Awesome!!!! :Smile_honoring:

Snowflakes are back with Steel and Puerto Rico is the ship we will build in the dock yard which means it isn't a Steel or RB ship.

As long as Co-op isn't excluded from all of this I would say WG has given us one helluva a Christmas event this year.

Man I don't even have to look..... A grind for Peurto Rico?....  that's going to have to be ugly if its time limited.   I'm sure they'll be a pay boost for that one to  avoid a life -sucking grind...  .    Would be great to see some Steel back in play for us non-CWs folks.

Well, that's a stunner. We were expecting a T7 battleship, and instead we get a Tier 10 super-cruiser!

Oh man, if I can pull this off I will be SO glad I didn't blow FXP on Alaska when I was tempted.

OTOH it may be worth blowing a bit on some of my T7's to lift them up. I think I just found a new priority for patch 0.8.10! Time to start pricing ships and pacing grinds.

"Well, the weather outside is frightful and the gifts inside delightful....  Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow !"  Or, something like that.....?

In the end, a good gift is good because there is something to "work for" and not have to buy.  Cruiser, Battleship or just "stuff" that has real value is what makes any event a "good thing..."

why are tier 8-10 botes only 75 steel this year?!?

were they not 100 steel last year?

Tier X ships won't "flake drop" steel according to that article -- they'll drop a container with random contents instead.

So my slim hope of getting enough Steel for Flint is confirmed DOA.

Has anyone done the math on the max amount of Steel a player could get if they had all the tier 8 and 9 ships possible?

But you're right, as long as Co-op isn't directly or functionally locked out, the Shipyard payout could be a nice thing.

well, the Puerto Rico has 22 sec reload, it's another mediocre "heavy cruiser", you will be much better playing a BB instead

I have 45 to 50 qualifying ships for Steel (not home to check exact but around this figure). Probably will buy a few more too if it nets me 75 each.

T8 & T9 only for Steel. T10's get a crate it said.

T8 (Premium only as I recall) to T10 got Steel. Was 50 or 100. So 75 this year balances out sort of. No complaints here. 75 is good

I am extatic that they are doing the PR this way AS LONG AS it can be done through Co-op. I figured PR would be Steel or RB. This is awesome and the build a ship part of it is intriguing to me.

I have lots of Steel eligible ships now but will add any extra I can for sure. As a Co-op main I have to farm it when I can.

I am not at home so cant check on all the ships but just for the ones I have (that I can think of sitting here). I should get around 3500+. I plan to pick up as many of the ones I don't have as possible as well. I am going to open a Steel farm LOL.

Kind of wish they did Steel for the T10 too like last year as i have all of them (except Steel and RB ones). But crates towards building PR will be a big help (I assume anyway).

Just more and more of the same recycled crap. More directives, more French/Snow/Research/Anniversary Flakes, and another dumb collection.

Listen, as a playerbase we might enjoy these elements but throwing them at as over and over really kills the excitement.

Even the "build the Puerto Rico" thing is left over from the original Stalingrad and British Battleship releases.

Or not?

Even if I do have a bunch of such ships, there’s no motivation to play them.

With positioning sense as bad as mine, there’s little point to doing so.

8-9 were 50, 10 were 100.

This year 8-9 are 75, 10s are an event container.  Read first, then comment.

That would mean you have at least 47 ships in tiers 8 and 9 alone. 

Good gravy.
