I mean still get to pick your different versions for winter, desert ect.  But the click three times is just dumb.  Does anyone just buy "winter" camo?

And if you buy gold camo, you should be able to change color.

Just my $.02 for the day.

I'm confused ...

 

Thought you could already purchase three seasonal camos with just one Click ...

 

They total-up as you pick them - one click each, big deal.

 

What am I missing?

 

Explain it better.

TLDR, NA got screwed for Christmas deals this year, but kappa.  There are probably quite a few people that just get normal camo, but no desert/winter camo.  That's mainly the reason why there is the option to only buy one type of camouflage.

You assume too much, boy

 

It said that you had played 0 battles with 800 forum posts when I posted, but instead it was WG's crappy forum system that lied to me.  I'll go back to XCOM now.

I rather they gave us the option to sell the camo back for credits when we sold the tank or let us use it on a similar tank of the same country.

I still don't understand why people buy Winter camo.  I bought it and hate that I did.  There are currently only four Winter maps.  Winter Himmelsdorf - city map so it is unnecessary.  Kharkov - city map so it is unnecessary.  Windstorm - a lot of the map is city and the non-city sight lines are pretty ugly; maybe necessary there.  Winter Ruinberg - mostly city map with not the greatest city lines in the field anyway; maybe necessary.

 

It just doesn't make sense.

I was thinking the same.  Or just let us dismount and use it for another tank.

But it has been painted on the tank. 

 

So you want the crew to chip the paint off, recycle it (somehow), and than paint it on another tank? 

 

That sounds like too much work for that poor crew.

Seems I have a winter camo on all my keepers as my armorers are kind of picky about that.

 

They would rather paint the entire tank rather than having to repair it because it was damaged. Go figure !

Welcome to the world of video games, where we don't have to worry about that. 

 

What else do you want? The tank locked for 24 hours after buying the paint to let it dry? Or locked for 24 hours after you get a map that uses different camo for the same reason?

 

The ability to buy multiple camouflage paintjobs with gold and be able to swap them at will is one of those stupid things that should have been implemented years ago but dumb Russian game designers think they make more money by making people pay each time they want to swap camo. And since it's gone on this long, I guess there must be a lot of idiot gamers doing that.

 

I have a few tanks I'd buy spare camo for but won't because I don't want to essentially throw out the money I've already spent on my current camo paints.

i also... don't have 3 tanks, with 3 seperate paint jobs. Obviously you buy buckets of paint, with gold being a life time supply.

Erlenberg and sacred valley are both winter maps despite the lack of snow.

Low tier tanks don't need one of the camos, I'm not sure which though.

While we are on the subject how about just offering "unique"(using that term loosely) camos seperate to the tanks because those black editions were lazy ways to introduce a "new" premium

I know there are a lot of millennial have ADHD and all but having to click 3 different versions of camo only takes a few seconds. :facepalm:
