Is the Kidd going sale this weekend?

 

Is the Kidd any good?

 

Is the forum fox a nice guy?

 

Will I buy it anyway?

It has been shelved for the time being. She is not in testing, and not going to go on sale any time soon.

 

Which forum fox? There are a couple.

 

That's entirely up to you.

Before I answer I need a question answered. Why was it shelved?

You made the claim that the monthly briefing referred to it, why do you first need to know why the Kidd was shelved before you can back up your claim?

No on can can answer why other than the people under contract not to speak on it. My guess it that they tested it, decided it was just a lesser Fletcher that didn't really bring anything worthwhile to the game. Since they already had another Fletcher on the way in the Pan-Asian line they probably though that the Kidd might be too redundant. But that is all just speculation.

I would say yes and you will have like two days to buy before it is pulled for balancing and the owners get to have while it is fixed. Also they receive exclusive access.

The hell are you talking about?  What reason do you have to think it's going to be released at all, let alone soon. Why did you reference the monthly briefing as a reason for expecting the Kidd?

If I am right WG is losing faith in the super testers to create product.

ST don't create stuff, they just test them.

CCs sometimes get early access to the testing version.

It's WG/Lesta that creates the product

As for why it was shelved, it was due to the uniqueness being really drab.

You trade off a torpedo mount for more AA, that wasn't even all that outstanding or impressive, on a Fletcher hull, but the torps you got were Benson torps.

Think OP might be referring to the bubblegum or pirate talk hints:

 

  • “I’m here to kick stern and chew bubblegum…again!” 
  • The key to my heart 
  • Argh, Matey!

This dude is a box of weasels on meth; and you're arguing with him? Put him on the short bus and send him home.

If they released Kidd as it was presented it'd sell poorly and many complaints would be had.

The gimmick wasn't strong enough for WG to move forward on it at this time.

Uh hey everyone,

I just walked by the WG store.  It looks like Walmart used to the night before a Harry Potter book release or Call of Duty Release.  It reminds me of December 23rd with a line around the block and thousands of parents waiting for doors to open so they could trample, bash, shove and push in order to obtain a cabbage patch kid for Christmas morning.  People have signs saying thing like "Free the Kidd" and "Me Rikey Round eye DD"... Human behavior at it's worse....well, I gotta go...I gotsta get in line! :cap_rambo:

Why would you even want THAT?!?  Then to top it off, it's tier 8, so you're going to be in T10 battles all the time.  No thanks.
