With all the hate on avatars on the forums, you'd think that avatars were the embodiment of apocalypse or something. 

 

It's not that bad. 

 

Seriously, stop complaining about getting slightly less free stuff. 

 

Besides, Ribblestripe from WG said they're working on making custom avatars a thing.

My time is not free. For these to be free they would show up without me having to do anything. Maybe your time is worthless but mine is not.

Unless they are going to include tens of thousands of custom images into the game client (required for other people to see your avatar) this will only be from a select list like the clan avatars are now. 

 

Personally, I'm happy the daily crates are next to worthless. Better than having to log in for parts.

Oh, wow, five seconds to hit the shopping cart and the "open" button. What's that realistically worth to ya, two and a half cents?

In all seriousness, though, if they would make avatars for achievements to "display your tanking prowess" or some other wordy adspeak, I would be all for having avatars.

5 seconds plus 6 minutes plus 6 minutes every day 7 days a week is 84 minutes plus change, according to where I work that's a little less then $60.00 of my time.

I think that's why they have Rating Battles and that is worthy what you stated..

If they want to keep the avatars work them in a different way. I would rather have a booster or some credits instead of a fancy pic.

What exactly do they do  Nothing but take up space.  They are ugly and meaningless. They do not make the game more exciting  I do not use them.  They come and go. I am tired of seeing red dots to let me know I have them.  They are distracting.  Give me something I can use, something to see accomplishments or to build on. They take away from the game.   If they represented something I might use them.  I look at what others have used in the game and for what, again, meaningless.  Its like someone gave me free [edited]roaches to live in my house    Get rid of them

The first time an avatar showed up I thought, "What a waste."  The last time I saw an avatar I thought, "Still a waste.  Who really WANTS an avatar?"  I see in the poll so far that there are 25% who want them. Why?  Explain that please so I can appreciate the avatars at least from another point of view; aside from a passive, fatalistic "What can we do about it.  Quit complaining."

I don’t see the attraction to having avatars, if they performed a function, great. It just looks like a coding exercise for interns or to pass the time. Even if it gives us just .005% of free Xp  or credits it’d have more value than now. But keep trying, much of what is done is great...

That answer is not what my question was wondering about.  Of COURSE we express our opinions.  I wanted to know the basis, not the right of expression.

Ok, what we can do is really very little as a few, but if the masses (a lot of players have one voice and agree) that these avatars are really worthless. Avatars would seem cool to new players that don't know any better, but to the veterans it's a waste of time.. Now if WG added another bonus box just for the avatar and it would be active once in a while (not all the time) now that would be OK for all the kids in the game. Please pass on this Poll to your friends and Clan mates.. Cheers

I'm sick of opening my daily crates and getting these dumb avatars, at best they do nothing and mean nothing, at their worst they deprive you of more useful drops such as credit boosters.

 

If WG want to keep them make them drop in addition to the regular goodies or make them worth having, like a boost or multiplier, or even to show as a master avatar for the tank your playing - if you install it and you have a mastery in the tank your playing others see it in game, or some other achievement (say rating games status)

 

But please stop depriving us of our precious credit boosters which are only available from crates

 

This has all probably been said before (I don't have the time to read the forums anymore) but just wanted to let WG know how much I despise them for adding this totally useless feature
