Well, they promised we're gonna be able to paint our tanks how we wanted. Here it is:

This is just a first stage, by the way. Later you'll be able to add 3D elements like logs and etc.

 

Edit: Gold prices are placeholders. Available only for Tier 8+ tanks so far. You'll have an option to turn off these elements if you don't like how they look.

Wow, those tanks look crap like that.  I hope I can turn this off in the settings so I don't have to see other people's 'works of art'.  They need to make a MUCH better system than this!

Fortunately I'm fluent in russian.

 

Seriously, would you think they'd even provide a youtube translation?

 

Oh, and I totally see it coming the full black tank with a pink boomstick, fun times ahead :trollface:

The system in WT was really fun. You were able to place your decals everywhere, rotate them, expand them, shrink them... that left you with a lot of artistic freedom and some of the creations really looked awesome. Spend a lot of time decorating my planes.

But the difference is that you never or only rarely saw those planes close range...

 

Watching tanks sprayed with all kinds of fancy colors all the time... meh. I'd most definitely turn it off.

Wonder if turning it off will result in all of them turned off? Helmets,logs and such would be good to see on tanks but not the colors.

I’m not sure I like this feature. It would be fine if people would actually paint realistic camo, but some players will paint clown camos like pink or anime/pony crap, or [edited]just for trolling. And it seems that WG still refuses to make permanent camo aviable for non-gold buyers…

I am pretty sure we get some crazy stuff yes. Not just anime or My Little Pony, or Disney for that matter, what about Star Trek and idk what else people think of. But to be fair, most of this won't be much crazier than the Patriot and the Liberte which are already in the game. I'm more concerned about the possibility to draw truly offensive stuff on your tank, starting at a pair of boobs but probably worse - there will be players that do that, mark my words. Not everybody plays World of Tanks when sober, after all.

How long until someone makes something that looks like a male chicken? 2 or 3 seconds?

So this is what the game will look like in a month or two...

 

Want a clown Maus? No problem!

 

Want a CGC with a pink d!ck and blue balls? No problem!

 

Want a smurf IS-7? No problem!

 

WG why are you doing this to your own game? Atleast remove these stupid colors, why on earth would anyone paint their tank blue or pink color as camouflage??? The point is to make the tank HARDER to detect, not EASIER. Hell these dumb camos should give -25% camo value just because of the stupid colors...

Are they really spending time on stuff like this? Who is in charge, really? A monkey with a stick?

 

If everything in the game was running/working as it should then ok, but as it is now... this is not what I had hoped for, people must be spending way to much money on this free-to-play game.

so I can finally make my tanks look like something the Chaos would own in W40K? :justwait:


 

that said, it would be nice if they allowed a few options, maybe:


 

1) none (only standard national colours and emblems (what we have now))

2) extra's only (logs, jerry cans, etc.. )

3) everything (silly pink tanks etc..)


 

nice idea in theory, and if it keeps people happy, then its all good for both sides, however, will it actually work as they intend it to? recent chat problems and the absence of a fix yet suggests that it wont, which is a shame that future updates will now be based upon the theory they will break the game...


 

WG, don't mess this up if your going ahead with it, it'll only make that thought worse
