French Progression, Part 1

Land 1,000 enemy hits with main guns and 25 enemy hits with ship torpedoes

I don't play DD, WG needs to let players play the way they enjoy, not force them to play "their way"

and progression mission is random only

Some Battleships as well as most Cruisers have Torpedoes as well.

Also if the requirements are simply Torpedo hits instead of just ship launched torpedoes then CVs can be used as well.

Ya this irks me as well... torps are just innately unreliable damage and it'll be a pain to hit 25.

It did say you could do this and Co op correct? If so, problem solved to accomplish expeditiously.

What have we got today?

PvE players whining about PvP only rewards? Nope!

Non clan battles players whining about clan battles only rewards? Nope!

Battleship players whining about anything-but-battleship rewards? DING DING DING WINNAR!

 

Get over yourselves, people.  There have been missions that restrict based on tier, nation, ship type, damage type, etc since the beginning of the game.  They want you to step outside of your comfort zone a little bit.  Do it, or don't get the rewards.

1) Read the requirements. SHIP TORPEDOES. This is not restricted to destroyer play (though aircraft carrier players might be out of luck).

2) I baled out of North Cape after phase 2 because too many of the easier or less-grindy mission tasks in later phases were restricted to or optimised for battleships or destroyers, or more broadly, Tier 5+ ships that had HE in their guns rather than my British cruisers. Instead of beating my head against a brick wall or simply complaining about how unfair life was, I took the time to grind my way up to a Tier 5 (US) destroyer and am working up to a Tier 5 (UK) battleship. I have flexibility now, and with a DD-only mission available to win the French T6 premium DD looming with the drop of tomorrow's patch, I am congratulating myself on my adaptability and forward planning. My suggestion is that you do the same, so you too will be more ready the next time something like this comes up.

Torp kills in ships that aren't destroyers are always the best.

Oh no. Another week or so in random where destroyers disregard the objectives looking for torpedo hits.

Torped a Shima with Tirp once. Now that's real justice.

More than half of the ships in the game carry torpedoes, including all destroyers, most cruisers and several battleships.  "Forcing" you to use the second most common weapon type in the game for all of 25 hits is not an egregiously restrictive requirement.
