I'm an active player. A paying one, as well.

 

I have completely no issues with signals as there are now plenty of ways of obtaining them (armory for credits is probably the best example).

 

However, the camo situation is just god-awful. There aren't enough events to obtain them, and the way "premium" containers are designed is not cost-effective if you just want to target camos. Besides, price:reward ratio in most of those containers is just terrible.

Armory offers some camos, true, but they are overpriced and most of them are simply trash.

 

We need more ways and more options to obtain camos or a massive price reduction for the poop ones available for coal.

Sure, I'll probably get a few, no doubt there. But that doesn't change the fact that, let's say, armory offers nothing but a massive coal sink for some of the worst camos in the game.

What tiers and ships are you playing? Using mostly premium ships that come with their own camo (which admittedly is not as good as others) and not playing T10 much I have not much trouble stockpiling camouflages. Resetting and regrinding ship lines for research points is more or less the only way for me to spend large amounts of camo.

With some minor compulsive disorder I tend to immediately "eliminate" small stacks of camo whenever I receive them, so the UI is not clusterfracked and the camo stacks quite nicely. Also it is easier to find specific camo, e.g. extra credits or captain XP when you have fewer stacks.

 

I admit though that I have never bought any camo in the shop (apart as part of crates) as the prices seem excessive, even while using coupons.

I have the same complaint for signals as they are expensive in the armory and after battle costs are too high. But I am okay with camos except the silver camos with ridiculous steel price tag.

i have the same problem :P

i did sell around a 100 million credits worth of the lesser camo's a while back because i never used them...

But i do think they are quite expensive if you have to buy from the armoury, and don't we get 2 camo's for every T5-7 for the anniversary in a couple of weeks.

That's how bad it is for me. Cannot really regrind anything as I would probably kill myself trying to regrind with credits camos.

What kind of containers do you use? I usually always go for the flags and camo container since they changed try your luck a couple of years back and the normal camo is stacking so high I usually even sell the single benefit ones.

Dude its simple, if you are already spending and want more good camos - wait for the events such as this one currently where they are packed in the crates that might drop some nice extra value stuff, buy a bunch of those, you will likely get the stuff and a cra*load of camos...

I have over a thousand camos and they increase all the time.

I am surprised that you have a lack of them.

I guess you are the target audience for RB. Wants to do it, but doesn't have patience and resources, except credit card :cap_like:

i have to confess that back in the day we were thrown camos like it was nothing, but i would get if i started only a year or so ago i would have a massive camo issue. I still use and have hundreds of camos from events from years ago. I think i got around 1k camos left, but after that its gonna be rough to grind ect.

How can you have over 5000 games and not be swimming in camo's? Are you overusing them?

I do have to admit, since a year or something WG isn't spamming out camo's anymore. But be4 that... There were events you could collect hunderds.

I have left 200 European, 200 New Year Streamer, 170 Victorious, 190 Union Jack, 350 Frosty Fir Tree, 100 This is your day, 190 Ocean soul. And that's just the once over 100. I use XP camo's on ships i grind, stock camo on premium ships and on ships i don't grind, just play for fun, i just buy the 22500 Type 5 camo's. It's a waste to use special camo's on ships you don't grind, like T10 ships for example.

I seem to be forever selling large stockpiles of camos for credits, but before the Russian Cruiser split when us Moskva premium camo owners felt aggrieved, I was buying the premium camos for any tier 10 ships I got. That wont ever happen again now so I wont be selling any in the future (unless they look fugly!)

Agree. I am constantly running out of camos. Currently the only "cost effective" way of obtaining them is doing specific grinds during specific times which is sometimes impossible if you have commitments IRL.

 

E.g., I certainly won't grind any T4-T7 ships for camos during the anniversary because I don't have time for that mindless coop grind (neither do I find it fun).

 

@MrConway @Crysantos could we expect some decent camos for credits in the armory any time soon?

I am already thinking on which ship I will put my free upcoming permanent T9 anniversary camo on. ( not sure if we get one or even 2 in total). Enjoyed the permanent Christmas  T8 camo’s during PR event and also the free US & Fra cruisers space camo’s before that. Quite a lot of my ships have free perm camo’s now and with the option to make the fantasy camo look like regular is just perfect.. For sure 50 or 100% xp bonuses are small vs the multi 100%+ bonuses some one-time-use camo’s give but it really saves money..

 

Bad side affect..I stopped buying high tier perm camo’s. Have 4 Tier 9 paid perm camo’s and 0 T10’s  ( have the free HSF Yamato) which after Moskwa seems the way to go.

Why not t5? 

T5 do exist in small numbers. I have one for Visby and one for Montebroccoli. The only permacamo below T5 I ever had was for Rhein :Smile_sad:
