Captains! Azur Lane is coming back to World of Warships! What can you look forward to? 6 new Commanders, 3 new skins, and 2 new Premium Ships with skins.
More details coming soon!

 

 

I wonder....... AL New Jersey ship? or AL Bismarck? AL Monarch?

Azur Lane

As part of the next stage of our collaboration with Azur Lane, World of Warships will see the addition of:

  • Ships flag_Russia_6ce701e1c2f2ac3909a68a0a7b23premium_1114542bcd311c388080eea3a4d54a7eIII AL Aurora and flag_Japan_740b57e1da9b5d3fe46b61e09e3dcpremium_1114542bcd311c388080eea3a4d54a7eIX AL Azuma.
  • The following special permanent camouflages: Azur Lane: New Jersey for flag_USA_dd9fc06d19a8638f4077ab2fe200d22standard_1468cf2ed1dc129ec4db4d9d18306bdIX Iowa, Azur Lane: Formidable for flag_United_Kingdom_c1f75d7cca85dc4b4820premium_4516ee494bb0396e51796cebff5e45c3VIII Indomitable, and Azur Lane for flag_Japan_740b57e1da9b5d3fe46b61e09e3dcstandard_9f372d47b4fa5b5bbd79a3aaac816cbVIII Shōkaku.
  • Commanders Bismarck, Zara, Chapayev, Saint-Louis, Formidable, and New Jersey.
  • The Azur Lane — Aurora and Azur Lane — Azuma commemorative flags.

 

If I'm reading this correctly, Iowa, Indomitable and Shokaku will be getting perm camo's.  Only Aurora and Azuma will get AL "Clone Ships".

That would have been a money maker for WG, even without the O.G. Credit Bonus mission for the old Missouri owners.  Missed opportunity by WG.

....Are we gonna get AL Aurora for free? Tier III wouldn't sell for much, riiiight? So maybe there's gonna be some missions to award the ship. Azuma will be for sale obvi(Tier IX premium price or similar). 3 camos, probably 5k doubloons each, so 15k doubloons...and then the commanders, there's 6 new ones, so that's probably like...1500 doubloons each? Probably 10k doubloons or something for all 6.

So probably roughly around 50k doubloons for the entire bundle. Probably a BIT less.

Man An AL New Jersey premium would have made so much money for WG... what an odd decision to use Aurora or Azuma...

The AL shipgirls  almost all seem to have a habit of being... ah... GIFTED in that department.  The one exception I have seen is Yukikaze.

That's how I'm reading it too. Unfortunately for their cash registers, I already have earned-free-in-game permas for both Shokaku and Iowa, and Indomitable already has one as a premium. Plus if I really wanted an Azuma, I could have one for free right this minute.

So far, all the monetized Azur Lane commanders have been exclusive to containers, with the last collaboration event simply adding the new commanders to the loot pool for the containers, so I wouldn't bet on spending as little as 10K doubloons on getting all the new ones

Especially since the captains for them are old, they were already done a long time ago.

Bewbies!!!

Seriously though, it makes me rethink using the National+ voiceovers...if these become ubiquitous, I'll definitely switch to National.

I sure hope it isn't tied to tainers.  That would not be cool.

Heck, I'm happy enough getting her as a captain. I started playing AL a few months ago and deeply regret not starting when she was available, she's pretty well OP and I don't have anything that can match her.

I imagine the ship would sell well even if it was an Iowa clone.

I was wondering the same thing. The choice to use a tier III ship is extremely odd.

This is not true. The last collaboration had several bundles available, including one for each of the three stages of the collaboration that contained only the appropriate AL content. Now, I wouldn’t expect WG to go back to offering the commanders for sale individually (imagine actually giving your customers what they want :Smile_sceptic:), but for those only interested in acquiring the new content (if they already have all or enough of the previous content) there will almost certainly be a way to do so.

What? No Montpelier again?!!! If that's the case why doesn't WeeGee bring out a premium tier 8 American CL instead of another heavy or Atlanta clone? Not at all amused.

Montpellier was offered during the last (3rd) collab, despite being released in the 2nd, so I wouldn’t be surprised if the ship is available again.

For those interested, here is the page for the last collab:

You clearly have never been in a bar before. If I had a dime for every time a 23 year old girl walked into a bar I've worked at wearing almost nothing, I'd have enough money to buy out WG.

98% of the AL girls are adults and are written and admitted to be adults. The 2% that aren't have never been drawn in a perverted way. For reference, here is Unicorn, one of the characters. Intended to be under 18 and oh look, all the art literally shows her modestly covered up and her character is left unsexualized. 8 artwork variants and all of them are, *gasp*, normal clothing people under 18 would wear in an age-appropriate manor.

Please don't be intellectually obtuse or insulting when 5 minutes of googling and self-analysis can confirm that NOTHING in AL is designed from the ground up to be predatory.

To be fair, how many players already have one of the many free camos for Bismarck and would have passed on the purchase for just that reason?
