...all those weeb ships in my harbor finally getting the "apropriate premium skin" for their respective tiers.

As well as the ability to mount a regular camo ofc.

Theese ships feel super unrewarding to play, in terms of XP/Credit gain, and unnessessarily so.

Like really WG, why did you come up with this nonsense to begin with?

All this does is make otherwise fun ships alot less exciting to play. Clearly something we all want.

What stops you from playing the regular Techtreeships? You can use any normal or premium camo on those you want.

If it's the additional daily wins you are after, then you have to live with WG restricting it's potentional extra gain because of the way those ships were given out. Technically those are rewardships and not premiumships.

It's almost like those ships are from a collaboration or something.

 

They're functionally exactly the same as their tech tree counterparts (or in the case of Takao, their premium counterpart), so like Miessa said: Play the regular versions instead. The appeal of the ships is the flashy skins and the voicelines of the commanders. If that isn't to your liking, use the regular ships.

 

Although I do agree that they should get bonuses from camos.

Until the recent Black Friday variants came along, this was one annoying aspect of WOWS compared to WOT - in the latter, 'clown' cammos have the same cammo bonus (almost) as the same tank with a standard cammo.

Whilst it's work for not much gain (possibly excepting any that can be reused i.e. don't have IP issues relating to them), I would hope that WG will suitably retrofit the relevant ships at some point.

 

It won't make much difference to me personally - it's not like I'm short of premiums to play in randoms; it'd be nice to be able to play all 'premiums' in proper game modes without one arm semi-tied behind your back...

The ARP Ships which i assume the OP ment.

Basically carboncopys of Kongos, Myokos and an Atago which are unable to equip any other camo (which would defeat their whole purpose as they are just special painted rewardships without premiumshipbonuses).

As far I as I followed the topic last time it came up WG will probably not change the looks of the camo itself (because of the T&C's of the colaboration I guess). There was a suggestion to have the ARP camo provide the usual boni in-game boni instead (-3%, +4%) but I don't know how far this idea has progressed by now.

Thanks. The ARP ships are so old already that I couldn't imagine anybody to start a discussion about them.

Which is not entirely true. They are an odd mix of rewardship and premium ship once WG ruled them to be true IJN ships. And while they will not provide any substantial in-game bonus they count as premium ships as far as captains are concerned. This means that you could switch one captain through 9 different ARP ships and 9 daily wins without ever having to respec once.

I haven't been playing long enough to have ARP ships, but the same applies to the Dragon ones (basically, Myoko clones).

 

Probably the least amount of work would be to simply change the ships' characteristics to match the 'parent' design fitted with the standard perma-cammo (essentially, the WOT model) - you'd get the odd tenth or so percentage point variation, depending on when the various elements come into play in the various formulae that are impacted, but it'd be close enough (cf the two versions of the AMX-13-57, for instance).

 

I wouldn't be surprised to see the Dragon ones come back now and again - easy money for Lunar New Year...

Yes the captainswap is the only exception. What I was saying apart from swapping through captains to get multiple dailys there is no difference xp and credit wise to the equivalent ship they are based on because those are as WG also said rewardships.

I may be wrong, but I think there is a bit - because you can't apply any cammo to the reward ships, they're only as good as a 'naked' version of their parent design.

There are far more important things to be worrying about, but it would be a 'nice to have' to get it fixed.

I did have some of those ARP ships at some point but to be honest I don't really like all that Japanese animation stuff. I'd have preferred a Wallace captain. By eck, Torpedoes to port, Gromit!

 

Failing that a Tom Hardy voiceover would be great, some Steven Seagal gruffness, although there would be a problem with his pauses.
