Puerto Rico isn't worth 59,000 doubloons. It's not worth anything.

No, I don't recommend going for this ship.

strengths:
-Des Moines Autobounce
-12 guns
-citadel placement

weaknesses:
-battleship dispersion formula. this is not the Stalingrad clone you are looking for
-worst reload of all supercruisers
-big target, I'm assuming it handles like [edited]

Simply put, why bother? It's not worth anything.

This has to be the most awkward event ever. Make the most heinous grind for the most boring ship?

Yeah, big shooter, sign me up!

Not.

go treat yourself to a family vacation. take a break from the game. do something meaningful.

The more I think about it, the more I think you're right and I'll just say F it.  I was excited about it, and was willing to spend a little money on it, BUT, it looks too much like work, and I have enough of that IRL.

so funny if you think about this

the largest navy in the world, equals 2-4 combine after WW2

can't have a good ship rivaling a paper ship from the Red Russian, where sailors sail on land in black polos

especially a post war us ship would have a real computer made by IBM on board, should have at least 3.0 sigma

Well, I’m a curmudgeonly bachelor, and have the week off between Christmas and New Year, so we’ll see.

although the extra gun means it has the best theoretical DPM of all supercruisers, with only Yoshino having more HE DPM. Although yes, I think Alaska is tier for tier the better ship, I'm just going to try to get it, but if I don't I don't, I'll just have to trade some coal in a few months time maybe, and take Gorizia, a month of premium time (thank you T10 santa containers), Thunderer, and Grozovoi.

I have no interest in getting PR for a variety of reasons:

- I have Alaska which is a better ship at tier 9 than PR is at tier 10.

- I wish to have a life and not grind like a madman for a few weeks, ignoring everything else.

- I have no desire to throw a car payment worth of cash to speed up said grind.

I seriously don’t know what they were thinking. Last directive you have to earn 350k free XP on 1 ship. Sorry you can shove it where sun doesn’t shine.

On website explaining it said not possible time wise to earn without boosters which cost real $$$? Did I read this wrong? Plus the endless grind? Think I will pass. Being the season, I'm more inclined to play less anyways as I will be busy with family, friends and parties!

The worst part is how the boosts have time value, so you're pressured to spend at least $25 up front just to keep the option open to grind out the ship, before you know your work schedule or family schedule or any of that.

That's where this crosses the line from over-priced into exploitative.

ONE directive is 350K free XP on one ship???? You are kidding me? I've had to remind players in game but I never thought I would have to tell WG to remember this is a game not a bloody job. Most enjoyable things stop being fun if you are forced to do it more than you normally would. 

I have four weeks off in two weeks but I want to spend more time away from the 'puter not on it. I'm not even going to try for the PR. I will just play as normal and just make do with any side extras that crop up along the way.

Adding the PR to my trash list, alongside Yoshino, Ohio, Colbert and a bunch of other trashy water mobile i don't care to own. 

 

Hell, even my Belfast, Kutuzov, Missouri, Musashi, along with many other premium ships have been sitting in the port collecting dust for months or haven't touched them since last xmas, even the OP Stalingrad is slowly becoming a shelf queen.    Once the hype has worn off and honeymoon over, you'll start to realize all these "uber" premium ships are nothing special after all.

Sounds like you are just burned out on the game in general.  After almost 20K games, it is certainly understandable.

Those not burned out on it, still look forward to new ships.

Actually, the majority of the ships i have fun playing are all tech tree ships, in T10 the bread and butter DD are gearing, grozovoi, daring, and kleber, while cruisers i have moskva for long range radar, des moines as support and DPM ship, Henri and Zao as flanker and kiting ships, Worcester and Mino as DD hunter and HE/AP spammer, in BB i have Kremlin and GK as brawler, Yamato and Republique as long range snipers.  They already taking up the essential roles in everything i need them for, and I got virtually every role covers in competitive gameplay, be it in Clan Battles, Ranked or in Randoms.  To earn credits i could mount a bunch of camos and signals, and have just as much fun.   Heck, i burned half a billion of credits on buying signals in the last 12 months and still have over 300mil credits sitting doing nothing and those are all earned from playing tech tree ships.  After you've owned virtually ALL the ships and playing thousands of battles, you'd begin to see what i saw....almost all of the premium ships out there are just gimmicky, or downright complete trash.... like the Azuma.
