Had a fight a while back and I took an arty round next to the tank. What! My whole crew is dead?
I sat looking at my tank with near full HP and a dead crew! Hum, I guess anything can happen in
WOT!

Yep, those zero crits actually do something

Now if only they would get it done faster when I'm trying to help take down a Lowe in my easy 8...

The first time that happened to me, was in my T-28, I got shot by a Churchill, and I died, though my tank was still intact, then I saw the status of my tank and my entire crew was dead. It's a very rare thing to happen, but I seem to kill people's crew more often when I'm playing in a TD.

True story! I was in a tier 2 tank (can't remember which one) then a MS-1 came around the corner I was thinking "easy kill" then he shoots me once and kills all three of my crew members. Normally I would freak out about that but I couldnt stop laughing on how messed up that was.

Another thing. Normally if I see a enemy tank that has a dead crew but the tank is still alive I usually just finish off the tank, dunno why though. Anyone else do that?

This stuff happens more often in lower tiers since they only have about 2-4 men in a tank.

Only time I've ever had that happen was in an MS-1, but I once saw it happen to a T32.

You can't use the med kit when everyone is dead. I always have one but there is no one to use it if no one survives. Besides: That happened in WWII a lot that is how you capture a tank.

Worst i've had was 4 out of 6 crewmen die, but i've read someplace that if all your crewmen are killed your tank automaticly becomes knocked out.

Well how can your tank run if there's no people to operate it? it's a different situation if a crewmember is "killed" because he's got allies to "heal" him. How can you heal if everyone else is dead?

Have the dead gunner fall out of the hatch, with his boot-strings snagging the catch on the medkit, spilling it open and dumping on the loader who springs back to life.

That's pretty much how it happens. Your tank is not blown up but its just dead to everyone on the field. When it happened to me in my JagdPzIV I was rather suprised that the other team drove right by it and never shot it up even when it was not blown up like most destroyed tanks.

Does killing an entire crew counts as a kill? Or  should you also destroy the tank?

Good question!  I wonder...if your tank was the last tank left "intact", but had a dead crew, would the enemy have to kill your vehicle in order to get the "All enemies destroyed" win?  Assuming they did not just cap the base.

I think it counts as a kill
