I was wondering if female crew members might come with some benefits over male crew.

I've been forgetting until recently, that I can buy a tank with no crew and put it together myself.

They start with Sisters in Arms, same thing as Brothers and Arms, and the first skill choice comes at 100%. Even though they technically start out on a third skill ... it runs off of the first tier experience requirements. They max out far quicker than a male crew.

I lay you odds that the male crew has been worked on far longer than the female crew. That's the only way they can be ahead.

No, I play both tanks equally, since they are my money maker and my first tier 8-9. Lowe for males and Emil 1/2 for females (keep in mind that each emil has its own female crew )

You do realize that the Lowe is a premium tank and premium tanks earn more crew XP than regular tanks, right?

I  just had a thought.

Can a person even recruit female crew or are they awarded and gifts?

Girls crews are a much easier grind than males crews for reasons already said earlier in this thread and are much more valuable than male crews.

They are rewards from completing missions.

For the most part rewards from Personal Missions, occasionally they hand them out as part of events and new lines.

Sisterhood of Steel no longer exists, they renamed it to BIA so they could do minimum work and make it compatible.

SoS is a "zero skill" for the girls.  This means that they have a free skill.  Starting with the first skill it's ~210k xp and then each skill doubles.  Thus skills for girls are automatically cheaper by whatever that would be.  Plus girls start with their first skill which is 210k xp.  Thus for them to get a third skill it only costs them 420k xp while for guys it would cost ~1.47m xp.

they're useful as a training tool, because they remember everything you did wrong.

 

forever.

They come with a bonus commander sub-perk if put into a gender mixed crew. 

 

Even if they're not a Commander they boss the rest of the crew around - but only the males.

Don't know how long you've been doing that, but your stats show:

Lowes 509 battles

Emil I 330 battles

Emil II 273 battles


 

Those stats really don't look like the Emils get 4X the battles.

They are much more aggressive once a month but other than that  the only difference is they come with BIA as a 0 skill which is unretrainable and enough XP for another skill that can be retained. They do not level faster than any normal crew it just seems that way because you have the free BIA.

What would you call a 'normal crew'?    Would that be what WoT puts in new tanks, that has 50% training and no skills?

 

Even if you pay to train a brand new WoT supplied crew to 100% in the tank, it comes out of the gate with no skills....  none.    Compare it to a female crew that is 100% on the tank, and is at a 2-skill level.    The WoT supplied crew already cost you to train it to the tank.   The female crew has cost you nothing so far.   But let's ignore that and look at how much it's going to cost to train each crew to it's next 'level'.     It's going to cost the same amount to train the female crew to 100% in it's 3rd skill (the next level) and to train the WoT supplied crew to it's 1st level.   Now, getting to level 2 for one and level 4 for the other will also cost the same.   And to level 3 for one and level 5 for the other, the same.    OK....   now your 'normal crew' has cost you the same amount to reach level 3 as the females cost you to get them to level 5.


 

The females will be at level 5 in the time (and cost) it will take to get the 'normal crew' to level 3.   And the crews have never been 'level'.    BTW, the female crew probably will improve even faster than the WoT crew for a simple reason.   Any crew that starts it's first battle at 100% in the tank and with 2 full skills should perform better than a crew with no skills.   The better crew is going to grind more XP for you from day one.   And that absolutely builds XP faster, that is in fewer battles.

They don't level any faster than any other crew, it's a simple fact. They just start off with 2 skills, thought I made that pretty clear. Remove those two skills ans they are exactly the same.
