  Alright in order to buy back all of my tier 9 ships that I am currently researching.  It is going to cost me a grand total of 53,950,000 in silver.  So if I play my Missouri every day for the next month or so on a daily basis, how long should it take me or rather how many games should it take me to have all of my tier 9 researchable ships bought back.

Way too long. The credit grind in this game is the most ridiculous thing I've ever seen. I run premium account and I always grind through a ship's XP way before I even get close to half of its credits.

 

If you're making good profit (like 650-700k) you should be able to get there in under 100 games. Be thankful you have a Missouri.

How much do you earn in your average Missouri battle?

Do you have premium account?

Any economic flags?

Need a bit more info is what I mean :Smile_hiding:.

In addition, since it has been a while since tech tree discounts, you might find some Tier IX-X discounts.

and the roughly 53 million credits is only the ships I have to buy to be able to research the tier 10s.  I still have to buy back my Yamato my Kurfurst Montana Mino and Hindy as well.  So yea that's only half of what I have to grind.

It depends on a bad game 250 to 300K on a great game 400K to 500K

No to Economic Flags

Yes to premium account.

@torpsRus A long time if you consistently win and get in as much damage as needed for a large net credit payout, Longer if you lose more than win! I got up to 500+ mil long before I got my 1st tier 9 and 10.

As I said I'm not too worried about it.  I am retired after all, plus its a time killer while the forge build is on hold, plus I still got to get my new Missouri Captain up to 19 points lol.  So not too big of a deal.  I've at least got my Tashkent and Z-46 back.  Working on Seattle and Buffalo now.

About 180 games if you average 300k in profits per battle, if my math is correct.  Easily doable before your premium time runs out, and you should have enough time to grind for some of your tier 10s as well.

Well in the next month or so I plan on re stocking my premium account time.  I've just been holding off because all of my money has been going to a forge build that I'm doing outside in real life away from the game.  So I haven't had money to spend on the game itself.

assuming you have Missouri

2mil per 3 games that means around 80 games for your 53mil

3 nights or 2 days? one dedicated weekend?

Nothing wrong with prioritizing RL... a forge, huh?  That means you do smithy work... very cool.  I've often thought it would be very cool to learn bladesmithing; I just don't really have the time to invest.  That and its not something widely taught these days so finding instruction would be a challenge.

Yea I'm attempting it as a retirement hobby, I actually own a working forge already, but I was not comfortable with the way the burners were set up.  Vertically and directly above 90 degrees to the forge body.  So heat rises at risk of melting the burner connection.  So I said no to that started building my own out of an air tank.

I'm assuming said burner connection is supplying fuel to the fire, so I would say that is definitely not the ideal setup.  At any rate, good luck with your hobby and your silver grind!

thanks yea I'm trying to get myself off the PC lol.  Once i get the forge complete I'll try and get some recordings of it up and running, I'm building it out of a 5 gallon compressed air tank.  I was going to do it out of a 5 gal propane tank but I decided not to.
