Captains,

 

We’ve received a lot of questions about the distribution method of several work-in-progress ships. Today we have made a decision about three of them and decided to share this information with your early for the sake of clarity and to enable you to better plan your in-game purchases!

 

  • Azuma (IJN cruiser, tier IX, in testing) will be available for Free XP.
  • Yoshino  (IJN cruiser, tier X, modernized Azuma, in development) will be available for Coal.
  • Neustrashimy (Soviet tier IX destroyer, in testing) will be available for Steel.

 

The release dates for these ships will be published on our portal prior to their respective releases.

 

Thanks for reading, good luck, and fair seas!

Steel ships are usually powerful in some way, but as to the Neustrashimy... are you sure about that...

For Steel?

 

Really?

@MrConway, just in case i have missed something elsewhere:

1) Does this mean that the final decision hasn't been made for Alaska yet ?

2) Can you announce the respective prices yet or is that still undecided/tba later ?

No. They already confirmed that the Alaska will cost 1 million Free-XP.

 

So, there were no need to add this ship as well in this list.

I'll probably have enough resources to get all 3 but still end up getting only one, if Azuma and Yoshino playstyle are too similar.

 

Thx for the info MrConway, Appriciated

Was there an error made when deciding the pricing for those three ships? It feels almost as if it should be in reverse order, with Neustrashimy for coal.

 

I suppose if you believe a dd available for a readily available currency at such a high tier could bring imbalance to high tier matchmaking then fair play.

Ah, thanks.

I thought that hadn't been officially confirmed yet, my bad.

I must have missed the announcement.

Wasn't Neutrashimy supposed to be "we finally released a FreeXP DD"?

 

Guess we'll at least see if "rivaling" steel ships replace each other, as in if Black gets removed or no

 

 

Also aren't we getting a few too many Steel ships? One per 3...4 ranked & 3...4 CB seasons would be more than enough, we don't need a new one every single season.

I was expecting Azuma to be a coal ship. But honestly, I'm fine with this. I can get Alaska for FXP and then get Yoshino for coal instead of Azuma.

 

I'll be missing out on the Jean Bart, but... eh, I've never been that excited for her anyway.

it is indeed going to be a difficult choice to choose.

I have seen a lot and I think the adjustments so far are good and certain for the azuma.

I hope everyone can make a good choice

so its time to get steel and XP

 

have fun and sail safely

Predictably, the only one I was interested in is the steel ship! Fortune vomits on my eiderdown once more...

 

Oh well, perhaps we'll get snowflakes again next Christmas?

Does the tidbit about all things in the DevBlog being preliminary and possibly subject to change apply here or is this set in stone?

I believe, with the way it was written, it is definitely final, there is definitely no way it was written like that and could still apply to the DevBlog section rules.

1) Alaska will come when she comes, but for 1 million free XP.

2) They are not nailed down yet, but you can expect them to be similar to existing ships of the same class and tier.

Urgh, as a DD main this is terrible news. Another ship locked behind a resource I have no  good way of getting. Why, oh why, can't there be a coal or FXP high-tier premium DD?

You can expect more ships to be introduced throughout the year, these are just the ones coming in the near future.

If you look at 4:28 it seems Alaska release date has been set but under NDA.

@MrConway could it be the end times Alaska release date has finally been set ?

There is only one way to work out when the Alaska, Azuma and other ships in testing will be released. I just figured it out @MrConway. Y'all at WG are clever but not that clever xD hahahahaha. My suspicions were also confirmed when confronting a tester who was using the Azuma, and refused to answer any of my questions. Even one that was not obvious, because answering it would have given the date away. At least now I know what to look out for :PPPPP

 

btw the Azuma is a very squishy ship at tier 9 defo not worth the 1mill freexp asking price, I think I will save my freexp for the alaska and coal for the yoshy
