I was hoping for Haida until I saw the "Kidding part"

Hopes and dreams crushed once again.

Last news I heard about Haida was that Pigeon went to St. Pete about 2-3 months back for his visit and was trying to convince them to bring her in game or get the ball rolling like he did with Enterprise, but it didn’t go so well.

Looking forward to the USS Kidd... if for nothing more than the historic value. Although after seeing NoZoupforYou's review on how it's been rebalanced, I'm definitely intrigued to see how it will play in game.

I haven't heard that. Pigeon told me he was working on it about two months ago and there was a Naval Legends episode filmed.

 

Hopefully that isn't true.

The two ships celebrating their anniversaries currently has me confused, I'm not sure if they're referring to when they were laid down, launched, commissioned, or what have you.

"Preparing for the invasion" leaves me wondering too.

"The Armada returns and it's bigger than ever" is a reference to that enormous $400 package that included every non-exclusive premium released to that point.

And I have no clue what the reference to Meat Loaf is supposed to mean.

I'm debating getting it for competitive play, but I just don't see it standing up in Randoms. 

 

WG is clearly getting screwed over by the 6.3 bloom changes. They can get away with ignoring the existing USN ships, but with Kidd and Pan-Asian ships they are getting bitten by the problem they created.

For shame Drake. You don't think Wargaming would seek to undo their mistakes when they can just make new ones.

He replied to a tweet about it on Twitter a while back when asked about it and his trip to Saint Pete.

Haha. IKR. Someone needs to tell them that the Soviet Union isn't around anymore. They won't actually get sent to the Gulag if they admit that an idea didn't work out and revert the changes. 

 

The game would be be so much better if they did.

I get the song 'out of the frying pan and into the fire'

 

Maybe he's going to be a Captain? If they can place an Actor in game as a captain, why not a Musician/Actor?

Maybe the “pan” part is a hint at the Pan Asia line being released.

Well, Steven Seagull has Russian citizenship and one of his movies involved the Missouri (at-least within the story) so that at least made some degree of sense. Not sure how Meat Loaf would get involved in WoWS.

That would actually be pretty clever. Rather out of character for wargaming.

For the premium ship returns, if we're going by commission dates, Indianapolis was in commissioned in 1932 (85 years), while Blyskawica was commissioned in 1937 (80 years).

 

If WG is going by launch dates, then disregard anything I've mentioned here.

No clue what they are referring to with "Preparing for the Invasion".  Maybe a follow-up to the ongoing Halloween clues?

Indianapolis is still available in the premium shop though. 

Leningrad was laid down on 5 November 1932 - (85 years) so that's also a possibility.

That's the confusing part.  Are they referring to ships being laid down or launched?  I'm assuming the latter, but could be completely wrong.

If this is going to be a slow one, what's the fast one?

Hopefully the release of French battleships, some more interesting premiums such as Vampire, Aigle, T-61 and maybe a new scenario in the rotation would make for an interesting January or February.
