Dockyard - De Zeven Provincien - Will you take part?

I've done most of the dockyard events and was looking forward to this one, partly because I'm a cruiser main, partly because I'm Dutch, other reasons as well. But I've been checking out this ship and frankly, it looks like it's gonna be a turd. They made it SO weak just to compensate for its air strike capability, that in a straight out gunfight with most T7 cruisers it will get spanked. And many of those cruisers have torpedoes as well. What am I missing about this new upcoming Dutch cruiser that it deserves to be T8? It can't be just the heal and the once-a-minute airstrike?

I think we take part whether we like it or not by just playing the game (up to a point that is)?

Absolutely yes, starter pack should cost 3500-4000 doublons, which is crazy cheap for T8 cruiser with unique mechanics. Plus other stuff from dockyard, hopefully steel

Hows the weather in Prague? Or at least, what do your friends in Prague say the weather is like?

If the ship turns out to be good, I should have enough doubs to get it for free.

Just because the rest of the stuff is overpriced doesnt make this cheap :Smile_trollface: 

 

Now if its a fun and solid boat I might be tempted to spend some of my free doubloons..

Crazy cheap, for a starter pack? Load of BS. If you don't finish the DY in time you wont even get the ship for your dubs. Rosebud.

Unique mechanics being crap guns, crap pen, crap damage etc all for the unique crap airdrop? :Smile_veryhappy:

Wah ^^

Well, I easily do all missions by playing normally, so that's essentially the price for a premium ship. Uniqueness is of having airstrike, no other premium do so. And I have no worries for it being crap or OP, we always get balanced and enjoyable premiums in dockyards

this^^

the 3 stage doublon pack should only be purchasable once a player attains the 21st stage, to guarantee they get their money's worth (an actual ship!)

the current arrangement is abusive, of inciting players to purchase 3 early stages, and so to arm twist them into slaving away at the pitface for 21 more stages (marketing dept deploying a toxic"sunk cost" nonsense).

wise up folks, don't let WeeGee take advantage.*

Spoiler

*I am unfortunately weak minded, please give me a hard slap if you ever notice de zeven in my port before the event ends.

You have none of the dockyard ships so far. Everything you wrote here is a construct of your imagination.

Not gonna buy anything with dubs to get her. She is very underwhelming in terms of stats, just like the recent Dockyard ships. She might be cheap but she will also collect dust when there are much better options out there.

If the Starter pack for 3 stages will cost around 3k doubloons,  I take it. It's historical, has godlike AA, enough for me to get it.

I will get her for the minimal cost as I already have the gold in the game and its the last gold bought for RL money WG will ever see me spend, after the BS they are puling of late its really high time to pull the plug

Depends on how much it's going to cost to be honest.

With the plethora of permutations of his account name, you might just looked up the wrong reroll.
