So is it worthwhile putting Call for Vengeance on as a skill while you are trying to get the Spotting Damage for Stage 5 in the Chisel contract? Does Call for Vengeance actually work? When your tank blows up do any of the crew survive? Or is the description of CfV wrong and you always get that extra 2 seconds of spotting when your tank blows up?

Good question.  That might be a trick for helping with marking tanks too.

If you want to be one of the 47 Ronin check out our recruitment post and then send a message to Prof935 (xbox) or dimka935 (ps4).

I too would like to know how often one of the crew survives.

 

For this mission I would rather focus on playing a good spotting game, CfV might trick you into too many yolo moves.

I think the caveats are so you don't expect CfV to work after taking lots of crew damage. If you had already lost your radioman and not healed, then the final shot to your tank was the cupola I wouldn't expect it to work. The same as if you got killed by a KV-2 or one-shotted, ammo racked etc. 

 

Conversely it's pretty rare to have your game end because all your crew was killed outright even though your tank wasn't destroyed.

Yes, it is worth it.

Your crew should have (in that order): Situational Awareness, Recon, BIA, Designated Target, Call for Vengeance.

I wrote a quick guide that may help you complete stage 5. Good luck.

I've never had the skill on my crew, mainly because my first crew member who is usually deaded is the radio man - it's a bit like the guy who wears red in the original Star Trek episodes - you know he's going to die.

 

However if it's worth it, might be an idea for one of my high skill what skill next crews.

You still receive spotted damage for a short Period of time after being destroyed in battle without this perk/skill.

 

The perk/skill will increase this for the allocated time that it is activated :honoring:

I guess a corollary to my question is, has anyone EVER seen one of their tanks being destroyed without the crew also all going red? Every time one of my vehicles gets killed, ALL of the crew also dies. I've never seen it any other way. Does anyone know how it works on PC, where they have separate crew XP?

...? Dead tank = dead crew. Sometimes you can kill the crew without detonating the tank, but not the other way around. What do you mean? PC's the same.

Rarely does the crew all die before the tank does, but I have seen it. Not sure if PC was different, that's why I asked. A lot of the crew stuff is not a straight line from how it works on PC to Console. CfV skill states that you can spot(or maintain a spot) for 2 seconds after your vehicle is destroyed if the radio operator survives. But the skill seems to work even when the radio operator dies when the tank is destroyed, which is good because all of the crew dies all of the time when the vehicle goes boom.

I'm regularly driving my tier II crew trainer, it has only two crewmember, and very occasionally they both die while the tank is still running. I don't remember ever seeing it at tiers V+ though.

 

Your question is a good one though. Crew skills are the area where a lot was changed, and this might have gone missing. It's hard to test though, since as you said you can't see whether the radio operator is still alive.
