1. The very first freemium is Arkansas Beta. Yes, @Umikami thanks for letting me know.

2. I love the Black Friday Black Ships.

3. I think Mikasa is tier 2.

4. I think the Konig Albert isn't OP.

5. I think subs were once playable.

All facts are true to the best of my knowledge. I did not mention the ship in question for facts 2, 3, and 5. Brownie points for those who will!

Want your #shipfact featured? DM me! If posted, you will be credited.

4. Ships removed for direct purchase for "excessive combat efficiency" have been returned without rebalancing. Case in point: The German Konig Albert. Anyone have hope for the return of Mikhail Kutuzov or Belfast?

 

Iirc my understanding is that Konig Albert was only removed on NA for a time, and not the other servers. So in a sense it never 'returned without rebalancing', as it never left the other servers in the first place and NA was an isolated case.

So, NA are better battleship drivers?

Who knew?

Do you think this would make  #4 false? I don't think so because it was announced on stream it would go away because it was OP (my understanding). And though it did go away for a time, it came back.

1. The very first freemium is the humble Albany. Back in August 2015, it was redeemable via a code freely distributed on the WoWS news site. Who remembers?

I do!  Still have it, too.

The Albany has been buffed significantly since its intro.  Boy, did it need it.

Honestly, thats probably the only one that I could have remembered. Plus it helps when you gave me the phrase.

I can't get it out of my memory. And it's been 2 years. :Smile_sad: As you can see, no Google involved for the facts.

Though at least one of those buffs was compensation for when AFT stopped affecting 152mm guns.

Anyone else remember that???

Pepperidge Farms remembers...

It's embarrassing to be embarrassed when you are trying to embarrass someone else.

Let me clarify for you. Oleg is not a Soviet counterpart of Mikasa. The Soviet counterpart exists in-game but was never released for testing. I will not disclose the name. I will only verify player guesses.

However, Oleg is the "Gunslinger in Black" mentioned in ShipFact #2.
