After seeing how Fortnite and PUBG can make MILLIONS on skins, it doesn’t surprise me.

 

 

 

But it doesn't show up *on my tank*. I would much rather I could see the avatar on the tank I'm about to obliterate (or be obliterated by).

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.

1000 gold would be a bit too much. 100 gold is basically nothing for me. It's so easy to get small amounts of gold in this game that complaining over 100 gold is just wasting your time. I'd happily pay 200,000 credits for an avatar crate as well because it doesn't impact me in the slightest, just like 100 gold.

Yes, they are a good personalization option!  My irritation was that temporary avatars replaced something else in the loot boxes.  Getting several in a 100G box is a MUCH better option.  I really could care less about the temporary ones, but I don't mind permanent ones.

 

The fact that they don't show up on the tank bugs me.

Clans should be able to make an avatar specific to that clan, from a large clipart style avatar/flag/standard setup.

Maybe avatars are here to make boosters seem a great deal.

The key point here is " Flexing on salty kids". Lol! It's like driving the Vindicator and wrecking people and some kids rages at you and calls your tank "fat!" Kudos to WG for combining 2 things we really love, containers and boosters. They outdid Reeses with this one.

So, I posted a thread after this one was posted. Instead of deleting my thread, the mods integrated it into this thread. What a weird thing to do as it makes no sense on any level.

the only part I hate is that it is a wasted opportunity to make something useful.

they could have some kind of “merit” avatars, even temporary, like medals. 

Say, if u won ten consecutive games. Or if u had researched  a tier10 tank (I know, I know, but u need some award for everyone). Or if u researched every tank in the tech tree. Basically a lot of existing medals would do, maybe all if the counters were part of it (rasenei 21 deserves respect), and new ones could be made. Pro player for having reached 50K.

 

made simpler, some kind of replacement for markers of excellence. Or at least something that u are proud of wearing, regardless ur skill or career levels. 

 

im purposedly avoiding the usual winrates and avg dmg and because I know WG doesn’t care and want the game to be fun and inclusive. 

 

 

 

Oh and if WG wanted to make it fun, they could have made custom crew members and players would wear that as a “face”. I would build the homeless Caribbean sunglasses and flower shirt type avatar, and someone might build the Florida blonde beach girl. Or the greasy XXXX backalley car mechanics (edit: I removed the state, didn’t want to offend anyone, but picture somewhere in the middle). Or maybe that british aristocrat in uniform. (Make It Scottish and I might get 2)

 

i would pay gold to have such an avatar (not the blonde girl mind u)

 

 

 

Instead we have these cheap holiday season themes from a 1990 clipart for Microsoft word 2000 edition from the dollar store ( on CD rom mind u).

 

A more minor rant is that it adds more micromanaging the garage and less time in battle. As mentioned in the above, a free bundled permavatard solved that issue for me, I don’t even remember what it looks like. 

 

I don’t have any other complaints thank you :-)
