Anyone else suspect the Kronshtadt will be a free XP ship?

Obviously I have nothing to back that up, but I don't see where else it will fit in the current Soviet tech tree. Am I out in left field thinking this?

I think it will probably be a reward ship. I can't recall where, but I did hear something along the lines of that it was going to be a Clan Wars reward ship. Of course, I can be wrong, but that seems like a logical slot that Kronshtadt can fill.

Certainly possible, although there's no money in that. If there's one thing I learned after four years of WoT, if there's a way to monetize it, they'll do it.

Would love a fxp cruiser since the last 3(?) have been BBs. Sadly though as long as its as bad as it looks, it may not be worth the price.

I have Missouri, Nelson, and Musashi.  I am also back up to almost 100k Free XP.  Let's get the next Free XP ship in the works!

Stalingrad Tier 10 cruiser similar to the Kronshtadt is supposed to be the Clan Wars reward ship.  Kronshtadt is going to be Tier 9 which just screams Free XP ship.

They hinted at ships being available for a new currency. WE also know they want to use oil. My guess is that it will be purchased for personal oil.

OK, thanks for the clarification, I guess I just got confused between the two. I think the Kron is going to be a FXP ship then.

If so, I guess I need to join a clan and start building my oil totals.  Does a clan exist with just a period or apostrophe for a clan name?  All these clan tags in front of players' names annoys me.

Dude, the 10% off on basically everything should have had you in a clan before now.  10% off research XP cost of ships, 10% off credit price of tech tree ships & 10% off post-battle repair once each clan port facility has all it's upgrades (this is off the top of my head, if anyone's in game or knows better, please correct me.)

Tried to verify this, but there's no mention of clans in the wiki...

There was a statement from a WG rep that “the next FXP ship wasn’t going to be a BB”, which may be where the speculation the Kron will be a FXP ship is coming from.

Things we know.

1.  As a Tier 9 it won't be a tech tree ship
2. WG won't sell conventional premiums higher than T8, so it won't be a regular premium.  
3.  The Stalingrad will be the first Clan Battles reward, and since the Kronstadt appears to be ready for release long before the Stalingrad, odds are almost zero that the Kronstadt will be a CB reward.   
4.  WG has strongly hinted at the fact that there will be a non BB Tier 9 Free XP ship.

So while nothing is concrete, there is a really good chance it will be a Free XP ship.  The only other possible alternatives is a ranked reward, or maybe some kind of new event/campaign ship....but that doesn't strike me as a likely outcome.

I think your suspicion is a good one.  Until we know more information, it's probably the most reasonable guess.

Is that USS Alaska? xD

As for "Krony," I am interested because she's suppose to be more of a battlecruiser, rather than a pure cruiser, right? :3

I just want it in the game, live, so my Battleships can start smashing it.  It's as big as a Battleship with the armor of a Cruiser.  No better kind of target for a Battleship to shoot at.

Don't make me feel bad. It looks cool and I kind of want it.

before this argument starts (it will) it depends on whose definition of battlecruiser you use.

Of course. Well, I just hope the argument doesn't become too serious. I mean no ill will. LOL. :Smile_hiding:

I was just saying that because that's the impression I got from reading Miss Maus' preview.

She also said it's very much like Scharnhorst, a BB and a cruiser hybrid. And I really like Scharnhorst, so I'm guessing that Krony would be fun to play too.

Well, I guess the ship has some armor issue, but nothing's perfect in this world anyway. :fish_cute_2:
