Charleston - How can more veteran players get it?

As per the title, how can people get this ship on experienced accounts?

 

I've always enjoyed the St Louis and having a Premium version of it so that I don't have to dedicate a Captain would be very nice. It's only Tier 3 so it would be a cheapo in the shop which I'd happily throw a couple of quid at for the fun value.

@MrConway is there any chance that this ship will become available for the wider player base?

Maybe they'll put it in Armada Bundle :Smile_trollface:

Quite obvious I think...

 

 

 

WG will try their utmost best to lure in new players with free ships (Diana, Texas, Ishizushi,...), re-kindle the enthusiasm of those who already quit with even more free ships (Prinz Eugen, Guilio Cesare, Ishizushi,...). Those who are already "on the hook" don't need attention or catering, and can (and have to) use the good old CreditCard Mk.I to get additional content... Or grind their backsides off in long-duration short-sequential marathons with sometimes absurd requirements (11 British Torpedo hits back before the DD's were a thing anyone? Or 20 T8+ Russian ship frags?)

@BeauNidl3 would not surprise me if we are asked to complete some ridiculous grindy mission chain similar to the one announced to get Dreadnought through December, in order to get Charleston

Exactly, right now she is available as a reward for new players only, but we will make her available for everyone in future as well. I cannot disclose when and how exactly just yet.

No need to worry, she won't stay exclusive. Stay tuned for more information.

Next up is the Dreadnought being available via missions in-game. ;)

In the meantime, does one get extra Filthy Seal-Clubber Points for sinking one...?

Speaking for all old players with 19pt IFHE Cleveland/Worcester captains and questionable ethics -- we urgently need the Charleston.

I'm not sure this is even true as I'm a new player here in EU (or was a month or so ago) & I didn't get/haven't gotten a free T3 Charleston.

I don't run a 19 pter on my StL not even in NA (tho the dedicated Cpt may eventually get there, lol)

rofl, as if they will ever be left alone, rofl - not when there's few seals & many clubbers

you do realize, Sehales, that WoWS is making the same mistake as WoT - screwing up a class type big time - can we spell 'CV' or 'arty'?

It was introduced with the last major update https://worldofwarships.eu/en/news/game-updates/update-0710-halloween/#supply

So you probably just missed it by a few weeks, but don't worry, there is a whole lot of stuff to complete, unlock, research and to do in general.

The ship is simply a premium St.Louis and just like for the veteran players, it will be made available to you via some means in future as well. Just stay stuned for further announcements. ;)

 

Quote from the article:

Quote

This type of Daily Shipment will only be available to players that reach Account Level 2 in their Service Record after the point that Daily Shipments hit the live servers. If you are already at Level 2 or higher when Daily Shipments are launched, you will have no access to this type of Daily Shipment.

CVs are not in a great state and we are currently reworking CVs, but I won't agree or disagree. (I actually like arty in WoT as is.... *runs away*).

Anyway, that is not the topic here. Feel free to create a new thread or join the existing ones for the many topics there are to discuss.

I'm only interested in the ship if it comes equipped with Gramophone Mk II consumable and plays its theme tune on demand, distracting your enemies with the power of the Earworm.

While those lacking self respect put theirs on their Nicholas for Ranked Sprint.

Absolutely I moved my Yamato 19 point commander to Kongo as well.. Just for the record my St.Louis skipper is a 10 pointer and my comment was meant as a joke

On the matter in hand, I rather feel like a twitcher that has heard news of some obscure Lesser Pied Throat Warbler being sighted in a Surrey hedgerow, and is struggling to contain the urge to rush out of work to try and spot the thing...

 

It must be the snow - it's clearly frozen my cerebrum.

I applaud WoWS for offering new players a free Charleston even tho they will encounter the StL if they grind the US Cruiser tech tree line (& most probably will).

Since I have the StL & intend it as a 'keeper' I won't be interested in earning another T3 Cruiser even if it will be free thru some mission or other.

To my mind, WG should just sell it in premium shop for some amount of Doubloons for those who really have to have it.

Lotta good IFHE will do you at tier 3... I have a dedicated St. Louis captain with BoS and FP for the "there's fire everywhere and I have no heal" meta at low tiers.

Why do people want to grind for a t3 premium BB we already got in the silver tech tree called the: Bellopheron?
