Is it just me or is part 2 & 3 of this mission not a lot of work for a very small reward?

3 days of premium for just 15 000 base xp accumulated? Sounds great. The other missions are just a bonus for consistency. Thanks

Ship restrictions: Tier I-X ships.

Man, that's harsh.

I wish they would loosen the restrictions and allow us to complete the mission through our Apex Legends account ;)

It is a mission for our CoOp fans.

 

Except it is probably required to unlock part 3.. Still minimum 40 matches

A bit underwhelming to put it nicely. They could add some chance of free xp coal or steel in the boxes.

You get 3 days premium and some signals just for playing a bit (15k base XP is nothing with that time frame). Play a bit more (and maybe a bit better) and get an extra daily container + another day premium. And if you are insane, you might be up for a year of premium - not something I could hope for but it's a rare grind-fest that actually gives a very generous reward AND doesn't guarantee the best bot to be the ultimate winner :Smile-_tongue: Doesn't make it any less insane but has some oomph.

Add an improved first win bonus for the entire week - and it actually seems like a profitable little event to get you to keep grinding in wait for 8.1 :Smile_trollface:

First 2 tasks seems reasonable enough effort compared to the rewards.  But minimum 40 x 7,5-10 minute co-op battles in mission part 2, that's between 5-7 hours of continuous playing, providing you're skilled enough to to be in top 2 in every match, for 1 day of premium and some flags. Don't add up at all. Not in my book at least.

It's something for dedicated coop players that play a lot. Most of the possible rewards (3 WG containers) are hidden behind much smaller grind, so you're not short-changed for not changing your gaming habits. Seems like a reasonable approach, in my book at least.

Personally I'll only go for the first two.. To be honest don't think the last two is particular realistic effort compared to reward. But each to his own after all its free stuff.

Doesn't seem at all relevant to the GWF.

Someday I hope for something like a GWF skin for St. Louis and Charleston, or a US pre-dreadnought capital ship, or a collection with some kind of relevant commemorative flag.

@MrConway, there's actually an interesting question that's not addressed anywhere. Or two, but related:

1. Is there a way to track your progress (how many "top twos" you managed to score")?

2. What are the requirements for the counted "top twos"? Most missions have a t5 requirement - but one is different... what about the "contest counter"? Is it t5+ or have you made the mistake of allowing lower tiers as well? :Smile-_tongue: Because by not stating it clearly (even if the requirement is the somewhat reasonable t5) you just invited some people to try and farm it around t1... and there doesn't seem to be any counter allowing them to realize the mistake.
