3 or 4 BB's work the best - focus on destroying catapults/trebuchet's first then the other ships.

? Cruisers - work best as flame throwers (fire build)

2-3 DD's - focus on sinking the enemy ships

 

Rule:

At least one ship needs to stay in the green circle to keep the Transylvania moving - leave the circle the ship stops and you immediately lose one star.

So eliminate 16 ships (stay focused on leading ships - there are distraction ships (2 trailing - you can ignore them).

Suppress 10 catapults  - bb's excel at this

Transylvania must keep 50% health so keep enemy ships away, kill all catapults.

Destroy Raputin - escorts first (DD's) everyone else focus fire on Raputin - just a guess... I've been in a game where it was done, but still missed one star (health 50%)

 

I haven't found a solid use for cruisers other than setting everything on fire.  HE only does 1000 max, AP 3000 max on the cruisers so??

 

So, part II....

 

Carriers will have a rough time as there is a large green gas which blotches out any manual drop, auto drop, drop drop outlines.

 

Rules:

Defend the 3 towers (2 must survive for a star)

Banish the Great Gorgon - 250000 HP AC carrier..

Banish Rasputin

Eliminate all foes in the filth (30 total)

Save Transylvania

 

Limitations:

BB range: 8km

CA range: 8km

DD range: 6km

CV - 1/3/1

 

Filth causes DOT

 

Each ship has a unique ability, I'd write it up but too lazy - WG will probably have a nice article on it when the patch drops.

 

The real rubs:

Ships are T8 but the repair bill is pegged at 75k credits.  Damage dealing potential will be high, but you won't get much for credits and XP - but the real reward is getting the "crates" for goodies (first one got 75 flags).

Not sure if this is the same as last year but if it is the cruiser was amazing, I found it far more effective than the BB's.

What he is describing is last year's event. I think this year it is different, you have all four classes of ships with special consumables as well as the "Taint". I guess it is possible you will have Transylvania and catapults in this year's missions but have seen nothing about that.

He is talking about the playtest version which is similar to last year but with a few differences. Looking at it and it looks like there will be a normal and hard mod so maybe hard is when the cv is added?

 

As for winning we won with 3 BB's and 4 cruisers, only part we failed was kill Rasputin, the Trans passed through the gate before we managed to kill him. The rest of it wasn't to bad, but I think you need at least 1 DD for the alpha torp strike on Ras to even have a chance of killing him.

Lots of DD torp spam seems to work best; and how do you cit a Nikolai? Get ready to cook some torp soup until you can, I guess.

Not sure why... This mode said I had no eligible vessels in my port.  And one time I checked, it said it was for TIER III, whereas every other look said Tier VIII.
