WoWS seems to have introduced some kind of a 'Space battle' event or something with special 'space camos'... some of these camos are available in the WoWS section of the Premium shop at bargain prices. Could/should WoT also get something similar to these? Like a 'Defenders of the Moon Base' event or something similar with laser and/or rocket firing tanks that can operate under zero gravity conditions using booster rockets?

We had some ball tank special a while back, was it for April fools?  That was based on the moon or somewhere unearthly IIRC.

 

Could do with a good fun mode again, the Halloween one was OK but a bit tedious.

And all that to go along with spaced armor.:)

I remember, the game really could use these special game modes (not to mention additional permanent or recurring special game modes).

It seems to be very much going judging by what they are selling in the premium shop at a mere 29 € a piece: https://eu.wargaming.net/shop/wows/specials/8684/

They did the same for Halloween. Tho there you had to get the skins in boxes you bought. And I won 3 boxes in a random event and got the Nassau skin with the tesla coil on top.

They do not seem to be selling one for the Yamato which is simply disgraceful! :fish_viking:

Damn, that looks like fun. I'm still salty that consoles get that awesome sniper view though...(among many other things) :angry:

It might look expensive for a camo (and it is) but in Warboats the camo confers economic bonuses, they're not built into the ships in the same way as premium tanks work. Those space camos effectively give your tier 10 ship premium earning potential.

 

  • -3% to surface detectability range.
  • +4% to maximum dispersion of shells fired by the enemy at your ship.
  • -50% to the cost of ship's post-battle service.
  • +20% credits earned in the battle.
  • +100% experience earned in the battle.

 

That's the same as the regular tier 10 premium camos, which cost 5,000 doubloons (gold) per ship. The space patterns work out at roughly 8,000 doubloons, which IMO is too expensive for a camo that gives nothing more than the 5k version offers but the economy and playerbase is rather different too.
