I'm thinking about getting camo paint for the V S35 CA tank. The question is, how much of a difference does camo paint make? Does it just reduce your being spotted by just a few meters? Hate to waste gold.

It adds a 5% cammo bonus

It increases your base camo rating by 5% if I recall, as for tanks base camo values there are a few sites that can tell you this information, one of them being

 

http://www.wotinfo.n...camo-calculator

 

I can't comment on how accurate the figure are though.

Don't use gold to buy camo, use silver, you might get sick of seeing the same camo all the time if you get permanent camo. Save your gold for premium time and tanks.
REMEMBER-It's just a game.

So, if you can be spotted by the Reds at 350m let's say; then 350*.05=17.5 meter reduction. Not sure if it's worth bothering with. Thanks for responding.

For this tier V tank, that's 50,000 silver per week. Might be worth trying for a week to see if it makes a diff.

As the rest of the tankers said, 5%!  I like to have perm camo :3 but I do have a few tanks with silver!

Don't forget modifiers stack and increase.

So camo paint +5

But camo net plus +25

And train that camo skill/perk +?

Add them together plus the game gives a little bonus for each added modifer.

At high tiers everyone does this.

Or camo paint plus camo skill plus the new quiet driving skill/perk and you can be invisible on the move...

Think of it this way. That 17.5 meters could be the difference between you getting spotted or not. 

 

Good example, me and a buddy in Hellcats in Prokhorovka. We are both next to each other at H1. I have camo, he doesn't. He kept getting spotted and the only reason why I every had to move was to dodge shells coming after him. 

 

Plus, tanks just look cooler with a nice paint job.

Arty's are far from being unbalanced so there's no plans to nerf them.  Reducing the number of Arty's in high tier matches where they are the most powerful is something that we've considered but we're not seeing large number of Arty's being played in those matches.  Arty's are a way for players to play the game in a completely different way.  Some player only ever play Arty's so removing them is not an option.  I'd like to find a way to change the Arty viewpoint so its more realistic but that's one of those "some day" tasks I haven't gotten to yet.

A while back, while researching other WoT-related things, I came across this interesting bit. Don''t recall where from, but it struck me as important enough to save the text. Also bearing in mind this was relative to the PC version:

 

"It depends on what tank you are planning on putting the paint on. Only TDs get +5%, lights get 4%, mediums get 3%, heavies and SPGs only get +2%. (Note: the camo is in +% units (base value + camo bonus), not multiplied (base value + base value x camo bonus) so a maus get the same camo boost as a B1.)"

 

Now, it may be different on the Xbox and we are all getting an across-the-board +5% (in which case I will revisit the camo question on several tanks). But if the above it true, then for TD's and Lights it is a big difference, whereas with Heavies and SPG's it is mostly for looks.

 

Edited to add: recently I was playing around with the Camo Calculator, and it seems to hold more or less true that within each tank class you get X meters benefit from camo paint. A respectable amount for TD/LT and very minor for HT/SPG. Again, that site is for PC so it may be different here.

I'm drinking the cool-aid. Did the silver route for now just to try it out.

I usually use this system:

How long am I going to be in this tank?

 

Short grind = week of camo

Long grind = month of camo

Keeper = month of camo until it's on sale then permanent

 

But you'll almost never catch me in a match streaking. Nope, my tanks do not leave the garage naked.

I have permanent camo on almost all my tanks. I never bought it for the full price. Most of them I bought when it was -70% before the urban was released, so I got that for free. The rest I bought on the regular camo deals when it was -50%.

Thanks to xRoni7x for this awesome sig!

For this tier V tank, that's 50,000 silver per week. Might be worth trying for a week to see if it makes a diff.

 

Especially if you're going to grind up to the next tank and can do it in a week.  Like others have said I save my gold camo for premium tanks and elite tanks I"m not going to sell.  Although wish I hadn't bought perm camo for my Chaffee or it'd be gone from the garage.

all of my tanks are camo'd.  those that I keep are permanent.....I look at it this way - any +% is an advantage no matter how small.  If I can remain unseen for a meter more - that might be the difference.  Also, I gotta spend my money on something! :)

I have a question. 

 If I was to buy 4 different camo for my tank for different environments would the game automatically selects the correct camo for each match?

Yes.
