Avatars, little symbols that appear alongside your tank, and have no obvious impact to either game-play or functionality - so why are they frequently appearing in containers - surely this simply is a tactic for avoiding giving out something of more useful value - such as Crew XP, or Combat XP ?

 

It'd be interesting to see what others feel about them, and perhaps, if there's a significant trend of thought one way or another - we should present the results to WG (Ribble & Co...) asking them to consider the Communities wishes. (which maybe wishful thinking).

Wishful thinking indeed. The avatar thing started off OK imo, but now it's just ridiculous...

 

I would be more inclined towards them if:

 

1. Players could design their own

2. They were given for special achievements (e.g "Tactician" for reaching 60%, "One Man Army" for kolobanoving a certain number of times, "Sniper" for having a hit ratio above a certain percentage, "Veteran" for reaching a certain battle count or playing for a certain no. of years, etc) as opposed to being cheap throwaways like they are now

3. They were removed from crates, or at least if they were not the only thing that drops.

 

I think that no. 2 especially is a perfectly reasonable idea, and no.1 is decent too. No. 3 I can't see changing, but I still think it would be a nice touch.

they are there to reduce the amount of other good stuff you may get. I would prefer to get from time to time an empty container than the spam of avatars coming in and going out.

They are just annoying as hell because when i log in I have to wait 5 minutes for all my notifications of expired avatars to finish before I can do anything. They have also rendered the 'original' crates as pretty useless now too. Its either avatars or credit boosters and I know which id prefer.

 

That said, I do like the new mission crates as they are quite generous on their rewards.

They are ugly beyond belief part of a couple and not even worse 10 credits.

i wish they could let us use medals instead

mind you it s not the only ugly design in the game .attachments are seriously dumb and there s tons of nasty looking camo that you can buy for gold that wont even give you any advantageous camo rating par of making the tank look like it went to some 80's techno party in  siberia of something

wg needs to get themselves some kinda graphic designer or something

I've come around on avatars, at least as far as event ones go. Still not a fan of the temp ones in crates as they just generate annoying notifications, but I quite like the kangaroo, V, 75 and now the awesome-looking howling moon ones.

They kind of added something like that recently

Yeah 2 and 3 happened pretty much in full over the last few updates.

I can't see them ever allowing players to design their own because... well, you can imagine the sorts of shenanigans that would ensue. It'd be wall to wall genitalia and swastikas.

I agree with removing avatars from crates, and the avatars should only be obtained through tournaments, achievements like getting a certain amount of medals to unlock an avatar, special game modes, birthday events, special crates, or obtained via buying a bundle. They are WAY more fun to collect than just getting a worthless temporary avatar (Though I like the Harsh Ultimatum avatar, probably the best there is among the temporary avatars.)

Remove them!! I want more premium tanks in containers and credits and boosters. If you want an avatar just get medals. No avatars in crates for me.

yeah. when i was still green(fresh), i kind of liked those things until i realised that they are less worth than that Pz. Sfl IVc. at least you can earn credits in that thing. honestly i think that trading avatars for gold is the best idea bot unfortunately WG is here but anyway, yes

Temporary avatars should only be dished out to those newbs at tier 1-3
