Go to the WOWS News page and you can participate in a opt-in HSF Collection that grants you a free Perma camo for Yamato. I have the link bellow. The Camo is fairly normal looking by Weeb standards and is shown bellow.  Don't miss out on a FREE perma camo for a tier X ship.

Don't want to spoil the fun... but you need to finish the collection to earn the camo!

You need to play one battle in a T5+ ship to get the first of the collection. The rest you can collect through daily containers.

Kinda funny, that here in the US Azure Lane is streaming now not HS Fleet.  But free for a bit of time is always nice +1 OP for the heads up

Thanks for the head's up. This is great for any of us who play Yamato less often because of the repair and service costs.

its doesn't quite give the full T10 perma camo benefits, as it trades 20% credit boost and 50% XP gains for 50% commander XP. But hey, free is free.

I am happy that you can collect through daily containers.  I do not have the ships except one to do the special missions.

Do we get oil,dubloons,filth,tokens, or whatever other currency if we already own it?

You get 50k credits for double collectibels. Since the camo is a collection reward, you cannot complete it a second time.

didn't this already happen like 2 years ago?

Yes

Yes, but you need many of them. The Italien collection is also just around the corner.

Yes, but she got pulled slightly before schedule in September last year, and quite a few people who had been on the fence (including me) missed out.

Actually it still has the 50% XP bonus. It trades the 20% service cost reduction for the 50% commander XP. A bit less credits for twice the elite commander XP seems like a plus.

Well, the HSF anime show is from 2 years ago... it's not exactly new.

That being said, the movie version of the show has been announced for Spring of 2020, for theaters in Japan. I'm guessing this is why we're seeing the collab again, here in WoWs?

normal T10 camos give 100% XP bonus. Yamato HSF camo gives 50% XP gain. Hence why I said you lose 50% of XP gains.

Don't we all ready have that camo?

Anybody that was around 2 years ago does (at least those that didn't pass due to "anime" reasons)..this is a rehash so those not around then can get a chance at it.

No...if you already own it you have already completed the collection the 1st time & won't be able to assign it as the daily container collection option.

Once you start the collection you can always go back to it after you finish any other ones (whether permanent or temporary).

Ah OK yep that all makes sense. Thanks for looking in to it. I thought I might be able to get the flags.

list benefits

For a FREE Tier X Perma-Camo that includes the massive benefit of -50% service cost, this is a big deal.  There's plenty of players that can't or won't spend big money and get Tier X Perma-Camo casually, so any means to get one free is nice.

 

So one has to grind a collection a bit?  Big whoop, a small price to pay for FREE Tier X Perma-Camo.

 

Compared to how events are run these days, this is easy, and the benefits are meaningful to one of the most important, most played ships in the game.

 

Also, I completed the collection last time around and was able to sign up for the event again.  My HSF collection is still complete but I do have the missions to get a few crates again.

Those HSF ship missions reward a container.  Should be quick to do.  Free is Free.

The Cat Captain Isoroku, for those curious, doesn't meow.  He has these weird grunting sounds from, which was from the TV show apparently.

Your welcome but I didn't necessarily "look into it"...just the way collections usually work.

That free T10 camo for it from 2 years ago is why it's 1 of the most played ships...but yes...very easy requirements for a T10 camo...you'd be silly to pass it up even if you have a whale's pocketbook to spend on the game.

Yamato is one of the most played because it's Yamato and that she still has LOLPEN 460mm benefits, and a good set of guns.  You saw plenty of Yamato players before and after it was introduced.  After it was brought it, still many don't have it.
