Good morning Tankers,

 

Beginning on March 12 and running through March 22, we are allowing you to trade surplus blueprint fragments for items in a new in-game shop. 

 

Trade in your old and unused blueprint fragments for crew books, crew members, styles and more. Get the full details on the exchange in the article here.

Honestly, while the things we can get are nice, I'd rather just have the ability to just exchange blueprints of one nation for blueprints of another nation.  But, that is only because I still have a nation and it's tanks to research.

Players like myself, like this because I have all tanks researched.  I have thousands of unusable blueprints.  Wish instead of limits on how many you can exchange, they would have a progressive exchange rate.

Although I like the idea of being able to exchange the BPs I don't intend to (or can't) use for other items, I think it would've been nice to also allow us to exchange the National BPs for Universal BPs.

And, it has also occurred to me that some players might be in need of specific National BPs, so being able to exchange some Universal BPs for National BPs would have also been nice.

TOTAL BULL crapWHAT YOU'RE ABLE TO GET IS DETERMINED BY THE NATION BLUE PRINT, WHICH LEAVES ME SHORT BY JUST ONE OR TWO BLUE PRINTS WHAT I NEED OR WANT TO BUY IN NEARLY EVERY COUNTRY BUT US AND RU.  ONCE AGAIN WG BENDS US OVER TO [edited]US UP THE [edited],  THANKS FOR GIVING US SOMETHING THAT COULD BE POSITIVE, BUT MAKING IT POINTLESS BECAUSE IT STILL LEAVES US WITH NOT BEING ABLE TO OBTAIN IT FULLY OR GET WHAT WE NEED FROM IT.

I wanted to burn the countless of soviet and Czech blueprints I'll never use to get German crew and books but nope! We can only get said stuff of the same nation of the blueprints... They should at least let us exchange national blueprints for a speciffic nation, even if it is 1 of the desired nation in exchange of 5, for example getting some Italian blueprints in exchange of blueprints from other nations would be useful for many players since they used them recently to go through the new Italian Heavy branch, but now they do not have enough to obtain Progetto's 3D style.

That would be nice, seeing as how I have over 700 Universal prints, but only about 20-25 for most countries(except USSR and USA, where I have about 100 each).

 

Looks like I'll just get the max number of Universal manuals and Personal Training manuals, use some for USSR and USA "zero perk" crew members, and save the rest for when I start working up a few new lines as "On track" missions appear.

I just started working the Swedish MTs and TDs, and I think I want to burn some prints to get thru that "cheese wedge" Ikv 65 II before I get too discouraged.

yeah i was thinking when i first heard this that i could trade in like 8000 blueprints for crew books to make sure all crews are above 6 perks, but they added a limit, damn them for being smart lol.

It's a good way to get you to use BP's in advance of sCrew 2.0 and then all your trained crews will be worthless. They always offer something but it just isn't quite great, just satisfactory like a burger at McDonald's.

While this might be good for some, it's just another example of how these russian developers don't listen to the rest of the player base.  What most people wanted was to be able to trade between different nations, to be able to help them research a nation they are short the required # of blueprints.  Just another half assed job by the so called development team.

Why are the biatches running this game Golddiggers.. Come on just a couple weeks ago the long heralded crew changes hit the kitty litter test box and we saw how they were gonna try to screw us. Now they want to have us "exchange" the unused fragments for what could be useless crew training on useless crew members. How come the biatches couldn't figure out how to charge us gold for this privilege? Another just roll over and be a puddie cat...... Nostrovia commrades

meanwhile you're looking at screwing up the crews beyond recognition.

Very nice. The nations I have excess fragments in can only get things I have no use for. 10/10 would Wargaming again.

Not sure where you're getting this from but I'm personally very happy about being able to use my otherwise "worthless" BPs for something useful. I would have liked to be able to choose more freely of course since I have more nationals from certain nations, not to mention 1500 universals, but while it could have been even better for me I'm quite pleased

Once again, WG has a nice idea carried out badly  - why is there no button to buy multiple training books - I have hundreds/thousands of blueprints and will get carpel tunnel doing them one at a time

fine print says the bia was trained to 100%, may not be a zero skill after all.  Anyone tried it yet?
