This post is about if paper vehicles should be added or forgotten. I will list pros and cons about each.
Should paper vehicles be added? Well, in a way, yes, and no. Yes, because it’d allow Gaijin to add many more vehicles, but they’d need to be balanced.
Possible sub tree for these vehicles, so that they don’t interfere with main progression
Not a lot of info on vehicles
Some could be considered too OP, and would need constant reworks
So, should these vehicles, like the O-I or the E-50 be put in the game? Possibly, they can, but there would need to be changes.
One: Add them into their own sub tree so they don’t interfere with the main progression trees (Do not count them toward minimum vehicles needed to progress a rank, but make it to where when they’re purchased, they count toward unlocking the next rank)
Two: Use the best sources (blueprints, first hand experience, etc.)
Now how to implement them:
They could be their own trees (Like how researchable and premiums are separate, add something like this)
When the next rank is unlocked, the previous rank’s blueprint vehicles are unlocked for research, and you need to research the vehicle before it to unlock the next (For example, in order to research the E-75, one must research the E-50)
Alternatively, in order to research the blueprint vehicles, the vehicles the blueprints are based off of must be researched first.
What do you think? Do you think that paper vehicles should be added, or avoided? If added, how would you implement them?
