Ok, 9.0 is nigh and this is the low down on the event. Once again, WG is not giving out sufficient info before the patch drops, so some info will have to wait until the patch drops.


Index
Start and stop times
Earning British Tokens (Directives, Daily Chains, & Daily Shipments)
Spending British Tokens (Early access bundles and maybe other stuff) 
UK CAs (heavy cruisers) early access and how they work
PA New Year

Server Outage compensation (Jan 11th-15th)

 


Start and stop times.

Patch 9.0 is scheduled to drop at 8am EST on Wed, Jan 15th. The maintenance window starts at 5am EST.
Patch 9.0 is expected to end at 5am EST on Wed, Feb 12th when the maintenance window for 9.1 starts.

 

A new Directive starts each week and ALL Directives end at 2am PST Mon, Feb 10th, so plan on being done by end of day on Sun, Feb 9th.
   Directive I starts with the patch drop, likely 8am EST, Wed Jan 15th.
   Directive II likely starts 5am EST, Mon Jan 20th. 
   Directive III likely starts 5am EST, Mon Jan 27th.
   Directive IV likely starts 5am EST, Mon Feb 3rd.
   You must complete Dir I, before you can start on Dir II, even if Dir II has started.

 

Daily Chains will have British Tokens starting 5am EST, Fri, Jan 17th and will likely end at 2am PST Thu, Feb 6th. So 20 days from Jan 17th to Feb 5th likely means 10 per day between the two Daily Chains.

 

Daily Shipments will start at 8am Wed, Jan 15th and end at 2am PST Wed, Jan 29th. So the last day to collect a Daily Shipment is Tue, Jan 28th. To collect all 10 rewards, you have to start collecting by Sun, Jan 19th. 

 

PA Lunar New Year starts Fri, Jan 24th at 2am PST and ends Mon, Feb 10th at 2am PST, so plan on being done by end of the day Sun, Feb 9th.

 

 

Earning British Tokens (600 total available)

You will be able to earn British Tokens in the Directives, Daily Chains and Daily Shipments only during 9.0. You will be able to spend the Tokens in Armory from 9.0 through 9.1. When 9.2 drops they will be converted to credits. So 9.2 is scheduled for Wed, Mar 11th currently and Brit Tokens will be converted at the rate of 1 for 4,500 credits when that patch drops.


Directives (360 total)
There will be 4 Directives with one coming out each week. Each Directive will likely have 8-10 Missions (36 total) and you will likely need to complete 5-7 Missions to complete a Directive. There will be 360 British Tokens in the Directives and the British Tokens are apparently the reward for completing the Directives. The Brit Token rewards will average 90 per Directive, but will likely be between 50 and 200 per Directive (starting low to high) to add up to the 360 total.


A new Directive starts each week and ALL Directives end at 2am PST Mon, Feb 10th.

   Directive I starts with the patch drop, likely 8am EST, Wed Jan 15th. Complete 5 of the 9 Missions to complete the Directive and the reward is 80 British Tokens.

Spending British Tokens

NOTE: Per WG, If you get an early access ship from one of the bundle types, you can STILL GET THE SAME ship from the other type of bundle. You get credit compensation for duplicates. So for example, if you get an early access Hawkins CA from the Token bundles, you can still get the Hawkins CA from the Doubloon bundles and you will credit compensation.

You can spend British Tokens in patches 9.0 and 9.1. That is scheduled to be from Wed, Jan 15th to Wed, Mar 11th. When patch 9.2 drops, on what is scheduled to be Wed, Mar 11th, any left over Brit Tokens will be converted to credits at the rate of 1 to 4,500 credits. 

The big item to spend Brit Tokens on is the Token bundles. Currently we do not know the amount of Token bundles that will be available when the patch drops, but we found out it is INFINITE likely between 20 and 30 bundles. Four of the bundles will be the four early access T5 to T8 UK CAs that will include the perma-camos this patch which is new.

 

Token Bundles
You will have one bundle, randomly determined, for purchase for 20 British Tokens in the Armory. Once you buy that bundle, a new randomly determined bundle will be offered. There will be 11 variants of bundles with likely an infinite number of bundles that are not the ships. You can only get an early access ship once, but you can get the other 7 bundle options infinite times. The other bundles you will be able to get a certain number of times, listed in the Armory. If this is like past events of this type, there should be enough British Tokens available (600) to buy all the Token bundles. So if you buy all the Token bundles, you may or may not end up with the 4 early access UK CAs. If RNG is bad for you, you may not get a ship at all.
There may or may are not other things to spend the British Tokens on in the Armory..

NOTE: The ships are the rarest of the bundles, so it may take many bundles to get a ship. IF RNG is bad for you, you may not get a ship. Since there is nothing else to spend the British Tokens on, go ahead and buy the bundles with Tokens and see what you get.

LPJ999z.jpg

NOTE: The T5 to T8 UK CA early access ships WILL BE available in the tech tree to grind for in 9.1, which is scheduled for Wed, Feb 12th.

 

NOTE: Per WG, If you get an early access ship from one of the bundle types, you can STILL GET THE SAME ship from the other type of bundle. You get credit compensation for duplicates. So for example, if you get an early access Hawkins CA from the Token bundles, you can still get the Hawkins CA from the Doubloon bundles and you will credit compensation.


Doubloon Bundles

You can possibly get the same early access UK CAs in the Brit Token bundles, so you DO NOT NEED to buy the dub bundles to get ships.

There will be doubloon bundles you can buy in the Armory for 1,000 dubs each. They will have the same four early access UK CAs as the Token bundles and other items as well. There may be as many as 65(!) dub bundles in the Armory. The more dub bundles there are, the less likely you are to get an early access ship as a random offering.

You will have one bundle, randomly determined, for purchase for 1,000 doubloons in the Armory. Once you buy that bundle, a new randomly determined bundle will be offered. There will be 13 variants of bundles with as many as 65(!) bundles total. You can only get an early access ship once. The other bundles you will be able to get a certain number of times, listed in the Armory. If you do not value the other items in the bundles, I highly, highly suggest not buying the doubloon bundles. Since there will be 4 ship bundles among 65 dub bundles, ships will appear rarely. If you are not happy with possibly spending tens of thousands of doubloons, I highly, highly suggest not buying the doubloon bundles. The dub bundles are likely there for the whales with money to burn to whom spending LOTS of money to get something they want now, is not a concern for them.

NOTE: The T5 to T8 UK CA early access ships WILL BE available in the tech tree to grind for in 9.1, which is scheduled for Wed, Feb 12th.

 

NOTE: Per WG, If you get an early access ship from one of the bundle types, you can STILL GET THE SAME ship from the other type of bundle. You get credit compensation for duplicates. So for example, if you get an early access Hawkins CA from the Token bundles, you can still get the Hawkins CA from the Doubloon bundles and you will credit compensation.

 

 

UK heavy cruisers (CAs)
The T5 Hawkins, T6 Devonshire, T7 Surrey and T8 Ablemarle will be in early access. These are still WIP ships and these stats may still change before the line goes live in 9.1 which is scheduled for Wed, Feb 12th. Pics and stats in the spoiler.

Dev blog with WIP stats and these may still change before the line goes live in 9.1 which is scheduled for Wed, Feb 12th

 

 

- They will be semi-premium ships in that you can put any Cmdr into the ship.
- You can grind XP on the ships, but can not use that XP to research the next ship until the line goes live in 9.1 which is scheduled for Wed, Feb 12th. 
- Any Cmdrs placed on the early access ship, that are not already trained for that ship, will need re-training when the ship goes live, if they want to stay on that ship. 
 - NOTE, all the early access ships will be fully researched but will have stock modules mounted. So make sure to mount the upgraded modules if you get an early access ship.

Contrary to past events of this type, the early access ships will come with perma-camos which are worth 1,000 to 3,000 doubloons depending on tier.

 

The T5 Hawkins starts the line and may branch off of the T5 Emerald instead of the usual tier before the split. The T9 Drake and T10 Goliath are scheduled for 9.1 when the line goes live which is scheduled for Wed, Feb 12th.

NOTE: These early access ships will be tech tree ships when the line goes live which is scheduled for Wed, Feb 12th.

 

 

PA Lunar New Year

Starts Fri, Jan 24th at 2am PST and ends Mon, Feb 10th at 2am PST, so plan on being done by end of the day Sun, Feb 9th.

During the PA Lunar New Year Event, you can earn up to 8 Lunar New Year containers for completing a Big Fireworks mission chain. The container contents are listed below, but include chances (very small) at PA premium ships. If you get a ship/perma-camo you already have, you are almost certainly going to be compensated in credits for the duplicate. Here are the requirements of the mission chain. You must complete one Part of the chain, before you can move on to the next Part.

Using T5+ ships in Random, Co-op, and/or Scenario battles;
Part 1 - Win six battles and get one Lunar New Year container.
Part 2 - In battles, earn 15 "Hits to citadel" ribbons and get one Lunar New Year container.
Part 3 - In battles, sink 10 enemy ships and get one Lunar New Year container.
Part 4 - In battles, earn 30 "Set on fire" ribbons and get one Lunar New Year container.
Part 5 - In battles, earn 15 "Captured", "Assisted in capture", and/or "Defended" ribbons and get one Lunar New Year container.
Part 6 - In battles, earn 60,000 XP and get one Lunar New Year container.
Once you complete all 6 Parts of the Mission Chain, you will get two Lunar New Year containers and two Asian Lantern one-use camos.

 

Lunar New Year containers

The Lunar New Year containers will have Pan-Asian premium ships, alternate perma-camos, FXP, doubloons, premium days, and one-use camos. The perma-camos have the standard bonuses based on the tier of the permium ships they are set for.

While not explictly stated, it appears that each container will contain ONE of the following per the Premium shop (the graphic is misleading);

either a perma-camo OR

a ship OR

one of 5,000 FXP OR 

250 doubloons OR 

one WoWs premium day OR

3 Lunar New Year one-use camos OR

one of 1 Asian Lantern OR

1 Spring Sky OR

1 Mosaic OR

1 Type 59 one-use camos.

The premium ship is selling premium Lunar New Year boxes for $3 each. The prizes are similar to above, but 3-5 times more items depending on what drops.

 

Spoiler

 

This info is from the Dev blog. There is a dedicated article on the PA Lunar New Year per the patch notes. Per WG this will come out after the patch drops. Since the Lunar New Year is Sat, Jan 25th, we should get the PA Lunar New Year article within a week or so of the patch dropping. Stay tuned.

We should have patch notes tomorrow. The day before the patch, like every patch before.

Likely. And then more info on patch day. We won't find out how the Daily Chains are structured (likely 1,1,1,2) until Friday when they start.

 

It would be nice to find out things like how many total Token bundles there are when the article first comes out, so people can plan for how many Tokens they want to shoot for.

Way too many ships coming out one after the other I already have 326 ships . Got to a point where I just don't care what comes out anymore. Instead they should be refining other aspects of this this and increasing the quality  , better maps and better match making and etc. My guess that's not where the money is to make profits.  Just keep pumping out ships that's played out. wallet closed for now ! ! !

Funny because there are other players who are just waiting for new thing to grind. 

There are people out there who have all line grinded and regrinded and just sitting there, waiting for a reason to play, waiting for something to add to their collection.

 

 

Also one thing I want to mention. You may say that YOUR wallet is closed but that's not the case for every player. If WG keeps releasing line in such way that only T5-T8 are available first through gambling boxes it's because each time they do such thing, there are people who are buying hundreds if not thousands of crate. 

 

Now I'm just sitting here waiting for the "I bought X crates and no ships" thread. As for me, I'm not a fan of the look of those RN CA, but I'm interested in how Goliath will perform

What ships of the line are real again? I can't say I am enthused about how brain dead they are looking.

I read the 13 doubloon items to each be unique.  It does not say there will be more than one.  Essentially they're selling the T5-8 cruisers for 13k doubs at most, and given WG's track record I wouldn't be surprised if most people's 13th item is the T8....

I'm with you on this.  Just getting tired of the same-ole-same-ole.

Just not gonna bother anymore

WG can't sell maps to players.  WG can't sell game improvements to players.  Those are expected for free.  While WG has, very recently in fact, made improvements to things like the MM, maps, graphics and lighting etc, they also have to continue to sell items to make money.

New ships are never going to stop coming out.  In fact if they do, we should all be worried.

You have played this game over 20K times.  Everyone gets bored of a game, given enough time.  Taking a break and walking away once in a while, is an expected thing.

My recollection of the PTS was that every directive was five missions to finish. The number of missions per directive has usually been the one constant in all this. 

I should point out that the token and doubloon bundles:

1) Always unmask the next item available to buy, and...

2) Are the inevitable consequence of the ban some nations have imposed on lootboxes. Well done, lootbox haters - you brought us to this obscenity. Hope you're proud of what you've done.

I read the 13 doubloon items to each be unique.  It does not say there will be more than one.  Essentially they're selling the T5-8 cruisers for 13k doubs at most, and given WG's track record I wouldn't be surprised if most people's 13th item is the T8....

Nope, 65 bundles of doubloons on PTS. Not 13...

literally worse than loot boxes, as I would get all 4 ships for 24 or 36 loot boxes..

this is MUCH worse..

wallet closed on this, no way I’m spending 65,ooo gold on 4 tech tree ships.. and I’m a super whale...

Exactly

much much worse than boxes, quite discouraged as I love spending money on game, but this is too much

anyone also notice there has been NO SALES on gold for a long , long time, and they removed the ARMADA pack that used to give us whales 300,000 + gold once a year.

 

..

 

im not happy

PS I buy everything, or almost, but this event is majorly craperly...

Way too many ships coming out one after the other I already have 326 ships . Got to a point where I just don't care what comes out anymore. Instead they should be refining other aspects of this this and increasing the quality  , better maps and better match making and etc. My guess that's not where the money is to make profits.  Just keep pumping out ships that's played out. wallet closed for now ! ! !

I agree, too many ships, too many events. Yes, improvements to the game as a whole are welcomed and do increase the quality of the game. Just pumping out ships is shortsighted. Yes, change is necessary to keep the game interesting but  that requires good change.

Funny because there are other players who are just waiting for new thing to grind. 

There are people out there who have all line grinded and regrinded and just sitting there, waiting for a reason to play, waiting for something to add to their collection.

 

Also one thing I want to mention. You may say that YOUR wallet is closed but that's not the case for every player. If WG keeps releasing line in such way that only T5-T8 are available first through gambling boxes it's because each time they do such thing, there are people who are buying hundreds if not thousands of crate. 

And they're the same people who will rush to get all of these ships through early access, and then start griping again in a few weeks that there's "nothing to do".  Catering to such people with repeated early access events is what has WG thinking they need to expand in to "submarines"-in-name-only and offer garbage like the Regrind Bureau.

The funniest part is, there are fools who will actually spend 13k dubs, or 65k dubs, or whatever it takes, to get another line of tech tree ships a few weeks before other people do.

What's the difference between people throwing away money on lootboxes, or throwing away money on the packages in this new interface?

You mean the one you used to use to rip duplicate doubloons out of WG's pocket? Yeah, that one's been a long time coming but the introductory Steam sale set the stage for that one.

This way you get to see what the next thing you're spending on is. Previously you had to judge risk vs. benefit for yourself, a skill that too many people are not willing to develop. Read up on "mouse utopia" for why this sort of lowest-denominator deskilling is a bad and dangerous thing.
