Every single camouflage out there -- but one -- has -3% to detectability, +4% to dispersion, or both.  Many of them offer additional benefits such as commander, XP, FXP, or credit boosts in various amounts and combinations, but those are stacked on top of at least one of the two items camo is supposed to do.

The one exception is New Year 2017.  All it says is "+200% to Free XP earned in the battle."  Is this a line or two left off, or is it the only paint scheme that, you know, doesn't make the ship harder to spot?

You can check by mounting it, open the ship parameters to view the detection range, then demount it and check the same parameter.

My understanding is that all it does is give you 200% FXP though.

No performance bonuses for the New Year's Camo.  Just a boost to Free XP.

 

Use at your own risk.

No. There's also type 2.

Type 2 has the +4% to dispersion (only) so at least it does something.  I was including that in the "harder to spot" figuring bigger dispersion means the guys on the rangefinders are getting confused, kind of like dazzle camo.

It doesn't have any of those benefits, so barring the bonus FXP, you're pretty much hull-naked.

On the other hand, it's quite useful for grinding that sweet, sweet FXP. And it looks fabulous. So much so, you'll be the center of attention at the Warship Ball!

...So dodging's a must.
