This is not a terrible thing, especially after WG offered her for free in the first phase of the RN event. I don't know of too many people who chose Gallant instead, unless they were hardcore DD mains. Others may have decided to splurge their sovereigns on Bert Dunkirk and/or arsenal crates for DD unlock chances. I repurchased her for the gold value.

It offers an easy bypass on the heavy credit/XP/Captain XP grinds, allowing you to complete them at a more leisurely pace. Frankly, with two directives coming out on the same day I am glad of this.

I love my Warspite, so I'm very pleased by this. I haven't been able to do any of the special ship missions so far.

Yay, a RN Directive ship mission I can finally complete!  I’m now glad I picked up the Warspite with sovereigns.

@Ensign_Cthulhu said that the special ship for the RN Missions in the PTS for this patch changed up, so the next Stage on Wed, Nov 28th *might* be different.

For those with Warspite:

 

Directive 1: Damage 25 ship modules, get 550 ribbons, Warspite mission (1 destroyed/defended/citadel/incapacitation ribbon) and get 30K spotting or 1500 free XP = bypass the 750K credit grind.

Directive 2: Get 3 citadel hits, 12 spotted ribbons, 7.4 million potential damage, destroy 5 ships, Warspite mission (sink 1 ship) = bypass 40K commander XP and 1 million credit grinds.

Directive 3: 7 set on fire/torpedo hits, 10 capture point-related ribbons, 150 secondary hits, 400 main battery hits, 300K damage, Warspite mission (50K damage) = bypass 1.5 million credit and 8500 base XP grinds.

Directive 4: earn 1 achievement*, break 55 modules, win 4 battles, cause 400K damage to ships, 25 fire/citadel/incapacitation ribbons, warspite mission (7000 cmdr XP) = bypass 1.5 million credit and 30K ship XP missions.

Some achievements (e.g. natural selection, for sinking four of own-ship type) are available in Scenarios, but having to do either 1.5M credits or 30K XP between Saturday night and Tuesday night is not that terrible.

Heyyy, that's awesome.

My Warspite has just been sitting there collecting rust so it'll be nice that the old gal can help me out a bit.

Still, would have been nice if Commonwealth ships could have been used. Haida would have been all over that.

Or at the very least the Gallant, considering that was the other Sovereign ship.

I have to be honest, with how much I like the Nelson and Warspite, by Bellerophon captain is almost level 10. I could see the Nelson being one too since its also 'free' like the Warspite was.

Based on what I saw in the PTS, that might be next week (along with Duke of York).

Got Warspite as soon as I could.  Awesome ship and a lot of fun.  And a free premium!

I was one of those who forked out their sovereigns to buy Warspite. Best thing I ever did. After moaning about not having funds to buy Mutsu, I found a ship I can be content with (Plus Warspite destroys Mutsu. Those torpedoes are useless)

Warspite is a stealth assassin. Get up to edge of concealment and then unleash the AP in a cruiser's belly and watch the tears roll. Stop firing, disappear in 20s, pop back out of stealth with the next volley. It's magic.

Provided of course that the tactical disposition allows for it. Still, tonight's Warspite task is simply to earn 7000 captain XP with no other specific achievements required. It will be a good opportunity to try out your suggestion. Now that I am on what for me is the last directive (I bought the 10 cheap guineas), I can afford to burn Draconic flags like there's no tomorrow.
