So when the discount was last on, I purchased a Black Widow set to swap around so I would own a spare full style.

 

Unfortunately, I assumed it was like any of the universal camos we've received in that it could be demounted and re-mounted on any tank... but it seems that's not the case for this one style? But it seems to be stuck on the tank I happened to have up when I purchased it (not thinking it would matter), which was (lol) the AC4, which I have never played a battle in and don't plan on any time soon.

 

Is this a bug? If it's not a bug is there anything I can do? Can I get it refunded or at least tied to a different tank? It's "unused", if that matters.

Styles are rented for one tank at a time and are not demountable.

So how come all the styles we've been awarded have been universally applicable or at least applicable by nation? Remember, Black Widow is literally the ONLY universal style in the store.

 

EDIT: I'm not disputing what you're saying, I'm just wondering why it's completely inconsistent. And given this is the case, is this something you can even send a ticket for?

Have they added any notification into the interface yet as to whether something is universal or not? It strikes me as a very easy addition that would help everyone concerned.

Most likely the styles that are gifts or rewards are demountable as they don't expire, but the Black Widow style and other ingame purchasable styles are for a fixed number of battles and don't transfer to other tanks to my understanding.

Black Widow is not a rental camo though. You purchase it for gold and it has no expiration. 

 

If this is not a bug, it's literally the only camo you can purchase for gold which is locked to a single tank. This is inconsistent, unexpected, and I had no warning of this.

All camo used to be fixed to a tank either permanently if purchased with gold or for a fixed period if purchased with credits and either way not transferable, when Styles came in camo became transferable albeit you can only remove it by replacing it with another camo.  Styles on the other hand are purchased with credits and expire after a fixed number of battles.  This is consistent with the previous scheme but enhanced for gold purchased camo.

Apologies, but as it is gold purchased try replacing it with another style or camo and it should go back to show it is available.

It is, but only for that one tank. That's the issue.

It looks like this does the trick, thanks wasaabi!

 

Just had to remove the black widow style, add a different one then apply and exit. Could then see the black widow style available (garage icon) for other vehicles.

 

Edit: It looks like I can only use this style on the same nation as originally equipped on.

I have put Black Widow on a few tonks in the understanding they are NOT demountable. Edit: I mean interchangeable.

Is it simply the term "Universal" that has caused confusion, if so then yeah sort of, I mean only being allowed on Prem's and T10s is hardly universal.

Even CW reward camo's can only be fitted once I thought as well. Has this changed?

Ive try football camo, demount it from T44, and put it on batchat. It works, no problem, even without using other camo to demount it. So now theres semi-universal camo, and true universal camo. Hopefully WG can give accurate info about them later on.

Okay, see, this i what I THOUGHT should work, but when I dismount it, I don't see it available for other vehicles. So maybe it IS a bug? But why just for me then? This just confuses things even more.

Did you add another style on tho, or just remove it?

So to clarify, if I apply the eastern front style to a tank, I can move it to another tank at some point? I'd like to know for sure before using it. The same goes for the  fan-2018 soccer camo reward, I applied that expecting I'd be able to carry that on through tanks, is that the case ?

I put camo on (the reason I had the AC 4 up is because it's my only British tonk above T2, and I wanted to buy a basic set of British camo to have in the garage in case I start a Brit line later)

The soccer camos are transferable. I've definitely moved them from tank to tank. Literally every style I've ever received as a reward or promotion was transferable.

Okay a small update. I purchased a second British tank to see if the camo would be available to other tanks of the same nation - and they were. So It seems that style can be dismounted and remounted, but only within the nation you originally bought it for.

 

So now the question is, I know refunds of corrections are only offered on "unused" tanks, but can I get this fixed for camo? I don't even want a refund necessarily, I just want them tied to a more useful nation, like the USSR.
