So did anyone buy Genova? Stats? How many tokens does it cost in armory?

How many tokens in the armory is dependent on your luck. At best it's in the first slot, then she costs you 70 tokens. At worst it's in the 22nd slot (the last) and then costs you 1540 tokens. It's like the Mogador slot machine with two distinct differences: 1. Genova is a premium ship. 2. Tokens can be earned.

 

Stats? Well she sits on a 4 x 2 layout with SAP and AP with a stock 18 or 19s reload and has no special italian smoke available. Sooo go figure.

If you obtain flag_Italy_206c77d5bf356559100ac3e95fdb7premium_7ca1d32231aa1e03cc8c292ae268c631V Genova from a random bundle and already have this ship in your Port, you'll get a Commander, Port slot, and compensation for the ship in the form of doubloons.

Or did WG botch up the announcement once again?

Is there a difference for WG with regards to "Buying the Genova" vs. "Getting the Genova from a random bundle"? @MrConway, @Crysantos and @Sehales any info on that?

 

And what is that random bundle the article is speaking off?

WG strikes again!

 

@MrConway@Crysantoshow is it that WG is regularly committing criminal offenses according to German law by making false offers for paid content? Any comment?

Well it is a Heavy Cruiser, and the only one so far with 8 guns. So naturally the RoF is low compared to Furutaka and Exeter.

Sounds like total garbage. 19 sec reload on a T5 cruiser???. That's bloody insane...

Hi mate,

The specialty in T5 with 203s is overmatching other cruisers. Genova's dpm there is kind of in line. But it gets no hydro, no HE and the torps are absolute trash. Concealment is good, but its entire raison d'être seems to be to screw over the likes of Königsberg, Omaha and Kirov.

Yesterday it was posted on Reddit how one NA player bought and opened 22 crates (I think around 25.000 Doubloons worth)... :Smile_hiding:

Hill is worse than Nicholas

Siroco is worse than Jaguar

Genova is worse than Montecuccoli

 

Go figure :cap_popcorn:

 

But if (premium) T-61 is better than (techtree) Gaede, community goes nuts.

Guess it doesnt matter what WG is doing :cap_haloween:

Just took a look, it's 20s. And Furutaka has the same. So it's not that much off.

These are the premium containers though, aren't they? And not the bundles you can buy in the 'Slot Machine'.

Imma gonna get it anway...must has them all...even if they are bad. Dunno why, but i feel strangely attracted to bad ships.

 

Also guys, remember that there are at least two new italian premium in the works which will certainly be better then this one. 

Get your wallets ready...cause i am, especially looking forward to the Mainz and Odin, but the italian premiums seem to be much closer to release. 

 

I hazard a guess and say that one of them gets released with the next update, when the ITA CL line gets officially introduced.

Yes... those were "Premium" Italian Containers worth around 25.000 Doubloons... and thus they are the "highest" value... so it is worth to see what they brought... :Smile_hiding:

Furutaka has 15s on upgraded guns. With 6 guns vs 8, overall same dpm, but with better torps, IJN HE, IJN CA accuracy and a hydro.
