West Virginia dropped in the shop today.

https://worldofwarships.com/en/news/deals/premium-shop-november-2018/

i vaguely remember the stir/controversy it caused.  Anyone know if it was buffed/nerfed from the test version or if this ship is worth getting?

Hoping the mouse review drops soon as well.

The problem with that controversy, as I saw it, is that the uproar over getting WV41 instead of WV44 totally eclipsed any discussion of how good or bad the ship was on her own merits. My big hope is that the carrier rework will allow WV44's anti-air suite to be put into the game in a way that is not brokenly OP, and then down the road they can give us West Virginia as a premium with A and B hulls in the one ship, similar to the complete reconstruction that the Furutaka gets with her C hull, and some sort of trade-in deal for people who already have WV41.

I'm afraid i'll take a pass on this version of the West Virginia ,WOWs should have done a better job of knowing what the customer base (in the USA) wanted , on the other hand i'm glad that WOWs listened to the players and will come out with the late war version in the future and nice touch with the Cmdr. Dusty Rodes added as well .

Glad to see her for sell! I must be one of the few who prefers the early California class fit with the two mass/pole towers and simplistic look that most American BBs had at the time.

So who is this rodes character?

He seems to be a combination of John Wayne and Phil Hartman , so maybe a tough funny guy.

As a native WVian and WVU grad, I feel obligated to buy, rofl. 

Moved away from WV over 21 years ago, but it's in my heart still.

I kinda doubt the wrestler Dusty Rhodes is who WG had in mind when they named the USS WV captain, Dust Rodes. But I could be wrong.

Dusty Rhodes was a lot of fun to watch, and even more fun to listen to his banter. If the captain Dusty Rodes is as comical as Rhodes, it will be fun.

Another new ship?  I already have more ships than I can reasonably play on a regular basis.  And there's something to be said for focusing on just a few ships and mastering them, rather than constantly hopping from one to the next.

there was a Blue Angel Pilot named Dusty Rhodes.  But he doesn't look much Like the WG version of the new WV captain.

There was also an L.A. disc jockey named Dusty Rhodes, but she didn't look anything like the new in-game commander.

Does the "special" captain do anything special? Or is it basically just a meme decal for your port?

Seems like everything game based on WV has been a flop lately....Fallout 76 and now WV 41. 

Lets just...yeah...end the year quietly.

I hear it was a good ship before they nerfed the hell out of it. Now it's slow and inaccurate with no good qualities other than 16" guns which don't matter if they don't hit anything.

So basically it's everything wrong with the Standards in-game turned up to 11 with a real money price tag on it. Amazing. Other than the ability to lolpen stuff, what's the point? How the hell did they manage to given it worse AA than the Arizona?

 

I'll save my coupon for Wichita or Alaska.

His special skill is that no one knows who he's supposed to be.  Aside from that -- nope -- no turret traverse speed boost -- or time reduction bonus for switching from AP to HE or vice versa.
