OK friends; been playing for awhile, but some features elude me and I haven't been able to figure out a couple of things...
I play a Scharnhorst pretty much exclusively. I ground my way to T10 in US BB's (and quite a few other lines) before becoming a "wallet warrior". Paid for a year of premium time and dubloons, to boot.
Philosophically, I don't mind supporting the game with some cash. Somebody stayed up late quite a few nights to create this game AND I LOVE IT! I'm retired and have the disposable income, and I play several hours every day.
My 2 questions are about consumables...
I had the Repair Party II at 15 dubloons per match until I ran out of dubloons. The remarks say it costs 22,500 credits OR 15 dubloons. I have LOTS of credits, but can't figure out how to pay for RP II with them. I guess I can buy more dubloons, but why can't I just use credits?
My other question is WHY does WG give me consumables as rewards when none of my ships can use them? E.g., smoke generator? I have no DD's or CL's in my port slots, so what good did it do me to grind to Rank 8 to "earn" a smoke gen?
I'd really appreciate it if someone with more knowledge than I could 'splain it to me, please.
