US CVs and the mentioned Free XP

So in the new patch video it is mentioned that Free XP will be given out for researched US CVs. However does this mean that they also have to be purchased and sitting in port slots to be counted?

I have both the Langley and Bogue fully researched, however I sold both some months back because the grind fest to get to the Independence felt too much like me hitting my head against a wall. However like I said both have fully been researched, but aren't currently active/available in my port (not using port slots). So will this cause WGing to not give me the Free XP that they mentioned?

 

They did not specify this point, so if anyone does know then I'd appreciate some clarification on this.

 

Thanks!

Tier IV Aircraft Carrier Langley

  • No changes

 

Tier V Aircraft Carrier Bogue

Changes to Flight Control and modules:

  • Flight Control modules Mk5 mod. 2 and Mk5 mod. 3 will no longer be available for research. If a player purchased those modules, they will be removed from the player's account.
  • Module Mk5 mod. 1 comprising 1 squadron of each of fighters, torpedo bombers and dive bombers will be mounted automatically. If the stock Flight Control module was sold and never purchased back, it will be added to the player's account and mounted on the ship free of charge.

Bonus amounts to be paid in respect of researched and purchased modules which are to be removed from the tech tree:

  • If a player researched and purchased the Mk5 mod. 2 and Mk5 mod. 3 modules, a bonus in the amount of 580,000 Credits and 7,000 Free XP will be added to the player's account.
  • If a player researched the Mk5 mod. 2 and Mk5 mod. 3 modules, a bonus in the amount of 7,000 Free XP will be added to the player's account.
  • If a player researched and purchased the Mk5 mod. 2 module, a bonus in the amount of 290,000 Credits and 3,500 Free XP will be added to the player's account.
  • If a player researched and purchased the Mk5 mod. 3 module, a bonus in the amount of 290,000 Credits and 3,500 Free XP will be added to the player's account.
  • If a player researched the Mk5 mod. 2 module, a bonus in the amount of 3,500 Free XP will be added to the player's account.
  • If a player researched the Mk5 mod. 3 module, a bonus in the amount of 3,500 Free XP will be added to the player's account.

 

You could've played Independence in PvE scenarios. The grind there is actually pretty smooth. Just avoid Myoko and Aoba because they have Defensive AA Fire.

So while the Bogue is not currently purchased and sitting in my port, I will still get the Free XP for the modules I researched?

While I can't say for absolute certain, since they are repaying you for XP "spent" on research I would say yes, you'll get the free XP.

This, it should be if you used xp, you get xp, you just get no credits obviously unless the module is in your port still.

OK so I had both Langley, bogue, and independence and then I sold it all because I found strafing infuriating and stupid so I abandoned carriers all together. So since I sold it all for reduced credits from purchasing them and the experience I put in them. I definitely get all that research back in free exp for the upgrades and I get the credits too? But only for the upgraded load out's nothing else. Just want to clarify for my self from my situation.

I took screenshots earlier today JUST in case they try to pull a "Oh we don't see you having put progress into the USN CVs" card on me. But hopefully I won't have to submit a ticket and deal with all that. Fingers crossed.

It's good you took a screenshot, hope you don't have to issue a ticket.

You got that right. You and me both. Seems like a waste of everyone's time to submit a ticket when someone can just do their job correctly and everyone doesn't have to do double the work.

 

Let's hope that keep their word.

Shame we can't get back XP and credits for the rest of the line, including what was spent on the actual hulls. 

Right now some of us have NO reason to take our USN CVs into battle.

T6 CVs are still useful in scenarios, especially Operation Killer Whale where literally none of the enemy ships have Defensive AA Fire. Lovely hunting ground for Ryujo and Independence. :fish_cute_2:
