hi

Well since those few posts and pics last week have not herd 1 whisper, uttering or rumour about the ship, have the super testers got her yet.

the latest public patch notes don't have anything either, WG HQ seems to have sealed there lips tight on this baby, the wait is killing me.

God I hope they don't pull another Scharnhorst on us where we have to wait 3 months for them to finish testing.

regards

P.S. changed heading hope this fixes the confusion

I had to look at your tag to see what ship you were talking about. There are too many ships named after admirals and with admiral in the name to just call a ship "the admiral", especially when everyone calls it the Graf Spee or Spee.

 

To answer your question, there will be more info on it when it is closer to release. And I'd rather wait for it to be ready than them rush it and it be flawed.

Lol I thought he was talking about a player or something, like maybe "the admiral" was ill, half the players in game are Admiral so and so...

Just for reference, OP, the term "Admiral" is usually associated with the Admiral-class battlecruisers of the Royal Navy, of which Hood was the only completed example.

 

The Deutschland class heavy cruisers that take after admirals are typically referred to by their namesakes instead.  Admiral Graf Spee, for instance, is typically referenced as Graf Spee for short.

Patience is overrated. But the HAMS Perth sale will end at Friday let's see what comes then.

It hasn't even made it into the live client yet for play testing. So SoonTM but not too soon. 

 

Probably gonna hit the live client next patch, after that it's up to marketing and management to decide on when to sell.

Apparently, proper grammar is overrated as well.  OP was painful to read.

@OP  According to the patch notes the Graff Spee is going to start super testing with the upcoming patch.  So we can expect it soon™

According to the most recent datamined stats, Missouri now has the same 33 knot top speed as Iowa.  Basically she trades weaker close-in 20mm AA firepower for one more 40mm mount and somewhat better armor in a few places.  For consumables she has radar in place of a catapult plane.

 

Of course this is all still subject to change.

Graf Spee comes out in the event of a Extinction Level Event, I.E. a super asteroid hitting earth, when a Supervolcano like Yellowstone or at least 4 supervolcanoes erupt

I am with you OP, waiting for the Spee, but in the words of that ancient Chinese philosopher Confucius

On the plus side (and has been noted) the Spee was released to the supertesters (according to the release notes)
