Inb4 Bonds will be available in premium shop in bundles, because thats how WG makes money.

Average Joe will want them  without effort , or unable to earn them because average , the he will start crying on forums "omg I want bonds / its not fair" , WG will provide in prem shop, and thats how to p2w.



edit: bonds WILL be in prem shop,  because M6A2E1 was in shop ( "we will NEVER sell M6A2E1" , Viktor Kisly`s words )  , Fury was in shop ( "get this tank in this one - time only opportunity" ) , E25 was in shop ( "E25 wont be sold anymore" ) , I could go on forever like this.

TLDR; Can we please, please be allowed to pick male crew members from personal missions? Not all of us want female crew voices...


The problem right now when it comes to crew members is that WG force us to use a certain gender. All of us are different, some enjoy having girls in their tanks, some think it looks ridiculous. But even though it's a pure cosmetic feature, we're still forced to use males as regular crew members, and females as personal mission rewards. It should be up to each individual player what he/she wants to see and hear when playing.


Since this is a pure cosmetic feature, I think that players should be given the option to decide if they want males or females in their tanks. Currently we can only get female crew members from personal missions, and if a player want male crew voices or crew images when playing the game, he can't use the female crew members. Since not all players want to use modifications for the game client, this becomes a bit troublesome.


My solution to this problem is divided into 2 steps:

- Personal missions should reward the player with "Veteran crew members".

- It should be possible to choose gender when recruiting a crew member.


So instead of being rewarded with a female crew member for a certain mission, players are rewarded with a crew member of the same skill-level, but they may choose the gender of the crew member aswell. When recruiting an ordinary crew member, the player may also choose gender of that crew member. This basically means that with my suggestion we would be able to recruit ordinary crew members as females and personal mission crew members as males.



In order to see the difference between regular and veteran crew members to more easily know which crews that have permanent BiA/SoS and not, there can be some kind of visual difference between them, for instance:


Regular crew members:


Veteran crew members (suggestion 1):


Veteran crew members (suggestion 2):


This suggestion would also adress 2 issues with crew members:


1. Players would be able to customize their gaming experience to a greater extent. If you want only female crew members, now you can recruit "regular" female crew members for all of your tanks. If you want only male crew members, now you can also recruit males from personal missions. Since it's a cosmetic feature all players should be able to pick what they prefer the most.


2. It's quite common that players have one/multiple female crew members left over in the barracks, because SoS doesn't work together with BiA. With this suggestion, you still wouldn't be able to mix BiA and SoS, however you'd be able to mix veteran crew members with regular crew members and therefore fill out the missing spots.


So to summarize:

Regular crew members can be either male or female, and they start without any skills. Veteran crew members are awarded from personal missions, they can also be either male or female, and depending on their gender, they get either BiA or SoS for free.


If this suggestion would be implemented, there's one more problem that needs to be adressed. Many players have already recruited one or more female crew members and might want to change the gender of these crew members. In order to do this, WG could use a temporary webpage, in which you login with your account. The webpage would then fetch all your crew data and give the player the chance to pick gender of all crew members. When done, the player clicks on a submit button and the data is sent and updated in the database.

Looks promising. Ofc some vehicles will have bigger carry potential (:rolleyes: PVP , Canceridan,...) but that is game balance issue.

Regarding the new currency I think it needs to be simple and onedimensional (no need to buy premium vehicles with that cuz we got gold for that matter).

I can get onto the server but as a few people have said, free exp and gold keeps disappearing. As soon as it synchronises it just goes away again so I can't actually research or play in any tanks. :L

As always you take a good idea and smear it with WGness...

It's good that you make it only for top tanks but instead of adding even more imbalances in the form of "rewards" wouldn't be better and more logical to actually make all players play from a leveled plain?! Negating all bonuses from equipment and crew as well as making all consumables and ammo free, or just limit ammo and consumables to be non premium only, would seem a lot more proper.
