Well 

 

 

 I still don't know what I feel about this 

 

I'm OK with the re grind but I wish we had scenarios to play at different tiers having to sell the ships well...

Are the free 10,000 points gone? I didn’t see any mention of them, and the further info link didn’t work. Also, is the requirement for the one-time bonus now moved up to 5 T10s as well? Do T10 premiums like Stalingrad count toward the requirements?

If you truly want higher tier players to play lower tier ships, would it not make more sense to make players earn the most points in lower tier ships instead of higher ones? Plus, since you can only get points for the first victory, players will just rush the lower tiers and go back to the higher ones. Could you at least be honest why you included this system instead of making up [edited] claims?

@Femennenly

There seems to be some inconsistencies with what you posted and what is on the website.

You stated:

All consumables (flags/camos/etc) and module upgrades will be demounted and placed in the inventory.

The website says:  

...the ships and all modules will be sold for half their their cost.

So what you are saying is to game the system by getting enough XP on it to skip the first ship in the tree?

Also will all events now include t1-4 research ships?  Say I reset my french cruiser line but an event comes along that is only eligible for t6-10 ships will ships from a line I reset be eligible for the event if they are only like t2?  Seems kind of like a huge waste of time if you can't part take in events after resetting your line.

The other thing that bugs me is peeing away so much hard earned XP just to research a branch again.

The TL:DR is meant to provide the bare bone instructions and explanations to make the information less confronting but provide the bare necessities on upcoming info.

But yes the 10,000 kick off for the first reset is still there. 

I've updated the link :)

Phraseology issue, fixing :)

Why half? Why not full price?  Also If i revert a ship back to stock will the upgrade modules remain in my inventory?

I thought this idea was given a well-deserved early grave after the outcry from the last time it was mentioned.
What the <bleep>?!?

interesting to see that, even thought the community shot this down as the NTC, WGs perfectly happy to just repackage it and throw it at us again......-_-

probably a case of WG thought it was such a great idea that by the time they told us about it they had already poured to many resources into making it happen, so now we have to deal with them slapping new labels on what is essentially the same thing as they try to force feed it to us.

Anyone know if you start in season 1 and say have 20k points at end of season do you get to keep them or does it reset?

You all are [edited] about this... and yet you think subs are a good idea. Its just another way for Wg to hide ships behind a collectable like steel and ranked tokens

Uh, no thank you. Why not just offer smaller rewards for playing a number of battle's a week on lower tier ship's?

Because then you wouldn't convert free xp to obtain modules or use money for other things along the way, like you did the first time.

They don't care if you PLAY. They care if you PAY.

Otherwise, your idea makes perfect sense.

Probably because they stand to make money with this and no longer care about what the community thinks.

I get it now.  UPGRADES will be demounted, but Modules will be sold.

Ships when being sold back have always been returned at half price. Upgrade modules will be sold at half their purchase price too.

It was. Nobody likes the idea. But WG still thinks it's a good plan to instigate it. Because WeeGee logic!

The original idea saw outcry about the rewards/benefits that would come it (that is buff to ships). This has been completely removed for the new Research Bureau.

Your research points will remain between seasons and not expire.

It would not be so bad if at least they admitted their intent. I could even respect that, but the flimsy justification is just pathetic.

Not alot of people think subs are a good idea either. WG has to many problems with the game already that still need solving to be throwing and entirely new class that requires a major game overhaul to operate into the game right now. But of course they are gonna do it anyway and well be stuck with the consequences. -_-

They never have. They have never given us a full up, honest explanation for anything.
