if my calculation is correct: even if you buy all bundles (only 50.000 doubloons ) and get only 5 tokens/container, you won't have enough tokens to buy everything...

There seem to be a new strategy. Now you have to buy the perma camo for a ship before you can buy the ship itself. This is made to ensure that you just don't stop to pay if you got the ship but don't need the camo. Nope, you buy the camo first and then the ship.

You can say what you want, but WG is really creative when it comes to milking the whales.

I can't see myself opening my wallet for this one. 

I might engage with the directives. 

Does anyone know if the freebie 'Mikoyan' is any good?

I seem to have a lot of Russian T5 Cruisers in port already.

Yeah. Milking the whales is important to make playing possible for peasants 😁

I like tokens - these usually pay for my premium-time. :Smile_great:

Which is the best way to do it.. Get the camo if you dont get tokens to unlock the ship just play and reserch it in the normal way.  Personaly i would have prefered all the perma camos to come at the start and the Tech tree early access  ships after. That way you have more chance of the Perma camo for the tier VIII and IX ships.

ok and the chances of that?   You need an average of 47.5 tokens a crate to get every thing from the 60 containers possible for missions and Daily shipments, and 20 to get the tier 8 ship..  Getting the Mikoyan after 300 will unlock missions for an undisclosed amount of extra tokens. just 1 300 tokencrate  drops the requirement average to 15 tokens in the remaining 59 containers. so from this mission your guaranteed a tier V prem ship and a good likelihood of the tier VIII if you get all 60 containers

according to the PTS very high I would say...while for the EU-DDs the 10, 20, 30 or 40 drops were distributed quite equally, this had changed on the 0.9.4.-PTS, I thought for some time that only 5 tokens are possible because I received only 5 tokens in many containers...

I think we can be pretty sure that wont be the case.. People predicted this with EU DD's and it was not the case with many unlocking the tier 5-7 ships without outlaying Dubloons. and even if this douse happan you are garanteed the Prem CL Mikoyan

Reward for completing all Directives: the Soviet permanent camouflage for cruiser flag_Russia_6ce701e1c2f2ac3909a68a0a7b23premium_1114542bcd311c388080eea3a4d54a7eV Mikoyan.

Amazing stuff :Smile_trollface:

Quote

Each Soviet container includes 5, 10, 15, 25, or 300 Soviet Tokens

The Soviet Cruisers section of the Armory has been stocked with random bundles. Each of them can be obtained for 500 doubloons.

Casino is back in town boys

Pretty smart idea :cap_like:

I think my wallet will remain closed for this event; at the very least, it's my minor protest against the shabby treatment of the Moskva permaflage owners (of which I'm not one).

 

Besides which, the only one of the new cruisers that's even of slight interest to me is the T8, as it's not 100% made up...

actually... i have camo for ships that i don't own, gained from finishing collections or doing special events, but we talk about tier 7-8

so is not that new, but i must admit that owning them, made me grind for the german and british dd lines, even if i wasn't that interested in them

the final result? both lighting and z-23 need around 6 millions credits and 70.000 exp to be fully upgraded, they are quite bad for my playstyle, and after trying to play them, i made my choice about NEVER play with DD anymore....

 

going back to the main topic, this soviet points are a mess, and follow the same rules of the european one

before, you had a small chance to get a ship from a container drop, and had to grind a lot to have as many containers as possible without any guarantee that the next one could give you a ship

people could open 100 containers and find NOTHING, while here they would at "least" have enough points to buy the first couple of ships

is not a system that i like, but i think is still better than the random container that could drop nothing at all

besides that, i strongly dislike the incoming russian paper ships with the usual sci fi superpowers like super radar and super ap rounds

Do you doubt the shipbuilding prowess of the Rodina? I feel you may lack sufficient revolutionary zeal - to the gulag at once!

My only dilemma is shall I go for the Mikoyan (probably nerfed to port queen level being an easy to get premium), or shall I get the expendable camos for all the tokens, which seem to be the best deal. (I already have enough XP on Schors to unlock Tallin).

i have both the donskoi and the schors with enough XP to unlock the next tier cruiser

actually, after upgrading it fully, the donskoi became a ship that i like quite a bit

but for how this event work, is possible we did saved XP on the schors for nothing, since the first ship of the new line, is quite easy to unlock

I'm skeptical that WG will let a T8 ship to be easy to unlock.

Schors was supposedly one of the better ones... of that sort.
