Yes, it was 50 per cent off until yesterday. 

It is still op.

Sorry to rub salt in the would, but it was worth every half-off doubloon I spent!  I personally find it a lot more fun to play than the Nikolai.  If it comes back on sale again, you should grab it (if you like to play BB's)...

It was also given away in quantity as a gift to inactive players.....

The player numbers seem to show it was a success....:Smile_teethhappy:

I agree that the Giulio Cesare was worth getting and at 50% off just made it that much more appealing. I was going to just chance on getting it in a Christmas Box till I saw it wasn't in any of them unless you got super lucky. I missed the chance to get it when it was first released and was happy to see it for sale again during the holidays.

Picked it up with my Ranked doubloons. I know a few other people who did too. Pretty nifty little ship, though it suffers from the same nonsensical salvos as all the low tier BBs. Of course, if it shot like a high tier BB, it would be the most broken ship in the game, so I supposed that's a fair trade off.

To be fair, the ship is squishy for a BB, even for a Tier V BB.  But if you know how to milk survival in a BB, it's freaking amazing.  Only things you should fear are properly played DDs and air attack.  And 15"+ guns :cap_cool:

Yes, I had only played briefly in the past with a few tier 2 & 3 ships and then they dropped this ship, a bunch of credits, a bunch of flags, and such in my email so I got drawn back in, success on their campaign. I now have mostly tier 4-6 tier ships and slowly learning the ins and outs of the game and getting into the battle. I can't seem to do diddly squat with DD's and cruisers and do decent with BB's as long as I remember to stay out of up close fighting but I seem to have a knack for the CCV and really getting into those so I guess that is my path. :)

Given away and some.  I hadn't played in months and I am now playing a few hours every day and have spent about $50 since.  Well played WG, well played.

It's still in the tech tree just not half off.  I think that it's worth its full price in doubloons.  It's a damn fine and fun BB to play.
