Yes both (and wondering what to pick from those skipped, stupidly hard/restrictive missions to fill my three missionsslots) but why are you asking?

I have Yamamoto, still grinding the Bull.

 

Although I have more US ships the apparent (to me anyway, and completely understandable given the man's history) focus on CVs is holding me up in gaining stars.

Yamamoto I have, but no idea on what ship tbh... I think he's my 2nd yamato captain at the moment?

 

Halsey I am still grinding towards. Only got Yamamoto a few weeks after the introduction of the american campaign. And I haven't been playing that much nor specifically for the campaign. I just let it happen naturally.

(Am at the 5th stage with 1 star I think).

Yamamoto yes! Halsey? Hell no - what for...?

 

(Don’t like US ships much in this game apart from one or two and I have Joe Blob already from when he was still called Seagull)

I asked because I don't recall seeing may "special tracers" that depict them commanding the ship... so I wondered how many players did actually grind them... :Smile_hiding:

P.S.

Perhaps some players don't enable the "special tracers" and deliberately set them to OFF (i.e. in order to "hide" who is commanding the ship)...

huh?

You can just grind credits and xp (first two missions for all stages) over and over and over for Halsey. Basically what I did during clanbattles/ranked as I couldn't be bothered to figure out fitting missions and I certainly won't touch the CV missions for Halsey's last stage anytime soon. (Basically not before the rwork and because I don't own any Tier VIII+ CV)

I have both although I've not got Halsey on any ship.

I don't have the tracers enabled on either as I don't like the looks much.

I'm really bad at grinding the campaigns, so I don't have any of them. Don't need them that desperately...

Got Yamamoto, took me an age because I couldn't be bothered doing any missions but the xp ones, will get Halsey someday but I'm in the same boat and I don't play US ships. I found grinding for them to be making me enjoy the game less and stopped.

On the way to Yamamoto, not even started Halsey.

 

Haven't even got the Shinonome yet either.

 

The tier 8-10 restriction on these missions is annoying (especially for a tier 6 ship) because I am not really grinding anything there at the moment. So I basically have to play my 4 tier 10s or Missouri, my other (slowly progressing) grinds are all tier 6 or 7 at the moment. Plus I find tier 7 to be a better place to play generally where I have good premiums I would rather play than the more static/campy tier 10 meta. 

 

Also I mainly progress through these just doing the XP/credits mission over and over in most cases, especially as one section of Yamamoto was pretty much all high tier carriers.

 

Think these would be better being tier 6+

 

I do like though that you can progress multiple of these at once, whilst still doing other daily missions, plus the RN arc, plus earn containers as well. It's very satisfying when you come out of a good game with multiple goodies unlocked.

I've unlocked Yamamoto the day before Halsey went live. Since I don't have that many high-tier ships, I find myself repeating the credit/XP tasks over and over again. With premium, camo's and flags it goes quite easily that way. The Halsey campaign is way tougher/harder than the Yamamoto one though, I don't know why.

Basically click "not Started yet" on both, because if you haven't even bothered to start Yamamoto yet you are either a very new player or truly "don't care".

So OP, the "dont care" option?

You can do a task over and over again. As much as you want or need. Every time you gonna get the stars. The prize of course only the first time.

Nah, they're both stupidly grindy and with otherwise unreasonable tasks often locked by tier/type/nation. Besides, t8 is outside my comfort zone.

I am unlocking Yamamoto to put into my Yamato and Free XP him up to 19 points to replace Moeka China (my current 19 point Yamato Commander) who will then be retrained into the Shimakaze I am going to get using Free XP because grinding is for free-to-play players.

Got both and halsey was painfull tbh, way too many CL/CA missions. 

DM legendary upgrade 7/15 wins stage 4 while doing halsey only.

Guilty as charged for my yamamoto. Am 10k XP away from Halsey. But the last phase was a long grind. So much that I gave up on us ships quite a few times.
