Zombie Hood Skin

I saw at Armored Patrol that a zombie skin for the Hood is going to be given away. The Hood is a war grave for over a thousand men, I think that the Zombie skin is a bad idea.

And so was Arizona, which was still sold.

And Indianapolis, the worst naval disaster in the USN, was sold.

And Yamato, which sunk with most of her crew. 

And Bismarck, who sunk with most of her crew as well.

 

I could go on.

Not as a "Zombie".

 

The Bismarck is the same thing.

 

I don't think it's a 'zombie' skin. It showed what damage Hood took at the encounter.

We've had this exact discussion about Bismarck.

And the Zombie Tiger skin? Or are 5 deaths per Tiger too few to worry about?

Looks to me like the skins for Bismarck and Hood represent how they look right now, on the ocean floor(or rather, how they would look if it were possible to raise their hulls to the surface), holes and everything.

The secret to solving this problem is to reach into the pants and untwist the knickers.

Yes.

Let them all rest in peace.

This is just a game.  If anything, their memory doesn't fade when we play these ships.

I don't think anyone here means any disrespect.

It definitely looks like battle damaged Hood. Not Zombie (I blame TAP). The same goes for Bismarck.

Kind of looks like any ship I'm sailing about 3 minutes into a battle.

It does have kind of a ghost ship feel to it but it comes down to where we draw the line? Most of these ships had fatalities aboard, many sunk with major loss of life.

Ironically enough, The 'Lucky A' Alabama never had a fatality...

And this is the ship that caused the most outrage in recent WOWS history.

...

What's that old saying...  "A [edited - complaining] sailor is a happy sailor."

As long as we leave politics and religion out of the matter...  there is no problem...

..wait..

Zombie is a supernatural Voodoo curse...  is that religious??   hmmmmm...  There may be some legal basis.

Remember Michael Jackson's disclaimer at the beginning of his video 'The Thriller'.

I love sunken boats, so I say yes to this camo.

 

Now make one for T-22. With holes and everything. Like the Flyfire.

I have to admit, that was a funny one!

 

Thanks all. Just my opinion.

Meh, I'm all for rust, water damage done paint, scrapes from paint removal, etc., but I don't get the appeal of this paint job at all. Battle damaged? Shoot, maybe I should get shot at for some battle damage paint removal. Or better yet, show how scraped up the bow of a Tirpitz is against a Yamato. There'd be some serious scratches right there. Maybe instead of buying flakey paint jobs we should be getting them during battle.

Not anymore. It's true, the "Zombie" has its roots in Hoodoo, but these roots have since culturally shifted to the idea that Zombieism is caused by a virus or pathogen.

Then how does Hood even float or have guns on her? She did not go down as she intact as Bismarck did, especially snce Bismarck never suffered ammo magazine explosions...
