So apparently they are releasing Hood in staggered bundles once again. Not allowing you to just buy the ship and a slot till after the Campaign "Hunt for Bismarck" ends. I thought they learned from the backlash the last time not to do this again. Apparently not. I was really excited to see Hood added to the game. This foolishness makes me not sure I even want her anymore. I am sure I am not alone in that. How many people want to be forced to spend at least twice as much to get her in time for a campaign that revolves around her and Bismarck. Its almost as if they learned nothing from the last time people got so angry when they did these staggered bundled nonsensical releases. They did it with the Graf Spee and so many people got angry they relented and sold her in all forms at once. Come on Wargaming be realistic.

You don't have to have the Hood to complete the campaign. Having the Hood just makes it easier/faster to complete it. So just buy it after the campaign ends.

IIRC, the campaign doesn't actually revolve around Hood, and Hunt for Graf Spee didn't really either.

You needed Spee to complete Stage 1 of the camo campaign.

So spend some money, or ignore the campaign entirely. No one is forcing you to do it.

So spend 100 dollars or screw off pretty much. Got it. They don't want money from me that's fine.

These aren't the "earn 20,000 base XP" missions from hunt for Graf

I could probably unlock Bismarck in 4 hours or less.

Or wait a week or so and buy the hood (all the while working on the campaign in the mean time) and spend less money and buy it if you want it. Or don't. You don't need the Hood to complete the campaign and most of the steps aren't that hard.

 

Keep in mind that we haven't seen official NA bundles yet.

The nice thing about Graf Spee was you could get the Spee without buying it through the campaign, and still complete the 6 ship acquisition.

Plus I ended up with the Spee special camo somehow through a mission or whatever later I think.

Hey, maybe we'll be lucky and WG NA won't pull this stunt again after the amount of flak they got last time.

 

Maybe.

That is really my whole point. Why are they doing this crap again.

We don't know if they are doing it yet. At least I haven't seen anything about it yet on the WG NA page.

The tasks arent that hard with or without the Hood. This is not a big deal.

And everyone hated it. Even people like me who did eventually buy Prinz Eugen. When the Ship + Slot part came out.

And you could get Spee for free in the other campaign, with plenty of time to spare to get to the Tirpitz free XP camo.

 

In this campaign, Hood is not required from what I've seen. Once again, people are triggered over nothing. If you don't want the Hood bundle, then simply don't buy one. Problem solved.

It looks to me that the Hood is required to complete Task 8 of each mission.

It is but you dont need those tasks to finish the campaign.
