100% crews cost gold, is that what you are planning or are you meaning a 75% crew which costs silver?

Assuming the 80% crew has no perks, I would be leaning towards getting a new crew. even if you are looking at getting a 75% crew at tier 5, I would go new then too.

I looked into it at one point and it looked like if your crew is below 84% then retraining with silver nets a lower precentage than buying a new crew with silver.

So what I'm saying is that the T71 is very, very good.
Yes, they are. This was my 28th game in a T71, and the first one where it was fully upgraded.



Holy spotting, Batman!

I've been thinking about getting a T71. Now I am fairly certain that will be my next tank goal.

Cool thanks...I just bought a Luchs just for that...wonder if I could buy two I have the space.

Also not sure I get the Cromwell, is that for the 3.7inch howizter? I never even bothered to research that.....but if it is an easy way to make money, I may just give it a chance.

I have been thinking about that as well, but as I understand things the t21 is about the same as the t20 and I hated every moment with that.

I am also thinking about giving the french heavy line a go....the armor seems real thin on the high tiers....I always seem to single them out....but they do shoot fast, it would be fun to try.

I've heard that from a lot of people. I think my play style is different though. I am a light tank and arty guy. I adore my T20 money maker and playing a heavy bores me. Been killed by plenty of French heavies though. I've been thinking of the French Arty line too -- those top teir buggers sure can scoot around the battlefield quickly.

Sorry i idnt say that right. Its a 100% with 80% perk at tier 3 and the new crew will be gold. I guess the question should be do U train PERKS faster at lower levels or at higher

I think Higher levels train perks faster, but the lower levels do not see the handicapping that the higher levels do with a new crew...

That is assuming of course that you want to keep running your low tier tank and not sell it.

Thanks, so far it is going well. so far I have not had a squeeky teen voice in my ear once, and had to do a doubble take last night because I thought I heard Chris talking in the teamspeak...

Yes the Cromwell, and also the howitzer is available on the Cruiser II as well. I assume that is the reason for the price bump - the ammo was balanced at the wrong tier.

I absolutely disagree. The look the same, but they play completely different. The T21 plays just like the Chaffee.
