each region has a different marketing department, and the china server is basically autonomous. 

 

the albany was kinda crappy anyway...i played a bunch of battles and sold it. there was a range buff after that i think, but it still struggled. just a T2 throw away prem like so many in WoT...unless youre a collector.

Just like the Anshan currently on the China server

 

China is completely different from any other server.

Theres the China server summed up.

Who on earth cares? She's a terrible ship that most of us(including me) have anyway.

Better look out, LWM will kill you. She disapproves of selling ANY PREMIUM SHIP, no matter how bad.

I love the Albany. Such a fun ship. I've gotten a number of krakens in her. Even better was that she was free.

Poor old Albany; most beautiful ship in the game and one of the least fun to play. Alas, and a lack!!

She was fun in closed beta, but then fell victim to the open beta nerf hammer.

bigger question is why anyone would want Albany? That ships way under powered.:bajan: Also Albany was a gift ship and is tier 2, its not like we're missing out on lets say Atago or something!

Me I would buy it. It is not because it's a tier 2 ship that it is less fun. Lower tiers have their fun too that is different from higher tiers, and I play up to tier X. What I like about these ships is it gives me the chance to experience other play styles. And I would so like to experience Albany too like I would for the Anshan I missed too because I didn't know yet this game at that time.

I wonder why Albany isn't in 1907 refit form, with 10 5"/50 guns (or the 1918 refit with 2 guns removed and an AA gun added if that's too powerful for T2). Actually that'd be better than the awful Chester for the USN tech tree ship. Like a mini-Bogatyr.

I'd really like ti too more than the Chester. I hope at least that the new containers system can give it.

I would pay for the USS Albany. I had full health in a Chester and an Albany took me out with two salvo's, I hit Albany with 30 or so rounds and barely scratched it!!!

You realize that Albany is one of very few exceptions to WG's "don't touch premiums after release" policy, right?  And one of only two that actually got a buff as a result of it?

 

Yeah, it's that bad.  They had to buff a free ship.

No, it's "don't nerf premiums." Many premium ships have been buffed in small ways, or like Atago, not so small ways. I don't think Albany was ever nerfed.

Yet, look at how they have refused to buff some premiums that could use it for long periods of time.  Like Atlanta (until the - very recent - addition of radar), Yubari (again, only a recent addition - ASM0 - fixed this), and Mikasa (which got screwed even harder by the new MM).  I'm aware that they only explicitly mention nerfs, but it seems they don't want to touch them either way unless chronic community pressure is applied.

 

Other than Atago's gaining of Repair Party, I honestly can't recall any major buffs to premiums before the series we got for the older CBT ships.

I care because I don't have one and I would like it for my collection... since you asked.
