Arsenal and Port slots question

Since I have now run out of port slots and need to add more ships into my collection, is it possible to buy arsenal ships with coal, sell the ship to use the port slot, then buy the ship again for another slot over and over? I know it would be hard on my coal supplies, but hate idea of selling ships that are decent to good from the various tiers in the tech tree.

It sounds like it will work, You won't know until you try it.

You can also keep an eye out for port slot sales. Between a 50% port slot sale and a 75% port slot sale, I have enough port slots for the ships I don't have yet in the lines out and a few new lines as well.

Yeah except port slots cost Doubloons, something not readily available for me. So trying to make do with out that option.

And need Mahan back so I can do my best to help my teams in upcoming Operation Dynamo, Need to get USN cruisers rolling again mostly with the CV rework happening so I can better provide AA escorts. And have some other ships on my list to add. So thinking of ways I might  accomplish this.

This looks a bit too  expensive  for relatively few port slots.

Have you tried normal containers? Iirc they drop port slots from time to time. In addition, in Honorable Service,  Mission 3, Task 6 you get 3 port slots in case you haven't completed that task

No he is right actually :Smile_teethhappy:. Mahan is scheduled to get a buff to her concealment, for a max of 6.6km. And with Op Dynamo around, it's not a bad choice as an AA platform.

It's about time; her old detection was abysmal!

Just as Operations ship, since some ships may not be the best for other game modes maybe, but that does not mean they are not a good choice for a particular Operation. Just like I am not that good in Cleveland compared to my other cruisers, but Cleveland has always served me well in Operations.

IKR!!!

 One Sims is worth seven Mahan for the AA part. Two Sims vs T5 planes.... gonna be like putting two Fox in the henhouse.

 I've been using my Fletcher Capt in Sims but seeing Dynamo coming back made me respec a spare 19 pointer just for the OP.

And as @warheart1992 said above, she should be better since her detection buff. She was just a very low point in the USN DD line for me; I think the only thing I liked about her was the mid torp launcher which was nice after Farragut but still not as good as Nicholas.

We're off topic, here.

Can you buy a ship with coal, sell it, keep the port slot, then buy it again and repeat???

I think once you buy it you get the port slot with it but after you sell it and want it back it wont give you the free port slot with it

Well, since it tells you in the arsenal that you already have a ship(if you do), and darkens the ship, and doesn't show a coupon(assuming you still have one), my guess is it won't buy a ship you already have.

BTW, how did you run out of port slots? I have three dozen empty bays in the garage, not to mention enough reserve slots to accommodate the enrollment of Annapolis.

Dynamo would seem to have Monaghan written all over it.

I have like 56 ships on hand in port and just ground out another line and have not won any extra Port slots from Wargaming recently.

 I agree. I think Mona's B hull is gonna be second only to Sims for AA effectiveness. Downside being she loses half her main battery in exchange.

I have 59, though a bunch of them are contest ships that come with a port slot. Before resources came along I always hit the more consumables choice for containers and it dropped slots from time to time. Sadly, in your case, I remember a patch or two ago they said containers would not be dropping slots any more, so apparently they finally got around to monetizing fleet size. Frankly, this seems short sighted. It is another barrier to entry for the newer players.

If you don't have any of the lower tier premium ships, there is a special in the premium shop right now.  I am showing the price of the Smith and Tachibana Lima for $1.25ea (CAN).  Each ship comes with a port slot.  That price is cheaper than buying just the port slots by themselves.  Although, with the doubloon deal, it may be more financially viable to buy the port slots using doubloons, if you don't mind collecting the extra doubloons for purchase of something else later on.

edit:  the doubloon deal is for players that have never purchased before, so it may not apply to most.

Well, it sounds like you're breaking new ground. It's up to you to fork over the coal and find out. Report back. You'll get at least one port slot out of it.Buy different ships from the arsenal and sell them, and you should get one for each.
