    Why can't I shoot green tanks?

The EU server is already planning a boycott for Update 3.8, where the players will refuse to play the game for 24 hours. If you didn't know already, the new equipment system is due to arrive in that update; it is terrible, has unlocking timers, utilizes a different currency, and replaces a working system that has been a component of WoT for years. 

 

Why the hell is replacing the current equipment system necessary? The news portal claims that there's not enough choice, that "If we don’t take into consideration minor differences, the choice of equipment is always the same." [edited]! No one from my memory has ever complained about the lack of choice of equipment. Limiting the slots to 3 encourages careful thinking about the tank and the role it plays. It shouldn't matter how popular certain equipment are, yet that's a major reason why the current system is being replaced. Again, Wargaming is pulling feedback out of their asses; no one ever asked for this. 

 

Why the hell is there an unlock timer? What is this, a strategy game? What purpose does it serve? Oh right, you can spend gold to accelerate the process: like anyone's going to be stupid enough to do that! You'd think that with the unpopularity of the Premiumization system that Wargaming would've learned, but no! Soon enough everything is going to be "accelerated" with gold!

 

Why the hell do some equipment give armor and HP buffs? I thought this was equipment, not "change the way the goddam tank is assembled so that it's better quality". Most of the new equipment seem like crew skills. 

 

Why the hell does there need to be another currency? Is it so that you can offer a better excuse for why Storage was implemented? Or is Wargaming going to be bundling spare parts with new tanks now? Hey look, you could pay gold for that!

 

Why the hell does Wargaming keep coming up with [edited]that we don't want? We didn't want provisions, we didn't want certain map remakes, and we sure as hell don't want this new equipment system. Where is our actual feedback going?

I cant wait for it

   ​"Well John, people have different priorities. Some are here to drive historical tanks and have fun, others for the glorious color coded numbers and other for the relationships and friends they've made. The middle group are the ones who'll say they can't play due to 3.8, they're afraid of having smaller numbers than everyone else and losing the imaginary position they have. They're also the same people who immediately pull stats into any discussion so that they can try to discredit the other side. I will admit I have good stats but I honestly am here for the tanks and fun. Once this game becomes anything other than that I'm out , but until then I'm here to stay."

If I have to wait for the cooldown period for the equipment slot to unlock, I wouldn't be playing that tank anyhow ...  This system is way too complicated for this old guy to understand right now anyhow so my plan is to wait for the update, get my spare parts then try to figure out what tanks are keepers and what to sell.  With 103 tanks in garage right now, it will take me weeks to figure this out ...

Looks like my kids will win on this one - they've been asking me to play Minecraft with them for months.

 

And I hate Minecraft.  But it's looking better than Blitz 3.8, while sober or while drunk.

I think there will be a nearly 30 day boycott from many of the more experienced players (assuming I understand this right.  It could be as low as a 6-7 day boycott)--basically, we will set up our favorite tanks and premium tanks to get the new equipment at all three tiers then park the game until the timer is done
