Is the style for the Skorpion compatible with the Skorpion G?

 I had skorpion G and changed for free for skorpion after a ticket to wargaming. I don't thing that Skorpion G cammo can be changed.

A way to change Object 252U Defender for regular Object 252U would be really nice now, been waiting to get rid of it for a while since i got it in Christmas boxes, but i am still waiting for my Panzer 58, that i asked to be switched 3 weeks ago... so maybe WG is lacking personnel...

The style can be placed on normal Skorpion. Skorpion G has permanent camo that cannot be modified.

Unfortunately, this exchange will not be possible even this time.

a real shame you can't put the camo on the scorp g and defender... wouldn't have been that hard to enable that?

Noobs, you can buy the paint and keep it, when the option comes to switch the tank to normal one do it and then apply the paint.

The point is that they are different tanks by name. One version was released with a permanent camouflage and one without. Maybe the possibility of remove camo will be someday, but not yet.

Imagine being so lazy, first we should of just got the russian slogan .. it's for a russian tank, let it be.

 

Instead we get these stupid shoulder decorations and they aren't even mirrored on the turret .. it looks so dumb, so low effort:

 

Eu gets:

Ru gets:

For god sake the RU design actually works, this replacement for the EU looks totally out of place..

 

One of the nicest designs when it was posted on the leak sites, to then be greeted with the abomination in the garage :teethhappy: was actually going to buy the defender to have the skin, one of my favourite in its original variant but this? thanks for saving me 40€ i guess :great:

Come on WG, please let us swap Defender for 252U....

You already allowed this for most other tanks with different versions (Skorp, Mutz, GF's, etc.) :sceptic:

Or, at least let us change the Defender's camo -- I bet you could enable this with a simple micro-patch.

 

TY :)

Why would you swap Defender camo for this? Original Defender camo is one of the best in the game. This greenish camo with brooms looks awful. Btw I also like Skorpion G desert style camo much more than this joke of a paint, literally looks like some kid took spray and added a sticker of a scorpion (creature). 

What do you guys think about STRV M/42-57 tank? Do you like it and what is a gameplay style?  :hiding:

I was thinking of buying that swedish medium since I dont have any crew trainers for that nation. Also personal reserves with 50% extra credits come very handy, and this is the only way to get them.

I have been watching this event with some interest. What WG have done in their own inimitable style is made the unique camos that accompany premium tanks such as the Skorpion G, the Defender and the Panzer Mutz into a definite negative, instead of the exclusive customisation they marketed them as. This is a shame if like me your decision making process when buying these tanks incorporated the unique and stylish camo as a plus. Surely in any reasonable scenario the owner of the grand marque of a vehicle type should have access to all the different "lesser" versions. In short, if WG were a reasonable entity with a PR department that did not resemble "Chernobyl" shortly after melt down then they would simply make all the various camo's available to each of the unique vehicles interchangeable. Of course you also would have access to the special unique camo (which nobody else would have access top without purchasing the relevant unique expression of the vehicle) It really should be a no brainer, At first I thought they were picking vehicles with a unique camo style on purpose to get us all to swap them for the plain vanilla version like they did with the Mutz last week and have done on a number of occasions with the Skorpion G. However I no longer believe that as no mechanism has been offered to swap out the defender for the vanilla 252U. Perhaps it is like a few years ago when they obviously pursued a policy of systematically removing preferential matchmaking from the game and had to give up on that as they realised it would not work. Look it makes sense. If we could interchange the styles and camo's on out Defenders and Skorpions Mutz's etc we would jump through all the necessary hoops or expend the necessary cash or effort to procure these alternative styles and camo's and we would also have a unique style unavailable to most others. Currently we are just stuck with the supposed special exclusive style that does not feel very special anymore just somewhat limiting. Sadly the current dynamic is unsatisfactory for both sides. WG miss out because I am not buying gold and anniversary coin packages as I cannot use two of the three camo's in this act and two of them in the last act as well and I miss out as I like camo and styles and would like to be able to employ all of those available like any other player.

Twice the tank, twice the sales.. that's why you can't change anything.

If you purchased the wrong one then you're quite out of luck

Looks at the offers... sees still no Hype 59... :sceptic:

 

... then sees the Defender!  :angry: This supposedly 'OP' tank is now sold freely, while the Type 59 which is regularly bashed on the forums as 'Totally Not OP At All' is still nowhere to be seen... :facepalm:
