As others said, it was gift for beta testing. It hasn't been available since and probably won't be. It's a decent ship.

You can’t acquire her, unfortunately. I hear that the Wyoming is similar, if nothing else.

Sure, timetravel back to the time when the game was CB and hope for an invite. 

Reward ships seems to be hard to understand.

Very similar until you get to the Upgrades. You get access to all the Upgrade slots, including the ones for Tier IX+.

The Wyoming got some nerfes before she went live, the Ark Beta still kept her original stats.

Decent ship? T4 with T9 modules, longest main battery range at T4 and a spotting range less then most cruisers at that level. Plus best secondary range.

LWM review is a bit outdated since they buffed the boat since then.

It's been buffed not so long ago... better secondaries.  And in the tier it's at it makes a good difference when properly built.
Imagine if Mikasa had her secondaries buffed by 1.5km base range?  that's the kind of buff we're talking about.
It's a very solid ship if only expensive to equip because of her 6 slots (which more low-tier premiums should have).

Unfortunately as far as availability goes, it's never was offered except that one time at the end of the CBT period, as long as you had I believe 250 or 300 total battles
Sucks not being able to complete a collection... I hope that it get's offered sometime in the future, I would not mind as an owner of one.

It will be unavailable to the masses for a very long time... at least it should be. Same with Iwaki Alpha.

Depends on the version. They will not release the CBT ship, she is too much of a seal clubber. The only premium ship that's worse, is the Imperator Nikolai, because of the layout of her main battery and the better sigma.

50 matches.  I did 52 or 53 matches in closed beta and received Arkansas Beta.  It was not an announced reward though, so none of us in closed beta had any idea that playing 50 matches would get us a reward ship.  It was given out after the closed beta was finished.

A downside ... at her tier you can see a lot of CVs ... and she has NO AA.  Played her this weekend as a Maskarado ... do not miss not having her.

Wasn't she announced about a week before the Beta ended?

Not as I recall.  At least not the criteria.  I remember being kinda surprised when I got her.

The blacks tho... it angers me a lot that WG simply not just make/sell a black perma-camo for a decent doubloon price.  I don't want to spend another 80CAD just for the camo version.
It's so frustrating.

As for the ARP ships, they aren't real premiums...  No economy buffs on them really sucks, I would want WG to make them full fledged premiums, as I am pretty fond of their camo schemes.

Reward ship that trades having AA and Wyoming's upgrades to the hull for extra modernization slots. Had to be a Beta tester.

Some of us having been pulling and saying they should make a non-beta version of the ship but nothing so far. Then again there's a bit of a divide as some owners and none owners feel it should stay an exclusive award (unlike the case with Alabama). Then you have the opposite camp of owners like me and none owners that want a version that is still Arkansas - just drop the Beta tag from it - just like what went on with Bama ST. I still get a tag that shows it's cause I tested it and even then they could strip my Beta title from it and just give me a Camo on that and Iwaki Alpha that is unique to Alpha/Beta testers and is maybe slightly more enhanced than normal perma camo's (like maybe extra captain xp or whatever).

Sorry, but they only give this ship to a special group of players. The rest of you can drool over it. 

 

BTW some beta testers actually sold their ark B for a port slot. Well it's thier lost.

It might get the mutant treatment at some point you just have to wait and see.
