I played 5 co-ops for the win, open my first container and get this:

So, just to clarify.....once you get Bretagne unlocked, you get to start the grind up the line from her once it is released?

No, to grind further you have to wait until the line is released; you just get Bretagne if I remember things correctly.

This. But once the line drops he'll have a head start and any XP he accumulates on Bretagne will count towards the next ship up.

That's what I meant.  Once the full tech tree line is unlocked, you can start the grind from Bretagne, rather than the bottom of the pile at T3.

You can grind out Bretagne herself, but not beyond her.

But once the full line drops, you can move up from T5 instead of the bottom, right?

What are the drop rates for the ship missions? I’m not gonna buy any containers and I’m worrie I won’t get any of the missions even if I get all the free ones. I really want the Lyon and Riechau

Not sure. I think they are low. Real low.

I got a Tier 7, and someone else on the forum got a Tier 8.

 

But the missions drop early (within 10 or 20 containers) and after that nothing else drops.  Maybe they limit you to two personal missions at a time.  Maybe get your two missions, get the two battleships and then get more containers to try to get two more BB missions?

I assume, it can randomly drop any of the ships, not that you have to get the V, then you have a chance at the VI, etc.

Well, nevermind someone just said they had a VII and someone got an VIII. Sweet!

after you finish the quest, what will happen? i guess there won't be a ship in port right since french tree hasn't dropped?

The ship should be in your port in its basic configuration with a 3-point commander. Fully researched upgrades too I believe. You can play the ship and accumulate XP on it. You just won't be able to use the XP for the next ship in the line until the French line is formally released. I think this is how it works anyway. Someone can correct me if I'm wrong.

Same here. I even made myself 10 minutes late back to work so I could squeeze all 5 games into my lunch break.....:Smile_teethhappy:

The ship is there fully upgraded and paid for, with a 3 point captain.

Nothing shows in the tech tree.

True, true; plus a very cool battleship. Fought one today, tuff as hell!

Ya, but then you miss the tier 3 and 4 ships, which might be very cool!

I've seen people claim 0 to 1 out of 50. I got 2 out of 50. A friend I trust got 3 out of 25. I think he was really lucky.

You can still use the Friant to grind to the T3 and then grind the T3 to the T4.

Yeah, true. I just feel like if you XP thru a line you lose a lot of experience playing it and so when you get to the higher tiers you aren't as familiar with them as you could be.
