Food needs to be reworked to more closely simulate how it would impact combat in reality, here are my suggestions:

 

British Tea and Pudding is clearly the best food on offer and as such it should provide a 15% bonus as opposed to the normal 10%. This does however come with a 20% chance that the tank crew miss the first 1 minute of the game discussing the weather while sipping their tea.

 

American Cola causes tooth decay. Radio man gets -10% due to toothache and consumable is twice as expensive taking into account dental bills.

 

German Chocolate is fattening and causes sugar rush. 25% of the time your commander is too obese to get through the hatch. Starts with 20% bonus but in the second half of the game the crew's energy crashes causing a -5% penalty.

 

French Strong Coffee kept the crew up last night discussing Sartre and the intricacies of French art house cinema. Everyone is wired. Gunner has 10% chance per min to take a shot at nearest tank, friend or foe. 10% chance driver will decide he misses the Effiel Tower and heads towards the map boundry for 10 seconds before the commander slaps him to his senses. All penalties negated by playing on the Paris map.

 

Japanese Onigiri. 10% chance of food poisoning from eating raw fish.

 

Czech Buchty. Looks like a fairly nice pastry. Bit dry though so -5% commander penalty who gets crumbs stuck in his throat. If theres an American tank on your team, you can swap a bit of Buchty for some Cola and negate the penalty.

 

Soviet Extra combat rations. Extra terrible food doesnt help at all. Whats more theres a 10% chance a bottle of vodka was included, tank gets progressively more uncoordinated throughout battle.

 

Swedish Coffee and cinnamon buns. Gives 15% bonus on Winter maps with the downside that if you get within 30m of water the whole crew stops for 1 min to go ice bathing.

 

Chinese improved combat rations. Includes battered Pork balls and Prawn crackers. +15% bonus but half the time the take-away delivery guy gets lost so the bonus doesnt arrive until half way through the battle.

 

Note to WG: See! a bit of diligent scientific research and careful thought and it is possible to come up with solid improvements to the game.

On a serious note, undo the effects on view range.

I'm glad someone is doing the research on the important things, but you forgot spaghetti with meat sauce. Also furthermore we know what British people are like when they don't get their tea, so if you use it once their will be a mutiny and the crew will refuse to go into battle without tea again.

Don't be knocking WG's magic consumables now. The idea that eating some ethnic foodstuff will make you see further, and make your gun - your gun - more accurate, is perfectly reasonable, and not at all pay to win.

Thanks for laughs! :)  :great: 

May I suggest you add a sub-title (funny)? Without it and WRT to playerbases' obvious intellectual level, someone could take this seriously. :sceptic:

I resent everybody who's implying this is some kind of cheap gag and not the most revolutionary proposal since the implementation of hot swedish female crew members.

Just the radio operator? Well, I don't even waste a med kit on him unless it's late game and I can't see what happens on the other side of the map. It's worth the risk. Heck I'll bring 2 cases.

Results in diabetes, can no longer use Cola. Special healthy food is only available now, it gives +5% but the crew never enjoy eating again.

Someone really needs to update the WoT wiki page.

I think this is the perfect thread to sneak in my old joke about the German special consumable Beer and Schnapps

 

 

And before anyone asks: no that consumable never existed (in-game, what you have in stock before the screen is your own business )
