I used to love customizing my crews so that they could speak the language of the tank that they were on. (i.e. all German tanks speak German, all Russian tanks speak Russian, ect.) But ever since the update a while back that removed the customize feature all new crews are the American voice over. Can we bring this feature back an add the option to change 3D crews back to 2D? I love the bonuses that come from the hero crew from the season pass but I just want to look at the tank on the winners circle screen. I play this game for the tanks, not the commander who is only there blocking the view of the tank.

They are planning to bring them back, dont have a date though. I could use a free one , since after 6.0 update WG cut off my Swedish commanders first name.

Any details on this? I want to get rid of this stupid Duke commander but I cant pass up on the perks it gives. Especially with the Italian heavy line out now.

And fidgeting, not standing at attention like a real military-type.

I've had multiple international crew voices that I paid gold to use suddenly changed to the absolutely irritating new default voice, I would like some answers as to when this will be addressed WG.

Me too.

 

At last count I lost 7 custom crews. I have one, Jan Hammer, that seems to have lost his first name. A few times I've noticed a gender change or language change.

 

And my latest, Joe doesn't seem to know who the enemy is.

 

Don't bother with support, I just got the run around...twice.

It would be hard to bring it back having randomly deleted everybody's crew customization vouchers, then a year later bring back crew customization vouchers but say to people okay you've gotta re-buy those digital items we deleted from your accounts.

That's the sort of thing that might get games into trouble with various government consumer protection bodies.

My guess we renamed crews to offensive names, which than appeared on screenshots all over internet and that's not good thing for WG maybe?

No, I recall at least one crew name being rejected by their filter. I don't recall what it was, but it wasn't intended to be offensive. It just wasn't accepted, so I went with something else.

 

It was nice to be able to name commanders after my Grandfathers, both WW2 veterans, one of them actually a senior NCO in the Tanks.

I've heard of such things, but they seem to be entirely fictional, at least here in Canada.

 

The retailer is always right. Until consumers leave in droves and they go bust. That has happened a lot lately, even to stores that once seemed to have a near-monopoly.

 

The remaining stores have websites riddled with 3rd party scammers, looking to ripoff gullible grannies who think they are buying gifts for their grandkids at reasonable prices, only for the disappointed kid to discover that it's actually something trivial designed to LOOK like what gran thought she was buying. The retailers are unlikely to clamp down on the scammers, so yet more consumers are lost. It's little wonder that traditional retail here will soon be dead.

It is unbelievable how much functionality they stripped out of their game. It truly is back in beta. You should all get a tag.

 

p.s. It's great when they add back in something they took out and some players line up to thank them for their hard work.

 

 


Welcome to the forums. Where you can call people stupid, just don't call them passive-aggressive.

when this comes back, I want compensated for 28 customizations I had to waste on meaningless features for commanders, so I didn't totally lose them back in October/November.

Hopefully they do what they did when they initially added customization and give 10 vouchers per year they've played.

So if this is going to be added back. So to speak. Would that mean I’m getting my vouchers back? Yeah I never used them . 

Success is the ability to go from one failure to another with no loss of enthusiasm

We had way more than we actually needed before. But once they were gone, many of us really wanted them back. Especially since some of us now have multiple bears, jokers, saints, etc, all with the exact same names. And potentially with different "nationalities", if you accidentally transferred one. Now there are some obvious candidates for changing!

I ran out of crews to customise, so still had some left.

 

Now I've got new crews stuck with foghorn leghorn.

 

Do the right thing WG,

  • put customisation back (not even sure why it went away... names/voices/pictures don't interfere with being able to move nation) 

AND

  • give people their customisation vouchers back you took, or give out new ones for the hassle of it all.
