  1. Just in case you wanted to have a general discussion about a pretty general topic, premium ship camo, head on over to “off topic” where somebody moved it. There are 5 other discussions that truely have nothing to do with wows. Pretty sure ship camo is relevant.

    You completely missed his point and are agreeing with something that was never said. Copy pasted the wrong stuff?

    Permanent camo idea for premium ships

    That’s a lot of what-ifs and since 1) the GC has been out for 2 years unchanged 2) it’s a premium ship outside of any Italian line it could have held up 3) GC’s on again off again teaser availability reeks of obvious cash grab because obvious is obvious 4) there have been 200 game priorities higher than Italian BB line 5) the entire game meta evolves all the time affecting all ships (some more or for better, some less or for worse) so a ship that is strong today might not be in future. 6) even if GC, Kami, Nik, Fujin, etc were twice as strong, like Stalingrad levels of crazy OP, it still wouldn’t really matter because there are not very many of them on the server and unlike Stalingrad none of them pretend to be something they aren’t. 7) easier for everyone to leave them alone and never sell them again basically none of what you said applies. The tech tree counterpart angle is a good one though. Some players have played well in it. Others either don’t click with the boat or are pissed ( EULA wavers) they gambled tons of real money and didnt get one. Better for WG to admit the Santa crates were a rip off this year, the drop rates were hilariously poor for many, and that they will test all future premium ships more before releasing them in the future. Better to preserve the trust of past, current and future cash supporters than make a mountain out of a mole hill. Folks bought a tier 5 experience and bumping a ship with gigantic weaknesses that’s been out for 2 years up so that it gets utterly thrashed by tier 8 ships is truely one of the worst ideas I can remember. Any thoughts on the camo?

    Warspite - T6 Monster

    I remember Friant being modern for tier 3 but artificially limited so as to not over perform. 13 second reload at tier 3... agony. Great torpedos tho. I liked warspite but prefer Arizona. Rage sold it years ago (stupid I know) after burning down for the 211th time by smoke camping kutuzovs before the smoke nerf. My overall favorite Tier 6 premium is T61 followed by DeGrasse

    USS Wichita in the premium shop!

    If I pay money for a tier 8 will I have a tier 8 or... Fool me once... Hard pass until GC “issue” gets sorted.

    It’s the communty shenanigans tolerance litmus test. They want to see if this turd will Float or flush. Flush it.

    French are crazy for roosters iirc. coolest camo ever is the black stuff. For torpedo play my black ash will tear you a new one with its huge alpha and look good while doing it For pounding a group of reds I think a black mass would fit better with strong bow and enthusiastic secondary action Also like the Christmas camo.

    Well it seems to ring more true than ”Something something something.... Will try to avoid changes to premium ships at all costs....”

    Only seen it on us cruisers. Weird looking stuff. Think it was actually supposed to be a huge eagle on the bow. Aimed at the Smokey and the Bandit crowd I guess.

    Permanent camo idea for premium ships

    We’ve all seen beer can camo, school bus camo, space camo, gigantic chicken and shark camo. What we really need is corporate camo. Give it a fun name like “fine print” or “greasy lawyer” camo. Here is the concept: It’s like gift wrapping boat in newspaper but instead of the sports page use the comic section. For our purposes... ITS THE EULA!! Anybody who sees them in match will be constantly reminded that it can be tier bumped, cuz reasons, and even real money investments and the trust it represents can be thrown away.

    Warspite - T6 Monster

    I think warspite would be a great Tier 7. Wink wink... Could give it newspaper gift wrap camouflage with the EULA printed all over it. Rofl!

    Still trolling ? Maybe just spamming threads by simply cutting and pasting same nonsense from the 33 other threads it’s in?

    very nice. Looks like it could be challenging. Say hello to our newest soon-to-be tier 9 cash premium. Will go from decent to junk. Hard pass until GC gets figured out.

    possible solution for GC situation

    Well said Rusty. I hate that this is even a discussion to be had. Feels like a test, like I’m being given some gut-check on what I can and can’t accept AND ITS OVER A STUPID VIDEO GAME. Lol.

    Out of thumb ups. This is perfect though.
