Do I understand it correctly that if you research 5 T10 ships it unlocks others for you to be able to obtain?

There's a system called the "Research Bureau" which is unlocked once you have gathered 5 T10's.  The RB has additional ships you can unlock with its specific type of points.

You obtain these points by resetting a line and regrinding the line back to Tier 10 (to collect all the points), which is up to 10,000 RB points.

Please note:  This feature is NOT designed to be a thing everyone interacts with.  Free-to-Play games are constantly trying to generate more and more content for the players that find their way to the game, and players can ALWAYS burn through content faster than developers can add more.

This system is there for folks that have finished grinding the style/type of ships they enjoy and have run out of additional options that look attractive to them.  So, they have a way to "reset" the game back a little so they can enjoy the journey to Tier 10 again without making an alternate account.  And doing it this way can earn ship modules that can alter how some Tier 10 ships play, or gain ships which are pretty interesting as far as premium/special ships go.

Yes. But....

When you have *researched* your fifth tier 10 tech tree ship then you unlock the Research Bureau which allows you to reset the progress on a fully researched tech tree line, then regrind it for Research Points. You don't need to actually buy

The process is a bit convoluted but very roughly

You automatically start with 10,000 research points for unlocking the Research Bureau

You get 10200 for every Destroyer, Battleship or Cruiser line you reset and fully regrind and 8000 for a Carrier line.

You also get a x2 bonus for the first line you regrind in a set 3 month season (the last reset was a few weeks ago) so 20400 for most lines.*

Note to get this bonus you only need to play the tier 5,6,7,8,9.10 ships once.

If you complete enough of the daily combat missions a month you also get some 400 from 25, another 400 from 50 and final 400 from 75 so up to 1200 a month.

The main rewards are a handful of tier 10 (Slava, Ohio Colbert) and tier 9 ships (Siegfried, Paolo Emilio) .

Also Unique Upgrades for most of the tier 10 ships, which annoys many of us because we preferred it when you got the upgrades for actually playing the relevant ship rather than regrinding lines.

You can also just choose to freeXP your way up rather than actually grind. The cheapest line to do this is the Japanese DD line that ends in Harugumo (676640 xp). You can check each one using the excellent wowsft tool XP tool

If you look at the costs you'll notice these grinds may take a while: Slava 63000 RP, Ohio 62000 RP, Colbert 57000 RP, Siegfried 47000 RP, Paolo Emilio 43000 RP


*You can also *stack* these bonuses just by spending free XP without actually buying the ships if you're playing the long game.
