Basically my own personal notes on what I've been able to find out, work out and dig out from the various press releases, CCs and in-game info.

The link is to a google sheets containing a summary, and on there is a link to the actual spreadsheet I used. https://docs.google.com/document/d/1baoHtLjX4gP8kbpuhR3zgWGSA0CaGgbSWe4HT0v6jkM/edit?usp=sharing

I posted it to reddit, but thought I might share this here just in case someone found it useful.

I just watched Flamu talking about the grind, he says he saw a Puerto Rico in his very first co-op battle, the person driving it told him he bought it for 58,000 doubloons. He had just 120 games on his account.

That's why I'm going to just grind Coal, credit and tech tree ships instead of whatever "Port Rice" is :Smile_sceptic:

 

Why's my tech tree ship discount btw??? :Smile-angry:

Yup.   By the time my 25% voucher appears at Christmas I'll have enough steel and coal to get myself the Black, Georgia and Thunderer and still have coal left over.  

Ill take them any day as they are free

Yeah, I saw that, it’s really sad.

Someone like me, who’s grinded the Xmas ships for the past 3 years, will miss out, while newbies with cash will be driving this ship.

WG can’t even use the reason “It’s a T10 ship, for the best and most dedicated, it’s not going to be easy” because they’ve already made it clear that newbies with large wallets can get the ship.

What happened to not selling T10 ships? Was that ever a thing?

My mind is getting old.  Do they normally have one over Christmas or will it be the lunar new year event?

WG has turned back on their words throughout 2019

We can't give UK CLs HE shells because they would be too strong. = Smolensk contradicts that

There will never, ever be submarines in the game! = We are happy to invite our players to test the upcoming submarines!

There are more but I can't be bothered to write down all of them.

think twice about getting the USA Black DD

I have the black and don't play it much because out of all the DDs I have played in this game, the black is by far the most easiest DD to hit in smoke and takes max damage when hit.

Even when you are moving in smoke or haven't even fired a shot, the enemy always seem to be able to hit you. I once sat in smoke didn't fire a shot wasn't even spotted when I popped the smoke, but yet I still got hit by a BB that was 16km away from me. 

if you do get the black take notice at how easy the enemy ships hit you while u are in smoke.

I thought of all that but to be honest, I don't do enough to get the steel for a Stalingrad so I may as well blow it on something.

I enjoyed it during testing but the game has changed since then

might be better  off getting the flint 

but I do understand how you feel on wanting to get a high tier DD 

but you just don't see many black DDs around in random battles or coops .

and as I said when I do play it, I get hit so easy in smoke but yet I don't get that same issue when I play other DDs .

I think that, because players screamed out that black is OP with its raider that WG made it so easy to be hit in smoke to counter the radar

Having an excuse for everything - WG style:

- Smolensk is a Soviet ship so it doesn't count.

- In regards with Submarines: Chieftain's personal thoughts and opinions does not represent/coherent with WG.

Sounds like some countries that blame everyone else for their wrong doings.

I thought that was standard practice for politicians and people in business.

I got Georgia before Puerto Rico was a thing. I enjoyed playing her.

I rather get Iron for Stalin/Black and/or Coal for Thunderer/Smolensk.
