1 mil free xp price tag is real, captains.

 

"Soon". When exactly is "soon"? SoonTM?

Missouri was available for over a year, from between patch 0.5.15 to before 0.7.2.1 (Dec 2016 to Jan 2018). Musashi's sale is also about a year (0.7.0 to before 0.8.0 - Jan 2018 to Jan 2019). My estimation for Alaska would be a small patch in mid-January, any time before 0.8.0.

Or better yet, tomorrow (don't count on it, as this is from Dev Blog).

@Gummilicious Confirms it is 1 Million Free XP for the cost of anything, no coals or steel.

 

 

CV Rework 0.8.0 is her primary release so....

Why so?

Have 966k lined up, so better not be tempted to plunder to pull my NC up to Iowa.

Don't need to play Tier X's if you play Co-op only.

Will look good in port though...

How long until this ship gets pulled?

Place your bets now!

 

Probably a year before WG starts complaining about Alaskas spamming high tier matches.

Yep.

The whole thing which doesn’t make sense is that no one ever complained about Yamato spamming high tier matches. Or spamming the ranked T10 ranked season anyway.

At least that is more valid than pulling Kronstadt because APPARENTLY the ship is "too popular" :Smile_facepalm:

Removing Freemium ships is a mistake. They're popular cause they're unique ships that won't deduct exorbitant service charges from your credit earnings and they're easier to maintain than a tech tree ship. If WG doesn't want spammers, they should probably improve the other tech tree ships that underperform.

That's a ridiculous excuse, I barely see any Kronstahdts around, maybe once or twice in a week but it's not nearly as popular as Musashi.  Kron is too big to be a cruiser and has mediocre armor to be a battleship, it's not exactly a head turner imo.

Or just not realease them as op Teir 9.5s.

T9 in the tech tree is probably the most complained-about tier I've ever known since I started playing this game. Not all of them get complaints, but when they do, boy oh boy. Two prime examples are Izumo and FdG. I know some people also complain about Seattle and Neptune. In some lines I'd rather stay at T9 than getting the T10.

"Too popular" is WG code for "too overpowered".  Kronshtadt is one of the most OP ships in the game.  It's like when they say something has been "made more comfortable" - that means they buffed it.

They keep releasing free xp ships that are too good because they want them to be attractive to players, and then having to remove them because they are OP.  Missouri, Musashi and Kronshtadt are all in this basket, and Alaska is quite clearly about to be released in an overpowered state.  It will inevitably be removed from sale as well.
