Congratulations WG, you found me a credit sink, a place where I can dump large parts of my 700m+ credits. That being, buying back all the T9s I sold to farm 50 steel on in a single coop match before selling them again at 50% credit loss.

seems like car buying math, buy it for 20 mill, sell it for 10 mill, and re buy it for 20 mill. and then sell it for 10 mill.

20 mill credits per ship for 50 steel,

Seems about how I roll, I approve. As soon as you throw hundreds of millions away, there will be a 1 Billion credit ship...

If you are sitting on 300 Million credits ( or more - I know people with a Billion ) it's a great way to convert them to something more useful in game.

Yeah, that's what I've been doing, went from over 100 mil to about 15 in a couple days. It's all good, though, I've got a number for credit grind missions going or upcoming, and the Santa crates that didn't have ships or gold in them all had some variation of credit flag. I'll just start stacking them on Musashi and be back up to a comfortable margin in a few weeks.

You could have held on to them until midday the 26th when the -15% is over. The -50% off is T2-T5. Of course, if you are in a clan with the full ship purchase discount building, you always have -15% off.

I rebought a ton of lower tier ships too. 

For the first time in years I'm actually in a position to think about credits.

Income redistribution.  No one needs that many credits.  Think of all us poor potatoes begging for Credits in parking lots.  Do your part.

Any particular reason to sell the ships off?  :cap_hmm:  I've opted to keep mine just because (and I still have 74 port slots left). :Smile_hiding:

I know you would, my friend.  Let us speak no more of it.

Um...why did you sell the ships in the first place?

'cos I don't like most of the T9s. I keep a few around I do like for when I need to play T9, but for the vast majority of the T9s in this game, I really don't enjoy them.

many players including myself sold their previous ships to help fund their new ships... thousands of games later they are backfilled...at least that was how I did it.

Lert!  This is awesome.   Now to go spend some of my 987m creds.....   (Fujin whoring ftw)

 

Edit:  First time I check the forum in months, and this gem appears.    Maybe I should return more?    (slaps face)  What am I thinking?

My ego requires a huge yacht with mega displacement and power to spare … naked women lying on my foredeck and feeding me sushi using only their tongues … 

But, I digress :)

 Only 16 ?  I have already done all the tier 9's (except for the two I have i port) and two of the tier 10's with all but the one I have for clan battles ! So have all of the rest of the tier 10's to go yet , sigh .  The ones I already did had me all worn out yesterday and I think I will take my time with the other tier 10's .

Why sell, you know you're going to go through all this again next year right?

16 tier 9s to buy back. 17 tier 10s, 1 tier 9 tech tree ship I'm keeping, 2 tier 9 premiums and 11 tier 8 prems to farm steel on.

I've completed all of those but 3 of the tier 9s to buy back.

Yep!

Why sell? Why keep them, cluttering up my port, ships I don't like? And what else am I going to spend my credits on?
