    V-25 Jousting Tourney!

    All flags allowed and ideally port, yes. That being said, we've played the first set of rounds last Friday. I tried to contact players in-game, as well as on twitch, the discord and here.

    STEEL MONSTERS CAMPAIGN - Worth it?

    Definitely not a grind, plus you have a lot time to do it. These are the kind of missions that you can do passively while playing the game, there's a tier requirement, that's about it.

    STEEL MONSTERS CAMPAIGN - Worth it?

    Considering this (and the PEF, which will be available to players soon, so not really) is this the only example of steel being behind a "pay wall", I wouldn't jump the gun too soon. At the end of the day, this is less than a Ranked Season's worth of steel, and can only be considered a steel "injection". As such, WG has always offered "shortcuts". Examples are convertible free XP or premium ships for money grinding.

    STEEL MONSTERS CAMPAIGN - Worth it?

    It has to be said though that for free players, it would also be quite a kick in the... well you know, if they were excluded from acquiring these sought after camouflages in greater quantities.
  11. Below I've written up all tasks and rewards for the Steel Monsters Campaign. I've also done some calculations/estimations, looking at whether the campaign is worth the price tag. Now obviously 50 euros is quite an amount to "fork over" for a set of missions, so what do you get, and is it worth it? Set 1 Tasks 1 2 3 4 5 Final Mission Earn 3000 free XP Earn 15000 XP (modifiers) Destroy 3 enemy battleships Cause 40000 damage to destroyers Cause 200000 damage to ships Earn 1 million credits Reward 5x New Year 2017 5x Type 3 New Year 5x Frosty Fir Tree 10x Sierra Mike 3x Mosaic 500 Steel, Big Santa Box Highest items worth: 600d for Mosaic 2,70€ for Big Santa Box Set 2 Tasks 1 2 3 4 5 Final Mission receive 1 million of potential damage Incapacitate or destroy 50 modules Destroy 4 cruisers Cause 250000 damage Hit citadels 10 times Earn 20000 XP (plus modifiers) Reward 5x New Year 2017 5x New Year Streamer 3x Asian Lantern 10x India Delta 7 Days of premium 500 Steel, Big Santa Box Highest items worth: 300-600d for 3x Asian Lantern (do not own any at the time of writing) 1250d for 7 Days of Premium 2,70€ for Big Santa Box Set 3 Tasks 1 2 3 4 5 Final Mission Earn 250 ribbons Earn 30k commander XP Earn 20 flooding or fire ribbons Hit citadels 15 times Cause 100000 damage to BBs Earn 1,5 million credits Reward 5x Type 3 New Year 10x November Foxtrot 5x New Year Streamer 7 Days of Premium 10x Victor Lima 750 Steel, Big Santa Box Highest items worth: 1250d for 7 Days of Premium 2,70€ for Big Santa Box Set 4 Tasks 1 2 3 4 5 Final Mission Earn 300 ribbons Earn 10 Capture or Defense ribbons Earn 50k Commander XP Cause 80000 damage to cruisers Cause 300000 damage Earn 30000 XP (plus modifiers) Reward 5x Frosty Fir tree 5x New Year Streamer 10x India Yankee 10x Mike Yankee Soxisix 7 Days of Premium 1000 Steel, Big Santa Box Highest items worth: 1250d for 7 Days of Premium 2,70€ for Big Santa Box Set 5 Tasks 1 2 3 4 5 Final Mission Earn 10 spotted ribbons Destroy or incapacitate 70 modules Earn 30 torpedo, flood and fire ribbons Destroy 4 destroyers Earn 15000 free XP Play 1 battle Reward 5x New Year Streamer 10x Juliet Charlie 7 Days of Premium 10x November Echo Setteseven 3 Spring Sky 1250 Steel, Big Santa Box Highest items worth: 325d for Spring Sky 1250d for 7 Days of Premium 4,50€ for Big Santa Box Summary: 4000 steel 28 days of premium in sets of 7, equating to 5000 dubloons here. In the premium shop, you can however buy 30 days for 2500, so we'll use that instead: 9,95€ 4x Big Santa boxes, 2,70€ each: 10,80€ 1x Big santa box: 4,50€ 2019d, closest is 2500 for another 9,95€ 80x Flags of different types, 50x medium tier grind camouflage roughly 16~€ at store prices. Lunar New Year camouflages, again, roughly: 1250-1500d~: 7,25€ Total: 58,45€ if we're generous. Several items cannot be purchased in the store however, so for these there can only be rough estimation. In addition, buying some of these items give you extra doubloons (481d), and premium time (2 days). So all in all, you are getting at least 49,99 out of this mission set. HOWEVER, as a long time player, our main interest will not be in these smaller items, like the medium stage grind camouflage, or the non-economy flags. Indeed the interesting items are the 3x3 Lunar Camouflages, which - come on WG, 3? - and the steel. 4000 of it. Now don't get me wrong, you are getting your money's worth out of it, but worth doesn't necessarily mean it is worth it for you. Again, this would be more of a complaint if you wouldn't get all of the above PLUS the steel. I'm sure the steel alone is worth quite a bit, but that still doesn't make it feel less like a lot of the mission items are filler material. As for the missions and task themselves, they seem pretty easy, and not too... frustrating. So is it worth it? Probably, but that depends on how you value the items above.

    [EXCERPT] WGFest 2018 - RUBBs and RNCVs

    I mean, for it to be a carpet bombing, the bombs would have to be dropped along a path, as opposed to be dropped in a single area. Therefore a stationary target will only be hit by a few of these bombs, as opposed to a moving target, which could be subject to more bombs along the target path.

    [EXCERPT] WGFest 2018 - RUBBs and RNCVs

    I'd say the contrary, carpet bombing sounds like a "tracking a target's path" kind of drop, in which case a stationary target wouldn't be as affected as something travelling at speed.

    [EXCERPT] WGFest 2018 - RUBBs and RNCVs

    Big bulks for good torpedo protection? As for their mobility, mid tier looks quite dated, probably around 20-27 knots, and probably moving up in speed at higher tiers. Perhaps Lenin will be an indicator of their maneuverability?
