Previously I used Special ship filter to find my T10 Special ships and today with 0.9.3 I couldn't find Smolensk.  Turns out it's now a Premium T10.  Haven't tried to see if it makes more credit.  Rest of the T10 Special ships remained no change.

Interesting. I kind of hope its false and a UI whoopsie (seeing this is a WG title its very possible) but I also know WG, so they would be the only company insane enough to do this: Remove one of the worst ships they've ever added to the game, then make it a premium that makes more credits than other T10 premiums, then have it return in the premium shop, I see it now.

It's a fantastic money making opportunity, for sure.

Before this change, the Smol's camo actually did mention that it earns additional credits. It's the only ship in the game I have that has camo which actually says that. It's tier 10 though, so the cost will be higher as well of course.

All tier 10 permacamos have that.

mmh, was curious about this as well.

i dont think they will sell smolensk (to much trouble for what its worth) but i could totally see them moving it into the research bureau. but thats just a guess.

Oh boy, things just get better. If Smolensk has better credit earning now, will be playing this ship much more often. 

 

Though this could be a UI/update error, i wouldnt be surprised by this. On the other side, WG is crazy enough to do something like this. This would also make Smolesnsk more valuable in Santa crates.

Doesn't making this a PREMIUM means that it will never be nerfed?  No matter how small of a nerf?

Premium ships have baked in credit multipliers independent from the reduced running costs provided by the camo. This is what op is discussing and is extremely interesting if true.

Yes. I guess this is WG's way of saying it's never going to change so stop complaining about it.

No.

It just means it is highly unlikely to be nerfed.

WG has individually nerfed premiums in the past...on VERY rare occasions.

It's probably just a visual bug or glitch. I think WG are fed up of seeing so many Smolensks in battles, and I highly doubt they'd incentivize people into playing a single Tier 10 ship over and over due to it having cray cray credit multipliers.

WG announced premiums will NOT be nerfed, after the Giulio Cesare fiasco

...and yet, WG has individually nerfed a premium post the GC debacle.

0.8.4 changed GZ dive bomber attack parameters ensuring more over penetrations. This was not part of a global change.

They nerfed prem CV. That door was opens all ready and never to be closed.

Yes, you might be happy about that but once open it will be opened again and agian.
