Don't forget, you have the opportunity to get unique 3D styles from Large Boxes for five Tier X vehicles: four tanks and one SPG!

I love the STB-1 style, will definitely get this with top of the tree in January!  :)

 

There is a problem with the Maus style, the AA canon on top of the turret is so tall it really obstructs 3rd person view and makes brawling in close quarters difficult. I think this should be taken into consideration when designing future 3D styles.

Loot boxes are not an option to buy in my country.

Can WG give us an alternative ?

Having money left in the wallet after Christmas is the alternative! :teethhappy:

I think the 5A‘s dragon is ugly, and the stupid dragon from the Qing Dynasty makes me feel sick

We need those flamethrowers and AA cannons working. ( let the ebr hunt begin with those cannons)

And enjoying to cook other tanks with that dual flamethrower.

3D STYLES ARE AT BEST A TEMPORARY MEASURE. Sorry for all caps...

They are arguably fun, etc., but if everyone is driving around in the identical random arrangement of netting, surfboards, viking paraphernalia, etc., it looks cheesy as and unsustainable as the game tries to achieve greater realism.

IMO the target should be to provide stock tanks as absolutely pristine models -- no dings, no bent fenders, no emblems -- and let the players customise the exterior using an increasingly sophisticated system of individual elements. Do I want to add a bustle? Yes. Do I want to put an SMG, a bicycle and a crate of beer in there? Give me the option. Some of these options could be free to play, others bought with gold or won in events as at present. 

While I'm near the subject, if I have a camo net in my load out, let it magically appear on the tank when it engages, just like the track magically repairs.

But as for 3D styles... they are a dead end, especially as they become more outrageous and fantastical. Give players the option of creating their own, unique outrageous and fantastical exteriors.

Anyway I can't have any of them because they're only available into the boxes.

Sell them in the shop and do way more of them... Like 4 to 5 for each tier 10 at least... You'll make loads of money...

WG, these styles may well be great to many players, I don't care for them personally, but for pity's sake can you not allow us that get these things and do not want to use them at least sell them or swap for a universal camo?

 

I have 14 of them from the last 2 years of loot boxes. I cannot use some of them as I don't have or want to get what they fit, and some of them as I don't like them. I didn't buy any boxes this year and one of the main reasons is that these things are in as the item of value, how can they be of value to someone who don't like them, or cannot use them? 

 

The fact is that they are of no value if you do not like them, or dont have the specific vehicle they fit. But for some inexplicable reason you wont allow them to be redeemed! Why not?

Amen. Let us sell all the rewards we don't want and that are just cluttering up the garage.

So right. I have so many "styles" decals & emblems that I will NEVER use. Let us get rid of them, even if they cannot be sold. Let us be able to delete them, not rocket science is it?
