Personally, I’m really excited to get her. No matter how she turns out.

KGV class is one of my favorites. . . so yeah, I'm excited to get her.  Just hope the final stats don't make her a port queen.

 

I still say we need a Prince of Wales with:

- Reduced AA

- Warspite heal

- Longer secondary range

- Smoke screen (purely for escaping when overextended) ala Battle of Denmark Strait

I have a few days off after the patch so yes, I will earn her over the campaign.

Has it been confirmed or even hinted at officially that we can earn her? Last year with the Hood all you could earn was the camo. I wouldn't count this particular chicken before it hatches.

Any free premium that isn't IJN or KM (already have those) is certainly welcome.

The best kind of Premium ship is a Free Premium ship.  

And sometimes it isn't the prize but the journey to the prize that matters.

Where does this come from? I feel like I've been following all the news on the campaign, but I hadn't seen this yet.

Having a campaign to work is definitely a nice distraction... win or lose in battle you're always taking a bite out of something.

How about yes. Add a BB that trades its heal for a limited charge smoke screen. Give its guns a bit of a break on visibility when firing out of smoke so that the consumable has value even for a BB. That’s how you strip a heal off of a battleship without making it a big target.

As for the OP...nope. I’m not remotely excited about the Duke of York. I may not even bother grinding for the thing. WG went for finesse at first, then switched over completely to function, and in the end came up with something boring and unappealing. Free ships are never bad, and I’m happy that WG is offering us another one, but this one just leaves me with a sour taste.

Mixed views, a free ship is a free ship, but this one doesn't look that good and with Nelson and Hood already I don't know how much sea time she'll get. I hope she'll be fun.

I'm just happy that I will have the chance to earn her. 

From what I have seen, shes a very generic battleship (which isn't bad), and I would personally struggle justifying dropping ~$40 on her.

Well, might come back for the campaign. Though I won't be heart broken if I don't get it.

They flat out said you earn her in the campaign in the New Years video they posted today.

First leak was about 3 weeks ago. PTS offered the Tirpitz as a place holder. So the news is not really new. The new Dev video is the first time we got a official confirmation.
