Hello fellow tankers.

With two 0-Skill crews on sale right now (Thunderbolt and Tiger 131) I felt it was an appropriate time to remind everybody the value that these crews have.

At the same time I'm also launching my new site! let me know what you think :3

https://www.13disciple.stream/0-skill-crews.html

If you have suggestions for improving this guide, or content for future guides, feel free to leave a comment here. I'm thinking my next guide will be comparing crew retraining options.

Great page ! Crew is just another very confusing concept for new people. I don't think Wargaming appreciates how freaking confusing this game can be. I remember playing with 50% crews and bumping a few commanders to 100%- thinking that was great.  Reality is a 100% crew is still a very poor crew but the very term "100%" leads one to believe that they are top performers.

I enjoy German heavies, kept them all except the tier five, and have bought the Tiger 131 five times for the crews and gold.

Thanks for adding my site to your well of collected information.

I would like to mention I did read your post there

Block Quote

 The only thing better than a 100% BIA crew is a female crew-member
They get 2 free skills, so the 3rd skill only needs the ammt for XP that a 1st skill normally requires.

 

Just wanted mention that this is half correct. a female crew does have a 0-skill BiA, however their second skill is 100% trained - but not at a value of 0. Females will obtain perks/skills equally as fast as a 0-skill male, they just start with more XP is all. Gotta love female crew members :B

I know I've bought it at least 3 times.
Does this article make me a wargaming shill yet?

I should mention that I had to figure all this out the hard way, so most likely that's not the only almost-correct factoid.

How do you tell who are the 0-skill BIA crews after you retrain them for other tanks, aside from the females?

 

I have 128 Russian crews members and I want to identify the ones with 0-skill.  I bought the Berlin Quartet twice.   Once when it was on sale for the gold and the crews which was a very good deal. 

 

EDIT:  I see that when you reset some crews the BIA does not count as in it is a 4 perk crew but it will only let you reset 3 of them.  Is this how you tell they are a 0-skill BIA because you can't reset the BIA?

Why is it that on some crews the BIA skill is GREYED OUT when at 100%?  Are these the 0-skill crews? 

 

This is not the case for females, though. 

 

Well, some of my females are GREYED OUT while some aren't.  It is about 75/25.  I have 4 girls on the 430 who are not greyed out.

I believe it's grayed out when not every crew member in the tank has BiA as a skill. To make BiA work every crew member in the tank is required to have this skill trained to 100%. If any crew member is missing it or is less than 100% then the skill does not come into effect and likely that is why it is grayed out.

Yes, clicking reset and seeing I can only reset 3 skills on 4 skill crew or something similar is how I can tell if they are a 0-skill crew member.
