You may or may not be interested in the Artic Camo currently offered for the Scharnhorst and Duke of York in game.

After all, 4k Doubs ain't cheap (for the Scharn, don't have the Duke).  But if you do, they won't be available in 0.7.12.

See below the camos (not) moving from the External Tap to the Arsenal. Artic is all I noticed, but may have missed something.

Looks nice but too expensive for just a cosmetic change.

Looks like some of the Doubloons I got from my otherwise mediocre Santa crates will be going to Scharnhorst's Arctic camo.  I love it on my DoY, and am not fond of Scharn's look with her normal camo anyway.

Who can confirm and post that all these camo's are cosmetic changes only?

All camo's are cosmetic only.

All 4 for the Scharnhorst .... same benefits.  But the cost is half for Special and Z-15 in 0.7.12

I really hope you didn't mean that.  :)

In that they don't change the ship itself. Sure you can change the concealment and increase the dispersion of shells fired at you, but no camo changes the actual ship model attributes i.e. armor, hit boxes, etc. It only changes how it looks.

Got both DoY and Scharn in the Cape North Mission. Also of note is the Campaign as well. Apart from that, there was also the Edinburgh Ice camo in Either the RN event or the one before that - for Sovereigns.

Have both ships. Will not spend that kind of high price for a camo that offers the exact same benefits, even though I have the gold. Makes no sense.

WG, want to sell that special camo? Add something to it (even small), like 2% FXP or whatever.

What he really means is that the benefits on those camos are no different from the benefits on the standard premium camo that those premium ships get.  No better and no worse.  So, technically, they're not cosmetic only.  They're just no better or worse than the standard premium camo that comes with those premium ships.

None of Wows purchases make any sense, but that never stopped me before …

Give me the Atago  green/pink camo for 1k and I'll be good :)

The way I see it, they could sell these nice perma-camos that have the same benefits as the standard premium camo that come with the premium ship for a low cost.  Or they could create nice perma-camos that come with additional benefits for a higher cost.  But it does seem to be a bit much to charge a mildly hefty price for a perma-camo with the exact same benefits as the standard premium camo that comes with the premium ship.

Well, 1k  is a fairly affordable price.  But when you start thinking about camos costing 3k, 4, or even 5k, that's getting a little pricey, particularly if you have a lot of regular and tech tree ships in your port and you'd like to get perma camos for a good number of them.

If you can't stand looking at a ship, how often are you gonna want to sail her :)

Yes, I'm still talking about ships - get your minds out of the gutter

Never bought a perma camo and likely never will, but have also lost track of how many I have got from all the various campaigns/missions/etc. Heck you have the chance at 5 more with the new campaign starting tomorrow,

That's how I've gotten all of mine ... and for now, you can still get up to 5 from the 2nd Anniversary Crates in the Arsenal.

Be warned, however, they are NOT the same as standard Premium camos.

WG might be clever to create a value adding feature for these specifically themed or situational/contextual premium camos for those who have or might consider having more than one premium camo; a system that (optionally) selects and loads the appropriate camo for the map you queue into randomly.  Maybe it's just me, but seeing an Ice camo on a ship on a map like Hot Spot or Tears of the Desert is amusing; mainly because it's absurdly out of place.  

No big deal; just an idea...

Actually they're NOT adding (or moving) it ... that's the reason for the post.  It won't be available after the next update.
