    • No the Missouri thing have not changed my habits

    • Yes
    • No but I will
    • No and I am not grinding for it

    • I will save to be prepared if the Missourithing is repeated
    • No Missouri was a one time thing
    • Dont have missouri
  4. 4. If you grind for Missouri or other future release do you convert XP?

    • I never convert
    • I convert only when it is an offer and then limited amounts
    • I convert when I need regardless of offer
    • I convert huge amounts so I am always prepared
  5. 5. If you do not have Missouri how will you do in the future

    • Save Free XP if its a ship that I want and not use it to something else
    • Save Free XP for a ship that I want but still use it now and then
    • No change will not save FreeXP for a ship too expensive
    • Have Missouri not applicable

One thing that has crossed my mind after the Missouriaffair with 750000 FreeXP as demand is I have started to be more cautious in usage when I grind the ships.

In various comments I at least have been given the impression that it might be other ships that might be bought this way..


 

Therefor whether you now grind for Missouri or have started again with a new "savings account" I am wondering if you are as generous with the FreeXP as before or if you are influenced by the Missouri affair.

Personally I am grinding far more the stock hulls even at the horrible ships and FreeXP an entire ship is not an option.

But I have lots of premium camos from the Santas boxes which eases the grind.


 

It is for me not a problem to buy FreeXP because I have lots of XPs that can be converted but I have so far been more inclined to spend doubloons on premium account for the indirect buff to FreeXP than to convert directly. I am curious how you others do. I have Missouri now but I want to have some for future use and to only use when really necessary not just when the grind is boring or slightly annoying, my bar has been significantly raised. I also play Anshan and Tirpitz w FreeXP camo bonus just for FreeXp increase, lots of NY Camo gives it but they will run out after some months.


 

I know there are several aspects so I have made 4 questions there are certainly many alternatives and variants but I see them as a point of discussion.

I did not change my behaviour. I used Free XP only for very serious cases of stock grind and only for a part of it. That is reason I got Missiouri without converting Free XP and I am at 100k Free XP again after 6 weeks.

But I try to use the Free XP booster more often as I have hundreds of them lying around.

I changed my free-xp behavior after getting USS Misery: I am more carefree and tend to use free-xp for a lot of things, like instantly getting the top hull of any new ship. I feel like getting Missouri was a threshold after which saving up free-xp has lost its purpose. So I spend them quite a lot more than before.

I've played the Missouri under 5 times since getting it and I grinded for two months lol...

 

It's a popular ship, be interesting to see how much money it's made for WG. I paid nothing for mine, even the free XP conversion was via doubloons I already owned via Xmas boxes.

 

Currently building a stockpile for the next BB line, hopefully RN.

Last question should have "I convert when there's an offer and did a million free XP."

I used to put free in xp into ship upgrades until the Missouri challenge went live. I'm grinding it, slowly but surely. I no rush whatsoever: I see it as a sport to grind it. 479k now and oozing forward... I actually started to like grinding ships from the bottom! It makes me appreciate the upgrades that much more. Y'day won my Bismarck's B hull. Finally somewhat of an answer to airplanes!

Even before the Missouri was announced I had 100k free XP so I was already very frugal with my free XP usage. Never converted to free XP before, and I won't start now, the first and only time was for getting the remaining 400k for the Missouri when there was a special on XP conversion. Even then most of the doubloons came from SCs (3k in one and 4.8k in another).

I have over 750k required to get it but I am waiting for more news on the anime ships if there is going to be an anime Yamato I figure it will take a tier 10 to get a tier ten and then I need the XP to free up from the Bismarck or maybe it also costs free XP to then decide if that would be a greater ships to have. I stock up on XP from now on though no more mudules early research you never know what is still to come.

I've stopped throwing away free xp like it's nothing now. I'll only use it if I'm say 30 or so xp away from an upgrade. But earning it without converting is really proving a struggle. I have a bunch of free xp camo, and flags which I can use at some point. But I may use a bunch of it for stock Izumo when I make it, as I've heard stock is a bother. 

 

Actually owning Missouri would be nice, I only own Japanese battleships so it would be nice to have another higher tier one. I've seen her do well in games also.

I would want to keep the free XP for the future, but the Missouri isn't my cup of tea. I'm saving up the free XP in case there's a ship I just NEED to have like the Enterprise or a ship which just seems like endless fun like the super-Akizuki. An Iowa, even one with radar, isn't something I'm personally willing to drop free XP on.

 

Edit: I HAVE changed my free XP expending habits in the time frame of the Missouri, but it's not because I needed to do so. There were just some ships that had mandatory upgrades i.e. FCS and plane upgrades for the Taiho, or some ships I am just not willing to play any longer like the Emerald.

No Missouri was a one time thing 

I dont have Missouri

 

cause people that dont have missouri cant skip that question (you must answer all questions in poll to vote)

I don't own or ever will Missouri. A curious concept but one I don't require.

I have tons of premiums and my fxp goes up and down as I spend it, but is normally in the 100's of thousands.

I use it exclusively for upgrading modules. I never run a standard ship, life is too short and money isn't an issue.

I try not to cut a ship grind short. I have skipped ships but I'm aware the precursor always teaches you (normally) lessons you are going to need.

I'll normally unlock a load when the exchange rate goes to 35 -1 instead of the normal 25.

When I switched to WoW's from WoT I figured it may be a more expensive game as it lends itself to an older audience a bit more (imo).

But I would save fxp for a different ship of the same concept. Missouri just didn't do it enough for me to warrant the expense.

I'm saving. Started prior to christmas and I'm currently at about 250k. I expect to be done with it sometimes late in summer or early fall (barring any catastrophic misclicks), so this is a long-term project... Basically, my strat is to only use papa papa whenever there is a 100%++ win bonus and then only in conjunction with +100% xp camo. That way, I get about 1k free xp on a win.

only change for me, is i started using my +% free exp flags to help save up more free xp.

But not grinding for missouri, too close to the Iowa.

Maybe in the future, if a truly uniqe must-have come along. But probably not :)

I don't have the Missouri (yet), and seeing as I cannot for the life of me get the Iowa to work (that damn thing is citadel city :ohmy:), I'm not in a particular hurry to get her either... Then again, none of the Tier 9+ ships I have unlocked/am close to unlocking interest me much either (Tier 7-8 is my sweetspot), so my slowly accumulating free xp hoard (currently sitting at ~300k) may eventually end up still being used to get her, if for nothing but the crazy income... which, seeing as I'm currently sitting at 100m credits is totally what I need... :trollface:

I have not been using my freeXP since I got Fuso so it had piled up nicely. And I'm in no hurry to get my last "grind" goal that is Yamato so I took Missouri as I had North Carolina and Iowa was on my "shopping list" so to say.

 

So now I can use same captain in NC and "Iowa" and still have 100K freeXP.

 

And some day this scrub will be sailing the mighty Yamato. Hopefully before this year's trip to the museum. :D

Since I have no interest at all in Missouri, I haven't changed my habits with Free XP. I use it in the normal ships every time I think it's necessary (mainly to avoid 1st hulls).

 

Now, if another ship of my interest becomes available in the future, I don't think I'll waste a single doubloon converting XP. To be interesting to me it will have to be in a lower tier, so it's supposed to be cheaper. I'll simply try to grind the free XP.

I have 505,328 Free XP.  I don't have nor want the Missouri; and I won't convert.

 

However, my habits have changed... I want to save Free XP on the off chance that in the future WG will have a ship I do want.
