Nine modified destroyers in a brand new four-team game mode, an array of post-apocalyptic camouflages, and enclosing Wall of Fire that forces close-quarters brawls.

Well kudos for actually stating how many tokens are available via ingame means (albeit I presume that is going to be one hell of a sick grind, hope you will be forthcoming in the future ones also)

 

Probably wouldn't hurt to explicitly state cost of the permanent cammo (i presume 7k)

Not overly happy with this, the USS Hill no problem done those type of missions before but the USS Benham either forces us to spend money or play the Savage Battles mode (need 800 for DD and total 850 of which 300 are from Savage Battles). Now I normally enjoy these modes for about 10-20 games and then get bored with them. I have no doubt those 300 fuel tokens are going to take a lot more than 10-20 Savage Battles) so if you can not stand Savage Battles then you need to buy 17 premium containers that should be the best part of £60.

 

I know these are being given for free but not a fan of forcing people to play a mode that will get boring quickly to get them at least cheaper (or free) in real cash.

Guys,

Lets try to stay on the topic at hand here.

I understand there are a lot of things you wanted to be adressed, but there are more than a few topics to talk about them.

Lets keep this event thread on topic.

Missions can be completed in Operations, Ranked and Co-op Battles, as well as in Ranked Sprint, Clan Brawl, and Savage Battles. Detailed data on missions can be found in the game client.

 

No Random???

So you make an event with the final reward being a T9 destroyer, and getting enough tokens will require you to be playing each an every day for quite a while... in full holiday season. Can't get enough tokens, you have to buy containers (if your country lets you), or else suck it up and have nothing.

 

Then the marathon for the Cossack was way better thought out: grind tokens, and if you can't get enough tokens because of whatever reason, you could buy tokens (and just that, not "packed" in a bloated box) to fill in the deficit. 

 

As the event currently stands: hard pass from me, eventhough I was willing to splurge some cash on getting the Benham, a ship I looked forward to; (grind some, buy the rest) but not with these abusive rules and mechanics. Helped by the rules of the government which prohibits the purchase of lootboxes to begin with, so not even tempted. 

 

Overall: not impressed at all.

The availability of the Benham is truly bizarre.

On one hand it is one very strong T9 premium ship (could easily be another T9 Steel DD if they so wished, aka quite possibly too strong, OP), so it being available for "merely" some missions and ingame grind is weirdly and extremely generous.

On the other hand though, precisely this availability can only mean the missions will be bloody tough and tedious. They probably expect only a very minuscule amount of players will be able to get it entirely free. I'm not thrilled about that, really.

 

I'd be happier if Benham was simply announced as a new FreeXP or coal ship (come on, we already had 2 steel DDs!). Kudos if that is a future plan as well, though would be great to announce it right away, like with the Kuznetsov captain (available for coal in the armory in a few months or so).

Neustrashimy or U.S.S. Benham - which is the better ship? 

 

Because one is locked behind a steel wall (reee) and the other can be bought by a kid with 150 games played who got hold of mommy’s credit card

Against BBs or non-radar cruisers, Benham's sheer torp power should be better than Neustra. Against DDs, Neustra's guns, speed and insane survivability make it by far the better choice. With radar ships, it really depends if a given person is a potato or not. radaring at the right time might wreck Benham before it can even launch torps. Radaring him after he launches all torps from both sides means the radar ship is probably dead, even if it has hydro. Nustra could get away wih just peppering radar cruisers from range with guns, I suppose (though doing not much unless they show broadside for its AP).

 

No idea how they manage against planes. I think both have (or can have) Def. Fire, not that it means much. Probably both fucked with Benham's advantage being smaller size and Neustra's advantage much larger HP.

 

Which one is better? Umm... Is Black better than Neustra or the other way? Not sure one can tell that simply either.

Don't you guys mean Random instead of Ranked?

 

Edit: I see the text on the news item is changed from Ranked to Random.

Random battles, not (standard) ranked.

I am not very good playing destroyers overall so i am completley pass this event as it have playable only destroyers. If it had playable battleships or cruisers with that kind of them i would play it 24/7 non-stop. Its great event/mod visually tho i am not excited playing it with only destroyers.

Wouldn't you please consider lowering the requirements for the mission rewarding 100 fuel tokens from 48/50 daily missions to something more reasonable (like 40/50)? 1 missed day in a month is simply nowhere near enough safe space, particularly considering the recent recurring server issues.

2 sunday evening outages and tadaa, chance to get Benham is gone even if you dedicated a whole month for it.

Wow, this is a big fail. Only ever one person survives the savage battle. Typically a superunicum. If you aren't one, tough luck.

 

Not only do merely 3 people out of 12 win, but being a regular guy, you already start with odds against you. Only two other spots on your team can harbor a player capable to survive and win. But there's 3 spots on every other team.

 

I don't see anybody but superunicums - and only those that are fine with grinding - to get the Benham*.

 

*Well, obviously aside from those outright bying Benham through containers. How much does that cost? Like 200 euros?

48 out of 50!!!??? how is that fair? i thought the grind for dreadnought was too much (40), but as stated previously by others, 48 is impossible for me. :-(

And thats from someone who is not working at the moment, so i have alot of free time!

i was looking forward to this event but not now.

 

next time WG could you please build in some realism for aquiring targets and goals. Example; daily shipments, collect 10 shipments in 14 days. Thats realistic.

good luck to those that attempt this.

So:

6 Per day, guide says 150 so 25 days presumably - since you really want to push people into playing savage - obvious from having to farm 17mil in there... those should count for this, not counting is BS.

48 missions is 100 - rly grindy but ok, same issue as above you are forced to do savage battle but it doesn't count

250 For directives - ok

150 for farming 4.8M in your new mode, grindy but ok

150 for farming 12M (really 16.8 since you need to finish the first one) in your new mode... wtf

75 ish coveniently available if you fork over money for hill in advance...

 

so someone is smoking crack at WG headquaters? Now that's some serious grind fest to get the Benham.

 

Small tip - if you want people to give you their money stop with BS like this and people might actually open their wallets, stuff like this usaually annoys people.

The 150 fuel for individual dailies is fine, you could in theory miss some days and be fine... but->

-> You actually need the 100 fuel for the 48/50 dailies mission. Meaning at that point you will have gotten 138 fuel from 48 individual dailies anyway...

250 fuel for directives is perfectly acceptable.

300 fuel for 16,8 million credits in Savage battles is a crazy grind but doable (you're somewhat pushed to play a crazy amount of savage battles by the directives anyway).

50 fuel for 10 daily logins is great (you'll have 12 or so days).

 

It's that second line that screws everything up, because it rewards the same thing as the first one. If you manage 48/50 dailies (and the other missions/grinds), you'll get 838+ fuel. If you do not manage 48/50 dailes, you're suddenly at 732 fuel at most (unless you somehow were progressing through the dailes but not through the latest stage, repeatedly - then technically, you could manage as high as 747 fuel in total).

The issue is the huge gap. You cannot only get just over 200 fuel from all that's linked to daily missions, you either get 238+ or 147-.
