I’m sure most of you folks are really curious and exciting at the same time with Missouri going to be released in game, however, you will certainly have noticed-why a tier 9 premium? Well, you are gonna find out soon!

Long story short, when the Chinese server(run by Kong Zhong Wang (or KDW for short))was in its pre-launch stage-which is sometime after WoWs was officially published by WG-they put forward a crowd funding project-for raising money to develop the Missouri in-game. They needed a grand total of one million Chinese Yuan.

Figure 1.1 more than 10k people actually funded for the 'project'

 

Yep you read that right boys and girls. The greedy ass Chinese publisher asked their players to pay one million just to ‘develop’ a ship that was already in the goddamn game-it’s essentially an Iowa! (well, change the camouflage, mess the AA defence around a bit and u got Missouri)

 

And they specifically said that (quoting official sources )

 达到预定众筹金额后,空中网将与俄方合作进行开发,在《战舰世界》游戏后续版本中加入密苏里号战列舰

 

 (Once we reached the goal, KDW  will work with the Russians to develop Missouri, which will be released in the later version of the game)

 

 Not sure about you, but I found that very funny, as they made it sound so ‘realistic’ in the way that this is such a ‘time and money consuming’ project. Well, they made a promise, so they actually need to have Missouri in-game, and here we go-the first T9 premium in game.

You do realize that it is one thing: it is the CN server. Second thing, we have the Missouri camo in the game already =_=

*insert did not read gif*

 

The missouri they are going to release is gonna be an actual in-game Ship named missouri with obviously different camo than the iowa

I never knew Chinese Yuan had the same currency symbol as Japanese Yen.

 

Well, learn something new everyday!

 

This is because, as i believe, in chinese it is called 'yuan  圓' and in japanese it is called 'yen '

Since the two are similar, they share the same symbol

It's China what do we expected? Abiding the rule and care about customer? 
If you play other game involve with China publisher you should know that they are full of scandal and other stuff. 
Shanghai Major, a Dota2 tournament for example was host by Perfect World, a million dollar grand prize competition should have at least decent level of organization right? Nope. The stage was prepared late for the competition, the playing booth have weird smell and gas that make player uncomfortable and in some case make them shred tears. The stream was horrible, delay happened every game, and the arena close and force fan to leave before the last match finish. After a few day thing seem to have calm down and then shit happen again. The hotel where the players stay at throw out the players gears without telling the players, turned out the people of PW told the hotel staff when they ask them what to do with the stuff was: 'They are rich anyway, take what you want, just throw the rest into the lobby'. And after all that shit show, PW never said sorry until Alibaba decide to throw a big tournament in order to fight for the distributor slot in China. Also, the one who rent the hotel for the players reject the discount for large number of booking in order to get a VIP card as a gift for his boss.

So long story short, in China unless they have competitor, they will shit on the customer so hard and take everything they can.
