I do like the luxury of a fully trained crew, however, Instead of using my premium tanks as trainers, I use them as specialized [edited]whoopers for when times get tough or the MM and RNG just isn't in my favor. I've been grinding my tanks and specializing the crews I have with skills and perks that benefit the tank's playstyle. For example, I have my Kaiju OI trained for Offroad Driving, Repairs, BIA, and other complementary skills. I'm leaving the original crews in as it makes playing already good tanks even more fun. I primarily use my Prem tanks for fun anyway. I don't swap crews that much. I haven't been playing as much due to the extreme grinding and earn op blowout. What do you guys do with your Premium tanks?

Sold the latest one for funds and needed garage space. Something I won and didn't like.

Rest of them are earning silver and training.

The only Premium tanks I have dedicated crews for are the ones that came with specially named crews. It just felt wrong for me to move them out of their home tanks.

I hope to one day be wealthy enough to be considered eccentric rather than just plain nuts.

My tier V and under premium tanks are my crew trainers. They get no skill crews. I'll get SS, maybe BiA, and over train them for another tank.
My Tier VI and VII premium tanks are my for fun tanks. I don't care about silver in them and will use more APCR and premium gas or cola.
My tier VIII premiums are mostly silver earners. But I do have a Black T34 and a T25 Vengeance that also serve as trainers. Only they get crews with at least 3 or 4 skills.

I mainly use my premiums for silver earning and crew training. I always transfer crews in new tanks into the premium to get through the 75% to 100% faster...

I only play premium tanks for the most part so I have some super crews that swap back and forth between tanks I feel like playing.  I have one American crew working on 13th skils, and two more working on their their 6th skill.  I have a Russian crew at 9 skills and Brit crew at 5skills from the snakebite release.  My German crew I've had since the rampanzer was first released is my pride and joy at nearly 15skills.   I don't swap them into tech tree tanks for the most part because I prefer my premium tanks.  So I suppose you could say I'm always grinding my premiums.  Lol.

Generally only have one crew per TT tank I'm grinding, which then goes through all the premium tanks I have for X2's & silver.

Sometimes I will start a new crew, if I find a tank that I want to keep.

Have a crew for both Russian heavy lines, one for TD's & one for medium line..... Medium at 9 skills, best heavy at 12 & TD at 5.


I now grind through line, using just one crew & don't sell tank I like..... Then build up crew later for it, if & when I get to Tier IX

Cheers MB
