You get the tank, but you can't load regular camo, you have to grind the event to get the special camo.

Does this mean, unless you grind to get the special camo, you'll never get to put camo on the tank?


Yeah, I'm back. Let's not make a big deal about this.

Which camo are you talking about from the event?:playing:

 

The one you get at level 65?

 

I just got that camo. It just seems like a certificate that you get for the camo and you can choose any camo able tank to put it on.

 

It can't be put on any of the 3 tanks from the event.:justwait:

Alot of the imaginary tanks cannot equip camo, just look at your Scavenger.

They just look so plain, I didn’t realize that was their camo.

Besides, you cannot seriously think adding camo is going to cover up that neon glowing hornets nest in the trunk?

All of the Defender or "Secret Labs" type tanks have that same camo... darkish gray with lots of test markings and warning signs on them. The T28 Defender and IS-3 Defender are similarly decked out. As others have said, the camo can't be changed, but on the bright side, it's free every match, and never needs to be replaced.

I agree that the tanks from the event could use some sort of camo.:justwait:

I guess that it is only for the unlock attachment the camo is lock like the defenders, or the old Halloween tanks.

You mustn't hide in bushes with the Y series. The engine sparks ignite the bushes, and the burning bush is a dead giveaway!  :)


Don't be fooled by my winrate. I'm really a unicum in disguise.

Either a dead giveaway or God..

 

Seriously though, why have the open boxes for the different season camos?

Confusion re the camo on the birthday tanks draws from something unique about them. All other fantasy tanks have the camo built-in and the camo field is filled and greyed out. In these y5 things, the camo appears to be on the tank, but the camo field has a plus in it which seems to indicate that no camo bonus is in place and is also a visual clue that your tank is not yet complete. . . so it is anoying for us OCD types. Now, when you get the attachment, very little changes - you do add it in the normal attachment area and the visual appears to simply change color from yellow to blue. . . . so I guess they took the impurities out of the rocket fuel?

 

anyhow, I suspect the fact that the camo option on the y5 tanks is populated iwth the + instead of a greyed out special Camo is a mistake that'll be fixed in the next update.

On the plus side... none of these non-binary things will ever be in the "realistic" battle mode, which is the only place where the actual color of your camo really makes a difference.
