WG! You know they are coming, how long do we have to wait for them? And how much coal/steel should we start saving?

But why are you people wanting tier 11, superships drain your credits, tier 11 will probably do the same, i'm sure the whales already have their credit card in hand ready to spend even more money on this game and buy credits for 100 dollars 3 times over to buy every supership in the game along with boosters they will intoduce with the new economic system coming, newsflash, having a supership dosen't make you invincible, maybe you feel like "oh, im top tier, i can't be touched" wrong, you got it all wrong people who think that.

I have been wondering the same thing and was thinking that the one major (and deliberate) issue with Superships is the high operating cost and that a "Premium/Special" ship classification would allow this cost to be cut in half (or more) along with possibly a corresponding built-in factor to increase (or degrease) credits award (or decrease cost) (analogous to the Missouri) that would minimize/eliminate the credit drain.

I also wonder what will come first the direct sale or a steel ship (or perhaps a new purchasable currency)?

You people?

Just one guy making a trolly thread. Basically a straw man.

They don't cost that much to play. It's less than $1 US per game and you can get it back with a few Tier 8, 9 or 10 games.

Assuming super premiums follow the established pattern, then they would cost less to run inherently.

1) This is a trolly thread, likely making fun of WG’s previous statement when the game was young that premium ships wouldn’t go past tier VIII (Tirpitz was a big deal when she released as the first tier VIII premium). WG also has a tendency to make decisions to their short-sighted benefit but to their and the game’s long-term detriment, so the company changing course to release “premium superships” that earn more credits despite the purpose of “superships” being to drain players credits is sadly not that difficult to imagine.

2) The tier XIs the OP is referring to and “superships” are one and the same. WG can call them what they want, but these “superships” are tier XI in all but name. The fact that they are generally superior to tier X ships, can’t face tier VIII ships outside of a fail division (i.e. they are treated as tier XI by the MM), and they receive a tier XI bonus from the Survivability Expert skill makes this pretty apparent. WG originally tried to present them as “alternate” tier Xs with different mechanics (burst fire, alternate torpedoes, etc), but even that narrative doesn’t hold up any more with the reveal of the WIP tier XI German cruiser, which has no such special mechanics and is simply a bigger and more powerful Hindenburg.

Maybe but it's a legitimate concern....

Not only are Superships AKA T11 a direct nerf to a player's credit earning but also XP and FreeXP....  That's right.... you get exactly zero clan bonuses for those items.... but weirdly enough still get CXP... why?   Why does WG do anything that they do?

people probably thought that when people made threads about T9 and T10 premiums and look where we are now, at this point with WG, nothing is a matter of "if" it'll happen, its "when"

Atago was made for sale before Tirp.

Atago:

"Added to the game in Update 0.4.0 (Beta) as a Tier VIII premium ship."

Update 0.4.0 Release Date was: 25 June 2015

Tirp:

"Available for testing by supertesters in the game starting from Update 0.4.0.4 .  First on sale in the Premium Store from September 10 to September 25, 2015."

September 10 2015 would have been in update 0.4.1

Correct, of course. Must have slipped my mind because Tirpitz was the first tier VIII premium introduced after the game left Beta. :Smile_facepalm:

Although tier VIII Kitakami technically preceded both of them. :Smile_veryhappy:

If people reading this thread didn't know better they probably would think these ships cost them a weeks salary to play. We are talking about losing 40 to 60 cents, US per game which can easily be earned back with a few T10 and lower games. You could play five super ship games for the price of a Big Mac happy meal supersized.

They’ll be $200, and WG won’t bother to put them up for any other currency.

Coal?  Ahahahaha!

Eventually sure, like salem naploli yoshino etc et c etc. Although you’re probably right, at that point there will be tier 12 ships for sale via dubs.
