I like a few of the portraits and bought 10 loot boxes I believe. Afterwards it left me with an unsatisfied feeling.

 

I mainly recieved the portraits from Nations I don't play. 

 

My own mistake I know, but being able to select the commander you want for a flat fee would have been better. Or if the loot box mechanic is the only way to work in into the game, we should have gotten a Halloween crew voucher, which would allow you to pick the commander you actually want. 

 

Don't get me wrong here. I actually like way WG implements the loot boxes because I always get more gold in total than I have when I would have bought the gold directly from the store. Part of it has to do with the fact the I have quite a few premium tanks, but nonetheless I have fun opening them.

 

The Halloween boxes not so much  and I feel a bit of buyers regret.

 

Am I making a big fuss about it? No it was only $15.00 in the end....but it is a bit of a downer.....

I asked RaiBOT01 to pass onto the devs that I'd be willing to use crew vouchers to change crew images so I could change a zombie to a werewolf. She said she would pass it on, so I'll keep my fingers crossed. I also asked for nation specific bundles next time. Just have to see what happens and hope for the best.

I would like this. It’s not like the different monster crews have any special abilities or voices to cause problems, it’s just a picture swap. 

 

Being able to pick the nationality for them or at least what nationality box you buy would be a nice thing as well, as then you wouldn’t be stuck with crews for nations you don’t need or want. Unless they want you to have them to try and get you to then get tanks from those lines.

Definitely on the nationality.  Who needs 5 Polish crews?  But the one guy that wants a polish crew probably ends up with 5 Russians.

Was curious, is there something special about these crews or are they just monster pictures?

Welcome to the forums. Where you can call people stupid, just don't call them passive-aggressive.

I bought x4 of these, in it I got two Zombies (plus two others) but can only find one Zombie in the crews list. So maybe I got a duplicate, though I didn't see any compensation at the time.

 

Then the added faff of trying to scroll though all my crews to find the buggers, not knowing what nation they were. When I found one (I think I was using my LTTB to search russian crews) and clicked, usually you get a screen requesting Mastery or Regimental level payment. Nope, it assigned it straight away, which is nice if I knew it was going to do that and I wanted it in my LTTB. Now I'll have to crew train the usual way to relocate this crew.

 

Nice Idea, implementation lacks user information and it highlights how poor the UI is at crew management.

 

Still can't find that other Zombie, hiding in the cellar maybe?

Monster Pictures + have some skills trained already, depending on which on you get.

Can you put forward an idea to just sell some of the monster crews individually (outside of lootboxes) I would like to buy a few of them but most of the nations would be useless to me.

I'd buy a bundle of the legendary crews from the smaller nations - China, Czech, France, Italy, Japan and Poland.
Germany has 3 legendary crews and Russia 2 - they could be sold as a bundle.
UK and USA each have 2 - they could be another bundle.

 

Honestly, I wouldn't bother buying anything less than legendary crews now that I have plenty of the lesser ones.

If WG are going for a top trumps/ baseball cards thing then they're unlikely to want to let people choose (at least not during this initial sale).

The obvious difference with those collectible cards though was trading, I think WG are missing a trick in not allowing players to swap unused monster crews with other players. Maybe this would reduce repeat or bulk sales from individuals but would probably temp more people to buy a few

 

I realise that this would require a new market platform and would probably be too much dev work for one promotion but it could open the door to other inter account trading possibilities in the future.

And I don't want monster crews. I just want to turn off the annoying noises in the out door garage slots (that we mostly pay for) that we are FORCED to have.

I got two US Vampiress with BiA skill,  A German Zombie officer with 6th sense and other German Zombie with 6h sense and BiA.  Skill are good, crews go into Techtree tanks without transfer costs.  I'm only disappointed that those crews don't have any special voices in then.

I’m just happy I got Cthulhu as a crew. He can operate an entire tank just with his face! :D
