Well we kind of figured 1 million was the goal since Wargaming mentioned it before. The upside to the carrier rework is I have that easily on my fleet of carriers and will get it all in free xp when the rework goes live in January.

Maybe, but WG has been pretty bad about changing things last minute over the past year. Salem’s camo bonuses are a prime example. Until release she had normal T5-8 bonuses, then bam T10 camo bonuses at release.

until it actually arrives in the tech-tree area and/or the arsenal or that WG actually make the statement publicly for ALL to see, it is subject to change, be it from volume of people moaning on forum (vs the prior standard of 750K FXP), it could be nothing more than WG testing the waters for reaction, by letting slip a provisional value. 

 

I just see Radar_X post

If you're gonna offer the ships for free XP, why not make them available in the Premium shop?  The end result is the same: Cash for Gold to convert to XP, or Cash to buy the ship outright.

What's the difference?

People earn free xp without spending any cash at all, that's the difference.

Dear players!

American cruiser tier IХ Alaska is ready, will be available soon in game for 1 000 000 Free EXP.

The ship has large dimensions, boasts an extensive pool of HP, carries powerful 305 mm artillery and efficient AA defenses, and is equipped with a very diverse set of consumables. Alaska excels at destroying cruisers at mid-range distances.

Please note that the information in the Development Blog is preliminary.

Someone who has played 0 matches can buy a premium ship. People actually had to play to earn the XP to convert

I think he is asking why they don't add it to the Premium Shop as well as offering in Arsenal. Mohawk makes a very good point, it seems silly not to just offer it for cash as well. 

I missed Matt's response until after I posted.. I don't think it matters Matt, who cares? Right now someone can buy tier 8s and play with zero games. Tier 9 is no different, you are still going to be spending time fighting tier 10s... It is an arbitrary thing to do and does not prevent noobs from ending up in high tier matches. It is ridiculous.

They did it with the Jean Bart then shortly after threw out coupons to non-whales (but that's another matter entirely.)
