Help Me With a Grinding Math Question

I'm normally pretty good at math (as long as I have enough fingers and toes to count with.)

Here's the math problem.

I currently have the Bismarck with 270,195 XP.

I had the Freidrich der Gross but sold it. All of its modules are fully researched.

So there is nothing left to research with the FderG.

Later on I decided to grind for the Kurfurst without buying the FderG a second time.

When I now click on the Kurfurst to unlock it I am told I'm still 38,514 XP short.

Well, since 270,195 is a bigger number than 255,000 how on earth am I still short 38,514?

Okay, I'm bracing myself for one of those answers that make you go "Doh!"

Kurfurst is from the DeGrosse.  So you would need 255k XP on deGrosse to get Kurfurst without using free XP.  You must have 215k Free XP (Green number in the top right) I figure.  That number on the Bismark is kind of meaningless once you get the Fredrick.  Although you can use the Dubloons (which I have none) to convert that to free XP or something.  I have 750k XP on some ships that I can not do anything with..... 

 

Sounds like you need to be Fredrick, play 5-7 battles for wins (or ~ 10-12 losses) to get your Kurfurst!

Bismark XP is stuck to Bismark and Bismark only, you need to play more games on Fredrich the Grobe in order to unlock the Grober Kurfurst

have you used gold to convert some ship XP to free XP, which has removed some XP from one of the ships leaving you short of XP

Wow. 

 

How about giving us a couple minutes to digest how you figure Bismark xp would port over to GKF?

I feel ill now.   :cap_fainting:

I have about 27 million credits and don't want to waste 15million of them for a stock FderG.  I also want to save my 208K Free XP.

Oh well, I'll stick with the Conq as my only T10 BB.  My sweet spot is T5-7 anyways.

I was told that you could skip over a ship but never tried it before.

How much camo and how many special flags do you have? 38k free xp can be done in about 5-10 games easily if you have all the boosters. To me with my limited credits currently, I would rather grind out 38k free xp than spend that much on a tier 9 only to sell it after about 5-10 games.

From my own experiences, when you have your Freidrich, you either did not fully upgrade her.

Can you take a screen shot of your grey out Freidrich for us to see more information?

 

On the other hand, the ship XP you have on the Bismark, stay with the Bis, the XP did not carry over to the Freidrich to get to the Kurfurst. What you should have done, is convert those XP on the Bis to freeXP or wait till the next discount to convert them. It a waste to stay on the Bis

I had to do this the other day (fortunately for a lot fewer Cr).  You sold FdG before you unlocked GF; it wasn't an Elite ship when you sold it.  Now you either buy it back or come up with enough FXP to make up the difference.  No way around it.

Bismarck has nothing to do with this.

Wait,  does a ship being elite mean something when you sell the ship? Other than the fact that you should already have the following ship?

Was this a trick question or are you like those underground moles that are basically blind?

Not absolutely.  If you have the following ship and it's not Elite you won't be able to do anything with any XP accumulated on it. "Elite" is a good check.

Being Elite means that you not only went through the hull research, you upgraded all the guns, torps, fire control and propulsion too (as applicable for a particular ship). What I'm not completely sure of is whether this gives you FXP on all XP earned from that point, or access to the entire pool of XP earned so far for conversion.

Any XP earned on an elite ship stays locked with the ship.   It’s now a pool of ship XP that is available for conversion to free XP for $$$.

Hence the reason I have two ships with over 100k xp on each...I don't have the doubloons (haven't spent $$) convert it to FXP.

Bismarck XP is irrelevant.  The 255 is how much FdG XP is required to get you to GK.  If you are 38K short, that means you didn't research all the modules on the path to GK.   Please confirm.  Post a screenshot if it shows you have researched the main FdG module line to GK.
