Once you are past the intros the first thing you get is a doubloon discount on 8 construction phases (ignore the actual amount; PTS values are not necessarily the same as Live server values). The coupon expires once you unlock phase 1, so you have to figure out at the very beginning of an 8 week long event whether or not you'll make enough progress for the discount to be worth it.

Don't say it out loud.  The "I just want to be angry" people who are about to respond, don't want the truth.

I agree on that, but at the end of the day this is by all accounts a fairly weak tier 8 BB not a tier 10.......

It also a lot cheaper than a T10.  As I understand they current setup of the event, it's much easier than the PR was, you have twice as long and if you complete the event, the T8 will end up being about $14.

$14 for the low, and for an additional $18, you can cut the grind by a third.

Seems straightforward enough.

The PR event you could complete a tier 7 for free relatively easily........(this event you are getting what a 66% discount assuming you have played through all phases)

This, the directives are much more reasonable and mere mortals should be able to do them this time.

How can you say that when we have not seen it yet?

The accelerated - easy missions you see in PT do not necessarily correspond to release. Everybody liked PR in PT, then we found reality.

Aye.  Not saying that it's a great ship.  It might end up being weak.  What it is though, is a REALLY cheap T8 premium BB.  It's a great deal if you don't already have one for the German line and don't want to spend the money on the Tirp or whatever.

We have had the full mission requirements from the dev blog for a while now.  Over a week I think.

As long as they don't change them up to much, it is much easier than the PR was.

That is indeed true it will be interesting to see what happens to the other German BB....

I am being hopeful WG may have learned their lesson and will instead be doing what they do in World of Tanks Blitz with this type of event. Where you have the big vehicle that is either difficult or impossible to get without paying cash, but they also have another vehicle a couple tiers lower that is good and appeases the player base enough to prevent any riots. And last couple Tank events I participated in that lower vehicle was nothing to sneeze at in power levels either. And the higher tiered vehicles I mainly did not get because of playing WOWs so not enough time to fully focus on both. But prior to WOWs I did manage to get some high tiered premium tanks that since have been very highly sought after by those that missed certain events.

So this “ PR Dockyard 2.0 event” could turn out far better than the last one if I am correct in WG having learned their lesson and perhaps taking some notes from their cousin game / dev team.

The directives and their requirements were in the news section of the portal and were linked to here where the real requirements for the PR event were hidden until the patch which rightly drove the brouhaha over the event.

So it looks like if you whale the Odin from the start with money, then you grind out the stages after, you end up with a load of steel.  At least that's how it is on the PTS anyway.  Dunno if that will go in live or not.

Yup. I actually hope they offer the discounted pack at the beginning on live. That is a small amount to pay to ease the grind. I am tired of grind after grind after grind. That is something I would consider doing even though my spending with WG has gone down because it helps me out a lot.

I will bash WG again and again when they deserve it (like how they are ripping off owners of the Moskva camo) but I will also applaud them when they offer something reasonable in cost and playtime. They have done a MUCH better job in Dockyard 2.0. They deserve no abuse for this. IMO.

Cool, an event which rewards my investment with a discount to buy a ship I don't want to buy... totally enticing
