WG please allow us to sell Type 20 camo back for doubloons!

With new space themed skins those of us that already own Type 20 camos are reluctant to spend the whole 8k just for cosmetic upgrade.  If we could sell existing Type 20 camo, we would be motivated to “upgrade” our camos, and you will make profit on this.

No item can be sold back for Doubloons unless WG made a big mistake against the player.   Maybe credits, but Doubloons...keep dreaming.

I would buy all the 4 cruiser camos if they let me sell the 4 type 20 camos on my cruisers. But ain't happening and I wont be buying ;)

Would even buy all the other camos of BBs and DDs if they let me  buy them without having those ships. But sadly I dont have any of the tier 10 DDs or BBs.

Be serious...they already got the money for your dubloons, they profit nothing in giving players a trade....

Well when it comes to space skins, I currently own GK, Zao, and Moskva all with type 20 camo...  If they allowed me to sell it for doubloons, I would pay them 9,000 doubloons to get space skin upgrade for all three.  But 24,000 doubloons?  24,000 doubloons on top of 15,000 doubloons I already paid for?  Nope.  So they can choose to make money on this, or not.

WG have made their pitch and the only thing that will change their minds is if the camos do not sell terribly well (and even then I'm not sure they will change anything as that would be like admitting they made a mistake - WG don't make mistakes! lol). Yep, a lot of hard work went into them, I think most look great! However, the work has been done - now it's all down to making that work pay off, and it's a fine balance.

 

It is a shame about the price, as we are talking $15 over the usual with no additional benefit - maybe if they changed the 100% experience earned in battle to 100% free experience earned in battle, it would have been more palatable to many(?) But they have made their choice(?)

 

I have just got both the Gearing and Z-52 so haven't bought camo yet. I'm in a better position than many who have already bought the Type 20 camo, but even I can't bring myself to be happy about spending $15 extra for no reason than a funky space look. They still look sweeeet though lol.

It's your loss, you gotta read things before buying them.

As others have said, WG is not going to buy back paint for doubloons. What they might do (and would be the same end result you're looking for) is offer to swap the type 20 you already have, for the new space theme, for the 3k difference. I have no idea how likely this would be (probably very un-), but that would be the only thing you might look forward to

It's not a reading comprehension failure, it's a fortune telling crystal ball failure. Tier X permaflages were released more than a year ago and, according to the Space Battles intro vid, WG started this in January with the first leaks being released less than a month ago.

I really liked the Halloween crates of last year, but considering the backlash against everything like that and the base price of these camos I can understand why they didn't do that for this event. But, imo they should have offered the camos for sale in the premium shop as they have for the Richy/Gascan Republican camos where the stand alones are 8000 doubloons equivalent in price but they could also offer bundles by class and nation, that have a discount and maybe even offer a 'Space Armada' bundle of all 9 for 50% off.

lol no.  quit being cheap.  buy the camos and help WG stay in business!   

I am not being cheap.  I am planning to buy the Paris camouflage, because I never got the chance to get Type 20 camo for Republique. I am ok with dishing out 8k for it.  But getting three more of those skins at full price when I already dropped 15,000 doubloons on those ships, I can’t justify that.

Go to customer support and request a refund for one of your camos you don’t want. They will allow 4 refunds a calendar year for mistaken purchases. Read the refund policy to get more details. If you mention in their refund request you plan to buy one of the new space camos, then their is a good chance they will refund you the doubloons. It doesn’t hurt to ask.

Switching the 100% xp to 100% free xp is actually worse. Once you start stacking bonuses, the free xp gap becomes apparent.

 

In regards to the camo cost, why do a doubloons refund if wg can do a rebate where if you already own a type 20 camo, then the 8k doubloons space camo would be deducted to 3k doubloons.

 

Doing refunds seems more complicated than offering a discount instead.

I did that, they officially refuse to issue any refunds when it comes to camo.

I don't understand why they don't just offer us a discount for the new camos for owners of the old premium camos.  No way am I going to spend another 8k on top of the 5k for the camo I already own.

 

It's almost like...they don't want more doubloons from us... :o
