Until recently clear camouflage was an option for those, who did not want to forgoe a camo bonus, while keeping the original appearance of a tank in question.

 

The original and general deal with camouflage was, that a player paid for alternative cosmetics. The camobonus were an additional incentive on top of that.

 

The Eisenregen changed this. Not only have players to pay a hefty price for the tank itself, they get a weird product with german inscriptions, english naming and modules, which are a mixture of english and german wording. On top of that this tank has no improved camouflage rating, although it has cosmetics attached to it already. 

 

Clear camouflage has no productive value attached to it. No designer had to sit down and create and adjust an alternate cosmetics.

 

It might be fine as a matter of personal preference, as a choice between others. But to charge real money for clear camouflage, when it is the only option to get a permanent bonus, is utterly despicable, begging my pardon.

 

That is even worse than charging for reticle dots in an egoshooter. At least an alternate reticle dot has some kind of value attached to it.

Lol

it’s a free to play game. 

Extras cost money. 

Pay or don’t pay is up to you. 

I buy camo for my favorite tanks just so Rai’s cats can maintain the lifestyle they’re accustomed to.

Sure, but now they started charging for no extras.

Save a cat, clearcoat a tank! I've paid for camo on some tanks that I wish had the clear option at the time to keep the "custom" look it already had (ex. the Fury). I'm glad this new option exists to address those tanks, but perhaps it would be best to have the bonus built in for tanks that cannot apply camo patterns other than clear (if I'm understanding your post correctly). With that said, I like having options for customizability and I also enjoy supporting the lifestyle standards that cats and other pets deserve.

I kind of agree that it seems underhanded. But on the positive side you can now save gold on the original purchase and camo with silver until the next camo sale. So on the Iron Rain you could save either 400 or 800 gold. 

 

However permacamo is a thing that thrives on the inconveniences involved in renewing... so I wonder how many will actually be patient vs those succumbing or getting caught out...

There are many who agree with much of what you say. If premiums that are painted have ZERO camo value & full price is going to be charged then CLEAR should not be the only choice here

You're paying for an advantage on the battlefield, it's like buying gold ammo. Pay to win essentially.

Except you have to regularly keep it managed since they are temporary paints. Consider how this affects those of us with 400+ tanks in their garage. 

 

Which means what you are really paying for is to not be inconvenienced...or pay to avoid hassle. 

 

That is a very negative model. One I hope they clean up. 

 

I wish I could see the stats on where the money is coming in.. I suspect it is mainly on premium tanks. I hope it is and somewhere down the line they cut out all the rest of the little things.

 

Like xp conversion... who does that? Pay to NOT play? It is so upside down! lol 

 

 


When a person resorts to attacking the other person rather than focusing on the issue (aka argumentum ad hominem), it becomes pretty clear they have nothing else to contribute and are wrong.
