First, please only answer the poll if you have bought or are planning to buy either ship.

Now, what ship do you prefer?

I got Boise. Why? I already have a 14 point Captain with SI, CE and IFHE, which is the mínimum to take advantage of this ship. I Will eventually get Nueve de Julio (just 300k, easy with the 200% xp bonus and all the special flags, just today I got 33k XP in 2 games), but starting with a 1 point Captain is pretty bad, and I don't want any of the bloated Admiral packs (I have bought them other times, like with the Massachussetts).

I bought both. to be honest I first realised I could have gotten one of them for free after I bought the big bundle... No harm done because I was low on flags anyhow. plus 10 point commanders is always useful. Think I'm going to enjoy both ships

I did it wrong. Bought 9 de Julio and had to spend Commander XP to train up a new captain to 6 points. Had I done it the other way around I could have used any US captain on Boise to get the PanAmerican ship and I would have got it with a 6-point commander for free.

 

So if you're not in a rush to get a PanAmerican commander, the best order is buying Boise and then doing the mission to get 9 de Julio.

If I only had bought one of them it would have Boise... Since I already have a suitable 19 point skipper.. Didn't fought a battle in the Argentinian before I had enough Elite commander xp to make the commander a 14 pointer. So I could put both IFHE and CE on him...

Bough Boise. Nueve de Julio is a good option only if you have enough Commander XP to get at least 10pt captain with IFHE as a first choice.

Bought Boise; basically a mixture of pragmatic reasons (I already have at least one captain with sufficient skills), and emotional (I'm not comfortable paying money for something with NdJ's later history).

 

Not entirely rational, since I'll eventually get NdJ in my garage anyway, but there you go...

i bought the Julio and got a 10 point captain with it and leveled with elite XP to a 14 point captain

 

The logic is that if I had bought the Boise (without a captain) and unlocked the Julio I'd be stuck with a 3 point captain.

 

I must admit I had a brain fart when I realized the. Julio has heal while the Boise has radar.

Boise has no radar.. you can choose between dfaa and hydro on both ships.. they are exactly the same except for name and camo

Radar? I thought the two were utterly identical (haven't looked in game yet)?

Bought Boise, put in my 19 pointer and i'll grind the 300k XP requiered for NdJ with cammos and flags pretty fast :Smile_honoring:

It's the only logical way to me :cap_yes:

I was basing that on the YouTube videos posted including the one by Notser on the Boise.    The Boise can mount hydro and radar in the 2nd and 3rd slots.  The Julio can mount Defensive AA or Hydro in the 2nd slot and only Heal in the 3rd slot.  No radar for the Julio (which I have and not the Boise).

Boise got heal instead of radar... The youtube video you have seen is a early wip.

Right next where I say "only people that are going to buy or have bought the ships". If you don't want to buy either, you don't have to vote.

Boise, easily. Nuevo does not interest me very much, although I will not say no to a chance of earning a free ship.

Apparently both, i bought  Boise and got mission for 9dh (300k ex until 31.12should be doable without much strain)

Because OP is biased and wants to exclude those of us who won't be buying them, me specifically because the gun range is way too short.

Don't know if I want her yet. But which is the most sensible option depends on what bundle you're looking at, I'd say.

 

If you buy one of the bundles with commander, then you're better off buying the NdJ, since you'll probably already have a US cruiser captain that can sit nicely in the Boise, and you can get the Boise by completing the mission. If you buy the Boise, you'll eventually end up with a NdJ with a cruddy commander.

 

If you don't spend that kind of money then it's not really much of a difference, I guess.

If either (I'm not convinced), then Boise.

 

As Nueve de Julio has some utterly disgraceful history and should not be celebrated in any way.
