Wargaming recently announced a few changes to the Armory that are quite worth highlighting. May it be if you want to grab a ship before it gets removed or if you want to get ready for new ships, here they are:
So yeah, if you want a Jean Bart or a Smolensk (or both), you have a bit more than 2 months to get the necessary coal for them. I knew that they would remove the Smolensk from the Armory quite soon since… well the ship is indeed pretty damn popular due to her low skill floor and because spamming 16 shells every 4 seconds can be quite fun. I just didn’t expect it to happen that soon.
For Black and Neustrashimy, I can understand the decision because while these ships were quite unique (especially Neustrashimy), they still had to compete with things like Bourgogne or Stalingrad. In the end, anyone would prefer the big and strong ships to these 2.
Regarding the upcoming new ships, unless Hayate gets buffed, I will definitely tell you to keep your Free XP for Smaland. The ship is decent but certainly not worth what will most likely be 1.5 million Free XP. Smaland, on the other hand, is, in my opinion, a great destroyer hunter.
Marceau is basically the perfect child of Kléber and Colbert. Shouldn’t have let these 2 alone with a nice bottle of champagne.
For Yashima… well first we have to test her to judge. I’m happy though, called it that she would be for steel.
I don’t know when all of these ships will arrive but you can already start farming coal as well as Operation Narai for the Free XP.
