I decided as I just came out of two weeks of self isolation the other day and with all my bills payed to just go ahead and buy  17,500 Doubloons for $87.32 CAD and just spend about $68.04 worth of the doubloons or about 8 bundles to get this:

Sometimes you get lucky! Remember, though, it's still gambling. This is a shortcut to Lepanto. You can still get it for when the line releases with Free XP, or by playing the line normally.

Nope. I got the Tier 4 for free from having my Twitch acct setup. But I have been buying flags with the Italian tokens. I see no need to spend money or rush for stuff that'll show up soon enough anyway. :)

No . I got the tier 4 and the tier 5 just by playing my normal routine no grinding and I'm spending no money . I will wait and get the rest for free since nothing really jumps out at me and says buy me early I'm awesome .

Congrats op. I was willing to buy one and see what popped up but it wasn’t a ship or a bunch of tokens so I stopped. Been having fun in the t6 so I will probably grind this line some once it leaves early access

Play and spend as you please .Remember they will eventually drop for free on the regular line and if you have enough fxp you can unlock all the ships with that just by playing .

It all depends on the "need and want" to have ships before they are released.

I won't spend real money to get tech tree ships.  Call me crazy, but I just can't see the reasoning behind it.

For my playing time during this event, for NO money, I have earned the Tier 4, Tier 5, and Tier 6 battleships.  The event isn't even over, yet.

If you are paying real $$ for this stuff, please do yourself a favor and take a close look at what your money will get you during these 'early release' events.  They are actually quite good if you are Free to Play...but I don't see the benefit of spending actual dollars during them.

Up to the T6 and haven't spent a nickel yet. I see no sense in spending money on free stuff but to each their own.

I generally don't either, but I might have been prepared to make an exception for the Lepanto if (and only if) she had been first up. A fully researched T9 is a lot of work and a lot of credits.

In my case she wasn't first up; and that being so, I did not consider her worth fishing for. That's going too far for me.

According to my calculations, thanks to last weekend's token mission I will have just enough tokens to grab the T7 and T8 camos without having to finish Directive 4's BXP task. That will be enough for me.

By DemonW0lf,

No.  Not yet.
Have welcomed the Dante Alighieri to my port by completing Italian event tasks/missions.

Got Dante Alighieri through the Amazon Prime account promotion and Conte de Cavour with tokens earned in the game. Need another 200 tokens to get Andrea Doria, so that should be fairly quick. My wallet remains closed but I will accept all the free stuff i can get...

Sure, if that was my first bundle for doubloons, I would most probably have gone for it.  As you said, the credit value alone may be worth the expense, and the time savings almost certainly is to most people.

But, the vast majority of us didn't get that fortunate, and I (for one) am not willing to jump down that expensive rabbit hole to find out when that "free" Tier 9 will become available for another chunk of cash.

I may be splitting hairs with my response.  But buying a loot box that we (or you) already know the contents of is not a Gamble.

The gamble in this case is what the contents of the next lootbox will be.  Those lucky few who had the Lepanto as box #1 weren't gambling, but I would posit that the vast majority of people who have had flags or camos and 600 tokens as the visible box didn't actually want those things when they purchased it.

It isn't when you want the contents. But when the one you want is not the first and there are fifty of them, how many are you required to buy to get the one you want? THAT is the gamble.

The only good part is that there is a cap on that spending to save the imprudent from themselves to some degree. I still remember someone in the French BB event in 2018 who complained that he bought $500 worth of premium crates and did not get the Richelieu unlock he wanted. (A stupid thing to do, as for that money he could have converted more than enough XP to get to Tier 10.)

Got the T9 after about 5 chances. Lucky for once. Bonus was the tokens I also got.
