Hi all

 

The imperial treasury missions read that you need to do 6 (that is 24 million credits in 2 weeks). OK, but my problem is I never played all nations. I only played USSR and a bit of USA  BBs.

Am I supposed to grind 4 other nations to tier 5 to even try this? Is this even possible for a non premium account?

Basically no. I will probably complete 3 of them in 2 weeks, but enough to achieve the goal is far beyond my interest.

Possible? Yes.

Realistic? No.

 

On the other hand the missions are known for three weeks.

Apparently yes, but I never bothered looking ahead, I thought all would be fairly similar and hence ... here I am.

That some good scamming from WG. If you get the PeF, you do 5 of these missions just with it (including Germany). I don't regret buying it at the start but I think WG pushed it too far especially that's a very frustrating ship. I will never play it again after those missions are done except for snowflaking next year if it happens again.

In 2 weeks I can do all others missions since I get premium high tiers with most nations. More tricky with Royal navy ships (I "only" get Nelson / Duke of York and no T10 premium camo). I might buy the Daring premium camo. But the worse is pan-Asian. Since I'm definitively not going to buy the premium camo of the Yu Yang, I guess I will use my special camos that brings lot of money on either her or Chung Mu.

Overall a very difficult directive if you don't have PeF or all the main branches.

I am not commiting to this then.  I understand it is an insignificant statement, but I need to say it. These things in an ideal world would be reachable by anyone who plays the game. If you must have grinded all nation tech trees to tier V at least, you are not just everyone. You are a selected few.

 

I am sorry WG, I am out of this challenge. 

 

Thanks for the comments guys.

I agree I am not going to grind 3 tec trees from t2 to do this, what a waste of playing time

I've been playing for a year now and completing the Directives is only just possible for me. I was even more focused on tech-tree grinding only USA and UK, but some time ago bought the Graf Spee for the Gamescon 2018 missions, and bought a lot of port slots to enable me to start grinding up all of the other tech-tree lines. Even then they're only at T5 now!

 

It's a very new player (f2p) hostile directive, with the only option (p2w) of buying a bunch of various Premium ships. They may as well buy the PEF out-right.

That's not the hard part.

 

It will be more difficult to then grind the four million.

 

Harder still to then do the Nerves of Steel mission in time before it's over, which I'm assuming is the whole point of the exercise because the ship itself is definitely not worth it.

.

If I were to try this from an F2P account... hmm.

 

Japan - grind out Minekaze and torp my way to the cash. At that level, there are still many BBabies sailing in straight lines waiting to be farmed, and only three radar ships in the whole matchmaking spread. Also best concealment on the tier which is always good. To gain a 10-pt Japanese commander - get some good players into a division and do Operation Defense of Naval Station Newport with at least four stars . (Better yet, five-star it to gain a day of Premium time.) Not easy but should be quicker than grinding out the commander XP the hard way.

 

Germany - König the battleship, imho the best silver BB on that Tier. Königsberg the cruiser is also good but struggles harder when uptiered. T-22 would only be good for DD specialists. The main benefit would be that you have to swing by the low tier German DDs which are hilarious. Four-star Operation Killer Whale for a German 10-pt Commander, or better yet, buy one of the Jütland brothers straight out of the Arsenal (coal or doubloons).

 

UK - Probably best to go for the BB as well, which is really not bad. Lots better than New York. Get one of the Dunkirk Brothers from the Arsenal. I would probably try to get Jack Dunkirk, from completing the Dunkirk collection, for which you have to buy maybe 15 to 20 Dunkirk containers. Even if it should cost you more coal than buying Bert Dunkirk outright, it will be worth it because the containers also give special signals.

 

France - I don't suppose you have sufficient coal to buy the Jean Bart from the Arsenal, which would definitely be by far the best way to go here. Barring that, I'd go with the cruisers, Émile Bertin is still a bit OP even after the nerf. You can get one of the Honoré brothers as commander, either for 1,500 doubloons straight from the Arsenal if you have them, or buying Vive-la-France containers to complete that collection, giving power camos and signals. The bad news is you will probably need to buy even more containers than for the Dunkirk collection because you need to collect more items while the containers only contain one collectible item each. The good news is you get Revolutionary, gamescom and Ocean Soul camos, all of which give extra credits. Also these crates only contain the extra credit, reduced service cost or extra Commander XP signals, all of which will help with this economy grind.

 

(Reduced service costs do nothing for the Treasury directive as such but they give you more credits to buy ships etc with.)

 

If you can spare any actual real money to facilitate this grind, first on the list is obviously a bit of premium time, even though the Holiday discounts are over.

 

Rather than buying the Prinz outright, or buying any one premium ship - based on my personal experience, I'd actually suggest going for the luck of the draw and getting a 20 batch of mega Santa loot boxes. On average, I got three to four premium ships out of any batch of 20s. Granted, some of them weren't very good ones, and if you don't already have a fairly substantial collection, chances are higher for you to get those slightly rubbish ones. BUT, if you should get one, you could start the credit grind mission right away. Also it will give you such a crap ton of special signals, New Year Streamer and other power camos that it might possibly last you some time beyond this grind.
