 Mods -- since the US Battleship line split occurs at T8, should we all be grinding our Colorados to ensure we have the XP for the new line split?

Just want this confirmed...

Also, if you could persuade the devs to add new USN battleships for tiers 4 through 7, that would be awesome.

I bought the Colorado back since it’s on sale at the moment.  Just going to co op it once a day for the bonus.  A few months of that should put a ding the the research xp for the new T8.

You have to grind the XP to unlock a T8 on a T7, yes.

I might actually start seriously focusing on the USN Battleship tree, now that these are coming out. I really want the NC tho. 

I had the Alabama as a one-day Rental, and I want that experience again.

:SerB:

I put Colorado back in my daily rotation as well.  The more I look at the new line's specs, the more I'm intrigued by what Lesta/WG has in mind.   And it seems more and more than a few others in my co-op games have the same idea.

Vermont is just gonna freaking lay waste to the bots. I think we're going to see some epic damage numbers. Find someone who can bring a Shikishima so the bots mirror it, and let the fun begin!

@Taichunger, in all likelihood the line will split off from Colorado (at least all previous splits, including the Russian cruisers, have done so in this fashion.)  

That said, there will also likely be an "early access" event to get the Kansas (also based on previous events.)  Whether this will be better than grinding the Colorado, is anyone's guess.

I'm going to try a different build this time... full survival with the spotter plane mod one... and try not and brawl...at least till the end game....this will be hard...but I'm oddly interested in this line split...

@Taichunger The split starts at 8 but branches from 7 - so yes, you would need to get XP from the 7 for the 8. 

Probably will be the same XP as from Colorado to North Carolina. Though no one knows, it's a good assumption.

Got some built up already from a research bureau trip a few months ago. Would be wise to get about 140 K built up to get the T8 right away after early access.

Yea, the branch comes off the t7 so that is where you need the XP. Or just FXP it. (not sure I wanna repurchase CO and grind out the XP)

I too have more than enough worthless Elite XP on my Colorado.  Screw "early access".
