I've tried five times to beat the Rasputin event, have had no success. Starting to get frustrated. Been using the DD (Blade), rigged out the captain and got fire flags up. Need some advice on how to beat this. Short of pulling together six friends and divisioning up, I don't know how I'm gonna pull a win out.

If all the ships are the same as last year, the only good one is the cruiser.

It feels like the order of most useful ships is Igor, Blade and Jackal or Blade, Igor and Jackal. The battleship doesn't really have much of an impact in this operation.

Jackal's job is taking out catapults. load AP, keep it loaded, and target catapults first.

Igor is a flame thrower. light a fire, switch targets and light a fire on another one, switch back and light 3 more fires, rinse and repeat.

Blade has decent torps, but it's main job is to keep the Transylvania from being seen with it's smoke and stay alive until the end, where it's torps are invaluable at getting floods going on Rasputin. stay away from zikasas and don't get spotted as the nearest one to a catapult.

The first two-thirds of the scenario is easy. Pick off the two or three Zikasa ships and kill one or two catapults at a time. The last third is what screws me up. I'll stay inside the repair circle, smoke up the Transylvania, and use my damage control skill judiciously. I'll still get burned down every time. Or I'll go for a torpedo run on Rasputin from 5km and get nuked right before I lay down the salvo.

This event seems very heavily balanced against the player, almost unfairly so. Either all five teams I played with were composed of total potatoes or I am seriously screwing up. Possibly both, but that feels like a remote option.

The BB should keep AP loaded at all times and blast catapults and enemy BBs. I don't think their HE can start fires, don't remember if the DD can either now that I think about it. Anyways the Jackal should be in the circle with Transylvania to shield her and keep her moving. It is an important ships as the CA's would have a really tuff time dealing with the catapults.

If anyone who uses the Destroy and does NOT smoke the Escort ship, you are asking for an unnecessary failure rate percentage to creep up. This much I know.
