So today we can finally receive the reward camo from the 'Grand Extravaganza' event.  Did you expected a full set? I was.

But WG again mage a show of greed and incompetence, and gave us just 3 pieces of camo instead of 9....

But the 'joke' does not stop here, the said camo can be applied to cover all seasons, too bad that what we received is enough just for the hull. :facepalm:

 Earn three pieces of unique all-season camo by entering a battle

 

Did not login today but if indeed there are only 3 pieces ... well ... they did say that in the description of the event reward.

 

I am not that bothered, free stuff is free stuff. And we got this just for playing. My 112 is missing a summer paintjob anyway. So these 3 will be just fine. :)

Giving only 3 pieces of unique camo is...

I am at work and ... uninstalled WoT here so I can focus on work more ... but maybe I can do a sneaky reinstall and check this camo myself.

Thanks. :)

 

In the meanwhile I reinstalled NVIDIA GeForce NOW, started the game from my profile library (cloud gaming can have some advantages), played a quick arty game ( I know, right? :D ) and got the camo.

 

Now my 112 who was missing a summer camo has it applied. :) Yes, it can work on any map and any season. Pretty sweet. :)

 

I guess OP thought it was going to be like the ranked battles reward camo? But like I said, worked perfectly for me, as I only needed 3 pieces to complete my 112 camo. :)

Got the 3 x camo and gave the TVP 50/51 a new paint job! Looks nice!

Edit: I probably need to play a battle.

So you say that your 430 in the picture has camo on all maps with those 3 camo parts applied only on summer? Really? What about the winter and desert maps? 

You realize that ''Award all season'' is just a name for that camo? 

Tell me how you apply your camo on a tank so you can benefit from it on all seasons? I can tell you how, apply camo only to the hull and make your tank look like crap. You need 9 pieces to completely fit a tank, WG gave out just 3.... Rocket science for you?

 

To have a tank completely camouflaged and looking nice on all maps there are just 2 variants:

1. having 9 pieces of permanent camo applied

2. having a rental/permanent style applied.

Do you have any of those?

The point of the camo is you can apply it to any season, not that it is for the whole tank for all 3 seasons.

Just use it on the hull of a turretless TD and the camo will cover 90% of your tank anyway. Could've been better, but I don't mind it.
