FYI,

 

For all those who have maybe been sitting on the fence about buying Konig Albert, today is the last day to get this overpowered premium.  It will be removed from the premium shop for good starting tomorrow, and stored away forever with the likes of Gremyashchy and Imperator Nikolai in the hallowed ranks of ships to never be sold again.  And to be honest, for just over $10.00, she's a pretty good steal at T3 as she completely outclasses all other same tier BB's.

 

On a secondary note, the following premium ships will be removed from the in-game tech tree (for doubloon purchase) starting tomorrow as well:

  • Aurora
  • Emden
  • Campbeltown
  • Krasny Krym
  • Smith
  • Tachibana

 

To be replaced in-game by:

  • Katori
  • Albany
  • Oleg
  • Kaga
  • Mikasa
  • Hood
  • Cool 1

No sir.  Just don't like to hear people cry when they miss out on ships, especially when they are as OP as Konig Fat Albert at T3.

I'd suggest buying her before she's gone if you like German BBs or reasonably think you may ever enjoy German BBs.

No public outcry over the removal of the OP Krasny Krym from the tech tree?  May be last chance people - KK divisions will be running wild...

True.  Plus, she makes a decent captain trainer once you stack her with Scharnhorst and Tirpitz, as they can all work with the same captain setup.

Highly recommended ship.  She's fun at the lower tiers as long as you don't find yourself facing an enemy Carrier.

ROFL. Anything termed the 'Krispy Kreme' just has to be 'good' now doesn't it? Anyone up for an OP dose of sugar &, eventually, diabetes?

The only reason besides just having the King as part of your inventory would be to go seal-club, which is a good way to chase off new players. If you want a premium Germain BB to train a commander, buy the Scharn.

Had her in port since she first went on sale and have only played her a few times.  Seal clubbing is not fun or challenging and makes you develop bad habits :cap_hmm:

I'm waiting for the Okhotnik to come back. 

 

I went to buy it on the last day it was on sale last time. I missed it by by just a few hours. 

 

Plz come back Okhotnik.

I just find it funny they are adding Kaga when everyone is screaming that she might be OP.

Yep.  I'm glad she will be gone now, as new players in Kawachis and South Carolinas will be at a more level playing field now.

Still scratching my head on this one too.

It's quite probable that Orion may assume the KA role and be relatively undisputed now that KA has gone based on the reviews.

We'll see. I fully intend on sailing my Albert complete with 19 pt GK commander on the day of UKBB release.

I hate that thing. 

 

It cannot hit the waterline reliably at 2km. Garbage. 

I agree that they need to give Albert a dispersion buff on her way out as a farewell gift

Too bad I don't have any 19pt German captains. :Smile_sad:

I'll be cycling through low tier DD's for giggles.

Especially the IJN ones, what with my free 10-pt TAE/CE captains from the ARP ships.  ;)  I still fondly remember the days after the KM BB's came out. So many potatoes, so many torp hits, so many Dev Strikes.

I wish they wouldn't offer the Mikasa like this. Just yesterday I tried to talk a new player off the ledge from jumping into a graf spee. I'm afraid too many new players will see a cute, cheap BB for sale & then get absolutely wrekd in it & be of no use to their team. It takes a 19pnt commander & every flag you can fit on it just for an expert player to get any damage out of it, what chance does a newb have? Needs to stay as a rewards ship for those who can get through missions & such...
