WoT 9.21 – Tank personalization 1.0

The first details of so-called “personalization 1.0” have been announced.

  • New feature – Customization 1.0 (2D), which allows players to do their own camouflage to their tanks. (The “Customization 2.0” will most likely feature 3D objects)
  • Interface changed in the “Appearance” tab: added subcategories like effects and paint
  • You can paint 5 elements of the tank: turret, gun, hull, mantlet and suspension
  • The custom skin will increase camouflage of the tank
  • It will be possible to buy camouflage for certain amount of limited time like current camo schemes
  • Yes, it is possible to paint tanks in pink!
  • Added an effect option, “aging effect”
  • In first tests, tier VIII – X vehicles can be painted in custom camouflages
  • Like promised, there will be option to disable “non-historical” skins, also including things like “Liberte” skin of the AMX M4 49.
  • Each custom paint scheme will be clearly signed as either non-historical or historical
  • It is possible to scale camouflage (increase or decrease)
  • This feature is scheduled to arrive in December with patch 9.21

        I’m thinking that he’s referring to that… Which is invalid since any standard camo you can purchase would also be pay too win then… SO yes, he didn’t think his comment through very far

        and
        “It is possible to scale camouflage (increase or decrease)”

        it is not pay to win per se but if you can stack camo 5 times and it surpasses the normal camo schemes then i would call that a bit fishy (remember the fuckup with the stats changing emblems and inscriptions of Rubicon? I dont want that again!)

        Btw get that sand out of your vagina. no need to be rude here dude.

        1. As long as it doesn’t increase your camo values over the regular camos it isn’t more pay to win than the camos already avaiable.

          Scaling camouflge means that you can change the size of the repeating pattern…

        2. Yeah, lets add camo that push the E25 and Swedish TD’s to past 100… No I highly doubt that it means that. As indicated by the image, you can scale.. or stretch the camo paint to increase the size and pattern, not the camo value. It would be silly to keep the 200 gold price if you could keep it at 3% or 12%. And sure you can stack camo schemes. But I doubt the Maus will have more then 3%. As going by the image, and the tooltip on the IS-7 turret. I suspect they mean a base paint “blue” and camo etc on top of it for patterns. Nothing else. I doubt he will get the 3% bonus for each layer of paint added. As it cost 50 gold per layer. And you can paint each part of the tank. I doubt the turret will have 12% and the hull 3% on the Maus.

    1. WG has always had problems with prioritizing their time. This game has existed so many yeas, and still we don’t even have a marathon shop in the client so that players actually can exchange marathon currency into rewards instead of getting some crap tank. I fully agree with you and all I can say is that WG just keeps disappointing me more and more each month.

    2. Oh you underestimate the players. They will make more money on this on patch day then they did on garage slots the past few months. There are always someone willing to spend on this vs anything else. Even more of a waste if only 5 of the 29 other players can see it. As they have it off in the settings.

    1. I agree, but not only colors, also realstic patterns. Or soon we will see silly crap like green ladybird camo and black hearts… They could have made it like a customization menu where players can pick pre-set colors and mix it with pre-set patterns, instead of making it silly with free-hand paining. Sounds almost like kindergarten, “hello kids today we’re going to color our tanks!”, “oh wow, I’ll paint a dick, Moma looooooook!!!” :|

  2. I’m not sure I like this feature. It would be fine if people would actually paint realistic camo, but some players will paint clown camos like pink or anime/pony crap. And it seems that WG still refuses to make permanent camo unaviable for non-gold buyers…

      1. The sad part is that if you disable it, you’ll also not see the custom camouflages that players actually put effort in to make look realistic :/

          1. I don’t mean the built in camos that WG did, I’m talking about the player made custom camos that look realistic. How do you want WG to separate those 2 unless they sit down and manually decide for all tanks on all accounts? If you disable custom camos, you’ll disable ALL of the custom camos, not just the silly ones.

            1. The collour will have have a value assigned to it. So pink could have “unhistorical” assigned to it which means any tank that has that colour on wont have the camo shown if you have unhistorical disabled.

              Where browns and greens would be classed as historical and would still be shown if unhistorical is camo is disabled.

              WG dont have to do any manual work of going through camo, its all coded into it

              1. If you read the source it says that Americans used pink camo historically. So if you make brown and green historical there will also be pink and blue for example.

