Love the story , The camo look very sharp,  I appreciate all that you make available to the community for just the effort of time...

The ships are also decent. Mostly .. 

 Bismark, Tirptiz and the T7 german BB's are unfairly punished by CV AP bombs with massive non repairable Cit hits over and over making what were once very enjoyable ships to play a complete dread when paired against CV's with AP bombs ... and every good CV captain knows this - they go out of their way to farm easy damage against these ships. 

compared to EVERY other battleship it is grossly massive and ludicrous damage with zero counter play - other than stay way back and ineffectively lob long range artillery  beside the CV for extra AA protection - but that is not what these BB's are about ! 

one of three things need to happen to help here:

1) The first and easiest to implement is to make a decent % of this damage repairable - at least then there is a chance of lasting more than the first 6-8 min in one of these matches...

2) Reduce AP damage to this class from CV AP bombs

3) Give these BB's thicker top citadel armor protection more similar to ALL other BB"s 

any of the above would make these ships more playable, but as is, what used to be my favorite ships are now some of my least played - it is NOT fun receiving non repairable 15k+ drops from every CV hit :(  - consider that even a Yamato cannot punish a well played Bismark that bad per volley. 

PLEASE fix this glaring problem - Make Bismark fun again !

Once again WG misses the mark (or completely ignores player requests). I already earned the Bismarck with three cammo's and don't play CV's. I'm not all that interested in the Cossack, either. What I've been asking for is meaningful missions for my Tier I-IV ships like my Mikasa, Diana, etc.

I realize low tier ships aren't money pits like tier VIII-X, but do you guys at corporate ALWAYS have to base every decision on how much cash you can milk out of the player base? Who am I kidding...

Nice story, tho I think the cat brought some serious bad luck to all those ships.  I think my cat is trying to comfort Sam after watching the video:

Let's fondly recall the old episode and find out how to obtain new permanent camouflages featuring the legendary cat.


Read it on the portal

I've completed the Adventures of Unsinkable Sam four-part series of challenges/directives/campaigns.

I was notified that I was issued a permanent Unsinkable Sam camouflage for Bismark.

I don't see it in my inventory.

Could WoWs double-check what is going on?  Is it named something different?

Silly me.

I decided to purchase the three ship package of the Unsinkable Sam collection.
I also found Sam roaming the decks of the Cossack.

Well, at least now I have the ships to mount the camouflage that I earned.
