I wanted to know how long I have to waffle on a decision to spend more money, so I went back and looked at the conditions stated on the WoWS web site.  Here's what they say:

The sale is in two parts, 1) the Doubloon Blowout, 2) the Golden Week.

The Doubloon Blowout is of two parts:

  • The Doubloon discount (250 D for every $10 spent).  This ends early Monday morning, essentially tonight.
  • The $5 Starter Deal (Ishizuchi et al.).  This runs through May 11.

The Golden Week sale runs through Friday, May 4 early morning:

  • Doubloon and Credit discounts on Japanese ships and bundles.
  • 50% off ship upgrades and permanent camos.

I can find no statement about the time span of the Steam Bundles. They might go away tonight.

If, like many, you buy the four "no brainer" ship bundles, you will have spent $34.97, for 750 D.  Spend another $5.03 or more for an additional 250 D.

 

Tl;dr - If you're going to spend money, spend it today, and spend enough to fill out that last $10.

Don't have, need or want the Ichi.

Bought the other three bundles for the Doubloons, but still haven't gotten the Texas bundle...and Support seems to be determined to ignore the documented proof I've provided...at least so far.....:Smile_teethhappy:

The way I see it, the ichi js the cherry on top. You start the yamamoto collection without having to complete the campaign, you get 25 good camos and 24 dragon flags.

These alone would still make it worth it.

Yes, it's a great value, but I don't really need a ship I'll probably never play....

And could care less about the Yamamoto campaign since I really don't play IJN at all. So while it's a good value, more camo and flags for $5 isn't something I really need...

Besides, I'm still waiting on WG to give me that last bundle, and they haven't responded since the original response this morning that ignored my proof and claimed the transaction didn't go thru....

Not likely to hand them more money, if they can't even bother to read the attachment showing the payment was made...:Smile_sceptic:

Yeah, I passed on the BB deals; I'm not really any kind of a BB player. I did pick up a Graf Spee, even tho I'm not much of a CA player, either; it's just that it's ... Graf Spee! And for 10 bucks!

Me neither.  But even without the ship, which you can sell for about 1.3M Cr, the rest of the bundle is well worth the $5.

That's a good point.  I didn't even know I *could* start the collection until a bit suddenly showed up in a crate.  The crates alone are worth $4 in the Shop.

If you can still see the ship in the Shop, buy it again.  The mere fact that you were able to do so is proof that the first transaction didn't go through, and you can dispute any double charge outside WG if necessary.

Get her for the crates and the port slot, LOL

I didn't know what to make of her either, except... extremely cheap Japanese premium battleship for training and first-win-bonusing low-tier Japanese captains (which is where I am now). But she's (almost) the most fun I've ever had playing battleships, so I'm not regretting that purchase one bit.

(The most fun I ever had playing battleships was a Normandie game I played recently. First 100K damage game in Randoms. Tense, but rewarding.)

The best part is that after it begins you get drops from normal containers, so you can finish the whole collection without finishing the campaign itself :Smile_great:.

Hit up a Mod.

I'm sure you prolly remember back in the day others were able to get things worked out going through them.

Idk if the new staff will do anything, but I'd at least hit up Pigeon if you haven't already.

Except the first transaction did go thru, and it's been deducted from my account....Not going to pay for it twice....:Smile_teethhappy:

I provided them with the receipt from Amazon pay....which shows a successful transaction and a deduction from my account.

I had this happen to me last night with the anshan bundle. The first transaction looked like it succeeded but i never go the ship and no receipt from WG but my CC did get charged via amazon. I'm working through a support ticket now but if that doesn't workout i'm going to have to dispute it as a double charge.

$35 for 18k in Doubloons plus port slots and commanders seemed like no brainer considering I already had all four ships.
