Who's idea was this task?

 

Receive 250,000 potential damage in a tier 5-10 cruiser in a single game, survive and win? And this awards 1 star?

 

Am I overlooking something or is this task completely absurd? I could see a tier 10 cruiser survive maybe 2-3 times its max hp in a game but 5 times? AND you still have to win?

 

This task seems utterly unreasonable to me.

So you just need to bounce 17 Yamato AP shells? It is still an absurd amount to have to survive.

@Benser Potential Damage is all shots fired at you when targeted... so Hits/Ricochets and misses. 

In a tier 8+ Cruiser over 1,000,ü00 is not rare. To be honest this mission should almost read be shot at and Survive

Not bounce them dude, he can shoot at you, you hit the breaks/turn and he misses.

French cruisers are pretty nasty for that mission.

Ah, if misses count then yes, that makes things substantially easier...

 

Thank you for clarifying that.

You can even farm potential damage by dodging torpedo spreads, in high tiers every shima torpedo spread does massive damage, about 110K

if anything, it's really hard not to complete that on a survived win... 250k is pretty much just two NewMex/Fuso broadsides...

Torpedoes which when fired were locked onto you, or just any torpedo that comes near?

I think the torps need to be in a certain distance to u in order to count as potential damage. Had a Hindenburg game lately, where a Shima targeted my BB behind me (he didnt know i was there before he launched the torps) I had to take one on the nose tho, i exploded (ofc lol), and havent had so much potential damage (got only shot 2 or 3 times by enemy hindenburg before my match ended ~~)

Or u play RN Cruiser, win, survive, get 3 kills but noone really shoots u, even outside of smoke :Smile_sad: Otherwise would have worked tho...

I worried about this one, but did it first try in Minotaur.... (potential damage is not a one of the post game stats that I tend to look at, so had no idea what would be a 'normal' value, learning all the time :) )

If I remember the patch notes correctly: Any shell that lands in a circle with 500m around your ship will be counted towards potential damage.

 

Otherwise the 2 million I once had in my donskoi (iirc) wouldn't be possible.

I was actually worried, was hugging islands to much that nobody was shooting me. Thank god for the Montana that insisted on trying to kill me ( and ignoring the broadside Yamato at 4km from him ).

In stronger T10 cruisers and BB played right its not un common to survive with 2.5 to 3 million potential damage. Khaba is a great ship to do missions like these in. Everybody likes to shoot at a Khaba but few manage to hit it.

You can check under your profile. It shows how mutch average potential damage you recive per battle. 

 

Checked mine, should be rather easy mission. Averaging about 400k in tier.3-5, about 600k in tier.6-8 and about 900k- 1.5m in tier.9-10 per battle.

you have to be targeted and locked, for any potential damage to be counted, if it was just a random torpedo spread, then its not potential damage

Does anyone knows until when I have the time to finish this campaign? I can't see an end date, and I am rather occupied with other things coming weeks.
