I thought I saw a few vids mentioning the Dalian would be available today. Is that still the case?

 

Thanks!

Hi there! What we were told as CC's is that it would release February 3rd/4th (which to me implies that it depends on your time zone) hope this helps!

Ships tend to release on fridays or update days (Wednesdays) but SEA usually has the premium shop updated in the afternoon of Thursday for NA

It is released on the Asia server. Listed for 19,300 dubs. No resources mentioned for it (ie coal etc). Expect we should be seeing it in NA on Friday morning.

And here is the link: https://armory.worldofwarships.asia/en/ for the overview page and https://armory.worldofwarships.asia/en/category/featured/5000001486 for the ship itself. As usual there's also an "Admiral Pack" bundle.

I don’t see anything compelling about this ship to make it worth any investment. Essentially it is a large destroyer.

Gameplay will be part wall of skill and part semi-nuetered Smolensk.  DPM is so so but taking IFHE at high tiers to help with pen usually isn't worth it since you need fires to deal with BBs.  It actually interesting to me but I think it's skill floor is bit higher than usual.  It has all the drawbacks and weaknesses of something like a Smolensk plus a few but lacks the DPM to compensate... you have to land torps to make it really work.

Is it really a dubs only ship?  Would that be the first ship like that ?(ARP Yamato doesn't really count since there is an identical ship in the tree).

Giuseppe Verdi was just like that not too long ago.

Any idea what the real currency will be for it once/if the 19.3k dubs exclusive is over?  Hoping for FXP but coals would work for me.

IIRC, the FXP ship thing is not something WG is doing any longer. The Research Bureau is sort of taking its place.

Given its fragility the range is really rough, too.

As someone already said, FXP for ships looks like it's being grandfathered.  Maybe for coal in a few months, but even the Guiseppe Verdi is still doubloons only.

As usual those who speak don't know and those who know don't speak...:Smile_veryhappy:

Didn't realize about GV.... well I guess that makes Dalian a second step down the slippery slope of monetization.  T9 is just one step away from T10... and once a T10 ship becomes cash only then that is getting awfully close to P2W. 

Personally I think Dalian is something that I'd consider using the rest of my leftover dubs on but it's not $80 good.

The game won't likely ever be pay to win. Pay to skip to Tier X? Sure, but the ones who do are almost always the worst players lol.

Paying to skip to Tier X is one thing....  A Tier X being only available for cash is another.... especially if said Tier X turns out to be pretty good... Tier X is the most used tier for competitive games.  So in that case it's no longer paying to skip a grind when cash becomes the only path that ship.
We aren't there yet... but if these two ships stay dubs only, then we just took a step closer to that.
