Amids the malcontent regarding the X-mas content, I want to express my gratitude & approval for the HMS Ajax camouflage we can earn.

@MrFingers I'd like if they add "perma" historical camos for literally every silver ship in the game (form tier 1, maybe 2 all the way to tier 10). As you said, i can even don't have any modifiers, but it will be cool to have. Maybe they could do it so that you need to grind it after your ship got elite status (just as you proposed). I'd really like to... sealclub... i mean, take out my kongo (which i kept) for that.

 

Besides, i don't play WT, but i do play Il-2 1946 and there are tons and tons of realistic and what-if camos for the planes (the what-if are possible camos that look realistic but of course were never used, like the camos for the Horten for example). Plus, i'd like if they add a feature like in WT where you can choose the degree of weathering of your skin; because rust is actually the worst enemy for ship (even worse than Smolensk). Just look at how rusty is my New Mexico.

I have a magazine about Scharnhorst and Gneisenau and at the end there is a section that shows all the camos that those two ships had over their service; however i can't show it here because almost every camo has Swastikas on it (i counted 58); tho i can show you the front of the Magazine (it only exist in Italian). Actually did you know that the left facing swastika (the mirror version of the one of the Nazi party) was actually used a lot during ww1 by almost every country (even UK and the USA) as a symbol of good luck.

 

Here is the magazine

Probably due to more severe competition as people are scrambling to get their directives done in time.

I notice a lot more killstealing in coop as well.

This set of missions is pretty easy and quick if done in a scenario or co-op. My best ships for this just happen to be the Leander and Perth as they both have smoke. It would be even better if the camouflage changed the ships name to Ajax too. I did the last part in co-op and just created a division, invited people, and if if no-one joined it still counted as a division. Neat. Co-op is pretty good just to knock snowflakes off LOL.

Glad about that. I don't play  in divisions, so I can complete this mission! Weeeee!

 

The recent RAF camo for the Polish ship was nice looking, too.

Is this a joke? Leander camo made you so happy you had to express gratitude in the mids of the most blatant money grab by WG and WoWS?

I think his opening sentence sets his stall out well on that point.

While I do concur with Fingers post, as is often the case, if I were to do that in the face of all else WG is doing, I would need somebody help me tie a dozen (thorny!) Roses around a heavy brick. So yeah more of that, less of "normal WG"; in fact I advise excision in toto in that regard.

If it’s bad, they’ll know (and knowing they do... I tore them a new one over the Gorizia-lies without a single grain of remorse), but if something is good, they also have the right to know that, and that such things should be acknowledged.

If it would have been something for Fiji, I would have rejoiced. Leander, meh, never gonna play it.

But at least they made one player happy!

Yes, but as it is tied to River Plate fight, Fiji did not participate, only Ajax ( Leander), Exeter and Achilles (Perth).

Kill stealing is just the same as every time a mission of any kind involving kills is in queue - horrible and you either jump the wagon or are left standing on the roadside while the a** are laughing at you....

HMNZS Achilles is also a Leander class cruiser.

He's right, you know. Perth was part of the Amphion sub class of Leander class cruisers (she has two funnels, rather than the Leander's one large trunk funnel).

Oh, do. Great fun in any Tier VI Operation/Scenario battle.

EDIT: yes, that means I want my pink HMS Berwick and HMS Kenya.

There's a very nice white/red stripe Mediterranean camo for RN G and H Class DDs which would look nice on Gallant:
