I don't think I'd have killed him without the fast reload speed.

And it's nice rebuying something because all the extra parts are still in the depot

just put the crew from the IS-3 in there for now not retraining them or anything
How does the game handle that? Do they gain exp?

Patrol Duty bonus seems to be legit. I had 2,500 XP to go before my crew was 100%...

Well, my win rate is going in totally the wrong direction and there's not a damn thing I can do about it.....my final battle of the evening...7 kills, 2700 damage in a loss....the whole team only got 9 kills. I can't carry an entire team by myself. I was thinking about renewing my premium the next time 1 year goes on special. Now, I think I won't waste the money. This game has become too overrun with noobs at all tiers that have no clue.

I'm confused. Do I not get more than one Patrol Duty a day? I have 14 enemies on my list and 10 were damage I detected. No Patrol Duty.

I'm not sure. I doubt it because it says their skills/perks cant be used.

Perhaps training them at 80% is a good idea so the skills and perks come into play, but I still use my IS3 so thats not gonna happen

It's rarely done, but one ends up with a 100% crew who is at the level a newly trained (via Silver) crew would be at (if in the same class of tank, etc.).

The problem with doing it in a powerhouse like the KV-1S is that any competent tank company will see right away that a player isn't as fast as other KV-1S's, so then you know something is up with that player. In a good to great TC they'd get kicked.

For pub matches it may not matter much since everyone is so bad at tanks these days anyway.

One of the guys here in FYYFF does this with 2 of his tanks, I don't remember who it is, but he seemed to think that they still gained xp, unknown if they truely do.

I do this when I have a free slot for seal clubbing, I take my T25/2 crew and put them in a T18, boy they can really screw some tanks up, and their perks still seem to work, atleast 6th sense lights up.
