The playerbase is too stupid to handle co-op operations

Title says it all. Raptor Rescue and Killer Whale are the absolute worst. Players just randomly sail about, nobody escorts Raptor, nobody sails for the exit points. I had a battle today where all but 2 ships sailed off "to sink the carrier" and it was only myself and a sloooooow battleship escorting Raptor.

I've gotten five stars in all of the scenarios thus far (except Halloween). One of the secrets to "Raptor Rescue" is to have a "tanky" BB sail to the right of the Raptor in order to soak up torpedoes.

I watched vids before I even logged in.

I wish others would do the same.

That's actually a really good idea, there are several excellent videos on YouTube showing what players should do for each of the operations.

What does that tell you about Random battles? It's amazing to me that, in over 6,500 random battles, all twelve people, not one time ever, all worked together. The plan is B and C, you then see in chat, I'll get A. Then there is the "Battle Starts" and the team looks like you just uncovered a colony of ants. Of course there is the famous, get C, so you lead the charge and when the first enemy ship appears where there were 7 ships there now is just one. The rest stopped behind an Island, or turned tail and ran when the enemy opened fire. WG should reward dying in battle not surviving.

I was about to give up on the Dunkirk scenario as being too hard until I watched some videos. After that, I got several three to five star wins.

Hold on Pard, you have gotten 5 stars every time you have played a scenario?

Of course not, but I've gotten 5 stars in all of them (except Haloween) after learning how to play them and trying hard.

I happened to watch Jingles' video on the Dunkirk mission before it came out.  I was able to complete it for 5 stars the very first time I played it.  Watching such videos ahead of the mission release is a very good way to end up doing well in then when you get to play them yourself.

I've found that the base defense mission was particularly hard, given the strength of the attackers.  I know that I haven't completed that one for 5 stars.  Also, I only played a few of the Halloween missions.  I just couldn't get excited about playing ships that weren't mine and would help advance my own ships or captains.

They can't be very hard...my 13-year-old boy has done them, at least to 4 stars, and usually to 5 stars.   (On his own account, if someone brings that up.)

6 stars?  Thought I was doing good getting 5 stars on all of them, maybe I missed something? lol :Smile_facepalm:

The problem isn't that they're hard (port defense *IS* hard).  The problem is that they require team work.  And it doesn't matter how good any one player is on an operations team.  If you have some fools on your team, it will get nearly impossible to successfully complete a mission, let alone for 5 stars.

I farmed over 200 camos and lot's of credits on the Halloween mission. Yet in all of the times I played it, only once did the team get 5 stars.

Having the 'High Alert' torpedo skill is also a big plus, since information is shared and Raptor reacts to YOUR increased sensitivity.
