Anyone want to gift me the 40k doubloons to convert it all?  Because I'm broke AF.  I was looking at some of the free xp ships.  I missed out on the Mizzou and would like to not miss out on others before they're gone.

I am more dependent on the US SSI now If people are sending donations to the needy I raise my hand and throw  my hat in the ring.

Make sure those income moneys are UNEARNED

SSI could make a case that you are having virtual goods to advance your future esports or eleague training to make a living in video game winnings that are earned and subject to your SSI being zeroed for the month.

Only 40K doubleloons? Thats it? I blew through about 55K a few weeks ago. Ive another 100K being arranged as I write this to solve permacamo problems and buy ships etc.

Uncle sam's 1400 provided a oppertunity to convert about 8 millions of unconverted points. Im got those funds stashed in bullion in the safe waiting to be covnerted to bank account later towards winter for the related anniversary and holiday spending that is expected. BASED on the idea that the recent reworks and so forth will eventually be solved by learning workarounds within the game world. Spot bullion with premium is already increasing to where its equal to around 2000 US Dollars. Depending on the currency market I might convert to another nations money and then use that nation's ecxhange rate to double or triple the USD total by then.

So essentially all of the problems in the game economy is already solved. Just a matter of transferring a increasingly inflated and valueless dollars to WG.

THAT is increasingly being challenged by the bank people who see larger and larger amounts going overseas. SO I have to account for the dollars being sent by credit card as cash and the fees associated with exhange rates etc. At some point my bank will no longer exist and everything will be digital only. That will create temporary payment problems until new systems of payment are brought online. Thats going to cost someone money. Probably WG.

Now,...

A cold calculation of exchange rates into their Pound and Rouble etc indicates that in NA Servers they probably will reduce and not be as generaous with the usual free flags, camos and other things. It will come harder in the amounts we need to use in order to maintain the game economy without money in the failed Free to Play model. What we will have to do in order to evolve past that in a year or two? I dont know the answer to that question except perhaps some form of real world activities supported by drops from the related retailers like twitch. Instead you are to go to walmart and buy a dozen cans of soup. Once that purchase reciept is sent to WG they can drop you 100 flags of your choice. Thats a little more than what 100 of them costs in the premium shop today which itself might be eroded or faded away to other methods of extracting player dollars in real money. Maybe a system that leaves cash behind and relies on drawing from a virtual wallet system aka bit coin or something. The game product will continue just paid for in other ways.

I used the walmart buying example because everyone alive knows walmart. HOWEVER all of our stores in Arkansas is as I write this being converted to machine cashiering. Robots only. No human cashiers anymore. Last week when I went in, I found 200 people waiting up front for one human cashier line while 48 new robot machines were dealing with another 200 in line.

Most of the people were talking about stopping walmart all together and going to a local grocrery store that has at any time 10 human cashiers 16 hours a day. Once walmart discovers that their revenue and customers went somewhere else to get food (Even if it costs more) due to their deicsion to go robot machinery for cashering may destory walmart in retail. They have already carted away about 30% of all shelving, preparing online only sales of their product. What they will do with the new floor space remains to be seen.

It could be based on the US Mall Floor Koisk model. Third Party people buy a stall on that new open floor space, pay rent of same to walmart and sell whatever. Thats where I am thinking this is all going. Its very possible to buy game products in such a koisk and have your computer download it at home or your smart tablet or phone instantly. So thats one possible route.

ah, me too. Got Fries that way in a freeby supercontainer. Just like you, I was in no way getting a DD with no Torps. Does not compute. 

That is like a Mermaid without Jubblies. Blasphemy!

They for real turned off the FXP faucet. I don't spend it on silver lines anymore, only for ships or research bureau.

She was the first of the EU gun spammers, until Halland and Smaland showed up. In testing, her AA was literally TOO POWERFUL.

I had my doubts about her at first, but having experienced what Smaland's guns can do, a distant relative which can do the same thing from smoke is too good to pass up. She's meant to light fire after fire and burn things to death faster than they can repair (or to leave them weakened for colleagues to finish off); her DD status in real life came from her anti-submarine weapons, but they are not yet a thing in-game.

Exactly. Friesland sends happy rainbows of warmth and joy to large ships. The shells go over mountains, across rivers, and through grandmother's house.
Those guns can also buzz-saw a DD up close. I've surprised a few that way.

Småland and Friesland have the same guns. It's just that Småland gets radar, torpedoes, heal, and spood beast, while Friesland gets smoke, hydro, AA, and a tier lower.

I think for 2 million FXP total the Azuma and Agir are good ships. Don't expect miracles, especially if u don't use them properly though. Im bored frankly and there is nothing new under the sun at this point.

From what I've seen, Friesland also gets 360 degree rotation on the rear turret, which Smaland (from experience) does not - a very important bit of tactical flexibility.

Friesland is an excellent ship even without torpedoes. If he had, he would be abusive!!!
