 If she did 40 knots and could lol pen Yammy from the bow? Sure. But shes subpar at best. Shes not worth the lowest price of bundles.

Sigh. Hope they don't make Enterprise this bad, from the look of it she gets T7 planes at T8 which is so stupid - she's gonna fight Des Moines and Montanas ;_;

If you don't like it, wait until the right bundle or solo ship sale is going on.

Did you even look at the news article on the Hood release? This is just the first bundle, in a few weeks you can get just the ship for far less.

You can, when the campaign's over.

 

Also, only the $100 package lists 'Type 10 camo' - if the NA's doing the same as the EU then that's Hood's historic camo and thus the only way to get it is with the most expensive bundle. Which is not cool.

Hood Ultimate - now

Hood Fully Loaded - 25 May

Hood Deluxe -1 June

Hood - 7 June

 

It might not be the greatest of things to have the cheapest option available last but at least they are upfront about the dates & prices that will be available.

I dunno, Hood camos are a reward for Mission 6 of the campaign. But they are premanent camos, so Type 10 would be something different. (maybe a non-permanent version?)

In fairness, I don't think you can fault WG too much for this particular release because it is the essence of how any F2P game model needs to work to stay in business.  Essentially, everyone is being given a choice of their priorities and means because:

 

- if you have to have Hood now, you can pay for an extended bundle

- if you don't care for the extras & extra cost, you're just being asked to wait 3 wks for just the ship which is priced similarly to other Premium ships

- if you don't want the ship or spend for it, you still have a very doable Bismarck Campaign you can get the major prizes for without it.

Absolute bloody tosh.

 

Makes me glad I blew my discretionary income on that new graphics card, so I have an ironclad excuse to pass on another asinine staggered bundle. At least with the Spee the cheapest version of the ship was available with enough time to spare to have a chance at doing the associated campaign. This is just ridiculous and an utterly transparent money-grab. I honestly don't know what is worse: this, or the sheer unmitigated gall they have in "offering" the special containers for sale rather than grinding them out. I find myself suddenly bereft of even a single crumb of motivation to even try the campaign.

 

Wargaming, sit on it and rotate, because when you get to the bottom, the ride's over.

Yea unfortunately our low dollar is great for our service industry and tourism. 

 

Not so good for WOWS goods :P 

 

I do think they could give us a bit of a break by pricing it diff for CA users.. maybe like a 10 or even 15 % diff.. It would be nice if it wasn't as bad....

 

For example, the EURO is not 1/1 vs the USD . 

 

But for some reason this is priced the same as the EU . In reality if they followed the exchange rate the ultimate bundle in USD would be 110$  and in EU it would be 100.

Your kidding to get permanent camo we have to buy  the dearest bundle when any other premium ship gets with all bundles, are these people serious I live in Australia that deal will cost me $134 dollars plus.

And if I go for the cheapest deal this particular premium ship does not even get a permanent camo .

What did the staff at WOW/NA go on a all night drinking spree before putting these pricing deals together.

The campaign bundles are the 'zombie' or 'non historic color scheme' ones I think.

 

And if I go for the cheapest deal this particular premium ship does not even get a permanent camo .

 

I believe the cheap bundle still comes with a permanent camo, with the normal bonuses but it's a rip-off of HMS Repulse's scheme, and never worn by Hood.

It's just an extra permanent camo, the hood still comes with a permanent camo and if you do the campaign I believe you get another 2 permanent camos to put on the Hood.

As far as can be told, however, none of the camos on offer are the correct one for when she sank. When Hood went down, she was painted in overall 507B, which is a dark gray with a slight blue tinge, quite a bit darker than the single-color camo she wears in tester videos.

Look at it this way, Hood's 'camo' IRL was basically just allover grey, which is what she should look like with no camo.  So if you *have* to look period correct, just run her naked.
