I know I wasn't tempted even a bit,Even if it were the Kutuzov  now if it were the Benham,Kutuzov  yup and I know if they offered up the Missouri,Kutuzov,Benham  a lot of of people would jump at it!:cap_like::Smile_teethhappy:But a tier three Dreadnought?!  That was an easy hard pass for me  Strategic Reserve    $99.99  is just too rich for me even  with 25,000 Doubloons thrown in.Matter of fact  there are very few WG offerings  I'd  pay  a  $100.00  for

Dont you get the equivalent comp in doubs if you have the ships already?..So its not a bad deal if you got 100 clams too throw away. plus the port slots.

 

Never mind no comp.....

I've seen premium ship bundles with doubloons as bonuses. But a doubloon bundle with premium ships as bonuses? I'm new to this.

It's 25K doubloons at the usual price for anyone who specifically wants to buy 25K doubloons right now. You get the ships thrown in for free, and if you don't already have one or both, it's a way to get yourself some low-tier fun while buying what you were out to get anyway. 

No, I wouldn't buy 25K doubloons just to get the ships (I already have the Dreadnought, and I am not interested in the Katori).

This observation, ty! :)

Was sorely tempted with the prospect of 6k DB. I didn't really mind the ship, it seemed okay(if I needed another low tier).

But, knowing that the transfer is essentially the same, granted with a ship, meh, I'm good. I'll keep my 25$ TY! I could have almost wiped away all the XP I have gathered on Premium ships before it gets out of hand. Start back at 0. And be more mindful. I do wish however the Store had a cart, where it allowed more than one purchase at a time. Unless I am missing something.

Apparently they tried it and it was badly broken (in the not-functioning way).

Like most non-coupon Wargaming premium shop deals, it wasn't really a deal. It's like shopping at Kohl's for clothing. Everything is marked as being deeply discounted, but nothing was ever sold for the (inflated) original price anyway, so the discount price is functionally the original price. In this case, $100 for 25,000 doubloons was the normal price, and they're throwing in one or two very inexpensive premium ships and port slots. However, by the time you're thinking about buying 25,000 doubloons, it's highly likely that Dreadnought and Katori will serve no functional purpose in your fleet, anyway, and/or that you own at least one (as Dreadnought was given away a while ago). With no doubloon compensation, it's not really a question of "Is this a good deal?," because it's not, just one of whether you wanted 25,000 doubloons at the normal price or not.
