I voted yes, but I could have voted no as well. This is not a yes/no problem!  The question is asked wrong. wotb needs to hire a psychologist, who knows some basic social things! they are skilled in how to ask questions and statistics. wotb and many players totally do not! there needs to be at least a 3.answer. like 'maybe' (or could I have checked both yes and no)?

I like avatars per se. same as we like personal pics in this forum (actually i don't).  But wotb makes just such an annoying fuzz about this, I like to barf. It tries to make big money of it in the future. in a very infantil way. Let us buy our avatars for cheap and be done with it. We don't want it for pseudo-"free" -we have to pay for it with boosters and credits already. nice trick. create an emergency, then we r happy to pay for removing it.? Are we?

But it is a Yes or No, in this situation it isn't gray! It's black or white.. Simple, is it productive, Yes or No? If you vote Maybe or I don't know then the person probably need a head doctor (psychologist- chemical imbalance). Saying maybe or I don't know, is like being a little pregnant or the girl's belly is getting bigger (not from eating) I don't know what going. You have been here a very short time with under 100 battles, give it time dude you will change your mind.. Luck on the battlefield..

For those that don't like avatars you must boycott them to let WG they are useless to us. Let others know pass the word of power.. The more players do this the avatar will go the way of the Do-Do bird.

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.

u simply dont get it.

I'm  sorry that the the free stuff that you get from the free crates in this free game isn't the free stuff that you wanted.

Good morning Tankers, dude the free stuff that we were getting was useful (very productive), but these F--King Avatars are useless (being logical)! I know it's WG's game and control, but if you don't voice your opinion and WG doesn't listen they will lose customers. Face it, it's the older players that buy the tanks, the gold, the credits, etc., etc.. Out of 2 accounts this morning I received 4 avatars, so I lost figuratively 3 common containers and 1 big container (each common container costs 65000 credits + 300 gold for the big container) do the math. If we didn't voice our opinion we would still be stuck with the crap Spare Parts!! To all "Luck on the battlefield"..

A.  Don't buy the containers for gold.  It's a bad move with or without avatars.

B.  It's still free stuff from a free crate (seriously don't use gold to buy crates) in a free to play game.

I got that, older players don't and the newer players shouldn't and the older players should tell the newer player not to and show them the way to become better players. I keep recommending to new players to go to YouTube and watch some of the vids they have on WOT Blitz. At least they would have some kind of idea.. Too bad that some older players criticize and be-little the new players instead of showing them..

WG are you guys hurting that bad in which you force the avatars on us to save yourself from giving us booster and credits.. Maybe then you should take them away, but you'll be hurting the new players and you need the new player to keep you going on to spend the money hopefully on the game and not on some crazy video on YouTube (MMA fighter).

spamming the forum typing in red font

bumping some threads needlessly

creating alt accounts to bypass moderation

creating signature with 10 miles of the same message 


Really? 

That only ensures that valid feedback just gets tossed aside.

Section 4.3 of the forum rules you didn't read, and probably because of a technical limitation.

Really?  You never looked through the forum rules? 

 

4. FORUM ADMINISTRATION and MODERATION

Spoiler 


From : http://forum.wotblit...tz-forum-rules/
Which is linked in every forum section and something we all agree to, when we join one of WG's forums. 
 

Technical limitations on phpbb forums etc don't allow to limit color use, at least not easily, and it would likely involve stripping out all font options for everybody. So, it is simply a written rule.

OK my bad on the red, but bumping other threads which are in the forum anyway (I don't delete them), but it goes to show you that threads come along they get moved down the list and forgotten. WG very seldom gives feedbacks

on threads posted unless it hit the HOT topic which this one did and now it gets noticed and it gets picks apart about the little things like bumping threads, alt accounts to get pass moderators. Why don't you address the real issue here and address the avatar issue whether you like them or not. But I finally got some attention on the matter. I appreciate your comments (Freedom of speech) and I learn along the way.. "Luck on the battlefield"..

I say dump the avatars- who is going to want to open a container for 65k credits or 300 gold if they have it or 600 gold for a chance to win not 1 but 2 avatars at once? Then they’re only temporary. Opened common containers and 1 avatar each time first 2 common containers back to back. 3rd Common container 3x common credit booster.
Then here’s another one- Cost you you 65k credits but win only 60k credits from the common container..? This needs to be changed as well. Does this mean that you actually lose -5k credits? According to credit balances after checking ... yes it does.
Avatars earned in rating battles means nothing just like rating battles mean nothing. Another wallet fest or doctored up bot team to wreck a carrying ability. Then get an avatar for a rating... blah blah blah. Long ques - short battles- fast losses... make a tin foil hat comment and I’ll explain where the tip of one is and how it’s prepared to be placed... don’t.!

The best way to give feedback to WG - at this time (things used to be different) - is via the Official Threads that get created per update in "Update Center" http://forum.wotblit...-update-center/ , via social media (FB, twitter) and maybe via app store reviews. 

I totally hear you when it comes to threads getting bumped down the list, people creating 6-12-24-... duplicate threads on the same thing even though there may already be three to six threads on it from that day ticks me off too ... anyhow, there is value in bring a good existing thread to the front again ... but repeated bumping as sometimes done, on a poor thread and/or subject matter which WG already has said they'll not change their mind, then spamming the same message 100 times as was being done, only makes the mods more alert.
