Yeah, I agree, but it appears there must be a market for them....

I wonder if Wargaming ever feels bad about making money off the mentally challenged. I can't imagine who else would pay for avatars.

If  WG wants to sell avatars. They should  Put them on a small flag attach to your radio antenna on your tank. Jolly Roger flag would look cool Going into battle.

Thank you for buying avatars. This supports the game we all love to play. That said, I personally will find other ways to support it.

I called it on Day 1 but I didn't think they would try selling avatars that fall out of the small daily common container. One hour of coding and I bet they make $25,000 USD off it. Of course, they COULD spend some time on tutorials for new players or incentivizing them to suck less as they move up tiers but that's just crazy talk.

I actually have no problem with the concept. I just find its implementation is seriously lacking. I prefer avatars that have some historical significance or, even better, avatars that relay an achievement by the person of some kind. I believe World of Warship works this way and even gives you them free. I’d actually pay, even 500 gold, for an avatar that has some meaning & significance to it.

 

BTW a good example of this is the new Tea Time attachment for British tanks. I think it looks awesome, as it gives a very unique historical feel to the tank. Previous attachments were very generic though and didn’t interest me in the slightest.

 

So they’re stepping in the right direction but taking their time about it. Have to wade through this crud before you get to the good stuff.

I’m guessing a lot of people will just apply the daily free gold they receive, to acquire them. (I suppose everyone is still receiving the daily gold...) If so, then it wouldn’t actually be costing them anything and would be equivalent to receiving them for free anyway. 

 

I haven’t checked them out yet, but remember WG announcing something about them, just can’t remember the details. I imagine some will like the idea, and others will ignore it, just like the temporary ones, already available.

You now have the chance to buy a crate with a drop rate where the "prize" to entice you is a flipping avatar.

Apparently the OP is a moron that somehow missed the thread already started on this topic.

 

You should post your sweet avatar pulls there.

Every time a press battle I lose and every time I buy a crate I win something.

I’m not a total idiot : I will keep buying crates.

So, I saw this thread, and then I was like "wait, I can get a permanent avatar for 100 gold?".

 

And I immediately jumped in the game and bought 2 of the crates.

 

I actually happen to rather like avatars, and some of them look pretty nice. I got the Harsh Ultimatum one, which I rather like, so I'm pretty happy. 

 

Now I have a question for the people here hating on avatars. Remind me again what exactly about avatars do you hate? I never understood all the hate they received at the beginning. They're a fun way to add some extra personalization to a game that is otherwise fairly lacking in it.

 

And 100 gold isn't exactly a super steep price either. That's 40,000 credits, 2500 free XP, or half a garage slot, none of which I really need. I'd rather have a permanent way of flexing on the salty kids here and on the official discord server continuously whining for an "avatar boycott", and do it in style too.
