**Earlier today I made an opinion post about how I thought upgrading boats is way too expensive:**

https://forum.battlebay.net/threads/upgrading-boats-is-way-too-expensive.23758/

Later, I felt like finding out exactly how much gold would it cost me to upgrade my ship from lv1 to lv50 and how much time. So I did the math and here are the results:
First of all, I had to find out how much more expensive is it to upgrade from one level to another one because the cost increases as you upgrade the boats. To know that and because all ships cost the same, I took the info of how much costs to upgrade my lv15 Fixer (383.000) and my lv18 Guardian (558.000) and divided by 3 (because there’s a difference of 3 levels between both). The result was 56.333,333...

Knowing this I just starting adding and subtracting. I started with lv18: 552.000+56.333=608.333+56.333=644.666+56.333=720.999+...... you get the idea.

Obviously there’s an error range but it’s not too big. When doing this I got that at level 47 the cost of upgrading was 2.185.657 and in reality is 2.100.000. So yes there is but when dealing with such big numbers is not very important.

But the real question is... how much does it cost to upgrade it? What’s the total amount of gold that you need to have a lv50 boat?

Well ladies and gentlemen, it’s

**48.631.500!**
Yes you read right! Close to 49million of gold. It’s much more than I expected honestly. And actually the error range is makes it look like it’s less that what actually is. Add a couple thousands to this number and that’s the real result.

At last... how much time will it take us to upgrade it?

Well, winning 300.000 of gold every day, it will take us just 162,105 days. It’s just crazy...

Honestly, I wanted to upgrade my boat to lv50 but now I don’t feel like it anymore. I’ll stop wasting resources in something that’s almost impossible to have/take way too much time and effort.

This needs a huge change.
