Anyone know why they made the ARP ships premiums?

Is this WG being generous, or are they planning to sell the ARP ships again?

 

Or can we grind them again? I would like an ARP Takao as i really like the color, but other than that, i'm not too interested.

Unlikely.

It looks very much like we get a new collaboration with High School Fleet this year and up to now they were always exclusive.

 

Maybe they just listened to the players.

But HSF and ARP are two different franchises?

Maybe something changed with their collab agreement.

Previously they told us, they dont have access to ARP ships (how that makes sense is beyond me, but lets say this is true). Not only do they make them premium, they also made the skins camos.

 

So maybe something changed, and now they could change the values for the Camos/premium ship bonus.

So theyre going to be grindable again?

I noticed no one seemed to be talking about them.  

 

I have the 4 kongo sisters and one of the T7s, but nothing else.

It was commented on in the Dev Blogs.

 

The real game changer is Takao.

Tier V and VII are not that special for most veteran players.

I haz thery...

 

Sudden appearance of "red" Takao, turning ARP/Dragon ships into premiums smells of second Arpeggio collab to me - WG wouldn't create new "unlicensed" content unless they made "red" Takao skin years ago and kept it sekrit for some reason. Existing ships probably will return as purchasable premiums, from "new" ships that could be added...

 

From anime, with known voice actresses for voiceover:

Yamato, Musashi, I-400/401/402 (assuming subs will receive green light), Maya as Takao clone

From manga (voice 404 not found):

Nagato, Mutsu, Atago, Choukai, Zuikaku, Lexington, Bismarck, Yukikaze (weeb copy of a weeb ship?:cap_hmm:)

Well the change is nice and welcome. Have all 9 ships plus some extra captains that came without their ship. In the years after ARP event WG did change some bugs ( wrong Kirishima voice f.e.) and lately gave them Permanent camo that removed the tactical disadvantage of the ships. ( the ships were naked without any possibility of camo). Now atleast you have the free camo that gives no xp advantage but atleast the -3% and -4% concealment and dispersion. Better camo can be equipped at your own discretion.

 

With these recent changes I was already very satisfied. That we get another buff regarding real premium stats and maybe even better permanent camo is a nice bonus. 
 

The extra red Takao camo ( her initial anime color before getting friendly and blue) is somehow a surprise..

 

But still after 4 years we have 9 real premium ships ( and 2 more dragons). Myoko and Kongo are not bad silver ships and Atago is still fine after all these years.. WG currently makes us work harder for our free premiums..

I-401 always was in game files, though ship model was a placeholder. Floating Umikaze without guns and torps IIRC.

With the mod that shows every ship ingame in the tech tree they are still there:

tbh. WG would be dumb if they don't try to get another calaboration with ARP when they release the subs just to sell I401 etc.

Arpeggio brand IMO makes the most sense to "collab" with, as its the most "serious" setting. Other are shoolgirls at sea and other are... umm... not quite safe for work material.

 

Even more so when it comes to subs:Smile_hiding:

Buisnesses don't work like that, especially companies like Disney or any other big company who have ferocious lawyers that will sue you for everything you own including your soul for using their brand without their permission.

WG needs a special written contract to be able to give out any ARP/HSF/AL content. The change of camos in game is fine becouse WG isn't giving anything out to new players.

It's a little early for Absinthe, surely? :Smile-_tongue:

 

Being sensible, I would love to get my paws on the ARP ships - mainly because I have a nasty case of collectoritis, rather than anything else (I hadn't been persuaded to play yet when they were released originally)....

A new collaboration with ARP is unlikely to come very soon, as it looks very much like we get a new collaboration with HSF. And I doubt it is possible to have two different collaborations at the same time.

Therefore there was no urgent external reason for the changes of the ships.

40k is a bit weak in the naval area.

Spacefleet Gothic does not really fit.

 

An adaptation of visual elements should be possible.

Probably some sort of special camo only, but still, I'd take it. ;)
