I'm going to keep a neutral tone here as much as possible. I'm not especially interested in the items being sold, I'm just reporting an observation - that WG is gradually changing the events to selling players less and charging them more. Specifically, players are being steered more and more into spending money on in-game consumables, like flags, camos, and premium time, by bundling up these items with a chance of getting missions for early access to tech tree ships, or some other lottery-like prize. Or, in the case where there is a permanent digital good, like a premium ship or a permacamo, players are paying more than the value of the ship or camo, an action justified by the inclusion of additional consumables in the package "deal". Case in point, the four German T10 permacamo available for free if you can collect 600 tokens. Except, as others have already pointed out, it is impossible to collect 600 tokens for free. Instead, you have to buy a 7500 doubloon package which gives you missions than on completion will drop the required 600 tokens. I remind you, fair reader, that the regular cost of a T10 permacamo is 5000 doubloons. There are a few special ones which are more expensive, like the space camo for Shimakaze, or the crazy Yamato one with the scorpion, but the German ones are really not so extraordinary, just a nice paint job. So you are paying 1.5x the cost of a regular permacamo, as well as being made to do the "work" as missions, for a very minimal cosmetic benefit. Yeah, I know, WG have done this since way back up to a point, selling new ship bundles which cost more than the ship by adding in a 10 point captain, doubloons, or other items. But it's definitely getting way worse. In fairness, the Dockyard event quite generously gave away a Graf Spee for free, without horrendous grind or demanding time gating. To all those aiming for Odin, though, I will simply quote Mr. T "I pity the fool..."
