversion rates but also a desire to decrease the average time of battles too with some truly broken skills.

 

Patch 9.18 with 3/5/7 MM almost broke me, then the clown cars but I stuck in there with Kisili's promises to "fix" premium ammo etc. More fool the me. 

I have a lot of premium days left, just gonna let em run down. I'll still play in the meanwhile with a sort of resigned feeling but then I'll walk away from the game.

 

Unfortunately I think WG have spent too much time, money and resources on Crew 2.0 and will force it through in it's previous guise with only some slightly more palatable changes..

Waste of money. Crew 2.0 is going to change everything anyway. Why spend anything now?

Isnt the whole point of the test server to see how things are received and work from there? Crew 2.0 was very poorly received, so it was sent back to the drawing board. Actually sounds like their system is working fine :)

  • 50% off Barracks bunks

 

Point of discussion: Should barracks bunks even exist in 2021 WoT meta?

 

When most events like twitch drops or monthly events + personal campaigns give heaps of free tank slots as rewards. + Things like black markets or rental tank codes / referral reward tanks come with their own garage slots.

You can just buy tier 2-4 tanks (including collectors ones) and use those to store your spare 100% crews if you think they will be useful in the future for some tank line you've not yet started.

You grind crews slower than tanks. I don't know many players that would prefer to have 15 crews with 1 perk each in a single nation over 5 crews with 2 perks each.

 

It's also quite dull that sometimes I can't "send crew to barracks", because they're full, so then I need to frantically go trough 50 tanks and put 2-4 random crew members in them to make some "imaginary space".

 

And if you're worried with some spam bots printing infinite 50%er crews to crash the servers then just put limitation of max 20 new recruits a day or max 6 crew members per tank in garage...

The Crew XP bonus should have been active in the Brawl 7v7 mode. If daily doubles are active in 7v7, then why not Crew XP Bonus. Running a special mode over the weekend which is incompatible with the weekend special for crew seems like an oversight. BTW, very few ppl playing Brawl last two days compared to the Team Clash. Looks like the rewards were a driving factor for Team Clash, and lack thereof in current brawl (other than 2D style and some minor stuff) is not enough of an incentive for most.

Nice special, crew xp is always welcome. I also like the changes that give us some personal boosters, nice addition and thumbs up from me for that.
