I don't care if it is overpriced.  I don't care that I could not use a coupon.  I don't care about the IFHE changes that nerfed it and Atlanta.  I don't care what the 21 point captain rework is going to do to her.  I just don't care about anything other than I finally got a ship I've wanted for months.

It will put a smile on your face in co-op for sure.  I also am looking forward to driving her in Narai.  

Woot!!! Woot!!!

Congrats.  I'll most likely be getting this ship too, but not until the coupon is available.  I think this ship will be hit too hard with the upcoming skill rework to justify splurging on it now.  Even with the coupon it will be a tough pill to swallow.

Do you care about having it's range locked at 11km?  I'd care. 

That would be 11.1 KM.  And nope.  :Smile_coin:

FYI in case you didn't know both Flint and Neustrashimy will be in this year's Santa crates. IF you have a ton of Premiums so you are more likely to get a rare ship it might be better to go that route and save the coal. I have everything that can drop other than possibly like 1-2 new Premiums I didn't buy this year so for me it will be better to go to the crates for Neustrashimy as rerolls will almost assure I get it if I get ship drops.

There was a post earlier today saying that Flint and Neuter aren't in the coupon pool. I didn't read it but you can look back a few posts and find it.

Yeah, that was what I was referring to.  These ships you won't be able to use a coupon until 0.10.0, the end of January.

I was saving up my little bit of Steel to get the Flint but at the last minute I had a coupon used it to get the Black (Don't judge me :Smile_hiding:) So when they mentioned it was coming out for Coal I grabbed it as soon as I could get on the server today.

I love that floating porcupine  and I sank 5 ships in its 1st game playing like a DD :cap_haloween:

Are you not appeased that it is priced some 70ish% higher than a T7 BB and can't be bought immediately with a coupon? WG claims this was done in honor of folks like you. Hmmmm.

Yes, I just bought Thunderer with a coupon. Flint is just shy of that price. I'll be waiting for the coupon price on Flint.

Since the Black and Neustrashimy are both t-9 destroyers, I would guess that the cost will be about the same.  If Black doesn't drop in the next patch, you might be able to use your coupon to get her immediately.

You would be better off going the Coal route for Flint or Neustrashimy as the chances of you getting a rare ship are pretty low. My chances are incredibly high as I have almost all the ships that can drop so it makes sense to go the crate route and save the Coal (even though I am almost to 1 Million on hand).

Have to ask, because I have no clue, what ship is Blaga?
