Even spamming nothing but HE Arsonist is one of the harder achievements to get. Did you look at how often people are getting that one before setting the requirements?

Yes we did. We also noticed the last time we ran with Arsonist, over 3000 people got that achievement and 750 got multiple.

You could also continue to play World of Warships as this contest is only promoted here in the forums and won't have THAT much impact on the game as a whole.

If anything, it'll hopefully offset the obscene number of battleships and destroyers in the queue trying to finish the North Cape and New Year's Raid campaigns. I approve of this timing.

However, I don't approve of the "total over the entire weekend" metric. It makes every contest into a no-lifer battle to see who can sleep least.

Nope, just get in and play. We gather the data at the end.

That is good but the other issue is having to grind a single ship match after match which is the main reason I play so little Ranked.

Yes, Niko and I did. Is it challenging? Yes, but it can be done. Thanks for the question and your feedback.

Thanks to both you and Niko for responding but as I said in my post just above yours the insane amount of grinding the same ship match after match is painful, I like to experience different flavors.

This contest is gonna be hard on skippers running IFHE. I have an Atlanta captain I use in my Cleveland; respeccing a 19pt captain is pretty expensive since this is about fires, not damage.

Somebodies got to do a lot of fail-divisions to get Orions into a match with Clevelands. :cap_haloween:
