I like them, but there are a few things that feel...off I guess? They're great and fun, and the two I've played today I won, (but only with two stars) but they just feel...idk, not quite as good as last years mission. Last year's mission was a convoy escort, like Raptor Rescue or Aegis. I highly enjoy those two missions, it really feels like you're part of a Naval convoy...

 

This years mission is more like Defense of Naval Station Newport...which is honestly my least favorite of all the operations. Its not that its hard, its just... I dunno...doesn't feel really like a Naval operation. =/

 

However! That isn't to say I dont enjoy it at all! Its a lot of fun for what its worth. Its crazy, its fast paced, its mayhem, especially with all the secondary stuff going on. Its just..insane and I love it lol

There are a few things I'd like to see changed though. First, the ship modules. Those should have been free to mount during the event. After the event, they could have just been taken away. I dont like the fact I have invest several million credits just to equip a ship I wont get to keep. Doesn't seem right to me.

Second thing, is how the pumpkin crates are being handled. I feel every camo should be able to be gotten for free. I've gotten one so far, the one for the Benson which is one I actually wanted (I dont have the Benson, but I do plan on getting her soon) But having the crates tied to the stars makes it VERY hard to A: actually get them, and B: to actually get them ALL unless you buy a bunch of crates. It really isn't cool at all.

The secondary range on the Magnu-S I feel a bit too short, as is the main gun range. I mean really? Only 8km? Why not just make it 10km. That feels a bit more right honestly.

Also the torpedo launchers on the Magnu-S seem very VERY fragile. I lost both tubes half way through my second mission. Thats just...thats TOO much really.

 

Over all though, this whole thing seems pretty fun. Needs work, but I'm enjoying it for what its worth. :)


Now to get 5 stars!

I'm kind of ambivalent to the events. WG seems so desperate to sell stuff, that they are not willing to give much of anything away easily anymore. 

And it really bothers me that they give us ships, and then leave us stuck with upgrading them....Yes I know we get the upgrades back, but then, I didn't need them did I? You equip all the Tier 8 Halloween ships, you've blown 25 mil + for a chance at winning 1.5 mil? Some flags? A small chance of a camo for a ship you don't play? :cap_hmm:

Explain this to me in a way that makes sense?

I LOVE THEM! :) Especially now you have special consumables.

Though as you said the upgrades should be for free, also retraining of the captains not to forget!

Yup right on the money, I have no credits and 3 ships that i still have to buy upgrades for. I had to sell a bunch of camos just to upgrade the cruiser and now I am making negative credits for doing the scenario.

I think this is probably a good summary of what I'm feeling. I have to spend about 7.5M credits just to fully outfit just one of these ships. 

Meanwhile I am waiting for more credits to purchase:

Yorck
Gneisenau
Gaede
Edinburgh
La Galissonniere

Kirov
Kongo
Iowa

Explain to me again why I should play this mission?

Depends on your situation I guess. Most of the <1000000 credit ones, I had kicking around in inventory. The 1-2 million credit ones, I had 2 lying around, and I spent 50 dubs to demount the other 2. The 3 million credit ones, I'm not bothered about.

 

Although, because I only have 2 Tier 9s, and neither have the second 3 million credit upgrade, if I did have the creds, I'd buy the ones my Roon and FdG need, and use them.

 

Why am I doing this mission? For the camos. I run standard account, and I'm finding that speeding through a stock grind as fast as possible for Tier 8+ burns a LOT of camo.

The missions are hard, but it does provide a good challenge. Timing on the use of consumables is super crucial. The Magnu-S invulnerability consumable allowed me to ram the Gorgon w/o any damage. It sunk pretty quickly. Team coordination is super important as well. Sometimes MM give you the perfect team, other times, it doesn't. For the 3 Halloween crates I earned so far, I did get the CV camo though. But that means I now have to grind the USN CV line. I already started the IJN line a while ago. Oh well :cap_book:
