    Pretty much given up on the French DD event.

    I've earned the same amount of crates, plus 1 or 2 more from twitch missions. I've also done the easy, medium and working on the hard. Here is the problem, this stage of the event ends in 5 days, in that time you must get lucky and find a crate with one of the tier 7,8,9 destroyer missions, then earn 3 million credits each for 4 different countries. You will not be able to complete the hard stage for at least 3 more days. That means you will have to find a crate, then get lucky and get one of the destroyer missions, then earn three million credits for each country and you don't even have a chance to do this for three more days. Odds are, the crate won't even have a destroyer mission. Like you, I've gotten 2 destroyer mission out of roughly the same number of French crates. Many other people, have only got 1 or even 0. So the chances of you getting a French DD mission, then doing all the remaining missions is not good at all and will take a huge amount of work if you don't have tons of camo's and flags.

    I have been doing them every day. Not a single DD mission drop. Are you getting DD mission drops from the daily mission crates?

    So I just finished the British line. Expected to see a nice French crate drop, but no, just a $300,000 credits. I thought, "what the hell" and took another look at the event. It appears the most I can hope for at this point is one French container from the French line. I wasn't lucky enough to get any of the tier 7,8,9 French DD's so I can't do any of the others unless I buy a bunch of premium ships. All the other crate drops require one of the higher end French DD's or premium ships (like the Acosta) from those lines, which I don't have. I cannot believe I wasted all this time on this. All this time to have no chance at all at getting the premium items unless I want to spend $100.00 on ships I might not even like. Are you kidding me? This is Wargaming's idea of a well designed event? What a pile of crap. I'm am sure this event will cause a lot of new players to just drop the game. I'm seriously considering uninstalling.

    Yep. But it would have been fun. Which is the point of the game.

    I am curious, since I'm pretty new, which one's are geared toward new players, that also don't benefit older players? I would assume older players have a much easier time with them anyway. They have the flags, prem camo' and can afford premium consumables, and they also have premium ships. It seems to me, all the events are already a lot easier for them to begin with.

    I did the last event as well. It was my first real even since I started playing. I also got the Benham and thought the effort to get the ship was certainly worth it. It's one of the only 3 premium ships I have.

    Just disappointed. I really wanted the Mogo with Perma camo and the tier 5 premium would have been a nice bonus. I could also really the doubloons and coal (want the Salem or Georgia) would really save me some time. Oh, well.

    That's kind of my point. I don't have the economic flags and premium ships from other lines to do this in a reasonable amount of time. I have to start at the bottom and work up the tiers. I do appreciate the tip on operations, after I level ships up to level 6, it might be viable, but as of now, I can only do operations on three lines- all non-premium ships with no economic flags.

    I should add, I also don't have the flags that older players have, that would really help. Flags, plus premium ship lines, plus premium account, makes it a lot easier. For the rest of us, it's just not worth it.

    I got 75% of the British done and roughly 40 % of the American. I haven't even started on the French, hoping for another destroy mission to help, and I would still have to pull up three more lines, which I have no ships at all for. That could be like 30+ hours of gaming in the next 5 days. Who has that kind of time? I have to work.

    The Mogodor with the perm camo would be a great ship to own, but looks like I will have to earn it then, buy the perm camo. So ten times the work for the same reward.

    I agree. I have been pretty lucky with the crates and still have little chance of getting all 4 bundles, that should tell the people at Wargaming something, but I doubt they care. One of the reasons I won't pay for 3 month premium. The designers don't seem care much about new players enough to give them the ability to finish the event, even if they really work for it.

    This is so true. I could complete this stage if I spent my coal on the Russian CA, then bought another premium for cash, and moved to a premium account, but that seems like a lot of expense for a tier 5 premium ship and "a chance" to unlock all the bundle's and get the Mogador and the perm camos. Worst part, even if I spent a lot of money, there is a good chance I still wouldn't complete everything.
  14. I was really interested in doing this event, but realized this weekend there is no point in continuing. The amount of hours to complete the next stage for the tier 5 premium is just not worth it. As a new player the number and lines of ships I have is limited. I only have three lines of ships capable of doing the stages. I only had two, so this weekend I level up British DD's and was planning to do thee more lines (German, Japanese and Russian), but the work to get ships up to a tier where they can earn the credits in a timely manner, is just not worth the effort. This is not much of an issue for older players who have a number of high tier premium ships to use, but for me it is a huge amount of work. I don't run premium, except sometimes on the weekends, so the amount of work required to get this done is twice what a premium account requires and I don't have premium ships of other nationalities to complete all 6 directives. I seriously considered going premium and even had my finger on the button to do three months, but after this event I realized this game is turning into a grind fest, so I doubt I will ever move to a premium account. I've managed to open two of the bundle containers only because I got lucky and found two French destroyer missions, but I know that the odds of getting to the bundle containers, no matter how hard I work, are very poor. I could put in 30 hours in the next week and most likely never get to the 4th bundle. As a new player, I don't have near enough ships to get them with snowflakes, so I have to rely on lucky drops, which from what I have seen don't seem to be going in my favor, though I have been significantly luckier then a lot of people. I tried to complete the 2nd Twitch mission (hurt me) for a couple more crates, but it requires me to get 2750 base exp, which at least for me, is incredibly difficult. I have had 3-4 games, where I had enough kills and other flags to reach that amount, but my team lost and only ended up with half base exp I've needed. I stopped even trying yesterday. For new players, this event is a huge grind for little chance of getting the rewards. It seems extremely poorly designed, with no thought at all given to new players, or even older players that don't have a bunch of ships. If this is a sign of what's to come, why bother spending money, so I can grind. Lastly. Working so hard and getting so little in return is just not fun. I play to have fun and trying to complete the event has removed a lot of the fun from the equation. I feel completely defeated and just going to work on the normal mission crates and if I get the other rewards, so be it. Does anyone at Wargaming even understand how difficult they are making these events for new players? So I just finished the British line. Expected to see a nice French crate drop, but no, just a $300,000 credits. I thought, "what the hell" and took another look at the event. It appears the most I can hope for at this point is one French container from the French line.

    Repuplic Token Event Terrible for New Players

    Yep. I completely agree with you.
