If you want Implacable you'll need to spend some money.  Calculations show that even getting 100% of the free Florins available by playing you still won't have enough to get Implacable.

 

I am pondering the option myself, but haven't decided.

Is it even possible to get the 3rd one just from grinding? I had heard (but haven't tried to figure it out for myself) that the 3rd can't be obtained through what they give from regular play.

Surely legally wg has to tell us it needs cash to win the pack? and not just through general grinding?

Im not sure about this buying air drops for cash now..................hmmmmmmmmmmmmmm.

I think I bought 4 batches of 5 and still 600 short...so I should be able to get it by about Sunday...another of mine figured after buying 5 that he should just have to buy 1 more to get it I think...

Can you quote that law? Nothing is being taken from you if you don't win it as you didn't have it before so I can't see a legal precedence for that.

There's also (I do believe) certain CCs that give out Air Supply containers in their streams & other out of game ways of obtaining them (such as participating in the Maskerado event) that don't require cash when added to the in game methods of obtaining the needed resources.

Edit: Also the ship is a tree ship that can be acquired in game through play w/no cash at all needed to obtain it...the packs just give you early access.

Has anyone crunched the numbers as to how many crates you would have to buy to get Implacable?

If you have 6,000 doubloons you can buy 150 crowns then in the 4th week convert them into 1,200 florins. Added to what you get for free you will have enough.

You can get 1,100 florins from fly strike win + 100 florins from daily shipments + 1,200 florins from daily missions + 480 florins converted from the 60 extra crowns (you can get 360 crowns for free but you only need 300)  = 2,880 florins

2,880 + 1,200 (from the doubloons) = 4,080 florins. 

You only need 3,900 florins for all 3 carriers.

So i could grind for 30 years towards the third pack and never get enough currency to buy said pack.

I would like the info upfront if the grind requires cash its called common sense.

If you prefer to spend money.

You can get 1,100 florins from fly strike win + 100 florins from daily shipments + 1,200 florins from daily missions + 480 florins converted from the 60 extra crowns (you can get 360 crowns for free but you only need 300)  = 2,880 florins

buy 11 air supply  boxes and you will have enough florins: 2,880 + 1,100 = 3,980

or

buy 7 air supply  boxes and spend 2,000 doubloons (50 crowns convert to 400 florins) and you will have enough florins: 2,880 + 700 + 400 = 3,980

or

buy 3 air supply  boxes and spend 4,000 doubloons (100 crowns convert to 800 florins)and you will have enough florins: 2,880 + 300 + 8000 = 3,980

And yes I have too much free time

The weather is finally getting nice around here.

Think I'll try fixing up the house for a while.  If the weather closes in -- this game will still be there.

Money??  We can always Free XP it later.  Not like it's the Imperator Nicholai..

But I'll spreadsheet the cost of T6-T8 CV == 158000XP or around $31 US...   Less what you have on the T6... so if you want it, and you have the T6...   that's what it'd cost.

If you can cheaper it down with drops, or just grind it if you've been using the T6 a lot..

How much XP do you have on the T6??

Well, if the T8 takes 484k of FXP to go to T10...which since that's what I can get back from Midway I think that's what it costs...

converting at 25-1 is almost 90 bucks worth of doubloons...so I figured going for the T8 if I can get it Sunday and grind the exp out and save the FXP...I still break even roughly...

$20 is definitely a must to get the t8 CV <-- this is early access option + other freebies

 

Or you can play t6 now, stock up the XP needed for t8 and then wait till the brit CV officially available and purchase it <-- this is a free to no pay option

Straight would require a lack of people wasting everybody else's time on the forums w/comments of how WG needs to have some kind of disclaimer added in or give them everything for free.

Still waiting for that law/legal precedence. That would straighten things out nicely as that was the comment that actually started all of this. (actually as that law/legal precedence doesn't exist just an end to annoying comments like that in the forums would be "straight" on my accounts).

Out of curiosity Abyss, where in the states are you from? You use some very odd slang/terminology Ive never seen before.

Like, "Should I bung $20"; "Dont post on my gear".

Ive never seen anyone use those terms in that manner.

To me this sounds like a question of 'is it worth it?'. Having gone and spent the cash to do it myself and tried Implacable out (in co-op at least), I feel that if you are into CVs, Implacable is likely worth it. The planes are indeed tanky, the gimmick bombing runs that were so underwhelming on Hermes and Furious are actually reasonably good and reliable at starting fires, the torps are still 'eh' but usable, and the rockets are almost as good as rockets used to be for other CVs, though still fairly low on reliable damage numbers. There are downsides of course, low plane 'capacity' and slow regen rate mean that if you do start getting shot down, it hurts a lot, Implacable herself is a big visible target if you get caught out and if things get to secondary range, don't count on them doing anything useful to help. Overall, I actually like the ugly British tub, despite my experiences with the other two.

That's my short version review, hopefully it helps you decide if it's worth it to you, as that is where the final decision lies
