Seems that they have removed the tweet, so the starting date might change.

 

But the ship is definitely set to be a "Freemium".

It's a shame the latest variant of the thing is heavily nerfed to fit the tier rather than slotted into T6 with some adjustment. 

 

BUT

 

It's an iconic RN ship and the model looks great - so I'm going to be suckered into grinding it nonetheless....

The T6 and T7 freemiums are usually scheduled for christmas, T5 is as high as it typically goes for the rest of the year, unless it's a special, longer event (e.g. Cossack)

It's only nerfed if you compare it to the initial made up configuration they tested publicly.

Looking at it with no preconceptions it's basically a Furutaka-like, so tier 5 fits well.

And that was a reskin of an already existing ship, plus it's horrible.

Nope. Varyag was one of the 3 one off designs that were ordered by the Imperial Russian Navy in foreign shipyards, together with Askold and Bogatyr. Out of the 3, Bogatyr was chosen as the design to be replicated.

You are absolutely correct. Was thinking of Oleg. :cap_book:

Even now looking at Varyag in port it feels like I've never seen it before. Might not have even played it.

It comes with a gorgeous alternative camo for the Pacific squadron

Nerfbatted to hell? Check...

Not likely anyone in their right mind will shell out money for it in said condition? Check...

Lets make it freemium in a campaign so we can have one more ship we gave away but is mainly usless? Check...

 

Not a single one of those campaign freemiums in last 2.5 years is worth the bother, ok maybe octobarskaya

It's a T5 ship that competes with Furutaka, the best silver T5 cruiser in existence. Sure nerfbatted to hell.

Well a T5 at least counts for getting mission rewards. I sold all my lower tier ships  because they were not usefull for this.

One of the best concealment values? Guns that overmatch other T5 and lower cruisers?

Free stuff is always good, provided the grind isn't excessive.

 

Plus, it's the Exeter - even if it sucked, I would need to have it...!
