Just curious here why WG would offer these camos for ships that already come with an included camo that gives the same bonuses...

Why not offer camo's like this for tech tree ships, wouldn't that offer more encouragement for the player base to grind them out or pay cash for them?

 

I have texas... but not going to pay 5$ or do the silly grind for the camo...   if it was a tech tree ship i do not have a perma camo for you bet i would consider it.

Yeh WG kinda slipped up on that. If they had offered all of the allied ships a Prema camo option that would have been great . I'd slap those in my favorite ships. 

Oh well if I get one, I get one. if not ....:Smile-_tongue:

As you say, I think nearly every ship has another premium camo it can use - I really do not know why they did it.

I'm fed up with thinking the worst of WG, but I see them all around a table saying 'No...no, I've got a better idea - let's make them pay for something that doesn't actually give them anything 'extra' - hell they lapped up the Black Lacquer camo, let's do it again!'

Then someone else around the table says 'And lets not put 'camo' in any of the titles, let's just put the name of the ship and VE Day...that way a new player that has no concept and would probably bork at being asked to pay $40 for a pixel ship, will buy this camo thinking he's buying a new ship; trollolololol!'

 

 

On the 'better' side they did something that celebrated the occasion and allowed people to earn the camos too - so dismissing my words above....thank you WG.

The WG marketing department is beyond cynical and is just kind of mean spirited.

When I saw the 20000 base xp on the last third, I said 'Pass'.

God, that one took forever. I'm trying to complete a second one but I doubt it will happen. Worst part is it is base xp so there is little you can do to speed it up.

I'm surprised New Orleans got a camo over Indianapolis. I mean people play it more than the premium, but still.

I have no interest in obtaining a different looking, yet same benefit camo.  Most of the perms do the same thing ---  don't need a different-looking-yet-same-thing item.  If they're going to offer something different, make it different.  VE day camos should have a CXP bump for instance.  Other camos depending on the theme should be able to squeeze a little something extra in there as well.  Space camos for instance, same situation.  They'll introduce new mechanics (fuel smoke, SAP) for "uniqueness" yet same old canned stuff w/ camos.

I don't mind it. Dunkerque for example looks great with the Fleur d'Acier camo over the boxed in one. Graf Spee looks nice with 2016 New Years camo. That said those were earnable for free.

Seriously?  20k base xp to get an alternate perma camo that does the same thing as the one we already have?  Oh, and that's after the 60k commander xp and 60k xp.

Agreed.
