I'd love to see the ability to get something like special Decals or paint schemes for performance in your planes - something like Marks of Excellence from WoT. Just something to help show when you're really good with your favorite planes

Look on your plane for the kill hash marks, we have those?

Those are just overall total marks though - they don't really show your performance vs other players in the same plane, doesn't really say anything other than you've potentially played a lot with the plane.. With WoT Marks of Excellence there are 3 levels based on how much damage you've done relative to other players in the same tank - 1 mark for being in the 65% percentile or higher, 2 Marks for 85% and 3 marks for 95% percentile over the last 14 days. I don't really know what the optimium stat in WoWP would be to match, but having a way to show that you're really good in a plane would be nice

For me it really boils down to I'd like to know how good I am compared to other players in my favorite planes and if I'm really doing well vs other players I'd like to have a way to show it off

Completely fair. One of my complaints is the lack of... flair/flavor/paint options in this game.

Considering they removed things like winrate displayed per aircraft in the hangar, survival stat (yes, it's possible, WG, to survive a match even with respawn), and that sort of thing, I don't think WG wants you (or anyone else) to know how well you are doing in any specific aircraft.

 

I mean, look at the personal ratings.  That's not even indicative of how "well" a person plays.  I could fly really well, but not much and do just as well in ratings as someone really bad who plays a lot.  I actually think that's a good thing, since there are rewards involved and it's nice that effort is rewarded as well as raw skill/luck.

 

I do think it would be nice to have something like this, but I don't think it's on their to-do list.

I have never been interested in displays of prowess on the planes themselves.  The hash marks as to how many air kills or how many ground targets you've killed seems plenty to me.

 

But I'd love for my opponents to see that I belong to a certain clan, or that I choose to advertise myself in some way with a custom skin...

 

In T6, for example, I love to play my Me-410.  It would be great to have an aircraft with a bright red or bright yellow skin,  Sort of a "come at me, bro" sort of deal.  The Red Baron had his red doped fabric.  OK, make my Spitfire V DB605 signal orange, with bold, black stripes.  That's MY signature, that nobody else can use. 

 

You see me coming from a distance, you know exactly who that is, because not one other person in the game has that paint..

I cant say that they are unique but  some of the <+20% crew experience> paint jobs for certain tech tree planes do come to mind for that COME AT ME Moment.
 


Fair warning. My success rate at speculative guesswork is much like my WinRate. Hit or Miss.
Usually I start on the right track and then a make a weird left turn and get lost in the weeds ... 
And yet it doesn't stop me from speculation.
