While looking at the tech tree, with update 0.7.1.0 Giulio Cesare is no longer available.   I am so glad I picked her up a few days ago.   The Cesare has become my favorite ship, super fun to play.

And if speculation is to be believed, we may never see her for sale again.

Most of the ships that were added during the christmas period have been removed, including such winners as Oleg and Krasny Krim, which like the GC, will probably return at some future date, lol.

It's pretty broken.

I'm not sure if I'd go so far as to say it's a tier 5 Nikolai... but close.

If a total moron like me can get 150K-175K damage with some regularity it is a totally broken ship.  Glad it's gone, but everyone who wanted it probably had it already.

It could be.  That being said, Nikolai has pretty strong armor...while you have to angle in a GC.  A broadside GC = dead.

Broadside Nikolai is just as dead. I've gotten nuked by Nassaus in mine when I got careless and gave them too much side.

Nikolai side armor is garbage. Probably more garbage than GC side armor. The bow armor and turret angles are what count here.

I'm waiting for the Abruzzi to become available. So far I have every Italian ship and would hope that since the Giulio Cesare is gone, to fill it's spot with the Abruzzi ;)  (I'm not worried about it's current state either)

Guilio is one of my Fav ships!  Was waiting for the Italians and they have not disappointed.  Guilio is OP over her historical counter part in her ability to maneuver, and her 12.6 inch guns seem to be fairly robust, but with a slower rate of fire than you should see for this lighter gun.  Comparison would be the T5 New York, with 14'' guns, and in a duel you got to go with the Guilio in game, but historically have to go with NY. (Where all BBs are seen equally well lol)  So with the better concealment that makes her a bit OP, but probably as in most cases, comes down to the skill of the captain.

This appears to be a pattern for super OP BB premiums, especially at the lower tiers(Nikolai gone, Gangut, gone, Caesare gone). I think the current lineup of BB premiums tend to be more common in game and less OP.

I've found it to be way OP relative to tier.  And it's not anecdotal, either.  It's not only the highest DPS Tier V BB out there, it's so OP that it comes in between the Kii (Tier 8) and the Duke of York (Tier 8) with an average DPS of 53,980 and has higher DPS than at least half the Tier 7 & 8 BBs and all the Tier 6.   It's monster.   I'm glad I have one.  :)

folk are presuming the ship is gone for good. The evidence is shaky at best. Cheers!

 

My experience (from WoT) is that when they really foul up, they don't re-release.

If you check, it seems there were eleven other ships that were taken down from tech tree sales the same day. Most of those suck. Just saying there may be another explanation.

Well, I am glad I bought mine when I did. I love that ship. I just don't play her as much.

I have found that every ship that has been sold will one day be sold again.
