I was thinking of buying the stock Amagi Ashitaka, and I have lots of doubloons, do you know if you can buy the ship alone and then get the camo in the client?

no just looked.

It's a shame. That ship it's only good with the camo, but I'm not paying nearly 50 euro for that.

Just bought the ship myself. Do not find the other camo that attractive but each to his own

No you can not. And before you ask, no you can't on the Kii (or, presumably the Roma) either.

So do I, that's how I was able to check. Can't see how it  would be any different for the other two.

Well, I already had those two with the Kobayashi camo. It's a shame. I don't like playing tier 8s cause the constant uptiering to tier 10. That is the best thing for the Ashitaka.

Thank you.

No problem. And I have the Roma with the Kobayashi camo myself, while my Kii just has her regular one (got her out of a x-mas crate)

It's a pity the Kii cammo isn't available separately - I'm another that has her (sans cammo) from a Christmas crate...

 

BTW I see that LWM doesn't think much of the Ashitaka ('mehbote') - does anyone significantly disagree with that assessment?

Haven't played the Ashitaka, but I do disagree with her opinion on the DoY for what that is worth.

The thing is, the Ashitaka is one of the very few premium ships I'm missing. I have had the Atago for nearly 3 years now.

I would love to see the Makoto Kobayashi camo as a separate offer in the shop for my Kii. And for the Roma and Ashitaka.

Locking it in a bundle makes me want to puke, WG is losing business just to spite it's own customers.

Didn't buy the Ashitaka when it was released because it's very very meh.

Now because there has been a lack of new premiums I have some money to spare so I picked her up.

 

It's basically how I imagined.

Still decent against cruisers due to accuracy and volume of fire, but trying to damage other battleships is beyond frustrating with pre-tier 5 penetration AP shells.

With the Nagato existing it's tough to justify getting a pair of extra guns at the cost of all your penetrating power and all your AA power while also having a much longer and less maneuverable ship. Scharnhorst is better, Nelson is better, Duke of York is better, even Hood is better. You'll be hard pressed to find a worse tier 7 BB.

Reloading six seconds faster certainly helps in that regard. Hell the DoY is a better HE spammer as well, no doubt.

 

Mind you I wouldn't know as I shoot AP in her :P

no, it is only fair towards those who were "forced" to buy the most expensive bundle when the Kii was released intitally, to get this camo. So they had to buy the ship with together with much other stuff you usually don't spent real money for (modules, signals, consumables), even if they didn't want/need this stuff, because it was the only way to get the special camo...

There is no such thing as "fair" in business, companies always look for a better deal or an advantage. Just because people who bought the bloated bundle have been had doesn't mean anything.

Obvious question is why would you buy that appallingly bad ship?

Collecting. I have nearly every other premium ship. 

But I can't but it for doubloons, which I have plenty and I have paid for them, or even the camo.
