Where did the Makarov go?
 

I took a break from WoWs in October-December last year, but I came back just before they purged all the premiums. It was a welcome sight to see a couple new ships, and the Makarov caught my eye. I never got one however, and it hasn't been on sale since, so what happened?

Did it not sell well and so it was removed?

Is it going to be sold again do you think?

 Do you have any solid proof of that? Don't think so.

We do not know whether the ship will be sold again. WG removed most premium ships from sale through both the shop and the tech tree in the update 0.7.1. The ships they kept are according to them "most popular and "comfortable" to play", which is complete bull. So you're out of luck with that ship. It may or might not come back.

Eight years of WoT.

So you have no proof and are just guessing. Typical.

Some people know stuff, other do not.

 

If you need to see the sun go up, to believe it is going up tomorrow, that is your problem. Other people know that before it goes up.

Makarov was one of the victims. However, originally it was the plan not to introduce the Makarov outside of Russia in the first place. There it was a leased ship that was in your port for as long as you had a subscription to a certain mobile telephone provider. When you cancelled the subscription, the ship would be removed. The Makarov isn't really that well known, nor did it create a particular interest from the CC's (whom I doubt even released review footage of it, except Little White Mouse) nor the community. It was released silently in the techtree one or two patches before 0.7.1 "for completionist sake", just as the Katori on EU, without even the slightest of announcements. With 0.7.1, it got removed, and no-one knows it will ever come back.

But only in an inflated bundle. Not really an interesting deal.

And for a short time of 14 days. So you are pressured to either buy it now for a higher price or wait for an undetermined time hoping to get a better deal.

:-( and instead of removing it would not have been better to nerf it a little? As they are going to do with some US CA/CL?

P.S.: I know this is not the right topic, Makarov is but... apologize me.

The new line of USA Cruiser, some from T VII T VIII go to the VI VII (Pensacola es.), and some (Cleveland es.) go from VI to VIII and I think (hope) not with the same features of now.

That can't really be compared as they're being nerfed only to accomodate their new tiers....

 

Other than that I know what you mean, but WG's known marketing strategy (either intential or not) is to introduce a strong vehicle, remove it from the shop and make it available during special sales.

??? What does it mean? Why? Those ships doesn't sail as a premium? Doesnt do exactly as a premium do in the game? Fight! Premium means only an advantage in exp... and training and sometime for some extra consumable, nothing else.

OK, good, so... if this is the reason I hope to see again KUTUZOV in the shop.

Too many people complain when WG touches premium ships. Maybe you should take issue with them.

ColonelPete, people will complain always, whatever you are going to do, they complain because Roma was OP, because Enterprise was meh boat, and so on... . This is not a good reason to remove permanently a ship, expecially if is a famous ship. Random shop is alright, as you told before, to remove permanently is not, and... is also not fair.
