Yesterday it was fine, today it's aim time is ridiculous and cannot hit anything. I have a 25 skilled crew and 100% standing, just lost that because 14 shots fired, 2 pens, yay. Dropped from 100% to 97%. Every time you do a weekly update, tanks feel different.

I don't have a problem with that tbh. But my Charioteer just cannot do anything. It's like a 5 sec aim time.

It's always had bad gun handling. That's why I hated playing it.

You have a 25 perk crew with 17k battles?

I have 3. Russian, German and British. 

 

Used the T 34 88 to train the Russian and German crew along with some other tanks. When I started on ps4, I used one crew per nation instead of multiple crews. So currently my Charioteer, e50 and my 430u hold my best crews. It's not hard to crew train. I used all my crew xp vouchers I saved over the years and never used.

It's been perfect for me up until today. Crew doesn't even have snakebite and still works for me. It's why I was able to get 100% standing. I just realized the maps today are constant city maps and heavy brawling maps. Not good for the Charioteer. Oh well, I'll get the standing back.

I sold mine years ago. I hated the vehicle, the effective aim time was far too long for the playstyle.

They buffed it at one point from the 2.5 to 2.3, but the it seemed like it was back at 2.5 today. I love the tank, it's my favorite. I like to be flexible and not need prem ammo. I play it more like a paper medium than anything.

Never really understood why some folks want to have   "a supercrew". Do you really have 1 Russian tier X vehicle in your garage or do you swap crew into different vehicle by using gold (horrible waste of money if you do it imo)? I personally want to have pretty good crew in all of my tanks at tier X (I currently have over 50 tier X's and all have 8-14 skill crew, expect artillery).

I have other crews, never said I only have one crew per nation. I said "when I started." And yes, I do transfer them and no I do not use gold. Getting a crew from 75% to 100% takes one or two games. It's not a big deal.

Without crew xp boosters and serious luck, it takes way more than 1 or 2 games. Since you can't win all your games, you might have to strugle with bad team mates and even getting 1 win and good game might take 5-10 games, if you're unlucky. At least that's my experience...

That's your experience, not mine. Takes me 1 to 2 games. I'm not some random red player, super uni.

Yeah and they used the 20 pounder, not the 105 because they were destroying the turrets and their rings. I just like the look of the tank, that's all. Plus I don't mind losing that extra 400 hit points that mediums of the same tier get for a really punchy gun. I can't explain why I like it or why it works for me, but it's fantastic. Yesterday just had bad map rotation that wasn't suited for the tank. I wish we had more than all of 3 maps to play on. Yesterday all it was for me was that German city map (can't remember the name) himmeldorf and steppes. That's it, all day yesterday.

I have the 10x XP booster for getting my crews from 75% to 100% when I'm transfer them.
Usually they are on 100% after 1 or 2 games...Of course you have to play a little more defensive in this games.

It takes 20k xp to go from 75% training to 100%

 

So no, it does not take you 1 - 2 games. Not without using daily win bonuses or xp boosters. You do not earn 10-20k xp a game. Regardless of how good you are without some multipliers.

So please, show me where I stated that I don't use boosters or prem tanks? One or two boosters and a prem tank with crew training gets it done. Look for an argument elsewhere.

And you also said you've used all your vouchers to get 3 crews to 25 skills.  It would be less difficult to believe you if you didn't blatantly lie so much.
