Greetings Everyone, please help me out here.

 

I bought the Premium Tier IV German Bf110-ic, I have also researched up that line proper and have now unlocked and bought the regular non-premium version of that Tier IV Messerschmitt Bf110 B (i think it's B).

 

So my question is this: My premium Bf 110 came with a 100% crew, my regular 110 came with 50% crew. How do I get my 50% crew up to 100% quickest? Do i take them and put them in the premium Bf 110? I am a little confused as when i tried that, it said the crew was not trained for that plane (even though it is a Bf 110, just a slight variant of it, when i placed the regular crew into the premium 110).

 

So in short, how can I train my regular HF crew up quickest? I know I can spend silver to get them to 90%, but the after that?

Just keep participating in battles and your crew will train up, it takes a while at lower tiers.

Always spend the money on the 90% crew. Then fight until they are 100%/

 

Not really sure what the question is here.

Can't use premium to train percentage up anymore, you need to use them in their assigned planes to get the percentage up.

 

Yes, pay the silver where possible, saves you much effort.

Spend the silver and bring them to 90%. On another note, I believe you will find the 110c to be a much weaker plane then its robust sister. Except in cases of a head-on engagement, the 110c is outmatched by the 110b in every category.

Hmm...do silver bring crews to 90% regardless of their previous levels now?

Thank you for clearing this up for me. Darn shame we cant use premiums to train crews. @

pyantoryng #6 yes silver will bring you r crew up to 90% regardless of current skill level.

Wargaming shot themselves in the foot a couple of months back when they took the ability to move and train pilots in to the premium planes.

My opinion is that spending real money on premium planes is now a waste of money.

Personally I will never buy another premium until they restore the original function.

You -can- use premium planes to train crews on their skill points though, and they even have 20% boost and accelerate training to go along.

so once my crew from a certain german plane gets to 100% proficiency, i can stick them in the premium plane and train them up faster, providing the premium is also a german plane and then put them back into the regular plane once i feel their perk skill level is trained up? confused even more now. Can you explain it to me like i'm 4?

Here is how it works:

If you want your crew from (insert plane) 110b (just as an example) to be trained a bit faster, you have to now train your 110b crew to the German premium plane you put them in. Pay the 100k silver to train them to 90% in that premium plane. Once you get them trained to 100% in that premium plane, then you get get to train the skill points. If you want to put that crew back into the 110b, you have to retrain them to the 110b and pay the 100k sliver to train them back to 90%. Once they are back to 100% they can resume training for those skill points. 

 It's not worth retraining the crew for a few battles, unless you are putting your crews into t8 premium planes(which I suggest you stay away from t8 for awhile) and are able to win enough for 200 silver for the cost of retraining to 90% on both sides.

Is this right?  I don't think you need to change their proficiency to the premium plane.  Just get them 100% in the 110b, then use the premium to upgrade their skills while they're still proficient in the 110b.  You take a penalty training the 110b crew to the 110c, and then a penalty again retraining them back to the 110b...or am I missing something?

You are correct, Changing the pilot's proficiency to a premium plane is a completely unnecessary waste. Train the pilot to 90% in the non-premium of your choice, play a few battles to get them up to 100%, and then put him in your premium to train up skills.

Thank you so much for this, now i understand, so the premium ca be used to train up the crew's perks so to say. Excellent!
