Naked ships

Since the update playing t5 to t7 I am seeing a lot more naked ships? No camo, no flags etc. Are a bunch of co op players now in random? Or are these bots? Had a team yesterday where I and one team mate had camo and flags on my side? Several games where maybe half had camo? Or is everyone just broke or saving them for something else? Mostly t5 and t6 ships. Or is it the rewards are not enough for many to use them?

Heck, I see it pretty often in Tiers 8-10, two different games yesterday had Shimas with no camo.  I don't find it all that unusual.

Lots of people run without camo.  You just haven't been paying attention to it :Smile_coin:

 

Not everyone has tens of thousands of camo sitting around, and a bunch of Perma-Camo fitted ships.

 

Hell, there are guys that accidentally go into games without any camo on their Premium Ship despite such ships having one.  Like, they were using some consumable camo for a grind, that ran out, and they hit BATTLE! before putting the regular Perma-Camo on or something else.

Some players are getting conservative and saving credits and doubloons.   ITS the NEW REALITY!

If I use a special camo and "battle on" without checking if I'm still having camo, I'll go "naked". Maybe add a warning would help.

Just start issuing fines and citations and it should go away.

Could be a couple of things

 

First off, yes, people could be running their ships naked. Silly...but it happens.

 

Second: player maybe be grinding away and hit battle again, not realizing they had used up their stock of that particular camo. Again, it happens.

 

Third: if you are one of those people who shut off the anime, monster, Mad Max camos, you are going to see a naked hull. Yeah, that player still gets any bonuses associated with the camo, but you don't see it because you turned it off.

Nothing in the rules states that you MUST wear camo on your ship... or use signal flags

If we can have two choices of camo colour, I can't see why we shouldn't be able to take a third choice of naked-lookinh. Rock out with your **** out in battle after battle, and make the world think you are a careless noob.

I have been having a lot of bots in the games today in coop which shouldn't happen unless early in the morning. The mm has been very erratic since the upgrade. The bots have a : in front of their name Frigate007 like :daniel

Fines? Are you serious? By all means, let's fine people for being broke.

You also desactive special cammos? (like arp/space/anime/etc cammos) this will show the ships with this cammos "naked" for you.

I normally try to use at least a camo, but on ships lines im in no hurry to tier up, or ships that already have decent concealment i will go without. Driving a CV dont really need one all the time as it tends to sit behind a island far in the back field.

Come on though, the 3% concealment camo is cheap as chips.....

To be fair though, sometimes people run out and forget to replace. I run a naked Kongo and Myoko, because I sold the tech tree versions and run the ARP versions instead.

when I first started this game, the camos and flags were things i brushed over and only considered when playing ranked. I didn't realize how important they were to use always until T7 having completed over 1k battles.

I once ran my Worcester for 20 games with a zero-point commander, no camo, and, no signals, and no modules. It performed decently, if not superbly. Little perks do add up and make things run more smoothly but are not absolutely necessary to successfully playing the game.

I wonder if the cost of signals is just to high in the current meta? A few of them are pretty pricey credit wise. I know I struggle to earn enough credits to pay for running more than 4 or 5 at a time that I have not won or got in a container. More so on lower tier ships.

There are many reasons people do not use camos. I would say the cost is the main reason. Also I'm not wasting a special camo on a ship or captain that doesn't need the perk. At this time I have a number of camos I can use so unless I forget I run a camo in both coop & random battles. But each to his own.
