So. this is the figure I'm getting. Seems like an awful lot of FXP. Maybe for the Smalland. But Hayate?

 

Just why?...

That seems too high by a significant margin. I plan to pass on Hayate anyway since Smaland and Marceau will probably scratch my DD itch.

WG is playing head games …

They throw out an outrageous number to get you to settle and pay happily for 1.5

It's a TRAP!

I heard 2 million mentioned for Smaland independently on Yuzral's Twitch stream this afternoon, and in a YouTube vid of Flamu's released just now. 

Hayate's price was not mentioned, but both of them reasonably surmised that the same could be expected.

I didn't see the weekly English-language WG Twitch stream this week; perhaps that is where the information originally came from.

Flamu described numerous deficiencies with the Hayate while (of course) wrecking face with it, but that's Flamu for you. I've usually been good at seeing through the described disadvantages to see what a ship would do for me, and what he describes is not worth 2 million. 1.5 million, maybe. But not twice as much as a Friesland.

@Hapa_Fodder - I think WG may have a pricing issue on their hands here. Clarification and confirmation are required, and you can bet your bottom dollar that a fairly significant proportion of the playerbase will be asking for a reconsideration if this turns out to be the truth.

If they had put 1.5M out as a definitive final price, would you pay it?

Ah yes. Like the Puerto Rico placeholders?

It seems about right, they've never given a T10 ship out for FXP before, so 2 million isn't too far fetched. I would've thought it would be closer to 1.5 million, but inflation is inflation, and WG seems intent on making as many "resource sinks" as possible

Absolutely not .. and I wouldn't repeat any of their garbage designed to "tenderize" the market 

In this meta no DD is worth it … 

 

Bring on the Subs!

Two million is a huge jump from the current one million.

Have we had a tier 10 ship for one million FXP? Only tier 9's right?

We have never had a Tier 10 ship for ANY amount of FXP, is the problem.

The only common currency for Tier 9 and Tier 10 premium/special ships is coal, and battleships at T9 currently cost about 230K vs. about 250K for T10 battleships. Twice the price for a Tier 10 destroyer seems grossly disproportionate, even if you're adding on extra for the increased tier and for the torpedo armament the T9 FXP DD doesn't have.

Yeah that is what I thought. I do not think the 2 mil price will stick.

Missouri was a lot of work, Friesland not so much. Between flags and camo, farming operations you can make it surprisingly quick

Let’s see t9 BBs might Mo and Mushashi were 750k when removed. The Russian cruiser was also 750k? 
 

WG bumped the price on Alaska and Azuma brought inflation to a solid mil. 
 

if 2 mil is accurate that seems awfully high for t10s let alone dds not bbs or battlecruisers

Yeah, the issue as I see it is a tier 9 to 10 grind is usually somewhere around 250,000 XP give or take.  So double that from 1 million and it should more reasonably be 1.5 million free xp for a tier 10.  Grinding an entire line is only about 850,000 XP total (line dependent) so 2 million is a bit much (considering it's 2.5 line grinds for 2.5 tier 10's worth of free xp)

I think I wouldn't fork over more than 1.25 million for a ship. Free XP is getting tighter with the regrind bureau, don't think I'll be spending it lightly.

2 million sounds reasonable, as long as, they do not sell an equiavelent for cash in the premium shop. Hell, I'd be ok with 10 miillion - if they do sell either in the premium shop, I'd think 1.25 million fxp more reéasonable.
