Since there is an upcoming 30% off for tier 8 ships (https://worldofwarships.asia/en/news/common/mission-september-2017/), I decided to write a long post about it. This is more for those cheapskate people, but you can read it for fun. (scroll till the end for conclusion)



Let’s start with table 1 and 2 on how much you can save. Both tables have the same data, just different sorting.

I am not posting other nation as it is troublesome to fill in all, and the price different between nations is not that great (I think, I guess, erm go calculate on your own). The 30% discount for tier VIII is definitely worth it, better than the regular 15% discount (table 3). The amount you saved can be used to buy most of your equipment.

For tier IX and X, the saving is normal/usual, nothing to talk about it since it happens every now and then.

On special occasions, there can be 50% off for equipment (https://worldofwarships.asia/en/news/specials-and-events/boost-weekend-20170721/). See table 5 for calculations. You can buy your ship and wait for the discount on the equipment later. However, I doubt most of you can wait so long for the special module discount, and ended up buying the ship now with all/most equipment so you won’t be disadvantageous during battle. Play a few (or a lot more) more battles, and you will earn back the credits. If only WoWS has the similar inventory like WoT, where you can purchase equipment without ships (correct me if I am wrong), then this will not be a problem when I bought my Des Moines (spoiler).

 

Side story:

Spoiler

I bought my Des Moines at that time because I realised that I can save more than the 15% discount on ship price. Since there I cannot buy them in advance, I bought my Des Moines and then the discounted equipment. For other tier X ships, there will be saving of more than ~$300 000. Tier 9 will definitely save more when compared to 15% discount on ship. We are saving $3,437,500 here (table 5). Hopefully you will have your ship to store the discounted equipment. IF you have more doubloons and ships available, then maybe you want to store the discounted modules (slot 3, 6, maybe 5) there, then demount using doubloons (25 doubloons or equivalent of 37500 credits) when you buy the ship. For me, that is not an option now...:Smile_sad:

Table 6: 30% discount calculation for all equipment for tier 8 to 10

 

 


To sum thing up:

1.       BUY the tier 8 now if you can.

2.       This 15% discount for tier 9 and 10 is usual, you can skip if you want more time to consider (or no credits yet). Next 15% discount will most likely happen in 3 months’ time during Christmas or New Year. 15% saving is still good.

3.       For maximum benefit, you can buy the ship first, then fill in those expensive equipment during module discount (if there is one).

Informative. Thanks

 

I'm already doing everything I can to maximize my returns. Here's one didn't mention:

15th - 19th September - 60% off premium consumables. - Load up all you ships with premium consumables on the last day. Then you can unload them and have a small stockpile.

 

ahem - i now have 104 ships

Dang it. I am still so far away from completing the Mahan grind to get the Benson. I knew I should have played it during the last few first win exp bonus weekends! :cap_fainting:

Oh well I still should have enough credits to buy the Edinburgh and Ibuki.

Thanks for the write-up.

Well, at least I unlocked and fully upgraded Bismarck, NC and Akizuki for the duration of the premium time back then. Got lucky with SC the week before I activated it. Got two SC with ocean soul(100 in total).

Nice. I'm grind to for my GK. That is expensive. I'll probably grind my USN DD and IJN BBs next. Or maybe the USN CAs

Got pretty lucky with SCs when I was grinding for my Yamato too. Got 10m from SC. Sometimes I feel like SCs only appear when I want to powergrind a ship since I normally don't get one. If I do get one, it's always credits or ocean soul.

Credits aren't to my liking when I get SCs. I'd rather get stuff like doubloons or prem boats

Credits don't appear in SCs anymore, so there's that.

Just wondering, are the Try Your Luck SCs the only way to get Premium ships? Because I haven't been using that option and my SCs have been the usual flags and equipment upgrades.

Yes, SC is the only way to get premium ships, but I feel that you should not put too much hope on it, see the SC mega thread

not a lot of premium ships from SC

Oh I meant whether there is any difference between an SC from the Try Your Luck option as opposed to an SC from the credit option and others. 

But glad to know that Premium ships are not common regardless.

My SC luck is gitting better.... 2 weeks ago 50k FXP, this week 1K doubs. And I got both by selecting "More Flags" which I always do. Since "Try your random 4 flags" option has better drop rate than the first three options, my total SC count is low, even though I collected many many crates already. So far I got like 6 SCs.
