does anyone know when are the new reward/freemium ships coming out? i dont see purpose in playing any competitive modes without clear incentive and also i have over 1mil free xp waiting for next free xp ship. will there be any steel only ships in near future? when is ETA on next free xp ship?

 

IIRC next ships should be jean bart and alaska. i saw jean bart is in testing and all i could see from alaska is stat preview.

There is also the T10 BBaguette Bourgogne coming. As to how you will get them: Nothing confirmed yet.

But you can be sure that there will be more rewards ships.

btw i am not worried about there being no more reward ships, just mostly ETA. cause if they arent going to come soon i could take a break from competitive for few months...

You'll be able to get Warspite or Gallant when the RN DDs are released in 0.7.9 using Sovereigns, a new currency created for the RN event according to the dev. blog entry posted here. There are no details on how many you can earn or what the ships will cost but it's premium ship(s) for playing the game, can't be all bad. :Smile_great:

That's a pity, I already have both ships. I hope there are other things to spend them on.

Quoted from the blog post ...

Quote
There are two new Royal Navy containers – standard and premium. All that could be found in the containers: signals, consumable camouflages, sovereigns and chance to get one of the British destroyers in early access: Acasta, tier V, Icarus, tier VI, Jervis, tier VII, Lightning, tier VIII.
Sovereigns can be spent on a new camouflage, signals, Bert Dunkirk commander, premium ships Warspite and Gallant, permanent special camouflage for Gallant and standard container Royal Navy.

Another two currencies - you'll also earn Guineas that you can use to buy a discount on the new tier VIII premium ship, Cossack. :Smile_great:

OK, well Bert I could use. A different Gallant camo - probably not, I don't like the ship much.

If my usual luck holds true I won't get the DD missions or ships however they come from the containers.

Having unique currencies for individual events is fine by me. Gives you more choice in what rewards you get.

Fine by me too, so long as there's a varied set of useful and desirable options to chose from.

So far it's looking good.

There's both unique "exclusive" stuff like new perma camos, flags, badges etc, as well as more utilitarian things like signal flags, consumable camos etc.

 

It's the best aspect of the old GNB event without having to deal with a glitchy temporary web portal.

Jean Bart, Alaska and Bourgogne are the only current confirmed upcoming T9+ special ships, with two of those almost definitely being arsenal purchases with steel/coal and Alaska most likely the next free xp ship. No word yet on new reward ships for CW's, Ranked etc.

 

Alaska is being added for testing in 0.7.8 so I'm guessing a 0.8.0 or 0.8.1 release for that. JB will likely be released in 0.7.9

IJN B-64 and B-65 classes.

Pan-EU 1047 Dutch BC class

IJN premium Yamato (4th unnamed unit that was never completed) or perhaps

IJN Shinano (as a CV, or perhaps as somewhat more modern BB as originally intended)

USN tier 10 Clan Reward-only ship DDG Arleigh Burke. Its got no guided missile stuff and only its main gun, but it got 50km permaradar (not as consumable) and itself has a conceilment value of 3km

If going with the originally proposed complement in planes, Shinano would be a T9 equivalent to Saipan: she wasn't meant as a fleet carrier in the same sense as Taiho or Essex were (lots of aircrafts in those, while Shinano only was intended to carry 47-53 of them for deck operations), but more like a replenishment ship with spare parts and planes for others while still capable of organising her own strikes and defense.

 

Salute.

A carrier with battleship health, anti aircraft artillery, heal and secondaries would be effective, because basically that is what you would get with the Shinano, the only problem is you would need to make sure that the crew was properly trained otherwise any DD can sink her with a single torpedo
