during that event, I had only been able to get 3 games in due to work, and I'm wondering sadly if there will be another opportunity to get this ship, as it seems the only way still available to me and other players is to pay $333.00 in my currency for the boxes. which is most defiantly not going to happen.

so does anyone know when there will be a chance to get this ship again?


-fingers crossed

There is nothing indicating that it wont be available again like Missouri, but I believe Radar himself said there are no immediate plans following the event.

I had missed two missions due to being stuck in the mud with ranked sprint. I had to fork over $6 to get the gold to buy one loot box to finish out the fuel tokens requirement.

I hope it is available in the future for the ones who missed it. It is a torpedo spamming machine. I really don't know why it wouldn't be available in the future. It's not a ATM like the MO. Not even a distant second like the Musashi. However it is fun. If you like torpedo boats. I liken it to  IJN torp boats but with less powerful, shorter ranged torpedos, meh guns and a little less concealment. I've found it useful for putting cap circles awash in fish. Most kills so far have been DD's who sit in a smoke cloud. Hard to dodge a wall of torpedos.

If it doesn't become available again, don't feel too bad.  It is a good boat, but that gnawing feeling of having missed it will eventually evaporate.  It took me a long time to get over missing the Kamikaze R by just two pearls, but I eventually did.  It was no doubt by WG's ongoing campaign of powercreeping legacy IJN destroyers into the ground, but still.

Yep, it will be available again, after WG creates demand through artificial scarcity.

I'm hoping for it to become a coal ship after 4 months or so so the earners can enjoy some exclusive time and the rest of us can get it later.

I couldn't get it because I went on vacation for a bit more than 2 weeks and it was TOO expensive to buy the missing tokens. I looks like an interesting ship and I hope it becomes available again some day.

thanks for all the comments guys, honestly, it's just sad it was such tight mission grind or fork over $333.oo CAD to obtain her.
if shes comes out for coal that would be cool, I myself am saving up my steel for more premium DD's, as I'm a DD main.

even if WG put her on the premium shop for say $40-$60 I'd buy happily :).

guess ill just have to wait and see what the outcome ends up being with her future release!

I sympathize amigo. I did quite a bit of grinding and in the end still had to cough up $21 American pesos to buy the prem crates needed to get her. What's worse is that aside from the tokens, the value of those crates were insulting, most of them had credits and nothing else worth a damn.

Well to be honest, it can print credits.... Just yesterday I had my first million credit game without any flags and it was in the Benham. 

I'm pretty potato, but I have also noted it seems to earn really well. The fish aren't very powerful, though, so you're not going to superman punch KO anyone any time soon, but... there's a lot of them.

While it sucks that you didn't get a chance to get this ship during the event ... I'll be honest, I'd rather there be LESS Benhams running around than more. That ship is absolute cancer and has reintroduced the extreme 'wall of skill' into the game where most BB players refuse to push or tank because of the continuous threat of *16* fast reloading torps.

Whoever in Wargaming thought releasing this ship as is was a good idea was clearly on heavy drugs. For all the gnashing of teeth over Ohio and Colbert, Benham is much much worse for the game.

@_BeachesProbably you are going to have to hope for a lucky Christmas crate to get the Benham.  I have not had enough time to play her, but had fun playing the Hill to earn the extra tokens, so I wouldn't have to buy many crates.  Good luck to you.

I would bet it will be in the Santa crate list.

^Same issue for me. I was on vacation and couldn't make up the missing missions.

Oh, I'd love to have her too for those times where I've had a really bad day at work and just wish to project my misery to the World of Warships server, one sinking battleship at a time.

Just IMHO, but I would think steel more likely - Benham is a ship that flips the meta right now as much as the Black can. People will grind for that.

i picked up the Kidd recently for clan battles, and im since been in love with the interesting style of gameplay. i like being able to get into a nice gunfight and have the option/ability to recover from my wounds afterward. 
AA is a serious beast no question about it !
