I bought permoflage for my Pensacola, Fuso, and Queen Elizabeth.

The QE historical camo looks way nicer than the snowy camo I’ve got, and I really enjoy this ship...my most played B.B.!

The Fuso camo looks so bad [aas], and I used to play Fuso a lot.

I bought for my Pepsi because I love to play this ship!:cap_win:

In addition, Cleveland camo looks like a good buy

you get Tier 8 and 6 camo after the split. 500 Doubloon for 4000 worth of camo

The issue is that T8 permanent camo is not worth the money, because most people would not want to pay for getting bottom tier.

I'm free-to-play, but I have enough won doubloons for a Tier 6 permacamo. Needless to say, it goes on the Cleveland.

From there I must decide whether to splash out and pay money to this game for the first time to equip my other T6 to T8 ships. With Ranked beginning tonight, the Varyag mission needing a 20K XP haul, some premium time won (including the FTP compensation) and IIRC a bonus XP weekend, it's a good time to consider it.

Nothing, because I don't need such things when I have plenty of captain XP, FXP and Credit boosting camo just sitting in my inventory.

This game is playable with free account, but you may miss the opportunity and time.

It took me more than 2000 battle to get my first Tier X shimakaze when I was free to play, and I failed to finish the mission to unlock free Kamikaze because I I did not have premium account. 

If you plan to spend $$, get premium account first

Fair point. I mainly buy for their looks. You can install mods to change the look, but iam just too lazy

That's my take on it too.  If I have a ship worth spending 500-1000 doubloons on then it's probably already elited - what good is the extra EXP?  I am actively grinding a bunch of ships and somehow still have 47,000,000 credits too, so what good is that?

Getting her captain to 19 points? Generating XP convertible to free? Both?

Right.  The first one can be done with flags  or premium ships (which I prefer since they can do multiple captains) and the second one seems ridiculous since I already have millions of floating EXP that I won’t spend cash to convert.

I bought the perma-camo for my Mogami. 

I did it mainly for the looks.

Gotta hand it to WG. Perma-camo sale linked with a doubloon sale disguised as a ship sale, is a stroke of genius.

I spent more today than I have since Xmas.

Flags run out, and not everyone has a mid-high tier Premium. For the free-to-play crowd, doing enough of the right missions sufficiently well should have given some of them enough for at least one camo. Given the benefits to be gained from putting it on the Cleveland under the current (or rather, pending) circumstances, I'll take it any day.

My Cleveland is very much NOT elited right now, and things are only going to be worse when she gets up to Tier VIII.

That is a good deal, but I feel guilty when I play a ship that only has a 50% XP bonus (tiers 5-8 permanent camo). I have around 1,200 single use came left, so I have plenty (not including type 1,2 and 5). As it is I mostly play my premium ships, or those that already have a permanent camouflage I earned through game. The Tier 9 are the best deals, but I hardly play them. Maybe for the Lyon?

Bought permas for all the ships I'm currently grinding and didn't have already (MN St. Louis, Z-23, Hatsuharu, Gadjah Madah), otherwise got the New Orleans (didn't get the free perma) and Pensacola for the line split, Lyon, Mogami and Roon because those are seriously fun ships and lastly Amagi since it's the only T8 BB I didn't have the perma for and I plan on playing her in ranked.

Only Tier 10 ships worthy of getting permanent camo for me, usually that's the tier i could lose credits, especially the Yamato and Montana.

True, but $1 is small amount of money

How did you buy camo for ships you don’t have?

it would make grinding easier with premium camo, especially for tier 7~9. 

 

Wish they have tier 10 perm camo onsale!

Akizuki, it has a 19 point captain already and I don't need to burn better camos on it anymore.

Fletcher, still grinding Kappa commander for it but it's a good boat and I will definitely use it once it gets there.

There are others I would have bought but I either already bought or already have a better alternate for like the Halloween ones.

Most players have 100's if not more 1 shot camos that provide much greater boosts...and captain training is for premiums....:Smile_teethhappy:

And converting xp is not really good for the game, when you see people using it to bypass low tier and learn nothing.....unless of course you like the high tier targets...:Smile_glasses:

Only ships I would buy it for are 8-9, with the huge dubloon discount you can get right now if you have Texas, Anshan, Graf the actual cost is less than 1/4th the price...If I played 8-9 much, it might be worth it.
