"You can complete the chain of combat missions playing Tier V–X ships in Random, Ranked, and Co-op Battles, as well as Operations."

 

So tell me... how do I get 12 achievements in coop? :Smile_facepalm:

Since you have the other battle modes, the directive is not impossible.

Well, so I can get 6 tokens at the most, which yield me a single gift container (=some signals) and a single expendable camo. 

 

I would consider buying one of the Halloween permacamos, but containers all over again? No, thanks. It's like going to the supermarket to buy milk, and they tell you "Gimme 5 bucks, and you get a paperbag that contains a random item from our entire store."

You might look up the the difference between "and" and "or".

 

"You can complete the chain of combat missions playing Tier V–X ships in Random, Ranked, and Co-op Battles, as well as Operations."

 

So, is it impossible to do a directive for achievements in coop or not?

Are you sure it's not a bad translation from russian? =Over any number of battles , earn 12 achievements?

 

I'm sure that's that, but I can also understand OP's point: There are no achievemants earnable in CoOp, so why is it included in this list?

 

I assume a minor oversight on WG's part when copy pasting mission requirements from a sheet into the Warships UI. 

 

 

Either way OP, if you're a CoOp only player, I fear you're outta luck here.

Well I don’t think wows requires you to get those 12 missions in one game, although after PR dockyard event:Smile_trollface:... 

 

But achievements cannot be done in coop. Scenarios maybe ( also pve) but not efficient. 
 

But 12 achievements is a steep requirement for a mission that gives in total 15 :etc_swear:tokens when the advertised main prize like the Atlanta camo is 65 and König A or vampire is 75...

 

Easy mission WG said...Get your Vampire or K Albert WG said....well FU WG...

12 achievements can be done in random yes.  Not the most easy type off farmable mission goal but stil ( think requirement effort vs reward is out of proportion) but emphasizing by wg that this can be also done exclusively in coop and then putting achievements in the mix is not ok.

Agreed. It’s not ok to have a directive that can’t be completed in co-op and still say it can be. That’s really low.

 

A case of you can complete it any way you want, but not really. :fish_palm:

Well its in the line of "get 6 achievments in one battle" and for that we give you - 2 flags...

 

Now IDK who in WG is coming up with this BS but I would like him to show me how he is farming that particular task as i didnt see blokes like flamu do that all that often so would really like to see a master at work...

I know, but I'll also age faster and my doctor has told me not to do things which raise my blood pressure. So Ops it is.

DIdnt know you could earn a tier III ship or whatever other things tokens can buy. Isn't non-useless tokens quite generous by current WG standards, even if you have to donate your left kidney for them? :Smile_trollface:

 

I stopped paying attention to WG token missions since spring after they literally did 1 detonation flag as mission rewards and there were no intermediate rewards.

 

Since then tokens only seems useful if you spend 100.000 doubloons or €€€ to boost the amount you got.

 

Also getting achievements in Randoms isnt particularly hard. First Blood, Dev strike and Dreadnought in particular are fairly easy to obtain.

Yes.

https://wiki.wargaming.net/en/Ship:Achievements

 

Sea Star is doable, Natural Selection is trickier since 4 same/8 kills is going to depend on factors, Torpedoman is harsher simply because DDs are trickier to play in operations, Tactical Expertise can happen but depends on others as much on you with Assistant and Major Contribution being the same but the opposite, they have to play poorly or you very well.

It's really hard though to get 12 achievements. I've managed to get 7 so far, but was lucky getting 3 of them. Killed a ship after they killed me (just a flesh wound) three times in a DD. Been playing both Random and OPS trying to get them and been at it all day long as well.

 

It might not be impossible, but it's hard to do. The other 3 directives are not that bad. But this one is a real pain. Spent all day trying to get 12 and didn't manage it.

Pommeren's 12 citadels are listed as achievable in Operations too......since there are no T9 operations ""minor oversights" are quite common.

Then they should NOT have listed co-op.

This is atypical of WG, who constantly push people to play PvP Randoms.  Please note PvP not Teams V Teams.   If you care to play Randoms as an individual player, prepare to receive abuse 100 fold when you cannot or will not do as asked or if they simply look at your stats and perceive you as a potato or god forbid you are seen as a Whale.

 

Some people simply cannot compete in this toxic type of environment, so stay in Co-op.

 

WG should not have listed Co-op as a way to play this particular Leg of the mission.
