If I read the article correctly, it said that the new commander XP in crew 2.0 will be an average of all member's XP of a certain vehicle. Ex. If I have a tank with 4 members at 100000, 200000, 300000, and 400000 XP respectively, I would get a commander with 250000 XP in the new system. But I was thinking you could kind of cheat this system by dismissing all crew members except your most experienced member just before the update, using the above example if I dismiss the 100k, 200k, and 300k XP members, I should end up with a 400k XP commmander with the new system. Thats essentially a "free" 150k XP if I'm right about this. Just thought I'd share so that people can test this out and verify/dismiss it.

That appears to be the case indeed. I don’t know if the game would let you convert a crew that is not full though, otherwise yours is a fine idea.

You need a complete crew to convert into a new crew.  This wouldn't work.

Aren't the spare crew members turned into Instructors though? I haven't really read about how it actually converts everything.

Only campaign girls, 0 skill crews and other special commanders are converted to instructors.

Special crew members (Santa, Chuck, Snow Maidens, Prime commanders, etc.) get turned into instructors.

Spare crew members are turned into reservists, which can be used to fill vacancies left by the special crew members or empty slots when converting tank crews to the new system

Unused reservists will be turned into crew books after 300 days

The calculation was something along the lines of total exp/number of crew members slots, so this wouldn't work.

^^^^ This.

I've tried it already on the Sandbox. You have to have a full crew "trained for THAT tank" in order to convert them over to the new system.

Ok, thanks for the feedback then. Thought I'd throw this out there to see if it works on Sandbox, seems like it doesn't.
