Good to see some historical (or historical plausible) camouflages getting in the game at last, instead of kindergarten graduation drawings.

Nice one. My only query is that if these camos considered special ones why not the give little more or @ least different bonuses. That would be a nice add on and make them more attractive to buy imho.

 

In the other hand I've got now (a proper) Gloire in my port ;D

Please also consider others in the future, here's a couple of screenshots from the excellent colour documentary The Fighting Lady showing some of the brighter US camouflages used in the Pacific...

We offer a variety of things for free and to earn - also permanent camouflages (e.g. currently the FR DD ones in the Armory for the event currency), in this case they're part of our premium shop content.

The problem with that aspect is that we're already in a situation where players might like a certain camouflage more than others from a visual point of view, but pick another one for higher bonuses. For the permanent camouflages we try to avoid that conflict in most cases and you can freely pick between your favourite designs.

@Crysantos

Will there be a possibility in the future to buy these nice camos ingame with doubloons?

Potentially but I can't make any promises right now :Smile_honoring:

Well, I can understand that point, but on ther other hand, visuals are pointsless, sorry.

 

For example, the first time I played my pink ARP Myoko I thought, what an ugly ships, I would get eye cancer from it, but then the battle really starts and I don't care anymore about the visuals, but about the performance of the ship (which I really like). I think you get my point.

 

In the heat of the battle visuals are not important and at the result screen the economic bonus counts. So a visual camo (because same boni like the regular perma camo) do not add any value to the game. They do not motivate me to spend money or to complete a mission if I already have a perma camo. But I'm looking forward for the special camos for Shinonome and Graf Spee, because they have other stats.

So... if these are permanent camouflages why are they not permanently available.. huh?

There are loads of one off permanents like Halloween/Space each year (plus Arctic/Russian/French ) that tend never to appear again and they become collectibles

 

I suspect Black Friday will be the same with different ships this year

Uhm right, only thing is this time I had no idea this was limited time only cause they had conveniently put that information on the 'News' page. Sorry, WG, I just don't have the time to go through all the news items I rely on the premium shop to tell me this type of info. WoT can manage it, why can't WoWS?

I agree, information relating to anything that is likely to be a 1 time only offer should be made clear on the news item, would be useful if the emailed newsletter could include all news items too to save people having to check the website every day

Yes, we do - it's a significant bonus if you consider that it's permanent and the accumulated effect on a long-term basis. If you don't feel that is worth it for you, you can rather rely on consumable camos or cheaper permanent ones - that's the beauty of this system, you get to choose.

On long term basic you play high tier premium ships for credit grinding. I think +35% on a Tier 6 is a nice, but little boni. Nothing more.

 

They should have been a mission reward, but that pricetag is just annoying and just reduce any motivation to pay for this game.

I would rather see it as an additional option if you do play a lot on that Tier and want to increase the bonus - if you play on higher Tiers, you have permanent camouflages available on those, too. We always have to consider the impact of such bonuses on the entire economy because if we hand out too much, it will have a negative effect and then we'd have to make economical changes to the entire game to compensate for that.

 

We always have the option to introduce them also through different means in the future. Like I said, this is an added option, neither mandatory nor a new price point for permanent camouflages on that Tier.

I'd rather see some real incentives to play the middle tiers more. Real incentives, that means that the NTC/RB doesn't count.
