As the poll asks, would you like this feature as an option?
Personally, I'd love this and honestly, I wouldn't even care about the newest tanks having their original HD textures (maybe lower the resolution a bit) cause I've recently been missing the old stuff as of late cause, you know, nostalgia and they still have the textures and sounds so it feels like it could work to implement.

For me, in the worst case scenario, they could mix the old textures with new textures that doesn't have an already old version and just lower the resolution a bit.
Just personally think it would be cool to play wot for a while with the classic visuals & sounds now and then.

As for the sounds, there are plenty of mods that bring back the nostalgic atmosphere. I'm not sure if there are any for the graphics tho, but lowering the settings should at least bring back a somewhat similar feeling.

I dont need the old Graphics but i miss the "old" Maps... Erlenberg was waaaay better before 1.0 to Name just one.

I cant figure out how to play many of the "new" Maps, the rework was a big F*ck up for me. 

I lost 5%wr and 700wn8 in my recent stats since then :(

Yeah I've tried this, it semi-works. Played at the lowest of settings with my T-50-2 in the "classic" style but you can still, even then, notice the graphics looks somewhat better, the tank textures are enterily different lighter shadows and stuff instead of the old dark shadows and that on the tanks.

That's the best you can get with the new engine. Only thing you can do is hope for the Classic (0.7.0) client to make its' return, as it did during the previous April's fools.

I certainly don't want a return to the old graphics, but the old sounds were much better, the anaemic clunky/pingy sort of sound when you're in sniper view is horrid :)

Well, Classic server was fun. And I suspect it will appear again next year going by the video we did see last week "what version? Who knows". But that was short fun. And it did not sound well or look well tbh. I'm sure people would love to see it as an option. But... I would never use it tbh. The only old sound that was good, was for 150mm guns or bigger. They did feel big. Anything less did feel smaller. Tho not as bad as the 9.x sound rework they did where 88's sounded like a 9mm.

I'm amazed that so many liked the old version better. They both suck. But the old was just camping the 2 or 9 line hill with 10+ guns, a scout in town. And then you waited for either north to be flanked, or one team to push and die the middle. The average match on it was 12 min. Yes there are the tree line camping spots now. But at least you can drive around those and still force them out somewhat safer vs pushing past town on the old map.

I'm not saying the pyschics system itself is supposed to be changed and all that, only the visual stuff like the textures and sounds as an option which is enterily possible, regardless of what engine they are using.
That's the thing, the textures and sounds still exist and from what I know the tanks haven't morphed into a different shape, only the textures have changed, so it's enterily possible to just slap on the old textures, at least on the tanks.

The thing is I'm not saying it should replace the current stuff, oh god no. But only have it as an option in the settings for those who would like to play with the old visuals to fullfill their nostalgia now & then.:)

Yeah, I can buy what you're saying - we were told when the new sounds came in that it wasn't possible to go back to the old sounds, so an option wasn't possible, but if you can install a mod to enable them I don't see what's so impossible

Recently WG announced, they will create again  nostalgia WoT sometimes in 2020 for a few weeks.

You know the original (low polygon count) tank models, original textures. original (non-existing) physics, original game balance. etc, etc.

So just wait a few months and you can enjoy the retro WoT.

Cause it's sadly from what I know not possible to mod ground textures and such and even if it was, no one has made it
