Just a heads up for anyone with one of these 3 ships who does not have the Kobayashi camo for it and has wanted it. They are being sold in the Premium Shop right now (shows available for 6 days). Not cheap but it is basically a T10 perma camo (ugly as heck but good benefits) for your T7 or T8 ship.

I didn't have it for Kii (had other 2) so took the opportunity to grab it. Might actually make me play it more as it will earn really well with this camo. Also, it does not appear that these are available in the port for doubloons either as I looked for Kii''s there 1st. Premium Shop only it appears.

As said, it is basically a T10 perma camo for these 3 ships. They all share the same benefits...

  • -3% Detection Range (sea)
  • +4% Enemy Gun Dispersion
  • +20% Credits Earned
  • -50% Service Fee
  • +100% XP Earned

Ashitaka - $27.75 USD

https://na.wargaming.net/shop/wows/main/8245/

Kii - $31.88 USD

https://na.wargaming.net/shop/wows/main/8246/

Roma - $31.88 USD

https://na.wargaming.net/shop/wows/main/8244/

Hope it helps.

Yay! Now I can have a beer can! (NOT)

Besides being stupid and fugly, when the Roma gets on fire, (and it does), the beer gets hot. Can you imagine? Hot beer! Yuck!

I'll keep my Roma with the original camo. Ships looks good enough.

Thanks for the heads up.  Got the Kii camo just to satisfy the completionist in me.  I might actually take it out for a drive a little bit more than the Mass now.

I wish the large white characters on the Ashitaka's Kobayashi camo were the right way up. It looks off when compared to the smaller yellow/orange characters.

Question: If you have the Roma without the beer can, then buy the camo, does the beer can appear on the normal Roma?

Ashitaka got some nice buffs to damage output, she is actually high on the WR charts now.

I'd actually pay real money to get Roma's beer can cammo out of the game.  WG, if you want to make real money charge $39 if you want it, $50 if you don't and you'll be raking it in. :Smile_great:

I've always thought the +100% experience with premium camo was a bit of a scam.  Additional experience on a premium ship is useless unless you convert it to free experience, so all WG is giving you is an opportunity to spend more money.  I would be much more impressed if WG gave us a camo that increased free experience earnings directly.

I once thought that way.  But the +100% XP also directly impacts the amount of Commander's XP and Free XP earned, since IIRC those things are based off how much XP you earned in a battle.

Good point.  Still would love to see camo that give a direct free experience bonus, though.

There are some.  But the reality is that a +100% XP bonus *does* give you +100% FXP (and +100% CO XP), since you increase the base from which those are calculated by 100%.  Changing a camo from being +100% XP to +100% FXP is actually making the camo less beneficial.

$99.32?  I'll pass.  Missouri and Musashi will have to soldier on for me.

Interesting.  I never stopped to do the math.  Thanks.

Dang, I wish that the Ashitaka could have a "plain" paint job in that burnt maroon red that's the base of the Kobayashi camo.  I don't really like all the yellow and white diamonds and Japanese script.  But the burnt maroon red base paint job is gorgeous!

Just grabbed Kii and Ashitaka's camos in the separate camo bundles as I already have Roma's camo from before. Ashitaka looks the best for those highlighted characters, Kii just looks meh but not ugly like Roma's. Roma could use some dispersion buffs honestly. Kii is the solid performer out of the three Ashitaka still is on the weak side. If it had a spotter plane it would help her out a lot.

I would like to see the commemorative flags offered, there are a few that I don't have. 

Though I dislike the actual camos offered, I do have them and do use them, love the -50% Service fee.

I sadly do not have the ships with which these camouflages apply to, nor the money to get the ships, let alone the camo. The Ship Collector in me is upset, but that's life for you, you don't always get what you want.
