Captains,

 

Since we're already on a roll, lets announce the next newcomer! :Smile_medal:

 

Salem

Sister ship of Des Moines, USS Salem was the world's last heavy cruiser to enter service and is the only one still in existence. If you are a movie buff you might have already seen her play Admiral Graf Spee in The Battle of the River Plate, if you haven't I suggest you download it now go buy that movie and watch it!

So, a TX ship huh? Will this be some kind of Clan Battles reward ship or are you actively pursuing the idea of a TX premium?

I hope TX premium. Screw reward ships that only a fraction of players will be able to obtain!

How will she be diffferent from the DM? We see a lot of Premiums released but in case of a 2nd (or even 3rd) ship in the same class I wonder what the actual “enrichment”(not counting $ for WG) for the game such premium gives?

 Stalingrad says hello...

But if WG is releasing tier 10’s premiums why not make a sale instead of giving it free to the 1% elite.

 

IMO premiums should have been kept tier VIII max... Now we (will) have MO, Mushasi, Black, Stalinggrad and Salem....

 Sweet, so a newbie that only got into the game will be able to obtain a TX now just by donating...Awesome!..I do not pretend on owning it, but it rather be a reward for nerds with no life like Flint and Black. But it is unlikely, since winter is coming and WG employees need cash to buy new coats and warm sweaters.

 Try to stall for time and keep players in by reliecing a line every 6 months even the copy/paste pan asian, but in meantime reliece 20+ premiums that are enough to make two full tech trees, how desperate can you become?

Wouldn't make a difference at all.

We have enough players who have no effin clue about the game in high tiers, at least we get premium version of the DM.

Well, right now, a newbie can donate and get a TIX, or go to the shop and get a TVIII - which will get into TX games. Or simply use daddy's credit card to convert free XP to get to TX, like they are doing now. There's no difference and it makes the "no-TX-prems" policy pointless.

You can get tier 8, yes, but to get tier 9 you must have maybe 1k (give or take) battles to have enough XP for convertion, thats not a newbie, tho its arguable, if they make this thing accesable to a person who just installed the game and willing to spend money of the bat, this is what i meant, it would be a cheap move for an even better gameplay at top tiers.

with all multiplayers ur getting 15-25k per avrg victory in tirpitz little less is the freexp lol

in 500battles in Missouri with no XP multis(in fact 140battles are with gamescom camo with +50%XP not with +100% as standard) except the camo and daily i was with 2m XP

turpitz in 380battles 1.4M XP not to mention the freexp that i get from that ship lol 15battles are with only secondarys and heal flags + all multis(freex and cap)

Uh, a tier X ship:Smile_sceptic:. This is certainly a surprise.

 

Will you offer tier X premiums now, or perhaps free XP tier X at the cost of say 1mill. free XP or more? More probable this will be a reward ship, thus a ship for the very few. I fear this will be the US Stalingrad equivalent of the Moskva, thus unobtainium:Smile_sad:.

So @MrConway, what is the ship intended for? Reward, premium, free XP ship? Or is it still a secret?

Just a note, if you get this score, then you are quite above average players and noone should worry about you getting a Tier IX ;) 

 

As for how will you be able to get the Salem, just wait. So far we are jsut floating stuff that is in the works and coming to Supertest soon - but note that the actual imploementation is not determined by that. After all we had Worcester and Buffalo in ST ages ago (really ages... At least two years if memory serves me right ;)) and the models were there, waiting for the opportunity (similar to, say, Tone).

T10, ohh where to start. I find more sensible players playing T5-T8 than at T10, that's just my thought. I suppose I am about smack in the middle of average, not bothered too much to invest time in becoming great in 1 boat (not played carriers at all, nearly). But you really do not require any games at all to get Missouri, you just need to buy a whole whopping lot of the pumpkins, 20k free exp, you will need 38 of those.. I got 5 when I bought 55 pumpkins, so buy 365+ and you should more or less at the required level.. 

 

Once you've done that you see, you can even shell out more money and buy whatever T10 you want, it'll cost you a hefty sum of money, but hey!.. I really don't mind numpties at T10, it makes for diversive game play, the problem is when players starts taking !"#%$£ for granted, spot this, smoke that, scout here, cap this... Without having discussed tactics, and this happens ALOT more at T10 than at any other tier..

 

So, if you want to be able to buy these, get free exp, or sell them to guys that have enough T10's already.. A premium T10 is not really that useful for anything except diversity or clan battles :-).

Well there were dataminigs and leaks back then... But Worcester then disappeared from the client (heck, might have been even in Alpha?) and Buffalo just patiently waited there... So there was nothing really to leak :cap_haloween:

Tuccy please consider having such ships available through alternative paths besides putting it behind a Clan-lock.

I am still immensely pi**ed of about losing out on the IS-5 in wot by very few places (details do not matter but i do want to be able to get one through my own effort)

Now, another day, another ship.

 

Tell us about the USS Kidd (DD-661, Fletcher class). This article states the Kid will arrive on NA 10. november. Perhaps on EU too?

I'd say there's a hint in the top of the forum.
