    British Heavy Cruisers

    I've managed to get the T5 every time so far, beginning with French battleships (I wasn't in the game for the UK BB release). Usually it's T5/6; Italian cruisers was an exception (T5/7). I only got the T5 for Russian battleships, but that was because I preferred to spend my tokens on things other than early-release chances and I didn't have all that many left at the end.
  2. 4/65 to start with. The denominator decreases by one every time you buy a bundle; the numerator decreases by one every time you get a ship. If you are both willing and able to spend 65K doubloons, you are guaranteed all four - but these being tech tree ships, it isn't worth trying unless: 1) You've unlocked all the token bundles and got nothing, OR... 2) The first doubloon bundle is a ship (because they all come with permacamos, and the permacamos are worth at least that much). 3) You believe the contents of the other doubloon bundles (the non-ship ones) are actually worth 1000 doubloons each (which I personally do not). The token bundles, on the other hand, are non-exhausting. Those you can't calculate the odds on. Personally I think it's easier and cheaper just to play for the tokens, try to get some for free... and if you fail, to play the line out and then just pay for the camos if you really want them. Standard permacamo for the T6-8 is likely to be cheaper than this pretty white and gold thing we're getting, and you will be through the Hawkins quickly enough that you don't really NEED a permacamo if you don't get the earlybird release.
  3. I didn't see the original post and it didn't seem to be anywhere on the first page, so why not? Sorry to hear that. I would not have put it up if it hadn't worked for me.

    Quick research into what a Posleen is tells me that I would rather eat the buffalo.

    What do you have to do to get this?

    Bookends! So you're the who stole everyone's RNG. Duly noted.

    I find both of them fun and challenging to play. The showing of too much side to the wrong enemy ship will result in a massive diminution of your health and/or a quick trip back to port.

    Based on a small sample in co-op, Hawkins has troll armour and you will be surprised what it can bounce. However, just like skipping stones off the water, get the angle wrong and heavy stuff will go straight in and end you. @_RC1138, how did you get all four of them so quickly, to speak with such authority? Are you a tester?

    Played a lot of co-op with some randoms in between. Set a new personal damage record (250K or so) in the Jean Bart in co-op. Unlocked the Hawkins, and thanks to a bit of well-timed downtime compensation was able to pick her up earlier than I'd expected to. Found myself with more free time than I expected on Sunday, and got the Ryujo --> Shokaku grind finished. Chipped away a little bit at the Yamamoto missions. Overall a productive weekend.

    Second Round Of Directives

    The only silver lining is that what's locked behind the mission is more or less inconsequential (specifically, you don't need it in order to get the early-access ships). @Femennenly - this is a rather odd omission on WG's part. To paraphrase the F7 key, "We need intelligence data!"
  12. My big problem with both these ships and the DD Siliwangi is that it's the night before the first of the directives that allows their use for easy bypass missions and there's no news article or even shop sale for them. If one of these ships drops in a crate I'll be happy to have it, but I'm very, VERY uncertain about buying any of them. We know far too little.

    Revisiting the 9V9/Mercy Rule/Falling Sky...err Stats Issue

    +1 The absurdity of snowflakes is gone from us until the next snowflake falls. Speaking of which, given my local weather forecast, I strongly suspect I will be spending the first half hour of my Monday playing World of Snow Shovels. THOSE snowflakes are going to take a lot more energy to clear!

    It is, but it's a minor general nitpick rather than a criticism of your actual work.
  15. Been there, tried that. It seems to relax me a bit and games go better from that point on. But one beer is enough. After two I'm impaired, and six would probably have me calling in sick the next day.
