Does the Christmas camo expire Feb 6 and not usable in the future. I am asking this because I paid money to try and complete more than one nations Christmas. This would suck if it expires like all the other Christmas rewards. Thanks for any input.

Well I would assume that even if they expire you can use them during the next holiday season

I'd be very surprised if the Christmas camo patterns go away.

I would think they stayed in your inventory like anything else you bought or earned.

Pretty sure once you acquire the camo, it is yours for however long you have the account.   On the other hand, you need to apply the tank discounts given during the event before that date, or those will be lost.    SO long as you apply the discount but say you do not purchase the tank it was applied to, you will have the discount for however long you have the account.    Similar to the Swedish event and discounts on tanks in that line.

Holiday Ops camo is not going to expire. More over, you will be able to take it off and use it on other tanks. I got this info from Russian presentation of WG about this event

They can pry that Chinese camo out of my cold dead hands :-)  That's not coming off my Type 59.

If you have the xamo, but have not applied it yet, will they take it away, or does it stay in your camo paint inventory?

The things that expire are the things you need to redeem

 

The female crews and any discounts ot tanks that haven't been applied will expire.

Any female crew that you have assigned to a tank and any discounts that are applied to a tank(Whether that tank has been purchased or not) will stay.

LOL, me too.  Did everyone do this? 

It just seemed like the perfect place for that tacky gold camo.  Shiny!

If you want to make sure the camo is saved, just in case, you can put it on a vehicle and remove it later and put it on another vehicle ... I just tested this to make sure that you can remove and switch these to different vehicles after applying them.

Yes, but will they allow us to eventually use it on all tiers, or will it be relegated to only Premium 8's and Tier 10's?  I just got the Chinese camo, but have only one Chinese tank at Tier 6 and it's a long grind to Tier 10.  And I don't really need or want any of the Chinese Tier 8 premiums since the only Chinese tank and crew I have are on the 59-16.

Anybody know what happens to the female crew if you don't have them assigned?

You don't want the premium WZ TD? or the WZ111?

 

I've got the 111 and its a blast to play since its mobile and has a decent gun with good HEAT rounds. The TD on the other hand I haven't played but I've heard nothing but praise for it.

wargaming makes a special point that anything you purchase or obtain will always stay with your account ,,, except when they take it away from everyone

 

when wargaming takes something from EVERYONES account and it is something that you paid money for then their reply is always "we didnt remove anything from your account"

WE REMOVED IT FROM EVERYONES.... if you had the FV215B tier 10 uk heavy tank and then got the super C tier 10 heavy tank .. they removed all camo and emblems and inscriptions "YOU" paid for and put them on super C

they did this without asking anyone if they wanted this done they simply did it .. so as to christmas camo if wargaming wants to make it go poof ,,there isnt anything anyone can do about it

They took the female crew member that was "gifted" to me when the last update hit. I hadn't assigned her to anything because I was going to use her to fill the extra crew slot in the Badger.

But, I guess since the gift policy is that if the "giftee" doesn't claim it within a certain timeframe, it goes back to "gifter", and WG was the "gifter", they get to have her back. I just wish WG had notified us about the "use-or-lose" on her like they are with the holiday stuff.

Stupid question...I finished the "Traditional" Christmas album the other day but I'm not finding the camo with the other camouflage options...where might it be lurking?
