Rant Time: The Clown Camo in WoT…

Thanks to 2goxd for reminding me of this issue.

I’ve been having a lot of pent-up frustration over the last few days over something that I’m working on. Hopefully, I can alleviate the frustration via this post.

So lets go on shall we? One thing I absolutely despise in WoT are all the goofy, fake camouflages applied onto the recent premiums in World of Tanks. Most of them are an eye-sore in my opinion and I know I am not the only one who holds these views.

That is why I advise to War Gaming to add a feature so we can disable these camouflages in our battles. Just so we are clear, I am not for the removal of clown camouflages (I made the sentence in bold because I know there will be the one or two people who won’t bother to read the passages clearly). I understand that there are people who enjoy these camouflages; nothing wrong with that at all. However, according to 2goxd and Damplar’s polls on the WoT EU forums, most people prefer to buy premiums without the camouflages. It has made people avoid these vehicles thus a loss in profit for War Gaming.

These are the steps War Gaming should follow…

  1. Make WG EU sell the non-clown camo version of the premiums as an option.
  2. Implement a system in the settings where you can pick and choose which tank you would like to disable the camouflage on. There are people like me who like historical camouflages on certain tanks such as the Cromwell B and M46 KR, but I understand if some people do not. This has been done in World of Warships with the anime ships.
  3. Implement more realistic, unique, and historical camouflages since many people enjoy it as well as the clown camouflaged tanks.

So how can we make this happen?

I would send a message to WG customer support until they start to notice the recent influx of messages relating to this subject if you want to see a change. Posting on the forums is also great.
