I really can't take these offers seriously when you include so much credits in them that it's the most valuable item in the bundle.

Isn't like getting 100k+ of free experience as well? I mean you get the tier 7 researched correct?

 

I hate grinding up to tier 7 so this is a bonus from what I see....I'd prefer the second package and put my 3 skill crew in from the pudel.

 

Seems like a good deal to me...let me know if I'm reading the free exp thing wrong cause if it's right....I hope they do a lot more of these deals. I mean I already pay by using converted xp to skip, this is a way of getting convertible xp without grinding it.

Yet more P2W greed from WG. Being able to buy XP destroys the pride I had in the great crews I've managed to carefully build up over the years.

 

Pride in my crews -- gone.

Pride in my tanks -- gone (thanks to the never-ending deluge of OP premiums)

Reasons to play this game -- gone.

I have no need or desire for the other crap in the bundles.  I don't need the gold, credits, or premium time.  How about a bundle with the 2 skill crew and a Pudel or a 2 skill crew and some crew training personal reserves?  

 

Its pretty obvious this is another money grab by Wargaming otherwise they would offer the 2 skill crew in a much lower priced bundle.

They figure these guys will spend $100 on the E25. Why not $120 on a tier 7 crew? Until you stop buying these guys crud they will keep giving us crud. We spend more than the EU server yet they got to vote on a Prem rare vehicle to buy. We get bundles.

So, WG to admits that having a highly skilled crew is a necessity. That is the problem with the current state of the crew system. At the very least, crews should be possible to train to 100% with credits, and sixth-sense should be included.

If the bundle didn't have all the filler that nobody asked for or really wants (gold, silver, x5 XP, etc.) this 'might' be a good deal.  When training my crews I really don't give a s**t about any of the crew except the commander because of sixth sense and bonus to the rest of the crew.  I know this is the wrong place in the forum but i'll share my approach for new crew training.


 

The technique that I use for building a new tanks crew costs around $3.00 in gold (500 gold) and 60K to 100K in silver and a lot of prior grinding out of crews.


 

Let's say I am looking to grind the Soviet TD line and need a new crew for the ISU-152.  What I do is look for a crewman in the barracks or on a tank that is in an 'expendable' position with a least 1 fully trained perk/skill.  In General, expendable is another word for Radioman ;)  So that is the first place that I look for a 1 perk/skilled crewmember.  Once the crewmember is identified I change his position to Commander for 500 gold and buy the rest of the crew at 75% with silver.  If I happen to have a premium of the tank type then I grind out the crew with crew and XP boosters to 100%.  That's pretty much it, it works for me.


 

WG, if you could find a way to sell ONLY Commander's for any crew or nation of MY choosing then I would not hesitate to buy them for a premium, just so I don't have to follow the process above to train a new crew anymore.

A question, just out of curiosity. How do the x5 xp for victory missions work? Do you get to decide after the battle whether or not to apply the x5 xp? Or, is it just applied to your next 30 victories, regardless of whether you want it or not?

You don't get to pick. You get a win and it's applied.

Well, I guess I'll chalk that up to one more reason not to buy this bundle.

If I could choose which victories to apply it to, then I might be interested.

And you usually have to win the X2 first before they will apply the X5 on the 2nd and subsequent wins on a tank.
