I do have a lot of free time on my hands. I can deal with a Warships grind that requires a lot of activity. See the Benham in my port. I can deal with a hard grind dropping a piece of garbage. See the PEF in my port.
This PR grind is a right punch in the kisser. Not only is it "Must Play Every Day!" to get the tokens to speed up building, if you for an unfathomable reason, like I don't know, a yearly visit to the family, can't play for a few days you are basically forced to buy doubloon booster packs.
No one can tell me that this was not deliberate.
It's basically misleading people, it's the attempt to see how far they can go with "It's free*!" Because as it stands, I don't see anyone but those people buried under Dragon flags and the three god tier XP camos get all those missions done. And even these people will struggle.
*Free if you forego doing anything other than playing WoWS for 10+ hours each day the event is on. Grind more, durak!
There would be choices to make the grind and anything involved more reasonable. The requirements for the missions are flat-out bonkers and designed to enforce spending on premium account time, expensive camo (Type 59 at least) and loads and loads of dragon flags.
Quite bluntly, I don't think I would be able to complete this grind fest, even if I were to tell my mother and grandparents "Sorry, can't come and visit you, have to spend all my time grinding to maybe get a free ship."
I mean, 85k base XP. Seriously? I've had wins where the best on the winning team barely cracked 1500 BaseXP in a T8 game. T10 games where the 1800 base XP meant top of the team.
