Yeah I saw that too. Odd really. I was somewhat expecting him to be part of the next Arc, Royal Navy CA's. He had a reasonably quick roll-out of only 4-ish months, so maybe they will get ABC out for that Arc instead.

And No coupons for it either!

Considering the immense amount of coal for these commanders, let's hope they do introduce coupons for them at some point.

Owch.

No, thanks; I want the Thunderer and the Blys too badly.

Sorry but no thanks. It took me all year to grind enough coal to get close to a ship, not going to dump my coal for a 10 pointer.

You can skip the Blys. It's just weaker than the Leningrad. I have both.

I can have the Blys for free.

I will then have a Pan-Euro ship for the upcoming directives (if I can get the coal together in time) and for training captains in the new Pan-Euro line when it drops.

Leningrad, good as she is, can't do that.

Ok. Good call.

I have the Blys and the Friesland, so I'm set.

I considered the Friesland, but I play a lot of co-op and have concerns about her viability there. And now that there is an actual tech tree to work with, together with some preliminary data, IMHO a torpedo-less destroyer is a poor fit as a trainer for a line that will be characterised by interesting torpedoes.

Now if it had been a light cruiser line, that would potentially be a very different matter.

There's going to be a lot of coal dumped into our Armory over the next month.  175,000 is a lot of coal for a commander but earlier this year I had accumulated enough coal to pick up two ships.  Without another coal ship available and enough coal stashed to get the next one offered, I might just burn that extra coal on the commander.  I already have almost what is needed for him. 

A commander isn't really worth the coal IMHO but, I can put him on a ship and use him or I can leave the coal sitting in the Armory providing no value to me.

Maybe a captain coupon is coming hence the hefty base price.

that's unfortunate, I think it would of been better to make him a mission reward like on PTS. 175k coal is a lot of coal for a commander, although I really want him as he'll fit as a Kurfurst captain, but for that much coal, he should be a 15 point captain, or be 100k coal for being 10 points. My question now is "I know I'm getting Thunderer once the ship coupon resets, so is this captain worth it over Yoshino, or any coal ship that may come within the next three months?"

No

But I can see it if:

  • There are no ships you don't have or want.
  • You have an excess of coal to the point where you can get the commander and a ship.
  • You really want the captain for a specific purpose and it overrides any other value the coal provides

I may fall into the second bullet before the end of 0.8.11

If it were a 50% coupon, it would still cost too much.

I am hard pressed to part with 175K Coal for a 10pt Captain; even a special one. That is almost a ship's worth. 

Will have to see what the reserves look like after I finish all my snowflakes and think about it then. 

I don't mind they offer them like this BUT there should also be a mission means for acquisition like with Kuznetsov.

How much are the other Admirals in the Armory? Isn't the Russian Admiral the same price?
