German Navy collection:  I have 35 of the 36 items collected and have accumulated 100 duplicates.  Collection has nothing useful performance wise and has no end date.  I say keep collecting the 15,000 credits for every duplicate. What say you?  Also curious if anybody got the "Type VII Submarine" -- wondering if our generous host varies the odds of receiving specific collection items?  

P.S. I am well aware of the ability to trade duplicates and complete the collection.

Unless you want to mount multiple flags on your ships, keep collecting.  You've got 1.5 M in your pool already, you might as well watch it grow until you finally get the missing piece.

What, like there's only one collection in the world?  Finish it and move on to another.

If you don’t have any other incomplete subscription collections, might as well keep collecting unless you want the flag/camo for whatever ship type is incomplete. I let mine finish on its own since I didn’t have any other subscription collections. Traded in 120 something duplicates for credits I think.

I lost patience at 34 items and 70+ duplicates. Unless you're desperate for the credits, I'd hold out until the day before the next subscription collection opens. 

The only reason to mount two flags is if you regularly play Ranked battles and get the relevant group flags and/or have the Military Month flag and want to stack them for the bonuses they give.

IIRC. if you're collecting a completed collection, duplicates automatically will be converted to credits.  So you can have your cake and eat it too?

Can anyone confirm my memory?

I didn't use any duplicates, can't remember how many I accrued, but it was a pile.

Like you, I was down to a single item needed for completion - and was hung there for a surprisingly long time.  Two days ago, the last item dropped in a recources container and the collection finished.

The duplicate trade in resulted in somewhere around 980K credits - and though I was happy I could finally mount that second flag and alternate camo on KMS DDs, I have to admit there was a modicome of sadness that my duplicate collection was finished - ha ha!

Absolutely keep collecting those duplicates - keep it going as long as possible, if not for you - then in remembrance of my duplicate collection, now ended.  For my boy Blue!

Once a collection is complete, your duplicates cash out and the items stop dropping from the containers.

The only way that I know to get the items after that is to buy the containers that were associated with the collection. Can’t see anybody buying the crates just to get credits.

I'll close out a collection where possible.

The Coal Intensive Italian Grind needed about 4 months production 6000 coal at a time

 

The German one was fun and enjoyable. Still working  and will be for years possibly. We'll see yet.

I believe that @sdj_2016 is correct.  Once you finish a collection you can't subscribe any longer.

You may well be right, and I'm thinking of dog tags.

I spent 30k in coal on containers to close out three collections today:

2 years of World of Warships to get:

  • a Congratulatory perm camo for 4 tech tree ships I don't have: Kiev, Charles Montel, Monarch Z-23 (for which I already have Steel Rat perm camo)

the Battle for The North Cape to get:

  • 2 days of premium time for this weekend
  • Arctic perm camo for Duke of York, a premium ship I don't have

The Hunt for Bismarck to get

  • double the permanent camos I already have from two ( Unsinkable Sam and Gothic) to four (the aforementioned ones plus From The Bottom of the Sea and Last Conquest) for a tech tree ship I don't have

I had 400k coal, still have my coal for a ship coupon so I figured today was the day I'd make it possible since I can't get those collections via drops.   Still don't have the Vive Le France collection but I'll build up a bit more coal first since I'm in no hurry to get a French commander.

 

I'm wondering if the OP's open German Navy collection interferes with being able to get the current "Always Courageous" collection coming from the US Battleships 2 missions?

Some of them have flags and camo in them, and if you think the coal or money are worth the price, there is that. At that point, the 15K credits for the dups becomes a tiny glace cherry on the top, but that's all.

For the collections that are completed with coal crates or iimited-availability event crates, HELL YES. Coal might technically be infinitely renewable (in this game at any rate!), but there's no reason to spend more of it on boxes than you have to. Finish them with as few pieces as are necessary. (The French crates in the Armory used to be hideously expensive on a coal-per-crate basis. Then they gutted the contents and reduced the price massively. It was a huge boost to those who were only getting them to earn J.J. Honore, and for that reason it was a good move on WG's part.)

The only ones that are worth dragging out are the ones that drop in regular containers for as long as it takes. And even then, there are ones where it's worth cashing in ASAP sometimes (e.g. the ones that give a permacamo for a tech-tree ship.)

The current "Always Courageous" isn't one that you can subscribe.  So, it won't conflict with it.

Doing fine with 125 duplicates and counting.

Unlucky not to get that last drop? No; lucky to be getting 15,000 unearned credits each time. And then the AL collection to carry on next.
