    Whale Call! 300 Ships!

    True enough, but one poster has 307, so I am beaten. :)

    Whale Call! 300 Ships!

    I would add, BTW, that Up until this last Fall, I had cut my fleet down to a little over a hundred, pretty much kept all the BBs, all the USN ships, etc. I did have a lot of Premium ships, and I acquired most of those around Christmas of 2017. I got a lot of the fat Halloween boxes of that year, (the ones that gave you loads of doubloons for duplicate Halloween camos!), seeing that the return of doubloons per dollar spent on boxes was a big discount overall. When they started selling the cheap ships on the tech tree, I had over 70K dubs saved up and bought all the cheap ones. That left the ones I really wanted like Gremy and Nikolai, plus a few like Tirpitz and Atago that were more costly. When I got ships out of the Xmas boxes, that meant that I would not get Emden or Tachibana or Albany, but rather each ship that came from a box was likely one f the ones I really wanted. So I ended up buying relatively few boxes and almost maxed out my premiums that first year. I wanted the Stalingrad pretty bad and saw my chance with the Snowflake thing, and gradually bought back all the old ships I sold when I ground past them, just snagging the coal or steel and moving up, until I was down to the CVs, at which I suck pretty bad (I tend to stay t Co-op with those, nowadays), bit the bullet and ended up with just enough to grab Stali. since then, given that I own my own business and don't spend money on booze, drugs or ladies, picking up the free and premium ships along the way, it is easy to keep up. It never really mattered how many ships I had, although I am a collector, there is no way I can have every one of them. It was fun to look back on how I got here. I do like playing and learning a new thing or two and the journey has been really cool, with the added bonus of the great people I can say I have sailed with.

    Whale Call! 300 Ships!

    Nah, port is manageable. I got into the game in May of 2017, so all the ARP ships, the Arky B and Iwaki A, as well as two of the three Kamikaze sisters (I got Kami from a stream giveaway, IIRC), were already gone by that point. My first premium was Diana, followed by Texas, as I took a buddy's invite into the game, the third was Bismarck, which I won, believe it or not, in the Hunt for Bismarck thing. I ground to the Iowa first, as I love the USN BB line (which was probably why I started playing), and when I saw that I could get the Missouri for free, basically ground my way to the Montana while racking up the FXP to get her. Did not spend a dime on my favorite ship in the game. My first 8 months in the game I basically ground win rate into the landfill, trying to figure out tactics and angles, but have managed to get to solid mediocre now. I think I have something like 70 wins under 50% after, well you can see I have played a lot. Now I am no great shakes, but at least my teams can count me as a steady player, with an eye on the minimap.

    Thanks. I started this partly to look back on a couple of fun years of this game, considering all the changes in recent months and looking forward to what is to come.

    It's the Privateer emblem.

    Cool, Monty and Yammie were my first T10s, still top of the line

    I saw you once in your Salem, very effective and skillful.

    Suit yourself. I understand you have a few ships though. Any you particularly enjoy?

    Well, I have the Kutuzov and Belfast, Flint and Stali, but I feel more affinity with Missouri. Interestingly, I liked the New York, along with all the USN BBs. I wasn't really good with them until much later, but each has its good points.

    Yep, BBs were the first type I had to collect.

    I added ship number 300 to my port today. My faves out of the array are still Missouri, Nikolai, Gremyashchy and Kamikaze, but I'm curious to know how others view their collections. No idea how many others have made it to 300, but whatever the number, what have been your experiences with collecting and your favorite rides?

    Rouge Wave Crates are $5; Hill is $24.99

    I had a bunch of doubs saved up already and got a few more for a total of 44 crates. That got me all the t10 camos, 660 fuel tokens, almost 1M commander XP (for Jingles, naturally), a whole lot of coal and 9M credits, in addition to random other camos and premium time. The 180 consumable camos are the same high-end stuff as the New Year Streamer, i.e. +100% to xp, Free xp, and +150% to Commander xp. So I'm pretty happy overall. I did grab Hill, and it seems okay, another mid-tier USN DD for rock-hugging, etc and it looks nice.

    something makes me skeptical here...

    Nice touch! But they should be Cadillacs if we are talking boats.
