Tankers, 

 

We know that life gets in the way, and not all of us have time (or hard drive space) to try out the 1.3 Common Test.

 

So our content team has put together a sweet preview of a bunch of the Large Decals that are being added to the Exterior menu in update 1.3!

Of course, our examples are a bit bland due to the fact that they're shown on a plain AMX 50b, but personally I am quite looking forward to seeing what kind of awesome paint-jobs folks will come up with incorporating these decals.

 

 

To check out more decals and learn a little more about how they'll work, head on over to the article on our news portal.

I know you want to be all excited about this, but this really not the kind of tank customization I want.  (NOTE: I am probably not a typical player)

There is WAY too little options for what to put on your tank and why cant we just stick it on wherever we would like? cool idea not executed well at all. :sceptic:

With this kinds of cosmetics, when can we expect you to sell the Valkyria Chronicle tanks? Kinda amazing you would not sell these vehicles after going back on your CEO's words and then WGNA's own words to sell the M6A2E1.

 

Also, can you guys hurry Minsk up to address premium ammo already? Stop polishing this game when crap broken mechanics like premium ammo still exists. Do you guys not really care about balance at all!?

Domo / WG Staff,

 

I appreciate the work on customization, but yeah, I do wish it were all more "historic" and come up with more things that would be similar to stuff that was used historically as to give people more options without going overboard while at the same time not having to stick with a small amount of options.  If that makes sense... perhaps a middle ground, I guess - so we can all see each others custom stuff without having any boxes to check or uncheck.  I don't like the idea of going through the trouble of customizing my vehicle and then half the players have "non-historic" unchecked in options so they aren't seeing it anyway.  *shrug*  Just seems kinda pointless.  I don't like to be negative though, so again, I do appreciate the work done and hope you take this feedback into consideration.

this is NOT what we want. this is a lazy customization for decals. 

 

we want to be able to be able to place the decals anywhere on the tank, not be stuck with your [edited][edited]locations. we want to be able to scale the size (not be stuck with your 3 sizes). we want to be able to change the colors of the decals.

 

if you're afraid of someone putting the decals into some position that is offensive then why not make it so decals can't overlap or be close to each other? problem solved.

 

some examples of WG's poor choices on decal positions:

I am frustrated that you can only put them in pre-determined locations and that they cost gold. 

I remember the good old days when you could buy emblems and inscriptions for credits, and I gotta admit: I loved putting 'em on my tanks.

 

Now everything costs gold, which obviously costs actual cash. At least in Blitz, you can watch ads to get gold. 

Take some lessons from War Thunder. You earn emblems and inscriptions for in-game achievements, such as 

100 kills on a certain type of fighter or whatever. You can only put two decals on your tank at a time unless you get

a premium account, but what I love is that you can rotate, resize, and place the decals wherever you please. 

 

War Thunder is a great game, and I know that even if you can't reach what they have, please just add more options for 

customization without gold.

Neat.


 

Please add the National emblems, so (for example) I can put the German Iron Cross on my T-34, or the Russian Star on my Pz-4 and make them "captured".


 

Also need more numbers!!!

I won't use this customization at all.  I would like the ability to be able to place the deals where I want and not in pre-determined locations like it currently is.

I want to add, this type of customization is really "tacky" lol. I'm not against "unrealistic" customization, I quite like being able to color my tank whatever I want, but having a big [edited]decal on the front or top of your tank is really hideous in my opinion. I think a lot of people would appreciate it if you thought this through more before implementing it.

AND

 

Please our Clan Decals to the items we can put on out tanks.

Would be very cool to have the clan decal on the sides of the turret.

:)

I'm thinking "disable non-historic" (aka enable [edited]oric) should make em go away.

We'll have to see...

Let's trade... You give us this option only if you allow us to sell the garbage, non-historic emblems we already have too many of sitting in our garages?

 

Realistically, nobody really wanted this feature, and it's yet another example of wasting development time instead of addressing the real concerns of your customers.

I like that decal!  I'd say work like this is a step in a positive direction.  But I'd like an option where I can hide the non-historic stuff if you please.  Sometimes its neat to see different tank cosmetics but they never can replace the historic stuff.  An option to hide it would be great when a player wants a historic feel or a really glaring or clownish look is just too much.

What he said. Also historical aerial recognition symbols- large stars, orange panels, white bars.

Can we put random soldiers on the field to give us the satisfaction of squishing them? Better than decals.........
