issue here is having a T9 ship available to beginners who have no idea about the game mechanics. It's bad enough in T8, and having that problem in T9 as well is, When beginners are able to skip the grind and go to top tiers without a single clue on how top-tier gameplay works, you start to create new problems.... It been 3 years since tons of tier 8s pre and wallet warrior just buy it , wg seem learn nothing!! What's next? Premium T10s?

Maybe WG thought those who would buy premium ships to kick start their wows career are one of those really dedicated players.....

But jokes apart, WG said many things in the past, broke many promises, ruined many dreams... This ain't the first time, won't be the last either.

Already met a few speshuuuul JBs in battles. I am kinda shocked. But hey, people's money..

I thought the whole idea of the Free XP Premiums was to prevent new players from straight up buying a high tier ship they have zero business playing.

Does that mean we are no longer going to get Free XP ships anymore?

I though WG was using free so ships as a XP sink, so less people free so their way up lines.

I know what you mean. There was a time when Tirpitz was on sale and you saw plenty of Tirpitzes do all kind of dumb things in high tier games. I remember when I bought my Atago and my highest tech-tree ship was T6. I didn’t fare too well in T10 games, haha.

On the other hand, you see enough players do dumb things in tech-tree ships, all the way up to T10. And you see other players do really smart tings in premiums, all the way to T8.

I personally would not be willing to spend what they ask, but I’m saving up coal and may get the T9 in the arsenal.

WG allows people to play the game for free, so you have to understand they come up with all kind of schemes to make money.

I actually don't mind they sell high tier ships as long as people can grind those ship with in game currency. From player perspective, the choice it is time vs money, just like premium account. 

In the end, there are only so many ships within the game's era and scope, and they will need to find some way to monetize them and paid their Bill's.

Jean Bart is just over $100AUD.

*considers all things that can be said about paying such an amount for ONE ship in a game that is fully enjoyable for free*

*cannot isolate individual and poignant points*

*returns to enjoying game and not spending over $100 on a single ship*

Heh, yeah I guess.

But you can earn coal in game AND FXP.

I'm not saying don't spend RL money.

I buy premium time all the time and I have some premium ships.

I guess I'm more thinking that I can sink wallet warriors AND tech tree dwellers just the same.

Actually can't remember the last time I saw a really good player in a wallet warrior ship...?

Neh. It's not WG told us the "fake news".

But then again, this is the game where "hopes, dream & money" come first. Go figure.

P/s: Im agree with the others. Just get urself a Musashi.

They always sold T9 Premiums I thought, just go buy Gold and turn it into XP and purchase the MO etc? I thought a lot of peeps did that type of thing, perhaps I don't understand how it works though /shrug.

The difference is to convert ship xp to free xp, you still need ship xp to begin with. In other words, you still need to have spent time playing the game.

But by selling Jean Bart directly in the shop, new players don't need to play a single game before jumping straight into Tier 9-10 battles and being a deadweight for their team.

Found a lot of them today, tried to bow tank Yamato....

Wait a minute , i thought most BB would have no problem surviving as long as you dont park nose straight.

In most cases , if they thought french BB are meant to tank , i really think high tier games are now a lost cause in the middle of dooms land.

Most of the times French BBs are left alone cause many people think they are hard to hit. But if they let you hit, they do not last very long. Especially under immense firepower that Montana, Yamato, Conqueror etc pumps out.
