450 gold for complete camouflage ? No thank you. What about emblems and inscriptions ? With all it's above 1k gold per tank.

I can buy pre-made generic camouflage for 75k but it just sucks and I can't use emblems and inscriptions with it.

 

Why remove option to chose if I want to pay with gold or credits ? Bring it back and make it last 100 battles like generic camo does.

Ehm no, it's 1K gold for a single tank then and you can demount it all and apply it to the next tank in your garage. So 1K gold for ALL your tanks basically. But any basic reading and understanding simple things is a challenge for you already, isn't it?

I'll bring next challenge for your reading and understanding. What about when that tank is in battle and you are back in garrage ? Do you want to re-apply whole camo before every fight ?

Pretty sure the current camo system was thrown together to pad the Xmas release.  Further iterations will see it better implemented.

I posted about these things as well, they should be fixed ASAP... It's just pathetic that you can't use your earned (emblems/inscriptions) with cammo for credits or for example you achieve campaign cammo by completing missions yet you need gold to use it. And even with gold the price per tank for emblems/inscriptions is just ridiculous. Maybe and just maybe I would understand all of this if this absolutely greedy (not nice word) company would give players opportunity to earn some gold from events giving 1-5 gold sometimes for something.

Stay alive till end of battle, don't exit battle when you're destroyed, wait for battle to end, or even simply use 2 kits (in which case you'd have to spend a whopping 2K gold for all your tanks). As for your last question; I'm too damned lazy to do that so I actually throw in multiple sets of camo for gold, as I have more than enough to waste like that anyway. Or I simply add the preset camo for 75K as I'm not some whiny little female dog crying about the aesthetics value of the preset camo and whether or not it makes the rear of my tank look fat.

Next stage of challange for you. What about other nationality tanks ? You know you can only share nation specific camo, do you ? How is your 2k gold theory now ?

Depends. You don't need camo on your gun for the bonus. So TD's can get away with 150 gold. And I'm sure you have camo on tanks you never play you can move around. And you got a gift camo set you can toss on 3 tanks on the hull only. Like most do.

Do you need it? Is that super vital for you tank and camo to work if you don't have emblems? Again, take it off an old tank you never play then. And it's only 1K because you want it to be 1K. You can get away with 150 as we said.

Has anyone tried to calculate whether the 75k/100 battle camo is more expensive to use than the old time limited camo paid for with credits?

You're aware you only need to apply camo to the hull for the full effect yes? The camo on turret & gun is simply for aesthetics & is not needed for the camo bonus. In that regard, the current camo is cheaper then the old system gold wise.

+ 3 sets of camo's for each season, so you can apply free camo bonus to 3 tanks you own.

Both imo. If you play specific tanks alot, it's more expensive, because more battles in same period, so have to rebuy camo if you play more battles in a specific time period

If you play a tank casually, it's less expensive, as it'll outlast the old timed system.

Yeah, but I use it for looks mostly, especially on heavies.

Yeah, can skip gun so it goes down to 300 gold, which is still expensive imo. Especially that before update low tier tanks had lower cost. Now it's 300g for tier 1 tank aswell.

Might be. But you don't need it for every single tank do you? I'm sure you have a few sets lying around you don't use or need. Unless you thought it was better to pay 400 000 credits for a tank you played 6 times in 30 days before?

Camo is 50g each section of tank max 3, x 3 for summer, winter, desert = 450g

emblems are 50g each max 2, =100g

inscriptions are 50g each max 2, =100g 

= 650g

 

All camo, emblems and inscriptions can be removed and placed on other tanks in the same tree free of charge,

You only need camo on the hull of the tank to get the full camo bonus,

 

So if all you want is the camo bonus it will cost you 150g per tree,

if you want your tanks to look nice then it will cost you 650g per tree.

 

ASLO if you look at the camo's,, paints, emblems, inscriptions if there is a little hanger in the bottom left hand corner with a number that is the number of that item you already have, and you can use those free of charge just the same.

That's nice. Except you get separate emblems and inscription for every weather.

I guess it'd depend on whether you played more than 100 battles in a particular tank in the 7 or 30 days you had camo on it.

 

I've always put gold camo on tanks I thought I'd keep and sometimes ended up only keeping them in my garage because they had gold camo. With the new system those tanks have been sold and I've got a slot and some spare camo to put on another tank, so as far as I'm concerned this new system is great.

Unless you only play 1 battle for a week of camo you might lose credits.

With the new system unless you really suck and never make at least 7500 average profit per game it shouldn't be a problem.

Yes like the paints i forgot that so that's an extra 400g per tree SO max you will have to pay is 1050g per tree that lasts as long as the game does.

1050g =  £3.82 

 

Personally i think £3.82 to use on any tank in an entire tree is great, you used to have to pay for camo for every single tank, now 1 set covers the Entire tree.

I think that might depend on the tier - camo was cheaper on lower tiers so it might work out more expensive for some tanks now. For me I think it'll be cheaper as I used to buy camo and waste it by not playing that tank enough to get my money's worth.
