British Cruisers: Early Access

Just to warn people, the random bundles mechanics will not work like the finite choices from the Halloween event, where you are eventually guaranteed to get a ship. With the bundles for tokens there are an infinite number of bundles, so your odds of getting a ship are more like how early access missions used to drop from regular containers. The Premium bundles are finite though (though there are still up to 65 of them) and will drop ships (like how Mogador was released early).

 

Edit: Also sorry for not mentioning it before, if you (simply) complete all of the Directives, daily log-ins, and daily missions, to get all 600 tokens you can collect a maximum of 30 random bundles for free. If you're lucky enough to be offered one of the ships in a Premium bundle for 1,000 Doubloons, remember that it comes with a permanent camo and depending on your usage might be worth that cost. Otherwise, it's early access and everyone gets access to them in 0.9.2. Just wait!

but at least on the PTS the ships were hidden in 65 bundles...

i can't see anything in armory or does it start?

You can get early access to tiers V - VIII in 0.9.0 (in a few days).

Once 0.9.1 goes live you'll be able to obtain tiers V - X in the tech tree.

Directives, random chances,... It's getting a bit boring I would say... if it was January 2019.

 

Seriously, make some interesting events for a change.

Bundles that don't contain ships may appear more than once.

So it's just like previous lootboxes...

WG, you really suck and you learn NOTHING from your mistakes.

 

First of all... again the same random bundles, WG RNG and everything that all players HATE.

 

Way to start a new year with completely recycled system of rewards.

 

Oh wait, it's different this time... You have an INFINITE amount of bundles, no guarantee at all to get something out of XX bundles like it was the case until now.

 

And where is this exactly mentioned in the news article? That the bundles are not finite and there is no guarantee to get what you want even if you get XX bundles?

 

So again... not giving full information and manipulation.

 

Seems like WG quickly forgot about the last PR fiasco and moving on with new ones.

 

Here is a screenshot in case WG decides to alter something without stating the changes. Wouldn't be the first time.

on the PTS it was 65 doubloon bundles and unlimited token bundles, and I guess/I am afraid that it will be the same on the Live Server...

It's even worse, at least with the previous events (Genova, Halloween camo's), you were guaranteed the main reward somewhere along the list of possible drops. This now has been thrown out of the window. You now can get flag upon flag upon flag upon flag without any mercy.

T5 premium Camo = 1000 dubloon

T6 premium Camo = 1000 dubloon

T7 premium Camo = 2000 dubloon

T8 premium Camo = 3000 dubloon

4x Port Slots = 1200 dubloon

7 days Premium = 1250 dubloon

--------------------------------------------------------

= 9450 dubloon

 

so 3550 dubloons or ~12€ for not learning how to play these ships.

It comes with the camo that was used in the late 1920's on Hawkins & Devonshire: white hull, yellow/ochre superstructure and funnels.

Efficient Repair Party consumable: restores 50% of citadel damage, as opposed to the standard 10% for this ship type. Starting from Tier VIII, Repair Party restores 2% of the ship’s maximum HP per second instead of the standard 0.5%.

You really dont know your own game any more WG.

Yet more random bundles and lootcrate-esque boxes to eat through peoples' doubloons. I urge everyone to do themselves a favour and not spend actual money on this...

You do realise that anything we say will be noted and ignored, as they only listen to the Russian player base, we just have to suck it up or go elsewhere.

What is the meaning with these early access? Play the game solve the directives and buy bundles for tokens, don't buy any bundles for doublons. Take what you get and wait so you can tier them instead. I'm quite confident that there will be at least one or two brittish HC premium ship to buy in the shop with admiral pack or commander pack and one with only the ship for those of you who only wants that. There will also be brittish cruisercontainers that can be bougth in 25 pcs for 24000 doublions or money in the premiumshop. it might be time for a little dd in the research bury and of course a german ship in the armory for coal. and for the most of us, one unreachable steelship. WG you have become a little predictable.

There is a lot of us that have shipbuildingtokens to spare and we had a lot of other tokens that wasn't used and you automaticly change them into credits. Most of us allready have a lot of credits and have no use for more. why not change them into steel and put steel into the research bury. make it possible to change coal into steel. Do something right that benefits the players and not only WG

Thanks mate.

 

That system was so good in the filth event but with unlimited draws it looses its strengths....

Unlimited draws are another 'spit in the face' from WG I don't want to be a part of.

 

I'm sure they will push this scam to many players (just look how many guys bought the PR despite all fiasco regarding the event) but each to their own I guess.

 

When you enter the WG HQ there is a poster saying "How can we manipulate our playerbase into overpaying for useless stuff?"
