Any benefit to grinding the Pensacola for cruiser split?

I already have the Cleveland with full upgrades, which I gather ensures that I will get the future T6 Pensacola and the T8 Cleveland. Is there any benefit to me grinding to get the current T7 Pensacola before the split happens?

But couldn't I just grind up the last 10k XP after the split and buy the New Orleans anyway? Are there any freebies to grinding up the T7 before the split?

Or is it that, by owning the original Pensacola, I will receive a T7 New Orleans and a T6 Pensacola, the latter of which will be a dupe of the T6 Pensacola I got for having Cleveland, and therefore will be converted into a boat load of free credits?

Yes, free credits for you.

About 3mil credits, if I remember correctly. A full purchase price of a tier 6 cruiser.

And if you have / will buy a perma camo on pre split T6 Cleveland, you will get one for the new T6 Pensacola too. (And ofc one for the T8 Cleveland)

For Gun Upgrades

 

Quote

If your Tier VI cruiser flag_USA.pngnormal.pngVI Cleveland  had the top module 152 mm/47 Mk16 researched, your newly added Tier VI cruiser Pensacola will be added 7200 associated XP. If this module was purchased, 580,000 will be added to your account.

 

If your Tier VII cruiser flag_USA.pngnormal.pngVII Pensacola  had the top module 203 mm/55 Mk14 researched, your newly added Tier VII cruiser New Orleans will be added 12000 associated XP. If this module was purchased, 980,000 will be added to your account.

 

If your Tier VIII cruiser flag_USA.pngnormal.pngVIII New Orleans  had the top module 203 mm/55 Mk14 researched, your newly added Tier VIII cruiser Baltimore will be added 20,000 associated XP. If this module was purchased, 1,570,000 will be added to your account.

 

If your Tier IX cruiser flag_USA.pngnormal.pngIX Baltimore  had the top module 203 mm/55 Mk15 researched, your newly added Tier IX cruiser flag_USA.pngnormal.pngIX Buffalo  will be added 27,500 associated XP. If this module was purchased, 2,400,000 will be added to your account.

 

That should be 31.95 mil of credits. But I'm not sure if compensations for gun upgrades are included in compensations under "Ship Combination"

Would you advise me to buy the permanent camouflage (2000 doubloons?) for the T7 Pensacola? Will I get a 1000 doubloon refund of the duplicate camouflage on the duplicate T6 Pensacola?

 

What about this: 

  • If a duplicate permanent camouflage for a Tier VI ship is added to the player's account, then such duplicate will be refunded in the amount of 1,500,000

Don't do it, you won't get any doubloons.

It's only worth for the Cleveland as you get a T8 and T6 perma camo for the price of a T6 perma camo.

For the Pensa you will get a T7 and T6 perma camo for the price of a T7 perma camo.

So no-one gets a free Dallas, then?

Its a completely different branch and a completely different ship so why should we get it? Besides theyve postponed the release of the light cruiser line....

Mmhmm, but isn't Cleveland now the Tier VIII of the CL tree? On re-reading it looks as if you get enough credits to buy Dallas when it comes out, anyway, as a result of getting 2 x Pensacola as a result of all the shenanigans..... I shall just have to remember not to spend those credits on something else.
