Read up on how we're changing vehicle customization.

The full text of the news item

 

Public Test Feedback Topic

 

What will happen with my old camouflage, emblems and inscriptions?

You keep them

What will be with customization for tanks similar to Defender, Patriot?

Customization remains unavailable for these tanks

Camouflage is 1 item?

A camouflage set for 1 season is 3 parts. You can apply 3 parts, not necessarily from the same set

Will there be any new bonuses with customization?

No, bonus remain the same

How many parts of camouflage can I apply on turretless tank?

For these tanks you can apply only 2 parts to cover whole tank

To get disguise bonus I need to apply all 3 parts?

No, 1 hull part will be enough

Did disguise bonus change with new customization?

No, it will remain the same

How often are you going to produce new styles?

It will depends on many factors, but we have plans to produce many styles during next year

Monotone camouflages, can I somehow modify them?

Yes, players will be able to change scale of spots in camouflage. Changing base color will change how camouflage looks

Will you introduce new customization for other tiers?

We will work on customization for tier 6-9 during 2018

Can I create my style, save it and after apply to other tanks?

Currently it is not available, but we will consider it in the future

If I will apply 1 emblem to all seasons, I will pay for 1 only?

No, each emblem has price for an item. If you buy 1 item, you can only apply it once

Will I be able to zoom in to an customization element to see details?

Yes, it will be possible

I purchased and applied effect, but nothing happened?

It could be an issue for low graphics settings, so then you will see notification. Change graphics settings to check how effect looks

I did apply customization, but my friends do not see it?

By default checkbox with do not show me non-historical elements is checked. Uncheck it to make it visible

Checkbox is checked. My customization items are historically accurate, why are they not visible?  

If at least 1 item in your applied is not historical, then all customization will not be visible

How I will know which customization element is historical and which is not?

There will be icon and extra information in item description

Can I edit the purchased style?

No, it is not possible

What type of customization will be available for tanks tier 1-9, without tier 8 premium tanks?

camouflages

emblems and inscriptions

rent style

Before update 9.21 I rent camouflage for 7 or 30 days, what will happen?

We will compensate remaining days

What is the difference between camouflage and rent style?

Rent style gives full camouflage for all seasons

Could I sell the remaining battles in my rent style or sell part of the style?

No

Can I apply style for gold on all tiers, similar to rent style?

No, it will be available only for tier 8 premium tanks and tier 10 tanks

What will happen if I remove paint from the tank?

Paint will move to storage

What is the difference between historical accurate and non-historical paint?

You can apply can with non-historical paint to any season, color the same. Historical paint related to an season

This seems to be a good thing.... A way to monetize your free to play game, without impacting in-game performance.... Good job!

Let me guess, each customization will cost between 100 and 200gold if we want that permanent or if we don't want permanent we pay with credits (10-20k for 7 days for example)?

Do we get the option to disable their garish camouflages applied to tanks in our client or not?

 

It's bad enough that we have these eye-bleeding Liberte/Patriot abominations but I don't want to see hot-pink Mice and Type 5's drive around.

Checking out some of the answers so far ... seems like there are people who actually enjoy paying more in order to be "loved".
I seriously doubt this will be any good for the player base, WG wallet on the other hand lol ........
Aww well we have seen this b4 haven't we.
(Btw , keep the free to play crap to yourself you know it isn't true)

Good questions, WIll owners for any variation of black tanks receive anything special? Seeing how these already controversial tanks, now will have nothing different about them.

 

 

Anyway, Good job on this, looking forward to it! Ill finally be able to have my Maus Black Edition ;)

As noted above, the fact the schemes will initially only be available on tier 13 premiums is of more interest to me than this whole announcement....

 

....I'd have preferred that they simply add a second set of locations for emblems on all tanks, so that I can carry my national flag and another symbol on each side of the tank.

Or let us have the ability to physically drag them to where we want, But that may be added later, dont forget this is sort of a sneak peak and everything is subject to change,

 

And i assume tier XIII premiums was a typo, probably meaning tier VIII, and accidentally hit the X, there isn't even a tier XIII

Can I apply this to my Scorpion TD?

 

The "Custom camouflage" has no value at all and apart from desert maps stands out a mile! This tank, despite its official rated camo rating is spotted so easily because the custom camo has no hide value and when I fire no matter where I am it obviously shows up on enemy map. Also it's ridiculously low survival value doesn't help. A camo with an active rating and a higher survival rating (after all it is a Panther/ Panther II chassis) would bring this up IMHO to other tier 8 TD's and although it has a tough hit it just needs to be a bit more sturdier and an active camo skin option!

It would be nice if all the custom skin tanks like Liberte, Defender, Patriot, Skorpion had the option to disable and enable that skin when wanted in the customization menu,

I'll surely skip this if it requires gold to have them. As most of the other "customization" thingies do.

I understand WG is a business but didn't you guys already made enough money with these totally OP new era premiums?

Nice idea and long overdue. I have no issue with this form of monetisation at all, its entirely voluntary and not giving any more advantage to the user than ordinary camo (I hope).

 

Now WG, why cant I have the Welsh flag available to use on my tanks. I can purchase the UJ of course, but the standard UK tech tree flag appears a bit English!

There will be option to disable these as well as disabling the unhistorical clown skins of Liberte/Paytriot.

You should have said you have plans for something like this before you asked us to vote for the golden joystick thing.. may have actually done so.. but oh wait you won it so does not matter but anyway. Cool stuff! 

 

Edit: Apparently they had told it somewhere but I missed it.

Looks cool. Way to be unique indeed. Altough I would wait with releasing this new system until we have these camo's available for all tanks above tier V (starting at tier VI) because there real grind starts. Many players don't have tier X (or they chosed not to play them) or  they don't have tier VIII prems. It would be fair I think.

 

I believe this will be available for credits and gold. It would be silly to implement this custom changes only for gold because we already have an option for prem ammo/consumables to buy with both- credits and gold.

 

For me, this is a nice change that should have been implemented a while ago. Hope that HD maps while come soon. Then they can start to rebalance some old tanks instead of printing new vehicles that make older ones obsolete.
