There could be a T8 Prem ship in those rewards or more likely it'll be 20 camos however.

 

So I can understand the high requirements even if I think it's an utter waste of time.

Oh. My. God.

It is free stuff for playing, the more active players get more.

Would you be happier without this mission?

That is the stupidest argument ive ever heard.

 

This is about creating fun events and missions, rather than boring grindfests.

 

Its fully possible to make the mission fun, while still keeping it difficult.

 

"You dont have to do it" is a completely useless line of thought that wont lead anywhere

It's Do-Able but question is it is worth the potential reward?

 

I'd personally rather just pay a few pounds and open a container which I've already done and I'm not grinding for hours a day for an unknown reward. 

 

If someone is a kid with no job or just someone who is going to grind anyway then there's nothing really wrong with this mission set no...

Missing the point. 

It's time gating, again. Otherwise known as 'mudflation' go look it up. 

If being 'active' means spending 4 hours a day playing one game, then the game can frankly *edit off, it's a game, not a job. There is a fine line between offering free stuff and making that free stuff a chore to get. The last year has shown Wargaming making it a chore, over and over. 

Agreed.

 

But tbh, things are not gonna change. Long are gone the days where you bought the game, full price (or not) and then you enjoyed playing it at your convenience.

 

Now every game tries to milk you via microtransactions... and if not for money, then for your time spent in the game.

 

I just started playing Destiny 2... tho it looks and feels good, its infested with same crap.

 

As for WoWS... I gave up. Not keeping on track with everything, no more time limited grinding (the stupidest thing). I just play casual now. Got more ships in port than I will ever need.

i think its a bit too much and out of reach for  the average player

i dont like this because its probably just there to increase the "viability" of the shop price for those containers.

 

if the container you can get is

that expensive time wise

buying it for ~4€ looks cheaper

So we have to do 50k commander xp, then 50k normal xp, then 50k free xp (which will take at least a few days) which leaves us with only 7-9 days left to do 50k BASE xp. Even for a unicum that's a solid 3 hours a day for a week. 

This is exactly the kind of time gating bs we've been TRYING to warn you about Wargaming. 

Also the rewards of only two containers for 50k base xp? Yeah not worth it, I'm not even going to bother with such retarded requirements, thanks for managing to turn me off the game even more after what was the RN mission time gate fiasco...

 

If you want free stuff, you will have to do something for it. t2009.gif

Considering it's possible to get tier VIII premium ships out of those crates and the individual mission stages aren't timegated, I find the 50k to be a bit steep personally if I were to look at it from the average joe perspective, but for once not completely out of proportion like the otherwise infamous EU mission requirements of old. At least here you aren't jumping through those hoops for 5 Equal Speed Charlie Londons (though obviously getting a premium ship still requires a lot of luck).

 

Two weeks time seems about an appropriate timeframe aswell considering the first three stages can be done in a jiffy if you stack enough camouflages/signal flags. Plus clan battles actually count aswell, that's a yay.

The other thing though Ao, is you get three of the containers just for logging in for ten out of the fourteen days the mission is active (daily login stuff just like Halloween) the mission chain is five total containers. For significantly more effort, it just doesn't stack up. The first three stages are fine, but then having an equal amount of base xp (the one that is hardest to get as it relies on winning and doing well a lot and can't be modified) is just too much compared to how little effort the rest of the chain is as well.

Just see them as heavy grinds for small batches of camos.

 

Please don't grind all that for black ships you likely won't get...

The drop rate appears to be about ⅓ for a ship...

Could be worse... could be a cosmetic flag of the "Free French" which you'd get a week later for playing 1 battle. 

 

(yes, that actually happened)

Actually I checked and if the news article pictures are following the same logic as with previous containers, then they aren't the same, i.e.: lowered ship drop chances for non-premium shop containers.

No. Containers are not the same and chance to get those ships from standard black containers are slim.

Every complaint I have ever made is only ever because I want the game to be better. I would still love to care, I'm just burnt out on every piece of feedback being ignored by Wargaming. Always.

Just play the game when you want to and have a surprise waiting for you in the port, every now and then, over the next weeks? I mean, the mission last till Dec 07 so...no need to do it in one weekend
