Apparently, some of your employees have been taking my tanks out for some joyrides.  I try to keep them garaged and when I take them out and they do get damaged, I pay a lot of good silver to keep them in tip-top shape.  As you can imagine, this is sometimes quite expensive in silver. 

 

My repair crews assure me that they have fixed everything and the tanks work fine, but they look too worn with all the fender benders the WG employees are apparently putting in the tanks on their joy rides.  I just had a tank repaired and I look at it and the fender is bent.  I would be willing to pay my crews to hammer these out, but they said something something union, something something contract, something something break.

 

Seriously though, the fender benders don't look that good.

Spoiler

  

Things getting bent up in the midst of battle is cool, but can I have a tank in the garage and the beginning of battle that doesn't look like it just finished a demolition derby?  And I am not saying no wear and tear.  The ISU-152 has good looking wear as does the back of the KV-4 (but not the front with that big dent).  Some of these tanks look like their frame is bent (looking at you Type T-34). 

 

Spoiler

 

It seems all the high tier Americans have bent fenders now, which they did not use to have.

 

Spoiler

 

I have more pics saved here if you want them, but I am pretty sure you know what the tanks look like.

 

So while I do appreciate the art department's hard work to make the tanks look very realistic.  If you could ask them to tone down the non-battle joyriding and fender bending, I would love it.  If you added in-battle-damage, that would be great too.  Many Thanks!

These are war machines, not garage queens.

 

;)

 

Although, seeing post match battle scars, while in the garage, before a repair, would be cool.

If this is a serious question, here's a hint. Did you switch off auto-repair? Did you go into battle on low funds, have a crappy game (happens to all of us), not make enough to cover repairs and/or restock? If so, just run another low tier tank for a couple games then go back and repair your dead tank.

Yes but they are not war junk, and some of these are just a bit too much.  I don't know what size monitor/TV you have but on my 60 inch it just looks bad and I have to wonder if WG looks at these on different sized screens.

Spoiler

 

I think the Pattons look particularly bad (as well as most of the decking above the tread on American high tier tanks), as well as the Sherman III. 

Spoiler

 

Spoiler

 

And then there are these which are their own special kind of messed up:

Spoiler
Spoiler

 

I am not saying eliminate wear and tear and give me only pristine factory edition tanks.  Just tone done the bumper cars some or have it as part of in game action only.  Ram a tank and your fenders get bent--But after the battle the dents are hammered out (some deviation but not major crunches).  Some of these don't even look drivable.

I have never noticed this before. How I feel you managed to see them and get these screenshots.

Not really hard to see on a bigger screen, and if most forumers only see them on their phones or laptops, they probably won't get the full effect.  I admittedly "enhanced" on the last two to eliminate distractions/help others know which part I was pointing out, but also because they are on smaller tanks.  But they are pretty noticeable without "enhancing." 

 

In general these are on tanks that I have not been grinding at the moment, and as you can see from the lack of camo on most, I don't take out often.  I didn't really start to look at most of these until update 3.0 with the change to the T71, which also has messed up fenders.  Though I have mentioned the messed up fenders on the E4 previously in posts in other's threads.

 

Again, I don't mind wear and tear, but the major bends in the fenders and decking are a bit much for me.  I really didn't mention the lighting that shows through the fender as at least that is uniform across all the tanks and likely a design constraint.  The art crew really does do a fantastic job, but just as crooked wigglely bits or high tier TDs or arty bother some, this bothers me.

I don't think you can switch off auto-repair? At least as far as I know

Meanwhile I'm here still wondering why you have binocs on an AMX 50 100... Is there something I should know? :hiding:

 

 

Edit: funky crew skills on that 50 100 too.

I like binoculars on my heavies for sniping.  I do have sniper medals in about 10% of the games.​  :trollface:

 

Seriously, though the binos give me a bit more flexibility given its armor. 

 

I am not sure you are seeing all of the crew skills.  Those are the 5th, 6th, and 7th (training) skills.  The first five are pretty standard: Sixth Sense, BIA, Camo (sniping again), Mentor and Repairs.  Keep in mind that I have not permanently camo'd this tank, have not 100% decided to keep it, and may move the crew that was trained on other machines.  I like mentor because I will train all my crews to the 25th skill.

Tanks are warmachines - they do not have to look pretty as long as they get the job done...

 

....but then again... this would be nice for a future update: besides of custom paint/camo or emblems, a player can change how his tank looks: brand new, "a little dented" and ricochets marks here and there or alot of battle scars - a bit similar to what you can see on the Krafts' Panther.:)
