  1. No, Even with all 3 gold boosters the maths says 59 days I think to build PR. You only have 28 days to do it, so you need to grind some directives or go deeper into your wallet

    Please don't buy the Puerto Rico

    @Sub_Octavian @MrConway. PR is a T10, so the realists among the player base like myself, expected the grind to be tough or the ship to cost a significant amount of real money. The real issue and it seems to be a recurring one, is that WG have failed to manage peoples expectations, again. The New Year ship build process was revealed in September I think, and we were told EVERYONE will have the opportunity to build a ship with this new and exciting feature WG are introducing. Along comes the PTS and the actual process is revealed, including the directives with test value objectives. At no point have WG said as this is a T10 ship expect the grind to be tough and only a few hardcore players will be able to get the ship just by grinding. Most of you will have to spend real money to complete the build if you want the ship. How much you have to spend depends on how far you want to grind. If from the moment PR was announced as the ship to build or the PTS test was launched you had told everyone the above, nobody would have room to complain, as you would have set realistic expectations in the minds of your players . Players are so used to getting so much free stuff from WoWS, (Thank You for it all), that they expected, unrealistically, to be able to get a T10 ship fairly easily. You are a business and need to make money to keep the game F2P, please just try to be more open about events like this in future to manage your customers expectations. A happy customer is likely to spend more with you and be happy to recommend your product to their friends.

    WG have not put this much effort into the ship build process developed just for PR. We will get it again.

    Outrageous Mission Requirements (coming from the Na forums)

    Thats just it isn't it though. This appears to be a cynical move. They don't want the layman to get PR by grinding, they would end up giving away far too many They want the layman to open his wallet and pay for it

    ^THIS^ 100% is exactly the problem. I love the idea of the ship building process, and I hope we get it for other ships, and some low tier fun ships too. But the PR build is absolutely crazy, understandable it's a T10 ship after all, but an insane grind, unless you want to pay for it. WG's response is terrible. You don't have to go for it if you don't like it. They are a company providing a service, they should want everyone to go for it. Instead they are saying don't like it, don't play the game then. Given the terrible year we have had with the CV rework and the Research Bureau, this could be the final nail in the coffin for some people.

    Which is what WG are banking on, and they hope you will open your wallet instead.

    Whats the purpose of this? Credit farming?!

    You need to edit out his name, you are naming and shaming there, and that's a forum no no.

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

    You also need to actually purchase the boosters with tokens or Doubloons and activate them ASAP to maximise their effect as the ship building process starts on Dec 16 automatically and finishes either on the 13th Jan with no ship or before that date if you complete the build. The whole concept seems to be get all the boosters available as soon as possible. The only question I have is if the 3 boosters for doubloons are available on release date (8.11) and someone buys them, along with the one free booster you get to start, does spending that money guarantee you the ship? I can see the mother of all poop storms if that doesn't as I can see people WILL expect spending that much cash will get them the boat.

    again with the Christmas gamble boxes.

    I think if they did post the odds nobody would buy them.

    again with the Christmas gamble boxes.

    I read the list and cried. I'm never gonna get my Admiral Mak now. @MrConway, @CrysantosAdmiral Mak wasn't OP, and there are still some of us who don't have her and very much want her. Why has she been permanently removed?
