Remember the days when WG made premiums below tier 9?

It was a much happier, simpler time. People still played the game, aa meant something, there was more fun and less grinding. Ranked and CB were separated by a month or 2 at a time. And we looked forward to historic ships across all tiers. And we could actually purchase those ships instead of grinding endlessly for them or buying loot boxes with a chance of obtaining those ships. 

Ahhh... The good Ole days. A time of naivety and obliviousness. When no one knew what sigma meant. People were able to use ifhe on their DM or SE on their battleships without fear of being judged. Players could play their Belfast and kamikaze without remorse. Ahhh, I miss those times.

WG is still making premiums below Tier 8. In fact, not only did it recently make two Tier 5 destroyers the directive prizes in events, but both of them were actually present in the Premium Shop from the start of the event.

Funny about that.

Yes I do remember and also know that they are still doing so.

So what is your point?

The event that is going on right now gives us a T5 premium DD.  Everyone that is doing the event, just got it a few days ago or is still working on it.

Just before that, we got the Hill, also a T5 premium.

A bit ago, we got the Lazo, a T7 premium.

People still don't know what sigma means.   They think it tells you everything you need to know about ship's accuracy.  They don't realize that the biggest impact to accuracy is dispersion, and sigma deals with the spread of outliers.  All things being equal, you're better off with a buff to dispersion than a buff to sigma.

I think what OP meant was remember when premium ships were only T8 and down, T9s were rare (like Missouri) and T10s were clan battle rewards? Now, we have 2 or three every patch cycle for some currency, and usually in the shop as a package for a ridiculous amount of money.

I agree, I WG would go back to regular T8s, with the occasional T9 and T10 (and by occasional I mean like one or 2 a year). T9 special premiums lose the special thing when they're all that WG makes.

OP, I see you've changed the title of your post, from Tier 8 to Tier 9.

The problem is they don't normalize the Dispersion stats so you can compare different ships. If one ship has a dispersion number for 20km and other for 25km, how can you determine which has lower dispersion at 20km, or 15 km?

It's hard to select numbers with the trackball.

Yeah, I remember that nostalgia too - when trying to win a premium ship meant going up against people who'd been in the game for two years already and getting the living :etc_swear: kicked out of me. I prefer things the way they are now, thank you; there's a lot more available to the newer player who doesn't want to move up from Tier 4 and get slaughtered by ships two tiers higher, driven by four-year veterans.

Not counting WiP / Testing stuff right now.   Just stuff that was actually pushed out Live.  There's a lot of stuff in the works and they can be in that state for a long time.  T-61 was a WiP ship for ages until everyone forgot she existed, then BAM!  She was on sale.

I just got some new low tier premiums because of the past few events. I like them a lot, perhaps you could look at a list of premium ship releases in order to see if there is more data to support you.

Tier 3 Dreadnought and Charleston.

Both were limited releases in 2018 (for a Dailies grind and as a sign-on bonus respectively), but 2019 is when they were both released for general sale (Dreadnought for money, Charleston for coal).
