Well it looks like WG is following in the failed footsteps of so many other games. Skin Jobs, the latest in a long line of bad ideas, and following on the footsteps of FL Mode which has been a fantastic addition to the game, is just wrong.

 

Now don't get me wrong, I'm not against a quality premium skin. So long as it's not some dookie looking anime skin, and a proper skin that maybe adds some different detail, some hammers and shovels, a log, that sort of stuff for a reasonable price. I'm down for that, again  for a reasonable price.

 

I don't care if it comes with the torch of gondor, $34 for a skin job with a crew, no.. And this isn't me being cheap, I've bought a lot of tanks, and don't mind at all spending the money. That is just a bit out to lunch of you ask me.

 

If WG makes money on it though, good on em, I just hope we're not going to see loot crates next. Though I don't mind the implementation of them in WoWS. Encourages you to play and rewards you for doing so.

Don’t buy it. I’m not. No need for a big rant about it.

I was very sour to this till I found out you can hide the skin in settings.

Now I'm happy!

This ^^

 

If 10 million people want to buy a skin and that helps keep the game going, I'm all for it. The only people who have to see the nonsense skins are the people who want to. Freedom of choice is good for everyone.

Yup +1

 

If your fav tank is the KV-5, (and you don't mind paying tier 8 premium $ for a tier 6 tank) now you can have one that makes prem credits/XP and comes with a 0 skillz BIA crew.


 

I don't have to look at a silly KV-40K skin.


 

All good.

:coin:

Then don’t buy the new skins? There’s really nothing wrong with vanity premium content, it does nothing to upset game balance and requires only a modest investment in effort from the design team.

​Most likely. Might even get the KV-2 just for the crew and the prem credit. I mean, is $35, really that much? My wife spends more on coffee in a few days than it cost for this tank.

At least its a better route taken than releasing a OP TD (Object 268 Version 4) in order to flesh out as much money from people burning up to tech tree to get it, nerfing when revenue projections are reached. :sceptic:

You are the second person to made this claim.  Which other popular games failed because they started selling skins?

If they offer a Hello Kitty skin for the Japanese superheavies, my wallet is all over that.

i got it, but i removed the stupid skin and put on normal cammo.

yes i could have just bought a normal kv2, but that would mean i needed another crew for it.  

this way i can put my existing guys in it, and 34 bucks is like an hour and 15 minutes for me at work.

the bia crew is just a bonus that i might put in a future tank some day.

I would have, if it was available with Karma Koin for payment...

 

I got my first Pool's medal in the BDR and have kept it and play it often.  Wouldn't mind getting the skin.
