The title says it all. Can i get him for free just by doing the directives? 

Cheers.

Not just by doing all the directives, no.  You also need a good chunk of tokens from other areas.  If you haven't been getting nearly 100% of the daily missions done you've probably already missed your chance to get him for free.  If you've been doing those, and the directives, and the daily wins in the British cruisers, it can be free.

This, I can see that I am not getting him for tokens and will have to wait for him to show up for resources, hopefully coal.

You can get 10 tokens a day for a win in the Albemarle (tech tree tier 8 ship), and 20 tokens a day from doing the dailies.  You get like 500 from the directives, I think.

If you're only off by 100 or so, you can grind the heck out of the PTS.  Completing the 30k base xp mission on the PTS that corresponds with the British Event 2 rewards you another 100 tokens, as well.  You would have to complete the current one first to be able to do the previous one (so 60k base xp :\ )

I'll get him for free I'll have him by this coming monday, I have had to due daily 10 token and Daily missions for the past three weeks if you haven't been doing the dailys and 10 plus tokens, then you will have to wait and buy him for 175,000 coal.

Someone in the forums mentioned the skipper is kinda OP. I may just get over the 1k threshold, is it really worth it? Especially if have no intention of being a super serious clan, ranked battle person.

With the 3rd set of directives complete & 20 tokens from Friday, Feb 29th's dailies I have 770 tokens. The 4th set has another 150 tokens. That will leave another 80 tokens or 4 dailies to get the 1000 tokens needed for Cunningham.

I am assuming WG will still be including tokens as part of the dailies rewards until the time expires on the event.

 

BTW, on a side note does anyone know if Andrew Cunningham & Richie Cunningham are related?

Thought I'd ask.

You'd had to of been playing multiple battles every day for the last couple weeks or so. Really dumb. The gold price is asinine too at between 5 and 8k and that's with directive competition.  

None of the commanders are remotely close to worth 175k coal either comparative to what ships cost. At some point I wouldn't be surprised to see a 50% coupon introduced into the Armory since they're pumping these commanders out with regularity.

But do you get rewarded those on live server? Doesn't actually say anywhere I can see that it will.

Once you complete this mission, the Winter Season #2 mission from the previous Public Test will become available to you. After completing this mission as well, you'll gain access to the Winter Season #1 mission from the Public Test 0.9.0. If you already started working your way through the Winter Season missions during Public Tests 0.9.0 or 0.9.1, your progress will be saved.

All the live server rewards appear to be clearly stated with

Yes, yes they are, and, like Andrew, Richie Cunningham is also OP.

You can get him for free, if you successfully complete daily missions, directives, etc. @Kizarvexis has written a clear guide how to do it. 

As always :-)

He's going to be as overpriced as Kuznetsov, Lutjens, and Phillipe.

"Don't complain about carriers. Look at yourself, your playstyle. It's not the carriers' problems. It's yours. Live up to it, or continue to be ignorant." 

You have / had at least a five daily mission leeway for Cunningham if you don't have London / Albermarle since the directives give 550, the dailies 500, the daily shipments 50 and the L/A daily 280 total tokens.

Or put another way you need to earn/buy 450 tokens after finishing the dailies.

Can you even buy those tokens?  In a lot of past events they had loot crates that included tokens as well as a few other token items (the typical rags & paint).  This time I don't see any.  Not that I need them, I'm fairly certain I'll get him once I finish directive 4.

I think I have missed 6 daily missions so far.  Even though I'll get London Monday and can start collecting an additional 10 tokens/day, it sounds like I'm going to be a few short.

His silver worth in terms of what you get for 1000 Royal Tokens is 9,000,000 silver. There's nothing else in the Armory that appeals to me so I will probably get Cunningham, sometime tomorrow if not Monday.

Armory bundles for 1K doubloons include 40 tokens each

"Don't complain about carriers. Look at yourself, your playstyle. It's not the carriers' problems. It's yours. Live up to it, or continue to be ignorant." 

Yes.

I currently have 772 tokens AND have Cunningham. I got him the day he became available. I did that 1st stage of the event and some other stuff and got the tokens I could and then I spent real $$$ to buy bundles to finish it as I also got Goliath the day the update dropped and wanted him for the Capt. Didn't want to wait a month or mess with swapping/retraining Capt's so I could use Goliath right away so just got the tokens I could and bought the rest needed. However if you add those 1st earned tokens I used, to my current 772, as well as all the ones you can still earn I am easily far over the 1000 needed.

This link shows you how many tokens you can earn free over the course of update 9.1 (scroll down to Royal Tokens)...

 https://worldofwarships.com/en/news/game-updates/british-cruisers-london/

Total Tokens Available:

  • Complete all 4 Directive Stages = 550
  • Complete all Daily Missions = 500 (20 tokens p/ day)
  • Complete all Challenges = 280 (10 tokens p/ day - requires London, Cheshire, or Albemarle)
  • Receive all Daily Shipments = 50
  • Total tokens possible for free = 1380

By just doing the Directives? No.

 

You have to do almost all the Daily Chains as well. If you did all the Daily Shipments, that gave you 50, so you can do five less Daily Chains. If you have been doing the London, Abermarle, or Cheshire Daily Challenge, then you can do less Daily Chains.

The Cmdr costs 1,000 British Tokens.

You get up to;

550 British Tokens from Directives,

500 British Tokens from Daily Chains,

50 British Tokens from the Daily Shipments (ended Feb 26th),

280 British Tokens from the Daily Challenge for London, Abermarle, or Cheshire.
