It's not about money and it's not about if people use it or not.  I am sure some people really don't care that they own it.  To others though, they enjoy having it and taking it out once in a while simply because it is "special".  Whatever, it's theirs, they can do whatever they want with it.

The people who helped test beta were told "never again", not "for a while" or "until later".  Never and exclusive are words that have a meaning.  They mean never and exclusive.  It's not about others wants.

I don't know why you seem to think that promises should be broken in life simply because time passes, but that is not the case.  There are many things that I want, but I simply cannot have.  Me wanting them doesn't change that.  Just the way the world works and it isn't a huge deal.

And WG has never said one thing one day and it not change later?  And is Missouri still in the shop for 750,000 free xp after it being assured to players it would always be there?  

crap changes, you should realize that by now especially with this game.

Neat, I just tested the secondaries against some DDs that got too close and was nice seeing a big chunk of health get taken away.

These ships have been in their ports for much, much longer than most of the ships that are currently in the game.  They were among the very first.  I have no reason to believe that WG will suddenly go back on their promise now or in the future.

Yeah, she has 0 defense against air attack, she just has to sit there and take it.  Her secondaries though, are brutal if you can get them close enough.

In any case.Arkansas Beta and Iwaki Alpha will not ever be available again to anyone else.

However that isn't saying an Arkansas or Iwaki might make an appearance at some point (or maybe sister ships).  But the Beta and Alpha designation of the ships will never be given to others. (I tried to get into the alpha but no dice)

Kind of ironic that nobody wants the  Alpha ship, only wants the Ark B because it’s a good seal clubbing ship.

Really the best way to deal with CV is to stick close to other ships with AA, the secondaries will shred any ships that get too close.

It's a T4 with no AA in a meta that just became all about the CV.  T4s do not sell for much to begin with and there would be little interest.

It's value is more in it's rarity than it's performance.  If everyone has it, not many will want it. There is no upside for them in that situation. The chances of WG ticking off the people who tested the product for free, to make very meager profits, after years of keeping their promise, are basically 0. 

It's a neat BB but you are not missing out on some unbalanced monster.

I have the Cobra MkIV in Elite: Dangerous that they gave to the financial backers or alpha players, I forget which it was.  It's the same, nothing super special.  In fact it's pretty well known to be a crap space ship in that game. Just a unique thing as a "thank you".

Think of it this way, you have a piece of intellectual property that won’t cost you a penny to develop you can offer to your player base that would like to have it for say $7.99.  Even sales considered only fair would bring in a ton of money for your company you are letting go to waste.  

It’s a simple business decision on WG’s part, if they wanted to go there.

Aye, but again, they told the beta testers, that it was their "reward" for their time in helping to test the game and will never be offered again.  Is just what they decided. 

I am going to log into the testing server right now to check that I have done the required games so far, toward getting my whopping one day of premium and some signals for helping to test 8.2.  That is my "reward" for that, just the same.

Yup, not our fault you didn’t sign up when they beta tested the game allowing us such a fine ship that the rest of you lot can’t get.

And again, they said Missouri would be a free xp ship from then on and would always remain in the ship for 750,000 free xp.  Things change.
