Been reading and hearing about the grind. I'm just wondering if the Puerto Rico is even any good? What is so special about this ship?

The key to Puerto Rico is that it is surrounded by water, big water, ocean water.

...and salt.  Tons and tons...and TONS...of salt.

Take Alaska add a little bit more armor a extra turret and less accurate guns and there you go.

It's about as good as Alaska lol, so not at all. Only thing it has over the Alaska to support it is the extra turret. Really only use is for T10 rewards which can be useful.

With the state of the game, don't bother getting it unless you're a whale with more money than common sense. There are better games out there to make you happy - this is not one of them.

It's not bad. But other than that, no.

Can you imagine the riot if PR was some busted Russian ship?

it is special because it is NOT available or obtainable in the tech-tree, rarity is the key selling point here, and this sort of business model has been working very well since beta day.

In other words, it is completely pointless garbage.

Especially since you can basically get Alaska several times over for the amount of work and/or money.

AND she will earn more XP since she can be uptiered.

I've played it.  I like it.  But I don't think I've played it well; it's a different beast from my other USN cruisers.

Let's just say that were it in the Armory for 250K or even 280K Coal, I'd by it in a heartbeat.

Its an USN ship

Literally the most overpowered nation by a good margin thanks to the infamous USN Playerbase

It's your typical American fair in WoWs. Super middling.

Oh yeah, like crates with 4x camo per T10 I got this year?  Very useful, maybe that PR grind is actually worth it afterall.

When the anniversary comes around you get a free super container. Some other emblem stuff only works at T10. Minor stuff, but better than other tiers.

According to Flamu, the PR is a worse ship than the Alaska, even even without factoring the difference in tier.  

I heard. Still didnt stop him from raking in 100k+ damage and getting 3-5k salvos in HE alone.

I'd like to have her in my port, but with the blood being spilled around here, I don't want her until WG "fixes" the grind
