Just wanted to throw out a pat on the back to WG for some excellent offers for Golden Week, most significantly the first time, long awaited discount on permanent camouflages.  The discount on IJN ships and 1/2 off ship modifications are just an added bonus.  And lastly, a 250 doubloon credit to every $10 spent in the Premium Shop.  I've already re-purchased the bulk of the mid-tier IJN ships that I sold to finish grinding out all my T10's and will be taking advantage of more of these discounts.

It honestly feels almost a good enough event weekend to be a WoWS birthday or something, but it's nice that it's here just because.  Thanks for the excellent discounts WG, and hopefully we see more events like this involving other tech tree lines as well.

I have to agree, nice to see a new group of offerings.  Do wish that tier 10 had been included in the perm camo sale, would have invested in 3 or 4 for some of my tiers 10s that are still naked, but not to be.

Could have something to do with the space camos that were just on sale. Many (inc. me) thought the 8000 doubloons was a steep price.

Imagine the kick in the teeth if WG then said 'you know that 8000 you spent - well take a look at the normal camos at half the price with the same bonuses!'

Ouch!

 

Edit: Although maybe they will offer Tier X camos after a little while?

What's with the "Steam Bundles"?  Anything to do with Steam?

 

Edit:  Best I can tell, nothing.

Gotta say that between the controversies of Asashio and GZ, the lack of any premium additions in general, this was a good step in the right direction. WG is not absolved of its mistakes but at least shows a good image.

 

Regarding steam bundles, you gotta be playing the game through -you guessed it- Steam. When I logged in, they were available in the premium shop.

Not true.  Just confirmed on my Alsace that the permanent camo is on sale for 2000 doubloons.

Perma camo for the Ryujo, Hiryu, Nagato, and maybe a DD or two.

How does this Doubloon credit kick in?

 

EDIT:  OK I see....

You don't get the extra Doubloon payout until May 5th (week of specials are over)

Yep, WG found a way to get me to spend money. Hope they realize how well this works and continue the practice.

Gold Week indeed.

Netted over 10,000 doubloons buying two ships I already own for less than $10 each. (the bundles are NOT just for Steam players)

Many people have been waiting to buy the "historical": Graf Spee.... now they can get it for $10.

Many people have been waiting to buy the Anshan.... now they can get it for $10.

Asashio in the shop.

Perma-Camos on sale (Got one for my Mogami)

Varyag in the offing. :fish_viking:

Well done WG :cap_like:

I wonder how many people from NA actually know what Golden Week is. It's a week starting from an end of April to early May in Japan containing a number of national holidays, almost like a spring break but its for both school and work alike. It doesn't affect me cause I'm in US but damn I miss these long holidays back in Japan.

It's because T10's are excluded from this sale.  I overlooked that too at first.

Sad because those are the ships that most would buy them for anyway.  But still, something is better than nothing.  Maybe we will get T10 camo discounts for WG or WoWS birthdays.
