careful for those buying the black Friday ships. the advertising is misleading : the missions to get the 2500 doubloons cannot be done with the actual ships available. rip off !

The missions for the 2500 doubloons must be completed in the normal non black ship - This is the same as the past 2 years - It was introduced to compensate for owning the regular ship and buying the black version.

Why would I buy a Kaga B if I already owned the Kaga!?!  YES!!!! It was very misleading!  I bought the Kaga B thinking...ohhh I don't know...that the mission included worked with THAT SHIP!   wth!

Before buying ANYTHING from WG, make sure you read carefully.  The description of that mission that came with your Kaga B is actually pretty clear...but I still see why people miss it.

I totally agreed!  VERY misleading!  WoW has sunk to a new low for me personally.

 

This is tarded---> I already own a Kaga so I will buy another one with a "B" just to get a mission. 

I can not say on here what I think of them, let me put it simply, I hope they have a [edited] 2021!

You mean missing that the mission did not have a "B" in the ship title, so very "clear" .

Same with ARP Yamato.  That ship is not Yamato.

I posted a Massachusetts B victory screenshot for the Massachusetts B giveaway.  I hope that doesn't get me disqualified because I really could use the doubloons.

You take the camo off of ARP Yamato, it still a ARP Yamato.  You take the camo off of Yamato, it still a Yamato.

It doesn't matter. The game is coded to treat the two ships as separate entities... and that's all that actually matters.

My ARP Takao and Atago are two different ships, but strip away their camo and they are identical.  Same with Fujin-Kamikaze-Kamikaze R.

It still doesn't change the fact that a mission that specifies Atago cannot be completed with ARP Takao.

Don't see why people keep saying this is a 'ripoff'.  You're getting a premium ship at a ~15% discount.  I have a few of the Black ships.  Bought the Assashio B because it was at a price is was okay with.  I just wanted to see if it was all I'd heard it was.  It's 'okay'.  But not one I play a lot.  I should probably drag it out again given all the Black Barts that are running around now.  

It does provide a lower cost way of getting a premium you want at a better price.  Though if they're available in the Armory, you'd do better with the coupon.

I left facebook, twitter and so on years ago for excessive shadowbanning and censoring due to my position in life. It also had a habit of creating and breaking family bonds built over a lifetime. So I left the social media alone for years. I don't know of anything that is worth enduring additional censoring and so forth in those dictatoral systems. Its a shame. I won one good black ship and plan on buying  afew more black ships anyway in a few days. So it's still a good event this year. I don't know why we are opening 18's and 19 boxes I would have preferred all 6 2020 boxes but cannot argue. There is more coming via doubleloons soon.

Essentially mixed feelings but mostly positive. Just need to be reading everything and be careful what you are doing this time around because the marketing talk is designed to try and extract income from you. Since I already spend like a whale X amount of dollars each month that is not a problem with WG or me. Just need to be careful. The Regular Atlanta, Alaska B and associated commanders, flags etc from the black side will help sort things nicely on my area while i Accululate the coal for the Georgia. I see the Ohio has been deleted or removed from the Armory so thats gone. It might be elsewhere.

 

My thoughts are my own. The experience of this blackfriday has been a litle different than the last two. particularly the 16k xp grind in the final mission for the 6 crates. It took me about 5 hours yesterday in the evening, an additional three after midnight nap and then from 7 am until 3PM today to finish it. Thats a good 15 hour invested to get 6 crates for that little bit of XP without flags etc. Talk about a grind. Falls right into 1000 xp base per hour give or take. Or 300 or so per game. I already know that Big Science fiction side of Wows is flat [edited] with hundreds of kills required to finish those missions for a couple of prizes. I dont mind a grind but not like that. I actually have a real life to live in between games.
