Finished directive 4 and since I had all the tier 6 ships It gave me 6k doubloons. Do I use them to get the Exeter with some to spare o do I use them to get a Wichita which would cost an additional 5,800 making it very cheap? TIA

Exeter is fun. I loved it. And it'd be a good trainer for when the Royal Navy heavy cruiser line tech-tree split is released. I think it's coming Q1 or Q2  of 2020?

It has awesome AA.

Exeter would be a fun buy.  Another question is, should you use the 25% discount coupon that doesn't refresh until mid-March (IIRC)?

I am waiting for a 50%-off permacamo sale to lash out and equip the ships I kept because I love to play them. I also want to wait and see what (if anything) is up for grabs in the Christmas event, because I've already gone through the head-desking situation of buying permacamos for beloved ships only for WG to give out free ones (Dallas, Icarus and ALMOST Nurnberg last year).

I used my recent 30% off anniversary coupon to pick up a ton of doubloons, and I’m also waiting for a sale on permacamos before I spend too many of them. IIRC, there were quite a few sales on camos around Thanksgiving and New Years last year.

Now if WG would only offer up the historical camo for Bismarck as a stand-alone item... I’d pick that one up in heartbeat.

I usually pay for month to month premium with extra doubloons. Saves some cash.

I would wait a few months for the holidays. The past three years, tech tree premium ships have been on sale for 30-50% off doubloon purchase. I am hopeful that they do the same thing with Armory this time around although they may not. If you have no pressing need to use your doubloons, hang on to them a bit longer and see what you can get on sale. If they don't do this, you are out nothing and can buy what you like with them using the coupon.

As @Taylor3006 says, hold out for the Christmas deals.

Wichita is a copy pasta (better stealth, less hitting power) Baltimore. 

Exeter is a nice little heavy cruiser, well placed at her tier, and would be well worth the purchase.

Anyone know if the 25% off coupon might stack with a possible Christmas sale?

Generally, no discount stacks.  Doesn't mean it won't, but don't bet on it.

Waiting for Christmas means you may have another way to get the ship besides dubs.

Sometimes there are ships that are on sale even for doubloons.  What for one of those sales, and if a ship you like comes on sale, get it then.

The 25% off coupon is restricted to the armory, so I would expect not.

Pro: There's never a rush to spend doubloons ... only a perceived need (i.e. want)

Con: Doubloons earn even less interest than money in a bank savings account

The question I'd ask myself is "... will I (you ) play it enough to justify spending the doubs?".  When I had one or a few Premiums, I played it (them) a lot.  Now many sit in port more than some tech tree ships.  In the end, choose what makes ya happy.  Good luck!

I would say no only due to how Wargaming has done coupons in the past. Normally you can only use coupons with sales items when they are in fairly expensive bundles. Again this is speculation about Armory ships  being given a discount like tech tree premiums, I could be wrong.
