That seems a rather hefty mission to complete (especially comparison to 0.8.9s one (for reference it was )

  • Earn 12,000 base XP.
  • Ensure that 120,000 damage is dealt due to your spotting of enemy ships.
  • Cause 500,000 damage.

    0.8.10
  • Play 20 battles.
  • Earn 30,000 base XP.
  • Cause 1,500,000 damage with main battery guns.
  • Cause 750,000 damage with rockets, bombs, or torpedoes.


    So, that's 3x as much damage (With main battery ONLY)
     around 1.5x as much damage (Using Torpedos/Rockets and Bombs ONLY)
    over twice as much base xp

    over the space of (in total an 8 day period)

How about fixing the frankly , bloody awful Italian cruisers so far available , before introducing any more broken stuff into the game ?

 

Just how did these ships get released in this state ? , they are poor , I have Montecuccoli , it is utter rubbish compared to Aosta , and these ships were near sisters in real life ?

Well...i guess it could as well have been "cause 1 mio. damage by fire in italian or british cruisers"...

This is not cool. What is going to happen when the last PT of the autumn season hits? Is it going to have 6 times the requirements of the 0.8.9 mission?

 

Raising the requirements once the players have already committed their time and the stakes are higher is manipulative and straight up scummy.

 

Moreover, its not like there is a lot of stuff coming with 8.10: whats is there for us to test? The 9v9 mm coop mode change? The mission doesnt include that gamemode.

 

To me these requirements are excessively large and no thought was put into them to lead the player to test the actual content of the upcoming patch.

Queuing times will be the main issue here. During the 0.8.9 PTS, it often took about 5 minutes to get into a random match...and that's on sunday evening. When you got there, you ended up in a match just half the team sizes of a normal round, thus reducing the amount of kills and hitpoints available.

 

In 0.8.10, we will have to take CVs out for a spin...for about 15 or more to be exact, because fires and floodings won't count for the 750k mission. At a maximum number of 2 CVs per match, we better prepare for quite some idling in the queue...

Definately a slog of a mission on the test server.
20 games, not bad, bit of a wait but not too bad to deal with
1,500,000 main battery damage is a slog
750,000 , Bomb, Rocket or Torpedo (Aerial or Ship mounted) damage is another slog
30k exp is simple really.

That said virtually every match is double carrier on both sides

I did the 8.9.0 test completely, but this, the rewards ins`t worth the time needed to finish it.

Is it possible to register for PT after it started? Since the website is under maintenance and I only saw the news today.

Hello will there be more ship rewords in Reserch Bureau ? , like lower tier T7,T8,T9 for less reserch point ? that Ohio and Colbert? , that would be great , because some players could be scared with perspective of grinding 3/6(with or without bonus)  times line , and perspective grind let say 20k RP for T7 ,  30k RP T8, 40k RP T9 may be what can make RB more popular for casual players .

 

I post this here because PT players may have some more information about that .

 

(BTW bonus point x2 in RB , how often reset ?)

So don't see that topic name is "round 2"?

If this is round 2 than before it was round 1.

I mean the carriers are one thing, everyone seems to be playing cruisers, so you can't do much...

 

Also, fire and flooding don't count towards any damage done, so RN CVs cannot be played.

I use PTS to test some ships and if convenient, get some rewards on the main server.

 

I find grinding on the PTS (like WG is asking at the moment) insane and I'm definitely not wasting my time on that.

 

Seems like they are testing how far they can push the grind and the PTS is a good place to do that.
