Hello captains, I'm trying to figure out how this system works - am re-grinding to obtain USS Ohio from research bureau.  But I keep hearing about x2 bonuses that only come around once in awhile, can someone please explain that?  Thanks!

When you reset a line, re-research and buy the ships again, and get your first win you get the points for the eligible ships, which add up to 10k points per line (8k for carriers). Every three month season, your first reset line gets double points (20k for a normal line, 16k for a cv), but you can get those points at any time - for example if you reset your first line this season today but don’t grind it out until next summer you’ll still get the double points for that reset.

Be advised resetting the shimmy/hugmo line supposedly gives more points or at least is the cheapest way to go. Remember you have to buy the chips again. Personally i think using fxp is the way to do this but it’s your choice.

Look at the tech tree for one of the lines you can reset. In the lower left corner it should tell you how long you have till next season. Just under two months now.

awesome thanks.  so basically i can wait two months to unlock and play the next ship, and that will get me double research points correct?

Yes. Each season you get double points for the first line reset. As @monpetitloup said, the "cheapest" line to reset, if you can, is the IJN DD line.

No the double points is based on when you reset the line, not when you researched the ship back. The first line you reset this season (so in the last month or so) will give double points regardless of when you actually unlock the ships again, but any other lines you reset until the next season in two months will only give the standard points amount.

I had reset a line while the season was running, but didn't finish it before it ended. The 2x bonus went away before I could wrap things up.

With that said, I had gone through the entire re-grind for both IJN DD lines, so it's possible that the bonus only counts once per season.

Once you have the seasonal reset bonus, it never goes away. If it somehow has then that's a bug and you should file a support ticket.

I would only be resetting lines while using the x2 bonus. It becomes a huge amount of grinding if you don't. 

But yea, every 3 months I think, the first line you reset during that period will give you x2 research points.

No, it didn't.  The bonus is permanent and will be awarded whenever you complete the re-grind.

That's correct.  The bonus can be applied only once per season, on the first reset in the period.  (Again, you need not complete it in the period to get the double points.)
