Is the annual Black Friday sale usually just for stuff in the Premium Shop or do things like coal ships go on sale in the Armory too?

For the past two years, it's been Black Friday crates in the Premium Shop, which have a chance to drop "B" versions of existing premium ships, like Tirpitz B. They're painted black, count as a different ship, but are otherwise identical to the non-B versions.

They are also discounted pretty nicely. I picked up an asashio b 2 years ago for about 20-25 bucks if I remember correctly. I think it's like 30% off. Also last year they had special 11pt b commanders too. You can grab them for doubloons in the armory or for cash in the prem shop. But they dont just do a wholesale discount on ships.

First year was just black friday crates for reskinned version of premiums. 

Second year they introduce some extra goodies you can buy in the armory such a patches, captains and flags. My avatar and patch are the Graf Zeppelin ones. I use the flag on some of my ships.

Are you sure? I'm pretty sure 2 years ago you could only get a ship by buying the crates. Am I mistaken?

Yeah, but he said 2 years ago, and that's when I got mine... through a crate, which I think was the only way they were available in 2018

Thanks for the replies.

I'm close to having enough coal for a T9 or T10 and was wondering if I should hold off till next month.

Oh, then yeah. BF 2018, you could only get the ships in crates.

Everything cost doubloons and money the last few years, so maybe hold onto it if you think it will change this year?

The only discount WG has ever given thus far for coal/steel ships has be the biannual coupons. I'm not saying that they won't do a discount (It's actually a pretty decent idea), but there's no precedent for it at the moment.

The -B ships tend to be pretty decent ones.  Scharnhorst, Atago, Massachusetts, ALASKA.  Wonder what the next -B ships will be.

Yea I remember because I decided I would just get it. I know it was only for like 3 or 4 days. There was a countdown. It was the first premium I ever bought outright.

I wish it would be the Jean bart b but I know that's dreaming. My bet is georgia or agir, maybe bagatration and orkan? Would be fun if someone started a betting pool :Smile_coin:

That's some hefty dreaming imagining JB-B coming :Smile_trollface:

 

Georgia-B would be a safe bet for a Battleship.  It'd sell pretty good, I bet.

For Cruiser, my bet is Mainz-B.

For Destroyer, I'd go with something odd:  Le Terrible-B.

Imagine the flood of money should they release Smolensk B and Jean Bart B. I mean, I really don't like pouring more money into WG, but then again...

Georgia B might be an option. Also I think there were more B options for straight up buying compared to what you could get in the boxes last year, so that might be something to consider.

JB-B, Smolensk-B, Musashi-B, Missouri-B. I bet they could price the crates at $50 and they'd still sell.

It would make a lot of sense (and $$$ for WG) if they allowed players to buy two or three copies of tech tree ships. That would be an an excellent way to have different ship/capt builds.

The only thing I've really looked out for was premium time, got enough just now to see out my interest in this game I think (over 600 days), the B ships are really not much of a carrot for me.

It will be 4-6 ships with black paint, using aloot box mechanic. Odds are not bad usually, but Christmas is soon afterwards and offers a better value for your money.

No, I'm pretty sure they'll also sell them outright. Certainly last year's new-release ships went out for money as well as in boxes.

I didn't buy any of last year's because I already had Sims and Scharn, didn't want Alaska (also, too much money for a ship I could easily get with FXP), and didn't see the need for Graf Zep.  I did, however, succumb to curiosity and buy the Asashio B at a substantial discount. Considering picking up the Atago B this year if the price is right, unless they offer something else I badly want (Kaga B please, WG?).

For this year my money is on,

  • Azuma B
  • Cossack B
  • Gascogne B
  • Kaga B

Because the trend from the last two years were one of each class, two popular ships and two unpopular ships.
