I wanted to know how much it would cost for doubloons to convert my elite XP to free XP. After double checking my math the total was $1004.07. Now I have the $4.07 on hand:Smile_great:. If anyone has a $1000 laying around they're looking to give away, well......  I'm sure this is common to players with a lot of battles under their belt.

I depleted my FXP making my 1st 19pt commander. If the need arises I can purchase the amount of doubloons to make conversion.

You can have some very nice interest rates on a saving account, I have seen 2.35%, 2.4% and even 2.5%.

So.

To make 1k USD a month at 2.5% APY you would need to deposit 480k USD.  Assuming interest rate don't change (go down).  This is a saving account, not a CD.  So once you get your 1k, you can move your money back to where ever.

If you can wait a couple of days, FXP conversion is 35:1, so you only need $717.20 (possibly less, since one of the last daily rewards is 50 doubloons.)

It would cost me $3334.91 to convert all of my ship XP at the current rate. This quite succinctly explains why I never convert XP.

OK...so I know they need to make money here but what the hell is this for?  No one is going to spend $8,000 to convert so why do they set it up so that you keep getting it as if it means anything?  Funny how everytime I mention that this game costs money there are always a few troll mocking saying that it's free to play.   Sure its free  yeah sure. lemme know when I can convert for free.

Micro transactions.

Lots of little transactions.  4.15 USD for two days of premium time on a weekend here.  1.99 USD for Tachibana Lima there...

How long to grow $4.07 to $1004.07?

You think I could get my interest paid in doubloons?

Somewhere in the 23rd century with today's interest rates :Smile_sad:

This.

And say that you are 225k FXP short on getting Azuma or Alaska. $30 is not a big deal for you to spend, so a 1:35 FXP sale gets you 227k FXP and you don't have to wait to get the ship you want. Doesn't matter if you have $8000 worth of ESXP that you can convert, that $30 gets you the ship you want now, instead of later. Hence the FXP conversion for those who don't want to wait.

You know, I never could understand why they made it so expensive to convert XP to Free XP. I would do it all the time if it was around half the price it is now and would have never let tens of millions of ship xp accumulate. I don't even pay it any mind when they do a conversion sale because it is still too high. All the rhetoric about players getting to high tiers too soon is just nonsense since you can buy a high tier premium ship any time and with the free tech tree ship events, you can skip entire tiers of grinding.. The USSR BBs for instance, you spend enough or earn enough crates and you can jump right into a tier 8 BB, fully upgraded, without ever having played any ships of that line.. Because Free XP is tough for me to grind right now and conversion is so expensive, I just ignore that I have it. Don't care about the Free XP ships any more and only use it to unlock tier 10 ships without grinding the tier 9s since I don't play either tier. Just keep the tier 10s for special events, just too expensive to play and not particularly fun or interesting.

Having a reserve of elite XP on hand is a good thing. With that being said, it would also be nice to be able to use the excessive elite XP for something.

If you put $480,000 into a regular savings account, I'm going to strike you.

It is already.  You just need to take one more step to convert green "doubloons" into pixel doubloons.
