So i have purchased both thr iron rain borsig as well as the t32 a proto, which both have custom paint jobs. 

 

And to my surpise in order to get the camouflage bonus for both these tanks you have to pay exta. Be it silver for temporary or 200 gold per slot for the permanent bonus. which is crazy as some people have purchased the more expensive packages 

 

You are only given transparent as the option.

If they going to have this as their new pratice to rob us out of more money, they cold at the very least open up all the camo options so we can layer the tanks custom paint with the camo like what can be done with tanks like the t34 88 etc

This is inexcusable.

I think this idea makes sense. I also think these prices are in line with previous pricing and don't reflect a "savings" to the customer that used to pay for the exclusive camo. But that's my tinfoil hat talking, I'm sure.

There are already a couple threads about this. WG said that not all tanks with special paint schemes are sold with camo to keep the cost down and just like any premium without camo at all it can or has to be purchased to get the bonus. I think the issue that brought it up was a bug or mistake where some of these tanks didn't have the camo option in customization sections at first but did later and players had questions to say the least.

That's not really an excuse they can use. It already has paint. It should have the bonus. You already pay $50 for a single tank, they can keep that to themselves.

I agree, didn't happen to see the tanks get any cheaper on the contrary most of em are 60 bucks now. Just what they said and why some of the players that had had the affected tanks for a while were pizzed when they saw it.

Ya I saw a thread where they had quietly changed these tanks to not include camo to reduce the cost.  Funny thing is, the cost doesn't look reduced.   These tanks are too expensive.  Please go back to the cool 50% prices, and 50% bundles of tanks.  I'll buy those!

That's where bulls#it is shining through. There is no cost. A tank is just bit in a database.

They also advertise the tank as having "great" camo.... But don't mention anywhere about having no bonus and you have to pay extra for it. Thats misleading and illegal in many places

 

Its a money grab

That may be but the people, places, and infrastructure that arrange those bits on said database and bring them to us have to make a living and WG is a company that must turn a profit from its digital product and services to stay in business. The alternative is we all find other games or past times to migrate to cause this one went broke. 

 

Having said that I don't agree with everything they do and the post above this one is why. That is in the add/description and is false advertisement.

This is like McDonald's selling you a hamburger then after you buy telling you that to keep cost down we no longer put any meat on it that will be extra...Yet still charge you full price for both...lol.

I'm not saying that they should give away the tanks for free. I'm saying that the rationale for forcing the user to pay for literally nothing is bullcrap.

The intent is to reduce cost for the players.  I don’t agree with this, but just to play Devil’s Advocate: There were prior complaints about having to pay more for reskins that they couldn’t apply a camo bonus to.  Nevermind that the camo bonus used to be baked-in, players did ask for it to be optional so they wouldn’t have to pay extra if they didn’t want to or could apply the camo bonus if they chose to.  

 

Tanks like Iron Rain and the T32-A would easily have a base gold value 1000-1500 more than what they are if the camo bonus was included.  Regardless, players would still complain that they’re overpriced.  Damned if you do, damned if you don’t.

 

and for the record: If a tank, reskin or not, does not come with a baked-in Camouflage bonus, and WG expects you to pay extra for Camouflage, then you should have the full range of camo schemes available for that Nation.  Or just stop making skins that you aren’t willing to allow regular camo(not this Clear-only crap) on. That’s my personal opinion.

To keep the cost down, lol. Makes it sound like they think they're doing you a favour by not charging you for paint. 

 

If you're paying $50 for a digital tank, I'm pretty sure they can throw in some free digital paint without it affecting their bottom line. Not like there's a supply and demand issue here.

Then give the option for more than "clear". That is a joke on us players right? It is clear after all I am sure from the gameplay that is some here's favorite color...lol

 

EDIT:

BTW I know you do not agree and were just as you said playing devils advocate but this is a bad move by WGCB since the price did NOT come down on those tanks the T32 proto is a great example of this.

well, the Bizon costs more than  the regular T-103 and it has no special cammo (it costs 2,100 more than the regular T-103)

Bizon=12,600 T-103=10,500

Bizon's camo rating= 14

T-103's Camo Rating = 14

yet the Bizon costs 2,100 more...

all camo on Bizon has to be bought and it uses the Standard camos too, so it is a extra 800 gold in order to gain camo bonuses...

I have the T32-A and assumed that because I am not allowed to apply the other Camo options, that it automatically had the Camo bonus built in!

 

I DON’T want to pay extra just to have the same paint scheme.

 

I believe that any tank that is sold and not allowed to apply personalised Camo, should have the Camo bonus built in.

 

I didn’t see anywhere on the Store screen in the game, that told us of this petty, money grab!

 

WG has just shown why we should put off buying their new tanks until AFTER they have been out for a long time, as it looks like we can’t expect the complete truth from them unless it’s dragged out of them!

Yeah it's a weird policy on some tanks like the Audace which isn't even the normal French blue color but tan like the super Sherman.