    1. well, then just deactivate the “nonhistorical” camos. job done.

      what will be interesting: how will they decide which camo is “historical” and which isn’t?

      but all in all: As you have options, it’s a win-win, IMHO. What I am looking far more forward to is the stuff with 3D-parts. this sounds really interesting and hopefully WG wont break it by adding pay2win-stuff (extra armor and so on).

      1. I guess the most simple solution would be that you can just change the historical camo that is already in the game.
        Stuff like how big the pattern is and so on.
        Otherwise they would need to aprove every single camo and that would be pretty much work.

      2. It would be fine if they allowed us to mount additional armor/track plates that gives the tank a bonus, for instance:
        +20 mm spaced armor and -5% top speed and -5% p/w ratio.
        But then they need to make these customizations permanently aviable for credits, or only gainable in events. Looking at the camouflages, where they insist that only gold buyers should be allowed to have permanent camo, it seems WG simply refuses to do this.

    1. How so? If you are referring to more camo bonuses. Then no.. It won’t give the Maus more then 3%.. regardless of many many layers and how far you stretch it. It’s been confirmed by WG today. As half the comment section on every video about it thought you could get the Maus to 12%.

      Like

    1. why do they fuck up with this? you can either use standard camo (which gives the bonus) or your custom camo (with the same bonus) – but not both at the same time! so absolutly no P2W in my eyes.

    2. It won’t. It’s just translated in such a way that everyone thinks so. Camo is not permanent. Nor will it give the Maus more then 3%. It’s just their way of confirming that this “clown” camo gives 3% to, not nothing since it’s pink.

  3. I would love to edit some of the current camos (like the german ones, so glad I got the ones of the campaign…) because the patterns look pretty cool, but the colors… same for the chinese.

    But this? I never had a problem with “not historical” correct stuff. But this is pretty ridiculous. Only “camo colors” would be completely fine imo. I mean, I always like every kind of personalization, but it should fit the game in a way.

    But okay, let’s see even more strange camos like on the patriot and stuff.
    Maybe Ill make one tank in skin color and only the gun pink, I will then have a dick tank.

      1. Well if you want the game banned in most part of the world. Then sure. As even COD had to remove or rework their game to make it to even Germany in the past. Some part of the world are still not a fan of it.

        1. Personally I find that very silly. Movies are allowed to show proper historical content such as swastikas , but games are not. I don’t get it why they can’t just put a “Display Historical Flags and Icons” setting in the game… Then it would be easy for players to decide for themselves and if Germany wants to have silly laws about their own history then they can change it so that this setting must be turned off instead of forcing other countries to have unhistorical content. The game devs can even make this setting “locked” for German players if it’s so important.

  4. So good to see some authentic tank colours to choose from. Hopefully they will be visible with the “historical-only” checked.
    Nice addition after all, it will bring some visual variety.

  5. I dont get why everyone is bitching around, WG gives everyone finally the options to design the looks of their Favourite tank, and everyone hates it.

    If anyone here did research, the camo gives the same bonus as the current camo, nothing Pay to win.

    And the colors are sorted into Historical and unhistorical, so you dont have to see neon green or Pink tanks if you dont want to.

    In my Opinion, a great Step by WG.

    1. 1. It’s not more P2W, but it’s still (slightly) P2W. They need to make permanent ammo either avialble for credits, bonds or earnable in some other way to remove the P2W aspect.
      2. Even if the colors are sorted into historical/unhistorical, it will still look very weird with a tank that has military-green hull + turret and then military-yellow gun + mantlet.

        1. No, because just because you want to color your tank like an autist, everyone else should be forced to see it ingame aswell. Great thinking, not ignorant at all. Fuck off.

  6. I wish there would be setting to “disable” camo similar way as WoT Blitz does, you still see camo in your garage and get bonus, when disabled.

  7. “Customization 2.0” will most likely be abused to a certain point, but I see it mainly used to cover up weakspots like cupolas.

    And I’m getting memories from a game I’ve played ten years ago where you can paint your vehicles [and of course, various tanks] anyway you wanted.

  8. They waited till the last minute to tell us about this feature coming in the NEXT UPDATE. Am I the only one here who notices that changes that end up being a horrible idea in practice are usually announced at the last second before being included so there’s not much time to seriously analyze them and the impact they’ll have on the game?

  9. I sure hope they give us the rotten red color, even in unhistorical. It would be great for prototype tanks like VK 45.03, T-150, Skorpion G and so on, since it was used by the mostly everyone as a base prototype color. It would also look nice on a Maus/E100. I would insta coat all my premium/regular prototype WW II tanks in that. Also the Dunkelgelb would be nice for a base hostorical german color.
