I think it would be interesting if the sold for gold custom tank options. Like side skirts of armor, custom paint that was not camo. Like gun rings, they could also add on things to the tank just for looks. I am just thinking things that could be added for looks to make your tank stand out a bit more, but not actually give any real benefit.

If they was fairly cheap but cost gold it would give WGN another boost to income and give people that really like their tanks a way to make them their own.

I got the idea because a lot of other games have options to make your character look different. From dyes on their armor and clothes to vanity clothing to make them look a specific way, all with out effecting game play. For a lot of f2p games that is one of the bigger sources of income is from vanity shop items. I just think it would be a good addition for WoT for the players as well as the company.

For people that want it. It would only be a option, for anyone that doesn't consider it worth it they don't buy it. It doesn't help or hinder them to buy it.

As for the gold it is another income for WGN, I could imagine a number of people willing to spend a little money to make their tank stand out on their favorite tanks. Which is more gold sold, which is more money for WGN, which hopefully means more new content for us down the road.

I like the idea I'm just not sure if devs will ever consider it. They've got a lot on their mind right now and I don't think they would do it soon. Possibly when they slow down and take a break from adding alot of new content like the German medium line they said they were gonna do. I'm sure they'll get around to it though.

I think the devs would appreciate more reasons to put off the German lines yet again.

True but then they would lose a part of their fan base that love the German tanks.

The more add-ons they do, the more lag on the server.  Many people have issues with lag.  If adding makeup and perfume makes server response time worse, it is not something I support.

While it would only shows up on your screen, if you want to look pretty, go find/make a skin.

Well, I think that external modules would be nice, but for credits (not gold) and they need to be researched for every specific tank, however, more like being optional and accessible only when the vehicle is "Elite".Say for example, it would be much more awesome if you could upgrade a Pz IV into a Pz IV G with additional armor skirts that make the tank heavier, however, they could increase HP pool and armor. My point is to make an elite vehicle truly elite, show off and be proud of it, that kind of thing.
Furthermore it would give players something more to look for with their tanks, rather than researching the next tier and moving on, keeping only a few tanks in the garage because they are needed for tank companies and so on. I would really love it to have my favorite tank and be able to add additional features on it when it is elite. Features that would further promote gameplay, without sacrificing balance. This feature will go even more nicely with premium tanks. Most tanks with upgraded suspensions have too much space not being used. And bonuses for these features should be tiny so that they not affect the general game balance. :Smile_great:

There is difference between answers:
- I would not use it.
- I am hater and do not want other people to have such opportunity.

I, for example, would tune up my Leo right away, just because I can and I want to.

Yes I mean stuff exactly like that only a lot more options.

Also to those saying their is other things that need work. I agree, I am not saying drop everything and do it now. But some of the stuff like paint options would be fairly minor options, they already have camo paint options. Paint options for the tanks would be the same but with no camo value. I am only saying it is something I would like to see them begin to add a bit at a time. Maybe a couple of new options with every patch.

I would like to see skins built into the game.
What I mean by that is this: Either you use credits or gold and you can buy a skin making it look like it belongs to a completely different Army!, Complete with unique camoflage and markings!
For example: The Axis Powers had more nations in it than just Germany, Japan, & Italy, This is the Marking of The Finnish Army During WW2

I'm pretty sure this is the marking.

better vision mechanics or upgradeable vision mechanics for tanks that had better optics in combat
