It´s finally the same on all servers now.

You can get the Graf Spee for free and then play the convoy missions.

 


Sub_Octavian in September ´16: BB population increase is the real problem now. They are balancing on the edge of allowed combat effeciency and their numbers are growing. And they live too long. So we need to find the way to tweak them.

Patch 0.6.0: giant Buff for BBs

That´s right... nobody said it wouldn´t be a grind to get all rewards, especially if you don´t buy the AGS so you can start 7 days ahead.

BUT

we finally have the choice.

Silver. That is the way it works for along time now. If you already own a premium ship that you afterwards earn ingame, you'll only recieve silver credits as compensation (and the port slot).

Only when you get a premium ship a second time through a container will you recieve doubloons instead.

Well...

Atleast we have our extra missions now. Thing is that this thing shouldn't have happened from the beginning.

It is going to be hardcore grind if you wait until you get the Graf Spee for free. I am not sure its doable for people with that thing... how it is called... life.

If you play Tier10's I think you can finish each task in a few battles only. I can belive in it!!! :izmena:

Thank you for seeing reason and swallowing pride and especially thank you for getting it through to the decision makers and accountants.

 

I will be out there hunting the convoy and make sure to keep a repair crew on hand for my fuel refining system... (Graf Spee had a very German overengineered way of going out of business).

It is nice to see the mission at last. I think this is doable as I at least open two containers each day.

 

I did hold off purchase of the GS supreme package because there was no special reason to buy it as the convoy mission was simply not there. Now it is, and I just bought the supreme bundle. But what is this:

Block Quote

 Since the other regions did have a head start on the missions, if the players there spent $100 or $75 respectively, we wanted to make sure we compensated the European players who also invested a comparable amount into getting the new ship. Therefore, all players who purchased the Admiral Graf Spee Supreme offer before this article was published will receive the last 4 mission rewards (Fuso + distinct camouflage + port slot, Bayern + distinct camouflage + port slot, distinct camouflage for Admiral Graf Spee, distinct Camouflage for Tirpitz) regardless of their completion after the end of the campaign (on or before 21 January). Attention – purchasing the Supreme Bundle after this message is published will not unlock this benefit! 

 Why on earth are we punished for holding off the purchase of the supreme package until after things were fixed? I am also not able to start mission until holidays are over. Is this fair?

This is what we wanted. You can buy the spee now and start on 2nd, or grind it for free and start on 9th. But finally we get the chance. Thank you.

Question to pro players: what do you think is the best way to make 500K credits in one game? (combination of ship, tier, flags, multiplier...)

Take any t7/8 premium(or Missouri), mount the +20% credit flag, hope for a good game.

Hmm so the plan is complete first 4 missions and forget about others :D I like it!

Also WGEU make sure you give us equal treatment in future events too.

Thanks. I'm not a WG marketing emploee :rolleyes: but even with credits compensation I actually find massive value in buying GS and doing marathon and full convoy.


 

I wanted to do those nations anyway and getting started in six branches from tier VI with premium camo worth 5000 dubloons :coin: that's for me a save of several days or even weeks of playing WoWs already to grind exp and credits and buy those tiers VI alone.

Graf Spee and rewards from convoy are then an icing on the cake.

I am not going to unlock the GS in time to leisurely complete the missions, so I am tempted to actually SPEND MONEY on WG and just buy GS.... but that depends ENTIRELY on them removing Keen Intuition ( I don't care they changed the name ) from the skill tree and also to stop putting more diapers on the BBabies ( Fire Prevention skill now making ENTIRE superstructure ONE FIRE ZONE? Ow please :rolleyes: ). 

"First they nerfed the carriers and I didn't speak out because I didn't play carriers.                                                     Then they nerfed the torpedoes and I didn't speak out because I didn't play IJN DDs.

Then they nerfed cruiser HE and I didn't speak out because I didn't spam HE.                                                            Then the BBabies came for me, and there was no one left to speak out for me."

100k dmg in Shimakaze in a lost battle gave me yesterday 360k credits (no Zulu flag) so with +20% Zulu and +20% one-off premium camo its doable even without high tier premium.
