Ran first battle in new Tier 9 IJN DD. My experience:

296 shell hits
83,000 damage (I am running IFE)
4 fires, 2 sunk

Her stats are not horrible. Mine has a 2.8 second reload, turrets rotate 180 in 9.7 seconds. She has 20,700 HP, mine does 37.5 knots speed, gun range 12.4km, she has smoke, speed boost and torpedo reload. Torpedo single launcher with 6 torpedo, stock are 10km, mine are 12km range, reload sucks at 171 seconds. My rudder is 3.7 sec, conceal on mine is 5.9km.

I enjoyed the battle, we lost, hard to win when we have 1 radar to their 4. I was pelting a Izumo at 9km angled for
1100-2000 damage each volley. Which is not great but it all adds up in the end. Broadside Tirp at 8km was getting 1800-3000 each volley.

I caught a bit of a video that Wargaming did from Gamescon.

The biggest takeaway from that was (IMHO) they will be introducing (no date given) a "Pan-European" line (similar to the existing Pan-Asian).
They said that they would be moving the Polish DD Blyskawica to Pan-European.
Additionally, they would be adding to Pan-European ships from the Dutch Navy as well as from the Austro-Hungarian Navy. (Sorry Nero, no mention of the mighty Finnish Navy).

Just completed the WoWs 3rd Anniversary Collection.

From that I scored a Supercontainer.

And inside that Supercontainer I found this:

Image

The Scharnhorst (a premium ship) is currently running for $43.14 in the Premium shop. And when you purchase it in the shop you do NOT get a 10 pnt commander with it. The 10 pnt Dasha commanders currently run $16.21/each.

:D

Dayum.

The rest of the Schkankwhores class (for grinding) was kinda fun but I recall usually getting up-tiered to T8 and T9 matches against Bismarcks and Iowas. They all had more guns than I. Especially Amagi. :|

"Oops, sorry, no you're not getting anything! Sorry about that!"

So, nevermind! :lol:

And there I was thinking of getting back to the game to try out some new ships, guess not!

I noticed that the other day.
I read the retraction email from Wargaming saying they were not actually issueing those ship, but do not recall reading the initial email which granted them.

I suspect that the intended distribution list for the initial email was probably their supertesters and community contributors but some Wargaming operative erred when they punched in who it was to be sent to.
