Could this game get more new players if they made the tanks look more cartoonish? They could get some japanese animee style on the tanks! It looks that WG is trying on this with crew skins and decals but I think they should go all the way,

 

I've allso heard that some of their twitch streamers and CC's are cosplaying, so the movement is there?

Well there's that Warhammer KV2 & the recently introduced TL1 complete with drums, I think they look rather good.

So yes why not.

Do we really need another Defender like tank on tier 8 the T32 and IS-6 can't deal with?

Looking at blitz armour layout for the Nameless, looks like a crappy, more rounded Tiger2 armour with bigger cupolas too. An IS-6 can probably eat it alive with some good armour usage.

Blitz model is not the same iirc, as they balance lots of things differently "in a good way". Like their IS-6 that actually has 221 pen. Heck even they did see the Matilda IV's 86 pen as trash and gave it 110 pen.

I don't see why they can't be included as skins, providing that those of us with appropriate settings don't have to see them. I mean, if there are players out there with dayglo pink Shermans  I've, thankfully, not seen them.

I approve.

 

Wasn't there that one Q&A where they said they're negotiating stuff with the creators of Girls und Panzer?

 

I mean, WoWS already partnered with Azur Lane a while ago, you know, that mobile game with shipgirls whose anime series just started airing? It only makes sense for WoT and GuP to collab and give us some content too.

Yes, there was.

But in the mean time you can check out various fan-made Girls und Panzer mods on wgmods.net. :girl:

 

And WoWS has and: Aoki Hagane no Arpeggio, High School Fleet, and now Azur Lane collaborations.

While the defender is vastly superior to the IS-6.  T32 is fine and still a viable option and does not compete with the defender. Defender is a up close brawl heavy, T32 is a support heavy that needs to go hull down.

Oh that's true. And I had no iusses the few games I played the T32 recently going for the cupola close up hull down. But I'm more concenred about Steve in his T32. As he goes brawling in it hull up if you will vs VK's and Defenders.

Blitz got Girls und Panzer on EU even. But again that was a limited deal to that game, and was fairly short lived. WOT Console asked for a Grils und Panzer deal. But turned it down when they only got a deal for Sony's version. As Japanese companies are fairly picky with their linceses.

And that is bull, maybe change tune because unless that thing gets nerfed somehow t8 entry level is far too high. Only WG reps would go as far as to claim Defender being nerfed/balanced.

If cartoon tanks are introduced that is when I start playing arty properly for the first time ever, just to make the experience for them as horrible as cartoon tanks would be for me. :trollface:

No it`s not enough. 4 tracks sounds ridiculous? Two cannons sound silly?!

They should put on soviet tanks a second cannon on the opposite side and when they start shooting, the turret starts spinning.

Personally, I'm all for it!

 

 

But also give people the option to not see the skins, as I understand perfectly that not everyone likes that particular style(I just realised that this is already a thing, pardon me)
