Hey guys, First post, great game.

 

I was curious, so I've just sat down and tested MY premium ships to see what their FULL repair costs are, to compare with their potential credit incomes.

 

Purely so I can see which will bring in as much credits and XP, even with a bad game. I shall list them here for reference. Feel free to add ones I haven't listed.

 

As of patch 0.5.2.1...

 

Atago = 63000

 

Tirpitz = 78500

 

Mikhail Kutisov = 70000

 

Atlanta = 45500

 

Blyskawica = 29900

 

Warspite = 39000

 

Murmansk = 14300

 

Kamikaze = 12870

 

I think I might start playing my Tier 7 Polish Destroyer a bit more...

"to see what their FULL repair costs are"

 

That's after being sunk.

It's a premium ship; why are you concerned about maintenance costs?

Because premium ships are for grinding credits.

 

Its a good idea to list them OP. I wish there were some stats around that listed average credit earnings for different ships.

Doesn't the profit in premium ships dramatically exceed the cost to maintain them?

Not as much as you would think. Really they aren't that much better than any other ship in game. The biggest perk is being able to train up your other captains.

? You think so?

 

Have to disagree - the credit income between my Murmansk and Omaha is significant - and then on top of that +30% crew XP  ( higher tier premiums get up to +50%) and of course they have perma camo - there is an 22k per battle saving. On premium cruisers the camo is not such a bonus maybe, but on destroyers where running camo is essential that makes even very average games nice earners.

 

I might play a couple of games each and try and do a very rough comparison.

It's cheap to repair as long as....

- you go with a group

- not thinking you're equipped with OP rambo gun or superior (wallet warrior) ship

- know to aim (notably battleships)

- know when to retreat

- etc. << this is important too! D:

Kamikaze / Murmansk are my "to go" ship to farm credits.

 

On average my Kamikaze nets 300k credits in a good game and around 200k in a bad game.

After playing a few more games, it's my opinion that of the Premium ships I own, the Warspite is the best one for earning credts and XP.

 

It has camo that gives 4% inaccuracy to opponents, and a 50% increase in XP.

 

I usually come away with 200,000 credits gained, and about 2000 XP per battle.

 

And that's without premium account. Not bad for a Tier 6 ship.

 

edit: And for some reason, it hardly ever see's tier 8 games...

Albany where

 

I sold the piece of s*)t...

 

And I did this test to get an idea of a premium ships ability to earn credits, COMPARED TO ITS REPAIR COSTS.

 

Not just which one's cheapest to repair. Lower tiers may be cheap to run, but they don't earn as many credits or xp.
