  1. Why can’t we have this in WoT? oh, yeah because the old farts will get triggered by colors and have a seizure.

    1. “Hurr durr World of Tanks is men game we don’t need barbie in it” or something

      I will never understand this kind of complaints really, if they want super realism they should go play WarThunder on Sim difficulty.

      1. Warthunder and Realism KEKW – There are real tank simulator games out there but the audience is quite limited.

    2. Why would you want this shit in WoT? The OP paper panzers are bad enough, they’d need to be lurid colours now as well to keep you happy?

      1. Why would I not want? I am a Transformers fan and you have the option to hide non-historical elements. What’s the problem? I find the 3D skins expensive af and exaggerate. I would much rather get those skins and have a nice tank to look at.

        1. I would have anytime real tank in pink color with bunnies or anime itasha with waifu or transformers or ninja turtles or Barcelona FC or whatever skin you want to put in before more fantasy tanks that on top of that nazi freaks feels entitled to have their fake nazi tier X shit buffed
