since you can get 1M freeXP in around 150games easily why not(even much less games, depends)? With coal and steel its very different story.

Yea that's a lot. I'm still saving for Nelson and twice I forgot I was doing that and upgraded various stuff on other ships which then made me feel sad :cap_fainting:

Lack of torpedos compensated for by rapid firing guns and 'decent AA defences'....It's the AA part that gets me. CV's hardly feature in the game anymore and even if so there are only usually one per match, so why are AA defences even a 'thing' anymore. I'd be quite happy to take my chances without AA in randoms. It's my opinion AA is highly overstated by WG and over-advertised as a feature but plays a rather insignificant part in the game compared to everything else. Trying to sell a dd off to us partly because of it's 'AA' is hyperbole and a false claim by WG in trying to justify how the lack of something rather vital is made up for by the addition of something else rather insignificant.

And that is the reason why many people do not have the Free XP.

The income would be sufficient, but most players spend it on other stuff.

Well, that's the usual WG Advertising for you. 

 

The AA on most ships got nerfed with the recent patch, also, the AA on the Friesland got nerfed significantly during it's last test run. 

And with the recent AA nerf, its AA is most likely even worse. 

 

So, don't worry, it will not be plane killer it was during the first test round. more like a Kidd, a neutered version of a once glorious DD.

Yea, I'm horrible in logistics and very forgetful week in, week out. I still haven't finished the Yama campaign and the shinonome I got this month after idk, only to realize its pre-cv rework so it has no aa :cap_rambo: (one -literally/ machine-gunnist pictured here) so basically not very useful :)

Unless you are a collector, I'd advice to stay 1000 km from her.

From the datamined stats the firepower should be less than Kitakaze or Mogador.

5km Hydro is nice, but the concealment is bad. 

 

Seems the only thing it really has going for it is the AA, which is still insignificant against a TX CV.

 

So... I hope it is not a 2nd Azuma... :Smile_amazed:

Honestly, the only thing it has going for it is that it's Dutch :Smile_hiding:

I had 300k Free XP, I am spending it on French Destroyers (which may be equally disappointing).

1,000,000/150 = 6,666 Free XP per game. How do you get 6K Free XP per game, easily?

According to proships.ru she has the highest DPM.
