Some didn't finish.

Some already HAD the Bismarck -- so they got credits instead.

Fastest collection is hilarious... Took someone 9 mins to buy boxes from the shop.

 

I already had the Bismarck unlocked. I just never bought it. But it's pretty amazing more people didn't finish... The tasks were super easy.

Some people have other things going on in life, not sure why this would be surprising.

Yep, those 11 million credits helped me buy Khab and Z-52.

Already have the Bismarck, and 70 million credits sitting around.  So the credits would have been nice, but I don't have an immediate use for them.  Got close, but didn't quite finish in time.  Didn't help that I went on vacation and spent a week at a beachfront resort during the campaign.  I think I made the right choice.  LOL

While I didn't make it to the end of the campaign to receive the Bismark, I did finish the ships crests collection to get the Camo. Once I finish my grind up the German BB line, I'll be all set.

Guys there's a reason the "fastest" collection was done in quotes, note how the fastest completion isn't.

I had the Bismarck too and that 15.9 million credits really helped when I bought and outfitted the Friedrich der Grobe. I too am rather surprised that so few were rewarded as it only required a tier 5 to do the missions.

True but this didn't require hours and hours of play every day to finish. I wonder if people were trying to complete every task before going to the next mission?

EU posted the same stats, which makes me wonder if someone copy-pasted the other. If this is the world-wide statistic, then I'd say the active player base of this game is much lower than I expected.

Fastest collection was bought and paid for via containers.  Means nothing.

 

If I had the spare cash, I'd have loaded up on the containers just for the 14 signal flags in each.

Just think of how many more Bismarks would have been given out if people had had the extra 2 hours :teethhappy:

Thing is, I have a ton of play time, and it took me 3-4 days maybe 5 to get them done, just going through and not repeating, because a match would have too few of a ship type if at all, or wasn't credited first to spot, etc. Hell, I had all but one non hood misson done before the extended maintenance, and it was 5 citadel hits in a match where the day before I chose that mission a few days ago, I had racked up citadels every match. Even out tiered in Tirpitz against tier 9 BB's. For a while I struggled on knocking out modules and turrets, even with DB Saipan that any other time knocks out props and DD turrets no issue. So someone of my skill or lower, with less time, etc? It's really easy to have missed out on it.

I didn't do any of the tasks that required playing or targetting a specific ship. (although I did play ships best suited to the task, like BBs for damage tasks)

 

Mostly I repeated the base XP tasks. (easier for a free player than the modified XP tasks)

I had the Bismarck, and have over 200,000,000 credits banked.  It was a fun campaign, as there were lots of goodies other than the final prize.  And even then, the 10 million credits is still 10 million credits.  

 

For me, I just load up some tasks, and play normally.  Don't even think about achieving a task or not.  Just play my normal random game.  And..voila...tasks area achieved....goodies awarded.

The tasks were super easy.

 

Also depends on what people have in port.  Part of the reason I got the cash was because I had the ship and could do a good bit of damage with it most of the time.  It is my highest avg damage BB that I own or have played.

Well, considering you had almost 3 weeks to do it with 3 weekends between. Only 20% of player got it. I was expecting at the very least 30-35%. So yes it is surprising. Especially since you could have repeated the easy XP tasks.

Only 20% got the ship but there could have been another 30% that got the cash because they completed it.  There is info missing to make any real comments on how difficult it was to get.

With a campaign like this you choose the tasks you can easily complete then when you have completed it then and only then do you try to finish them all.
