Howdy (again) Tankers,

 

In case you haven't purchased any Large Boxes or you have and haven't gotten Simon Claus, I just want you to know that he is THE BEST specialized Commander that we've ever received here in World of Tanks.  He comes with:

 

1) 0-Skill BIA

2) 100% 6th Sense

3) 100% Your Choice

4) Then you select one to start grinding.

 

That's 3 full skills right off the bat which is really sweet!

 

FYI - He's a Commander ONLY, so no retraining.

 

My only question is: Can you get more than one? 

 

I'd buy boxes just to get more of these bad boys. (not Naughty List bad boys though)

FYI - I moved my M4 Sherman crew up to the Jumbo but have been playing the M4 with a new crew with 0 skills (no 6th Sense).  My first game with Simon Claus at the helm:

Congrats! Yeah He rocks. I bought the Tier 9 French HT skipping that T8 from all the Gold and booty received from my purchase of a big box. Him and the four female crew members really set that AMX up. Merry Christmas....

I am hoping to get him, with Him and the 4 Females, you would have an instant high skill crew for a tank line you are grinding.

I don't know if the 2nd Skill (6th Sense) is a 0-Skill.  If it is, then I REALLY WANT MORE of these Clauses!!

So he doesn't sound like Santa, Satan or anything else? Just a normal Commander? Is the nation picked as well?

No, he sounds like whatever the regular voice is for the nation you choose.  He can go to any nation.

Yes, my one question is, can you get more than 1? I would buy more boxes if there was a decent chance. I would love to hear from anyone who has received 2 or more.

 

Btw, he seems to be 0-skill to me. Oddly, it appears that you cannot re-set either the BIA or the 6th. You can only reset the third skill.

 

In my garage, the BIA is grayed out and indicates it cannot be reset, the 6th is not grayed out, BUT if you click the reset button, it only shows you get 1x100 skill, which I presume means the 3rd skill.

 

I would love for someone who knows, but this seems to be a  "double" zero skill, either on purpose or accident. The XP required to go from 0% to 1% of the next skill is 200 xp. According to http://www.planetwot.com/Crewxp/, this is the amount needed on the 2nd skill. But I am technically starting the 4th skill, which would mean that BOTH of the first 2 skills are built in.

 

This would be a huge development, and indeed the (first?) best of any crew member in the game. It would also be the start of a ton of confusion with crew references. "0-skill", "double 0-skill" etc. If WG goes this route more often to make this type of crew common, we really need a mod that will distinguish between them better.

 

Edited to add screenshot showing the grayed out BIA, the Reset value of 1x100 skill and the XP requirement of only 200 xp to go to 1% of current skill.

I bought $240 worth of boxes and only received 1 Simon Claus. 

 

My $40 box set last night was my worst haul yet.  However, it was totally worth it to me because I finally got the Leafblower!  Fricking love those boxes.  Sooo addicted.

I suspect that the mechanism which seems to be in place to prevent players from getting more than one tier X special skin (IS-7, Grille, etc.) is also in place to prevent more than one Santa Claus from being won. Still would like to hear from anyone who has won more than 1.

What's his voice like? I got him but haven't had a chance to hear him yet.

I'd totally love it if he chortled "Ho ho ho" when you hit someone. Or "We lost all our presents!" When you get ammo racked...

I could only wish! 

 

Or if you were in an Oho and it said that, it would be super funny.

I received ALL 4 Tier X skins with my first 75 Box Set purchase.  Plus the Skorp G, Defender, IS-3A, E25, M4 Imp, Turan & KV-220-2.  Plus a Claus commander, a bunch of gold and credits and premium time.

Santa's voice in an American tank is the same male (young) voice you always hear.  There's no special voice with Santa or the Holiday Ladies. :(

When I said "more than one skin" I meant "more than one of each type", so up to 4 individual skins.

 

I know the tanks can be won multiple times (with gold compensation), but did you ever receive any of the skins more than once, or any type of compensation for duplicate skins?
