Yeah, we all have our quarrel with one or more WG decisions, but dang the dockyard is - once again - pure eye candy. Check out the build process, taken from the PTS (not by me):

 

 

So yeah ... WG Artdepartment, thank you! @MrConway forward that please.

 


Personally I'm looking forward to the event. How about you?

what i would love to know is just how many people bought PR and never play her, how many bought odin and never play her, how many will anchorage and every other ship that comes out of what is clearly a hugely profitable gold mine , bit of sunk cost bit of manufactured scarcity and people get confused between cheap and good value , its only the price of a coffee or two! 

i dunno i can just see the tactics the method in it. makes me feel dirty , and not in the good way

Hmmm now there's a dockyard where I might actually be interested in the final reward. Depends how much real money it'll require though, obvs.

Not really no. It's just another of those passive grind events for a ship I have no intention of buying anyway. I'm probably just gonna forget about it and collect the rewards I get from passively playing.

Yes this is the first dockyard ship which is not straight up bad/boring.

1 stage should be 1750 doubloons and you can grind 18/20.

I would say 3500 gold definitely worth the Anchorige.

When this event launches?

Really curious about possible day or week as in some time next week or next month.

 

Just please tell the devs this one thing - comunity BEGS them not to nerf everything to the ground 3 days before launch. :fish_nerv:

I'd say it's safe to expect her to be as much as the Odin (e.g. 3500 dubloons for stages 19 and 20 = 1750 each stage). Marketing it as a 90% discount over the buy on launch day (through buying all 20 stages). Of course that doesn't make it a 90% discount on a T8 ship, but the 3500 dubloons sound ok for a T8 ship. Of course, WG can always be generous and lower the prices.

Latest info is: With the next patch (0.9.8) and runs over two patches (whole duration of 0.9.8 AND 0.9.9).

I won't be taking part in this, but I agree wholeheartedly with the OP; WG's model, texture and scenery department is peerless.

Yeah, quite so. To put it another way, it'll also depend on how many stages I actually manage to complete by playing too!

 

Will be interesting to see if there's a mid-point reward ship, as with the Graf Spee.

Looking at a shipbuilding process in the Dockyard is very relaxing. Though I won't be grinding keeping Anchorage in mind, the 100K FXP reward is definitely worth it. 

Also, has anyone heard any rumors about FDR?

I think this is much more comparable with the Odin event then PR. Only difference is that build points over 20 not give you steel but research points.. not interested in those ( although for players not yet enabled access ( not yet 5 lines researched) to Research it might be a tactic to do so. If only to get access to those 1200 points a month.

 

And instead of getting Graf Spee ( which for most people resulted in 7m credits) you get 100 k FXP as the main intermediate prize.

 

As the final prize, a T8 BB is most of the time more valuable then a T 8 cruiser...But I still suspect it will cost 3500d to complete her. Which is still 1/3 of regular prize.

 

Any reviews about the ship out yet?

As always, I'll play semi-normally, and see where I get to; if I reach a point where I can get the thing for 3.5K doubloons, I probably will - if only because I really like the 'Haida' cammo option (wonder if there'll be a version without the bunting?)...

Oh yeah, WG does a lot of wrongs, but their ship visuals and animation department has always been top notch! :fish_cute_2:

 

As for the event, my wallet is still tightly shut due to Pay to Rico so I couldn't care less. I'll happily take all the free rewards I can get by playing casually (which, I have to admit, is not a lot lately), but I won't go out of may way to complete any mission whatsoever. 

 

So thanks for posting the vid. I get to see the complete building process at least :Smile_Default:

Glad I could help! And even when you don't spend coin ... you can watch at least part of it on your own :cap_like:
