So according to this page https://worldoftanks.eu/en/news/general-news/progressive-decals/ Progressive decals will cost gold.

 

Now I personally am not that interested in most of the progressive decals, except for the Ace Tankers.

But I think it's big nonesense to have to pay gold for these decals.

The whole point of these progressive decals is to earn them. Having to spend gold to put them on your tank defeats the entire purpose of earning the decals.

It's like paying gold for your marks of excellence...

 

I'd actually be willing to challenge myself to try and get 8 Ace Tankers on specific vehicles.

But I'm personally not gonna bother with these decals as long as they cost gold.

 

I'm curious to see how the community thinks about it.

I will not actively play for them, and unless the development is open ended, I doubt I'll ever get more than a couple with normal play.

why? it's like gun marks or special camo - no one gives a **** in the actual game.

 

Imagine coming across an enemy with some retarded emblem on his tank showing he has 3 aces - would you runaway?

 

Imagine a freindly tank next to you and you are wondering if they will help you push/hold a line - you see the same emblem - does that alter your decision?

 

no - it's just pointless nonsense WG are releasing that takes nearly zero skill to implement but they feel obliged to push out content to keep the game fresh.

I am pragmatic, all this styles, camos, decals etc mean nothing to me. Some people probably drool over it but it serves no purpose so why bother.

Only reason why i put camo on tanks is cause of the 3% camos bonus, otherwise i would run around with stock painted tanks.

I mean... I might get the one freebee as I understood it. But it's not that many I play that often I suspect I will get most of them on. And those I don't want to ruin with more decals.

 

I don't mind WG doing this. It's something for others to strive for that wants it. But, I find it odd that they are marked as historical... And the real division emblems on my AC 4 are not.

Well, when I see someone with 3 marks on their barrel, I usually am pretty impressed. And I study their gameplay.

Even last night I had a teammate in a T-34-85 with 3 marks, whom I stayed close to, based on the fact that he had 3 marks. We fought pretty brilliantly until the end of the battle.

In the end, it also makes plenty of people feel good to show off their dedication. Even if it's something as unimpressive as clicking the battle button a thousand times. :teethhappy:

I guess to bypass the "don´t show historical" filter, wouldn´t be of much use to release the stuff when those caring about it can´t show off to others.

They're projection decals, so not really. I might add it to a style as an extra small emblem somewhere but it's certainly not something I'll focus on. I don't mind them though, the idea is neat.

The new decals don't appeal to me so not much a problem.

The new styles however look quite cool.

They serve no practical use whatsoever.

It's a meaningless addition.

If the idea is, get 1 for free, buy the other 2 for gold. I won't bother with any of them.

Probably just me but there is an option "don't show gun marks" which i had turned on since the implementation.

I just like the looks without more.

waste of dev resources, they should better focus more on fixing bugs, like the damn trucks you cant shoot through.
