Finished the first three staged of the Santa Convoy Campaign; the first at the end of the previous night's completion of the Hunt for the Graff Spee campaign, the second and third the next day using a combination of Atago and Akizuki.

 

Following advice I've read here in the forum I demounted Atago's normal camo and equiped GamesCon 2016 for the 50% credits bonus, Zulu for the 20% bonus, and then my Premium account for another 50% bonus.

 

In addition to the credits mission, which I used twice in stage two, and once in stage three; I also use the earn 30xp mission in both stages, and the 400 hits mission in stage three to get the sixth pin there. Easy enough, after I completed the 500k credits mission in Atago, I switched to Akizuki and just spammed hits.

 

Don't remember exactly how many games it took, I think about ten, due to losses, and several times winding up with 475k-ish credits, despite the bonuses.

 

Stage two of the campain is 350k credits instead of 500k, and was easy enough to do in my Atago, with all the bonuses. (Strangely; what used to be one of my mosted hated premium ships is now one of my most inportant for the Santa Convoy Campaign, as well as for the Honorable Service Campaign.)

 

Stage three's 500k credits mission wound up being a bit harder. I was close several times, being 25k-ish short despite heavy damage games; then wound up getting a pile of ribbons and only about 35k damage in a loss; but secured 600k credits; I guess from all the ribbons.

 

Completing the 400 hits mission also had its own wierdness; but wound up being completed in a way that seems typical for me. Rapid accumulation of the mission objective goal; then several games where I can't seem to play right for anything, then a big finish.

 

I was down to the last fifty hits I needed to complete the 400 hits mission, but couldn't seem to get in position, or to avoid getting killed fast for several games. When I was down to the last 24 hits...

 

...I had a game where I scored over 150 hits...

 

...go figure.

 

In the end? I wound up with two new captains and a ship that I knew passingly was a reward for one of the campaign stages, but hadn't really expected.

 

I suppose now I have a Leander.

 

Certainly I don't object to a free ship, but with the recent focus necessitating the use of higher-tiered ships; my working through Emerald (a ship I actually enjoy; despite what many say about it;) was on the back burner, to be continued 'some time in the future.'

 

Thing is; due to having a Perth for a Tier 6 RN-type ship, a general lack of interest, and still needing to play high-tier ships; I have no idea when I'll actually take the Leander out and play it.

 

Looking at the rest of the reward ships; the only one I don't already have is Budyonny. I guess I'll just wind up with a bunch of new camos and more captains to populate my 'Untrained Captain's Home.'

 

I choose to earn my Graf Spee the 'long way,' so my time to complete the Santa Convoy Campaign just over a week. However, if I can keep up the pace of clearing two campaign stages per day; there should be no trouble completing it within the time that remains.

All the Tier 6 ship commanders you get from the convoy are 1 point. 

 

This. I actually kept the leander and got the camo & 3M (I think) credits when I complete that.

I'm currently grinding through the tech tree Leander and am working on Stage 3 of the Santa Convoys.  Will I end up with two Leander's once I finish it?

Very surprised, it took me 8 games to get the Leander in the mission.  Guess that is an advantage of having both an Atlanta and a Belfast - averaged about 300 hits per game.

 

Going to try it again with the Farragut mission - will take more games, but (at least in COOP) they give you broadsides and 15-20 citadels a game with Atlanta/Belfast is not uncommon.

 

Very happy to have Leander, skipped 3/4 of the Danae and the entire Emerald.  Unfortunately I already have (or have had) the rest of the reward ships.  At least I get back Fuso and Budyonny plus port slots from Farragut and Bayern.  

 

LOVE THIS EVENT!!!  6 ships (including Graf Spee) for just playing the game!

 

* If you already have a ship, it is my understanding that you will get a CO, a port slot, permanent camo and the coin equivalent of purchasing the ship.  You will NOT get 2 of the same ship.

I don't have any of the RN cruisers. Do I get to skip directly to the rewarded ship if I finish the task?

Yes, you skip directly to Leander.  The Tier 2-5 will not be open however after you receive it.

If you already have the Convoy ships they give you the credit cost.  They also replace your Captain with the 1 point Captain,and put the original in Reserve.  Super irritating.

I was actually glad to get the Leander via the mission instead of grinding through the Emerald, which I'm absolutely hating. I'm just trying to get to the Fiji and Ed. Played them in PT and they are pretty good.

That Leander Commander is 1 point?

 

All those regular tech tree ship captains are.

 

Graf Spee commander (the one from the Santa's Convoys campaign) is the only one with 10 skill point.

 

The Spee captain from Hunting Graf Spee captain also comes with a single skill point.

No you will get an extra port slot and credits.  It will also move your current captain to the barracks intalling the new 1 point captain.  So don't forget to move him back.

Yeah it was a nice surprise.  I was well past that tier in most of the other lines but was only up to the Emerald for Britain.  I enjoyed the Emerald compared to everything before it, but a free jump up, never going to pass that up lol
