Since I stumbled over it on reddit, I thought it might be a good idea to forward it to the forums.

 

In the news article from Dec. 27th 2017 WG announced the winner of the Normandie camo contest along with the comment that:

 

Quote

The winning camouflage will be up for grabs in an exciting chain of missions expected in March 2018 and will be available to all players.  

 

Source

 

Now, March is almost over and ... it'd be a bit tight to squeeze an 'exciting chain of missions' into the remaining 3 days, don't you think.

 

 

So, @Crysantos or @MrConway any news on that one?

Emphasis on "Expected". Wouldn't be surprised if it will be delayed to have unified campaign with the designed patches or something like that

Yeah I read that too, but at least ... well if WG knows that they won't make it in time (end of March), would it hurt to proactively give out a small news piece, saying that this specific chain of missions is going to be delayed, because Space battles ate too much time or something along the lines.

Chances are there was a hope of "they will not notice"

That's one hell of a camouflage. Almost as good as Jingles in his cosplay uniform. :Smile-_tongue:

Because of that contest I haven't spent my doubloons for a permanent camo on the Normandie. And I'm keeping the ship to replace my Cleveland as the go to for T6 ops.

Congratz on winning the contest! Would've been a shame if WG botched that up!

Whahaha proactivity and WG :Smile_teethhappy::Smile_teethhappy::Smile_teethhappy:

Oh man you gave me a good laugh

 

Seriously though, of course I agree with that there should've been a small statement. But from the looks of it, it will appear soon, so at least that's positive.

Don't say that out too loudly, otherwise I might not be allowed to run another one :Smile_hiding:

Sorry mate, but WG gave me those doubloons for playing Clan Wars. No money to make here. :Smile_coin:

Not that I haven't spent my coins on this game, I'm too afraid to tally my spending for pixel ships.

Since the mission requirements are easy, the fastest you can earn the camo is 5 days. Not bad, not too grindy.
