    Royal Navy event craps on casual players

    Yeah - unfortunately my friends who play are either on the NA server or play at times I'm not able to get online. Can't blame WG for that though - don't think any MMO has ever managed to create a worthwhile 'Looking for Group' system!

    Royal Navy event craps on casual players

    I've been playing on and off for 3 years and I finally managed to unlock my first tier IX yesterday - that's pretty casual isn't it? I don't play regularly enough to make joining a clan worthwhile or fair on other clan members - my clan has me as the sole member. I do like to play when there are significant events running - RN DDs is kinda important to me as I had family who served and died in the RN on destroyers so it'd be nice to have the option to complete this one. I don't spend money on the game because I can't afford to - ten years on a disability pension makes free to play gaming pretty much my only option. Fair play and thank you to those who can afford to pay extra so I can get some enjoyment from this. But premium ships already earn bonuses in terms of credits and xp - they don't need paywall gated content too - that's moving ever nearer to pay-to-win.

    5 weeks to this update with 4 stages per week - if there's one in each that makes 20 Cossack only directives. How is the calculation flawed?

    I agree the mission demands are reasonable in comparison with the lunacy they have come up with in the past. But there's a difference in asking someone to pay £20 now to have access to all the content (assuming they've got all the guineas so far) and asking for £1.50 at the end of the event to get the same ship - some of us don't have money to waste on the prospect of getting unwanted doubloons in two months' time.. Individually the directive rewards might not be much, but over the course of the current update if one mission in each section is Cossack only that'll be 20 missions and their rewards unavailable. With scenario missions unavailable for solo play, that's another 20 - then there's the next update too... That's called hiding content behind a paywall - but that's another rant!

    There's one guy in the searching for division channel - he's been asking for an hour now...

    I've tried this in the past - after almost 2 hours I finally assembled a division and two of them went AFK at the start of the scenario - not fun...

    Yeah whatever - at least I know the difference between 3 and 8.

    I'm not saying the other directives are difficult to achieve - I'm just pointing out the stupidity of directives which are not accessible - Despite Egoleter's inane reply, tier III ships are the ONLY ones available in the current scenario making one of the directives impossible. Having a directive restricted to the Cossack when completing each stage of the event revards Guineas so you can get a Cossack... o-kay... It's not like earlier events where you could go back and complete objectives after earning the ship (like with Duke of York).

    Ignoring that one of the directives is Cossack only - so only available to wallet warriors at the moment... Another directive is scenario only for ships of tier V or higher - when the Halloween scenario is a tier III scenario - fine if you can get to play in big divisions and choose your scenario, craps on all the casual players - again. All the other directives are able to be earned in scenarios with Tier V or above ships too. Instead of complete 4 of 6 directives to unlock, its a case of empty your wallet or your restricted to these 4 missions. Do WG devs make crap decisions like this on purpose?

    Server problems?

    I'd just clicked on the get container button - probably means I was going to get a supercontainer and the whole thing crashed cos I'm not allowed to get those...

    Bug Reports

    Considering the HSF is a major part of the latest update, why has the voice issue STILL not been addressed by WG? Any tickets related to this bug just get closed down by WG with a comment that 'we know about this' - how about bloody fixing it then?
