Missed collections, chance to reacquire?

For those who come later to the game, or missed due to real life, or started the game because of the movie Dunkirk, will these people ever get a chance to shoot for these special rewards?

 

I am, selfishly, asking because due to real life I missed out on Jack Dunkirk.  But, for those folks who want the Bismarck that come later on into the WoWS community, what about them?

 

Just curious...

 

Good sailing everyone.

We kinda thought that about the ARP ships.

The collections aren't comparable to the ARP ships. For one, ARP was a collaboration with another company, the collections were not.

 

ARP is not returning. December was their Last Hurrah.

 

There's a chance for collections like Dunkirk and Bismarck to return because these are completely internal WG creations.

Nope. I saw someone with some authority weigh in on this in a previous thread (looked but didn't find it) and they said that there was basically no chance of revisiting old collections and that if you didn't get Jack then that's that.

I could be remembering incorrectly, but I'm pretty sure @NikoPower stated it may happen?

 

Correct me if I'm wrong, that thread's pretty buried.

On the plus side, WG is always running some sort of special. Suggest you try the operations as you can earn 10 point captains there pretty easily.

However WG's promotional materials have made it very clear that Isoroku Yamamoto and the Yamamoto collections are permanent and not going to become 'unavailable' like Dunkirk or Bismarck did.

They still didn't have to offer all the previous ships at the end. it's the same thing as the collection, They could have let you miss out on Any number of ships you weren't around for, calling them a Collaborative one time event .  They didn't, they brought back all the ships from the beginning to give everyone a shot at them one last time.

Being that the Collections are WGs, there is nothing stopping them from bringing them back , say once a year, if they so choose.

December was still within the contract period, so no it's not really comparable and was still within WG's rights to re-release them like that.

 

And I'm on the side of "Bring collections back periodically", before you lose sight of who is arguing what, here.

I honestly have no idea what you are arguing, we are both agreeing with each other. LoL

The event itself probably wont come back, but there will most likely be the crates in the premium shop at one point.

I think your right, but I'm not a 100% sure. I didn't care enough to keep digging for it lol.

 

Edit: Yup, Nuk_ dug it up.
