Hi everyone, 

 

Theres a little storm going on about the whole Puerto Rico directives grind (and, as a matter of fact, the Gorizia and all other related rewards, which are stuck behind the same wall). 

Now, I'd like to bring my feedback a tad more positive. 
I think WG has set up an amazing event, the whole shipbuilding thing looks pretty awesome, the event and reward look awesome- there is only 1 but. And this but is currently causing a tremendous amount of negativity. 
The but is obviously that the directives grind is pretty insane. 

Now, I really, really, think the event, the snowflakes, free gift containers, possibility of unlocking PR and Gorizia and all are freaking amazing. 

Just fix the directives and this event is 10/10 for me.

I tend to agree with you - if WG hadn't spectacularly mishandled the whole 'grind'/PR aspect of the Xmas event, this probably would have been a highlight of the year (if not *the* highlight)...

There is a lot of good work that went into this event - the whole shipyard building is excellent. But all that work got devalued by their marketing, their mission designers and their monetization. Way to shoot yourself in the foot.

I think the marketing and monetization aspects are in fact not even that bad, i'd most likely have gotten my wallet out and bought the Gorizia if i was sure i could re-earn the doubloons. I tend to do that if it makes the missions really easy, but in this case it makes them easier on a titan scale. 

So still not exactly easy. 

Fixing only the directives would make this a beatiful event, and i can imagine that over in Paris/ Prague (did they move yet) they're having an emergency meeting right now. And if they do fix the directives, i'll applaud them for that too.

Well they can't go back on the monetization anymore, since people already forked over the 59k doubloons :cap_fainting: to get out Puerto Rico. And they'd have to scale down the directives a lot to make this show bearable in any way.

It's rather 1/10, I mean divide by ten all the requirements, and the cash will start to flow in. WG, use that famous russian damage control, you have.

Thats why i call it 10/10. If they fix the directives. 

Right now it kinda sucks, but i'm using the conditional IF to indicate that IMO it could be a bloody amazing event. 
I trust things will change, i'm just saying i think it has a 10/10 potential. 
Situation isnt exactly 10/10

They don't necessarilly have to do that. Or well ... depending on how you look at it. Just keep the directives active for half a year or so ... boom problem solved.

I agree that at its core, the entire dockyard + "play to get pieces" of the ship (on top of the visual aspect) has been nicely thought out and is a nice addition to the game (and I hope it becomes a permanent feature for long-term goals to work towards). 

 

It's just that the numbers don't add up, and the whole public-relations bonfire/fiasco.
