EDIT: they patched it and fixed it. We can move on to the next pitchfork-worthy event now, guys.

 

 

 

...or at least, not in the traditional sense.

 

Normally when you recruit a female crew member it has a zero-skill BiA, then the first perk is 100% ready to be selected, then you can also select your 2nd perk ready to start being trained. 

 

 

The way the reward crew member is set up, you get a crew member that has BiA trained as a first perk (not a zero-skill) and no additional skills ready, but it also has a female crew portrait.

 

 

Why would WG do this in such a non-standard way? If it's a female crew member why not give it the crew skills that other females get? If it's going to be a standard crew member without a zero-skill BiA, why give it a female portrait?

 

 

 

Someone please help me understand. How has WG taken something cool like this reward and seemingly messed it up?

So your saying it has ZERO perks trained? Or it at least has BIA trained?

You have got to be kidding me. First no gold for left over tokens and now they just plaster a Female portrait on a regular BIA crewmember? I really think that WG goes out of its way to anger it's players just for the fun of it.

As I understand it (I'm at work so can't verify myself), the BiA is trained as a first perk. It's not a zero-skill.

Shouldn't you confirm prior to making a forum post about it? I don't think anyone can even accept the crew member, so your friend probably lied to you. If this is true, it's almost certainly a bug. Can everyone calm down until we know for sure?

I just got mine.. I do wish it was a free perk.. I'd much rather had Sixth Sense as a commander perk.. That does kind of suck for what I was hoping for..  But I guess atleast it has at least one perk right.. I mean I did nothing to earn it.. It will be nice when i start a whole new crew I can put him somewhere like gunner or something I guess instead of commander.

If what you are saying is true they can keep their "free" female crew member. I am not going to ruin a female crew "set" by putting some weird frankencrewmember in it.

It's hilarious how WG manages to find new and interesting ways to screw the pooch :child:

The thing is, the whole reason so many of us put in so much work for these personal missions was to GET the really good female crew members.  They are seriously the best crew you can get in the game.  Worth spending hours and hours of your time to earn them.  For WG to say that they are giving you one, and then turn around and give you something that, in comparison, sucks, is a good way to totally piss off the player base.  Remember when they basically did the same thing with the Czech line when it came out?  You had to grind a bunch of missions to get the "free" female crew members.  Only to find out that they were nowhere near as good as the ones you earned with the regular personal missions.  Everybody was ticked off about it.  The same thing is going to happen here.  If the new crew member is just a crappy BIA crew member, without the "zero" skill, she is actually worse than getting a plain old 100% crew member with nothing.  Because it will take you significantly longer to get her trained in her "first" skill on top of that BIA.

This is just another scam by WG to make people use gold to convert the BIA to something else. I was going to add this female crew to my IS4 crew and retrain all of them to put in my IS7 but WG can forget that. WG just saved me 800 gold.

I figured there would be some people with that "don't complain about free stuff" attitude, but in this instance if someone says they'll give you a Ferrari and then you end up getting a Toyota with a horse painted on the side it's a little disappointing. Sure it's still a free car but you were promised something way sweeter, so it's a bit of a let-down.

I don't see how anyone can be sure that this isn't the standard female crew member with BIA + 1 skill/perk ready to begin a third - not since the error prevents recruitment.

What could nip this in the bud would be someone from WG piping in and telling us this is not the case. But beings though WG doesn't do that kind of thing I am going to go out on a limb and say the speculation is correct. It wreaks of something WG would do.
