Why do you applying camouflage to a tank?

It for the look of the tank? The defier to make a tank look more cool and unique?

 

Or it is all about the stats improvement?

Do you even care that the tank looks differently?

After all you can mod the look of the tank for free, but you can't get a free mod the improves the concealment value.

 

For me it all about the look, I want my favourite tanks to look different and look like the are ready for war.

The concealment buff is not something I think about when it adding camouflage to my tank.

 

But what about the rest of you?

I know that you get the look and the bonus when applying camouflage.

But if you have to pick one reason for doing it, what would that reason be?

Looks mostly. All of my premium/reward tanks, tier X and other "keepers" have perma-camo and a whole lot of them get little or no benefit from it, but there's something majestic about seeing a Maus-shaped block of bacon strips cruising through the desert.

If I wanted it for the look, I'd just get a mod to make them look different. Of course it's for the buff.

A bit of both I guess, which wasn't an option. But given that I have painted in sone of my keeper heavies, it's primarily for the looks.

I think about concealment for tanks that can be effectively concealed, and the look for the rest. It's good to see tanks that have camo on them, it shows that at the very least the player cares about something, and if they can get one thing right the rest often follows.

Back when i put my first camo on my tank i did it for the looks. I still have tanks that aren't painted just because they aren't / weren't my favorites back then / now and in case of today they just look too good in modded HD skins it would be a shame to paint them.

I got a Maus with a peace emblem. Got a KV 5 with a no smiking sign.

 

If they would allow me a trollface on KV 2 I would pay 500 golds for it. :trollface:

 

Sometimes tanks look better with camo, sure the buff is good and should stay, but some bit of customization is the cool part.

 

For reasons.... KV 5 with no smoking sign makes me chuckle everytime.  :hiding:

Where is the "Both" option?

 

You can ask whether it is a "Primary" reason, but if it didn't look good then I would be loathe to pay for camo, even with a 50% bonus. If it didn't give any bonus at all, I probably would not bother.


 

ALL of my definite "Keeper" tanks have permanent camo. You could argue that I have had a number of vehicles for such a long time that they are Keepers, but they are not. Several are on a danger list of tanks that might be sold at any time, and they haven't been camouflaged for Gold.

I apply permanent camo on a few, on others like Leopard 1 I cannot decide what's the best looking one, so I change it every week for silver.

 

Except the winter one, german winter camo pattern sucks on leo, I resign from the bonus and keep it vanilla. :(

 I always buy camo for half price, but there are times when I think I'd rather have done them all from one nation in the same pattern or one of the newer ones. They all look pretty good: the ones I have chosen, I mean.

It could be a 1000 gold, and have the Rubicon idiocy, and I'd want that.

I put it on all my tier 10s and all my premiums*.  Primarily for the camo buff.

 

*That I actually play, I must have about 50 but don't play them all.

It's all about the 2%.

No option for both.  As other posters have mentioned, it depends, for lights and td's (and my arty) it's the buff for the rest it's cosmetic.

Missing the option: Funding SerB's Space Programme.

 

All of my keepers (read Japanese tanks) have permament camo on them.

Except STA-1, that's not a keeper if you already have the STA-2.

for the concealment, I play TD's and the better the concealment, well, that's a good thing, and needed

if it didn't do anything and was just personalisation, I wouldn't bother with buying it

Looks, mostly. Of course, every tiny bit of camo helps, but it's not a primary concern.
