So, i find annoying the new way that the garage interface shows us the Daily bonus in each tank (hover the mouse over the tank to check).

Personally i liked more the old style, where the daily bonus (x2,x5 etc) were shown in the tank icon, as it was much easier for me (with 111 tanks in the garage) to determine and prioritize which tanks to play (cause hovering over 111 tanks is crap).

 

Made a poll, so feel free to vote, and if u have a new suggestion, let WG know, by commenting in the topic...

Why not just use the provided filter that selects only tanks where the daily bonus is still available?

Is it just me, because I do see them the "old way" . Maybe its your mods removing them.

I have a 3 row carousel, cause i am not the kind of guy that uses the filter system, and i have some mods that tells me how i do (or suck ) in my tanks straight in the icon.....

I understand that the marks of excellence, the % of victories is set to be shown only when u get the mouse on a tank, but the daily doubles was not that bad as an idea.... why hide it?

Nope, maybe your mods keep them visible.

you have 100+ tanks and refuse to use the filter system.  Nope, can't help you then, your choice, live with it.

 

Perhaps the move to hiding it was that it's now easier for them to offer different multipliers without having to have worry about the correct little 'star number' icon showing up.  I personally don't remember a x4 being usual and now they can go ahead and offer x2.5 or x6.66 or whatever they want.

And why keep them hidden?

I know that is my problem, but i am not the type of guy that ONLY plays one line or one type of tanks, neither will stick to a specific tier, so i find more annoying to constantly tweak and change the filters than to have my tanks set all visible and just scroll to find one.

And i believe that more players may have the same issue with me, so i opened a new topic to see  what the playerbase (or the forumbase to be honest) thinks

I read in other discussion that there is no "new way". It's just that is the first time that a x4 bonus is given and it miss the bonus icon. But may be it's wrong...

Anyway I prefere the old one, easier and faster.

The missing icon is due to the x4 bonus, that is still active today from the weekend. It is the first time we have this bonus and some genius at WG probably forgot to design a proper icon for it. It should be back to normal when we have the regular x2 tomorrow.

 

Edit: damn, not fast enough...

That would depend on the actual code behind the screen.  It was an assumption of mine that the x4 on the pop up screen was a simple text display next to a star bitmap and therefore would not require a change where as the small x4 on the tank icon was itself a bitmap and they didn't want to have a bitmap for all possible values.  Now that was an assumption but it seems to be at least partially correct if what other have said is true.  There is no new way there just was no 'x4star' bitmap image to display over the weekend.

 

Of course this totally destroys my idea that WG were making things more generic to allow for any value of 'daily bonus' in future as it seems the truth of the matter is that they just screwed up and didn't spot the missing x4 bitmap in testing.

These are the sort of things that makes you cry/laugh/kill baby chickens.. How can a millions dollar company like WG just throw out a x4 special and then 'forget' the symbol???

Ironically, while XVM adds really useful filter options- my favourite being Reserve- it removes the daily bonus filter. :facepalm:

 

I hadn't even realised that you could see it with the mouse over the tank. Live and learn.

in my point of view is unthinkable also that a company so big, forgot the bmp image in its 1st ever x4 bonus (or that the programmers team hasn't already managed to find a "magic" way to auto add the number when the management decides that "today is x3 or whetever", and just fill a number that indicates the program what to display....

Actually YOU see the X4 multiplier because of your mods. I bet you have a modpack installed and you updated it.

 

And this is not any kind of ''new way''. It is simple a mistake/fail by WG.

The introduced the ''never seen before X4 for first victory'' but guess what?

There was no X4 image in game files......:facepalm:

Because it has to be made as a graphical element.  While it should take an artist 5 minutes.  I guess this is easier.
