There is no justification for the design that a tank is unavailable while a match completes.

 

It should be changed so that if a player's tank is destroyed in a match, they can exit and start another.

Is it for some 'purity' of the conceit that this game of 15 random people on teams of all nations needs the 'realism' that the tank is tied up in the match? That isn't close to justification.

Is it not wanting people to leave a match early? There are already protections against that if the tank isn't destroyed.

Is it wanting people to have multiple tanks to play? The game already offers three free slots, enough to keep playing tanks,

This is nothing but an annoyance and bad thing for the player who wants to play the same tank again.

No. Because then botters would be going faster to tier 10. 

It would actually give reason to yolo and just exit when things aren't going your way or when the idiots say "XVM says 19% going to drown" and then they'd just do that. I say let them suffer.

Your tanks presence in the battle is still earning XP, even though you're dead, as your team is still earning XP and that's a portion of your earnings.  I would say that I'd be ok with players pulling their tank out of a fight after being destroyed, but before its over only if they surrender all their earnings for that match (credits and XP).  Otherwise, if you want to spend more time playing a particular tank, spend less time dead.

Disagree, disagree so freaking hard.

You don't punish the entire population of the game to stop the minority, that is such a stupid train of thought, right in line with the whole "We have to ban this for adults because think of the children! What if the children did it?" argument.

 

I have wanted the ability to hop out of battle once my tank was destroyed, pay the repair costs right then and there with the credit's I have, and hop right into another battle since this game was in closed beta. This is literally the only game of this genre that does this, War Thunder lets you use planes / tanks that where in another battle that's still going on, and I'm pretty sure Armored Warfare does as well. It's a stupid stupid design.
