Just curious why do you have to have at least one battle in a tank you own before it will show up on the list in your profile,

you would think just owning the tank would be enough.

Because there is no data registered on the server for that tank until it has been driven in battle.

 

Cannot display a winrate because 0 out of 0 cannot be displayed as a percentage... 0/0 is both 100% and 0%...a paradox...

Serb is building a moon base, you'd have thought they could find a way round the divide by zero problem - I dunno, maybe just show zero.

No, I would think why not making a single battle if not showing up on the list bothers you so much?

 

So tell us why you don't want to spent the five minutes to do a battle (heck if you YOLO it you can be back in the garage in less than two minutes)

For what reason would you have a tank listed that has no battles played?

 

For what reason do you own a tank you have not played?

 

For what reason does it bother you at all?

I am doing that at the moment, i just found out that they did not show up always wondered why my numbers didn't match,

so i'm now playing the 12 tanks that are not listed,

was just wondering why they made it that way, like i said its stupid you own the tank so it should be listed.

Because it's stupid if you own it it should be listed.

WOT console did that during beta. So my service record is full of 0 battle low tiers and mid tiers I was handed out. Why would I want that here?

Only reason why this would make sense. Is if you own many collectors tank you never ever will play.  I have the 260, I have the T25 pilot to name a few. Never played either of them. Do I feel they should be on my list? No. You want them there... play em. I don't see the problem. You might think it's stupid. But many think it's equally stupid to add it there to with zero battles in it.

 

If so you might instead suggest a "garage" section on your profile if you want people to look at tanks you never play. As having them on the service record makes no sense.
