Good morning to all

 

With this latest update (august 30, 2017), we now have the English battleships.... good for us.  But....

I can't "research" the first battleship the Bellerophon but I can research the Queen Elisabeth.  Why is that and how can I research the first battleship in line?

 

Thank you

If you got the 3 blueprint flags in the UK missions, then you already have the T3, T4, and T5 ships unlocked.  Queen Elizabeth at T6 will be the first one you have to grind.

Good morning Ace

I do not have the 3 blueprint flags but I do have the Iron Duke that I didn't buy and I don't understand that.  Can you help me, please?

If you didn't get the blueprint flags as rewards for the missions, you will have to do it the old fashioned way. You need to unlock Caledon and grind her up. After all the upgrades you need 3k (I think) of xp to unlock the tier 3 battleship. You can free xp past all that if you have it but it is such a small amount I wouldn't do that, the grind up won't take very long.

Got the three free BB's... want to research QE and have about 1.5 million ship xp on my Minotaur.. wants to spend 50k FREE Xp to research QE and I am in no way going to do that.  No problem using cruiser xp to research a USN BB... so must be a bug?

Yeah not the way it works unfortunately. You need to either grind up the Iron Duke for the QE or spend free xp to do it. You can convert your Minotaur xp to free xp with doubloons, that is up to you, but you can't do a straight research from Minotaur to QE. Look at the tech tree and it will show you with arrows which ship xp counts for which ship upgrade. In this case it is Iron Duke only. It isn't a bug, just how it all works out.

Thank you all for your response.

 

If I understand this right, I will have to buy all cruisers from the Black Swan up to the Caledon and then I could buy the first battleship.

 

Can someone confirm this, pls?

 

thank u

As was pointed out in your other thread, it isn't a bug.  Unlocking Wyoming had to be done with XP earned on St. Louis or with free XP - nothing else will work.  To research QE just play Iron Duke and use that XP to unlock it.

Yes this is mostly correct. You have to unlock the Caledon then play her to get her upgrades. After she is fully upgraded you need an additional 3000 ship xp to unlock the first BB. 

 

Kerensky I don't think he has the blueprints to start with Iron Duke.

Correct.  Black Swan should be free.  You could probably play thru Caledon and unlock Bellerophon in a day fairly easily.
