@MrConway I summon thee! :cap_horn:

 

Some time ago there was a proposal for the ARP and Dragon camos to provide at least basic bonuses (detectability and dispersion, even without xp bonus) which seemed fair as you can't use other camos on those ships. You promised to pass on the feedback to devs. Any update on that? :)

WG is far too busy making new premium ships to be bothered with things like these. You'll be lucky to get a worthless "it was passed on for consideration" or a mocking "soon".

Been suggested many times.

 

Often dismissed as not important :Smile_smile:

Can we just get a premium Kongo already, or a permacamo for it, at the very least.

 

What about a tier 6 Kongo (Hiei?) With better AA tomreflect operations in 1942?

We need more 80's vice rave party colored shippies. 

Yamato with discoball optics/rangefinders anyone?

Glowing like an 80s episode of top of the pops is it's own bonus!

I can only agree. I was this close to getting the yellow-bellied Dragon boat when it was last seen in the shop, but when push came to shove, I just couldn't bring myself to pay money in order to get a ship with worse or at least no better camouflage statistics than one I already had (the bubble-gum pink Myoko clone, I forget the specific name).

That would be THE Myoko. Pink&poop colors would be Ashigara, red/yellow Haguro and green for Nachi

TBH I only kept Southern Dragon and Haruna as the nicest looking ARP ship. I never managed to get the whole collection because at the time of the event I was only starting my wows career and didn't have the tiers needed to grind the tasks. I like to sail both of them from time to time in coop, where camos don't matter.

Haruna would be better since she actually outlasted her sisters.

Honestly I would be really happy if the camo was just the standard reduction in detectabilty and dispersion and if WG like they could then sell proper premium camos with the credit and XP bonuses. 

 

After all I'm happy sailing around in a ships that looks like they belong in a dodgy part of Akihabara or Kabukicho it would just be nice to have the camo values and as I said WG can still make money from selling proper premium versions its win win for us and them.

Yeah, don't have Nachi (couldn't do the requirements back then for her), and don't have any of the dragons. We got a mission I'm sure for the Southern Dragon, but only had the option to buy the Eastern Dragon if I remember correctly. Like you say without different stats it's money for another skin, a collector's thing I guess.

Meh.... I needed the credits, dont miss them one bit.

Yeah, no great loss I guess. I take it you put the commanders to good use? Still find it odd there's a teddy bear captaining a ship in my fleet somewhere

I have not leveled them up (except Ashigara). I liked how she squeaks. Shes resting now.

This shouldn't be too hard to sort out: just follow the model used for the Black Friday ships...

The ARP thing is long gone, but you'd think WG could sell a lot more of the dragon ships if they weren't gimped.

I only played the ARP ships recently for one of the campaigns/missions - I think it was one for Japanese ships.

 

I don't recall if the ARP ships had snowflakes on them or not.  If they did then that was the other time that the ships have been played since they were unlocked.

 

Being able to mount camos on them would be nice.   I've set up the options to now show the ARP camos in-game as I think they are an eye-sore (beauty is in the eye of the beholder).  The same goes with the Black versions of the ships - being able to mount something other than just one camo would be nice (but not the end of the world).

I'd like to see the North & West Dragon ships for sale to complete my collection (in NA where I have them).

A camo bonus would also be nice for the ARP & Dragon ships - you do still sometimes see them in battle.

I think the issue why there is no camo bonuses on these ships is than when the first appeared in game the only camo's available was type 1 and 2...
