When all is lost and you are about to die, how about triggering the driver's FIRETANK skill: set your tank on fire and ram the enemy and you both explode in flames.

Of greater concern to the playerbase is the following issue.

 

Is it  "qp....ranger" as in a Quaint Puffy Ranger?

 

or is it "QPR anger" and a very annoyed London football fan?

I am so disappointed in you. I was hoping that you would come up with something interesting, like 'New gerbil wheel: Gives tank a speed boost based on the driver's skill as a gerbil trainer' or 'Miniature giant space hamster: sits on driver's shoulder, and on command, will run out through the driver's view slot and attempt to blind the designated enemy tank' but no..... just a flaming bad idea... :amazed:

How about just sets your tank on fire. You know for those maps where you can't find a body of water to take the cowardly way out. Reminds me of this: https://www.youtube....h?v=aOd7r01m_2A

Personally I would prefer a Dukes Of Hazard air horn option on my tank as I yolo off a cliff trying to hit someone below.

Even I think YOLOing is a much better alternative to this and doesn't even require skill since some players seem to do it natively.

​I was one against 4 in type 5. I had about 500 hp left and three of their tanks jumped off a cliff to ram me to death. I lost about 200 health, and they all died. I was so busy laughing I didn't notice their t62 creep up behind me and shoot me in [edited].

Latter, sadly enough.

I don't see WG implementing any of these ides because those people lack both courage and vision. So I instead focus on the more realistic prospects. After all, we all know about many fireship deployment success stories from the annals of history, so it is hardly a leap of faith to image tanks doing the same fiery thing.

Not Q Pranger?

 

Or is that not PC at the moment?

Full marks on coming up with an idea I don't think has been suggested before.  An idea possibly more at home in WoWS though.

 

Could be implemented as a crew directive rather than a skill.

It is true that they only implement ides in March, however it would likely take them at least that long to think about these things. If you are wanting suggestions that provide a more realistic focus, perhaps these?

 

Rose coloured glasses: Improves crew moral (and thereby crew skills) by convincing them that the other team are all tomatoes. 

Blurred Lines: Commander sings a controversial song over loudspeakers, causing disruptions and arguments among enemy mixed gender crews

Youtube Star: Has little effect in game but generates extra threads in the forums.
