Missouri - does anyone actually get 750,000 XP without converting?

I could get Missouri today if I wanted. I have about 150k free XP and another 800k or more XP banked on elite ships.

It would require over 25,000 doubloons to convert the XP though, or about $100 US.

As probably the most desirable premium ship in the game, the price tag is not unreasonable I guess. (two and a half Atagos, approximately) Is that how most people obtain this ship though, or do most people actually manage to accumulate 750k free XP without converting? How many games would that take, even?

I'm on 625k atm and will probably have to pay at most $10 for it. I too would already have it if I hadn't used 200k to get my 1st 19pt skipper (it was worth it though and, at the time, I didn't know Misery was going away).

S4pp3R 500k+/3.5k battles : >140 freeXP/battle

drakon233 850k/16k battles : 50 freeXP/battle

Moldavia 825k/5k battles : 165 free XP/battle

ahwai82 1170k/8k battles : 146 free XP/battle

 

....

About 5-6,000 battles required. Quite a grind, but do-able if you dedicate the time and don't use the XP for other things. Out of reach for me.

No one will admit to converting the XP then? :3

 

(I realize I'm using battle numbers which aren't counting coop/operations, but we'll have to just run with that.)

in random battles i never really use the flag or camo much, just not consistent as you will take losses

i was sitting at around 525k fxp back in dec, but rightly so operation narai is on so use all the camo plus flag is save up and take in like 6 to 8K fxp per match hence i got missouri in just 3 days

you are sitting now at 150K, you need to buy doubloons to convert if not just forget it and go for musashi

I got the Missouri and Musashi without converting. Have enough for the Nelson but am still contemplating if I should get it.

I do run Premium time though, so I suppose they weren't completely free.

It take me a year to save ~600k free exp even don't usually have premium account (only if i have plenty of time to play) and only have harekaze is tier 8 premium ship, so it not impossible, you just need time to save up.

But i think i will gonna pay for the rest since seem like i don't have enough time left to grind:cap_tea:

I will confess guy's. Yep, I did some converting. 

I started with a "rainy day" Free XP bank of 410k and was considering the Nelson. When the News dropped about "Mighty Mo" disappearing, it was what the heck, I will regret it if I don't pick it up. So with Alabama, Tirpitz, Hood and DoY under one arm and a fist full of economic camos and signals under the other. I dived into co-op battles. It took about 5 days but it was worth it. I think that 5 days cost me about 10K in doubloons. 

A side benefit was the commander XP and credits picked up along the way.

If I had missed out on the Missouri, I am certain too have cried tears of blood.

All the best

One of my clan mate do it in 1 year using all his available free boost from events, flags and camos, ... Etc.

He got 600k free exp throughout the long grind and rush the 150k free exp with all possible freebies in 3 days since he fear it would be gone next patch.

I was at around 500k FXP give or take and just converted the last 250k as I got a bit impatient after watching a great Mighty Mo replay sent it to a youtuber. Might have been Jingles.

Easiest 1 credit I have spent ever. It's go time!:etc_red_button:

I've used a lot over those battles. Like A LOT. So 500k is not accurate for 3.5k battles.

Trick I use is anytime there's bonuses to first win, stack all XP flags and best Camo on all your best ships for first win, you can score 10k free in good games.

One of the best runs I had was after I got Kii there was a +300% bonus to it, so scored so much free XP over that period (I'm a decent IJN BB player).

I'm the only few people who hasn't convert any doubloons into free XP .
the day Missouri was announced years ago is the first day I start collecting free XP from 10k to 750k in November last year. 
and this is only accounted only premium accounts and rare occasional papa flags (no camo and special flags whatsoever since its expensive to get). 
all I have to do is play regularly. it will take you awhile until you get a halfway toward 750k XP

however after introduction of operations especially narai, you can start spam flags and camo without fear of wasting your precious camo/flags. That way you can get 750k in around 3-4 months since operations give more consistent result than random battles providing you win 5 stars operation.

also it take me 3 months to get nelson after I got Missouri 

next goal is musashi for another 750k FXP

warned: in order to achieve this, you have to accept the fact you can't use free XP to unlock modules or get new  ship or you will drag your progress down.

The best way to grind the Free XP necessary before the 7.2 update is to play lots of games on the Missouri!

Oh riiiiiiiiiight *smug grin* 

My 520 games on the Missouri is the only reason I could get Nelson and Musashi on the days they were released without exchanging a doubloon in my life :P

I realize Im not being helpful here, I'll show myself out.

I got most of my fxp for missouri through clan battles by stacking fxp flags. I believe that in cb with the 300% xp bonus and putting all the fxp flags and camos, you could get 30-40k fxp in a single win, though I didnt have all the flags so i only got around 12k per win. And then used the dubs i got from clan wars to convert around 75k fxp, all the rest was grinded in a month or two
