I wish that you guys at WG had stuck with the players playing the steam punk ships and had those skins as perma camos.  I'll never like these fugly monstrous perma-camos and ships.  To me, they're the bad guy ships, not the good guy ships.  And besides, they're fugly as all get out.  At least the steam punk ones have some class to them.  :cap_old:

Oh, and I wish that you guys wouldn't stick that grinder thing on the bow of every frickin' ship in these events.   Come on.  Think of something new.

Good thing you live in a free country and it is your choice whether to mount them or not. I on the other hand enjoy the variety of camp that is presented. Most of the camos present the same bonuses, so you are not losing any bonus by shelving this camo that is freely given to you.

The camos are truly awful-looking. It's almost like WG said hey, if we're going to give out free camo that's relatively easy to get, it has to be as ugly as possible. Still, I do appreciate the free camo.

Almond Joy has nuts....Mounds don't.   

Some think it's cool....some don't.

Yet it is free.

Can’t you turn off the camo so you still get the bonus but don’t have to see it? Thought I read that option was installed recently

I'm not going to put in the time and effort to get a high tier perma camo and then not look at it.   I don't mind the steam punk perma camos.  I happen to use the Chapeyev and Lexington steam punk ones, but don't have the others.

My favorite camo by far is the one for the tier III St. Louis. It really doesn't look like anything that might not actually be on an experimental electrically-powered ship in the Dreadnought era. I can stand the Freedom camos, especially as the one on my Des Moines makes it a credit printer. I can't say that monster camos are my thing but if I can get one for my Montana, which eats credits even with a win, I'll put up with it. One VIII monster camo I put on my North Carolina. I'm debating which other tier VIII ship to "monsterize."

I couldn’t agree more. Those skins are atrocious. I would not want them even if they were completely free with no grinding.

They watch to many robot battle programs.

They had those last year and the year before, and I seriously wish they'd dropped some pumpkin containers into the directive missions alongside the Italian stuff, even the non-premium ones. Alas the only way to do it in-game is in "oh my freaking god" mode, which you require a division to even attempt. 

Hopefully Christmas has a half-price permacamo sale and I'll be able to stick permacamos on a few things that have been waiting their turn for far too long. In the meantime, I've got the First World problem of trying to decide which ships I want to mount the T8 and T9 permacamos on, given that I can't put them on carriers. T9 especially makes me think about which ship I grind up to next from the Tier 8's I have. Lion and Jutland both look like fun, but I wouldn't have considered it up to now because playing T9 without permacamo is brutal.

IIRC, the change that was made affected only how other ships appear. Essentially, if you turn off the special camo option other ships in battle no longer appear naked, but have generic camo to give you information about what concealment/dispersion bonuses they have. I believe disabling the special camos still prevents you from mounting them yourself.

This ... if you "hide" a special camo it actually demounts it from your ship and removes it from your available camos.
