    Please don't buy the Puerto Rico

    WG can create a new resource, how about salt, harvested from the tears of all the players who paid and ground it out in the event.

    24,000 doubloons for 'premium' Puerto Rico boosters.

    Worth emphasising this bit: If you are planning to buy three premium boosters: The first directive should be completed within 7 days after the directive’s start; The second directive should be completed within 7 days of finishing the previous one; The third directive should be completed within 14 days of finishing the previous one; You should collect all rewards from Daily Shipments; You don’t need tokens from Daily Missions at all (they will only give you an additional boost); And be sure to spend your tokens as soon as possible. So that's the thick end of £/€100 and you still have a pretty steep grind to get your ship at the end of it (or pay yet more to complete). Also note the non-apology "we're sorry that you're too stupid to understand this".

    "If at the end of January you end up with nothing from the grind and you want to complain then, if you live in London, good news: you can fly to St Petersburg and complain in person"

    The question I have is what happens when presumably quite a large number of players find out they've devoted a lot of time and effort into something that was impossible from the start and can't/won't pay for the boosters? Are they going to be happy?

    Perhaps the real point is that WG have in effect decided that we're not going to have a x-mas event this year and have replaced it with an event that's impossible for 99.9% of players. Give us an event with a moderate grind and an interesting low/mid tier ship as a reward and the construction yard becomes a great idea, WG might even make some $$$ from selling boosters to regular players if they're sensibly priced and the players are happy. Stick PR in the armory for a mix of gold and FXP and WG can be happy too.

    Even CCs complain about Puerto Rico grind

    I guess it depends upon how you define "free", if it includes premium time and a huge stockpile of rare camos and special signals plus premium T9/10 ships and you're willing to put in 8-10 hours per day then maybe, for everyone else forget it.

    I'm curious, is this thing even any good? I mean most of the reward ships to date have been total but for what WG are asking surely the PR must be about as balanced as a Death Star v Ewoks or @El2aZeR v anyone who thinks the CV rework is alright.

    Gorizia. Why?

    Flamu makes an interesting point in the PR show video, it's there to try and trap players into the "sunk cost fallacy", which is to say that having spent a fair amount of time getting to that point, they might be more willing to spend cash to avoid an otherwise impossible grind to avoid losing their "investment". Personally I think it's better described as a form of second order price discrimination but what do I know?

    I'm afraid this is where we are in the game's life cycle, mature, starting to decline, WG want to monetize what's left as hard as possible so more P2W for those willing to and less and less for the average "low value" players as they get pushed to one side. I have to say I've always found WG's prices absurd but the thick end of £/€100 for boosters for an in game vehicle is just out there. Guess I'm stuck with the odd bit of PT server and maybe some co-op here and there, can't see any reason to put any effort into any new lines.

    Banned over there now so decided to come over here and waste our time instead?

    Removed carriers

    Seems unlikely IMO, WG seem to have given up on CV completely now.

    Carrier callbacks and game ballance.

    I guess most have just run out of things to say.

    CV Rework Discussion

    Personally I'm wondering if the game will still be around in 2-3 years time, it feels to me like it's gone into a pretty steep decline.

    Patch 9.0, big change?

    Are submarines ready? Wait, what am I thinking about?
