Hi WoWs,

Please continue with this tradition you guys have from previous year. With the announcement of 2 new lines, the RN CV and the Russian bb, that is like t4/t5/t6/t7/t8/t9/t10 CV, t3/t4/t5/t6/t7/t8/t9/t10 BB, I am sure players willingly spend doubloons to hoard as many port slots as possible.

WoWs, this is a win/win situation for you. Players will spend $$$$$ to buy doubloon in order to buy port slot not to mention that apart from the 2 new lines, there are many more ships that players will acquire in the future. I am sure I will try and get at least 50 to 60 new port slots.

 

regards,

but yes, the port slots haven't gone on sale in a while.

Are they still showing up in containers?  The commander bunks seem to have gone away from the flag and camo containers...

Every port slot sale, except for the one last Christmas, has been up to 50% off. Hopefully this Christmas, they will do another 75% off port slot sale. Not only are RU BBs & UK CVs coming, but we can expect at least one of the following this year as well; French DDs, Italian CL/CAs, and after Italian cruisers, then maybe Italian DDs or BBs.

Port slots were on sale last month as 50% IIRC.

Yes, Port Slots and Cmdr Slots are no longer showing up in daily containers. When they have events that give away tech tree ships, French BBs, UK DDs, T6 ships in Mighty Prinz, the tech tree ship comes with a port slot. Same for premium ships you win.

the only people who were tired of them were the selfish people who had already got hundreds of them and who didn't want to afford OTHER people the chance to have the same, so moaned like little brats at every opportunity.

Port slots were on sale for a few days around thanksgiving, I got 30 at that time.

That was 50% sale, and it was the same sale as previous around the same time. So, with the tradition, the next port slot sale is right about now. Last year I went from 75 to this year 152.

 

NOT to also mention that in preparation for the snowflake events, lots of player buying back t9 ships, so there you go WoWs, port slots needed. And seriously, players going to be broke in credits as well, so someone right now is eyeing at the Admiral Bounty with 60 mils credit for sure.

Come'on WoWs, Just Do It!

It is the reserve captain slot, not port slot.

for me, I need 7 port slots for the IJN dd/cruiser, 6 port slots for RN bb/dd, 8 port slots for French bb/dd, 7 port slots for Russian dd, 6 port slots for USN bb/dd and now I am lost count ..... that is for finish off last year grinding.

For new year grind, I am not so sure now

 

Edit:

Not to mention holding on coal/FXP and waiting for Alaska/JB

Steel for Flint/Black/Stallingrad

That is 5 extra premium ships on waiting, and any other low tier that WoWs like to put on sale eg campbeltown, and after today update t3 cruiser thingy? I am not spending until the Alaska price announce

I have like 40 slots of the 50 left I bought last Christmas. I got some in containers before they were removed. The tech tree ships they gave away had port slots, so they didn't use any. I'm up to T7 on almost every line, so I should be able to finish lines and probably do another full line with the ones that I have.

This x1000.

 

Was getting bad enough that I had more reserve slots than ships, and currently sitting on 88 empty reserve slots.

Actually, they were 50% off just less than a month ago.  But i missed it so hope it won't be too long of a wait.

Maybe if you spent more time doing your real job you might get some real money bonuses from work to buy port slots :Smile_facepalm:, instead your surfing the forum all day on company time, complaining how broke you are.

My God man I gifted you the most powerful DD in the game and have not seen you play it in months, use that ship to win some port slots in crates if your that hard up for cash :Smile_veryhappy:.

I saw the notice but can't figure out where to buy them.  I thought it would be in the tiny type on the right side of the carousel where the number of ships and port slots is posted, but, no.  I went into the premium shop and scanned all of the pages, especially the Specials page, to no avail.

 

And, as long as I'm posting, is there any down side of selling all of the A hulls I've been accumulating in my inventory?  I can't think of any but I'm not the brightest bulb in the pack.

Should be a very small text link down at bottom right of UI just above your ship carousel right below the text that shows you how many slots you have available.   Labeled " Buy Slots"  with a dubloon icon.. Its very small.

What I really want is more commander slots, I mean I am not really sure how many I have atm but it must be at least 200 surplus or so by now...... Seriously though why do I have so many of these useless things, it's not like WoT where each tank has 3-7 crew members.

Aha!  Found it.  I needed to scroll the carousel all the way to the right to uncover it.  It's been a year since my last slot purchase and I was remembering it just under the Ships: / Vacant Slots: labels which are there all of the time.

I whinged about it last year sometime in an open letter to Red Oak Victory's supply officer.  I had over a hundred at the time.
