Has anyone else noticed that you can either pay gold for 'custom' camo, only if you're going to keep the tank IMHO, or you can 'rent' standard camo for 75K for 100 games!

 

BUT, if you're close to completing the research for your next tank should you waste that much for maybe only 20 matches? Or can you sell the remainder of the rental back? Can it be transferred to your new tank?

 

So many questions! So many credits perhaps wasted! Another credit sink?

You can move it from tank to tank, and when only applied to hull you already get the camo bonus. So with the free camo you got from WG as compensation you can play 3 tanks with camo bonus without ever having to buy one..

 

Bad rant, i rate 0/10.

I think you can only transfer the gold camo. But that is actually pretty handy, especially when grinding through a line.

Considering you can now remove camo on any tank for free, and take it off tanks you don't use, and apply it to tanks you play now. Why is that not fair? And if you plan to play it and want to use the rental system. It's not based on days, that you might get 20 games into and waste 100K credits on that on your tier X. It's for 100 battles. So 3 months from now, it's still there. And on a high tier grind, it will take more then 100 battles to do anyway. On low tiers? Not really.

 

But you got a free gift camo that's universal for all nations. You can put it on a German tank, take it off and move it to a US tank for free. So even free players gets a full seasonal set for at least 3 tanks. As you only need camo on the hull to get the bonus.

Silver is a resource i can spare. If earning silver is an issue git gud. 75k on a free account...that's maybe 5 good games with a up to tier 8 tank of you can carry your weight.
I actually like the change because having time tick away even when you don't play the tanks suck. Imagine you have lots of tanks with rented camo. This change is actually a win win for those who don't have or want to spend gold on permanent camo. They should do this too for premium time like buy premium time for 1000 games for 10€. I bet many players incl. me who hesitated to buy premium time because they take a break from the game from time to time will welcome that option even if it's really just a few cents per game for a year of premium but the feeling that you let a few days go to waste is gone.

This is one of the few better implementations and/or changes WG have done in quite a while and thank god they didn't go with what they had in mind with Rubicon. The only thing I'm missing so far is the ability to scale some of the emblems and inscriptions, some are so damn small while some are huge, a small, medium and large setting would be great.
