I am thinking about finally researching a line with a goal of getting the Ohio. Can someone please explain the process to me? I have read it and have the following questions.

 

What happens to the XP earned on each ship after the reset?

Does it convert to Free XP?

 

If it is 20k Research Points for the first one, when do I receive that?

1) Goes to the T1

2) Yes It becomes available for conversion. Sorry, misread.

3) When you finish the re-grind. Each ship T6 and up IIRC gives a few RP when you play your first match in them, but the T10 gives the largest amount by far, completing the 10k / 20k.

Wait a minute, the ship XP converts to Free XP? So I should convert a line that has millions of ship XP? Can you confirm that? If it's true I have been doing it wrong.

There are seasons and you get 20K for each season that you reset a line. You don't have to finish the grind during that season to collect the 20K. You can check where each season is on the tech tree screen in game, the fine print bottom line.

Nope.  It converts to nothing but all piles up on the Tier I.

Oh you can then pay to convert, I see what Lert meant now. It would really make Research Bureau worth it, if it converted the lines ship XP to Free XP. I am still resetting a line for each season, I hope the Ohio is worth it, over the Colbert, I have all of the other US BBs. I might as well keep the collection going.

It was already available for conversion.  The only change is which ship it's on, which is meaningless with Elite XP.

I suspect the question had more to do with whether it would be available as XP in the re-grind.  Answer: No such luck (except for the T2).

As I understand the entire amount of XP invested in the line goes to the T1 as elite XP and becomes available for conversion. That's 700k ~ 800k of convertible XP for each reset.

All ships were already unlocked, so uncoverted XP was already Elite and goes to T1. The XP spent to unlock the ships originally is just lost at a reset.  At least, that's how I understand it; I haven't done a reset, so I'm open to evidence.

Hmm.  Maybe on the ship at a line split there could be some ship XP.  hmmm ...
