"If necessary, her vehicle can cross the bottom of a pool as the turret is fitted with equipment for underwater driving, specifically for this purpose."

 

What kind of compensation do we get if this equipment turns out to be malfunctioning? :sceptic:

We guarantee that everything should work fine. 

If you notice any gear malfunctioning, we recommend putting it in a bowl of rice. :)

It's going to be a tough choice then :) Let us know your final choice in a couple of weeks (or days? :unsure:)

Too bad we can't get both commanders :)

 

But I think I will go for the female commander.

This would require you guys to reintroduce the Pearl River map; better hurry!

I had Dragon Ridge in mind for catering enough supplies of good quality rice but your recommendation is noteworthy as well! ;)

The skins look awful because of the following reasons:

- Patton was already very loaded with decorative elements which looked educated sitting on it, now it looks rubbish because none of those items make sense to what the real patton had equipped on it and they just look like someone went to shopping and refused to buy a shopping bag, besides, the color choice is very numb, it does not inspire anything, the symmetry of the tank is lost within the shape full of a thousand edges plus that surfing board ... it reduces the seriousness factor of the tank which has a very serious reputation in the real life and in the game;

- TVP feels like cheating just because it has new wheels, despite the fact that no other tank ever receives new wheels with a new skin. Same story as to Patton, way too many elements without any sense plus bad color scheme and the hand guns attached on the body look just like some really bad decals, they do not appear to have any mass, plus that no one hangs the gun like that on the tank. That tank has never been constructed, therefore it did not deserve at all to be added in this list for the battle pass, however you could have just made a very cool ultra HD and modern look for the tank by adding the new wheels, some side skirts, some fuel barrels, some storage compartments and giving it a positive color scheme for a tank like a natural shade of green with tree patterns or a desert inspired color.

 

Conclusion: Wargaming, whenever you will design new skins for the tanks, PLEASE PLEASE look at how a real main battle tank looks like and try to get inspired from it, not from a kinder-garden kid. The tanks should feel like they are dominating by having extra layers of ammo, a normal machine-gun, smoke grenades, head lights and convoy lights, maybe some extra range finders or jamming systems, some extra side skirts, some added fuel tanks maybe and MOST IMPORTANTLY make them individual for all 3 seasons. The idea to drive a black or dark colored tank in the snow or in the desert is absurd.

Maybe those who pay for the improved battle pass should get both commanders as a bonus for spending 6500 gold?

When you think about it, they’ve done first season two heavies, this season two mediums. Going by that logic they can go TD, light or arty (please no... :D). So maybe we get to see flipwagen ;):D

Next season will likely feature TD from other nations than previous two. I guessing it will be Foch and Jagpanzer E100

You are absolutely right, but there is no help - someone from kindergarten has become the main designer in the WG company!  :bajan:
