probably more than that actually, I don't know how often Proships updates. Also I don't know if the stats include special WG accounts (press for example)

Table shows

country/tier/shipname/playertotal/battles/WR/exp/dmgavg

interesting to compare with other tier 10s

I suspect, as at previous times in WOWS history when the community has expressed varying degrees of outrage at some new pay2win cash grab, sales of this latest example will do well enough. At 4 x the cost of a tier 8 premium, ARP Yamato with UU only needs to sell a 1/4 of the number of 40 € ARP Mayas to break even (assuming licensing fees from ARP are the same for both). Just a thousand sales of ARP Y will surely pay for the cost of  the shiny ARP camouflage renders and much more.

Overall, ARP ships are not as popular as the noise on the forums (for/against) would suggest

I noticed one other very curious thing, the WOWS wiki which is normally updated automatically with basic data on newly released ships, has zero entries for ARP Yamato, nada, not a thing, most strange :

the amount of arp Yamato could be higher.

580 players but the real amount could be higher because one can buy a ship and don't play it right away.

either way i expect the numbers will rise

These are the past two months on the EU server from this morning or yesterday evening:

One should note that there were not many opportunities to get these ships and Kongos and Myokos are not at the top of many wishlists.

It wouldn't surprise me if the numbers go a lot higher: for the 'more money than time' crowd, for less than a hundred UK pounds, you can save several weeks (for most) of grinding and instantly get one of the all-time naval icons.

 

For me, it's not remotely worth the money, but for plenty of others it will be, I suspect...

If I had had the money to spare, I probably would have gotten the ARP Yamato. I simply love the looks of most of these ships. Not sure how much I would play it in T10 Randoms right away.

we don't know, as WG has failed to update the WOWS Wiki.

But if you mean by Super Yamato the ARP Yamato with the special upgrade, at a guess it will be similar to the in game Yamato & unique Upgrade that is available from the Research Bureau (improved dispersion/slower turret rotation)

Isn't S***in's imagery legally banned in some EU countries just as H***er's? He's even greater criminal against the humanity and a mass murderer than the other one.

Many in Western Europe know nothing of Stalin.

Eastern European countries know Stalin very well indeed.

 

In western education we are told much about Hitler but almost nothing about Stalin and Mao. 

 

Must do better......

Well then WG should make a ship named Hitlerstadt and see what happens.

When I was at school we were taught that Stalin was  a Murdering Bstd just like Adolf, but the Cold War was in full swing back then. TBH when I was at school I think the Romans had just left :cap_old:

Do those stats sites only show users who've played PvP battles? I know for sure that there will be Co-Op only players like myself who've bought it and therefore won't be included in any PvP stats which would push the real number of buyers up futher.

The data I showed includes only random, solo battles of open accounts.

Hmmm, not sure what education system they made you sit through but in mine we spent an entire year on Stalin from beginning to end.
