I thought these things were a joke when I saw them. Had to check the calendar to see if it was April fools. I don't complain about very much but this really is a step back.

I like his channel and think his views in this case are representative of the majority of opinions I see here

If nothing else this release of these outcast tanks will be interesting.  If they sell, we can expect to continue to see more of them.

If they don't perhaps this madness will slow down a bit and development efforts will shift off new mercenary tanks to something cooler:unsure:

This is one of the dumbest things I've seen WG do. I HATE these tanks. They look [edited]dumb. If this is the path WoTC is taking then my wallet is closing. [edited]this.

Not interested in this crap. Just sticking to tech tree and hopefully they get the message.

Next thing you know, we'll be able to build our own hills to hide behind or mount so that we can shoot down on the reds.

Well I actually think the Beach Party one looks better than Trinity II. 

 

Now Banana Buster, that is a bit too creamsicle for me, but not completely eye burning. 

 

TANK, though.  That one is over the top for me.  It would be more tolerable without the stop sign and rockets.  

 

But the worst part...seeing Banana Buster in the tank list.  I hope they adjust the names to just Beach and Buster.  B Buster might also be acceptable.    

 

 

 

As I said in another thread, someone at WG is either purposely playing teenage games or is completely oblivious.

 

"Banana Buster", driven by a raged-out French woman.  Yeah.  No innuendo there AT ALL.

 

And, does anyone on their payroll KNOW what  Thunder Bucket really is????

At 20K for a tier VII & 2 tier VIII tanks that is not bad. I wish they were sold separately at the around 7K price (I am not a fan of bundling they hide the one thing you want behind a sort of paywall). As for realistic come-on now really that went out the door with the physics change. Heck this is a game where a steel gun can magically pass through steel tanks & rocks firing the whole time when did this GAME ever have the realism so many suddenly seem to care so much about? When I complained about the new physics & mentioned that with them when I play lights I get motion sicknesses many here in the forums some that have even posted here said just do not play lights so, to them I say simply do not buy them! There is no medals or Achievements that require you to buy them & there is no reason at all to buy them if you do not like them. As an alternative history fan, a fan of post-apocalyptic things like Mad Max & as a huge fan of dystopian SF I like these as well as WS & the whole mercenary concept. I like 90% of what WGCB is doing to keep the game going on console in the face of intense competition on multiple front on console as well as the changing face of console gaming.

 

Any way that is my personal opinion on all this. I hope everyone even if you do not agree with my opinion has a great, fun & safe week.

Unfortunately, it is also a step we all have seen coming and knew would arrive one day. Next comes the advertisers and our tanks begin to look like Nascar vehicles - by the way WG I want M&M's  and Dr. Pepper to be among the first 'sponsors' we can put on our tanks. ANY body who is willing to pay will soon be getting their own tank, like the Rock Band tank from our past. Too late to stop it now.

Lol!!!! I freaking LOVE these tanks. I hope they are contract operable. I will play for all 3

 

If you're serious, then congrats on being a part of the reason this game is dying.

Wg you are making a big mistake. This is not the right way to make people stay . Maybe you get younger player to start . But do you really want to take the risk that your older player to quit?its  a big chance you loose players if this continue.. this is a BIG mistake ..

I was shocked when I looking in the store yesterday ..new tanks ..child tanks ....mercenaries.....

I am beginning to really dislike the direction this game has taken. Can we have our old game back. You know, the one that had real tanks and battlefields based on places where battles actually took place.

This game is becoming complete garbage. We are at the point of no return. Whoever is responsible for this should be straight up demoted. Many of us sunk a ton of cash into this game like a bunch of idiots. I have learned my lesson the hard way but never again.

Retro, this might be the best post I have ever read on WOT forums.  You did not go to far and 100% agree with you about the status of the game.  They were starting to put some momentum together with the new TT lines and then this major launch of comic book tanks.  i wish I could add more to your post but I do not think I could have said it better.

 

Why are some people upset with this move?  Because they care about the game and do not want it to be trashed. Big thumbs up.
