First time in a while I had some real asshattery......AT7 came up beside me and decided it would push me out of my little hide hole....been a while for me on this.

So me being the smart ass that I am and knowing that there is no way a hellcat is going to move an AT7 I just bumped into him during the entire game.

I bitch a lot about the game....and it is all just part of how the game is written...but players like this drive me crazy.

A few weeks ago had one while in my PzII....at the start I did a 90 deg turn to start moving in a way and here comes this other guy in a bt7 going about 100kph and drive right into the front of my tank...turret facing me.....I just sat there not moving....after a while he went around me and then put a round into the rear of my tank.....first and only time I TK'ed a guy because I was pissed....been shot lots by my own team...but it is usually followed by a sorry a minute or so later....this guy knows what he was doing.

Wonder if there is new blood in this game or I am just getting unlucky.

There is, and there is just ass hattery going on also.

I got on last night for a few rounds. One of the rounds last night I was playing my M41, some asshats decided platooning a tier 1 into a tier 9 battle was funny, that is what they were saying in the chat anyways. the tier 1 spawned somewhere around me because as soon as the game started he was driving around me shooting me. that ended when I finally got a round loaded 15 some odd seconds later and he was driving infront of me....

950 average damage shell on a tier 1 should leave a smoking crater for the remainder of the game!

LOLtractor did that to me in my ferdi...but he just stayed behind me....never hurt me but another guy killed him for me.

Reminds me of the guys that play Forza just to wreck other people....

The one thing that will get me to click the report button (not like I think it does anything) is just not playing the game wright.....I can take being stupid, but just playing it not right ticks me off.

Every crew member of every tank gets the same experience as the tank does in a round.

An Elite tank has the ability to click accelerated crew training which puts all crew experience into a SINGLE crew member - the lowest guy

For example:

Say you have four crew members in an Elite WZ131 (Chinese tier 7 light).

Round finishes and you got 500 xp.
Your tank gets 500 xp towards goodies and all four crew members receive 500 xp EACH.

If you had accelerated crew training clicked, the weakest member of the crew would get 2000 xp (4*500) and nobody else would get any.

So your conclusion is correct; playing with a higher level tank that earns more XP per round trains the crew much faster!

My Tier 2 tank the T18 has a crew that is working on their third perk. I accomplished this by training the crew at Tier 7 in a T25/2 and then once they had the skills I wanted I retrained them back to Tier 2. At tier 2, averaging something like 300xp per round it would have taken more than 3 times as long.

Hope this helps

Then how is it that I have had crewmembers that are not the lowest go up in percentage?

sent from my abacus.

Accelerate Crew Training
This is an option available only for Elite Tanks, i.e. fully researched or premium tanks. Selecting this option means that the tank will no longer accumulate research XP (the 5% bonus XP added to the Free Experience pool is unaffected). Instead, the crew member with the lowest total XP will receive twice the XP for the next battle that they would otherwise have received. If several crew members have equal values, the first one is chosen. The crew member who will next benefit from the bonus is indicated with the following icon left of his portrait in the garage view: .

Because the bonus only goes to a single crew member each battle, the impact to crew advancement is bigger the smaller the crew is.

Accelerate Crew Training can be toggled on and off at any time via a check box above the crew icons in the garage on the upper-left side of the garage interface, or via a check box in the upper-right corner of the vehicle's research tree menu. When a player turns Accelerate Crew Training on, a dialog box will appear to notify the player that it has now been enabled.

I'm free on Saturday, and could slot in for lobster. I'll register later today when I get home if that is useful.

I have decided I am keeping my t18 and have been trying to train up the crew. Sounds like I need to transfer them into a higher level TD and then put them back. Seems like its taking FOREVER for them to go up!


Thanks guys!

It's crazy how fast they train in higher tiers in tanks you enjoy running.
