And it's pretty good too.

Those Type 59s give 200% bonus ship XP. Grabbing 22 of them is not to be sneezed at. Also, if you have any new ships in port with their upgrade slots empty, this is the time to fill them. I have Rhein, Weser and Yamato to equip.

Makes me wonder whether I should grind hell for leather for Yugumo this weekend, so I can fit her out cheap as well. Unfortunately we don't seem to have any clan battles rental ships in port at the moment, on which to mount the upgrades for "safekeeping" and auto-dismount to inventory later.

Thanks for the reminder.  I'll be shooting Saturday so Friday is a grind day.  Again, thanks.

I've got the Bismark, Baltimore, and Nagato sitting in port without upgrades.  I'm not short on silver, but I'm going to buy them sometime.

No "flakes" this time around, it seems. 

 

This is the WARGAMING anniversary.

The WORLD OF WARSHIPS anniversary is a different thing.

Actually I'm a little disappointed. It's not that much a difference from the independence day event:

Who is paying doubloons to convert for 35 free xp? I'd consider it if it were for 75 Free XP; 35 just isn't worth it in my opinion.

It's the bundle of Type 59's that make this weekend a good one to slaughter bots. :cap_rambo: :Smile_izmena: :fish_viking:

30 Destroyed ribbons can be easily achieved in Operations. With some luck, you can sink 6, 7 or 8 ships.

Tnx for the heads up. Pretty good stuff for sure, I do wish there were a capt's spec reduced cost. I guess I will hold out and hope for a free one when the put in the new CV/DD spotting... been a long while now. :-/

I didn’t know you could buy type 59 camo with Credits. Or is that just to replace them in your inventory when used?

The text for the discount is slightly unclear, in trying to get that entire discount into one sentence. 

Non-economic camos cost credits.  Economic camos cost doubloons.

I wish to add my THANKS and APPRECIATION to WoWs for this generous sale celebrating their anniversary!    These sales are helpful to all, and extremely so to our newer players who are always struggling for funds to advance in our game!    THANKS!

It's not something I normally do, but I did for my MO.  I knew I wasn't going to have enough FXP before they pulled it from sale, so I got my wallet out.  Was worth, for me.

For something like that, hell yeah. When she got pulled from the game, I'm not sure I even had enough elite ship XP to convert!!!

When they announced that they were going to pull the Musashi, it was a different matter. I immediately worked out what it would cost me to convert, based on the amount I then had, and it came to little more than the price of a Tier 8 premium. I reckoned that was worth it, and that I would grind like blazes to try and bring the price down as much as I could and pay for what was left the night before she went away. I actually made it with time to spare and she ended up being free.

I feel like 35xp conversion is still a bit of a low bid. 30 Destroyed ribbons is a small ask for 22 paints, tho'. I hope to see a significant conversion rate in the future. 45-65xp closer to ideal imho.

I was also thinking of Type-21's. That's the one's I preferred, for the CR mod, XP mods are not as valuable to me. %CR mods are OP, we need more.

At 25/doubloon, it takes 40000 doubloons to convert what's needed for an Alaska or Agir -- about $150 I think.  At 35/doubloon, it takes about 28572 -- about $115 I think. 

Neither of those is a reasonable price. 

I think it was during the PR debacle, there was a thread with a bunch of us posting how much real money it would take to convert all of our Elite Ship XP to "Free" XP, and mutually laughing at the ludicrous amounts of money WG was asking people to spend on the conversion.

I'm at 800k and am trying to save for the Alaska. Almost tempted to drop the 5700 dubs, but am notoriously cheap, so...depends on how much I drink tomorrow night. :cap_yes: :cap_haloween:

Keep pushing on. The day to spend the dubs will be if they announce her impending removal.

I will farm too!

 

There are a lot of premium ships needing upgrades!

Use those things sir.  The flags themselves are useless and don't do anything for you themselves by, just sitting there being a graphic with a number under it.  You have to use them, in order for them to be valuable.
