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

 

They really need to get some workaround to let us use existing skilled crews to level up theese. i would have loved to merger my Kraft into some existing crew.

While I appreciate the added voices, there is waaaaaaay too much duplication.  It actually stops me from purchasing more.  And who the heck needs or wants a merc crew?  

 

If you want to continue to sell these, then you need to change it up WG.  No more random--particularly if you are going to throw in Merc crews.  I'm willing to buy decorative/customizable stuff but not this anymore.  At least, let us choose what nation to put the crew in, or allow us a choice of a couple nations--that would at least make duplicates a bit more tolerable. 

 

Give us a bundle.  Include them in a tank purchase.  But no more random.

Might only be the cat.... Definitely got no special sounds for the ones I got.

 

Yeah, no special voices on any of the ones I got either. These are a fun idea as in principle, getting a crew with skills will almost certainly be more useful than getting a base gold drop with some other fluff in the standard loot chests. However, like others have said, this excess of US crews is frustrating and has restricted me to buying only 3 for now (all US, one skill). WG, can you please consider letting the crews be nation 'unlocked' until the user places them in their first tank? Otherwise I can't see that people will keep buying these once the novelty wears off.

 Just to point out that in the pc version snow maidens are available for free if you want, why are we worse than those who play there?

 

 

Snow Maidens aren't exactly free on PC. You have to work to unlock them on PC and, if time is running out, possibly buy x-mas crates to make it easier getting the necessary decorations.

Remember, it's just a game!

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.

hmmm that’s interesting.  We’ll have to take a look at that :). Tanks for letting us know!

I keep seeing quite a few more people speaking of the same things I was talking about earlier.  No real incentive to get a brand new crew to grind out.  Not to mention, why even bother with a holiday themed Merc Crew?  Literally, EVERY SINGLE MERC TANK has its own special crew.  No need for any more of those.  

 

WG, please take into consideration just making "Holiday Crew Vouchers" that we can use in the Crew Customization section to unlock holiday themed portraits for crews we already have.  There is obviously a ton of interest in getting some neat new holiday themed crew pics, but not a whole lot for getting brand new crews or ending up with duplicates that we'll never use and just take up space in the barracks.  The voucher system you guys have incorporated for in-game items has been one of the biggest hits, when it comes to QoL improvements you've added to the game.  It allows the player to pick up items they actually want and will use, instead of getting something that will just sit in the garage forever.  Something like this would go a long way for the holiday themed crews.  Thanks!

More Voices would be good too. ive got enough vouchers, but not enough choice. Incredible to think of with what the beta on 360 started ;)

And the Mercs, and the other ones that got a unique name and Portrait.

Why are there mercenary crews in these boxes???? Every merc tank comes with a good crew with at least one skill already. That is the real scam of these chests, I need crews for the regular nations that have to start from scratch.

I took the plunge, future ghost and Yule Cat (didnt know shes swedish...) a few good christmas fathers, 2 scrouge 2 ruprecht ,2 frosts but came at a price, 3 drummer boys, 3 mrs claus, severall elves 3 of them Jarjar merc.

For the Wallet Warrior the 3 skill crews are a good value for the buck considering the play time needed to grind that amount of Exp. but the missing voices, multiple doubles and and the grain of gold coming with package spoiled the impression.

Any trade in for other crews?
