Quick q: Once I get my tank crew all to 100%, I've read somewhere that I can just dismount the crew and move them to another tank, even higher tier tank and they retain their 100% status...is that true? Do you always buy a new crew with a new tank or do you keep the same crew once its 100%?

The first 5000 included the elite tank (with garage slot) and $2000 gold that you can use on an existing account. They ran out of the 5000 and now all they are giving is $2000 gold for new accounts. I missed out on it too but was able to get $2000 gold for my son.

I've been thinking of getting back into this. Used to play it about July or so last year and the matchmaking is what drove me off. Is it better now?

The TigerP was fun, completely ignoring me standing behind him. Started to rotate its turret on, like, my 5th shell.

Depends on your definition of "better".

Some aspects yes, other aspects it's same as always. Pretty much unless you are platooned with or are using scout or arty you won't see more than 2 tiers above you. So once you hit Tier 7 now is where everyone complains it seems.

I would have a hard time imo telling you it's better, especially if MM drove you away before. I actually preferred the way MM was a long time ago that gave a wider spread.

The only way to overcome MM is by having Grabad and Carbonward like skills it seems. I honestly have no idea how so many of the unicums overcome and can carry full teams of fail so often.



Also nice match there mosi. thumb.gif Sold my 13-90 as I was tired of having to hang with Tier 10's and 9's, looks like MM did good for ya there.

You still have to retrain your crew when taking from tank to tank. Your skills and perks are what stay even when switching. And once you get some crew with skills or perks yes imo and many others you are better off transferring them and retraining to keep building them.

To aid in giving crew experience you can use them with Premium tanks. Premium tanks of the same nation and same class(Heavy, Med, light, TD,arty) can use a crew at 100% no effect or retraining needed. However if the crew is trained for that premium tank you can't do it reverse so when moving them you still have to retrain.

I don't buy crews anymore as I have plenty floating around and will just use them. Of course when new nations like the Brits came etc you have no choice, but outside of that I use old experienced crews from tank to tank. Hope some of that makes sense.

Actually the MM sort of works as it always did. They restricted things to 5xSPG although everyone was asking for 3x per team but oh what the hell.

I don't mind going against T9-10 on maps where I can either scout properly or do some hit'n'run around corners. There's this fuzzy feeling when you hide in your bush at the front line seeing all those red guys blowing up left and right. biggrin.gif

I've never played before but I have to say I have been enjoying it. I'm still at tier III looking to break into tier IV with either a T50,T28 or Covenanter. Been having the most fun with the Lights but would like to eventually go try a heavy so I may do the T28 for the KV1 route. The Luchs has been great, too. Don't have a premium account or any gold at the moment.

Iceblade, since they added "Physics" in 8.0 it makes the game so much more enjoyable, mm is much worse here on the SEA server but the game is still heaps of fun. T-50 is a blast to play with physics, drifting around higher tanks while shooting tongue.gif

Thanks smile.gif. Like, I'd play in my T-34 and be stuck in matches with tier 8 tanks which I can do nothing against. About the only tank that consistently gave good MM was the Churchill which obviously was premium. I don't really see the point when you're being put in matches like, 4/5 tiers above you. That and the grinding eventually got to me.

Try as I might, I can't seem to get the hang of that tank. Too fast...

Ah well. It sounds pretty similar to how it was - will have to wait and see. Just don't want to do a 4 gig download, and then play 2 matches and then uninstall lol. Thanks for the answers though smile.gif.

Thanks -

The MM works ok until Tier 9/10 (sometimes 8) where they "fixed" a bug allowing 6 big arties per team, it's now 5 which is still far too high. It might be worth your while checking out the MM Chart before you decide on which tanks to play.http://forum.worldoftanks.eu/index.php?/topic/185210-updated-mm-chart-for-82/
