Wouldn't expect a mission chain to get an Indianapolis for free. Unless I forgot something, every single free premium ship has been released specifically in time with the mission/campaign to unlock it and the Indianapolis has been around for ages.

 

 

I would expect something more akin to the Viva-la-France event considering the PTS is talking about American Containers where you can unlock various US premiums and the Cleveland (presumably early access like the french BBs). I'd just speculate that they're going to make special missions to collect more containers with Indianapolis missions and sell the ship alongside.

I expect it to be a camouflage for the Indianapolis.

It is a 6-week-event. There has to be more.

Or something similar to Aigle Marathon. As 0.7.5 with US CAs reshuffle will probably come on 30/31 May it is not impossible that there will be a set of mission for free Indy in June. But without any info and guess is good. I expect that we will find out when 0.7.5 is announced.

Complete one lap on the following race track of Indianapolis before the match ends, use BB for track (1) and IJN DD for track (2)

You're right, I misread the dates, it looked like 2 weeks. 

 

6 Weeks... smells like "Duke of York"-campaign, which means a time-gated grindfest with absurd requirements?

The requirements as such weren't bad, but the combination they came in (first an all BB-segment, then an all-DD segment) really did wreck the matchmaker and overall quality of the game. I hope they now switched them up a bit.

Yeah, now the BB segment will go after the DD segment. :Smile_trollface:

And the level of play will make you want to put your head into a wood chipper.

 

Remember this is WG.

 

I am really happy that I own the Indian Police, so if it's a reward ship I won't feel pressured to do anything.

If it's the ship then don't expect doubloons if you already own Indie and finish the campaign.

 

WG have given out credits recently for all Prem vehicle campaigns.

If you expected Indy to match Balansfast then yea, she can be quite underpowered in that regard

Actually, I don't say that Indianapolis is a bad ship. I always stick my neck out and say that Tier 7 Pensacola is not a bad ship either - despite all the hate thrown at her.

 

I have two issues with these ships.  These are valid for me personally, but other people may have a completely different experience of course.

1) I don't like the play style (compared to German, Japanese, French, Russian) cruisers.

2) The skill ceiling seems rather higher than other cruisers at the same tier (except maybe British cruisers - but they have the advantage of so many tools at your disposal)

 

P.S. When the US line was developed they were given strong AA as part of the balancing. This has been power-creeped by other lines, and the CV is not as common in battle as WG thought it was going to be.

It's going to get better since in 0.7.5 they are going to buff it with a faster turret traverse and rudder shift.

Color me happy.
