If I have done my math correctly, if I earn all available German tokens from the directives (which relies on the boxes giving me all of the cv's) I will still be 15 tokens short of a perma camo in the armory?

I could be mistaken but that appears to be the case.

Not only do you have to hope that you get the t4, the t6 and the t8, you also need the graf zep.

You need the Graf Zeppelin as well. 

You're 75 tokens short of the 600 needed for one of the tier 10 permacamos if don't have it. 

15 for stage 6 of that mission, and 60 for completing the mission itself.

If you get 3 of 3 early access carriers, have the GZ, and finish all 4 mission chains, you should have 600 tokens.

I assume you can earn more tokens in part 2 of German Carriers, if not, then I gotta ask why WG even bothered.

So far I only to manage to do 5 of 6 on directives because I don't have German CVs and they aren't available on the tech tree yet.  Or are they?  Not at home to check but I think they are still in early release?

Part 2's of events generally have different tokens.

It seems I may have missed something, further inspection looks like I can make 600, but ONLY if i pull the A. Parseval fro one of the final 5 crates I have in directive 4

Normally yes, but the directives for the German ships that pay out tokens say they have 37 days remaining (as of yesterday).

So you spend money to get the needed tokens.

I would consider yourself lucky to have gotten any early unlock drops.  I have done all the missions, opened all the daily shipments, plus extra containers from the PTS and Twitch.  0 CVs.

You get the missions to unlock the early access to the tier 4, 6, and 8 carriers randomly from the German containers that are paid out for completing other missions in the event. 

So in order to get those carriers, you have to luck out.  

In order to get enough tokens for a permacamo for GK, Hindy, or 52, you need to get lucky three times, complete those three mission chains with the step 6 carrier requirement, AND have or buy Graf Z, and also complete THAT mission chain. 

Yeah.

They locked access to the permacamos for surface ships behind a combination of luck, and willingness/ability to play the carriers if they happen to drop.

The German containers don't have tokens, so you can't just buy the tokens you need.  The only way to get more tokens is by buying the 7500 doubloon bundles, where you are paying for the camo and then grinding for it.

So people would feel the urge to BUY something; whether it be CV crates to unlock a CV so you can complete the mission for more tokens, or buying the 7500 dub mission chain that gives you 600 tokens.

Yes.

In theory, one can also buy enough German containers to get all the early unlocks, and then also having the GZ, can obtain the T10 camo that way.  This would early unlock all the CVs and get all the premium camos for them.

Never play for the golden ring!  Relax and play for the crumbs that come along while others stress themselves out to try to get the near impossible,

That way if you get a drop it will be a nice surprise!

I have the T4 and T6 but haven't the slightest care about getting the T-8 because I am not paying to get those Camos and I don't have the Graf Z

I will never have a Graf Z unless it drops in a SC or Christmas container either.

So play and have fun and at the end just use them to buy stuff.

Works for me.

My guess is it would be a crap ton cheaper to buy the camo bundle to get the 600 tokens outright.

Probably, but you would only get the T10 premium camo, instead of all of the early unlocks with all the premium camos. If you early unlock all of them, you don't "just" get the T10 camo.

Just depends on what you want and how fast you want it.

At this point, I will have to wait for the line's release and will just buy the normal premium camos directly.

It's fiendishly clever actually, they also bound together so many missions of various types in an attempt to make it more confusing while saying that it was attempting to "clarify" the missions tab.

Even if you got all the early access CV drops, you needed to own the Graf Zepplin to get the final tokens needed for a perma camo from missions.  So towards the end you are stuck with a decision between buying the Graf Zepplin ( 14k doubloons ) or a perma camo package mission for 7500 doubloons and having 515 tokens left to buy .... meh.

If WG had simply posted at the start that you won't be able to get a perma camo from the early access crates UNLESS you also own a Graf Zepplin, people would have simply decided if they wanted to drop 7500 dubs for the unique perma camos and not bothered to buy any premium german crates.  Of course that goes against the "sunk cost" mentality that WG is so eager to invite at every opportunity they get.

The other option is to throw money away at premium German CV containers until/if A. Parseval drops for him. If you're going to do that, though, you should just light it on fire, it'll be more entertaining.

Or just spend fewer doubloons on the normal permacamo that doesn't look as cool but gives the exact same bonuses.

Okay, so I was seeing things correctly and haven't had a "lucky" drop for a CV.  Heck, if I didn't just get the Odin, my participation in the German missions would be finished as the Scharn and Gneisenau were at tier 7 the top tier German ships in my fleet.
