Wait, you don't get doubloons for completing Graf Spee if you had the ship before?!

Didn't read it. Oh well.

Camo is kinda neat, I guess. But I'll never get see it in battle, because why would I play this pile of trash.

It will probably be one of the main cruiser picks for next CB.  I know you guys arent playing, but it makes sense that they offered it now in the dock yard.

If you already had the Graf Spee, you get:

  • Credits
  • Port slot
  • 10 point captain
  • New camo

 

While most of us would prefer doubloons I do believe WG is giving fair compensation if you already have the Graf Spee.

I will have 2 Graf Spee's. I did not realize at the time I purchased the ship that HSF was the anime high school fleet. I detest anime & most non-traditional looking commanders.

Someone who used to play more, in my clan, sent me HSF Graf Spee, and a message that said "Yo, I heard you like Graf Spees, so I got you this Graf Spee to go with your Graf Spee".

I got doubloons once or maybe even twice already for it. I would have taken it again though.

yeah, for this event wg was literally "this is how it goes. these are the rewards. Odin is not free, here is the price. Graf Spee is free. you don't get dubs for it if you have it. here is how long it goes. here are the directives." about two months before the start of the event. they really wanted to forestall any resemblance to pr except of the shiny dockyard graphic.

And yet, somehow, here we are in this topic. Reading is as OP as always. 

Who wants to bet that people are going to complain about not being able to get Odin for free in a month after getting all 18 free unlocks? :cap_haloween:

..plus a 10-point captain. I have good use for one of those in my DKM ships as i was short one and wasn't about to grind a ship to promote one...plus I got the 7.2 million credits I had just spent on my Buffalo regrind and purchase back. Zero sum is fine with me for a ship I wll not spend a single doubloon to obtain, but I will take any freebees WG will give me and say thanks...

I've already seen one or two Odin's sailing around . It's whoever wants it really . Either bad enough or just because. 

Hell if I had the cash id get it as well. So we shall see what pops now.

Get used to paying for the ultimate prize ...although all the extras are ok IMO.

i thought this was common knowledge, clearly i was mistaken in giving everyone the benefit of the doubt on that, and yes, im rather disappointed at not being able to get some dubs off of having her, but at least that new camo will look good on her while she sits in port

They were pretty up front from the get go this event was catered only to those that pay. Why would expect anything worthwhile when they spelled that out for us from the start?

And there it starts.  $5 you'll start seeing duplicates in later events being rewarded by credits instead of dubloons.  They typical WG way, baby steps so usual masses don't notice -- like China and this half of the planet.

She responds to a light touch you must not have? Sell it, take your money and buy something you consider "better" then.

Yeah, I don't like Spee. The dispersion stinks, among other things. Played a total of 10 games in the past years, and my stats are awful.

Your profile is hidden (of course) -- sincerely hope you at least beat these averages, with your light touch and all.
