In all the fuss about the scammy practice with the shortlist premiums, nobody seems to mention this line:

 

"It's important to point out that next year, ships IV Imperator Nikolai I, V Gremyashchy, V Fūjin, V Giulio Cesare, and V Kamikaze will not be included in Santa's containers. Don't miss your chance to get rare Premium ships!"

 

Better start whaling now fellas, next year you'll be sh*t out of luck!

Sooo, either:

  • WG will remove them temporarely from the xmas crates and introduce them in two years again to ensure that people buy crates
  • WG found a way to monetize ultra rare premiums (stuff of nightmares)
  • WG will wait half a year and introduce them back as normal premiums which would p*ss people off who may or may not have spend hundreds of euros on this years lootboxes just to get them.

 

Luckily, i have all of 'em on my main account, so it doesn't bother me...much (it'd be nice to have them on my main-alt account tho...).

 

So, do you have them? Do you want them? What's your opinion?

I fixed it for you  :

 

"It's important to point out that next year, other ships  < snip >  will  be included in Santa's containers.

Don't worry, dont hurry ,  plenty of other Premium ships to spend money on!"

 

:cap_cool:

 

Nothing special, just another "sales pitch".

That's because next year, they'll be called Santa's Presents.


You just gotta read the fine print so you don't get scammed.

IV Imperator Nikolai

 

With its whopping 9 AA defence well that's 9 better than the Arkansas B  totally worth it.

 

And Kami every CVs wet dream.

I don't and couldn't care less. Never seen much of a point in collecting pixels... :Smile_veryhappy:

 

BTW if one owns Fujin and spends money on the lottery to get Kamikaze - well, it qualifies for a therapy... :Smile_trollface:

IV Imperator Nikolai I - Not that strong anymore. CVs just take a dump on it. Slow, huge citadel. Don't even play it... Not worth whaling.

V Gremyashchy - Got nerfed to the ground with the invisifire change. Nothing special now. Not worth whaling.

V Fūjin - Nice little ship but not that stron since the CV change. Not worth whaling

V Giulio Cesare - Good little ship. Maybe worth it until the other pasta arrives.

V Kamikaze  - Same as Fujin.

 

BTW believe them as much as:

 - There won't be subs.

 - There won't be Prem ships over T8.

 - We understood you don't want NTC.

 - CV Reeeework is a success and fine.

 - Stalingrad is balanced.

Forgot about removal of popular ships like Jean Bart and gun caliber bigger then 460mm... :Smile_veryhappy:

Recent stats tell a different story.

Gremlin is still a good boat to club people with.

I am not saying it is a bad ship. I am just saying it is not worth the whailing. Unlike for example a Smolensk.

Also forgot "we'll learn from GNB suprer secret surprise reward communication fail". Or basically every communication fail after which they said that :cap_fainting:

- Grand Naval Battles

- Clash of Elements

- Santa Shaft

- Aimbot using supertester still being in supertest

- Pay to Rico

- probably much more where I have to spend more than a minute to think

Indeed. When you play the Nikolai and press “O” the guy on deck with a pistol is given a clip of bullets.

 

Rubber ones.

 

Ofc all that is forgiven when you get to turn it’s guns on two Hoshos that failed to move after their flank had collapsed, and you just blap them both off the map. It’s the simple pleasures...

 

Luckily I’ve got all the rares so I really don’t care if they’re never available again - but with WG “never” doesn’t necessarily mean never.

 

Still plenty of ships to entice people to buy lootboxes tho - Missouri, Kronshtadt,  Benham, Alaska, and I wouldn’t be surprised if they started putting t10’s such as PR, Smolensk, Smaland etc in those as well.

I have all but Gremy and Belfast.

I used to want them, or at least some of them, very badly for a long time and literally bought several hundred Satan crates to get them.

Then WG turned them into fertilizer with the CV rework.

What can I say?

Look at muh signature.

Do it every day.

Do not give WG any money. They'll just blow it on more scams.

What about owning Fujin, spending more money on the lottery to get Belfast but getting Kamikaze and Nikolai instead?

Spoiler

A more fitting subject line would be "Time to start errr, re-monetizing your account!"

I think this one is the most possible scenarios. WG wants to have some back-up.

Oh I think thats a given, prob next year when there are 3-4 T10 to dangle in front...

 

On other notion I got a Flint from a SC drop just this morning so I guess I only lack Neustrashmiwhatever from the steel->coal pile, however I guess I need a T10 DD more then another T9 so Marceau will likely be my next pick, just dont know should I wait for the coupon in 2 weeks or save that for the Plymuth...

What about playing Fujin or any other ship for that matter, that you already own and like, and save money on something guranteed instead of on the evanescent mirage?

 

This is a video game, not a stockbook for rare collectors edition 1800s stamps...
