This is one of the most in depth Videos I have created to date. It contains a Ton of great tips I have learned over the years to get the most from the Free Content available in World of Warships.

I have had veteran captains tell me they were unaware of several tips for what I had considered fairly obvious elements of the game, but we have all learned from different resources!

I wish I had found a resource like this when I first started playing :) 
 
- Things like selling off stock modules from inventory to generate a ton of credits - I personally did not know this one until about 2 years into the game!
- Where to earn free premium time and then saving & activating it for those high 100& 200% xp weekends to maximize our credit & FXP earning.
- How to find, activate and get through the 19 current available collections for as little in game time and currency possible
- Better coordinating our mission choices to get though events & campaigns much more quickly
- and many more that help reward credits, consumables, captains, ships & doubloons
 
 I hope these help & I would love to hear of any that you were not aware, and ALSO, if you have any suggestions that I might have missed here :

I have to admit, after 3 years of being in premium time, it takes some adjustment to the small xp and minuscule credits, even for wins.

I'm getting tired of the videos not showing up in posts.  I had assumed they would fix this by now.

Solid advice. F2P seal of approve.

Also remember to check the forum for codes for free stuff. That's another good reason to hang around here.

Not sure what you mean - the video is in the post plain as day.

It's weird - and just started recently - but some of them show and others don't..

 

Thanks for the video.  Good advice.

Tip #1 for F2P:

Spoiler

DON'T SPEND ANY MONEY.

Personally, I'm not entirely dogmatic on this point.

Lots of great suggestions.

FWIW, I save the doubloons for buying premium time when I know I can play and have relied on coal to purchase premium ships. It does seem that WG is trying to make coal ships worse compared to the RB/Steel premiums now - but I saved up early and got the Jean Bart and that was my money maker for a long time. I have the Thunderer too now, and never had to spend a penny. When I know I have time to play, I pop a day or weekend of premium and grind up a LOT of credits so that I can afford the tech tree ships. I have 5 tier 10s now (so I get the RB bonuses too which I use to buy flags mostly now.) I also have two tier 9s but probably won't upgrade til we get a captain reset - or maybe when they put out the anniversary containers if they give out good rewards for the tier 10s, but I'm not spending the resources on upgrading the captains til WG gives us a free one. They used to do that more often with clan battles, but they got tight about that :-/

The KOTS competition is streaming right now, Watch for the tags below the streamer you choose they should show KOTS DROPS - Statsbloke, Flambass for example right now & I believe Searaptor on in a bit - Watch for one of those KOTS collection containers for the T7 Premium container

then for the next 3 weekends , one container each day // Sat/Sun

I really enjoy these competitions

I don't see embedded videos in this forum.
I also don't see when people explicitly set their text color to something dark.

This is because I set my forum preference to "dark mode." The problems go away if I change to light mode.

You're thinking of something else. Inspect shows the raw encoding of the page, rendering details (including errors, including Javascript errors), packet views of network traffic, etc. This is exactly the sort of tool one uses to debug a web page.
