    1. Well, duh, giving away one of the most iconic ships ever, instead of raking in the dough and laughing all the way to the bank? WG is a business after all.. So, like I expected, only camos. But I for one will make an exception and buy HMS Hood, maybe grind a little for the rewards of this campaign. I wonder what stats the Bismarck camo will have. -50% firepower, -25% range, steering permanently disabled? 🙂

        1. Not with that camo, no.. HMS Hood was already sunk.. Look at the shell damage absolutely everywhere. It looks awesome, but too many guns are still functional. Probably worth grinding for, but with RNG determining which tokens you get, maybe impossible to achieve.

    1. From what I see in the original post in Chinese, the missions *should* be repeatable, since they said you could repeat the XP missions if your aim is to complete the campaign without paying

        1. Thx for sharing this detail. If a free Hood is part of the rewards, then I might come back to WoWS even after that stupid 0.6.3 update.

          Can’t wait to rig the missions in PVE by playing what I need to face 😛

  1. Who the FUCK cares about this FUCKING shit because IM not stupid enough to waste money on ANY FUCKING premium ships so i cant do these shit missions without shit Hood?

    1. The stage rewards are SHIT. I sold the Bismark once WG buffed the Tirpitz and made Bismark obsolete. WOWS is PAYTOWIN with premium ships superior to tech tree ships.

        1. Bismarck has the exact same secondary battery as Tirpitz, i.e. no 128mm.

          She does have hydro and better AA in exchange for no torps.

    2. Who says you need Hood to do these missions? If it works like the current pin system you won’t need to do all the missions per stage in order to progress to the next state, so that simply means you skip the Hood missions.

      I’ll bet the Hood missions probably just make it slightly easier for Hood players to progress and get more tokens. The only other disadvantage is you won’t benefit from the 2 Hood camo stage rewards.

  2. Not sure if I’m too into sunk Biscuit camo, I suppose it’s fitting since it’s the Hunt for Bismack missions, but not exactly flattering 😛 Imagine if they made a sunk Borodino class battleship camo for “Battle of Tsushima” missions or something, not sure if the response would be good on that either. Oh well, never hurts to get a free camo.

    Any news on how much the Hood will cost Urakaze sama? (and thx for the translation.)

    1. I can’t be the only one who keeps checking the store, to see if they decided Duca D’Aosta wasn’t selling enough, so they decided to literally break out the big guns..

  3. Meh, didn’t think they would give Hood as a reward. WG was never generous to begin with. They don’t even give out Christmas gift ships anymore (Emden was it), unlike WoT.

      1. Yeah I forgot about the Graf Spee, Mikasa and Katori missions. But I don’t count them because it took ages to get them. Even Mikasa was very tedious even though it’s only tier 2, whereas in WoT you only needed to play one battle.

  4. I wouldn’t use this “camouflage” even if they gave it for free…..

    About the event missions….i don’t know….it seems to me that the next thing they’ll ask from us is to get a PHD in theoretical physics or something. “Oh you’ve become the leading scientist of the 21st century?Jolly good!Here’s a camouflage and some credits for your efforts.”

    1. To me these missions look pretty easy compared to what we usually have (atleast on EU), you don’t even have to get 300k damage + arsonist + liquidator + kraken in single battle of minesweeper ^^. I am pretty sure those numbers seen in this post will be higher when this hits live servers.
