It is NO OK! What about who bought before the Patriot version ?! Free exchange  or just WG will make a p**s ?! ALSO! was told before from Wargaming Staff that no-camo version will never arrive on EU cluster! 

 

 

ps. highlighted to show blind WG staff

I bought this tank the first time it was on sale, can we change now our camo? I don´t like it. I would like to have the option to disable it

 

For the players who bought the tank few months ago, give us the option to disable patriotic cammo , thanks !

Why no discount for people who already have Patriot? They're the same tank, just different camo...

So I guess you figured T8 skirmishes weren't broken enough yet to your liking? :)

 

Be smart people, buying these tanks will only make the game experience worse for everyone in the long run.

Can I expect to now be able to get an option to strip my patriot of it's overly-patriotic camo?

Or should I prepare to be dissapointed?

Finnaly was worth the wait I knew Wargaming will change their mind some day.

Since they have different entries in API (just like Defender and 252U) you should prepare to be disappointed.

Good job my apathy level for this game is basically maxed out right now, else I would be pretty pissed off at the whole clown camo saga.

 

Edit: wasted my 2000th post on this nonsense. Some things never change I guess.

That may indeed be true. Look "forward" to see the Liberte available in the store as a collector's gem of the week, also without camo.

Give us option to exchange for normal tank without that ridiculous ''patriot'' cammo!!!

Can you please fire that sad clown [edited]responsible for WG EU sales... Or require him/her to paint his/her face with USA flag for duration of working for WG.

So every new premium tank youre now also going to sell in two colours?

So either force collectors to buy the same tank twice and totally screw them or ruin peoples collections as if u cant/wont buy all, why bother collecting?

This along with just too many expensive tier 8 premiums recently has stopped me collecting. :(

Thing is, I was confident WG would get a negative reaction whenever they did choose to sell the second variant.

 

When EU got shafted without the choice that other servers got, and the tanks released were very good. A bunch of people, myself included, went "well it's a good tank and apparently WG EU have made they decision clear". Buy it anyway despite having a ridiculous and ugly camo forced onto it. I'm not an American patriot, why would I want to drive a tank painted like that? 

 

Now it's been on sale a few times since and, again, no choice. This reinforces the idea that WG EU are actually applying some weird consistency for once in this game's existence.

 

Suddenly it pops up with no camo option.

 

So you have some people happy their patience paid off, and kudos to them.  You also have a bunch of people who reluctantly accepted WG EU being different to get a useful/wanted tank. Some modded out the camos or whatever, but the idea is still there. So you have managed to anger them originally by treating us differently to other servers but also this is now apparent generousity or something? Screw this, apathy only gets me so far.

 

This is highly triggering one a few levels - 1) you treat us poorly initially (and you saw it as you react to the Black tanks) 2) you reinforce that this was your decision and you will seemingly stick with it 3) you have no sense of communication with the community of these issues 4) you [edited]sell it without camo anyway.

 

I don't give a flying [edited]if you suddenly offer it for 50% or 25% or, hell, 1% of its cost to people with the Clown version. You have geniunely upset me to the point where, and I was already pretty pissed off about the Skirmish changes, that I'm not sure how much lower you could get.

 

Gah.

Will wait for a Liberte return I think its a much better tank.

 

If it has clown camo only then no deal.

If it has standard camo I will probaby buy it though grudgingly

If it has Standard camo yet keeps the Liberté, égalité, fraternité  on the gun barrel than its a case of take my money.

 

Wargaming sales please give players more choice.

More choice = more money
