SPECTATIVE VS REALITY

Before buying the Salem I hoped to be able to win a good amount of money per game, and having the boat I realized that it is not like that.

Generates less than or equal to a line boat or a Tier V premium.

Do not rush into buying it, it does not work if you want to collect money in the game.

PD:   I asked for the money back because I did not like the boat and they ended up answering me for the atlanta

(Google translator "Thank you for reading" )

Every single CC was talking about how Salem didn't have premium earnings, being slightly worse in fact than a tech tree ship with the permanent camo on. In general it is good to do some reasearch, especially before giving large amounts of coal/steel.

In fact Salem actually has the tier 10 premium camo bonuses of -50% service cost, +20% credit earnings, 100% xp bonus, and the usual combat buffs of concealment and incoming fire dispersion.

This camo was not present for the CCs when it was in testing, this was added when Salem went live.

Her service cost after applying all the bonuses possible will be 27k credits that is just about tier 6 level of service cost so her net earnings are better than the tech tree ships.

Ah, I see, wasn't aware of that change.

Still not forgetting that it is a premium boat x tier, should generate more not as much or less than a ship of tier V

It's a bunch of pixels, and pixel money. Relax, man. Play a few rounds in something else to make up the difference. The point is to have fun.

That's right, entertaining and sad at the same time

Pretty much. If I ever have the resources I’ll get it just because I’ve visited the actual Salem in Quincy, MA, and it’s my policy to purchase ships I’ve physically visited, if possible, if they become available in-game.

I don't think anyone was up until Salem went live in the Arsenal.

read the review:

The ship has no significant economic bonuses beyond a reduced repair cost.  She earns less experience than a tier X ship with premium camouflage and playing her regularly may end up costing a player credits, making regular play unsustainable. (!)

There is no any conspiracy about the ship. The info is opened. One could reduce service cost to 45k with pemanent camo. But there wasn't any info, that Salem win big amount of credits per game. Make ticket, I hope you'll solve the question.

Maybe english is not his native language and it wasn't apparent. 

The premium consumables make the money seem low. Add in the silver used to resupply and it's decent. She's a hungry ship to feed. Caesar has repair and heal, and that's it.

All i know is mouse printed the starement in bold and it’s still up. She asked memebers to submit their des memes data to make that conclusion. Let’s see what she thinks.

@LittleWhiteMouse if you get a chance could you please provide us with some clarification?

It means that Wargaming changed the camouflage between the test version and going live and neglected to tell CCs of the upcoming change (despite repeated asks for info).

Ouch. thanks for the instantaneous reply! :cap_like:

I guess that means we can assume no losses in credits then?

Outside of co-op and really bad losses in Randoms, you should be okay.

Co op service cost with all modifications is 20,250 credits and for random battles it would be 27k. Hard to imagine to lose credits in co op with a service fee like that unless you barely did anything and run premium consumables.
