I have noticed that the Difference in XP price on ships is not the same in the tech tree. like the french richelieu , in tech tree it says 136000XP  to research but when i click on it then price is now  161000XP  why is that?

 

anyone knows that?

You also need to research the hull upgrades (not guns, or range finder, or other stuff... just the hulls) of the previous ship. That upgrade is included in the second price.

Mostly because the tech tree ignores the B-Hull you have to grind through first. Check the XP price on the B-Hull and add it to the 136.000 XP from the tech tree. Should add up to 161.000 XP

There certainly are some ships where you need to research guns or fire control system to advance in the techtree - i think its only there when the techtree splits up ( Cruiser -> DD/BB/Cruiser)

First of all this but I suspected something else when reading OP: Skipping ships to get "better" ship. Trust me @kenalb you wont get any better result out of any ship. Stay where you are and learn to play the ships. You are doing NOBODY a favour (well, WG gonna like you if you spend $$$ to convert to free XP, but thats about it).

well thank you for the answers, i didnt know that they took B hull into account, but still it dosent make sence that you have to pay for the B hull twice,  ex.  french tier 8  you pay 161000 for it but you still have to pay for research of  the B hull so why do you have to pay twice for the same thing.  

 

and @juanx  i didnt know that WG  did this. if i had known i wouldent have asked.

and if i have all the precding upgrades made , i still have to pay for the upgrade,  that is wrong, and serves only greed from WG, ex my Normandie is full upgraded with hull B and everything, so what am i paying for on the Richelieu, since the hull need to researched anyway.  if you are correct i have to pay for the same hull upgrade twice.

No just one time. 

 

Research and buy Lyon, research and buy its hull upgrade(s), research and buy Richeleu. Simple as that.

You only have to pay the XP for the B-hull if you didn't reasearch it earlier. If it is already researched the price in the techtree and the one you'll have to pay are identical. You'll never have to pay the XP for a researched module twice.

He is right Kenalb - I did that and my first 1500 games were a nightmare of n00bitity and Premium Derpship - learn the ships by playing through them without skipping them.... you only end up having to go back and playing them to learn how to play properly anyway .... but with a bad stat history that will dog you for evermore.

 

edit: If you want to learn 'how to shoot' play cruisers - they will also teach you about armour-angling. Russian line has accurate guns, so you tend to hit when you shoot properly.... once you know you can hit what you are shooting at, go BBs (if you want to go BBs).
If you can't hit reliably then battleships will never be good for you: you don't get enough chances to shoot (slow reload), French higher BBs have fewer gun turrets and you need to learn to fire accurate salvos to take advantage of turning ships etc (so no time to fire one shot to see if you can land the others)
Lyon is a shotgun - so it won't teach you much about shooting tbph... Richy has only 2 turrets - if you can't shoot accurately you will be a hindrance to your team, same for Republique.
You also need to learn/know armour-angling and over-match mechanics - honestly learn in lower tier cruiser first - higher tiers will punish you every time for mistakes.

This is how people ruin the game for themselves and others... don't FreeXP to tier 8 when you are clearly new to the game. Learn how to play in the low and mid tiers first otherwise you'll have spent your own money to buy your way into high tiers just to lose a lot and get told off about it in chat. It is not worth spending any money for FreeXP, if you really want to get better at the game and make progress a little faster then use your money to buy premium days and premium camo. At least you'll have the benefit of having more time to learn and yet progressing a little faster.
