THE ONLY PURPOSE OF AVATARS IS TO RIP US OFF ON OUR CONTAINER SUPPIES. I WON PUT ANYMORE MONEY IN THIS GAME UNTIL THEY REFUND US FOR THOSE USELESS --------AVATARS--------.

The only person happy about the stupid avatars is probably manbearcat, only because they have so many cat-themed avatars for him.

A good heavy driver knows how to make shots bounce off their armor, how to use cover while fighting at the front, when to get out there and just take the shot to protect his team, to keep the reds attention focused so his team can flank, and to consistently do damage while all of that happens.

Refund you what? You're not paying credits for the daily crates and/or gold for the larger crates are you?

 

Don't get me wrong, I hate the avatars and refuse to equip them, but they're coming from free crates so this is just a reduction in the quality of the free stuff I get.

Not a fan of any of the holiday ones, but I'll be getting the platinum league avatar for ratings battles, disappointed it's only temporary cause it looks pretty cool.

What are Suppies?

P.S. yes the avatars are dumb and do take up a container slot I would rather get silver or the rare ever occasional 100 gold from.  But WG has to figure out how to market a new shiny object to attract pets and children to the game so they spend more money given to them from mommy and daddy!

Agreed. While the avatars are stupid and should be ignored you don't have the right to a refund. Just ignore them and take pity on those that feel the need to install them. Nobody is looking at your avatars and if they are they are overlooking vital information in the tank list. Just. Don't. Install. Avatars.

Exactly.  You can tell who the drooling morons are by the fact that they use avatars.  They always self identify.

I'm a paying player, full year premium plus a little here and there.   Not making or breaking WoT, but not a free player. 

 

Especially while I'm saving credits for tier 10 tank at nearly $6 mil, and stuck at $4 million for a long time ... getting two or three avatars in a row when I could be getting credit boosters *feels* like being cheated.   Just think if you had a rewards credit card and instead of 2% reward for the $1000 you spent on a giant screen TV you got a letter saying "No rewards today. Something better! You get 5 My Little Pony stickers and a Justin Bieber fridge magnet instead. Aren't we awesome?"  No, you are insulting my intelligence.  It's a bad business model. 

 

Final straw: I got a fluffy alien avatar for a medium sized crate yesterday, *after* x-mas rewards had ended.  My 12 year old daughter heard me "arrgh!" in desperation and just laughed at how stupid the fluffy alien was. When she saw I had two other christmas ornament avatars already she agreed it was a stupid way to make customers feel special.  Worse it just means a guaranteed longer time grinding. 

 

I'm not quitting the game over this, but I refuse to use them just in case WoT is counting on usage statistics as a guide to whether or not to keep them. 

 

Thumbs down on the Fluffy Alien. ;-)

Your point about avatars being stupid and a bad business model is valid. But your rewards credit card is a terrible analogy.

 

When you get a credit card, it comes along with a contract that very specifically sets out the rights and obligations of both you and the credit card provider. That is a legal contract and is binding. The credit card company has a legal obligation to give you your rewards. There is nothing even remotely similar with respect to the free Blitz crates.

Spot on.

It's part of the pregame lineup review. Plus it's fun to tease the avatar wearing nubs as the battle begins

If you are a man would you think getting a free tampon or anything related to feminine hygiene is going to be a good free gift if given to you to use?

 

How about a free pair of glasses for a person who is visually impaired?
