I miss the building of the Puerto Rico due to having back surgery, I wanted to if the Puerto Rico would be coming to the Premium Shop?

(Probably) Never. Maybe this Christmas when you buy some Santa Crates. First T10 "Special" ship for cash! (Not that it wasn't for cash when it was first released.)

PR bundle coming to the premium shop for the low price of $400 USD.

Give 12-18 months, that's the typical WeeGee timeline.

The only statement from WG has been that the Puerto Rico will be available sometime in the future for a different resource.

So sometime in the future, instead of your sanity, it will be coal, steel, or free XP.

you probably wouldnt have gotten it even if you didnt have the back surgery, the missions were pretty much impossible for those that had a life outside of the game

you either no lifed the game through Christmas, or you used money

The reality is that a T10 premium ship would cost likely over $100USD, based on current T9 pricing.

That's a frightening price for any single ship.  Especially when you consider what else you can buy in the real world for that amount of $$$.

Why would they ever put it in the premium shop when they can make twice as much money selling it to rich fools through a bogus event?

Ask yourself which is worse … a pain in the back or a pain in the @ss?

You didn't miss anything :)

I used no boosters, but I still got the grind down to the point where I could have whaled PR and all the goodies I hadn't got yet for 25K doubloons (the "Finish now" price). Call that 22K because I'd have got a T8 permacamo out of it that was effectively worth 3K (despite the sticker price of 4K), and allow a bit for the coal and steel it would have brought, and it would effectively be not much more than the duplicate doubloon price for the Alaska.  (Disclosure: I had some unexpected no-life time over Christmas and I used it to full advantage.)

But I considered that 25,000 doubloons could do so much more across so many other in-game items, and refused to dump that many dubs into just one ship even with my wife's unsolicited blessing (she was THAT IMPRESSED with the visual spectacle of the dockyard). 

So for me it was a strategic spending issue rather than a "Can I afford this and still feed my family?" issue, but I still did not buy the ship.

If we're talking other hobbies, for $100 US I can buy 200ft of black and white negative film, or half that and probably enough chemistry to develop most if not all of it at home.

For that amount of money I could have bought myself a Cobi Set.

If you want to build a ship, why not do it in real life and save yourself a couple of bucks?

To the premium shop directly? Probably very unlikely for a very long time (and when it does show up, the game will probably be in its death throes and you wouldn’t want to buy it anyway).

WG said it will come back at some point in the future for a different currency, but they said the same for all the the removed t9s that have so far become santa crate/supercontainer only rare drops. Even if the t10s don’t get added to the supercontainer pool, I wouldn’t be surprised if we see PR and Smolensk in the list of available santa crate ships come December.

PaytoRico gave the player base what it feels like to eat a habanero pepper raw, putting her in the premium shop would be like adding water to cure the burns.

a good proportion of the 8000 current NA server owners of PR will have spent far more the 100$ to obtain her. PR proved one thing, people will spend silly amounts of money.

Or not as the case may be! Price gouging for TP at its best! Save yer money and use newspaper like we did in the old days (70’s). Most newspapers these days aren’t much use for more than that these days!

Yup, WG will be adding her for one of either steel, RP or (if we're really 'lucky') coal.

It is best not to engage in that thought process for anything that costs more than the Smith.

Was able to get the 4th set of directives done before the end of the event without doubloon boosters, so I only paid $60, less than a tier ix in the premium shop. :D
