Was just in a random battle with my Massechuetttesest.

Had to solo push a cap and kill TWO Amagis in hand to hand before the rest of my team would come out of hiding and help me.

GET BACK MAX_BATTLE!!! They reckon.

NEED SUPPORT!!!! I reckon.

Anyway, I chased down a Kutezovoaov who finally burned me down and so I looked around the battlespace for a while as my team (painfully and eventually) won.

Took this quick vidcap of a Mainz.

I like it - well the five seconds that I watched.

Torps splooshing, secondaries pewing and all at close range.

Really hope I like this ship. I will almost certainly buy this ship whatever it costs.

Errr, did I say that outloud?

I will only buy this bote if under $30AUD 😛

Meh.

I liked that he was running Ironblood flag and Gunther's special flag.

Mmm, themed botes...

I like how they didn't even say a thing, just released the ship. Not a single letter. Only the people who view the Premium Shop know she's released :cap_hmm:

Where is a good review?

Just found this one only a few hours old.

Still has good armour for a "light" cruiser?

Oh, they have done this before. Admiral Makarov. Barely anyone knew the ship was being tested, no news/update during testing, no announcement when she was released.

It was the days before Dev Blog, so even fewer players know the ship even exists.

Who likes maths for Whales?

Is the Mainz Admirals Pack worth it... if you are a loony, or really like German ships...

I mean do the components stack up to value if you break it down?

Good question. It caught us by surprise.

The only review I have watched in detail is the one I linked above.

6 kills...

I will buy regardless.

Just wonder if going the Full Whale is worth it.

I guess Mainz is going to be my target of 2020 Xmas containers.

They only released 5 new ships so far since the last Xmas event and I hope this number won't exceed 14 by the end of this year.

A CL that can pen 38 mm with fastest reload for tier and type and 17+km range?

Come on.

Still GERMAN though.

its LOOK Decent on stat :

1. 17.56 KM range

2. 150mm BUT with 1/4 Pen

3. Massive HP for light cruiser

4. 6 sec reload? its smell like T8 Nurnberg

5. AA is decent

minus :

1. snail as prinz eugen with super mediocre concealment

2. no repair party

3. thinner armor than her sister but have turtleback.... 

4. torpedo is only for show off

 

its basically long range HE spammer.....

 

if only KRI Irian AA is this good...... i mean, JUST NEED AADF... why the heck only hydro....

They need to implement a “GET FOWARD” command.

Go Forward / Charge:Smile_hiding:

Mainz eh? 

I have been eyeing this one for some time now.

Also weird that is has been released with no fanfare. Aren't new Premiums and offers released on Fridays?  Perhaps there will be an article then.

Yep. If @Paladinum hadn't pointed it out, I wouldn't have gone looking in the shop for it.

I saw the Makarov in battle like... 2 times ever since release 😂 That's soooooooooo sad.

I doubt they are going to say anything at all. 

To be frank it was a complete accident that I know Mainz being on sale. My browser doesn't keep my account logged in some times, so one thing led to another, I ended up in the Premium Shop (because it would) and saw the ship being on sale.

Sort of, but it doesn’t tell people that if they come out from behind the island, they can actually shoot at an enemy, or tells people to come closer so their guns are more accurate, or come forward to provide PRESENCE any maybe convince the enemy that pushing forwards is a bad idea.

Whale Hunting.

https://asia.wargaming.net/shop/wows/vehicles/14270/

OK, so the Admiral Pack seems a lot of money to spend on one ship in one game. Agreed. Seems crazy. Whatever.

But of course it's more than one ship - you get other things that you use in the game.

How does the value tally up? I want this ship. Should I buy the ship alone or Whale Up and get the other things too?

Rough price breakdown. Please tell me if I have miscalculated.

All prices in Australian Dollars.

 

$62            Price for Ship alone + slot + x3 missions
$8              Cost for 1500 doubloons to buy a 10 point captain from Armoury
$15            Rough cost for 5million credits (you can buy 15mill for about $45 in premium shop)
$24            Signals (you can get a pack of 300 in the premium shop for about $48)
$16            3000 doubloons

??               50 Europe camos
??               Commemorative flag

 

I get $125 when adding my rough estimates for what you could pay if you bought each part of the bundle seperately (not accouting for 50x Europe camos and the flag, which I don't know how to set a price for).

 

EDIT: I forgot the 3000 doubloons.

 

Double Edit: I guess the "bonus" you get is the European camos and the flag. Which they are saying are worth $31.05.
