Hey everybody,

 

We have noticed a lot of threads going on regarding USS Alabama and we wanted to clarify a few things for all of you:

USS Alabama that is currently coming to the World of Warships client is indeed a special ship only available to the Supertesters as a reward ship. This ship is going to be given to testers who have dedicated an exceptional amount of time to the improvement of World of Warships.

 

We are planning to sell a regular version of Alabama in the future, unfortunately we don’t have specific dates to share with you at this time. Normally we don’t announce sales this far in advance, but seeing the overwhelming response to this ship, we have decided to make an exception.

 

Keep your eyes on the portal and forums for more information when it becomes available.

 

Good luck out there!

There. You people happy now?  Thanks for responding so quickly, I wasn't one of the ones up in arms over this but I understood the concerns of those who were. Even some of your own supertesters and CC's were disappointed by this news, though apparently we shouldn't have been worried. Should have probably said this in the first place and avoided the whole debacle.

Good, now maybe things will quiet down around here. Good to see you guys responding so quickly to this. I'm not one of the one's who were overly concerned about Alabama, but it's good to see that WG doesn't want to keep such an iconic and special ship to a very small group of individuals.

Thank you, the supertesters do deserve a ship for all the hard work they put in.

Yay! The thread spamming can stop now. So now start a campaign (JK) to get me a Arkansas, a ship I actually care about.

Thank you Trevzor, I wish this clarification could have come sooner when the topic started to blow up, but I guess beggars can't be choosers.

Probably because this wasn't the original plan.

This would also explain the radio silence for the last two days.

   Here here. And come on WG, this has to make you feel good that people love your product enough to be this passionate? Or, we're all Prima Donna pains in the a__es. Or both maybe. Either way, thank you; planned or not , good call.

See?  People need to have more faith in WG.  Timed exclusivity, which is entirely fair and valid.

 

All this impotent rage just because people were insecure that WG would never sell her at all.  :facepalm:


My massive list of suggestions (Updated 05/17/2016).  Feel free to constructively debate and discuss.

Remember remember the 17th of September, the Tirpitz; which cost a lot.  Some say it's a fortune, and that it's extortion; but the price will never be forgot.

First I'm glad they are doing this.

Second , they could have said this initially.

Finally though , the cynical part of me says this was NOT the original plan and though they will never admit it , the shitstorm raised is the reason it will be sold.
