...couldn't they have had the Buffon commander unassigned so you could assign him to any tank you wanted. At least make it the P26/40 since that's the first tank you have to at least have to do the missions.

Why? It's perfectly fine. You'd have to spend gold/credits to train him anyways. Usually for WG they go with the easy route of just throwing him in a tank. If they assigned it to a tank you just have people like you complain they want him for a different tank.

It's about the gold.

One dollar in gold x how many players moving him into their favorite tank,then moving him again and again.

I know this and I still want to get him.

The perk is worth it.

No because they want people to use up their gold to move him around, and then pay cash to replace the gold they used.

 

Think like a business, not like a human with regards to microtransactions in free to play games.

You obviously missed the point. They could have left him unassigned so you didn't have to spend an extra 200 gold to put him in a tank you can use him in since nobody is going to put him in the tier 1 tank. And if not that at least assign him to the tank that you have to have at a minimum to get him, at least that way you could use him in the premium, if you have it, without spending gold. It's the small simple thing like this that are far more irritating since they are so easy to avoid.

I picked up mine yesterday after running nothing but the tier 4 and tier 5 tanks with noob crews during the last few days.  And after doing that, I now have 2 commanders partly into their first skill and I've got Buffon for a tech tree that really only needs one crew.  Guess I'll credit train Buffon as the new commander of the tier 5 and sit that other commander down.  Doesn't seem to make much sense to have done this other than to have a unique commander.  Guess at some point while the 1st crew goes up the tree, I'll have the 2nd crew park at tier 6 so they can become a Stronghold crew.

You don't have to spend gold to transfer crew at all. You just have to play a few more battles to get him back to 100%. Irritating is insisting gold needs to be used at all in this game.

You answered your own question like others have said.  "so you didn't have to spend an extra 200 gold to put him in a tank you can use him".

 

They WANT you to spend that gold.

You could also reassign him for credits and just grind up the xp again.  It wouldn't take long to get from 80% to 100%.

Exactly.  They have the UI built already to assign special crew to nations/tanks.  Looks like yet another little money grab.

support the concept that all crew training should be converted to a token system. 

players can purchase tokens at any time, then use them to train/reset/reclass a crew member. 

then, any time WG gives crew away, they would come with 1 token.

He sucks.

0 Skill 6th Sense, but no second skill at 100%

Trained for the Tier 1 Light Tank, so spend gold or grind for a bunch of games because the MTs are a different class (80% retrain with silver)

I used a female crew member for my Italian Commander, so GiGi is nearly worthless.  I'll probably keep the tier 6 for a while, I guess I'll put him there

 

The 40k XP was the main reason to complete the missions.  I have the tier 7 Unlocked and the gun and turret upgraded after winning 1 game in it.
