Not sure about the date but the price is 1 million free xp.

Wonder how much of a boost towards that the CV Rework will give me in free EXP.

WG employed their own version of 'quantitative easing' in regards to FXP. It worked.

Probably 8.0 release date to backfill the Kron and Mitsi.

I tend to agree.

I won't be able to acquire her on release as I will have depleted my Free XP on Snowflakes, but it will be the next target ship.

What’s the deal with the snowflakes?

Play one winning battle with every tech tree ship in your port from T5 to T8 - get a handful of coal.

Premium ships T2 to T7 - get some coal.

TT ships at 9 and 10 and premiums at 8-10 get steel.

So people have been free-XPing their way up the line like crazy to get into the steel bracket.

For me, I'm accumulating Free XP to get me over the line if I run out of time.  I'm actually fairly close finishing several grinds, I've just focused on Ship purchases vs Upgrades.  I'll likely be farming credits all Winter to outfit all these new ships.

I have a  habit of finishing multiple grinds at once, which leaves me strapped for cash. As it is, I've ground up the entire French cruiser line up to reach T5 without even filling their upgrade slots, and I've taken Musashi into co-op in every single battle I've fought in her without any module slots either. I'm keeping a running tally of costs for every non-premium ship, and if you can stand to run the sub-T5's with their slots empty it's not hard to win their cost back.

I understand that.  I have been grinding all lines in parallel since I started playing.  I focused down a bit to push a few lines to Tier X so that I would have some exposure to all levels.  I had ground the USN BBs to Colorado, but I bought Alabama and Missouri.  I figured that was good enough.  Then I decided that I wanted Montana, so I had to grind through the silver Tier 8 & 9 ships.  (I was pleasantly surprise with Iowa.)

Normally, I use the Free XP to avoid the stock ships and then grind to the next ship.  Due to the nature of the current Event, I figured I get a better return on buying the ships.  Therefore, I'm deferring the Upgrade and improved Modules.  I did this with Grozovoi in the Anniversary window for the Supercontainer.  Not my normal plan, but another thousand Steel is a significant amount toward the next Steel ship (also the first for me as I haven't had enough to get any Steel ship before).

Several of these ships will see Co-op as I earn the coin to improve them.  I play most modes (no Clan Battles as that is not a priority for the Clan).

Hey everyone! I was wondering if anyone had any insight on when the Alaska would arrive and how we would be able to get it in game? Would it be free xp or steel or coal? Thanks!

The fun part is Azuma is already in the works to help counter Alaska :Smile_trollface:

But then again, 406mm+ Battleships are also a hard counter and more abundant as a threat to AK :Smile_glasses:

... To include Midway.

Alaska will be fine dealing with the current Midway. Just needs to spec into BFT and fly the aa flag.

They cry about everything, voted for Clinton, and eat tide pods.
