is it worth taking the tokens for skane knowing it comes defacto with a free perm camo, or taking 5 days premium time knowing we are confined at home with nothing to do but play? i'm not sure what do do because with cvs playing dd is a waste of time, but a prem camo tier 7 could be useful for hunting corgies etc. however with the amount of credits/fxp i could earn with another 5 days premium time not sure the tech tree premium camo is worth it. any thoughts?

A T7 camo is normally 2,000 Doubs or $8 ... 5 Days of Premium Time is roughly $4 ...  

The camo is roughly twice the value ... but only if you will play the ship ... I'd go with the ship/camo

I'd recommended getting the Skane since it is the equivalent of grinding 60-70k xp on the Vasteras and spending 5 million gold as well as a free slot if you don't like the line.

Also, if you go the Skåne route and grind out the perma-camo, you will have made serious progress towards completing the grind for the tier 8 Öland.  I happen to have the Öland and am going to try to grind out its perma-camo, though with so little time left it will be quite a grind.  And I'm not sure that I'll have the patience for such a grind.

60 tokens short.

You can get another 4 container from this week twitch mission. 

The only problem is , you need 1600/1700/1800/1900/2000 baseXP for the missions to unlock them. First code should come tomorrow.

Loup, I didn't find it to be that bad (i.e. "nonstop CV games").  I had plenty of no CV battles.  Also, as I've said in many other threads talking about CV/DD interactions, a CV's squadron can only be in one place at a time and those higher tier maps are pretty big.  Of course, if the CV is working on your side of the map, life can get pretty miserable.  But I've had many CV battles in DDs where the CVs planes never came close to me.

The CV battles that really suck are the ones with 2 CVs per team, for the simple reason that now the carriers can be in 2 places at once, assuming that they're not teaming up against single targets.

Most people don't have enough tokens for Skane … 

So the answer is "no" and again "no"

 

Problem Solved!

Skåne is actually quite fun ship and decent at punishing T8 CVs. If you are interested in Swedish DD line which only gets stronger at dealing with CVs for each tier, then definatly go for the ship. Then you grind the perma camo and the XP to jump into the T8 one when line is launched.

she's a neat torp boat, and with the low damage torps you can rack up good hits.
