Hi, again! I have just a bit more news for you this morning!

 

It's football season — as in the pigskin, Monday nights, Any Given Sunday, Friday Night Lights (you get the idea).

 

Until the end of the month, you can score a special sport-themed style and pick-up a position team of Premium vehicles for a big discount!

 

Please be aware that "Touchdown" is non-historical and has a +3 bonus to vehicle concealment on all types of maps. 

 

If you'd like to check out the new style, please peruse the following article: New Style: From the Playfield to the Battlefield!

 

Football Style and Tank Position Teams

 

Also, shout-out to KRZYBoop for getting some awesome art of the tanks together for this article!

 

Thanks, everyone! See you out on the battlefield :izmena:

Will the camo be available in-game for gold?

I wouldn't hold my breath.  wargaming vastly prefers to artificially limit supply by making virtually everything premium shop only...

Agreed. I would like one tank from two of the teams...but really don’t want to buy $95 bundles to get them. It seems like lately everything is bundled up to about $100

I don't want to question the marketing strategy of yours, as it must be working since you keep doing it over and over again, and only add.. less bundles, please.

Please stop it with these clown camos. This needs to stop it's so stupid and ugly. We need MORE HISTORICAL CAMOS! Not stupid football, not ugly soceer or hideous clown paint jobs we NEED MORE HISTORICAL CAMOS! Also give us the option for us to sell these stupid camos and the silly emblems like that dumb meathead puppet or the periodic table Wargamming 20 year anniversary emblem that we got for free.

i call soccer bias.

this is the NA server. FOOTBALL is more popular than SOCCER in North America.

you had styles available for simple completion in SOCCER.

you had styles available for endurance completion in SOCCER

you had styles available for gold in SOCCER

you only have ONE style available for ONLY CASH for FOOTBALL

 close the NA server as it DOES NOT SERVE US! !

This is a horrible looking camo and looks half-(BLEEEP).  Plus it costs way too much.  You

want 2500 equivalent gold value for this?  The answer is definitely no.

Soooo, +3 camo.....is that over and above what normal camo has, or is it just the ordinary camo bonus.

 

Also, the camo bonus is supposed to vary depending on the tank category.

You CAN turn them off.

You expect to sell free things for credits?  Wow.  Try selling air.

I really wish these camos came bundled with a few x5 missions, like what they did with the Sabaton package.  I mean for the same price, they seem a bit pricey for what they are considering Sabaton came with 15 x5 XP missions.  Furthermore, on the EU server, camo's come bundled with x5 xp missions, so why not on NA????

 

If not x5 xp missions, why not tie it to charity donations or something.  Just makes WG look greedy to sell just the camo without any community benefits.

+3 is the norm for Lights (and mediums), + 2 for heavies and +4 for TDs.  The football camo works correctly on all classes as tested by me.

WG apparently isn’t aware that interest in pro football has dropped precipitously since their SJWs have injected politics into what is supposed to be a fun time and escape from reality. 

 

Football has been tainted with that, and now that’s what people think about when they see camo like this. 

 

More historic camo, not clown camo, please.

Uh...yeah, if you could just stop with the crap offers; that'd be great.

 

I can't believe people actually get these $100 bundles.  Offer the same tanks just naked without all of the unneccesary fluff.

WG may make more money this way.

 

$35 for a tank by itself is more $$$ than someone saying NO to $100 for a bundle.

 

If 10 people will by the $35 tank and not a $100 bundle, that's $350 more.  But hey, what do I know?  I'm just a designer, not a salesmen.

Do we get gold or credits for already owned tanks in the bundles?

 

edit-

I googled an effective answer "buy gold tank bundle but already own one of the tanks"
