wth?  I specifically removed them from the vehicles because I knew the vehicles would be removed.

 

** Looks like they may have been retrained to the T34 and IS6 **

Oh, so did WG take back the "FL" loaner tanks last night?    I think I looked like a day ago ... and the I seemed to still have the tanks.

You may be correct.  I do have a T34 and IS6 crew in there.  I have 108 crew in there, so hard to keep track.

Hey there!

Happy to clarify; the crews were assigned to the T34 and IS-6, respectively.

Typically, event crews are automatically retrained to the Tier I vehicle of the corresponding nation. However in this case, the FL Crews are too large to fit into the tier I vehicles which have less slots for crew, so they were assigned to Tier VIII Premiums of that nation.

Either way, retraining would be necessary to put them into a Tech Tree vehicle without penalty, and retraining is not necessary to put them into a Premium vehicle.

Thanks Domo,  I assumed they would just be retrained for the T32 and T44.

It's my understanding that we can't assign crews to a tech tree vehicle that has not yet been researched, and not all players have the T32 and T44 researched yet, hence the discrepancy.

Ok... given that... Why the hell would a T-44 MEDIUM crew be changed to an IS-6 HEAVY crew? Does not compute. Is there not a Russian tier 8 premium med?

That ... actually makes sense.  Along with the mitigation for Tier 8 premiums.  Good job WG ... purely personal druthers, I would have liked the medium crew for the T-44-100, but undersand that the IS-6 would statistically be the more common vehicle.

Being statistically more common tank, all those IS-6 owner probably have an IS-6 crew.

BTW, when are they going to post the FL badges/ribbons on our profile under specials?   Only see it when in-game.   They posted the RB soon after the event was done.

Then why were crews from the Tier X tanks T110E5 and T57 Heavy just put straight into my account after a previous WOTs event ended sometime in the past (possibly 2 years ago)?:confused:

Will T34 crew be trained for T34 regular only or for T34 Black too?

Yeah, the T-54 first prototype, which is actually a really good tank.
