A you progress through the game you receive stage awards, medals ribbons and commemorative pins for deeds, etc. Wouldn't it be nice to be able to purchase these for real through the shop and display them in a case on your wall, adding to the awards as you receive them.

 

Stage awards such as Kays Medal etc would have 4 separate versions, say bronze, Silver, Gold & Platinum or something like that. Each stage made available in the shop when received. Battle Heroes available only once, no subsequent purchases available, but maybe a numbered pin available in multiples of 10 up to 500 for display underneath showing number of times awarded.

 

Same with Honorary ranks etc with the pin on the coloured ribbon similar to what is worn on military uniforms with again a multiple of 10 pins to go underneath to show number of awards.

 

I just think that it would be nice to be able to have actual real versions of the in-game awards on your wall. Of course, not to wear as the authorities may not like it, but as a home display for the game it could be nice!

Not for me thanks, I've already got enough gumpf cluttering up my house. 

 

If you want to earn medals to show off with you'll have to do it the old fashioned way & play with real tanks.  Should be plenty of opportunities coming up to earn some shiny metal given the current leadership of the "free world".

Rofl. Agreed.

 

However, I disagree we should promote violence, despite the game we are playing. Humans should seriously consider being nicer creatures - both to each other and the environment.

You are too late for that. You can already buy several ingame awards as physical awards; like this one: High Caliber for 20 euro's Totally not a ripoff.

They get over that in about ten years and then just do that slightly sigh face with a Roger Moore eyebrow.

If they did make this a thing, I think stuff like the mission marathon for the ht no6 would get a bit awkward :v
