Even though the reset US DD line took a few days longer to complete than I expected I decided to try resetting another line. 

I chose the entire US CL/CA line. The Free XP I built up from the first reset carried me to the Dallas and New Orleans. Buying 250k Free XP for 12500 Research Tokens is great.

Be bored all you want Knuckleheads!

Doesn't that defeat the purpose though? Isn't the whole point to save the research points?

That's two resets, isn't it? Or had you not completed the USN lines?

I don't get the point of spending RPs on stuff other than ships?

Yeah there is no way that I spending my RB points on FXP.  I am EARNING FXP during regrinds, but that's just a passive thing along the way.  The goal is only the ship as far as I am concerned.

I look at the FXP thing as a currency dump.  We have had them in the past in many events.  You got all the things you could but you have some left, instead of losing it, you get at least "something" for it.  Some flags or whatever.

I think the FXP exchange is that currency dump, if you have enough left over from several regrinds and are not doing the RB again in the future.

Oh, I see why it's offered as an option.  I don't see using it this early in the game.

I can't see doing it for any other reason than buying the RB ships?   Unless you really have some kind of wood for a FXP ship, it seems pointless?

Reset KM BB, RN CL, and French BB

Got to Gneis fully upgraded waiting for baby ranked, and then Bis for the next baby ranked

RN CL on Neptune at 100K having fun. I'll reset this one in a week or so I guess

French BB on Richelieu at 90 K and having fun - though Alsace I didn't play well but we'll see this time around.

So in a few more weeks I should have 50K of those whatever points.

No it doesn't defeat the purpose. If one wants to save the Research Tokens they are perfectly welcome to. The Armory offers 250k Free XP for 12500 Research Tokens and I chose to use that.

That's great I hope it works out as well for you as my choice is for me.

I had the entire US CL/CA line(s) to tier 10. The point is that how I use the Research Tokens is up to me and I choose to use them to buy Free XP. Next season I may save them.

That is your choice and I am earning Free XP from all 187 ships I have. The RB will be in place for a few seasons and I do plan doing the RB again and hopefully with another line or two completed.

Yes it is an option (a choice) and I choose to use it.

Those RB ships will likely be in Santa Boxes later on. I might stack some wood for the Playmate of the Year and I will use MY Free XP any way I choose.

No argument there.  I'm asking why you did it that way.  Santa crates makes a little sense...

And I also asked if that wasn't two resets since you now have two sets of T6-10 ships to earn RP on.  Did you reset the CL line while the T2-5 ships were gone from the CA reset? (or vice versa).  Or did they make you research them first, so that the line was complete on the CL reset?

that RB to fxp conversion seem way off to me specially if you run premium.  (if you dont it may be better i guess) 

on tier 8 of my third lap to the DM also did the Worcester with the fxp earned from them i fxp /play up the  haragumo . 

Have to say the lower tiers absolutely suck cause of carriers and can see why new players would get discouraged . facing 4 /6 cv in a omaha /phoenix is brutal cant imagine in a BB.

I think the key to a line reset is to reset a line you like playing at T8. T6 and T7 you can almost always do in Operations, but T8 probably has to be ground some in Randoms, and of course, you will be constantly uptiered to T10. Edinburgh might have been able to hold her own two years ago when I played it last, but now she is hopelessly outclassed because of constantly facing T10s, especially in this new meta with BrokeLinks everywhere.

I think the next line I will reset will be the French BBs, a very strong line in which all T6-10 BBs are solid and fun to play.. The Richeliu is fine at T8.

I had the CL/CA line active from the Omaha through both tier 10s. I reset the whole line which includes the split. My Free XP rebuild the line to the tier 6 Dallas and the tier 7 New Orleans. So far I have earned 1500 Research Tokens from the 2 tier 6s and the tier 7.

Either you're explaining what you're doing weirdly, or you just did the XP equivalent of buying a $20 gift card for $50.

There's some logic there, but in all honesty, I find constant grinding in Ops to be rather boring.  This isn't a dig on Operations.  I regularly play them, but not back to back to back to back ad infinitum.  Maybe WG would change up how they decide what operation is played at any given instant, it'd be less boring. 

For example, maybe this week could be a random tier 6 operation, and the following week could be a random tier 7 operation (except that there's only 1 tier 7 operation available at the moment).  Also, this idea wouldn't work very well with limitations on nation or ship type.

Another way to randomize thing would be to change the operations rotation from a weekly rotation to a daily rotation. This wouldn't require any change to national or ship type limitations, since you'd know what the Op of the day was.

^^ This ^^  if you were just in search of free XP, then why spend it to speed up the line, then buy free XP with it? You’re a dog chasing your own tail.

I reset US DD line, FXP'd to Farrag for ranked, made back all the FXP and then some, and got Mahan.  Have yet to play it for benson, too much going on.  I'd have to agree that wasting the points on FXP is the most backwards thing you can do, especially if you're using it to research ships you just took a massive loss on.

If you're keen on that type of stuff, I've got an investment for you where $10k only pays you back $3k -- it's a great deal.

As people above said.....you are spending free xp to get tokens faster, all so that you can buy more free xp with said tokens?

Unless your goal is to flush free xp and credits down the drain, I am not certain why you would do this.  You'll never come out ahead I don't think.

Well as far as I am concerned that is my business and mine alone.

But I don't think that's what he's been doing, If he actually grinds out each ship in the line (plays enough to unlock the next ship in line) then he's always going to be ahead, no FXP need to be used at all.
So when he cashes in those RB tokens, he's only gaining FXP, there is no loss.

Poor spelling! 

What evidence do you have to support that assertion?

Most likely none at all.

Using Research Tokens for free exp?

Isn't that counter productive?

.....

One word of advice:

Do not reset a battleship line. Too expensive exp wise and a slow grind.
