Atlanta costs 9k gold while Scharnhorst only costs 9500, tier 6 cruisers cost 46-4700 with degrasse costing 5500 for who knows why. 

i would get the Scharnhorst but have Tirpitz so don't kneed it right now but Atlanta would be nice for U.S  ships . 

For same tier bb vs cruiser kii costs 12,900 and atago costs 10,700, its about an 18% difference 

With the same math at most Atlanta should cost 7,500 the most without being to greedy would be 8k why is it 9k. 

u could get Loyang for 8k for 5-7% more  u could get equal tiered bbs.

according to all their other pricings this should at higher than avg cost 8k at the most

Spend it. Once you learn how to play it, you will regard that as a modest outlay for years of fun. It's probably my favorite ship now that I have mastered it. Really tough to learn, but pays huge dividends for the team once you learn position play and how to make your shells land where you want them to.

I recommend you practice with it in Ultimate Frontier and Narai again and again. That will totally pay off in confidence in handling it, shooting skills, and positioning skills.

People will still buy the Atlanta, it is a ship that is highly desired and not available very often, so essentially wargaming is capitalizing on that.

If I were you, I would wait. From time to time there are discounts on tech tree premium ships, and with the USN cruiser split approaching, there could be a chance some premiums will be discounted. Atlanta will stick around for a while, and you will receive prior notice before it leaves the tech tree again.

Sure glad I purchased mine way back when and it was only 20+ something dollars on sale if I remember right. (could be wrong though, it may have been right at about $30.)(its been a while)(lol)

Do you think there is any chance that WG would make some sort of campaign to earn one of these ships for free?

Personally, I doubt it, but I'd like to hear other opinions.

Last I heard, Operation Narai had been withdrawn indefinitely and was not being offered.

They will bring it back after improving it.

In other words; after making it impossible to win.

Until the OP has a lot more games played.

Atlanta is borderline overpowered in experienced hands, or all but useless and nothing more than a target, a detriment to a team, and a source of frustration to an inexperienced player.

High cost is an economic way of limiting the Atlanta’s influence in either case.

Yep, I potato'd hard. Saw Fushun in the MM but it was actually a Fujin as I found out when I charged it. Really need to read more closely....

Waaa... seriously? She's like devastating in the correct hands (not mine for sure). Put another way, "Look kid, the price is the price - either you want her or  you don't." 

Think of it like a fixed price, sometimes on sale. You could wait until they feel they've just about sold enough of them but that might entail you missing the chance to buy her.

She is pretty pricy, but I figured what the hell, most of these doubloons I got cheap anyway so she ended up only costing me like $15-$20 dollars.

If you feel the ships is too expensive then you can wait for a possible sale at the US cruiser split or maybe a sale on doubloons.

would you rather they didn't bring it back into the shop.  No one is making you buy it, WG may feel that those who really want it, will pay for it regardless.

The Atl. she is worth it, of all the ships that WOWS made, the ATL is high in the fun and difficult to learn scale. I have never had buyers remurse in getting the ATL, always fun to play.

Get a Flint if you think she is too pricey..

For me she is worth it and it wasn’t worth the hazzle to get a Flint.

No, the Takao was at Tier 8.

And yes, imho 9500 doubloons is too much for the Atlanta, but this is a business, and WG is about making money....People will pay it. 

If I were to buy it with the steam bundle doubloons it would cost about $18, much better price, but not worth it to me.

Gled, if you get a chance ask bitterman what goes through his mind every time he sees me on the opposing team in my Atlanta. Then you'll know why its so worth the price.
