  1. When the thumbnail makes you expect Wargheyming did some fun mode for it’s birthday. But you figure out it’s just a render image and there is the usal shitty grinding for some trash and sales for some other trash. 3rd month beeing WoT clean now. Fock that game.

      1. What a nice way to celebrate a birthday, when they invite you to pay them money…

        Would prefer some goodies instead. Discounts are fine though

    1. Please, don’t use Reddit as a source of anything useful lol
      Crew 2.5 isn’t that bad. Just certain CCs whining about not being able to shit on all other players anymore. Because they won’t know the reload time of any enemy tank for example.
      The link says it’s postponed not cancelled if that’s even true.

      1. WOT happy drugs you on buddy? as you must be on planet 9 to think Crew 2.5 or 3.0 is in any way good for us the players
        ~ Crew 2.5 is just a preliminary for WG a cash grab one way or another at some later stage for actual Crew 3.1 – where it’s get your credit card out kiddo! its going to be expensive €€€ if you have 50+ or way more Crews (just the way WG likes it

        1. You don’t know what you’re talking about. You’ll be able to use crews for more than one tank. So why do you even need so many crews you Muppet
