Roma - please change the Kobayashi camo, before it's too late

Ok, so this is mostly a matter of personal opinion and taste. But I feel rather strongly about it and want to check if other members of the community share the same view.

The Kobayashi camo on the upcoming BB Roma has the right idea, the lion head as symbol for Italian kingship together with the flowing tricolore bands and the white background looks fantastic. But why ruin it with the Asian letters and the rectangles which simply don't fit on a European warship ?

Give us a different version of that fantastic camo, with the letters and rectangles removed, I did a quick and dirty photoshop of just the bow to show how it would look, clean up the rest of the ship, remove the letters and rectangles from the mid and the turrets and we will have one of the most iconic and beautiful camos in the game.

Blimey. And I thought some of the camo schemes we've been given were a bit headache-inducing (Frosty Fir doesn't look particularly frosty to me).

I love that you didn't even bring up the huge water tower on top of the superstructure.

the only thing I don't like about this camo is the huge boiler...hopefully there will be a mod to make it invisible (at least for myself :Smile_playing: )

Yes, out of everything that huge beer can thing offends me the most :Smile_teethhappy:

 

Makes no sense to me why a European ship that went nowhere near the Far East has such a wacky camo but I guess WG want some lols

The New Years camos remind me of toothpaste...

I just want to be able to equip such a camo and then turn of the visual aspect of it to its regular prem camo so i can keep using the kobayashi camo bonuses.

Italian actually had many quite smart camouflage patterns in use during the war, there are even books written and published about them. Why would they not use those instead?:cap_hmm:

Ok, this is not Roma, of course, but you get the point - Methinks it looks much better too...:cap_like:

Damn, while I have nothing about these Kobyashi camos, this one would be so much better with all the black parts removed (in fact the Japanese letters are less of an issue - but I would get rid of ALL the black squares, not just the small ones on the front. Keeping the side white would look so much better).

These camos make it seem to me like Kobyashi is so overly-infatuated with the duplicate function in photoshop.

"Look at all the squares I can make! and diagonally, they look even BETTER!"

That Kobe guy is an "artist", so he will not let them change it just like that.

 

Most potential buyers will not even know about that silly beercan anyway, until it is too late.

Paint diarrhea comes to mind... Supplements nicely 2016 New Year's camo... I don't even want to ask... We probably should be happy it is not entirely green with red / white dots splashed all over it.

i think there are two possibilities. either Kobayashi is trolling WG hard or the idea of the camo is to cause seizures to any enemy that is looking at you

With luck when the water tower gets hit the contents  will spill out and wash the UGLY camo away..

That is probably just a clever ploy for some additional fire-extinguishing capability without having to use the repair-party consumable... :cap_like:

I dont like it. Does not fit on the warship at all. Feels like it does not belong on the ship.

That's a great idea! Every TK should have mendatory pink camo slapped on his ship for the duration of penalty!

Speaking as a relatively new player, that disgusting camo has completely destroyed my desperate urge to eventually own this ship.

Yeah @Drasnighta I hesitate to use the word "Ugly" in conjunction with any Italian ship (since I've always been a fan), but I'm afraid it has to be said.:Smile-angry:

This just ain't right! :Smile_amazed:

There will still be a "normal" camo for it but the kobayashi camo will almost certainly have a better bonus set.

That is why i want it to be able to be toggled off without losing the bonus.

Nothing is changed its just turned off.

Otherwise if there is some contractual obligation of some sort then wargaming should offer regular camo's with the same bonus for free to the people who own a kobayashi camo.

And if thats not an option because of the same contract then wargaming should look into getting new lawyers because they screwed up getting painted into a corner like that should that be the case.
