I had seen a few weeks ago some picture of an camo like the flag of the USA and thought it look ok'ish (for those who don't know it: I'm not an American and so I'm not into that patriotism stuff)

But it's a Cleveland Eagle...

Anyways: thx for a free camo for a T8. Since I like to play T7+ most of the time it's always cool to get some free stuff for those ships.

It's a standart T8 camo with -3% to detection range/+4% to dispersion and -10% repair costs and +50% XP.

Too many edges, I like smooth lines. That's why the Scharnhorst is pure eye candy to me.

IIRC WG said during one of their recent videos that they drew heavily from the Art Deco style of the Chrysler building for inspiration when creating that skin.  While I am an American and am all about it, I have to say that I dislike this particular skin.  But I am generally not a fan of skins that alter the structural lines of the ships, i.e. the halloween and space skins.

I'm not a huge fan of gaudy camos, would have been happier with something cleaner.  Whatever though, free premium camo.

I don't mind fantasy camos, but recent camos have been.. little bit childish.

I am not big fan of the Space camos and the freedom camos.

Not just the concept wise, but also, from artistic elements' point of view.

Too many edges and straight lines and It's not even creative either.

So..yea...I'm disappointed too, but I know WG is much more capable and this is only fraction of their work.

BTW, I really liked the Halloween camos

how did you get that camo already? Didn't think it's campaign./event was happening yet?

Never mind I see it now. Randoms only :Smile_sad:

I'm exactly the same way, I wasn't a fan of the Roma beer can camo for the same reasons as the rest.  Just too over-the-top for me.

If I could just get the Victory Salute scheme for all my perma-camos, I'd be perfectly happy.

@Deviathan That cammo looks like a Cincinnati Bengals cammo which makes it cool lol.

Well now you've got me wondering what a Panthers color scheme would look like.  On that one, darker shades would be black, lighter gray would be silver and then orange would be light blue.  I like it.

Charlotte is such a beautiful city. I went to a Panthers Redskins game there years ago. Beautiful stadium.

The Cleveland Freedom Camouflage is the final prize of the American Cruisers Collection, which you can gather by opening regular Containers or buying Freedom Containers.

Never mind!  I was confused.  Baltimore camo.

The Baltimore version is for completing the Fourth of July mission ("Born in the USA".)  That is what AdmiralThunder meant when he wrote "Randoms only" (he was referring to this mission.)

Is it just me,

or does the American flag camo look gaudy and unpleasing to the eye (Texas, Cleve, Balti) … maybe the Russians have preconceived stereotypes about US tastes and preferences … please don't tell me it true or deserved :)

Oddly, I really like the Canadian flag camo on the Haida … there is definitely something else at work here :)

There is nothing worse than Kobayoshi camos IMHO

This is too much over the top for my taste too. A WW2 era camo would be fine for my ships.
