2020

OK well I did this in a note book last year and since we are sharing results thought I would start a running total just to add to the data. I will not add all of the missions and campaigns since those results will be the same for everyone. Will include the dockyard.

Goals: Maximize the free stuff. Get enough steel for Shikishima (with coupon). Get enough Coal for Yoshino. Resupply camo, flags, and prem time.

Methods: Complete all the event Campaigns. Get the most value out of the Dockyard possibly drop cash on this for extra Research points and steel. Max out the fleet size to take advantage of the snow flake event. Potentially buy some crates after the free stuff is over and opened. Max out the free stuff from the twitch events.

So far:

Events:

12 days of free stuff including 2k coal, 2 Santa crates, 1 big crate and other various goodies. Done.

Dockyard: 

Tachibana or credits, Yahagi or doubloons, Santa crate, big crate, mega crate, Hizen, 2k steel, 10k plus coal, tier 8 perma camo, piles of flags and camo. Done.

Ships and Fates:

Wanted to use the 25% Discount coupon on Ark Royal before it expired. Screwed that up and bought it for 6k Dubs.... dang it!

So then just decided to use it on the E Lowenhardt instead for 4725 dubs. 

So 10,725 dubs spent on the two tier 6 CV's (lowest tier ship I do not already have.

OK pretty good first day. All of my time in tier 10's

image.thumb.png.4940a68017bc6e1594b2b3bb43cc61cf.png

Should finish tier 10's tomorrow maybe blast thru a bunch of tier 8's and do a round of ranked.

So WG is throwing free crates at me lol.

Ship of fates campaign looks like it will be a close thing (about one week to do the entire thing) if I wait and get Strasbourg for free. I guess I would have to decide would I pay for the tier 5 perma camos 5 Santa gifts and Santa commanders? Hmmm..... for lets see...40.00 bucks... I don't think so. Do we get dubs if we earn Strasbourg after we bought it? That would make it potentially a good deal.

Edit: If you already have flag_France_1b45875fe2166c392a4b0801c9fapremium_1d0cabf1997104fd727039ab9c098192VII Strasbourg in your Port, completing the Campaign will reward you with a Port slot; the Winter Holiday permanent camouflage; and 9,500 doubloons.

So wow yeah that does make it a good deal. Net expense about $2. 

Got a head start on the dockyard, bought the 14 phases in advance. Primarily did this for the 2k extra steel.

Had some good play time in between errands today.

Had a free crate drop a Champagne so that was nice. Still a lot more free crates to come before I think about buying some.

OK another fun session. Finished all the tier 9 snowflakes.

image.thumb.png.c236916706fac6c164413a145cdaa587.png

First game in the Champagne: Thanks for the free ship WG. It is a strange ship oddly fun. Absolute garbage at everything except epic sniping and amazing speed. 

image.thumb.png.de9c38a87b1a3daf10c1ca2ebb2b3532.png

Finished the first Directive in the Dockyard. Finished the first mission in Pursuit of Strasbourg. Made into the third mission for Ship of fates.

Tomorrow is Christmas eve so will likely only have a short session in the morning.

Merry Christmas everyone.

Cheers.

I only bought my usual 8 Big and 8 Regular Santa crates early in the event to stock up on my flags and camo for the year. But then I got some surprise money for Christmas and asked my wife if I could spend a bit on warships, and she agreed! I decided to splurge and go for mega containers for the first time because it had the Vanguard (which I really wanted) and I already had the Duca D'Aosta so I thought it would give me the best chance at a reroll. I went with the 20 pack instead of an 8-pack to give myself better odds and I got (in order):

30 Basilisk

12500 Coal

12500 Coal

2000 Doubloons

Vanguard (Yes!) +10pt Captain (gift box)

30 Scylla

Ochakov + 10pt Captain (gift box)

Yahagi (lol, of course)+ 10pt Captain (Supercontainer)

E. Loewenhardt + 10pt Captain (Supercontainer)

30 Hydra

2000 doubloons

12500 coal

2000 doubloons

25 Type3 New Year Camo

25 Type3 New Year Camo

20 Winter Strands Camo

25 Type3 New Year Camo

25 Type3 New Year Camo

25 Type3 New Year Camo

30 Red Dragon

Here are my drop percentages compared to the spreadsheet percentages (in brackets) that was linked to up-thread:

Coal 15% (8%); Doubloons 15% (11%); Flags 20% (29%); x25 Camo 25% (12%); x20 Camo 5% (17%); Premium Ship 20% (15%).

Overall in monetary terms, it came out to over double the value of what I paid for purchase, so I am more than satisfied with my results this year. I am also glad that I purchased a 20-pack instead of an 8-pack because I would have only ended up with mostly camo and would have felt put out. It really is a mater of RNG as to what you receive, with the outlier results mitigated by more purchases. But that's why they're loot boxes. Kudos to those who put the cumulative spreadsheet together to help me refine the amount I thought I would need to spend to get my desired result!

So Poltava.... more of a large Cruiser? Good first game but played more like a heavy cruiser.

OK Ship of Fates is done. So that makes 64 free Santa Crates. I think that is the end of the free small crates.

Finally down to tier 5 for the snowflakes:
