Please give us the option to TURN OFF events we do not like.

If you like football or whatever it is... good for you, some of us don't.

Having this garage for months in a row is just tiresome and gets on my nerves

 

The RocketLeague clone isn't even good!

 

- waaaay to slow

- way to less impact on ball or enemy tanks (a hit sometimes bounces it... other times the ball doesn't move a meter)

- the controls are JACK crap : sluggish and whatnot. THIS IS SUPPOSED TO BE FOOTBALL! Agile, flexible, adrenaline loaded! Throwing exhausted summo ringers in there aint fun!

 

Nobody programming EVER did play RL (or football IRL) ... they saw 1 screenshot and said "leave it to the intern, to program this one"

and thats the story of this mode.

 

Get us back that race mode or something. Please!

The lego tanks or whatnot... and*edited*

That again contradicts the first thing you said. As not everyone would be interested in those events either. As even seeing the tanks in the garage is enough for most to be triggered as we see after an event is over and they are still there. 

 

That said, I don't see why it's so complicated for WG to copy the dock system WOWS has. They have every dock from even past events on their list. If you want to keep the Dunkirk dock, you can even tho the event ended a year ago. Or you don't like the event garage like the space one and just want back to New York or Hawaii? Just one click away. 

 

Vs having to go to your res folder and rename the event hangars to copy the forest one over it.

There was a thread about this ages ago. I hated the football stadium too and it turns out there was safe alternative options in the official WoT MOD site. I downloaded the "Minimalistic" spotlight type of hanger and just love it. You are shown just the tanks which are under a spotlight that can be adjusted for brightness(the spotlight). It's a nice clean, *edited* hanger and because there's nothing fancy with it, there's no real demand on your pc between battles in terms of graphics.

and your garage will look something like this. You still have to put up with the Bufoon *edited*, whats his name? Who cares..

Not a rocket league clone when WoT has had this football mode for years.

First football mode was in 2014 iirc in Himmelsdorf stadium, then again in 2016 and now this [edited]in 2018.

Rocket League is from 2015, so one could argue, *it* is the clone to this gamemode.

 

Also, the Girls und Panzer hangar replaces the ugly football one:

Although obviously, it isn't everybody's preference.

Spoiler

Well... tbh any garage mod does that if that garage is not your preference. Or make a copy of the forest garage and giving it the name of the football file if you want the vanilla more.

I'd certainly like to get those garbage tanks out of my garage. The mode is an absolute crock and messes up my carousel.*edited*

I had to laugh at this at least a bit, especially having watched the games of this world cup...

  That reminds me of the hangers we kept our 432's in while in Germany.

What baffles me is that the artwork for the football garage is clearly aimed at six year olds, but somewhere WG says the game is for thirteen years plus, and I'm sure most players will be above eighteen anyway, so why the childish graphics in the first place?

When I used mods, this minimalistic Hanger (by Hell)(?) was a close joint favourite with session stats :)
