It's far too grindy in my opinion. I already have to research enough stuff in the Jutland and then I have another 225k research wall only to unlock the ship. Why is it so expensive? I can't even use other currencies for it. So it means I have to wait another 225 matches before getting to legendary? Too grindy.
The research price for the Mornarch is just ridiculous.
And considering I've yet to even successfully join a Legendary Fleet match, rather pointless aside from cosmetics once you get there, too.
You most of the time makes 2 to 3k ship xp within one match (and this is without expert mode), so no, it's not another 225 matches with your Jutland.
You can afford it with free xp too, which will increase with any match or can be extracted from completed ships.
Anyway legendary is accessible with t4 ships, legendary matches usualy include less than half t5 ships, an already well developed t4 ships is certainly playable in legendary (newly acquired t4 probably should keep in veteran).
But yes, 225k ship xp and 300k credits are standard prices for t5 ships and it's very VERY expensive.
Point here is still than despite legendary don't run many matches, you can still play your impressive fully upgraded Jutland, have fun with this competive ship within veteran match and still have a goal to achieve.
I'm on this too. They are changing how ships unlock. You will need to buy are research a specific amount on modules before you can unlock it thought. There's a post in the road map forum
