Needs Confirmed

 

If my math is Correct, you have an extra 590k Ship Building Points at the end.

Green Has to Be done BEFORE IT STARTS.

 

 

Boost Per Min Instant Min Left Per Min Total Total   Running Total Total Need Left Needed
Free Boost 6 500,000 46,080 276480 776,480   51,889,360 51,300,000 -589,360

5835040

15 Days after Start

     
Base Per min 125   46080 5760000 5760000        

 

Dir 2 Complete 5 Days after its Release -(5 Days after event start =  7200Min Later)  Boost 2 Purchased From This

Daily Shipment + Login + Daily Missions Should pay for Boost 3   10 Days after Event Start (See Below Section)

Dir 3 Complete 10 Days After Dir 2 Complete (15 Days after Event Start =21,600Min Later)  -  Boost 4 Purchased From This

 

We are Now Done 15 Days after event start with 2 boosts purchased With Dubs.  We just ride it out till the end.

 

How to purchase 3rd Boost with Low Effort - Login 10 Days in a row and do the Daily Mission  This should let you Purchase Boost 3 With some to spare

We have a Spare 50 Shipbuilding Tokens from Dir 2

5x Tokens per Day - Login (start with 20 if you login first 4 days pre 16th)    70 Total after 9 Days

Daily shipment = 75 Total

Daily Missions =180      9x at 20per Day

Daily Missions is 640 Total    640/32 days Should be 20 Tokens per day from Daily Missions  (Im Guessing Here need WG to Confirm)

 

 

For Boost Purchases

Boost 1 - We get from Dir 1 Tokens

Boost 2  We get from Dir 32Tokens  50 Spare Tokens here

Boost 3 we get easily

Boost 4 We get from Dir 3 Tokens

 

Not sure if my Numbers are correct ?

OK, I just did the math:

It's possible to get Puerto Rico by purchasing the first 2 Doubloon boosters and finishing Directives 1, 2, and 3.

You will need to get each booster within 40 hours of the theoretical earliest possible time.

Or, if you faithfully grind the first 10 days of daily missions, you will need to grind each directive within 60 hours of release.

Need to add in the 125 base rate. When PR starts building on the 16 everyone will have a base rate 125 points per minute.

Whoops you do have it lol sorry.

So yeah if you buy 2 it is really not that bad.

LOL this reminds me of the good old days in World of Warcraft where we would spreadsheet setups for max dps

 

Who woulda thought it was going to be so difficult to figure out if I can grind a ship or not [edited]

So, if you buy all 3 boosters, it should be even easier then, correct? Perhaps just the first 2 directives completed, and maybe some of the daily missions?

henry is stating that we will still need to grind three objectives to get the ship

I am asking if we purchase all 3 DOUBLOON boosters, how does it change the math. As you can see, he stated if we purchase the first 2.

What would be best would be if NOBODY bought the boosters at all. WG again and again keeps pushing the envelope further and further trying to see how much they can get away with and how much people are willing to spend. Of all the grinds I've seen them put out, this is the most absolutely absurd one. I'm saying this as somebody who made the grind for the Kamikaze R in Clash of the Elements. This one is impossible, and being presented with it really feels like an insult and a slap in the face. Anybody spending money on these boosters is just encouraging WG to continue these kinds of practices. We had Christmas campaigns in the past for free ships, and yeah, they were kinda grindy but still doable at the same time. This one absolutely is not. First time ever for me where I'm not even going to bother trying at all.

He must have redone his math again and I missed it.

I agree, no sense rewarding them for what I consider, bad behavior. Am just going to content myself grinding snowflakes and farming the free crates. I am keeping all my doubloons and cash this time out. I may buy some premium ships for doubloons if they go on sale this year though. I have quite a hoard stashed away.

That's absolutely correct. Thanks for posting!

I did the math for purchasing 2 rather than 3 here because your spreadsheet shows you are purchasing 2 and not 3 doubloon boosters. Correct me if I am wrong.
