Will be nice to add 4th equipment on next update???

 

This would allow better tank personalization depending on the needs of the player.

No it wouldn't.

 

There is already too little variation in what is used, adding another slot would simply mean no more choice between, say optics and vstab, everyone would just have both.

Removing 1 equipment slot instead would actually make things more interesting.
Of course that will never happen either though, would require a fair amount of rebalancing.

Would have been a nice way to balance T10 LTs vs MTs at their introduction though. Instead of nerfing the LTs, remove an equipment slot across the board (all classes) so LTs will probably go optics but have to choose between DPM or gun handling (rammer/vert stab) or even full spotting with optics and vents.

Meanwhile meds would have to choose between being "battle meds" with rammer and vert stab/vents or being slightly worse at fighting but getting optics to be able to fulfill a spotting role when required.

Then LTs and MTs would have been well balanced into different roles. Instead LTs were nerfed into oblivion so they wouldn't be better than MTs at everything in skilled hands.
You could play tanks according to your style rather than go full cookie cutter.

The only interesting thing is to make other equipments really viable.
Same for the skills.

Give all LTs binocs for free fixed in a 4th slot.  Make them active after 2s.

They should give known bad tanks an additional slot to improve thier combat ability. Panthers, Tiger II, crap mid tier french heavies.. etc

Good idea, then I could finally equip a gun rammer on my heavies! Now all slots are taken up by toolbox, cammonet and binos....

A hampster certainly won't.

 

But a hamster might.

 

@OP please keep your brilliant ideas to yourself and your friends, hvala.

That surely would make a hole in my fortune :(

 

To choose equipment and try combos is one of the most interesting part of wot.

For instance I tried optics on my 277 to reach 500m and ... that was totally useless. But I tried.

There's too little variation because once you've put the essentials on there's no room for anything else. If you had an extra slot then suddenly you start to have choices like do you take a spall liner? Maybe improved suspension for better mobility or wet ammorack? Etc.

Exactly. It's about time Wargaming either introduced some other viable options for equipment, or rework those rarely used. I would have imagine they have the data to analyze what equipment is used.

So say you have vents/rammer/vstab on your medium, if you were given an extra slot you would take improved suspension or CO2 filled fuel tanks?  No, you would take optics like everyone else.  Or if you had optics already instead of one of the other three you would take whatever of those three you had done without.

 

Current system forces a choice, an extra slot would allow you to not have to make a choice.

 

A combination of making more equipment useful and reducing the number of slots on some tanks (autoloaders which can't take a rammer for instance) would be interesting.

Only worthwhile after a complete redux of the equipment system imo.

Take a look at WoWP: after the redux there, there's actually choices you can make that aren't wrong.

Currently in WoT, there's pretty much only one single bloody right choice for pretty much any tank.

It would be better to change the equipment itself. Who uses additional grousers ?!

While I agree that the system WoWP uses is nothing short of brilliant, I just can't accept the "Calibration" RNG...it is nice to upgrade equipment, but wasting time and nerves (and resources) on bad luck with calibration is something that IMO is entirely unncessary and could've been avoided.
