Just noticed that Steam has some specials going on.  Smith, Marblehead, Tachibana, Huanghe, Yubari, Indianapolis and a few others all on sale.

Does anyone know what the compensation is if you get one of these and already have the ship in port?  I'm specifically curious about the Indianapolis?  Tier 7 Cruisers seem to go for around 5000 doubloons.  I know WG was trying to avoid the "buy ships you have to get cheap doubloons" stuff so wanted to confirm before I spent anything.

 

If anyone is familiar, I'd appreciate the information.  Thanks!

If memory serves, you get the dollar value in doubloons. If, say, Tirpitz were on sale for 1$ you would get 1$ of doubloons for a duplicate.

It should actually tell you when you go into the purchase, but I don't do steam, so....can't say.

Didn't WG "fix" the feature where a player buys a Premium Ship that they already own at a discount and receives a full value in doubloons, long time ago? AFAIK, you'll only get the appropriately discounted value of doubloons now. :fish_book:

But I could be wrong, so please don't quote me on that. Seriously, lol. :Smile_hiding:

From what I could gather. It seems you get doubloons, but a percentage deduction based off any deals. 

I dont see anything on the Steam webpage about duplicate compensation, but Im not logged in.

Id ask @Kami or @Radar_X for confirmation, exact details.

Also you only get it on accounts that were started on steam. You cannot use an existing WG account to purchase them.

This is a key point ... there is a great deal going on for a Haida pack .... DD, Comander, Port Slot, 2k Doubs, 50 ea of a bunch of flags, for 75% off! ... now that's a SALE!  BUT you can only get it on a Steam account ... you can't even gift those to plain WG accounts.  Read the fine print ...

The reddit post just says that premium shop discounts will result in less doubloons.  I recall that it was a Steam deal the really triggered that change in policy but it still doesn't state that Steam deals count in all that.

The Indianapolis deal is still pretty good even if you don't get full value, seeing as 2500 doubloons is included.   So that's like 12 bucks for 2500 doubloons, a lot of flags, and whatever compensation the ship grants.

I would really like confirmation that ANY discounted deals, regardless if source, will result in reduced doubloon compensation.  Steam does not list anything about it that I can see.

In theory that amount of Dubs would cost $26.32 Canadian but is on sale for $16.74  (Can).   (Steam says its a 6 point)

There were 2 Steam sales last year, one in the premium shop and one for Steam users only. After a lot of people took advantage of these for the doubloons, WG announced the "discounted" doubloon policy you cited. 

However, Steam came out with a "Starter Pack" with the same ships months after the announcement and I still got full doubloon value. Not sure if that was an oversight, but I have all of the discounted Steam offerings and can't buy them again is I can't test it this time.

My account isnt attached to Steam. So I couldnt really test it, and I dont want to buy an Indy again. 

Also, I think the @ system doesnt work properly when dealing with moderators.
