I saw that the Bourgogne is planned to be a T10 premium and I'm not sure how I feel about that.

T9 free xp only was borderline but whatever. T10 though? I don't know if I'm OK with that.

What are you're thoughts?

We have no idea what the plans are for that ship. Also, the Salem is, by all accounts, hot garbage compared to Des Moines. 

Oh the Arsenal ones, I guess I never really looked into them because I hadn't played for a bit.

As long as they are something the average player has a chance at, and a truly realistic chance, I am fine with it. Coal for Salem was fine. FXP is fine ( 750K for a T9 then make T10 1 Million). Steel for Stalingrad however is not ok and was a mistake by WG as it effectively bars a very large portion of the player base from ever getting it. Don't gate ships behind game modes and resources that only a few play and can earn. 

I am hoping the new T10 Super Alsace will be coal or FXP so I can get it. Would love it. If it is steel I will never be able to.

No and was not ok with any of the other T9 and T10 premiums. 

There are better ideas for making reward ships than OP super premiums.

tier 10 premiums at wows are different rom wot tier10 prems for example.

in wot,only the select few can get tier10 prem tanks,here the average peasant can get a salem,stalingrad was a mistake.

ironic,the ship require good skills to obtain butyou don't need a brain to use one.

I agree with this I suppose. 

 

Clan rewards don't make want to play clan battles more, they make me want to play the game less. 

Luckily none of the rewards have been something that I actually want.

Only by some accounts.  It has quite a few positives - a Des Moines that can push a bit due to the monster heal, for instance.

I think Stalingrad for steel was a blatant bribe to get players to play Ranked and Clan Wars, two modes which have been losing player participation numbers and continue to do so with each new event. Sort of a "If you want this ship you have to play these matches or you can't get them" thing, as trying to get a Stalingrad with just dumb luck from drawing containers, while possible, is highly improbable. And FYI @AdmiralThunder, I agree that this was a serious mistake on the part of WG and WoW and should be corrected ASAP.

Stalingrad is a CB ship available for steel, and Salem is a coal ship. Both tier 10s

 

As for borgogne, I'm hyped. I don't care if it's a tier 10 Alsace or if its crap... I'm buying!

There are people who only care about ships from their competitive and/or gameplay aspects...and then there are others who just want to drive ship X or Y, and, of course, all the others as well!

Well, just had an Arms Race match where @Notser was driving one.  He died.  Don't know if he pulled a Notser in that one though.

from what i could see,arms race is about being agressive and getting buffs. maybe he wasn't agressive enough?

Well, a full salvo of AP from two BB's into his broadside probably didn't help.

From what I have seen, the buff circles are killing zones, and the trick is to herd the opposing team into them and let the slaughter commence.

I still remember when they killed off Borgnine's character.  I was very sad.

You remember when there were no Premiums past Tier VIII?

Then Tier IX Missouri and Black arrived.

Then Tier IX Musashi.

Tier X Salem arrived and Stalingrad followed soon after.

Jean Bart is also on the way in Tier IX.

"Super Alsace" for Tier X pending.

 

Lord knows what else is in the works.

Weird, must have been some other ship with a name that rhymes with Salem that was described by a few folks as a trade off between slightly worse radar and much better heal....

Well, @thebigblue, some people describe any ship that is 2% less in their 'important categories' as 'trash'.  Standard min-max/FOTM talk.  If it's not #1, it's trash.

So, I'm glad to hear that Salem is drivable, at least. :D

Yes! I will now refer to the Bonjovi as Borgnine. Well done.
