Give me a free crappy bote that's way sub par and I'm like "Meh". Give a snazzy optional camouflage with it and I'm all over it like flies on crap.

Thanks WG, this looks so much better than the plain green Varyag comes with standard.

What, were you expecting a Admiral Kuznetsov? You get what you get, you do what you want with her.

Are you saying that the beauty of the Varyag is only skin deep?

I think my expectations for Varyag were so low that it didn't take much to exceed them.  Don't get me wrong, she is nothing spectacular.....but it wasn't nearly an abysmal experience as I was expecting.

Yeah that historical looking camo is only reason Ii have not yet hit sell button, but will I use her, no way. I do not use Russian ships, lol only reason I have 2 Russian battles in my stats is because a friend wNted my personal opinion on how Diana performs in battle... So for him I played 2 battles in a Rusdian ship.

This is one of the most gorgeously detailed ships in the game, whichever paint you choose.  I'll only rarely use it in Randoms, though I've already used it a few times in Co-ops, but I'm keeping it because this boat is such a joy to look at in port.  The viewable interior details are particularly impressive, especially the pilothouse and the space beneath the fantail.

Well, considering how cats flail so much in water, they never go anywhere a full body length deep, I guess.

As for Varyag... Hmm. She looks alright, it's a nice clean camo for once.

Well Lert, I am guilty too. It is a very pretty looking ship in that Camo.

Can't wait to earn her and get to look at her myself, looks good in the pic but will probably look better in port. Just started the part 2 this morning though, only half done.

Mine is a port queen too. But I love the camo. Can I haz it for my ImpNiko?

I agree, took a closer look and she is very detailed.

Oh, and the Russians have their benches inside because of the cold weather.

Don't forget the LazyBoy recliner shown through the large gunports on the sides of the ship.

Best case scenario, a T3 freebie which doesn't promote seal clubbing too much and by looking great makes people feel satisfied.

 

Now, where'd I park my similarly good looking but lethally effective little Vampire...?

Dammit LERT, I might HAVE to buy that cammo as she looks great.

I enjoyed playing her . She seemed to perform better than Diana.

If you have the yellow flag with the dog it will match the stacks.

My wife has no interest in this game, but even she is impressed by the amount of detail they've packed in.

I have gone over to this camo, slapped a captain with BFT and AFT on her, and gone charging in to let the substantially-buffed secondaries do their thing to bots. 

As soon as I have enough captain points, I will add either Demolition Expert or IFHE to this mix.

(The only other thing they could do is add burn marks where firing the guns spoils the paint. But this is good.)

It really is, the developers of this ship really did a great job of making it beautiful. The detail work on the secondaries is just plain awesome!

Which is the exact same reason I keep Albany!

We varyag div'd up last night.  A win, 59k, 1 kill.  It was a pleasant experience.    It seems like it has kolberg gun arcs, but the shells actually do damage.

I agree. I was pleasantly surprised by the camo and the model detail.

I have no idea what that is. Probably an American thing or a thing for people that have a TV?

<Edit> I looked it up, turns out it's a movie who's premise really doesn't interest me, so ...
