If I have a nation fully researched do I still get national blueprints for it? I'm thinking no, but not sure. 

 

And I'll be surprised if this hasn't been asked and answered before.  So I did a quick search, but I didn't find anything definitive.

 

Reason I'm asking is I've got enough nationals to fully research a few nations with some extras left over.  And if doing so means I won't draw those nationals anymore than it may be worth it even though it means burning the necessary universals. 

 

If this does turn off future national prints is there any reason not to do this?  Other than the possibility of new lines for that nation or universal blueprint numbers of course, cause I know those are concerns.

 

Thanks in advance.

You will not get national blueprints from exceptional achievement rewards (or whatever they call them) for nations that you have fully researched.

Precisely this reason. I fully researched the British line long before they did blueprints, and well before they released the light tanks. I had no prints for the British line to kick off the light tank grind, I received a few before I was finished.

I got the Italian one's for the Holiday Op's, don't need'em right now.....      However, while I have them all Researched and Most of the Line in my Garage, the Talk of the Italian Heavies makes them Useful....      Add to that the Russian Double Tap Line coming, Brit Armored Cars in Development, Talk of Japanese TD's, even a Completed Grind isn't so Complete anymore....

 

I do still get alot of Universal BP's, but I'd dare say if you start seeing alot of National ones outside of Holidays like this, and the Line is Complete, expect to see Future Tanks coming....        Not Soon maybe, but in the Pipeline.....

I thought that blueprints for a vehicle or a nation that were researched both turned into universals.  No?  Just vehicles?

Researched Vehicles and Completed Nations will be Autimatically Converted to Universals.....      The Holiday Op's BP'S you Earned were 60 per Nation, these didn't Convert, without the New Lines coming they're Essentially Useless for most Players who've been around a While....      It why some people aren't Happy they can't Change them to something Useful, or Sell them Back...      

 

Besides, Universals while having a Use, really aren't worth as much as a National or Tank Related BP Fragment.....

Except nationals are worthless without them, aren't they?  I mean, you can't use pure nationals to research a vehicle - it's got to be nationals plus universals.  No?

The Universals are for Filling in Gaps when you don't get Fragments for the Tanks themselve's....      The BP's are there to keep Free XP use to a Minimum for those that don't Build Free XP from the Start, like Newer Players....     

 

Older Players learned long ago to keep Free XP On Hand, that's why some of us have Premium Tanks as well as others that don't have Accelerated Turned on....      Makes BP Fragments less Neccessary when you have a Full Tanks worth of XP Lined up and Convertable XP on Tap.....     I have almost 300K Free XP Sitting and another 1.64 Million in Convertable, this time Last Year I had 2.2 Million Convertable and another 1 Million Free that was used already with the Xmas Gold from 2018....        I also have yet to actually Use any BP's since they started them, they're only there to Help with Grinds, not Bypass them.....

Correct. [universals have to work with nationals]

 

Which is kinda silly - you'd think a universal would be like a "wild card" that you could put anywhere.  And that vehicles would be available for just nationals, if needed.  :amazed:
