If you finish all the directives and collected all the gimme containers from daily supply, you are guaranteed the Visby. Grinding out her permacamo is not onerous. The Visby and her camo are practically a gimme in this game. So let's ignore the cost of that.

If you bought doubloon bundles or that big package in the premium shop (looks like it's now gone), consider that the up-front cost of permacamo for T6 to T10 is 15,000 doubloons, or the cash equivalent thereof. If you spent more than that, you short-changed yourself.

The ships themselves will be free to obtain in about ten days. That seems to be what a whole lot of people seem to forget.

Exactly this.  Why shell out anything for something you can get for free with patience?

On the other hand, what really is the push for permacamos at anything under T8?  There are countless expendable camos that have far greater benefits than the permacamos offered at T5 - T7.

If you are power-grinding the ship to get to the next ship, yes.

If you are power-grinding a captain in that ship to 19 points (especially in scenarios or some form of Ranked), yes.

On the other hand, for casual or extensive co-op play in a ship you have already ground out, not burning an expendable camo every time you take her out is a smart move. The same goes for the way I generally grind my ships, as incremental campaigns a few thousand XP at a time over months.

@Ensign_Cthulhu, I do exactly the same thing.  Once I have a 19 pointer for a ship I just rely on perma-camos for casual play, especially for T5-T7 ships.  There is no such thing as low-value permanent camo.

I'm (sort of) collecting permanent cammo for tech tree ships that I may never play. But just in case I do I will have them. It is better to use them than the expendable ones when the opportunity presents.

Or just ignore the line.

WG is apparently desperate to get me to not do so, considering the tokens my € containers dropped, (2-3 ships worth maybe?) but right now the camo or signals I can get with those token have more value to me, since I have no intention of playing anything except Gryf, and even then just for 5 PvP and 5 PvE.
