Crew skills/perks can be confusing..
Personally, I think it is a big factor how well your vehicle perform in battle, even before all the perks were introduced.

I remember when the perks first came out and the crew skills got to reset for free, I couldn't decide which were priority for my crews to have, I think 6th sense was one of those I thought must haves, but it turned out not as useful as I liked it to be... since the lightbulb only comes on 2-3 seconds after you've been detected.

Bros. in arms is one of those perks that is invaluable once you have a few basic skills (repair, camo & firefighting) already in place; +5% with more basic skills that your crews have; if your crew do not have any basic skills trained, there is no need for Bros. in arms.

Personally, I consider Recon, Dead eye, Clutch braking, Situaltional awareness, Safe stowage as the first round of eccential perks for any vehicle tank crews.

After those, I would move on to Mentor, Snapshot, Off-raod driving, Relaying and loader usually start out with basic skill of camo or repair depending on vehicle; since Safe stowage usually take care of the fire issues, so firefighting skill can be op'ed out for later.

Everytime the crew skill reset special comes out, I take full advantage of it and reset all if not most of my crews. It take good amount of credit or gold, but results are worth more than the gold consumables.

More than likely, by the time 2 perks at 100% on your crew, skill reset special should come around once and you could reset the commander's full perks for 6th sense (or Eagle eye) and Recon, then whatever I have left goes back to Mentor, since it is not an all or nothing perk.

Anyone run a Matilda? Is it as bad as a Churchill? I tried the RAM II and the Valentine and I was disappointed in both. I want to have just one premium tank to help offset the cost of running my tier 8 Medium, but I want a Tier 5ish or lower. That's why I'm kind of looking forward to the Black Prince. So far all the premium tanks have been slow and under gunned, except for the type 59. I shoulda jumped on that when I had the chance.

My ping is due to where I am. I barely have DSL. If I ever get below 100ms I'm lucky. But I don't have problems until it goes over 225ms. And that's low for my fps I normally run around 70fps

I will likely buy the Matilda to round out my British collection. Personally I like the Churchill and the Val. I will walk away from a good church match with over 20k, and a bad one with around 13-15k or so. I always make around 10k in the tank even on a crap battle.

Churchill is still my prime money-maker, though my E8 does well on a good day too.

I'm trying to get to the IS-7, then I'll run the US medium line followed by the Russian medium line, before deciding how else to proceed.

Just got into the WoWP beta, so I'll be spending some time there too. Downloading now.



Game on.
