It would be great to temporarily turn off purchased upgrades to be able to enter your tank in matches.
Quite often I have a tank that is 1 or 2 levels higher than an available match.
Why not have the ability to turn off an ammo or armour upgrade to allow you to enter.
This wouldn't detract from ghor revenue, as you would of had to pay for the upgrade in the first place.
It seems obvious, so will probably of been mentioned before (apologies).

It's simple enough to add upgrades, so why not make them toggle on and 'off-able', to suit the match/game.

It might add another level of interest in the game, finding that perfect balance of upgrades vs performance.

Thanks Basmal, Are you saying it's on a list somewhere, and has been for some time.
Does it need mentioning again?

Yea. That was supposed to be added in 2.0 but either they tabled it or something in the programming is not liking the engine.


You don't choose the tank. The tank chooses you, and when it does respect it and it will respect you.

I'm glad I brought the subject up again then.
Maybe someone in tecreat could get a definitive answer on why it's not been added.

I thank your missing the point here he is talking about! it has already been paid through the upgrades no need to add currency charges
..... granite I have 118 tanks so I can find something on the maps to play , but in my mind this would increase gameplay

To be honest I will pick out a tank from my inventory that I want to use there are times I will wait and wait because there are no rooms for that level I would like the option to lower my tank so I can join a room rather than sitting around twiddling my thumbs.

Thank you Vint.
Just to confirm, I'm not suggesting upgrades are uninstalled. Just the option to switch them on/off temporarily, to be able to enter a game.
A simple slider bar for each upgrade, or similar, to configure the tank how you need it.
I too, find myself wanting to join a match, but my chosen tank has too many upgrades.
I'd like to switch off a couple of upgrades to drop the tanks level.

Absolutely the upgrades should not be uninstalled
The option to lower the level of the tank could be an upgrade itself for each individual tank.

The suggestion has been forwarded to the developers and is being evaluated. We will let you know once we have any news in this regard.

And you are missing the point that developers need higher income. They won't update the game unless there's something gets them more money.

Remember what they care about.

TECREAT makes contests not game mechanics. We do have insider info but Error will most likely just post it in the topic. For contests yes though. The main members don't have direct contact with the developers so like I said Error is the man you want.


You don't choose the tank. The tank chooses you, and when it does respect it and it will respect you.

Hmmm.... the game just keeps dying. I would have to disagree with you rob, this would allow originally op tanks to go down a few levels and just dominate a room.

it would be pretty much the same as what a lot of players do looking through the online game list finding a level 56-71 and entering it with there level 70 tank I don't see them dominate the room if you ever noticed the rooms themselves will increase and decrease their level based on the level of tanks that enter the match.

Obviously I thought the idea was sound, I didn't say it would be ready to go straight out the box.
Although I appreciate all the comments, this is why there is a forum.
