About new russian branch split, I have around 750 000 free exp, i was planing to save it for Alaska but would it be better to spend it to research Moskva and get it? Also I have around 180 000 coal so thats another option to get it, since I have des moines and wont get Salem, and Yoshino is not that good as I was hoping for it.

I would really appreciate your advice what would be the best choice now?

Use the FXP to unlock Moskva now.

 

It should be much cheaper this way, than paying the future price in premium resources, which is either 200+k coal or 2 million free XP for a Tier X ship vs Alaska's 1 million price.

 

Even if you have the coal right now, better save it die another ship that you can only get this way. Unlike Free XP, which you can grind, coal is a gated/limited resource.

No, I am sorry. But I am sure one of the regulars will chime in, who can give you at least a rough estimate. :)

Next thursday for the event, moskva goes away in 9.5 though, in 5 weeks. Just grind it out regularly, 5 weeks is plenty.

The approach I might take is to assess which resource you have less trouble acquiring: coal or free xp?

 

If it's coal, then maybe save your free xp; if it's free xp, then research Moskva.

 

Some other factors:

  • If you research Moskva, you'll only be spending free xp (if WG are to be believed - check the final patch-notes); we're told that researching the ship is sufficient i.e. you don't have to actually have it in port, which'll save a lot of silver (plus you'll get the permaflage for free when it converts to semi-premium.
  • The economy on Alaska (as a full-on premium) is somewhat better than Moskva most likely will be.
  • Moskva (as a T10) will be probably be of more use for 'special' modes, such as Clans, Ranked etc.
  • Which play style do you prefer - a ship you don't enjoy playing is of rather less utility.
  • As far as I know, we don't yet know the coal price for the 'new' Moskva, but there's a good chance it'll effectively be higher than silver Moskva (depending on how you value the various resources relative to each other).

Neither ship is vanishing (as far as we know) any time soon, so whichever you select, this isn't a 'last chance' thing....

You still have more than a month to grind it out.. 

I say, keep your Fxp and coal, and grind it!

if you have time grind.

 

if you don't grab it.

 

Either way I applaud you for having so much fxp. I never seem to manage it and the most I have is less than 100k usually :/

You can still use FXP one day before Moskwa becomes premium.

No need to do it now.

 Moskva is a real good ship, go for it. Alaska, well, good ship too, but no rush, you can get it later.

you don't need Moskva for randoms or ranked, many other ships work perfectly fine. But if you want to do clan battles, Moskva is good ship to have. Cause many other tier X are suboptimal in clan battles. On other side if you need premium to farm silver, Alaska is exelent choice, and tier 9 is currently best tier for MM.

I may have missed it but Is Moskva going to be available for any other resources at all?

Depending where you are on RU cruiser line, split comes in 0.9.5 I think, so every battle done reduces FXP cost of getting Comrade Moskva.

 

That said, unless Moskva gets some substantial buffs/changes along the way, I don't see her being worth FXP nor Coal price. She is okay, but you can get better than "okay" for the same price.
