if it wasn't for all these signal flags across the top of the ship.

That just looks really gaudy and awful, like some little kid was like, "lets put these cool flags over the entire ship!"

That is called "dressing" and would not be used in battle. I had her before and use the rather plain camouflage that has a false bow wave.

As Brush said, it's actually accurate. But only for port events. They would be struck before the ship got underway. Try taking it into battle, I'm betting those flags go away.

Nice job Brush but how come we all got Admiral Graf Spee  ( not that I'm complaining ) and you get a Tier 10 for finishing section 10 of the dockyard.

The first time your ship catches fire all that fluff would be toast.

Agreed.  While subjective, it's a little much for me as well.  I typically stick to standard "battle" perma camos over these over the top types.

Let's face it, Ace; the only reason people put up with the Roma beer can (when they're not turning it off in settings) is because of the extra XP and credit bonuses. If that thing gave the standard T8 permacamo bonuses, it would never have sold at any price - especially since it's for a premium ship which already has a standard-issue permacamo and doesn't NEED (and I stress the 'need' here) another with exactly the same benefits.

You know and I know that some people are extremists and love the gaudiest stuff out there.

Why else would anyone put a 10ft wing spoiler on a Honda Civic?

Because they don't understand aerodynamics and they think it actually does something worthwhile.

They don't show up in battle. I saw in a post a while ago that the poster was wondering why the signals didn't shown up in battle and wanted them too. As I recall anyways.

I for one love my new FREE permanent camo that someone spent time on designing.  Thank you WG!

You missed the hint that this ship is a port queen )))

My wife has knocked the spoiler off her PT Cruiser, she loves that thing, 3 times. We've replaced the lower panel of the garage 3 times too.

Spoilers look cooler than vacuum cleaner cars. Much fast in the corners but not much to look at.

Now this is a beautiful ship that no steel ship can come close to matching in appearance.

If you ask around the boy racer circuit, they'll probably tell you it adds ten horsepower.

Don't mind the flags/pennants hanging up there.  It's those chinguses hanging off the side that IMO are just stupid ugly.  Get rid of those and it would be okay.

But I have the normal camo anyway.  So this one will just sit unused.

Not really a fan of the parade or dohicky camos either.  

I'd rather have the crazy glowing ARP camos before the camos with lots of bunting and banners hanging of the ships, or whatever the heck was up with the recent RU cruiser camos.

Dude, works the same way as red paint... It is known to the boyz you go faster that way!

Okay, I propose to do a Roma camo but with purple and pink glowy ARP Myoko-like colours and trimmings and with a massive My Little Pony in place of the beercan. How far up would we have to lift the XP, FXP, CXP and credit bonuses to make people buy it? What would be your breaking point to display that on your ship? :Smile_trollface:

Tier 10? I get a tier 8 just like everyone else.

There may be some truth to the red paint. The last time I checked red cars received the most traffic tickets.

Just some tongue and cheek humour about the Graf on display by the OP and you posting a PIC of the USS Constitution which in the past on here has been considered jokingly as a Tier 10 class ship if it was in game.

cheers
