Yes I read the patch notes and the half dozen threads already on the forums about the same topic. :cap_haloween:

Yeah, because they took up an incredible amount of space when you had them turned off ... not!

Credits and port slots are easy to come by. I've got 40+ spare ship slots without ever trying.

The ARP ships and captains otoh will never be obtainable again. They're going to be increasingly rare collectors ships, so I kept them. I did however get rid of the duplicate captains, one of each is enough.

I kept the 10 point captains and dismissed the other ones. I kept the ships to do experiments with and since I can hide them they aren't a bother other times. I certainly don't need the credits and I have more port slots and captain reserve spots than I'll ever use

Cleansed my port, kept one of each and they paid for the Alsace.....plus 6 more slots that I didn't really need...it's all good. :Smile_teethhappy:

And they are still meaningless and useless to most of us. This bizarre "collector" mindset is your choice...doesn't mean others must follow...:Smile_amazed:

Same here , I haven't started on the IJN line yet , and the Takao comes in handy for missions sometimes , but I don't need 5 Myoko clones including the dragon ship and 4 Kongo clones . One of eadh is enough .

Do you not have a bunch of ships in your port that you play and don't want to sell? If so then you are a collector. My mindset is far from bizarre friend, considering that the whole point of the game is to grind the tech tree to reach and collect ships we want. The only difference between us is in which ships we wish to keep or sell.

I've also never asked anyone to follow. I gave my opinion, no more no less.

I appreciate the heads-up - I rarely bother reading patch notes, unless there are significant changes a-brewing.

I've had those ships hidden so long, I had pretty much forgotten about them - good to know I can finally make use of them.

In regards the skippers, though - is there an option whereby they might be sold into a Middle Eastern slave market, and thereby maximise my financial return, as well as allowing their ridiculous screeching and squeaking to be put to best use?

No?

Maybe next patch.

Thanks again!

I'm sorry you don't seem to get this, but I'll try to clarify. Your statement clearly tries to make out these ships somehow have value, when they don't, so yes, you were trying to sell people on keeping them.

You claim somehow they are "Increasing rare", when there is no such thing as RARE when it comes to pixels. And it really matters not to the vast majority of players that they won't be obtainable again. Collectible items have value, that's what makes them collectible, pixels have no value. If WG were to shut down tomorrow, you wouldn't have anything collected, except a memory...

Your entire logic chain breaks down here, pixels don't have any substance, you may as well claim a pixelized copy of the Mona Lisa is actually rare and valuable....:Smile_teethhappy:

I didn't need the credits, or the slots, but I also have no need for ships I'll never play....The only reason I kept one of each is that I have so many free slots and credits, and who knows, at some point in the future, I may actually play them, or be given a reason to by way of an event...still doesn't mean that I need 4 duplicate ships with ugly paint schemes...

I have no ships I keep because of "Oh SHINY!", I keep ships I like to play, or might play at some point, or might have a use in an event, or keep to avoid getting a duplicate in an SC......there is no other reason to keep them..:Smile_hiding:

 

And if WG allowed in game trading, I would have happily given them to someone who wanted them, but they don't and never will so.....out they go....

I was going to sell them but now that I can, I don't think I will.  As long as I have an excess of available port slots there is no need to.  Besides, these ships are going to become rarities over time.

One thing to note is that YOU DO NOT GET PORT SLOTS FOR SELLING THE ARP SHIPS. The ARP ships never took up space in the first place. To be fair, I don't recall WG ever changing that either, so I could be wrong if it was changed recently.

No idea about the Dragon ones though. I think those two were rewarded with a port slot. So one may gain port slots for selling them off.
