Hi

Ok so the last time someone wrote a post about this ship a number of people said it was for new players as a  " welcome to the game " type gift.

Well that fine have no problem with that however some of us here are collectors of ships and just so happens I like the St Louis class, I also like Charleston's cool looking camo, so how about it WG are you going to sell this ship.

My wallets waiting

regards

Only way to get the Charleston is as a 'welcome to the game' gift for new players. Maybe they'll make it available to OG old skoolers like us, but maybe not. As of yet, there's no way for us to get it.

I'm certain it will be available at some point in the future.  Former restricted ships like Albany and Katori became available after some time.  They'll just likely keep it exclusive to new players for a bit.

So in other words, WG has painted a target on the back of the baby seals, with the occasional reroll cropping up as well? Great.

Brand new players would still be in protected MM at T3 until they get more battles or play their first T5 battle iirc. And really how many people would reroll just to use the Charleston a ton?

You're still flagging noobs, though, in relative terms. You're telling people "This person started playing AFTER the Charleston was introduced."

Start a Steam Account for WoWs! The ship is great! Bounce the St Louis Captain back and forth!

Thats probably why WG nerfed St. Louis and introduced Charleston. Gives new players an edge over seal clubbers and makes then want to play more.

Well atleast I can recognise a potato when I see that ship. It makes target picking a bit easier :Smile_trollface:

Late last year and early this year, we had short mission chains to win a T3 premium. My guess is Charleston will make her appearance in January or February sometime, probably while I am on holidays and can't get her. :Smile_trollface:

Its pretty much [edited] that wg doesnt give players the ability to at least get ships like this through missions...there is no reason for it other than milking us for more money.

I created an account on Steam and it only took me 18 battles to get out of protected match making. The scary thing is that during the protected matchmaking often I was the only live person on the team with 11 bots. The other team had 1 live person and 11 bots. It makes me fear for the long term survival of the game if they are attracting so few new players.

Well as you noted, a new player leaves protected very quickly also some will play more coop, time of day etc. Population overall has been very stable since release for our server with a little growth. More growth would be better but at the moment we are not on a decline.
