So just now I saw on youtube the announcement clip for the Tiger 131. It a nice looking vehicle that I assume will have the africa-corps logo on it and all that stuff.

But since this will be a new premium vehicle (and likely tier 7) I will not buy it for a simple reason.

 

We have too many premium tanks, and now that I see this tank I thought to myself; 'Well this is basically just an ordinary Tiger. But with different skin.'

So with that in mind a small idea came, something simple and something you see in many other MMOs these days.

 

Skins have been in MMOs for quite some time to make characters, weapons and whatnot look more unique. So why not put some skin in the game?

If wargaming puts skins in the game so each tank can look just a little bit more unique it will be visually pleasing for the players/viewers and also more interesting. 

 

With that being said, Tiger 131 for example should not be a new vehicle but rather just a skin. And when I say skin I don't mean camouflage. To negate that problem we can say the skin has the same camovalue as the one in game, you just don't see it.

 

What are your thoughts people? I think it's a win-win situation for both player and Wargaming.

Why bother with a "sniper" tank with low penetration? And I had hope that they would buff this horrible gun.

Yeah more or less. But it's still just a Jap Tiger. So even if it has a BIA skill. It's still not worth it IMO. But it's the 131 tank, the name alone will sell it.
