Well damn.

Bonus econ packages for Tiers 7 and 8 ships in the free sequential bundles, eh?

They were told how badly they'd f***ed up in this regard for the British battlecruisers, and they changed tack this time around.

You can't say they never listen.

Well done, WG. I was going to sit this one out, but I think you just made me change my mind.

More ships for my Anime' Collaboration Commanders that haven't been assigned to a ship, yet. 
That's useful, in and of itself.

Looks like the bonus package for Shimanto is a trap.

It takes 150,000 fxp and 3600 community token to get T8 bonus package. However I estimate the research cost for the T9 ship should be somewhere around 218000 (estimate based on Pan Asian Sejong). Hey WG, if I whale 150,000 fxp and 3600 community token for just a bonus package why don't I spend ~70000 more to skip the ship to T9. I will definitely grind more to cover up the cost for bonus rather than a faster way to finish grinding the ship. Of cause if I am going to play that T8 ship a lot I will most likely benefit from it. But otherwise it simply looks like a waste of fxp.

Welcomed the Tier-5 Japanese "light cruiser", the Agano, to my Port after exchanging some FreeXP for some Japanese Light Cruiser early-access event tokens.
The ship was delivered by Commander Hisao Takamori (3 skill points).

Same here.  Second thing I did after unlocking Balao.  I'll probably be flipping between Furutaka, Yahagi, and Agano alot this week to see how they compare. I don't really have that much a desire to whale this event.  Agano is the only one I really wanted.

I noticed that as well, but for me personally the CM cost is harder to swallow than the FXP.

Still, kudos to WG for realizing that the nerfing of the economic rewards from the UK CC event wasn’t going to fly. Offering up the truly free tier VII bonus package (in place of the old tier VII camo w/bonuses players had come to expect) was the right call.

You can earn 1,500 Japanese tokens. But you need 2,100 JT to unlock the tier 8 cruiser. This is the second time you have to spend to get the tier 8. This is a bad trend for gamers.

That last set of missions for Omono, thats a DY doozy given that you only get what appears to be 8 days to do them. 11,000,000 damage might be kind of rough for most people. For the average Randoms player that could mean 200+ games (my Randoms avg damage is 50k for example, even in Coop its only 70k).

They won't change it, i don't they ever did on any other missions for upcoming ships in the past, that people thought were too hard or undoable.

Saw that.  Don't see much reason to use the Japanese tokens on the perma bonus package for it.  Seeing as the ships don't look all that interesting to begin with.

Just wondering if you have done enough comparison to actually rate them.
