Bit of disappointed with the P.E.F. campaign camo

I finished the campaign and hoped for some good looking camo.

Unfortunally I got only half a camo.

Why half?

This is the way the ship looks after you use it

The only real change is a complete white hull and the camo stripes removed from the superstructure.

What I wished for was something like the König Albert or the Emden

The P.E.F. camo is half SMS and half KMS look, which isn't a real eyecandy. The Kaiserreich camo from the last two ships would have looked awesome.

The only time WG did it really right was the Tirpitz camo from the campaign.

First of all it gave a alternative but still historic look. And there was a second incentive to use it: +100% free XP.

Yes, free stuff is free. And we got a few T6 ships and premium camos for them. So it's another good reward. But it still feels meh.

Anyway: Merry Christmas to all of you!

I think that's the point. PEF is modelled in a fictional Nazi-era refit, hence the superstructure being left gray on the alternate perma camo. Only the solid white hull remains as a nod to its WW1 origin. I personally like the alternative look. Shame I probably won't be able to get it though.

You can unlock the campaign early and "earn" the camo plus 4 full reserached tier 6 ships including premium camo and a 3 point captain.

I think it was the Icarus, Normandy, Nürnberg, Dallas. 

You also get 18 collection containers, each give 30 flags and 2 collectibles.

You get 3 missions and need only 4 stars. 2 are randoms/ranked only. One of them is only doable with the ships you earned. The last is any gamemode but operations.

Depending on your luck, time and skill, it could be done in 2 or 3 days.

Here you get an idea how the camo looks, she gives the ususal T6 bonuses

The camo is better than the performance of those guns. The glacial turret traverse and the horrid shell drag needs to be addressed.

The traverse can be made to work. You're right about the drag, though. This is a ship that can barely do ANYTHING to enemy BBs. Some upper belt/superstructure work is the best you can hope for. If they're angled or beyond 10km? Har har.

I don't think so.  I have had old Perma-Camo sitting in the Inventory.

I had the Congratulatory Perma-Camo for Z-23 sitting in my Inventory from an event long ago.  When I only got the actual ship a few days ago, that Perma-Camo was available immediately.
