I'm a little aggravated that the Gigi Buffon crew member you can get during the Soccer Mode is better then the one we could get during the Italian Tech Tree missions. Sixth Sense versus BIA and Sixth Sense.

 

  • Remember the Italian tech tree missions you could get Gigi as a "fully trained “zero-Skill” Commander with Sixth Sense perk".
  • Now in Soccer mode you can get Gigi with "Brothers in Arms and Sixth Sense perks".

 

Getting good crews for the Italian line was so lackluster, especially compared to the Swedish missions where they were practically giving girl crew members away.

 

Grrrr.

Doesn't mean the original Buffon is suddenly terrible.

Sounds like a win and then a WIN, to me ...

Buffon can be in WoT because Italy failed to qualify for this years World Cup. 

 

Its a a pity such a great player ended his career on a bad note.

I think it's dumb they are giving him away twice, one for only in the Italian line, and the other for anywhere. They should call one Jr or Sr. or something. Even the KV-2 got an R and the Cromwell has a B.

So you're mad that they are giving away an even better crew member? Slow day on things to complain about?

They didn't use the words "zero skill".  So there are several possibilities here:

 

1) Gigi has zero-skill perks for two perks.  That would be really nice, but I don't see this being the case.  Way too generous for WG.

2) Gigi is a zero-skill BiA and the 6th sense perk is trained to full, or vice-versa.  In this case he is the same as the one you already have except you didn't have to spend a casual afternoon grinding the first perk.  Big deal.

3) Gigi is not a zero-skill crew and instead the two perks have already been trained to 100% but the next one will still go as slow as any 3rd skill.

 

In any case, none of these are worth the amount of effort and RNG you'll have to deal with to get them.  The way the cards work sounds a lot like making our Christmas collections last year.  And just like Christmas, you can go to the shop and buy cards too for anywhere between $10 and $80 (at least with Christmas you got gold and a chance at prizes no matter what package you bought - with Soccer mode the additional items really aren't that great).

 

I'll just play the soccer mode for fun.  Forget the rewards.

You can't for the current one, so I don't see why you could for this one.

Are the crewmen unique?  If you can only have on Gigi Buffon in your barracks then yeah, this is a problem.  But I'm pretty sure you can get them both.
(Isn't that how it worked with the other named crewmen, e.g., Sabaton, Fury, Thunderbolt VII, Losa?)

 

Yeah, they're being more stingy with Italian crews than they were with the Swedes.  Not sure why they were  so generous with the Swedes, TBH.  It was uncharacteristic of them.
