Hello,

I honestly do not know if this is a bug or a change by WG to allow added camo value to premium tanks that already have camo.

 

So looking at my BOG Horror & WRAITH in the past for camo it said unavailable now on those two I can pick clear camo for them. These are the only two I have found though on Twitter I have seen some post where the T32-Proto is now allowing clear & was not before today's update. So I ask is this a bug or a chance to add to camo values of these Tanks?

 

Thanks & sorry if this has been asked bor reported by others.

There was some change in sales policy recently where “skinned” vehicles would be able to equip clear camo to get the camo bonus.  They did this to reduce the cost of said vehicles whilst still making concealment buffs an option.  That process has obviously been a little messy and unclear, but that’s basically what Max said about clear camo and newer reskins in a post or two a while ago.

Thanks & do you have a link to any of those. I checked Patch notes & could not find it though I may have missed it. Thanks for any help finding a link.

I don’t recall it being in any patch notes.  I also don’t recall which threads Max had commented in.  That means I don’t have any links and I’m sorry.  You may want to sift through the Bug Reports forum for any posts about the Wraith/Bog camo to see if that’s where the official response lies. (That’s where I think the most likely place will be)

Thanks & that is why I gripe so much about the poor patch notes in this game. Patch notes should be the end answer for the question "was this changed" every time. I wish WG would improve in that area their notes have so much left out creating unnecessary confusion & mistrust on issues just like this.

T32-A took clear camo paint for the added concealment value before today's update.

So premium  tanks with paint/skins now do not have an added camo value based on that thread post from Max & clear is the only camo that can be added to them even thought the price of the tanks is equal to or in some cases higher than those that have a camp on them. Strange change by WG guess they are looking for more ways to monetize premium tanks after sale. Thanks all for your help.

Edit:

For 250 gold each I want something other than clear that is for sure.

Making the camo bonus optional to “reduce up front vehicle costs” is honestly kinda lame.  Like you said, camo bonus or not they’re still charging EXTRA for that skin in the first place.  If the only camo option is clear just include the camo bonus with the tank purchase.  Don’t charge more for a paint job only to ask them to pay again for a bonus that used to be baked in.  When you’re already over charging for those reskins to begin with the least they can do is not make you pay even more.

This change has been made to allow them to get more money for additional camo purchases. Reducing prices was just silly excuse because the prices weren’t reduced. Maybe they are just not that raised.
Don't rush me, I'm waiting for the last moment!

Just get the 30 day camo options. You would get the silver back within a game or two. I wouldn't advise spending gold due to the change.

Wait what ?

But "skinned" version always had "built-in" camo therefore had better camo value then same "unskinned" tank since "skin" = "camo" just a fancy one. This why purchasing camo for them was unavailable (since they already have one) and this exactly why they cost more then regular versions (if you count the difference you'll see that difference =  permament 4 season camo value in gold).

You saying that all re-skin premiums now also have to purchase camo ?

Yep & honestly this move makes zero sense to me the BOG mainly is just dumb. I never waste silver on camp for premium tanks (I am sure someone will say to do that but even then clear should not be the ONLY option). The fact that they did this to Monster Tanks I also find shocking.
