What? What did I miss. Did something happen to the Smol?

It and Jean Bart are being removed from sale soon.

Oh, I thought Smol got an armor buff like WG added 457mm belt to the sides and bottom, fore and aft. Plating on the turrets of 457mm.

Riddle me this: when is a steel ship made of glass?

I am glad I never got the ship.

Holy buyer's remorse Batman!

I got the Smolensk and the Jean Bart. No regerts. My poor showing of a CA/CL captain is no reflection of the Smolensk. It's all me and my over the hill eyesight, diminished reflexes, mini map unawareness, and strategy challenged noggin lol.

It's being removed from sale, not the game. If you get it before the 2 month til 9.3 are up, you keep it.

That is an even worse idea. (If you get it before the 2 month til 9.3 are up, you keep it.)  So if you got the money you get to torment the Kurfurst forever.  Thanks.  My enthusiasm has subsided.

Ruins the game when three-four SM are in smoke or behind cover 20 miles away wailing on you.  There are so many in-game already.

Pick One.  Wrong or Right.

Smolensk isn’t and has never been available for cash - you can only obtain her through coal via the Armory.

I had a feeling it wasn't going to last long, to maintain he value you take it off the market before everyone has one. Santa crates anyone.

Yes, I was referring to the Smol glass exterior. It's really not what players expected when they got the ship, so I have heard in chat comments in battle.

It seemed to be a trending consensus that despite it's fire potential, its fragile nature is a terrible liability.

Some players can make the ship work, but I have only seen examples of players being as stealthy as possible and they tend to break contact from battle only to re-engage.

It's not a ship for everyone.

I kinda expected premiums of any kind to be removed from sale to make way for something new.

I will most likely get this ship from a container because it is not my play style.

Besides, whatever that is coming next I suspect will be very interesting and exciting.

At least for me it will 😉

Time to grind the last 41k coal I need for Balansk, before it joins the big Christmas crate in the sky, and becomes practically impossible to get.

I got JB already, and never cared for Smolly, lol. :fish_haloween:

Only thing that I think is good about today's news is that this would maybe allow Bourgone to be a Coal ship... someday... lel. :Smile_hiding:

Of course, it won't be for any time soon, but who knows, right? LUL. :Smile_hiding:

I was going for the Friesland and the Black, but Black will be gone before the coupon resets, and now I'm not sure if I want Friesland or Smaland first. I have a little over 700k free XP saved already.

Black will be back for Coal within six months according to a post on the WoWs Gamers Blog.

To Be Resource Converted:
Due to the different reasons, withing 6 months the following ships will no longer have Steel as their purchase resource, the new purchase resource will be as follows:
Neustrashimy Will be available for QazVyWp.pngCoal
Flint Will be available for QazVyWp.pngCoal
Black Will be available for QazVyWp.pngCoal
These ships no longer have much demand for steel purchase. and thus they won't be available a this resource much longer, but not earlier than in half a year they will return to the Armory, where they will be obtainable in exchange for Coal.

I saw that, but it doesn't make my free XP choice any easier.
