I got the Graf Spee. Any other advancement in the ship build event will be through normal play. I'm not complaining, this was my goal.

I'm tired of the constant grinds so I'm taking a break.

Congrats OP!  I bought that Graf Spee a couple years ago (?) during a $9.99 USD special and while I've not been good with it, it's a pretty cool ship made cooler with the camo that comes with this event.     For myself, I'm waiting for next week's directives and see how I manage them to see if I can finish.   I thought this week's one was going to be easy but the battleship portion proved to be a strong challenge to me.   I think if I can finish with the 18 phases, I'll give it a serious thought to buy the doubloons needed for the last 2 phases.  I've some extra pocket cash that was aimed for the California but that's on hold (at best).

The Graf Spee is real history.  In the early days of WOWS, I begged and pleaded for this ship.

Then I earned it in a Christmas event.  Although it's not an OP Seal Clubber, it's definitely a versatile ship for where it is.

Have fun !!!

Got it, didnt like it; but only played one game.

Had too much fun watching the bizarre actions of low-mid tier new players. So at least I got to experience that again.

Will try it again later.

It's a fun ship, enjoy.  

 

Not paying enough attention when I purchased my 1st premium I ended up with the HSF version of the Graf Spee. This was a chance to correct that mistake.

Yeah, I do with they would leave a little down time between the events but they don't so we have to provide our own. This is not an important event for me and I will be happy if I get one ship and I will be happy even if I don't.

        The HSF Graff Spee is actually the betyter of the two. its perm camo is a better earner than the standard Graff Spee.

A sensible, rational and well-founded decision.

I took mine during Euro Destroyers Part 2, which had absolutely no directives or specific missions of any kind. Okay, so I went in hard on the Jerzy campaign, but that was long enough and matched well enough with things I needed to do anyway that the four weeks off from directives really did feel like a break. 

I'd actually been looking forward to a week or two at low speed after finishing the Dockyard, but WG decided to drop a second set of directives on us. LOL! No sweat, though; they're not THAT onerous, and they actually don't mesh at all badly with what's left of the Dockyard - which I do want to finish, even if I don't get the Odin, because I don't think it's really fair to write a critique on an event I could have finished but didn't. People might wonder if 'didn't' really meant 'couldn't'. 

(This is as opposed to the PR event, which I stated right at the start that I had no intent of finishing, but actually got much further in than I originally dreamed possible - so much so that if I'd kept my eye on the ball and tried just a bit harder, I might have cut down the PR's cost to an extent that I'd be willing to pay for. But that was my bad, and I owned it at the time. Like the Benham grind, it will remain one of my frustrating "if only" moments.)

I'm with you OP.  I wanted the Graf Spee.  I could care less about the Odin.  I got the Graf Spee.  I'm happy.  I'll do no more grinding on this event.  I'll finish a few more of the directives, just in the normal course of play.  Whatever rewards I get for those are icing on the cake.

I'm not really into the odin event but what if you already have graf spee before the event. Am I going to do the 1st directive?

If you already had the Graf Spee, and get to the Graf Spee in this event, you still get the port slot, the 10 pt German captain, and the new camo, with ~7 million credits compensation.

I immediately stopped grinding when I got the graf Spee.

It was quite some work for a ship that is not so expensive but man,

I love this ship!

Need to watch the documentary on YT soon...
