Anyone else play war stories often to train fresh sixth senseless crews?

Yes I run war stories to get some additional training on my crews. It takes longer though so I only do it when I am bored with Multi Player and have a crew that is close to finishing a skill. I am confused though, wondering why your post title has nothing to do with your actual post.

Sometimes when I'm finished work in the morning, there's less then 4K on both servers so I'll wind down with a few runs with new crews in Premiums with some boosts active, a few matches here and there and it doesn't take that to long to get SS on a crew, i even use  Elited low tier TT tanks as ad hoc trainers when I haven't a low tier Premium for that nation

Yes, if you've done them before then you have a range of tanks to get the extra X2s on that only apply for War Stories. I tend to use the Petit Tigre because most of my French premiums are still awful raw crew trainers. Either light tanks, tier 8s or the low tier arty /TD aren't fun to play with raw crews. 

 

I also thought the other day the bots had been tweaked again.

what does crew training have to do with the AI?

I too like the Petit Tigre as it is a brute with that reload speed. As for the Bots, they are getting ridiculously good. Especially at Hitting and Penetrating. They also Cheat. I was playing the Final Chapter of Brothers in Arms. I was on the ridge where the TDs are that you need to destroy overlooking the final objective. Some of the Reds there were visible and I was undetected. There was a Panther II looking away from me when I fired a shot at it. It turned around and nailed me with a blind shot. I still was not detected and it shouldn't have been able to see where my shot came from as it was not facing me but it still managed to hit me.

I think there are a couple of kinds of players going up against AI Bots in PVE.Those needing a break from MP PVP for whatever reason. 

But probably a much larger group uses War Stories and Proving Grounds for testing new tanks and training new crews where you won't be a potential burden to your team. There are other reasons that add to it - nations with a lack of good low tier premium trainers (personally for me French and Chinese). But those nations may have good tier 7-8 premiums that areI usable against bots when you have a raw crew. Or for extra x2s for tanks like the Petit Tigre or Trinity. 

 

I see the Bot AI competency as being pitted directly against raw training potential. I have always questioned that and why WG keeps buffing the Bots. I understand having a harder difficulty mode for experienced players wanting a change scene - but think the default for bots should cater to new and less experienced players. Or even raw crews, unfamiliar tanks etc.

The blind firing is a good example of how the bots have been buffed. Another is when they get a string of critical module hits against you. It's unfortunate and they do miss, but I think at some point some work has been done to make them more accurate and the unexpected result is that the bots blindfire snapshot you from outside of their viewrangev in ways that  many players would struggle to do.
