This post is a must-read for anyone who wishes to reclaim any premium ship ever sold in-game. A big thanks to @MrFingers for this post.  

 

https://www.reddit.com/r/WorldOfWarships/comments/9vidaq/psa_policy_for_premium_ship_restoration_got/

 

Previously there was a pretty big discrepancy between servers in terms of requirements to get a reversal of a selling (accidental or not) of a premium ship. On EU only actions from the last 2 months could be looked at, one had to have played a battle in a ship (proving "active ownership") and there was only one clemency per account, ever. On ASIA only actions from the last 12 months could be looked at, with again only one clemency per account, ever. NA on the other hand had 4 clemencies per year, with 5 ships per clemency, but required "active ownership" and could only look into actions in the running calendar year.

This now all got reworked since November 1st, and got harmonised across the globe. Now it boils down to:

  • 1 request every 6 months, but one can add as many ships in 1 request without any limit (you can file 1 request with 20 ships, but not 2 requests with 2 ships, unless the 2nd request happens 6 months after the first one)
  • one has to have the credits & port slot readily available, or the doubloons in case of Perth, Belfast or Kutuzov that got sold during the smoke-rework.

That's it. There is no time limit any more during which one had to apply for a clemency. You can now restore (deliberate) mind f***s/errors regardless of when those happened. So CAT/CBT testers who sold their Iwaki/Arkansas in the early days now, in theory, can get them back. I've tried it yesterday to get the Belfast back I sold during the smoke-changes, and after having to escalate an automated bot-response with the link to the article, I got credited with the ship without an issue. Also, event-ships like the ARP-ones fall under this policy.

 

File a ticket with support: https://eu.wargaming.net/support/en/products/wows/help/8583/8584/

 

EU: click
ASIA: click
NA: click

 

All credit goes to @MrFingers

I went through my "Inventory" looking at the Type 9 Premium Camos I have and matching them to ships I don't have any more and I've got six low tier ships, a T5, T6 and a T7 I've sold!!!

  • Mikasa
  • Emden
  • Tachibana
  • Konig Albert
  • Vampire
  • Campbeltown
  • Marblehead
  • Arizona
  • Hood

So I've asked for those back (no Idea why I sold these!) and used the "In-Game Goods" part of Customer Services to request the Premium Ship Restoration.

Good to know. I once sold my my Nikolai. If I ever decide to go Russian I always can get it back.  

 

But how do you know you have enough credits for that ship?

In the long run. Wouldn't it be beter to make it a permanent feature of the game if there gonna be no more limits? Once bought the ships would stay visible in the tech-tree where you can buy those ships back? Or maybe a new  tab in inventory?  A tab with all your ships ever bought.

 

If support gonna do this manually for each player it's gonna take time and money. A lot of money. It isn't really cost effective. It isn't like WG gets more really money if they do this. Then why do it over and over again?

 

It isn't like I really want that ship back...but if they give me the possibility...maybe why not

 

It isn't really illogical that you always can get a paid ship back;

Wow, it looks like WG need to read their own rules again so I'm surprised that I'm going to have to point them to the new rules - Asked for 9 ships got told only 5 can be done every 6 months.

@MrConway  - it might be an idea to inform your customer service staff when something like this changes!

Honestly, that´s a good question. And i myself wondered why anyone would ever sell...

 

But then i got the Krasny Krim. Aaaand i sold it after trying for a while. I am a cruiser-main but since the KK i understand that someone can´t make a certain ship work at all :fish_boom:

The old Krim had a detection circle bigger than the what the canons could ever hit so far that I can remember. Which meant that a ship (in a 1 vs 1) detected you and you could hit him with your guns

 

That's isn't anymore. made the ship much better.

indeed, that was part of the problem. The Ishizuchi had the same issue, but at least it had armor :cap_viking:

So? :cap_hmm: I might reclaim it then, because the weird boat was quite fun.

Although I never sold or will sell a premium ship, I think that this is awesome. Especially for those who sold a rare premium like the Arkansas.

@Sehales & WG thanks for the change!
