wow skipped it because of the skin. Sigh
 


Good news!  Jambijon jumped the gun a little bit, this is part of the unskinned M41 90 going up for sale in the Premium Shop tomorrow.

Completely serious question: if I want to keep my Blackdog and also purchase the non WGNL version, will that be an option?


Absolutely.

Do we get to keep the Black Dog skin for the tank if we swap?


No, they are different vehicles in the game files.

more completely serious question.

 

does that mean an unskinned version is finally becoming available in the tech tree?


Not in the tech tree, but in the Premium Shop - tomorrow.

I understand that we keep the stats for the lekpz M 41 90 GF in our service record, but if we decide to swap does that mean our statistics transfer or do we have to 3 mark the tank again?

 

Best.

 

The statistics will not transfer because they are different vehicles in the game files.  You are of course welcome to keep the Black Dog.

 This is great, but why not just change it to a skin that can be added/removed depending on our mood on any given day? That would save you a lot of work too. 

 
Yes, it would.  Tl;DR: When this stuff was built the new customization system wasn't finished yet.

 What about the camo values built into the current skin? We technically paid for the camo as well, and we're getting an un-skinned version back w/o camo 

 

You are welcome to keep the skinned version with camo values, but if you swap you will have an un-skinned version without camo.

Ha ha, nope! Not even a single battle - but I would purchase the extra tank for double the grinding of 2x, 3x, 5x. Not so much for new crew development but for the continued advancement of established crews.
 

 

Wow, I see Bulldogs all over the place.  You should check it out for 1 round just to try it.  Me thinks you'll approve!

 

PS - Thanks Cabbage for answering people's questions!

Eh, good question, but I'll just slap on one of the million free camos they gave me instead. The FL one looks like a good option...

leKpz M 41 90 mm GF statistics will stay in your Service Record.

 

Never mind. This is a deal breaker. RIP me.

 

Without the ability to continue improving the tanks' stats, I'm just not interested.

not interested in yet more over bundled options.  we have garage slots, we have equipment, we have hundreds of unused personal reserves, we have more camo than we can use, and many of us have tons of gold.

 

you're proposing to nerf pref MM tanks by making them see your stupidly over powered tier 10s in tiny funnel maps, have not yet stated whether frontline will continue, and I already have a 5+ perk RU 251 crew

 

as an impulse use of gold I I already have, I could see picking one up.  I just can't see throwing money at it given all of the above.  *Shrug*

Really glad I check the forums today! This is great news. Looking forward to doing the swap on my AMX 13 57 (please?).

I would even consider a plain VK 168.01.

Heck, how about a stock STG?

 

The ugly skinned tanks have been a good enough reason to not buy certain offerings in the past.

 

They sold both of these in skinned and non-skinned versions. Seems most are offered that way these days.

Greetings Tankers!

 

If you own the lekpz M 41 90 GF (Black dog) then I have some good news for you!  If you are not satisfied with the sweet black on black grand finals skin, you now have a limited time offer to swap for the unskinned version for free!

 

Details on how to do that are listed below:

 

Swaps begin: Friday, June 1, 2018 16:00 Central/ 23:00 UTC
Swaps end: Friday, June 15, 2018 23:59 Central/ 06:59 UTC

 

After the event starts, stop playing the lekpz M 41 90 GF, and create a ticket in our customer support center under the category "leKpz M 41 90 mm GF Premium Tank swap."

 

That's it!  Seriously, that's all you have to do within the event time frame.  You don't even have to write us a message in the body of the ticket and if you do, we won't read it.  We are trying to make this as autonomous as possible with the tools available to us.

 

Now if the off chance you were playing the leKpz M 41 90 mm GF during the attempted swap it will fail and you will receive an email telling you to resubmit your request.  If the swap was successful you will receive an email saying the exchange was successful, and you will obviously have the unskinned version of the leKpz M 41 90 mm in your garage.

 

The swap will generally happen towards the end of the day but there is no guarantee it will be within 24 hours from your request.  

 

Rules of the swap:

  • Swap will NOT be done immediately but in batches, so please wait patiently for the confirmation email you will receive when it's done.
  • leKpz M 41 90 mm GF statistics will stay in your Service Record.
  • Equipment and Consumables will be moved to the Depot.
  • The Crew will be moved to the Barracks (temporary bunks, if there are no free ones).
  • The swap is only possible one way (leKpz M 41 90 mm GF -> leKpz M 41 90 mm). There's no reverse swap.
  • This process is fully automated. After your ticket submission, DO NOT Play with the leKpz M 41 90 mm GF or the swap will fail.

 

This swap CANNOT be reversed.  There is no going back

 

So now that you have all the details, click the link below to jump right to the ticket creation process:

 

https://na.wargaming.net/support/en/products/wot/help/116/2323/

 

See you on the battlefield! :playing:

 

You caught up to the EU server finally? Great! Now offer this for other skinned tanks like the Defender, Liberte and Primo Victoria. Please. Even if its one time only.

Now it is. All these skinned tanks can be turned into camos now. So do it. Make them camos, then give people who bought the permaskinned versions the unskinned tank + camo as compensation.

 

People actually seemed ok with this here.

Primo Victoria, okay. But the other two were sold in versions minus the clown paint, so if you bought them that way, why is it WG's job to let you swap?

Because it loses them nothing and gets them good PR?

I want the plain version that I can put camo on.

 

When WG redid camo and stacked them in storage I still have lots of German tank skins unused I can throw on.

Correct. In my case, not a big problem since Im never short credits but for others it could be a deal breaker. It wasn't clear, thus my clarifying question.

     I would consider this option if I was going to continue playing but the likelihood of the upcoming Russian refund makes it moot...

Why don't you wait and see what becomes of the "Russian Refund"?  Remember the Bat Chat changes that everyone panicked about? Well, WG decided not to go through with those. I'd have to imagine there will be a better situation forthcoming for pref MM tanks than was originally presented.

Here is an interesting question.  IIRC, when the camo is built-into the tank model, Vents, BIA, & Camo skill stack on top of the tank model attributes.  Thus, a skinned tank, which has the camo built-into the model, has a slight, but measurable advantage over a non-skinned version, which has had the camo paint added.

 

Is my recollection correct?
