Makes me wonder what they are going to break when they add/rework equipment. But given the amount of new equipment i think a 4th slot wouldn´t be the worst idea.

Sounds like a lotion sold in an "adult" store.

These all look genuinely great. I really hope it means there's some real choices between lots of valid equipment combinations instead of just choosing between Vents/Rammer/Vstab or  Optics/Rammer/Vstab.

They probably sell all the equipment people have for the actual price before they replace them with the new one, just to ensure people don´t make a profit that way.

Have fun wasting credits then. There is no way WG would overlook that. :teethhappy:

The changes generally look quite nice, but I'm not sure about the special bonuses in the first two equipment slots, that vary between tank types and roles.

 

WG want to give the player more viable equipment loadouts, but I feel that this change is counter intuitive, as it heavily encourages you to pick certain types of equipment for specific tanks.

 

Edit: Plus the new type of equipment which can improve your top speed. Basically we'll see EBRs reaching top speeds of around 105 km/h :ohmy:

Well... they could go all in and make equipment only last xy battles, explained with wear and tear so you´d have to repurchase them again and again and again... but that would be EA/Ubisoft level of greed.

because they will convert it to other equipment, you won't lose credits, but you won't gain any either.

Well you only gain 50% of the original value by selling it so idk if you're really earning anything.

Binocs and Camouflage Net only available on TDs?

TDs not able to use coated optics?

 

If you ask me, that will crush a lot of playstyles with certain tanks which do not fit into their category very well.
