You guys remember way back when WG hosted the contest for the best player designed camos? And the winners were to have those camos go into the game? What the hell happened to those??? Verdun was the only one we've ever seen and I don't even think it won first place. Someone go dig in the old forum threads please. I'm too lazy.

I don't remember, but if it happened again...

I played TDs before it was cool. It was also never cool to begin with.

It was quite a smart decision by WG. They had the playerbase design camouflages so they could sell it back to us for money. Why work when your customers can work for you? Maybe they will have a game design contest...

I remember, because I was the 3rd place. They weren't meant to be put into the game. I think it was 1st place from all regions put to a vote in WG for which one will be the camo in game. In this case, the Verdun Forest was the one chosen and I think it was from someone in RU. Rest got an in-game medal and some gold as runners up. (:

They need to do those kill a dev/mod get gold events agin, that kill the player(concep,juju,etc) for gold, and the hall of fame based on aces. Our devs are so stale.

I find it hard to believe verdun got first, it looks too plain and standard to have won, unless they weren’t looking for camos like the other “rare” ones

I’m sampling the retiree life, of Blitz forums, not sure if I’ll be returning, but thanks for all of your advice and fun.

Verdun shows up as a mission prize every other day.  I used it a few times but it’s starting to seem a bit bleh.  Too much like what you’d see painted on a toy.  And you’ve still got to pay to repaint the tank after every game.  THAT really ticks me off as an unnecessary charge unless the tank got killed.
The point of the game is to win.  The purpose of the game is to have fun.  They are not mutually exclusive.

That just means that most people prefer camo that actually resembles camo instead of comic books, candy wrappers, and cereal box toys. Not hard to believe at all really.

well why would you vote on it if you could just use one of the traditional ones there and not have to pay a gold premium when you have to pay to resupply too? No need for sarcasm sassy pants, it was just an opinion hence the “I”

Because there's not enough of them, and there are infinitely better realistic camo schemes out there that could be added to the game. Just look at WWII Panzer pictures, or the camos available for WOT PC. The game needs more variety of realistic camos. It's one of my biggest gripes with the game. Verdun was a nice addition to the game. I'm glad it won, but we need more. Starting with Hinterhalt-Tarnung. It's criminal that it isn't included in a WWII tank game. It's the most famous armor camo pattern of the whole war. People like realistic camos, I've seen a lot of the "Seasonal Hunt" digital camo in battle that they added recently. I bought it for about 10 tanks myself.

I did a digital microdot and hoped they would use it, I would like some Urban class camo at some point.
