With the upcoming addition of coal & steel to the game, it looks like you'll be able to buy certain premium ships using this new "currency."  Ships like the MUSASHI which you could only purchase with free XP will now be available with coal.  Will it still be available for purchase using free XP or is that going away?  I didn't see the KRONSHTADT (another free XP premium) listed as a possible coal/steel purchase so I wonder if they're keeping the current free XP purchase method for some ships or will everything be turned over to coal/steel?

I wouldn't be to worried about it.  Also if you purchase Musashi with Coal.  I would take your free xp and get Kronshstadt or how ever the heck you spell that.

It would be nice if everything was available via FXP, and not just coal/steel.

WG has not said if this will replace FXP ships. I would guess not.

They did say that coal ships would rotate, but not timetable for that.

 

A lot of info is here that we hashed out since Monday.

Some premium ships will only be available for purchase with steel, though I do not know if Kronshtadt is one of those.

Nope, Kronshtadt is not available for steel or coal (right now). Here are the ships that will drop on Wed.

 

Quote

You can purchase the following ships using Coal: Oktyabrskaya Revolutsiya (53,500), Aigle (49,500), Yubari (25,500), Musashi (176,000), Salem (240,000), and Campbeltown (19,500).

 

Steel will get you Flint (11,600) and Black (14,000). Tier X cruiser Stalingrad will join these ships in Update 0.7.8 and will cost 28,000 Steel.


If you purchase a ship that you already have in your Port, its price in credits will be transferred to your account. 

Each ship comes with a 3-point Commander and a Port slot.

Thanks - I was just seeing if anyone knew if free XP premium ships were still going to happen (both current and future) or if everything was moving to coal & steel. I have some ships I’d like to use free XP on but not if you’ll still be able to buy certain premiums with it. Guess it’s wait and see...

I don't know if you were around when Missouri was released, or if you forgot the WoW hype around it, but it was promised to be available forever. Either way, the joke, and the sarcasm, went right over your head.

oh  so that was a joke,sorry for not sharing the same sense of humor,because it really happened,but before they said it would vanish,everyone knew it would not go anywhere,so,until we hear from the overlords,we can assume that musashi is not going anywhere,for now.

anyway OP,until the overlords say,musashi will remain free exp,they will just add another way to get her.

We didn't get a whole lot of notice about Missouri, so I hope you're right when it comes time for them to replace Musashi with whichever ship we'll get next

Yeah I was trying to remember how much lead time they gave prior to removing MO, it seems as if it were a month or three. If I remember right it was enough lead time for Jingles to grind out the free xp needed playing OPs, advertising you could make good xp there, and people flocked to the Nauri mission which as we all know, got it removed later on. Anyways it is always conjecture when determining a future change based on past changes but IMHO we would probably get two or three months notice.

It was closer to three than one because i had time to rabidly grind out an obscene amount of free xp using all my special flags and camos on the newly acquired DOY.
