Hi, Presently working my way through the above directive. Struggling with the 1,600 Ribbons in a Battleship. You obviously require mega secondary hits. Have US and French BB's in port. Is it just a case of almost "suiciding" to get in close and obtain secondaries. Any hints appreciated.

 

Cheers.

A laugh but not overly helpful I am afraid - unless of course you want to arrange for an AFK BB in front of me next game LOL.

Coop + Massa, Georgia or Ohio and it was a cakewalk for me. 

Co-op can be a double-edged sword, on the one hand the bots will be obliging enough to charge straight for you but on the other, the games are (still) over very quickly and it's usually settled by a couple of waves of torps from the destroyers and brief mopping up from whoever managed to get into range/line of sight.

 

Generally though, I'd look at German battleships for the secondaries; I can usually get 120+ hits with them in Bayern for a reasonably decent game (then add in maybe 50-60 other misc. ribbons). Include more-fire and secondaries flags for best effect, don't forget AA flag for a little extra edge in picking up aircraft kills. Every little helps!

Co-op and Jean Bart, usually. On a good game I can normally get about 250-300 ribbons. But you can do the same with Normandie if you don't have a JB - she has good speed so the reds aren't all dead by the time you get there and she has lots of secondaries (including front-facing ones).

Co op with Bismarck for me. Openly said I wanted to get secondaries hits at the start of the battle, turns out most other BBs were doing the same so we usually agreed not to use our main guns except on DDs (due to torps) farmed a good few hundred hits ever battle.

Any hints appreciated.

I just cycled through my various manly BBs in Coop (so, T8+ KM, a couple of the French, plus MAs and GA); the most effective were those with engine boost, as that helps get you close enough for secondaries before allied DDs have torped everything - JB and GA for example.

 

(I would have stuck to just the optimal one or two, but thought I might as well knock off a few first win bonuses and contribute a bit to the Bismarck Cathedral mission at the same time.)

If you dont have any actual Secondary Spec BBs which have useful fast Firing Secondaries.

You can use any other BB too.

Most BBs have Secondaries even if they dont do any Real Damage.

 

Just go into Coop. Load HE. And Push toward NPC BBs while Shelling them with HE and driving Circles in 4km Distance to them.

 

 

Of course if you do have any Actual Secondary Specced BBs with useful Secondaries. Use these. As its the easiest way for a Battleship to get 300+ Ribbons per Battle.

Coop is Generally easier for this by the way cause the Enemy willingly comes Forward to you and wont Focus you down if you do the same.

Co-op Bismarck, around 200 secondary hits per game guaranteed. Just pray that human DDs are not numerous and proficient. Probably doing it at low population times may help.

Just wondering if anyone else is having problems with it not registering ribbons? Are some of what they list, not actually counted for this? I did over 300 yesterday and added another 300+ today (not trying just playing normal but I note this crap down :) ) and it says the total is 426 ???? My internet has been having problems so I wonder if it did not register? Just checking if anyone else has encountered this?

 

Update :  My ISP sorted out my internet and it seems to be going fine now fingers crossed :)

"1,600 Ribbons in a Battleship"

 I think it has to be any tier V-X BB, but must be in a BB, not other class.
