So is there any other way to get crowns besides completing the mission directives in the event? B/c as i see right now, i will only be able to collect 60 more, which will give me the No.2 Bundle. But to get the last bundle (already have enough florins for both) i will have to buy more crowns at 2,500 doubloons for only 50? Seems kindof steep.

Odd. I am one crown and 500-ish florins short of Furious. I know my problem is that my gameplay time and choices don't often allow me to finish the Dailies, and that's on me, but personally I would rather grind out the T8 ship when she goes live than pay a single RL cent to obtain her.

From what I understand from other posts, you can get Hermes and Furious free by doing most of the dailies and all the directives they give you.  You will be on your way, but just short of getting the Implacable if you do everything and buy the Exeter.  Unless they increase the values in future directives or something, you will be just short of getting Implacable free and will need to buy containers for the remainder (as many as 14 I have heard).

Seems to be a slight change from the way they have done things previously.  They really should state up front that Implacable can or can not be obtained for free, instead of making it "appear" that it can and then not.

I never can get a win in the Exeter. At T5 i have been on nothing but potato teams and everyone sailing broadside to everything and charging in. I think im 0-7 right now in that ship...lol no matter what i do, the team im on just melts.

If memory serves you should be able to exchange florins for crowns during the final week of the patch.

I believe it is the other way around, Crowns for florins. 1 crown -> 8 florins

Well sure.  But, winning isn’t a requirement for the Exeter only missions.  Winning may speed them up a bit but they all look pretty easy.  And if winning is a requirement I’m missing, then CoOp should clear them out fast.

I think it was more of a general complaint.

Is there another set of directives for next week? If so that’s another 80 or so

Win = Earn is what I am assuming.

OP is talking about earning currency.  You can’t go 0-7 because of potatoes and not earn the currency without being AFK.

OPs complaint seemed pretty specific?  Shrug...?

I only the second series in the dailies require wins.  When in a pinch, switch to COOP.  Of course, then you could find out if you are the potato or not.

As far as the dailies, here's a suggestion...do the wins/modules/ribbons/fires/damage in co-op, and if you need any more, just run the credit ones in randoms, should be doable in about an hour and a half.

Doubloons can be exchanged for crowns in the RN Navy section of Arsenal. Think rate is like 2k dubs for 50 crowns.

It's a new twist on previous formulas … 

The first 2 bundles are free - the Implacable costs 6,000 doubloons or similar in containers, as you say

You either don't bother with the last bundle or pay the above

Well i just bought x40 air supply containers. Dont think i will spend money to get 6000k doubloons for last one. Hell with thr amount of florins i have right now, i might just hold on to them. I have 5k+ from the air supply containers and might just hold on to them to get over 27mil credits when they cash out over end of the month.

You shouldn't have to

The containers are basically to sell the other 4 ships and came at a slightly higher cost for that reason … 

Edit: After 12 containers you should eventually get all the florins and crowns you need, even if you miss a few dailies

After 12 containers … I think that's the right amount, even though a lot will buy x20 or go in 3 stacks of x5 for convenience

Once you get the ship(s) you're looking for you can do the remainder in doubloons in game - approx. 4 containers/2k doubloons?

Nothing is ever simple with WG o7

It's a bit of a trap - you may not "need" it and you have to consider if you even "want" it lol
