Last year it was removed, but now she's back.

I was wondering if any info was given on why they made her available again?

Seems like they made a big deal about it being removed last year. I wonder if we'll see some of the other ships that are labeled similarly become available again?

Yep bought to see if I was wrong about it last time nope not OP. In fact it down tiers horribly and is very Unenjoyable if down tiered and dies quickly. Which it usually is down tiered so good luck if you think it’s OP on the up tier that might be a 1in 4 match.

It may be an OP tier 3 BB, but in the end, the King Al is still just a tier 3 ship, which makes it somewhat unappealing to me.

Konig Albert wasn't pulled globally, just regionally.

I agree.  I just played Konig Albert again.  Sure, it may be the best T3 BB, but it can't escape the fact that it is still a T3 BB.  Horribly bad dispersion, glacier speed turret traverse, and slow as molasses in January.  Being the best among turds doesn't mean it isn't still a turd.

Now add in typical T3 gameplay...OmG...it makes me want to bang my head against a concrete wall with rebar protruding from it.  A BB at T3 is just unable to influence the game.  At least with a DD I can reposition, sneak attack, or cap.

desmo, I've said this before, but part of me wishes that there was a WW1 version of WoWS where these ships were high tier ships and they were ships you wanted to play, rather than just in the low tiers where you just want to get through them to get to the mid and higher tiers.  I just don't play low tier stuff all that much any more.

I get that some people want ships like this as collector's items, and that's all cool.  But for me personally, I like ships that I want to actually play.  That's why it's hard for me to get all that excited about low tier stuff.

If someone has been around long enough, they'll know.

Image result for baited meme

KA was never going on sale again according to Pigeon of War, yet there it is. So its just a sarcastic poke at WG not doing what they said they'd do.
