Kind of glad they gave us a one of a kind BB for a beta ship, instead of a CL which nobody cares.

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

No going to happen, mutant 6 is a pre order tank which they change the purchase policy so people can buy it after launch. Much different from a reward tank/ship.

Eh, it's honestly nothing special save for the upgrade slots. It's basically the health of an upgraded Wyoming but with literally zero AA capability. Any semi-competent carrier will focus you first since they know there is literally nothing you can do to fight back.

It's a lot more likely than the mutant BECAUSE it's a free reward, rather than something that was sold for real money with a promise of exclusivity. I was a big proponent of selling a different version of the mutant, but not taking away the exclusivity from those that bought it on preorder.

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.

I  have almost exact same WR/damage/kills on my Nikolai and Ark Beta. But I kinda suck with Nikolai though.

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.

Yeah, it was fifty. And, if memory serves, they did announce it in the site news.

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

There was A LOT of negativity when people found out what they'll get as a reward, "making us spend six+ million to make this 'reward' be only slightly worse than tech tree Wyoming is messed up", that sort of thing. WoWS never changes.

The funny thing about Arkansas Beta is how often the opposing team also has an Arkansas Beta on it when I take it out.  Rarely see them otherwise, but if I take mine out, presto, another Ark B.

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

Yes, it was.  I had to play a few more games to make the cutoff.

Is they any way i can gett it??

Nope. It's a Beta Test reward, the special thing about it is that only Beta testers get it. If they gave it to others, it wouldn't be unique.

However, if you must have it, the closest thing is the stock Wyoming. The back director isn't there, so you can shoot 4 turrets (IIRC) over the stern just like the ArkB. You have no AA, just like the ArkB. You don't have T9 module slots, but nothing you can do there.

And that is the main point it's not being sold. So you can never purchase it.

As others have said it was a gift to beta testers. I wish I'd heard of WoW when it was in beta. Would love to own that ship.

Well after seeing this thread I figured hey I own a beta ive not used it in about 6 months lets take it out for a spin and see what it can do... Well it speaks for itself even with the cv changes it can handle itself quite well. Shame I didn't record the battle but thats life. Thanks OP for giving me something to do this evening :Smile_smile:

For those of us that own her, don't forget about her secondaries.  Fun build.  They are short range, but if you get into range...many players just don't know what's coming :).

Short answer. No you can't get her, and it should be that way. 

As far as how good she is. She's awesome. She has: same number of upgrade slots as a Tier 10, nice secondaries, if optimized properly, she can be pretty accurate with her guns (for a tier 4), she has no AA but that's okay, at this tier it's doubtful your AA on any ship will help you that much.

My point is that it would be more ethically acceptable to sell a ship that was given away for free than it was to  put an "exclusive limited time only" tank that was bought with real money back on the market. 

I can walk around handing out free coasters on the street, telling people they are special for owning it. That does not put me under any obligation whatsoever to never sell the same coaster. OTOH, if people were buying the coasters because of their exclusivity, it would be bad business and unethical to dilute the exclusivity by selling more.

In continuation for clarification: I don't give one single iota if they sell it. I have more premium ships than I can play in a day, and rarely play low tiers anymore.

Not going to happen as well, its a reward ship. They never sold any of the reward tanks in WOT expect China but that's due to a different company.

Its a nice ship.

Got an 8 kill Kraken on her long time ago, but now that CVs are populating tier 4, its not really fun to play.

It's like having a classic car, you enjoy having a ride every now and then

Fun Arkansas B Fact:  AA rating 0.

Fortunately most don't even know what this ship is so CV players don't target her. Thankfully.

While it's not Wyoming Class, perhaps one day you will get the Florida or Utah instead, Utah can be in her Pearl Harbor hull that can fit in with Arizona and West Virginia. As for Arkansas, I doubt she'd ever be for sale, gifted, or earned through missions, she is a USN Nikolai.

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.

Pretty much every tier 3/4 game now has two CVs per team - it's inescapable.
