HMAS Vampire is one of two Australian ships in the game and she's currently locked away in the Recruiting Station. To make matters worse, it's in the highest tier crate which would take a while to get by normal means. You're not even guaranteed Vampire if you do manage to get these crates!

 

Please, for the love of everything good in this world, bring back Vampire. I'm not the only Australian who wants her.

It would be great if there was a system through which we could buy, sell, trade or gift between players.

I have Vampire, earned in game quite a ways back, and I'm certainly not married to her. Would be happy to barter.

Meanwhile the one I'm after is Gremyaschy, but there's no straightforward way to acquire that ship.

And I've always been intrigued by Iwaki A, but alas she's just a pipe dream.

Gremyashchy was deemed to be OP and removed from sales; Iwaki Alpha was an Alpha Tester reward ship and was never for sale, and rightly so.

Yes, I'm aware of that. It's pretty much the reason why I wanted it!

Indeed, I knew that too. Every once in awhile I'll see one in game a feel some pixel envy.

I got the Gram this year and she does not disappoint.  Long range torpedoes for the tier, good guns and health.  

Turret traverse sucks but that is the only downside I can think of.  Concealment is on par with the Americans but not as good as IJN.

Congrats! Crate?

I had read that Grem was nerfed long ago but it still gives me a case of the wants.

My main gripe with Russki DDs is the limited torp range and Grem seems to have it all... guns, Stalinium and decent torps.

Enjoy.

Yep on the crate and spell check on my phone is not fun.  

 

The Grem is just a fun ship to play.  I was able to citadel cruisers at close range and the torpedoes are great for a Russian DD.

I would also like to have both, though my odds of getting Gremy from a crate are infinitely better than getting Iwaki through a time machine. Iwaki has some interesting gimmicks; it shares Yubari's targeting mod which makes it one of the most accurate ships in the game, and I think it kept it's smoke screen. Que sera, sera!

I'll trade you my Gremyaschy for your Vampire.

I am not sure if Vampire was even in Christmas boxes or not. 

It was not. With the exception of Imperator Nikolai, which is an exclusive ship, the Santa crates went as low as T5.

Any system where you could transfer assets between players would open the door to those Asian gold spam shops. Go to a website and buy a Vampire. That would be the result.

Which is why we don't transfer goods between players thank god

It was not.  Nothing below Tier V. (Except Nikolai, I've been corrected.)

I got it the first year they had Christmas crates :)

I haven't gotten anything good since, so I guess I spent all my luck the first year.

You've got a deal; if only there was a way to make it happen.
