seriously ???? 

this is some new kind of [edited] ? and are this permanent or is it just over the holidays ? 

goodbye hightier gameplay you are now truly fucked! 

 

https://worldofwarships.eu/en/news/game-updates/update-0912-new-year/

first they say this 

Starting from Update 0.10.1, the following ships will no longer be available to obtain: flag_USA_dd9fc06d19a8638f4077ab2fe200d22premium_1d0cabf1997104fd727039ab9c098192IX Georgia, flag_USA_dd9fc06d19a8638f4077ab2fe200d22premium_1114542bcd311c388080eea3a4d54a7eIX Alaska, flag_USA_dd9fc06d19a8638f4077ab2fe200d22premium_1d0cabf1997104fd727039ab9c098192VIII Massachusetts, flag_United_Kingdom_c1f75d7cca85dc4b4820special_fdb3e9eabba1009b1c4adb7b370a68a2X Thunderer, and flag_Europe_6c2bac10ec2bec5799e117af8aa6special_5d797363651721d76cdb3439cd23845bX Småland. Georgia, Alaska, and Massachusetts will also no longer be available to purchase in the Premium Shop.

The ships have been taken out of the game due to a combination of their popularity and combat efficiency. In order to maintain the proper level of diversity in teams in terms of the ships they are made up of, these ships will no longer be available to obtain for an indefinite period of time, but may return in future.

 

then this ...................

 

 

As a New Year's gift, we've added four single-use coupons that grant 10%, 15%, 20%, and 25% discounts when obtaining ships in exchange for doubloons. The coupons will become available on December 25 and remain active until January 8.

The following ships will be available in the Armory in exchange for doubloons:

  • flag_Pan_Asia_3b66d1136c736e56c9f2f7cda2premium_9ffc494df739f989c98f2dd3a4e40887VIII Siliwangi — for 10,300 doubloons.
  • flag_Germany_18970d883c7758b53538983bd09premium_9ffc494df739f989c98f2dd3a4e40887IX Z-44, flag_USA_dd9fc06d19a8638f4077ab2fe200d22premium_1d0cabf1997104fd727039ab9c098192IX Georgia, flag_Germany_18970d883c7758b53538983bd09premium_1d0cabf1997104fd727039ab9c098192IX Pommern, flag_USA_dd9fc06d19a8638f4077ab2fe200d22premium_1114542bcd311c388080eea3a4d54a7eIX Alaska, flag_Germany_18970d883c7758b53538983bd09premium_1114542bcd311c388080eea3a4d54a7eIX Ägir, flag_Japan_740b57e1da9b5d3fe46b61e09e3dcpremium_1114542bcd311c388080eea3a4d54a7eIX Azuma, and flag_Europe_6c2bac10ec2bec5799e117af8aa6premium_9ffc494df739f989c98f2dd3a4e40887IX Friesland — for 19,300 doubloons.

The usual lies and excuses. "We made OP ships, and when the playerbase had their share of being bullied by them, we remove them and make them available by money or rigged gambling."

What are you on about.....  Maybe best to read the patch notes properly.. The ships are being added to be available with Dubloons in patch 0.9.12

 

and on patch 0.10.1

The ships will not be available by ANY means..  with Georgia, Massachusetts and Alaska being removed from the Prem shop as well as from the in game currency that they are available for at the moment.

 

Georgia/Alaska and Massachusetts are available in the Prem Shop for cash at the moment but not available in in the armoury for in game dubloons

my argument still stand they say they are over populating or op. and therfore have to go and still they add more ways to get more out..........

I wonder how they think they could counter "overpopulation" without an actual reduction of the population. It's not that those ships will decay after a year in port, as none of them is Russian.

Well it kinda makes sense i guess.

You can buy those ships with a discount now. If you buy them directly for money, you wont. Now you can buy doubloons and use a coupon to get it cheaper. 15k dubs is 50€, T9 premiums are sold for 63€ or something like that.

So i think they just hope to get more people to buy them, before the removal.

The option to get them for doubloons is being added in 0.9.12. They become completely unavailable to obtain in 0.10.1. In the interim you will be able to obtain them for doubloons as well as currencies they have been available for until now. This shouldn't be complicated, it's all explained if you read it carefully.

Translation: 'popular' means WeeGee is losing sales as people are using too much in game currency instead of cash or doubloons on less 'popular' ships that are not available for any in game currency. :Smile_trollface:

I would rather translate it into "the ratio of griefers vs. victims is beginning to break even, so we need to prevent griefers from becoming the majority and being forced to eat their own poison"...
