Free xping your modules is cheating :) Grind them like a man!

 

 

saw this on one of the thread and    wanted to discuss this.       for my own experience,  when  missouri was announced, I stopped using  FXP for  upgrade or skipping a ship.  It has been almost 1.5 years since I've started to grind stock hull and  I find the full experience enriching.     I've also played most of my time as free account to experience the glory of WOWs as developers designed it.    Now, I am down to last few lines to grind (and those were ones that I've quit previously on)  and I am grinding for grind sake but running out of those as well.    I have to figure out what I want to do next  lol.  

 

any other  OCD people here with similar tale?  :D

Was there, did it, got my t-shirt. 

With enough premiums, flags and premium time it isn’t hard to hoard free XP. 

I have all free XP ships so I used them now to skip the T8/9 French stock hulls. After that the higher tier ships of this line are good enough that there is no real need for the other modules. 

I‘m in the same boat with the grinding of ships. The only ones I didn’t have finished are the new BBs and both carriers. And even those are at T9 for the IJN and T8 for the USN. I‘m not good with CV so I only use them in co op so it will take some time to get them done. Also no incentive to spend tons of free XP on them.

I'm just always short on FXP, so I don't have a choice lol.

I do flag and camo up for the upgrading grind though....

I did mine the old fashioned way. After that  I cried Never Again! Free XP past any lemon ships!

I almost always use my free exp on my captain skills.  I usually enjoy the grind, because I love the game.  I find the more I get to know the ship, the better I play in it;  but the Yorck was an utterly horrible experience for me, I just couldn’t make that boat work.  Unlocked the upgrades, then free xp’d to the Hipper.

It's the journey not the destination that makes the difference

What makes you think that's the way they designed it ? Maybe they did it just to drive u crazy so u would spend money , which is what they really want no?

Game's design has problems, it's not the grind that pissing people off. It is somehow unlocked a higher tier, and the new ship is worse in stock configuration than the previous tier. That's just horrific design.

ah,  but  that is the challenge, isn't it?    in most cases, I've had no issue with the stock grind with few exceptions.     some of those few exception has since been eliminated as well.

I have a job that earns myself money, grinding is like having a second job, therefor I don't grind, as I can afford to convert XP to FXP, so I can play what I like.  

Hats off to anyone who stays the course and grinds all the lines

When I got my NO I told my teammates it was stock, you should've heard the moans, lol, and I just bought the Baltimore yesterday, yes it's bone stock with a 17 point captain. I'm not quite sure if I should play it stock.
