Download a skin or simply play drunk if you're in for the comedy value...

 

 

Can't be bothered to download skins, and technically I can't get drunk (I'd be sick way before I get to that stage).

And the majority of the EU playerbase would be sick of such anime tanks before they hit the server

Yes we know, because of ignorance and bigotry

Like some of the people here, I too hope to never see this joke of a tank on the EU servers. I understand that we have tanks that are purely from blue prints, I understand that we have a couple of clones but introducing purely fictitious tanks that exist in some weird Asian cartoons is not only cringe worthy but also absolutely Edited.

 

If you wanna have them, feel free to play on the Asia server.

Or, and let this sink in a while; they don't have the same tastes as you.

 

You are the only one here that wants these, but we're all the bigots, and are ignorant.

 

You seem the type of person that accuses others of being racist if they choose white in a game of chess.

Yeah, that's the only possible explanation. Ignorance and bigotry also caused Wargaming not to implement for example the IS8 Balls in anything but a special game mode and the only reason that Wargaming has yet to add star wars themed tech tree or vehicles is once again ignorance and bigotry, right?

I never said everyone in this thread is ignorant or bigots because they have a different opinion to me, people are free to have opinions, and their have likes and dislikes. So don't try twisting my comments. The problem is, a lot of the time people are ignorant as to what Anime actually is, and it's not something that is limited to the haters, and there are a lot of bigots out there that have said racist or borderline racist comments surrounding Japanese cartoons.

You are overthinking and/or twisting my comment, that is fine. The problem is, Anime themed tanks, long as they are based on real tanks like the Panzer IV Ausf H of Ankou team, certainly are fine, no arguments there, but I do understand peoples arguments against the Valkyria tanks since they aren't technically real designs.

Personally I find the whole idea of having stylised pubescent females as your characters/heroes weird in the extreme.

That's because you're ignorant. Or racist, or a bigot. Or an Aries, or something. Allegedly. :hiding:

Not totally surprised you'd come out with that since you seem to like twisting comments.

I wouldn't call it weird to the extreme, but it's not something that is limited solely to Japanese Cartoons, there are also Japanese and American games that have done exactly the same.

A better idea would be for those haters to man up a bit. Anime are essentially the same as Cartoons (in fact, Anime itself is short for the Japanese word for Animation).

 

But we already know that haters will hate and bigotry will never end.

 

Considering how the "cartoon" tanks have been received here on EU. I highly doubt they will treat these tanks differently. It has nothing to do with the fact that it's Anime. It's just that most think the crazy colors on those tanks or ships has nothing to do vs the theme of this game. And considering how most hate the fantasy tanks we already have. I suspect this won't do better. As most did not hate the Patriot because they hated USA. It was down to the colors it had on the camo more so then anything.

Well at the risk of agreeing with the most argumentative poster in the forum, I think they look quite funky.

My spare pennies are going on a Cromwell B this month though.

For those who complain, the game is called World of Tanks, not World of WWII.

Please no - the clown tank camos are on the borderline as far as I'm concerned. The vehicles themselves aren't completely made up however - so the visuals are just one of those things.

 

I don't want to see stupid Pokemon on tracks running amok on the servers as well - Edited. Why stop there? The hordes of muppets will want My Little Pony premium tanks next..... 

 

I really don't want WoT to descend into even more of a circus experience than the current random teams provide.

This is true with exception to the FV215b in the British Heavy Tank line. Fake tanks never did recieve a lot of good reception.

Considering these have no base nor connection with WoT, otuside being tanks, I would prefer not seeing them, as else it would open a floodgate of many more odd & weird anime/cartoon/movie/fantasy tanks.

 

That said, i'm not opposed in seeing tanks form movies, anime/cartoons etc, as long as they got a RL basis. We even have a few tanks already ingame like this (the Fury & Rudy) & they fit.

The Girl und Panzer tanks would be the farthest stretch I imagine, as they're existing tankmodels (at least from what I've seen) just with (sometimes) crazy colours (mainly the main tanks it seems)

Considering how the Patriot & Liberte colourful skins got received, I doubt the bright colored tanks of GuP would get any better reception tbh.

 

But a big no to fantasy tanks without any basis in RL.

The Crazy colours was in only 3 or 4 episodes iirc but after that they go back to more historical colors.
