Why did they remove Harekaze??

Soo, I was uncertain whether to buy the Harekaze or not when it was initially released.

Decided to wait for a while and think about it, since they announced the collaboration would last until late 2018.

 

Now, I figured just recently that I want to go for it and purchase, cause it's quite a unique ship and looks fun to play.

Well, to my lucky surprise, it's apparently been removed from the premium shop...

 

Anyone know what's the deal with this? I thought they said it would last until 2018 ffs:Smile_sad:

Amusingly, it's still up on the NA store..

Both HSF ships are available on the NA server.

So it's not like WG can't sell them anymore, they just don't want us to give them money.

Ok, a couple things. Well, literally couple, as in: two.

1. The premium shop offers had a precise number of days until the offer disappears. The offers were not pulled from the shop early - they just expired at the time they were announced to expire.

2. Asian server had some news confirming a new batch of HSF collaboration. It can be almost assumed that the old HSF ships will make it back to the shop along with any new content we'll see due to this prolonged collab.

Could be he accidentaly read/got linked by people to the NA announcement which said they would be available till september 2018?

 

And if WG is going to do a round 2 then removing them because of a licensing issue seems really unlikely. I really don't get why NA still has those ships in store but the rest (even the Asia server which covers Japan) doesn't. Seems like the other offices decided to just randomly screw over people in other regions by creating a artificial scarcity to drive up demand.

I bet they will release it later for a short period of time.
You know to create some kind of urgency. "Buy it now before we remove it."

I like mine, but the only Hull worth it is the B one which is 75% Aki with better rudder and no HP. 

 

Fortunately WG included an IJN Camo and the ability to put normal IJN captains in so those of us who are not sexual deviants (sorry lel :Smile-_tongue:) don't have to suffer anime girls squealing.

And that is not random. That is marketing 101. Limiting supply increases demand.

Knowing that it might be sold again in a bundle or so for X Mas but because I did not want to miss out on it just in case it does not I bought it the fore-last day of the selling it was there for 3 months or so untill the end of september maybe it will and maybe it won't return you never know the Arpeggio is not going to be likely to return either I would not mind any of those ships to return though it does not need to be rare for me.

Yes it is still in NA and they said it would be there for a full year from launch date. I mostly play on NA But I like the way EU plays better so far.

@Magnux7

 

Not going to go in to hole thing of what is in NA shop or EU shop. Apart from to point out EU shop has 34 ships available at this moment any ship that can be bought in a bundle is also available on its own. NA has 20 ships and the Hazekaze is ONLY available in a bundle. something WG promised they would not do with us again.

 

Whenever there is a ship on offer in the shop it tells you how long  (end date of the offer) in the notice in the Portal(News). You must look at this.

The dev blog just posted info about the second Haifuri collab going into the supertest.

Expect the Harekaze to come back sooner than you thought. I'm getting one with the Isoroku camo:

I would only spend money on that camo, if it gave +100% XP.

No cent for something that ugly, even if it would give a 1000% exp bonus
