I watched a wargaming video about tanks... There the presenter talked a bout "shitty" manual gearboxes on some russian tanks!, and I thought it would be fun to have a premium tank with it, It could function like you pushed between for example four different keys and it would be totally random if you got into the correct gear and stalled the engine etc. It would be a new emersion into the gameplay.

 

Anyone else that would like this fuction/premium tank?

So the tank you paid actual money for is going to introduce even more RNG into your battles and will be even more useless when RNG is not in your favour. Yeah, I can see such a vehicle being super popular.

Followed by a tank that randomly enables inverted mouse option.

The only way I could see that being useful is if it had Low Range which would enable one to push allies up hills more effectively, and High Range for when speed is of the essence.

Arbitrary is not immersion.  Given people cannot understand that RNG is balanced between positive and negative.  How do you assume people will cope with their tank stalling because of a keypress?

I stopped playing WoWS because the majority of the player base simply cannot understand it's game mechanics, don't make Tanks anymore complex....

Sounds more like an idea for Wart Hunder.

WoT is too arcade for things like that.

What?  You don't mean a tank that had a standard speed, but if you want it to go really fast you have to press a key (say 'X;) to engage "Turbo" mode ?

 

No, that would never catch on.

OP's version increases the fun by adding an RNG element to it that is neutral in the best case scenario however.

You can play some car simulator for that. Doesn't sound like stuff for arcade shooter game.

Ok. And then we'd need fuel so that you can run out if you drive too much or get shot in the tank.

Also the repairs for tracks would take the whole battle, other module damage would be permanent.

I'd play a mode like that for 1 week as an event and that's it!

And people wonder how WG manages to make millions even though they pull all sorts of crap on people. The answer is literally staring right into your eyes. 
You can keep on dreaming about having a balanced game while we have players who want stuff like this. Scary part, there's thousands of them.

Think of the average person. Half of humanity is more stupid than that. Yeah...

I hope you're just trolling. This thread isn't even about balance. Are you having a laugh or are you trying to whine about WG in every corner of the forum even it's off topic?

And perhaps a variable where using any of the food consumables has the crew bailing out of the tank for five minutes because one of them did an evil fart. 

 

Just because you can do something it doesn't mean you should do it, a fairly good rule in life.
