I think sony didn't add it to yesterday's eu update. This may not be the fault of the guys / girls / cats here. You really need the christmas crew..... a little patience and you can spend your money on them :coin:

Not the first time it got forgotten. I dont like it if parts of the community get the short end of the stick because WGCB (since US Store has the loot boxes already) messes things up. Its nice to promote special crews on one hand while denying it to parts of the customers.

lol! you finally gave them unique voice overs? At least the cat from the vids that's awesome honestly. Any chance we can go back and give the monster crews their own voices???

 

BTW; some of these folks look like they'd be more at home with the monster crews

Yeah no; I can confirm that. Bought a few and tried out the JP ghost looking lady and she just spouts off the USA female voiceover. So kind of a wasted opportunity. I really should have learned from last time because I bought the 10 pack and ended up with like 5 of them being duplicates of each other:sceptic:

This should be posted in General Discussion.

As it is, we'll never get to see all the different crews actually available, because I'm sure the general population frequents the General Discussion not  Developer Bulletin sub category.

Last Halloween it wasn't very popular, and only with a few days left was a picture posted with all crews.

could we at least have a list of them like before with their corresponding nation?

thx

Took long enough to be honest.

Interesting they put St. Nicholas in it who has been a person in real-life, is also a saint from a major religion (Nikolaus of Myra) - unlike Santa Claus who is based off him.

The high pitched elf voices are funny.

The cat voice is unique and cute, yet it can get so annoying sometimes.

The reindeer voices are creepy and sound like a programmer did all the voices. Remember Sven from Frozen? Sounds nothing like him.

Interestingly they put in two Ebenezer Scrooge variants.

A missed opportunity is to have Santa's other reindeer as crew members, like a reindeer for every nation. Unnamed reindeer for Czechoslovakia though.

I like that most of the crews have more reasonable skills/perks (Rudolph and Yule Cat got BIA, Sixth Sense and Repairs).

 

Personally, the Future Ghost looks the best - it is more creepy looking than most of the Halloween crews.

 

In 101 Chests I had the T26E5 AND Rudolph.

 

While I am not through all new crews I got to check if there are more new voices, this is something I wished for the Halloween crews and upcoming crews: to have a bigger variety of voices. It worked with Jan Kos&Szarik, the Edelweiss and Namless crew, and with Wojtek, and now it seems its a little step in the water to check how deep it can be. More unique voices and crews are the way to go. I mean to me the price for 30 loot boxes looks reasonable if you look for crews.

I purchased 30 chests... 3 perk crews: 1 ded moroz, 1 pere noel, and 1 rudolph (T26E5). Got the tank on the 9th chest. Has anyone claimed the M60?

Just some gee whiz feedback for the Holiday Themed crews to pass up to the bosses.  While many of us really enjoy the holiday themed crews for our tanks and would love to get them, I have to ask one question.  What incentive do we really have to get a new crew that we will have to grind out to be good?  Getting these is great for brand new players, especially if you snag one with two or three skills on it already.  Plus, you get to stick it into a tech tree tank for free, which you can't beat that.  However, most of us already have alot of crews that we've spent months training up to where they are now with 14 or 15 skills.  Instead of making these a WarChest type of thing, why not make them as a special type of Holiday Crew Voucher, where we can unlock a holiday themed Crew in the Crew Portrait Section?  The Holiday Portraits would only be obtainable with a Holiday Crew Voucher.  I love the idea of the special looking holiday crew portraits and all, but when you're already invested in a whole bunch of crews you've already trained up, it just ends up seeming like a waste.  If we were able to purchase the special crew portraits somehow for existing crews, that would actually be something.  I don't know how you'd work that with the current system in place, though, except maybe as an aforementioned type of Special Holiday Crew Voucher.  

 

I ended up having all these identical crews left over from the Halloween Chests and they serve no purpose now.  I want to just dismiss them to get them out of the way, but since they have 1, 2, or 3 skills on them, I also don't want to just toss all that out the window.  Know what I mean?  If we could just purchase the holiday crew pictures for existing crews we have, this wouldn't even be an issue.  That alone, right there, is why I won't be purchasing any of the Xmas themed crew warchests, even though I would love to get my hands on some of the holiday crew portraits.  

 

Just something to think about when implementing these in the future.  I honestly believe more people would be willing to purchase these if they were generic "Holiday Crew Vouchers" instead of getting a random Holiday Crew that we may not even want or need.

 

 

Same here, so nice to see at least a few nice new mugshots after most of the crappy stock merc crews, but i allready never upgraided the Valkyria crews and i allready used up all decent crewpics from the nations basic selections when they where updated to gals. allready passed on helloween chests because of this broken goods. would be so much better to be able to pick for what You paid.

i think ppl would pay even more IF THEY CLEARLY KNEW what they WILL get. not a funny bag with crews from nations you never wanted to grind. I got the Valkyria crews but never grew fond of them (they may be accurate) but the guy was just boring and the high pitched gal neither enthusiatic nor suited for the Hvy Tank she came with. Also i couldnt sticker them on my senior skilled crews so theyre doomed to be rookies for life.

WGA should put the same effort into all unique crews, give them decent pics and voices, maybe even a UNIQUE not overpowered skill and You can sell even better than premium tanks. dont even need to make a repaint autoloader Maus to get some gold.

Thank you!  It looks like I missed 3 of them. :(  Toy Soldier, Befana and Święty Mikołaj.  Too bad.

 

Also, the US Elf looked different in game than in the graphic you posted.  It looked like the Italian Elf but with the US flag.

real FUGAR, i had some doubles and even triples. thankfully no quads...

 

2 Drummer Boy

2 Gryla

2 Mari Lwyd

3 Elf (German)

3 Snowwoman

 

also two Ebenezer Scrooge, but they look different and came with different perks.

 

so this means 7 of them were "wasted"? i suppose...

 

and really i took a chance at getting a premium tank with this purchase, any crews were just a bonus. they look cool and all, but it does suck only having a couple perks on some of them. or just 1 :p
