Wanted to see if people took advantage of the 35 to 1 "free" exp conversion.  Had approximately 250k free exp that I had been saving for the Missouri, knew would be awhile to attain ( suffering through stock hulls has been painful).  Heard rumors of the exp conversation event so bought some doubloons through credit card sale and used about 10K.  Now sitting at 700k in free exp and Missouri should be a  couple of weeks away ( unless supercontainer with free exp makes an appearance).  Wondered how many others utilized the opportunity?

My wallet is closed until further notice when WG is considered. Time for them to tie another class to the whipping post for awhile and figure out where the game is headed before cash starts moving again.

no real desire for missouri.     if it was t9 cruiser or DD,  I would be more willing.    have 300k+ saved up though.   may be they will have another freexp premium soon.

I was tempted and splurged about $20 to take advantage of the sale. I had no intention of getting Missouri, as most of my accumulated XP on Elites/Premiums had already gone to several other lines before I realized that "Hey, I can get that, too!". I ended up with about 130k free XP off of my NM and Sims, so that goes to my Iowa grind. With some free premium time thanks to campaigns, I should be able to get the Iowa within the next 24 hours, with only 23k XP to earn in my NC.

 

Probably won't spend any more until WG actually listens to what the community wants and stops making arbitrary decisions. Post-0.6.3, I might just sell off my DDs, as they aren't helping me do anything besides ruin my WR.


Favorite botes to play as of now: Scharnhorst, Belfast, Tirpitz, Dunkerque, Iowa, & Hiryū

Planned additions to port: Montana, Nagato

Welcoming IJN Aircraft Carrier Hiryū to my Port!

I spent 30k doubloons on converting some of my saved free exp. I am sitting at 1.6 million free exp right now.

If I recall, i spent about 2-3k doubloons to convert the xp for my first T10.  Though i still don't have enough credits to purchase her yet. at first i was going to wait and save up for the mighty mo, but then I decided to for the Montana.

Yes, I took advantage.  I've been waiting patiently since winning a ton of doubloons from the Santa's crates.  Initially I was going to purchase the MO., but as time went on I lost interest in her.  I'm really hoping for some type of tier 9 premium DD to be offered like the MO was, but if that doesn't happen I now have 1.3 mill of free XP to either sit on or use for impulse ship purchases in the tech trees.  Like many others, I'm still sitting on 3.5 mil of convertable XP but even with the conversion sale I think the cost is just sky high.  I wish there were other ways to utilize all that XP other than to spend a fortune converting it to free XP.

Nah, I didn't.  While I have nearly 2m free XP waiting to convert, I only have about 50k free xp available.  So I'm looking at over $75 to convert for the Missou even with the discount.

 

I don't think I'll be getting the Missou anytime soon - dat Alabama tho...

I converted everything I had. so I'm just under 800k now but no interest in the Missouri.

Will wait to see what next FreeXP premium WG want to throw out there.  Would particularly like the Kitakami, but opened to anything worthwhile.

Yeah a sale where you get 1,000 Free XP per Doubloon would be nice lol

I have a Yamato. Why would I want to spend $100 for a Missouri? It makes absolutely no sense.
