Hms Vanguard is in the shop, with packages including Hms Dreadnought for 115 euros, 94 euros, 58 euros and 46 euros by itself.

but it doesn't look like you can buy Dreadnought on it's own.

Indeed, but there are no separate offers for the Dreadnought alone.

 

PS: USS Charleston has been released too, but only as part of the daily shipment system for new players.

Looks very expensive, would rather buy Jean Bart for similar money.

46€ is the "usual" price for a Tier VIII BB...

Your're right, I think because I usually buy with doubloons I forget that 13000 costs that much.

I'm still tempted but tier 8 is quite hard.

Well that's an odd way of doing it. Release them as a package a week after the JB and a 33% off coupon. Don't know about any one else but I've spent my game budget for this month....

 

Presumably Dreadnought will be available individually eventually, but I can't see it being a great incentive to spend £££ on a package.

I wonder if the coupon will "switch on" after 48hrs or so, just like it did for the Jean Bart?

Dreadnought - Other than a port queen I'm not really sure just how many people would actually play T3 enough to justify the bundle price. Maybe once it's on sale alone it'll be more worth while.

 

Vanguard - Watched Flamu's video and it looks like an interesting ship with accurate but low calibre guns which is great for a cruiser killer however it sits at T8 where it'll face T10 BB's in 50%+ of it's matches and thats a huge problem considering the armour scheme and high citadel.

Pretty daring of WG to market another T8 Prem in the current MM.

 

I would be tempted to buy Vanguard but I hardly play any T8 at the moment cause it sucks.

 

So it’s a pass for me

Dreadnought is a fun ship.  HE citadels vs same tier cruisers

Vanguard will require a cruiser mindset because she's easy to damage.  She certainly turns well and the guns are accurate but you'll be stuck in the HE meta.

Weird release tactic... Not nice for dreadnought fans, who consider this, probably the most important ship ever.

I hope, we will get it soon alone...

Theres coupons in ARSEnal and different ones for "real monsy shop" with are time limited.

I got one on 30% 3 days but its only for normal packages. So it cant be used on "special offers"

Completly useless since i already have ships i wanted from the shop.

 

P.S

Just met first vanguard in battle

Seems to be good bbraian since:

1.It blobbed well with other BBraians in place far far away from nearest cap

2.It run away from t6-7 cruisiers like bitten dog.

3.It burn proper way using R on first fire.

4.It wasnt able to hit or sink anything

Only thing was not tested was gliding on borderline and hiding on J1 but he was close.

 

So proper BBrajan in other words.

The first and the last battleships built. They belong together.

"Dear players! Unfortunately due to technical issues Dreadnought is missing her native permanent camouflage visuals and ship carousel preview. This does not affect gameplay or economy in any way, and will be fixed in the nearest update – 0.7.11. Sorry for the inconvenience. "

 

It's like delivering a new car that has not been painted to its new owner. "Don't worry we will paint it later"

 

Another ship released with an error - just like the Aigle.

 

(Though of course, the Aigle error was more serious)

 

WG make so many careless errors I wonder at the level of testing they do.
