Been waiting for this ship to go on sale again like forever. Now I see it and it says "Steam" Anshan Bundle. Does that mean it's ONLY available if you are on Steam...which I am NOT? Or is this some weirdo Steam Hype being put forth by WG? I don't want to drop the $$ on it to find out it's unusable without being on Steam.

Nope it's good for everyone, just bought 3 out of the 4 bundles. A WG mod stated it's just bad naming of the bundles.

I might be a little bit insane to do this but I just sold my Anshan so I could re-buy it with this deal.  

So basically for $10 I got a 6 point PA captain, 1500 doubloons, and 2.75 million credits (sale price of the original Anshan).

You know you would have gotten the dubloon value of the ship had you bought it without selling the old one...right?????

Well if you had bought it, while still having it, you would have been paid the ship price in doubloons, instead of credits (with the 1,500 comes to over 5,000 doubloons)

Felt pretty bad when I read your post, but at least you still had a net gain.

At $35 total for all four of 'em (and I have three of the ships already), I'm with Tugboat here.  Ship slots, commanders, doubloons for days and a Graf Spee?  Square deal!

Outstanding bundles. Spent $9.99x3 and got over 15k of doubloons. Now I'm buying the Lo Yang and Fletcher Permacamo and having many many doubloons to spare. I love today.

Nice idea. Didn't know. Got them all already but a bunch of gold and a captain for $9.99? Done!

Thanks for the tip.

WG skimped on hiring a communications/pr/risk management manager. Paid too much money to their art team probably, hohoho.

 

People also should remember econ 101 and the concept of "opportunity cost". Just because something's on sale, doesn't mean you should buy it. You should buy it if you were going to buy it before the sale.

I've almost pulled the trigger on Texas before. so it will be hard to reject this deal.  Graf Spee fills a need for a T6 KM cruiser.  They chose the ships for these deals well.

 

One should also remember Econ 101 and evaluate the potential sale for actual value, ignoring the "discount".  I bought Ishizuchi not because I wanted a sister to Myogi <ptui> but because of the rest of the bundle.  There's $10 worth of goodies even if the ship wasn't included.

Man, you are probably right! :Smile_teethhappy: BTW...the "Itchyzuchini" is actually a pretty fun ship and can earn some decent credits, even at that level. I got the Anshan and I enjoy it. It's as good as the regular tree tier 6 and it has that Free XP bonus too. Plus standard torps. Definitely worth what WG is charging for it. I been wanting it for a long time and I get it on sale. Pretty cool. :Smile_glasses:
