    I have 18000 tokens

    No, I did not. This was from the directives, topped up with the weekend-only missions. There were two more BB directives I could have finished but chose not to, so the total as I understand it would have been 18800.
  2. The PR event was the first of it's kind, mistakes were made. Previously the closest thing was the Cossack, which was "pay to finish". The PR was the first "pay in advance to grind faster", and it was the first designed not to allow the final reward ship to be obtained without paying. If you paid the $50 or $70, the grind was reasonable, so essentially the event boiled down to a chance to buy the PR for %30 off. I declined. Odin and Anchorage kept the model, but communicated it to players far better. Unfortunately they also doubled down on "bundling", where the main reward cannot be obtained without also paying for additional flags and bonuses. Un the upside the "mid-point" reward ship has generally been obtainable without too much effort. (Anchorage did not have one, but offers a nice FXP bonus instead) Still, as far as the main ships go, I declined to participate. I would not wish Yahagi on my worst enemy. Meaning, I will decline to participate on this dockyard too, making it 0:4. What the PR event taught me is that there are parts of the game I don't need to concern myself over. Dockyard is one, RB is another.

    I have 18000 tokens

    I doubt I'll like Kansas, based on the fact that New Mexico is my least favorite BB in the US line. I'm in no desperate need for consumables either though. It comes down to: Do I want the trophy to honor my completion of the event, or do I take the money and run ...

    US Battleships Event

    As it requires a certain level of stupidity on the part of the enemy, Defended ribbons are easier to get them a low tiers. Eventually I got mine at T8, with Z-23. A Pommern wanted to push and the Cap just happened to be in his way I think.

    OMG Kansas is terrible

    The last few days have seen all the unicums get their hands on Kansas as the final directive was released. I've never been in a battle and seen one do better than mid-pack on the score. That says to me that either the ship is either terrible, or terribly unfun. To me it's pretty simple. I don't often play battleships, and when I do 90% of the time I play battlecruiser-types or at least fast battleships like N. Cal, Iowa, Richelieu and JB. New Mexico transposed to high tier holds no appeal whatsoever. That said I don't think the ship is outright bad so much as a late game bloomer. You have to play much more conservatively than most people realize.

    Careful, the drop rate for the camo in the Halloween lootboxes is quite low. You are better to buy one of the ones offered outright.

    And I've done it

    Congrats. I'm still just finishing up the third set, and the fourth and fifth look pretty immense. Third went pretty fast because I didn't have to play low tiers and there was a 3 star challenge which was "be in the top 5 of your team 14 times" which is like "well, duh!" so ... Ok - brass tacks now, when I get these what to use them on? Seattle, Buffalo, Jutland, Z-46, Izumo, Iowa, FdG, Roon are the T9 I have or will get soon (Z-46) that I don't have permacamo for. Realistically, Z-46, Izumo, Iowa or perhaps Roon...

    Fat Girl is Fat

    A safe bet. The camo is 3-4-5-6 = 18,000 tokens. I have 15275 and just over 2800 left to get from the last directive. If there is no more weekend missions it means you had to play everything offered just to get the permacamo, which seems excessive.

    US BB 4> Ruling The Waves

    Or "Nay!" Early reviews of this ship are not positive, to put it kindly.

    German 2nd Camo scheme list (Not all of them)

    They are pretty - ah - subtle differences for the most part. Black becomes light grey, light grey becomes dark grey. The basic problem (and this was an opinion formed when I first got the option) is that, unfortunately, I like the original scheme best in every case. It doesn't help that the alternate camo basically looks like a generic USN camo, the KM distinctiveness is lost.

    USS Florida

    The bundles are consecutive, so Florida requires 3-4-5-6-7 and 20k for a total of 45,000 tokens, or 30,000 doubloons, or about $150 US minus whatever tokens you can get free, by my count less than 15,000. Florida's cost in the premium shop will be about 10,000 doubloons, or $50.
