I've received an Italian Cruiser. Is it permanent or temporary?

First time I can participate in such an event. I won the tier V Raimondo Montecuccoli. I noticed the ship has no XP unlocks. The hull and gunnery mods have already been unlocked. What happens to any XP, upgrades and the Commander of this ship in the future? Can I safely invest time and credits in this ship, or will this all be temporary?

You keep the ship, and it functions like any tech tree ship regarding XP and captain.

Currently it doesn't show it's follow-up Tier 6 ship in the Modules menu, but when I build up any XP on the ship, will I be able to use that to unlock the Tier 6 once the Italian Cruisers are released?

Thanks a lot for your quick replies.

 

Another question, is there a way to see how the ship looks with the permanent camouflage which can be bought for tokens, before I actually buy the camouflage?

In case of the Italian cruisers, it's a uniform grey-ish blue colour.

Congrats, you lucky chap. 

Interested in exchanging Monte for my Genova? ^^

Thanks for the congratulations. Not sure what I'd do with two Genova's though, so I think I rather keep my Montecuccoli. I hope the loot dice grants you more luck with future containers.

Thanks, so do i. 

I usually keep all premiums, regardless of tier or how bad they are, but i would trade in the Genova without a seconds hesitation for the Monte.

Considering I've only recently started playing again, I'm still playing low tier ships. Got a few Tier 5 ships. Considering anything of tier 4 and below is pretty much useless for event progression, I'm happy with both the Tier 5 ships I got for free. Does help me progressing the event a tad faster. :) 

 

I love free presents. And it's not even Christmas yet :P

I've made this picture of Zara earlier today. Doesn't she look gorgeous? <3

This is her in the permaflage that you can get with tokens. It's exactly the same colour for Montecuccoli and Trento, and I bet for the tier 8 as well.

 

On a sidenote I really like these "camouflages". It looks better than most of the dazzle schemes in my opinion. In fact, as it turned out the Trento dazzle camouflage that you can get for dubloons seems to be historically accurate, but why would I buy that if I can get an also historically accurate plain scheme instead?

Does the permaflage also affect the deck or will it look the same as without permaflage?

I like her, and do pretty good in them. Having played glass cannon type ships is a pre though, and you need to focus your SAP on anything soft (upper structure). The smoke is AWESOME! It saved my arse every time I use it.

I do even better in the Genova in a weird way... not sure why. My stats in both so far below...

Exactly! lol.

 

But still kinda insulting since it does require special copper pieces to get.

 

Not sure why a colour changer isnt a thing yet but the option to turn of non-historical camos.

 

Hell even making more unique historical camo schemes would be nice.

I think you would have to offer another ship along with the Genova to make that deal fair (and not the Krasny Kreme).......

I can understand that - I sold my Krasny at one stage and got it back in an Xmas container.

 

Bad pennies always come back.

On the italian smoke...

 

I had three enemy ships about 10 km infront of me and I felt the need to get out of there.

 

Popped smoke.

Full speed.

Full rudder.

 

I got away without taking  a single hit.:Smile_Default:

 

I've also used it to rush  in and torp a couple of times.

The other way to view the permanent camouflage (or any to be honest)  is to select your ship in dock, open up the exterior tab and then left mouse click the camouflage you want to look at - it will then be shown on your ship in dock.

 

The Raimondo Montecuccoli does not appear to have a permanent camouflage available in the port - the other ones do (T6-T8).
