Was going to gift a ship to a friend for her birthday, but there's a huge lack of premium ships in the store right now... What's up with that?

 

Patch 7.1 had a premium reshuffle, with most going out. Most likely to let new premiums in as there are a half dozen or so in various states of testing. The T-61 Soon looks like it may need to be re-named T-61 Later.

Generally most ships are not for sale at the same time.

The only reason so many ships were up was the holiday, and WG was testing whether that could make more money just leaving most ships up...clearly they didn't feel it was working as well as limited sales.

What's the point of taking ships off gold list in game? So people that already bought gold have to spend more?

It creates artificial rarity, you're more likely to buy a ship you where considering if you think it's your last chance.

I get that. However, for people who set themselves a very strict budget for gaming... well, we got the money now, may not have it later. They miss out on a sale. Just sayin. And in this specific case, nothing worthy of my cash now, not in this game, so I'll get a gift elsewhere. So this sale is definitely gone.

Anyone ever see the TV commercial about Avocados crop going to be damaged everyone rushes to the store to buy when the radio announcers says avocados are saved Prunes are in danger. This is called panic buying. A very successful marketing ploy. WG is using a Rarity Ploy  self imposed by them.

I don't know what is in the tech tree right now, but you can get her doubloons and she can pick from there too you know.

True, but she's a carrier master, plays nothing but. Was going to look at the three I know are premiums... but... well, they're not there. I think she would have been quite happy about an Enterprise. Her Gramps served on it. Plus she's a history professor that specializes in WWII naval history, and she's been studying the Enterprise lately. And in our spare time.. we play some WoWS.

Sounds like true love. Happy Valentine’s Day to you both!
