Tomorrow the ability to do missions to get a "free" Colorado opens up to us in the Summer Battles Event.

I will be taking the opportunity to reset both my USN BB lines before I do the missions to get a "free replacement" Colorado.

By reseting both USN BB lines at once, I will get double the value from the "free" Colorado.

By my calculations to buy a Colorado and all her modules it costs 8 100 000 credits - this is what you would normally pay of you researched and purchased all these components as part of the normal grind.

Also, to research Colorado and all her modules costs 112 500 XP.

Resetting both USN BB lines at once means I will be saving 16 200 000 credits and 225 000 XP.

Just giving others the heads up as to this opportunity.

It's been a while WG is giving a free tech tree ship researched because New Mexico is slow.

 

 

 

 

At some point. Every tier 7s should be as a reward thing. Gneisenau for example. Or even Nagato.

I’m debating doing this as well.

...I, however, cannot bring myself to rest the fat BB line, I just finished grinding Minnesota a week or so ago. I really do not want to grind her again so soon....

Curse you WG, playing a couple of battles is fine, but why make me regrind?

@Max_Battle

Hey Max, how many research points would you get for resetting both USN BB lines? Assuming both had the first rest 2x modifier on them (I’m not 100% sure how the modifiers and bonuses work, never rest anything before).

I need 55K for V2, and from various other rewards, I current have around 20K, so I need 35K.

What it imply, though, is there will be ever widen gap between veteran player and newbie , those who still grinding. Especially Veteran whose got multiple T10 of the same type, can afford to easy reset and then get the T7 and on with the rest , when not hampering their capacity to play on high tiers. So those who can will be given even easier access to more  Research Points, thus OP ships , and those not in , will had a hard time even just catching on that first T10

I mean... if it helps your situation, you can grind it in Co-op, which is much less painful than Randoms.

Randoms don’t pain me too much, it’s just the effort involved. I’ll probably grind the lower tiers, then use my FXP to speed up the higher tiers.

Last time I got a free tech tree ship was 2 years ago.

It was a T8 Chapayev.

Yes please.

Should T8 be considered as well?

Since T7 to T10 already requires an insane amount of work to grind.

Free T10 ship. 

Wouldn't that break the game?

I mean new players getting a really high tier ship will little to no experience?

:fish_book:

 

But then again, WG did sold a T10 "tech tree waifu" ship (for avarice of course).

And a lot of them are newly made accounts.

Isn't the game already broken? You cannot make things any more broken already.

would be great if I gave a flying about the poor excuse that Research Bureau is; But that is me, for those that can and do RB. Thanks for the heads up and best wishes to those that have a crack

One normal line reset at x2 is just over 20k points I think.

Not sure about 1@ x2 and 1@x1 - but that's exactly what I will be doing.

I might reset tonight - can let you know what the hard stats are once I do.

Right, reading this from the wiki;

Research Bureau - Global wiki. Wargaming.net

From V to X you can get 10200. At 2x that's 20400. for the line split, VIII to X, that an additional 9000. I have my doubts that the 2x applies to that.

In each season, the first line reset becomes eligible for double (2x) Research Points Research Points when the Tiers V-X ships in the line are played to a win.

This indicates that you can only apply 2x to one line per season... which makes the fact that you have 2x at the bottom of every unlocked tech tree line really confusing.

I actually find some of the statements in this article sadly hilarious.

There are several ways to use the Research Bureau, understanding that there are two goals: acquire Research Points (RP), and enjoy playing low- and mid-tier ships again.

They do realize that you don't spend much time at low of mid tier? Skilled players blow through those tiers quickly and most of the grind is at the high tiers?

Indeed. You cannot have both Research Points bonuses since it is only 1 per season.

You can reset both, but only the first line you reset will get the 2x bonus.

Yeah, for people new to the process, it is slightly confusing. I don't know why they have 2x at the bottom of every completed line, only to disappear when you reset one.

Which defeat's their narrative of "play low tier".

Campaigns do a better job on making players play low tier. And they get rewarded for completing that campaign.

I can empathise, I just finished grinding Minnesota (by using 100k FreeXP because I couldn't suffer the line anymore) and I don't think I'll ever reset or even play the line again. If it was for a more interesting line split I probably would do what Max plans to do

^^ This.

WG fails to understand that this mode can be very filthy lucre for premium ships.

But hey, "We are currently focused on Random battles".
Two years later, "Our spread $#!* says that operations are not popular".

They could make Battle of Jutland as an operation.

T4 and T5 BB. T4 for cruisers.
