Apparently what Wargames has decided sells is this new 3D Commander:

Yeah it’s a good thing she has that 3rd Armor tattoo to shows that she’s a tanker because nothing else does. At least her traditional weapon of a tanker that machinegun doesn’t have an ammo box attached, because who needs that sort of nonsense. :facepalm:

 

Sorry, just needed to rant and this happened to come to my attention. 


I don’t know how to act my age! I’ve never been this old before!

That gun must be a lot lighter than it appears, the way she is holding it, with her dainty little fingers.

 

I hope we don't get a 3D Santa as our "Christmas Tank" this year.

 

Though I might be okay with a 3D Mariah, if she sings "All I Want For Christmas Is You".

Who TF asked for 3D commanders? Sorry to beat a dead horse but I am still lost as to the answer to this question or where to find it. What was wrong with the old customization? Especially cos you now can't change the voice of your crew its rubbish.

nobody asked for 3d commanders. It is just a new way for WGCB to monetize the game. Nobody even bought a 2d commander for 3300 gold.

Kept an "In memoriam WoT Console" for a long time, but since recent updates the game is enjoyable yet again. And then they dropped 7.2....

I don't know who asked for them. However,  the person that thought of them needs a huge bonus.  They are selling like hot cakes. When I look at the top 3 of every battle.  90% it has a 3D commander.  Love them, hate them... WG is laughing all the way to the bank..

Agree, they should be adding all the maps back, working on better HUD options, graphic options setting, plus adding things like Clan Wars built into the game that handles everything etc.

Personally I’m seeing the opposite and if I do occasionally see them it’s the free earn able commander’s from the season or earn ops. You hardly see the purchase able commanders in-game 

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

Im not sure about 90% at all. And besides even if they did have them, how many actually paid for them? Lots are being given away for free or part of things like season passes.

I just feel that 3D Commanders are a desperate roll of the revenue dice. 6/CW hasn't brought in the players and WG needs the moolah. Am looking forward to Commanders doing the floss or dancing gangnam style in the near future.

I don't know what time you play,  but I play US Central time in the evenings. I see a ton of them. Sorry, but I will disagree with ( oh most are probably free ) CW might not be a success, but the 3D commanders are a success.

Alot of them are the free ones I see. But I also see some of the sold ones as well.

More than one would expect. I believe they are making some money from them, whether we like it or not.

I have to admit I did buy the Baroness as a stand alone commander. More from the voice though than anything else. I do enjoy listening to her.

 

If they offered voice options for commanders, which better be part of the upcoming customization, it will go a long way.

I exclusively use 3D commanders now. I am currently grinding 10 hero commanders and have a few more i haven't started. I rarely buy premium tanks but buy every new commander that comes out. I wish we could pay gold to transfer our skills from a 2D commander to 3D ones. I have a lot of unused 9 skill 2D commanders.

I admit I bought both, the Werewolf and the Vampire German lady. But only cause I think they look ok. This Vasquez gal.... Well, guess we found John Rambos mother, the way she is armed.....

To be fair I have to say I dodn't bought them with my cash. My employer gives some bonus on a so called shopping card. Sometimes I buy PS Cards from that stack. So my employer financed my commanders ;)

The Vazquez commander sort of reminds me of Vasquez from the Colonial Marines in the movie "Aliens"

Aliens 2? She was the gal with the smart gun, right?

I might have seen the hentai vampire thing once or twice but beyond that, just the earnable or silver bought ones.

In the beginning the universe was created. This has made a lot of people very angry and has been widely regarded as a bad move.
