The rewards seem pretty decent, I have had 2-3 games on there so far.

 

20,000 coal for 9 million credits and 90,000 FXP is a bargain even if you do not wish to play the mode.  Personally I think I will use it as an oppourtunity to stock up on signals as there are a lot on offer.

Yes, but because it's much easiey to do the italian directives that way; plus it's enjoyable because "loosing"/getting killed doesn't really matter; it's like:"whatever, next battle"

I lucked out and got the corporation tokens from the first (15.000) and third (2000) random bundles for battle points.
After that I just spammed 5-6 games, bought the remaining 3 tokens for silver and FXP, and got the Akizuki camo I planned on getting.
Was overall quite fun, but I think the balance is kind of out the window for this mode and the rewards (if unlucky on bundles) rather lackluster so I probably won't play it anymore as getting a second camo will take forever after my initial luck.

My main gripes with the balance is how the BBs just seem to be near impossible to take down in a 1v1 pvp fight if they run the right setup, and how DDs are often quite bad at pvp, excellent at pve dpm, but very vulnerable to the Aurora and her minions where you would want to utilize that pve dpm.
The single t9 cruiser is similarly bad at pve, but great at pvp if it runs the mortars and otherwise just designed as a griefing ship against players, while no t10 cruiser exists for some reason.
The Aurora is also kinda pointless to take out, as even if you do kill it (very hard in a random div), you get 15000 battle points which is way overkill compared to the effort it takes to take her down (15k split on 3 ships in a div is 5k each which is also the cap, and you can reach that cap from other monsters and killing players a lot easier).

I gave it a few spins, to check out the new ships. 

Praise is due here: speeding around with Akizuki at 140kts  is quite fun. I also had a good laugh when Öland started diving.

I won’t bother I tried it on the PTS and really don’t enjoy it, much happier playing random battles. 
 

Still for those that enjoy it I hope they have fun

Playing with mates, no potatoes on my team. 100% less stress and frustration. I recommend this game mode, havent played Random in 2 weeks and havent played much wows during this week but Big Hunt is fun with div.mates.

I don't like the optics or the selfishness of the mode.

 

But it's growing on me.

127% not interested, like pretty much every event of this kind. It's just not my cup of tea.

What Wargaming has done right this time is that you can partially or fully complete your normal missions while playing a "fun" mode. So regarding missions you are more or less free to chose if you want to go for a regular battle or big hunt.

 

What is not equal however is the "loss" of other income, most prominently XP. As such I will not and never have seriously invested time into these modes as I need every single XP on my captains, not on the Orlan.

 

I do understand that you "trade" those XP for other stuff (available via the battle point lottery), however I am not as much interested in those as I am in XP.

You can play like 10-15 games and collect a couple of tokens and you can even get that credit back.
