Hi,

 

Is there any way to obtain the Roosevelt cv using doubloons? Or am I really going to have to grind materials to be able to get it?

As far as I know there isn’t. You need steel which you get through ranked and clan battles

Find someone, who owns her, shower him with "real dubloons" until satisfied, buy account = profit.

With nearly every dockyard you can buy steel for doubloons (combined with grinding the missions).

Did the other "farm model" that existed on NA in the past die down? You know, certain unicum clans selling single temporary spots in their clan for real cash (a lot of it from what i've heard) to carry said "new member" through CBs until their steel farming was complete, then kicked out the "new member" and everyone was happy. This was when CBs had bigger teams and pre-free steel for everything though.

No, you need to collect the steel, you can however grind Midway and Haku for free both of which are prob better time investement...

 

IMO unless you are either a hardcore collector or had someone serving aboard her so you want her because od that she aint worth it

Yeah it's sad. But there was also a market for the other way, mercenaries. Today this is a game feature, but back then there were unicum mercenaries on NA and EU (probably all servers) who sold their service to clans for real cash. They made a pretty penny and pushed clans into the high ranks where they didn't belong. A couple of them even streamed this and bragged about it on stream. A popular one of this species got banned because he was smart enough to stream with active aimbot on the screen - pretty sure quite a few here remember this guy and what clan he was from. Certain clans also had alt clans to farm steel and joined them with a group of the same players, jumping from one alt clan to the next, like locusts. This eventually led to player bans, several clan disband and the 3-day wait time between leaving a clan and joining another one. Back then there was no downtime or maybe an hour, i can't remember. You could leave a clan and just join the next one without waiting.

Its funny, that know with mercs, this is all obsolete. Havent even thought about the possibility to make easy cash this way rofl. Im sure it does work, given the fact what this playerbase is paying for other things...

Yea no idea, if thats a thing still in NA, it isnt over here, else we would see it, when facing other hurricane clans right now, but nobody has a non-clan XxX_BISMARCK_SNIPERZ_XxX in their line up :D

Nominal T10 value is 35,000.

 

There is no way they’d sell a steel ship for that.

 

How much would you pay? 50,000? 100,000?

First I had a little laugh too. Then I realized OP's statement is basically the essence of WG's promotion and incentivation of dying oneselve up the tiers, wanting to unlock everything in one go, losing passion for the game and respect for its community more and more and establishing ignorance, learning resistance and unsportsmanship to a level that no other community will ever degenerate to. In no other community than WG's there is close to zero learning curve going along with hundreds and even thousands of hours of in game time. And the worst part is: These players are the majority and their amount grows larger and larger everyday. Give 'em what they want: Tier IXs, tier Xs with legendary modules before the first random battle. Let 'em unlock everything in a wannabe fights against bots and then ruin commited player's games in randoms, let 'em rage and insult after they have suicided. Neglect what has made this game once promising. They will never learn.

I wanna be constructive and helpful for a tiny moment... actually there is a way! 

 

Buy in Dockyard events the whole ship with dubloons and do the Dockyard missions. Usually you get some Steel for that. 

 

@OP Happy whaling!
