Hey Wargaming can you please sell the USS Albany on the North American Server?

I already have a cleaned up skin for it.

I already have it, and it's a pretty bad ship. Still better than the Katori, though.

It'll probably get given away at some point, or given as a "special" prize. But sold? for real cash money? <shudders>

​I wouldn't be buying it because it's an OP ship, but as the sole veteran of the Spanish American War, it's sort of a must have.  Sides, she looks really cool in her White cammo :)

Well they sold it on the EU server for around 2 euros a long while back. Not sure why they can not sell it on the NA server for a few bucks. Sure it is a crappy ship to play but she is beautiful. Personally I like the low tier premium ships, they are fun to play.

I really enjoy mine. No, it doesn't up-tier well, but I manage a 53% win rate in it. . . .

Albany is one of the most beautiful ships in the game;

sadly, it is also one of the most difficult to perform well in.

But it IS beautiful.

They gave her out b4 so maybe they will hand her out again.

 "Even as we began laying smoke, the Japanese started lobbing shells at us and Johnston had to zigzag between the splashes....

We were the first destroyer to make smoke, the first to start firing, the first to launch a torpedo attack...."

Wherever there is a mess the destroyer runs first She is expendable and dangerous.

Got it for free back in the day, when the promo code "Albany" still worked.

It was very bad initially with barely over 8 km gun range.  She got a buff to range since, however, and isn't nearly as painful now.

Yes, she is quite stunning.  That pretty white paint with gold paint trim, and those long, black guns bristling out everywhere...very nice.

Yeah, it was for WG's anniversary or something, as I recall.  When her gun range was 8 km I hated her and sold her.  I knew she was pretty and may be rare, so I regretted the sale, submitted a ticket, and thankfully got her back.  I do enjoy taking her out now and then...

Albany is a really powerful ship in the hands of a seal clubber.  Powerful AP, nice manuvering.

Totally Unrelated, Pigeon_of_War, I've seen you in-game several times, and your name always makes me chuckle.  Just thought you were some random player, I never realized that you worked as a producer for WarGaming.  Good name choice by the way.

Haha, the Albany can be a fun little boat, it is most certainly anything but OP, yet for those willing to try to work within her abilities she can certainly perform sometimes.  Probably one of the benchmarks of UP premiums.
