So I Need An Extra 37,500 Tokens Above What You Can Earn To Get All The New Ships?

I added up all the tokens I can get from missions and the ones from the free gift they give you for logging in each day and I'm still left with needing 37,500 tokens to get everything. Now that DOES NOT count the tokens you can get from twitch streams so I could knock off maybe a couple thousand more but still it seems we are going to need somewhere above 30,000 tokens which you will have to buy. Am I missing any sources for getting more tokens?

It was planned this way by WG in hopes you would buy the 1500 doubloon containers in the armory, and you will need to buy quite a few unless you get lucky.

If you wait until the ships are released then you can get them for Free XP and credits. Is the rush worth it?

It’s the same as the last few EA events (especially the US BBs, which used the exact same system) - it’s to encourage people to spend doubloons on the bundles. 

There will be a few weekend missions as mentioned in the patch notes that will give some more tokens (although the mission requirements and token rewards are unknown), but they’ll likely only total another few thousand. If you want everything from the early access event, the only way has pretty much always been to shell out money.

I'm guessing that WG will throw in some "special" missions with more tokens.  Probably not enough to actually get to the next level, but enough to get you close, to entice you to spend some doubloons to get it.

So you can get these same ships in the tech tree line once it's released? if that's the case then the only thing maybe worth getting now are the unique camos right?

Nothing really worth, the unique camo is also +50% XP, same as the default one.

So apart from the cosmetic "value" / appeal of the unique camos, it would actually make more economic sense to spend the tokens on consumables, wouldn't it?

If you finish the directives and grab all the tokens from that, you get T4 through T7 (the T7 ship from finishing all four directives, and her permacamo for the tokens). Then you can play through the rest of the line as soon as it is released in a couple of months...

If you want everything at once,  sure, you have to pay through the nose. Such is the price of impatience/greed.

Yea, you are right.

The last mission reward is T7 BB, so really no point to spend tokens to buy T4,T5 or T6 bbs or +50 XP perm camo.

It depends on whether you want all the ships or whether you only want to get to Tier 10 as quickly as you can. And there has been more than enough said over a very long time about people who race to Tier 10 and don't know how to drive the ship properly.

These are tech tree ships...there is no "default camo" w/out purchasing a camo so the camos from the event are worth spending the tokens on if you plan on running the ships after you get them (either from the event or after they become available regularly after the event.

^^^in regards the camos for the ships.

If you can afford to buy the camos then this thread is a moot point...but assuming you aren't planning to purchase camos for the ships so using the tokens for them are a good purchase if you click w/the line & wanna have better gains w/them when you run them.

Another person stunned by the revelation that WG is a company engaged in commerce.

WG is making you buy tokens in order to get everything. It sucks, but that's the only way to get all the camo's and ships in early access

I know the perm camo sounds good, but you won't really play it every day, and it's just +50XP, which is worse than many other one-time use camo.

The true question then becomes:

Would you play ship A more than 50 times? Then a perm camo is fine

Or would you play ship A in ~20 times with one-time camo and unlock ship B, and you would never touch ship A again.

Yeah... that's why I said, "if you click w/the line"...meaning you will be running them a lot...

You will get the ships on the way to the camos anyway so don't even throw the "20 battles to get the next ship" into the equation as you will already have access to the next ship.

As opposed to being patient and working through it gradually later for free.
