@Ahskance  I have about 3000 PA tokes.  There's no realistic way I'll get enough to buy a ship, so what to do with them?  I'm not motivated to slough 2000 on signals and camos -- I have enough of those already.  I could buy the 7500 Cr cashboxes, but apparently the quantity of those is limited to 100.

So, since there's nothing else to buy, can I buy multiple 100s of cashboxes?  Or will the tokes convert to cash at 75 Cr per at the end of the event?

 

Small tokes.

Good question.

Got the mission ship, but my motivation for anything else is somewhat lacking; especially considering all the negative press the Dido clone has had.

Every event-currency-of-the-month* has converted to credits at the end of the event. Same conversion rate as for the credit bundle in the armory.

*Except the portal tokens (community points) and t10 Christmas tokens (small Santa crates)

Credits. Sold for credits.

In other words I am not participating in Pan Asian right now. I consider China a pending military rival with whom we will have a conflict at some point. If these were happier times, certainly.

The reason for in game armory decision to dump the tokens is really simple. The first 2000 they demand as a bundle only buys like 8 signals or something. Not worth it. The rest of the ships will eventually hit the tech tree for free to grind in about 9 weeks give or take. I cannot be bothered with this event. I probably dumped 10,000 tokens so far into the credits at 1 to 7500.

According to a well done thread by @RainbowFartingUnicorn...

You can earn up to 15,000 tokens by simply completing the in-game Missions which finish unlocking in 5 days.  You should be able to buy the Rahmat and the permacamo for Tier 7 Chumphon.  You'll get the Tier 5 and 7 from doing the Missions, too.

If you don't want to buy the Tier 7 Permacamo then... I guess just hold onto the Tokens?  Typically there's a form of Credit exchange value after the event ends, though I don't have the information in front of me to be able to quote.

Per the article, it says:   With the release of Update 0.11.2, Pan-Asian Tokens will be converted into Credits at the rate of 1: 750 silver

or det flags…

Det flags I have out the wazoo.  This great 200% week has caused much ship buying and outfitting so Credits are dwindling.

First bundle is actually more than that, something like 30 or 40.  But yeah, a 2000 toke soak-off.

Did you buy multiple hundreds of the cashboxen? 

 

 

Boxen.  Plural like oxen.

With the announcement of the changes to camouflage and their bonuses, I am going to pass on spending anything on the permanent camos until the details are released. I would advise anyone trying to decide whether to buy permanent camos for tech tree ships using doubloons, cash, tokens, resources, etc, to put a hold on those purchases until Wargaming gives us the specifics on this new change. That information is especially important for tier 9 and 10 ships where the reduction in service costs and bump to credit earnings, makes playing those tiers economically feasible. 

With the Pan Asian tokens, going to get the tier 6 ship and call it good then use the rest for credits.

They could fix that by halving the service cost, but then where would be incentive to spend on permacamo?  So they'd sell a permanent cost discount at the current price of the permacamo?

I would too, but I don't see me acquiring 7500 tokens.  Oh well.  Not like I need another ship, though the T9 and 10s sound interesting.

Get up to 14K tokens from PA missions and up to 3K more tokens available at 1:1 exchange for Community tokens:

  • Level 1 - 2K tokens
  • Level 2 - 3K tokens + T5 Chungking
  • Level 3 - 4K tokens
  • Level 4 - 5K tokens + T7 Chumphon

Spend 13K tokens on the gatekeeper bundle, the T6 cruiser and the T7 permacamo:

  • 2K tokens = 25 flags + 5 camos
  • 5.5K tokens = T6 Rahmat
  • 5.5K tokens = T7 permacamo

If you don't want to go through all of the missions, finish the Level 3 missions and forget the T7 permacamo or even stop after the Level 2 missions and spend some Community tokens to cover the difference (that's what I did).

I could not find this text in the update summary.  Can you post a link?

As previously stated, I finished the Level 2 missions and tossed in a few Community tokens to get the T6 cruiser because I knew I wouldn't come close to getting enough PA tokens for anything else.

Of course, I passed the magic number to get the T7 permacamo last night.

Why even worry about completing these missions? 

I know they aren't hard, but isn't this what free xp is for? It's how I'll get these ships, if I ever bother.

Well because you get the ships fully upgraded and it costs you zero credits. I think you get a free captain too, maybe a port slot (not sure) so completing the missions is probably superior than spending FXP.

you can, you can just type in 100 in the box when you get the boxes. no need to click the plus sign, and you can get more than 100 in total. Just bought 400 of those in about 20s. Or you just wait for the event to end, as usual.

If you mean Rahmat...Yeah, I've seen a few negative comments about the ship.  I also have the ship, and my advice, fwiw, is to ignore those negative comments and go get her.  She's actually pretty good - in better hands than mine, VERY good.  Take a look at her stats.  Last I looked, she was one of the top cruisers in her tier, in both average damage and win rate.

Never say never.

As previously stated on 2/2, I finished the Level 2 missions and tossed in a few Community tokens to get the T6 cruiser because I knew I wouldn't come close to getting enough PA tokens for anything else.

Of course, I passed the magic number to get the T7 permacamo from Level 3 on 2/11.

Then I saw the notice that the PA Cruisers event ends when patch 11.1 drops on 2/16, so I looked to see how ridiculously far I was away from being able to finish Level 4.  Hmmmm ... it was doable, so I parked in front of the computer for a few hours and got the T7 cruiser!

Fake news from somewhere.  0.11.1 is subtitled 'Pan Asian Cruisers, Pt. 2'. It would be strange if missions and tokens went away...

Stranger things happen.

What I saw was a notice that the Pan Asian Cruisers Pt. 1 missions were going away with the drop of 0.11.1.

Tokens can be spent through the end of 0.11.1, but additional tokens will only be available from bundles during 0.11.1.

you convert 3000 communist tokens into asian tokens, then buy 4 boxes for dubs (+2400 PA tokens), that is enough to buy asian t8 permacamo, with 400 PA remaining which u convert to whatever.

There is even small chance to get a T9 (Jinan?) in the process.
