I am getting to the stage where I have significant numbers of tanks in the garage again, since the massive reduction from 5.5, I am now back up to 163!

I am also a bit of a collector as well so don’t really like selling tanks.....unless I really hate them!

During the last couple of competitions I have gained a few tanks from either rewards in the game, of I have also actually “bought” a few using the accumulated xp/ silver/ and free xp......mainly tanks that I am missing in my trees.

 

I have been using the “favourites” tag for the tanks that I have that I am determined to get to 100 games,  or determined to Ace.....however, the current updates of WG have really pushed me to desperation as every time the update I end up having to clean install and this resets everything !

 

I have asked WG over the last year to provide additional ways to sort the garage ie not played, not maxed crew etc.......and every time WG respond with say answer.....they do not have any plans to do anything like this!

 

So, now to the nub of the post.....

- HOW do you actually control your tanks in the garage.......

- How do you sort them out ....if at all


Any alternative ideas would help!

You want them sorted so it will be easier for you to find them?

There’s not a lot you can do...

 

I’m lucky, not had to do a delete and re-install for ages so the combination of favourites and filtering by class, premium/tech tree/collectible etc works for my 135 tanks...

Well, the game allows you to sort by nation, tier, tank type, x2 bonus, x5 bonus, birthday bonus, non-fully researched, fully researched, tech tree, premium, and collector tanks, or any combination of the above.

 

Since I tend to play only 1 tank at a time, that's more than enough for me.  Regarding aces and 100 battles played, I've just been slowly climbing through the tiers, lowest tier first, so it's been easy to remember where I am.

I tag the ones that have not yet been aced. Since I have grinded everything it is plenty enough organizing.

Double tap on the tank & it will be pinned to the extreme left of your line up with a little pin showing. You can pin more than one & filter pinned tanks. Double tap to unpin.

 

156 tanks here. I sell tanks I dislike pretty readily & would sell some of the lower tier ones but they are scarcely worth anything so why bother? I even rage-sold the Death Star a while back (but have since re-bought). I also have tanks like the cockroach completely unequipped & never played, waiting for me to become interested in them.

I did realise that, and that is what I do, but dope to the fact I am clean installing every update, as well as a few times in between to simply to be able to play the s*************** game! Every install resets everything!

Which is why I always asking for advice.

I have been lucky (ios/ipad pro) in not having to redo this tagging in several years. Still missing the ace in ~ 1/3 of my tanks so it would be PITA. I tag new tanks when I got them, and untag after ace match.

Pin the favourites.

Play the x2 games.

That keeps the garage manageable.

(Check out mine, it’s huuuuuuge)

Empros is recruiting! Message me in game to apply.

Why do you even need to organise your garage?
~player with 2 tanks
Seriously though, just sell everything that you won't play anytime soon

I'd like more ways to filter them, too.  I want three or four categories of tanks, which are just meaningful for me.  The pinned and non-pinned tanks only gives two categories.  Are you sure lobbying them will be ineffectual?  


Falling down? No, just passing quickly into an area of slower time.

You can do that. There is tier sorting.

Yes, but I want to sort by other categories of my definition, such these are my favourites, these I will need to work on, these puzzle me, these I hate etc.

I do two of those...my favourites get tagged, the ones I hate...

get sold ;)

 

I get what you mean, having another way to have semi-permanent filter big garages would be nice, sadly I can’t see it ever happening though 3(
