My mutant ability be be grinding coal....

Tonight, I join the Tier X fraternity.

11pm Tonight, NZ time, when the servers tick over to the new day... I just have to play 1 game to to win a crate and then just has to contain 400 coal....

and I can buy my Salem....

I would have bought it months ago but decided to buy the T9 Jean Bart... a decision I am still loving.... its a good ship.

But it is T9.

The Salem is TX or T10 .... I will be one of the X-men. :)

After that.... the minor ships... fleet fillers.... the T5 October Revolution... The T3 Charleston and T3 Campbeltown....

(I already own the other pre T6 ships) I did own the Campbeltown once.... :cap_like: I want her back again.

After that..... camos... signals, commanders and whatever else is going.... till they add another ship I like.

Congrats.  I went the other way and bought Salem with the old ship coupon instead of Jean Bart.  My first X ship.  Loving it so far.

 

Now is I can just crank enough Coal for Musashi before it goes.

You know what will happen, you'll be looking for 400 coal from that container and you'll get an SC instead....:Smile_veryhappy:

Welcome to the club.

I know it takes a bit longer for those from the Land of the Long White Cloud to get up to speed.  It must be the Shaky Isle that does it.

 

 

 

 

 

 

and we just won't mention the Bledisloe Cup or any thing about rugby since this is a forum about boats, and only boats.

You joke but that exact thing happened to me while grinding out the last of the coal of the Musashi.  AND it was my first ever ship from a super container,  the Monaghan.  Which gave me a snowflake for coal so I won both ways.

Lol sweet!

I ended up converting a few hundred steel to get Musashi, as I wasn't sure if I'd get to play any more games before the event ended.

Worked out, because I was able to play a couple more games over the holidays, and recouped my steel and then some by knocking off Musashi's snowflake.

Yeah, if I'd held out for another week, I would have gotten the Salem too, But I had this strange idea that WoWs would wake up and figure out they'd made a mistake and remove her... :) That is why I grinded coal to get the Salen should they remove THAT when they removed the Musashi. :) I'm an untrusting sod deep down! :)

Yeah right... its never happened to me before, when I go for resources, I always get at least 400 coal, many times, 800.... and a few times, 1200!

When I went for "take a chance" I won 18K coal... once.... I figured out that was a con and never went for that option again (read above about being untrusting!)

within 4 days, I won 2 ships from free Santa crates, the FIRST time EVER since I started playing WoWs three years ago (on the EU server)

Well, strange as it seems, I used to be a short story writer so I might revive the hobby when I get the Salem... a war time story about bravery death and.... the Salem... :)


And to everyone else. Thanks. I used the multi quote for the first time ever and got horribly.... thought I'd better leave it at what I had rather than push my lujk any further. :)

Sadly.... I goofed. I am only human.

I thought I only needed 160,000 coal with coupon... but really, as i just found out when I did my sums the right way, I need 180,000 coal. :(

I am still just under 20K short. I'm not yet one of the X men. :(

Congrats!  I think Salem is HELLA GOOD.

She was my first (and only) tier 10 ship.  I chose her over the Jean Bart because reasons.  Apparently they were good reasons, too.

I am only approximately forever amount of xp away from the CurryWurst.  Thankfully WG buffed the Freddie G since I'm going to be playing her for a while.  It's still gonna be a grind though.

Keep grinding; you'll get there. 

Just remember - when you do, you will be in a very interesting situation. ON THE ONE HAND, you will never be bottom-tier again; ON THE OTHER HAND, you will have no right to complain about always being in a Tier X battle. (Your lamentations will now be along the lines of not having Tier VIII ships to beat up on.:cap_haloween:)

Hold right up. Do you have the Musashi? If not, PICK THAT. It's literally going away in a few days. and It's one of the best ships in the game tier for tier. 

I wouldn't worry about playing the Salem man. The Des is just way better when you grind her up.

Against that, the service costs of the Salem with her native permacamo are stupidly low and the Musashi can't do clan battles or (if we see it again) Tier 10 Ranked.

I get the feeling that if OP does not already have the Musashi, they would have considered it before springing for the JB with coal.

Does Salem have additional hidden credit bonus?

I would grind up the tree to DM and get Musashi w coal.  Even wo -50% repair cost Musashi still makes credits similar to or more than DM w premium camo.  Granted new CV rework may not be kind to Musashi.  Also DM has special upgrade!!

I’m wondering to get Salem or JB myself haha.

The current system of CV, is not kind to Musashi, nor Yamato. So nothing new there.

EDIT: As for your Salem question, I don't know if it has hidden credit earnings, but I do know, that it gets a reduction in post battle service cost of 50% bringing it down to 90,000 before camo is applied, and if I recall it's camo also has the -50% post battle service cost, like all tier 10s, bringing it down to 45,000 credits, before ammo and consumables apply, thus making it a very cheap tier 10 to play. Plus a +20% credit bonus, on Camo as well. So, profits will be far greater playing Salem over any tier 10 tech tree ship.

Really? And with the rework dropping in 0.8.0 then having virtually no AA becomes a liability... why do you think they are removing here... :)
