"repair cost" wording on camo and flags needs changed to "Sortie Cost"

shouldnt this wording be changed to "Sortie Cost" given that it costs the same for a ship to take part in a match, regardless of if it comes back at full health or gets sunk?

 

would have put this in suggestions, but it seems more like an update artefact thats been overlooked, rather than a new feature.

I always found it a bit stupid that a lost battleship cost the same as fuel and a few torpedoes for a dd that survives

having different costs between classes would introduce a "path of least resistance" to make a given class more profitable to play and complicate the economy since the economy would need to account for every ship, not just class and tier.

 

it used to account for damage taken, but it meant that players followed the POTL to the edge of the map, to run down the clock to stay afloat, or wouldnt involve themselves in the game because of damage costs.

 

im pointing this out as the old language communicates the wrong game mechanics to players who will assume hanging back to avoid getting damaged will save them money.
