I really, really hope these bundles” with Canarias and Dido will either be reasonably obtainable and not subject to random chance, or it coincides with a direct purchase option. 
 

If they hide these two highly anticipated ships behind random chance as the only option for acquisition, I don’t think I’ll be alone in being pretty darn frustrated.

“A new temporary resource called Mediterranean Tokens, plus Coal. Navigate to a special tab in the Armory to exchange your Mediterranean Tokens for bundles with  VI Dido and  VI Canarias in their Atlantic camouflage, as well as other rewards.”

Well, now we know why Dido got clubbed so hard with the nerf bat. Looks like she’s going to obtainable for in-game currency, and given that’s it’s for the new currency and those will be obtained from Personal Challenges, she likely won’t be too difficult to obtain.

There was a lot of pushback last year regarding both the plan to re-release MO exclusively in random bundles and the release of Agincourt exclusively in Jutland containers. After both those debacles WG committed to avoid such releases locked behind random mechanics in the future. We’ll see if they meant what they said.

Anticipated release date?  Need to know when to have the GK researched by.  

All the super carrier/super ship nonsense is just comical to me.  Having recently come back to the game after a few years of being absent, how many currency times/monetization methods can wargaming shove down the player-base's throats?  Oh, and if all the previous weren't enough now we have SHIP-based currency on top of all that.

Jets used to be in the game a long time ago on the midway!

So CV's will have more incentive to seal club the most vulnerable ships?
That's going to go over like a fart in church.

Good to know that there are going to be annoying supercarriers now. 

Edit: But I'm actually excited too.

You heard it here first - I'm holding out for a hydrofoil gunboat with hypersonic missiles.

 

I am beginning to believe that if it ain't stupid, WG won't do it.

Why does the United States have an island? It lacking one was one of the main design elements, so it could use large-wing bombers before they figured out the angled flight deck.

Super carriers! Are these people still that much out of touch with their playerbase that they think the majority actually want overpowered CV's in the game....again? The more this sorta thing goes on, the less I find a reason to play.

I only care, is it doable to get both Dido and Canarias for reasonable effort.

Also, I am happy with the status of bot ai in coop.

Speaking of updating rewards, when is WG going to come to its senses and reinstate our rewards for achievements?

I wouldn't worry too much.  How often do you see the other "Super Ships" at the top of the scoreboard after battle?  They're more like "So-So Ships."

Not to mention how Super CVs actually TRAMPLE upon the actual idea of "superships" in the first place. .........So basically:

WG: "Captains, Welcome "Superships" to the game. These newly added ships are based on this premise: what if nations continued building powerful artillery ships instead of aircraft carriers?"

Also WG: "AdD In SuPeR CvS AnD JeTs LoL"
