I just finished the event chain for London, ended up with 882 tokens.  Commander requires 1000 tokens, is it set up so that you have to buy something?

My guess is if you grind ask the daily missions,  you can get her.   Threat said,  the bar is just high enough to encourage some capital expenditure from a lot of people.

I'm in the same boat - you can get 10 tokens a day from victories in London (til Tuesday next week I think someone said?).  Going to be really close though, and I did almost all of the dailies.

Have you been doing your daily wins in Abermarle? It's the tech tree T8, and yielded 10 tokens/day for first win (shared with London). Might be over now, I haven't checked.

No, the 1000 tokens are easily obtainable just playing normally.  If you do/did most of the daily missions and finished the directives then the 1000 tokens are easily obtained.   It also helps if you have the extra 10 tokens per day from the Abermarle which is a tech tree T8 and easily obtained.  Even if you didn't do all the dailys you could still get enough but the room for error was low.  There were 1380 tokens available to be gotten if you had the Abermarle.  There were only 1100 available if not.  That means, if you didn't have the T8, you could still get to 1000 if you missed 10 daily missions.

Looks like you need to get most if not all the tokens from the daily missions as well.

See above.

I've been getting the 20 tokens a day for the daily mission chains and just finished the 4th directive. Cunningham is in my port. If you crack the whip you can get 50 (5 days @ 10 each) for the London missions and 100 (5 days @ 20 each) for dailies which will be plenty. That's if the earning opportunities end early Monday morning. Not sure when they end though.

Last day to earn tokens for your daily missions is this Sunday.

The Heart of Oak challenge (10 tokens for a daily victory in London, Albermarle, or Cheshire) has an unknown deadline. There's no date shown in game, or in the news article.

And yes, it was achievable by those who didn't spend any money on this event. I'll be short of the goal by 30 tokens on Sunday because I travel occasionally and missed a few days of game play. Having just earned London yesterday, that translates into 2 days of game play, which would have put me over 1,000 tokens. So I'll have to buy one doubloon crate for the remaining tokens. Fair deal in my mind, I'd rather spend the 4 bucks on Admiral Cunningham than 175k coal.

Didn't spend a dime - Ablemarle for FXP, daily missions, logins and 3 directives ....had him on Monday.

Going for about 400db now.

Sure, just like Puerto Rico.

I disagree. This event was achievable, even for co-op mains like myself, without spending money.

The Payto Rico event was anything but achievable for dang near the entire player base worldwide.

You’ll need to complete all the daily’s and win one game in the London for 4 more days.  That’s it.

Nah, I don't think so.  It seems they stopped giving tokens for dailys at some point, it only shows port slots for daily rewards now.  So, it's down to getting 10 tokens in London per day, and that won't get me to 1000.  But it's fine, I don't find a need for that commander anyway, was just wondering if I am missing something obvious.

I got the captain for free. Had to grind most of the daily missions though.

There are 1,100 freely available Royal Tokens, so you can't miss very many of the Daily Shipments (over) nor the Daily Chains (ends 2am PST Mon, Mar 9th).

Normal play and easily obtainable mean different things to different people. To someone with 10k battles it might not matter. To others with lives, jobs, children, or just plain burned out etc.. playing an hour or two every single day isn't really feasible. This commander was quite hard to achieve free compared to Sansonetti. Even Kuznetzov was more easily achievable (and most broken).

I don't think most of us would care if the stupid things weren't priced like Tier 9.5 BBs in the Armory. Its basically grind hard or fu.

You still get tokens for daily missions. Also 10 tokens each day for first battle in London, Cheshire and Albemarle. So that's 30 a day for those three ships.

Daily’s end Sunday, and they reset every morning at 530 est I think.
