I am almost tempted to get the Krasny Krym for $7.99 to make sure I don't get it in a future Christmas box or other drop.

You know the first ship that will be dropped in a X-mas crate will be KK - so creative avoidance by minimizing the cost may be a viable strategy...

Yes, I was very stupid and when I got a ship I didn't want I sold it.  So, I ended up getting several ships twice!  I just wanted to scream!  :cap_horn:

 

I just went and bought the KK and the Yubari.

Yeah, it works, I did that before the Christmas crates last year. I purchased some of the less expensive ships when they were on sale.  The 99 cent sale was great for this.

By far the most pitiful summer "sale" I've seen. Literally just WG unashamedly pushing their most garbage premiums on sale or in bundles.

I got 3 Krasny krym's and 4 Monaghan's from 2018 christmas crates, it seriously pissed me off. It's like it chose the cheapest ships to limit my doubloon payout. (i had every ship possible to get)

So you're going to spend an extra $2.99 to prevent getting something in a $5 Santa Crate.

OoohKaay... Doesn't make sense to me but what ever floats your boat.

I am completely lost by this $7.99 Krazy Krem...... Are they paying me $7.99?

 

I think it is a fair deal if I am being paid $7.99 to have Krispy Kreme take up a Port Slot....Do I 

1. Have to put a Captain on her?

2.  Do I have to play her? If so how many times?

3. $7.99 is that cash or credit for a future purchase?

4.  When can I sell her for credits? 

 

Are there any planned Krespy Krem events?    Perhaps...

1.  Camo your Kremo -  Best looking Camo!

2.  Nothing but Krem ---- Events where you must bring Kraspy Kreme...

3. Operations where you can only bring Krispy Creme (Sorry running out of nick names)

It may sound like false economy, but what he's doing is locking out what some would see as the worst possible choice and forcing the selector algorithms to give him something of far greater value (if it issues him a ship at all).

I can see that being worth the extra money to some people. And in the meantime, who knows? If he's got a suitable captain for it (and the Russian gunboat captains can be quite suitable if you go the full BFT, AFT, yada yada all guns all the time build), it might be just the thing to lay down the hurt in co-op and maybe even in Randoms. He might actually enjoy it.

I'm highly tempted to get it myself, but that's because I have a Russian DD captain that's working towards such a build who ironically used to captain my Svietlana. He'd be perfect to stick in the KK for a bit of co-op fun.

Promo tie-in with Krispy Kreme doughnuts. Buy a box of so many, get a code for an alternative permacamo that is doughnut-themed. :Smile_hiding: To make it more desirable, add in a captain or free XP bonus to differentiate it from the usual one.

Maybe they could cut a deal with the Simpsons franchise and get Homer as the captain? They could use the voice work too - Doh! It would go with the doughnut camo.

Run aground? D'oh!

Torped a team-mate? D'oh!

Went broadside to a BB and got dev-struck or detonated? D'oh!
