I purchase this ship just after launch when it’s tire 8 for the lol and the rage it gets in randoms only to have cry babies complain to WG that it’s OP and they removed it from the game and even removed the stats from the ship. :cap_viking: Good to see it’s back :Smile_sceptic:

Unlike the old days with radar ships all over the MM it’s hard to set up ambushes or hiding in smokes. Any ships will target it first once detected, probably still good at Co-op.

Oh yes, it will be a blast in coop, and for getting those missions that require a ton of torpedo hits.... for players who don't have Okhotnik, it will be welcome.

We will carefully watch how this unusual cruiser will prove herself in battle, and will implement the necessary changes to make playing her and against her interesting. Additionally, we understand there might be concerns about the ship dealing damage to allies, and we plan to take them into account when the ship will be released.

This is very, very, VERY interesting.

@Lord_Zath, you were talking just yesterday about this ship on your stream, I believe. Lo and behold, speak of the Devil and he appears! :Smile_veryhappy:

Even for players who DO have Okhotnik, it will be welcome. Note that these are Yuudachi torpedoes. I foresee TAE and Torpedo Acceleration as being mandatory "special" builds for this ship.

Interesting that they have pushed her up to Tier 10, where the prolificity of radar and hydro will keep her thoroughly in check. 

Cue screams of outrage if they make her for steel or RB points, but I foresee another 2 million FXP DD on the horizon. If she is for coal, expect her to be snapped up like crazy and then banned after a few months like Smolensk was.

We were joking on the streams when we said we wanted it back!

(To be honest I never saw it in action, only heard the stories)

Going pink isn’t a big deal if you win and co-op will cover that anyway,

Is this terrible for the game? Absolutely

Will this be cancerous to play against? Absolutely

Do I care? No, not really, this whole situation is kinda funny, really.

Next thing you know, we will be getting USS Arkansas and HIJMS Iwaki as premiums, with the "Beta" and "Alpha" suffixes removed to allow differentiation for those who got them in the appropriate phases of the game vs. those who are getting them "new". Contrast the Arpeggio ships; nobody can tell who got the originals and who got them when they were let out again this year.

Don’t think anyone will buy the tier 4 Arkansas since there is no AA to speak off, the other alpha tester ship on the other hand.......

I guess it's officially "empty the closet to see what we can find" time.  Glorious, simply glorious!

Except for the name Arkansas is no longer fun to play in CV plagued Tier in a NO AA ship.

Too bad.  A meme secondary build (with Tier IX mod!)  Arkansas is a lot of fun.

What does it matter any more?  AA doesn't do much nowadays.

Dont advertise, just release. Then sit back and laugh when people experience that wall for the first time. Reaction videos are a must.
