Hmmm.....a little hard to see what some of these are in the main article pictures....had to go to the premium shop and look in each offer to properly view them. I've actually already got most of them through various events, but I don't use them because what I want is more camo schemes where :

1. they change with the season

2. they allow me to customise emblems, inscriptions and decals.

So, the 7th anniversary camo is good in my view, the 23rd Feb style sort of OK, but not customisable enough. Please give us more like the 7th anniversary scheme.

Please check on the links. 23rd February leads to 7th anniversary and 7th anniversary leads to the same page from where I'm opening it.

You couldn't help yourself again couldn't you Wargaming?

You had to bundle 15 ballast items with a simple skin to artificially inflate the price to 8GBP?

 

Instead of selling just one skin for under 1GBP?

Not sure if the missions have any added price to it though. All separate paints have 90 x5 missions together but the big bundle comes with only 30, yet the stated discount adds up which would suggest that they do not.

I guess they just figure that the more flashy paints are generally more interesting and thus can be charged at a higher rate.

Nice, really good to see you are offering unique and event-themed camos and styles in the shop. I will gladly fork some $$ for something like this.

 

Spending money on yet another OP tank, which I buy just to keep up with the meta and stay competitive (bad move on my part, because it just encourages you to release even more OP tanks) feels great because I think I'm a better player than the guy I just killed, but it's something that really affects the balance of the game in the long run.

 

Some suggestions for future camos, if I may:

- I personally am not a big fan of the WG Fest styles or the Gamescom one, they are just too out-of-place for my taste. They don't really look like they were designed to make a tank blend in with the environment and look way to detailed for someone to have painted something like that on a tank. I would have preferred these to look like an actual tank camo and just have an emblem/decal that hinted to the event it's tied to (like WG Fest and/or Gamescon) .But if you really want to keep these, at least add some wear and tear to them? Other camos are usually faded or less detailed in the areas of a tank that are more prone to wear and makes them look a bit more realistic. Including that in may have made them look a bit better, perhaps?

- like WoT_RU_Doing said, it would be nice if the styles had different coloring for summer/winter/desert

In general I'm a bit confused and disappointed....

 

I really do like the WG-Fest style, but would love to know if this is one style (meaning for one season) or like the preset-styles which cover all 3 sets (summer/winter/desert) ???

 

Also I'm with Cobra6 here..... the xp bundles are nice, I guess (and I will get one of them most likely to help me with the "get to tier 8 push" :D … after getting the t26e5 for free for 7 days I think I like it but need "my own" tier 8 to learn how to really drive it :D ) but it would be great to have pure skins to buy without packages …. or an option to select how many skins and xp-packs you want (( like selecting 10 skins but only once the 10x 5xp package for those who don't want it instead of forcing all to buy 10 skins including 10x 10 5xp packages ))

I'm coming down to you B&Q then, it'll be worth the fuel cost when the wife wants to paint the living room again.

 

Looked at the diversity one expecting an OTT rainbow design and it's disappointingly nice and low key.

I get them when I get them from missions, it is not like it is something particularly I hunt down either at that.

Checked the website and it's 18 quid for a 5L tub of own brand matt emulsion.  I've emailed to find out how many 5x exp I get with that. :trollface:

Some of them are nice. However after a long ALL these lose appeal.

 

My honest feedback: Make them map-type diverse. Sure the "BRING THE HEAT" WG FEST 2017 is nice, but when you see exactly the same in all 3 map-types gets a little boring. How hard it is to make it a liiiiiitle bit different depending on desert/summer/winter? Not a lot, just a little. 

Most importantly : Keep the camo, but don't lock other customizable options. This is the biggest turn off for me. Let us put on our decals (they are not cheap!), our inscriptions, our favorite emblems.

The Rio carnival I'd guess, it's the most famous and it starts today.
