Sorry, none of that disproves my point.  The fact that they are talking about how the commander's skills work does not imply that there will be no other crew.  "Crew configurations" strongly implies the opposite.  


It was an affirmation of what you said. Typical poster goes negative first.

I've never heard of this rework but I have 20 tanks in my main account all the crews are 5 plus skills and some of them are maxed out .I'm not retraining anyone with out  some kind of gold compensation.I used real money and time to build those crews over 24,000 battles this sounds like a complete waste of time.

I have a hunch that some of what is driving Crew 2.0 is the fact that the wheelies and other new LTs have so few crew members.

 

Fewer crew means those vehicles take so much linger to train multiple skills.

This is what is makes it an unknown as to how it will work. I know there was talk about going to a commander only system like in WoW, but this part of the announcement is pretty ambiguous:

 

 All crew unit members will have a common progression, so interacting with them will be more convenient than with individual tankers.

 

In the same sentence they imply that there will still be a full crew, but they also say it will be easier than dealing with "individual crew members"

I’m only passingly familiar with it.  But yes there’s a kind of skill tree.  But I’ve seen no details so it’s pure speculation on my part.

 

My biggest concern is not knowing what the best meta build will be.  That will take time to learn after it’s released.  With lots of crews people could easily build them wrong and have a huge headache later. 

From the descriptions i have seen it sounds alot more like WoT consoles commander system rather than WoWs captain system. In that system only the commander had skills but you still had crewmen who could be knocked out and that could affect tank performance. the commander also had something like 20+ skills so training took longer though you would get the first few perks quickly.

If they do ANYTHING WHATSOEVER to my crews they better compensate me handsomely.

 

If not there is going to be some [edited]

All they needto do is add more skills and rework o es that no one uses so that there us more choices that matter.

 

Hell they have like 3 radio perks but radio mechanic is useless in the game. How about making that actually matter or remove it completely. Its there just make you grind something.

Hopefully this is just a trial balloon and the russians freak out (like the proposed 430U nerf) and WG decides to drop the issue.

I honestly don’t want them to change it. It works fine they way it is now, anything they change it to is going to be worse for the player.

My Chinese crew is currently working on their final skill. The commander has 10, and the others 8 or 9. That's a tremendous amount of time invested.

having unique crew members is something I actually enjoy and definitely adds something to the game.  The skills definitely need a rework, but keep da boys!!!

Sounds like Crew 2.0 could be a major S.N.A.F.U..  Having more new maps on a regular basis is what I would prefer.

Could this be the future?

Is this why they keep claiming this is a "thinking person's game," since the rules and procedures are always changing?  "For the better?"  :facepalm:

I see a storm coming. A lot  (read a LOT) of gold (cash money) has been spent on crew transfers, training, re-training, etc...


 8 years training for me but it's still only a game of free pixels.

 

That's why I don't care.

 

The gold I have spent in here is a lot less per week than 1 night in the pub with my mates. Therefore the cost for the fun I have had becomes irrelevant.

 

WOTs is a free game and no one forced me nor you to use GOLD so why should we be refunded? Oh it would be a lovely gesture but that ain't going to happen. Dream on.

Perhaps this may encourage some to get of the basement and finally feel the fresh air on their faces. :facepalm:
