I haven't had a chance to log into the game and verify for myself, but others are telling me it worked. 

So for those of you that stocked up on  secondary and aa mods in your inventory at half price, you have effectively double your credits. 

For me this was about 120M extra credits. My credits should be around 350M when I log in tonight.

Sweet!

I didn't have much to invest, but the profit will pay for Moskva, Kirov, and (coming soon) Helena.

Good to know.  I stocked up on all my T10 ships, so it will be interesting to see how many more credits I have when I log in later.

Needed the credits for actual ships for various reasons.

Plus I don't gamble.

 

I don't either, but if the worst you can do is break even, I don't consider it gambling, but an investment.

I had to put off a T8 ship purchase while I waited, but not a big deal, not like I lose credits playing the game, didn't take me long to get back to a 2 million credit cushion from 200k.

I was grinding legendary mods the past 2 weeks and running a lot of econ flags. Racked up 50M more since I bought all the mods

Now that I got my 4 days of premium, I'll be grinding Hindy's UU, (plus EXP) and Donskoi, as well as maybe Georgia and Musashi. (they have my next 2 19-pointers) 

A question though, given that I'll be using the same "special camo", would I be better off grinding EXP in Hindy, or the actual captains that need it in Georgia/Musashi? (ignore the fact that Hindy would also be grinding UU, I'm almost there(

Sitting on a plane panicking about my dear, dear Helena. I figured WG announced they “discovered” some secret cable that shows the Soviets really built and manned Helena under the USN banner and were going to move it to the proper tech tree with the revelation.

You’ll love it. Abusively OP at times.

Thanks

Well, the 100k xp if ran with full econ should only take about 5-8 games games. The 8M credits should take about 10-15 games with full econ flags and camo and the 15k fxp should take 2-3 games with full econ. Then the last 2 stages cannot be helped by flags and camos

So that gives you an approximation of what it will take to grind the Hindy legendary.

If you left the modules installed on ships....well they will just be replaced by the new ones. The trick was to remove them with doubloons and put them in your inventory.

Sorry, I wasn't clear. I meant I'm almost finished the UU. (8k bxp left)

I just wanted your opinion on what I should do after the UU is done, keep grinding Hindy for EXP, or grind Georgia/Musashi (with the captains that would be receiving the EXP) Which makes more sense/would have better return? (except for WR, my performance is averagish in all the ships)

Either way, I'd be using all the same special camo. (as opposed to the premium permacamo)

Yeah, with the 1/2 price upgrades and 20% demounting costs just before the changes, you'd almost think WG wanted us to do it.

It's base xp, so you can't use any boosting, so I'd work on your captains with that camo.

But would you advise grinding the captains' own XP in their respective T9 BBs, or grinding Hindy for EXP to use on those captains?

Or should I just go with whichever option has the best average XP?

OK, I understand now. It doesn't matter where you grind it then. I would grind on all 3 of them, getting the first win bonus on all of them each day. Then you are maximizing it the best you can. 

If you see me on, shoot me an invite and I'll do my best to help you get wins.

Yep this was a nice investment. I netted around 60 million in profit. Thanks to the Great Material Continuum all was provided.

I'll be expecting 39m credits (due to my lack of ships) when I log in today. Too bad I missed out on the other 21m ARP compensation credits.

This is just what I needed for the Moskva grind.

Easiest way to make credits is just to sell whatever you don't need in your inventory. I don't use any camo except for premium camo and the two or three buyable camo so I have had plenty to sell.
