Gotta go back and read the reviews first. If I remember correctly, despite its historical significance, in game this boat was not well received and is generally regarded as a garbage scow. I did rebuy Scharn and would love to get an Atago.

You had to “rebuy” the Sharny?

Maybe 50% off the 'Bama worths.

As Flamu stated once, there is no reason to choose her over the NC.

Be warned.

 

Cheers.

Would you really like to have to explain every step involved in a tequila decision involving selling your Scharn to the support people? It would seriously be less painful to just buy it again like @thebigblue did.

Ha. No problem. I am sure lots of ships are bought when players are "impaired". But at least you got a good one. She IS seeing tier 8-9 a lot more now however but she does have the tools to deal with that if you play her right.

Yeah, the Hood doesn't seem like one of the better ships.  I've not been paying attention to all of the ships but the ones I've seen so far have all been T7 so I don't the odds of the Atago coming up on this sale are good.  Anyone know if there were any other tier ships on sale?

If they are all going to be T7 I think the Blys is one I might be willing to grab if available.

Hood is good if the player know how to do things like angle and not overextend, but also not camp at max range.  Using her advantages (speed, health, armor profile and turret angles) she can be quite strong.  Used to her weaknesses (firepower, static play, not so much.

A sigma buff to 2.0 would be a nice, but relatively minor, improvement to how comfortable she is to play.  Historically Hood was known to be a very stable firing platform.

Flamu was wrong.   Alabama is much better than the NC.

But even Alabama is obsolete now with Massachusetts.

Alabama has earnings capabilities that are unmatched by tech tree ships, and she is within a couple of percent of the North Carolina's combat capacity. For crew, free xp, and credit grinding, Alabama is vastly superior.

All these 50% off ships are making me feel like a chump for stumping up top dollar for them on release.

Might not buy premiums for the next year, and only buy them during this sale.

Good marketing WG.

If you want the new toys first, you gotta pay. Nothing wrong with WG selling them that way or you buying them that way. I went in for Massachusetts on day one, but if they sell it now for 50% off, I'm not going to feel bad. I've gotten to enjoy the ship up to this point, so, money well spent.

I've been waiting for Hood to go on sale for a while now. I got Sharnhorst first. Just grabbed Hood a couple of hours ago. The guns need some getting used to, but I like her so far.

Support allows up to 5 reversals of ships you sold, they will put the ship back into your port and take the credit value of the ship from your account.

Maybe I need to make her some margaritas? :Smile_bajan2:

If I buy Hood will she have her historical gray camo included?

well, yes and no.
When you buy the hood,  you'll get camo but it'll be random patches of dark grey but a simple change to the como files will make her more historical.

Thank you for your comment, but I note the following NA-based statistics comparing various Tier VIII BBs. Please note that the Alabama exceeds the NC in win rate, damage per game, and XP. Flamu also specifically recommended this ship in one of his "Best Premium" videos.
