Vive La France - Part 1

Take a (French) Dip!

Containers | Missions | Marathon

We're diving deep into French Frenzy! Strap in - the party is raging across the next two Updates.

Part 1

Containers and Collections

We announced the French Collection earlier -- here's how you unlock Collection Items!

In Parts 1 and 2 of our Vive la France event, you'll have access to a mission chains for French Containers. Each Container gives you the following: 

  • 3x "Revolutionary" camo
    (Provides standard camo bonuses, +75% XP, and +30 Credits) 
  • 5x "Zulu" eb9c29ba-3f86-11e5-a922-000c29ca62ad.png, "Papa Papa" fea7f0c8-a27f-11e5-afd2-000c29ca62ad.png, or "Juliet Charlieebab91ac-3f86-11e5-a922-000c29ca62ad.png  signal flags
  • A "Vive la France!" Collection Item
  • A chance of an early French battleship unlock mission!

You can also head to the Premium Shop and grab a Premium Container with the following:

  • 5x "Revolutionary" camo
  • 10x "Dragon" fcc4ca5c-3733-11e7-8393-d89d6715223c.png, "Wyvern" 0b8a573a-2c32-11e7-8ceb-d89d6715223c.png, "Red Dragon" 0b8ac404-2c32-11e7-aa08-d89d6715223c.png, "Ouroboros" 0b8a195a-2c32-11e7-aa16-d89d6715223c.png, or "Hydra"0b891afa-2c32-11e7-9a6d-d89d6715223c.png flags; or 500
  • A "Vive la France!" Collection Item
  • A chance of an early French battleship unlock mission!

That's right! Four French battleships-- Bretagne, Normandie, Lyon, and Richelieu -- are available a whole Update in advance through special combat missions! There are four different missions you can unlock from Premium French Containers. 

You can only unlock these missions while they're active. If you open French Containers after the missions end, the mission unlocks won't be available.

There are 4 combat missions that can be received from containers; no extra missions will be available if you receive all of them.

So you can either try to grind the base XP to get enough French containers to "potentially" unlock French BB missions, or you can just go to the Premium Shop and buy them from there.  

Interesting.

Ah but look closely, Operations are included, 5 stars in ops can give you a nice haul of base xp, plus buying containers just gives you more chances to unlock the missions. Also @AdmiralThunder looks like Wargaming might be listening to the plight of Co-Op mains (at least in this case).

Nice, though I have to say with the max number of free containers being 25 and 18 items needed to complete the collection ,  its gonna be pretty close since some duplicates will drop.  Nevertheless, me likey.

Well that made things easy, I only wanted to keep the Rich, Bret, and Alcase in this line and this nails 2/3 and gives a HUGE head start on 1/3.

Well not all of us "Co-Op Mains" agree with the poster I think you are talking about, I personally prefer Scenarios over Co-Op or Random. But I have been playing more randoms just for the credits.

For making it perfect they should add at least operations to the second part for the PvE players.

Opening them up to coop and operations seems to indicate they want everyone to get into the French BB line...

A chance of an early French battleship unlock mission!

This is of course, interesting... pray tell, what are the odds/chance of this happening? Similar to a snowball's chance in a very hot place? Or worse? 

"Unless stated otherwise, all "French Progression" missions are for ships tiers V+ and can be completed once per account in numbered order over any number of Random  battles." So is this one a typo or does it inject a roadblock for those who do not like coop or ops play?

Oh don't get me wrong, I'm not painting you all with the same brush here. I'm just pointing out that Co-Op mains are getting some love. That's all.

Uh, Erb. Reread the second part. Operations are allowed. Senarios are the official name of Operations remember? 

Unless stated otherwise, all "French Progression" missions are for ships tiers V+ and can be completed once per account in numbered order over any number of Random 14fe1550-2907-11e7-82e7-d89d6715223c.png battles

So the 2nd mission part is not for PvE

Yup you are right, so I may show my head a little more in Random, using my HSF Graf Spee, I got Thea Kreutzer up to 16pts so this might give my last three.

Thank you for mentioning me so I see this. Yes it is cool that they are allowing Co-op to participate. Weird though how Co-op is only shown for the 1st and 3rd stage and not the 2nd? Typo on the info page from WG or is it really only stage 1 and 3? (note I am NOT complaining - this is what we asked for inclusion - Thank you WG!!).

They did this with the BRN BB release too so it is nice to see it following with the French.

I didn't start those threads. When I was angry and posting in them it was at PVP players and the things they said about myself and other PVE players. Just to be clear. I advocate for a civil discussion on the topic of PVE inclusion. It is just a couple who go over the line with demands and such. That isn't me. :Smile_honoring:

Correct unless that is a typo?

I am ok with it just speaking as a PVE player if it is accurate though. I find it odd but am still ok. What is strange is the middle requirements wouldn't be overly easy in Co-op so seems strange leaving it out?

Again, not complaining though.

I know you didn't, I just mentioned you since you are a relatively well known Co-Op main and I thought you might like to know.
