Good on Wargaming for offering a variety of bundles including one without all the "bloat" so to speak.  Though the other packages are a good deal if you need or want those things.  Many folks don't, so the base package is good deal with the BIA crew for folks that need or want one.

 

Has the BIA crew which is a value in itself.  Base package of just the tank and a slot comes with the crew for 19.99 USD.

 

And I just checked as I got a 20 percent coupon which works.  That gets it down to 15.99 USD.   Possibly more for folks with a working 30 percent coupon.

 

Noticed this on the top two packages and haven't seen this before. 

 

The top two bundles include.

 

  • Fully trained “zero-Skill” Crew with"Brothers in Arms" Perks
    • Note: Includes 210,060 Crew XP — enough to unlock one Perk or Skill for each Crew member — when you log into the game

 

Before folks start chiming in about that, remember we already have crew books.

 

It'd be similar to bundling it with a crew book, thought we have none for that exact amount of levelling.  The 100k crew book takes a zero xp crew to about 84 first skill.  The big crew skill book takes them to 50 percent on second skill.

I could be wrong, but if memory serves right all Zero-perk BIA crews come with enough XP to train 1 extra skill to 100, it just looks like the content team started adding that fact to the bundle description.

All of that said though, 15 bucks for a Tiger 131 and BIA crew is a pretty good deal, if the Tiger 131 suits your playstyle.

Personally, I would like to see the VK 3601H at Tier V, Tiger I at Tier VI, the Tiger II at Tier VII, and the same with the Panther I & II.   Do the same with the Tiger P and so forth as it would make so much more sense.

I am fairly sure its not them all.

Right now I am looking at some of my many Tiger 131 and Cromwell B crews I am yet to train. Just zero-skill BiA and nothing more. But those were bought in stand-alone, cheapest, option. I got some with extra xp/skills (eg. BiA + 6th Sense IS-2 commander) but its just few of them.

 

Even at full 20$ it still is good deal for BiA crew, because if you buy it for nth time you get 3900gold as well (which for "any amount of gold" costs about same). And from time to time you can retrain bunch of radio operators to form full crew!

 

I can also confirm that base option has has no extra crew xp this time either.

Interestingly there seems to be no purchase limit this time, so if someone got some coupons lying around and need for some German crews...

 

If anyone still underestimates value of zero-skill crew, stop thinking about it as free first skill and consider it free last skill. Because crew xp progression is not linear...

...each skill takes more xp to complete than all earlier ones combined. Zero-skill crew shaves more than half of your crew training time regardless of how many skills you want. Having BiA from start is just cherry on top.

Great deal if you already own the tank. The BIA crew and gold is worth it.

This has not been true for any of the BIA crews that have come with the tanks I have purchased from the prem shop. They have a 0th skill BIA (which is great) and nothing else. I highly doubt this has changed. In fact, the current Tiger 131 bundles do not say 0th skill BIA which makes me concerned that it is simply a first skill/perk taken up with BIA, which can therefore be rest to another skill/perk. This differences are important and WG should really know how to specify the differences by this point.

Dude... Get those eyes checked. Make an appointment TODAY!

 

Tiger 131 ( store page for the cheapest bundle)

 BONUS 100% trained crew with the perk "Brothers in Arms"

 

and if you're just quibbling over the fact that the store doesn't specifically say "0-skill" then you're just being pedantic. I haven't checked but I don't know if it ever does. The news page does, though, so if there's a problem WG would honor that.

So get a Japanese "Heavy Tank Number 6" - and you have a proper tier 6 Tiger, with its correct 88L56 gun.  Problem solved.

Can't train a German crew that way!   If the developers find an existing SU premium tank with a different exhaust pipe they release it as a NEW premium.  :)
