Heres the kick in the teeth.

Your paying for a tank package 70% off lets say.

Now you pay full price for camo, or wait for a sale.

It bothers me theydont offer you a personal offer or a chance to buy camo for them all at 70% off WHEN you buy the tank.

As has been said WG has been giving out free camo Vouchers since last year. I semi-agree that the decision to produce Premium tanks without including the clear camo for tanks with special paint jobs 'seems' cheap on the surface but since WG has been giving us gold, camo Vouchers, and War Chests that always contain gold, the only reason to spend a dime on anything in the game is because you want to. 

 

If you don't want to, then don't spend money on the game. WG has been very generous with us all since last year.

i put camo on heavy tanks just because i believe every bit helps. it may add almost nothing but since i use crews that have the camo skill, it could help lower the chance of me getting spotted as i try to get to battle.

Yeah it's stupid.  I actually bought an Iron Rain with money and then had to get four clear camos for it.  

 

Had to do the same with the Rover 237, same situation applies to the Steadfast but never bothered adding the Camo on her.

I want to buy camo, if its for a premium, I just dont want to buy it at full price when I am purchasing the tank. It would be nice if they just said "Hey, thanks for buying this tank/bundle would you like to buy ___ camo vouchers at 50% or reduced price... this is how many you need to paint the tanks you bought that you dont own, how many would you like to buy?"

 

Just for convience sake. Im not complaining to hard, its a small thing, it just annoys me a bit.

When you're trying to cross the gap on Mountain Pass that camo may save your butt.

This and also you can just use silver if you really feel the need. But regardless it’s on sale. Heavies don’t need camo so who really cares

Fair point but most heavies go to the valley in my games, plus there’s usually a light popping up over the ridge and no amount of camo is going to save you then

but still fair point made, in certain situations it may prove useful +1

I certainly wouldn’t waste a free camo voucher on a clear camo for a heavy, if it added a camo change or a clear on a light or TD then yeah

But, after thinking about it, I still think we are getting so much that complaining about having to put camo on a free (very good) tank is a bit much

I remember the days when you got very little, and anything like a prize tank was low tier or very average (motherland/fatherland excepted) there were others, but nothing like this good tank after good tank, that Russian TD is exceptional imo

They still doing  the 50% off camo for VE day arent they? Can get camo discounted for now. I spent near 1000 gold last night putting perm camo on a lot of my tanks. 

 

I understand the issue, its indirectly alleviated by several other things going on now. We have a lot of opportunities for free or discounted camo. I'd rather not pay full price for it or have it tacked on to the price of a tank.

I think you're missing the point. 

 

Logic does not apply here from the player perspective.

 

All that matters is that wargaming wants you to spend gold to put clear camo on a tank. In their game. They can do whatever they want. It's up to you to comply or not. 

 

Doesn't matter if it's a brawling tank or a popcorn machine.

 

They want you to be continually invested in the gold economy.

 

To keep you playing. Hopefully to part your hard earned money to buy gold in the future whether for premium time etc ...

Tend to agree. If the camo isnt a visible thing.... just pay for the rng theoretical camo #. No thanks.
