French Collection???

So I've finished all the French collection missions available & I only got 1 BB (the T5) & 13 collection items & 12 duplicates (which w/a 3:1 trade leaves me 1 short)..

Now the fact I only got 1 BB is not a problem & the fact it was only the lowest tier 1 I could get is not a problem...in fact if I didn't get any of the ships that would not have been a problem because they are tech tree ships (even if they have some temporary "premium" perks) & eventually I will be able to get them just by playing...

But the commander is another issue if there will be no new container opportunities because the commander gives battle enhancing bonuses & those shouldn't be obtainable to some & unobtainable to others all based on RNG (or the need to spend $).

All the other "perked" commanders (Yamamoto/Dunkirk/Seagull(John Doh) were obtainable by completing the missions...& I don't mind waiting for another set of missions to finish it while you make some $ selling containers to those that can afford to buy them (I support your right to make $ off your product) just as long as the new missions become available sometime in the near future...preferably before or at the latest when 0.7.2 drops & the French BBs become available to all...everybody should have the opportunity to run the commander on the ships not just the people w/$ &/or the people w/lucky RNG...I actually thought I was gonna be 1 of the lucky RNGers as I had 13 originals & 5 dupes (only needing 2 originals out of the last 7) & then the last 7 were all dupes (Doh).

Hook us up now...was hoping to be able to run the new commander on my CA line in the meantime until I built up the BB line a little if I didn't get any of the high tier BBs (which I didn't).

I don't think the 10 Point commander is a Unique commander.. when I look at him, he doesn't have the Unique commander stripe.  ( his portrait, I don't have the commander as I know I wont get the required items)

Once you’ve completed the full Collection, Jean-Jacques Honoré will be recruited to your fleet as a Unique Commander for your French vessels! 

Jean-Jacques Honoré arrives with 10 Skill Points and the following Commander Skill enhancements:

Expert Marksman: Turret traverse boost is increased from +2.5° to +3° for guns smaller than 139mm and +0.7° to +1° for guns larger than 139mm
Adrenaline Rush: Reload time boost per 1% HP lost is increased from -0.2% to -0.25%
(These enhancements only apply if the Commander is trained in those skills) 
Scared Shipless All Commanders recruited without a vessel come pre-specialized for the Tier I cruiser of their respective nation

Spend $3.00 and buy one chest.....problem solved whether you get a dup or not.

The 7.1 French containers -25 total is Part 1 of the French BB rollout which spans 2 patch drops.  Expect more container opportunities when 7.2 drops.   This is similar to what WG did w/the DoY/New Year’s Missions.  If you only looked at the DOY campaign, there appeared to be a shortfall of containers, but the New Year’s Campaign provided more than enough to complete the Collection without a container purchase.

Exacly i have also pointed that the Vice La France event was a scam from WG to get people money !

must people wont be able to finish the mission if they dont spend money to get the french loot box......

i guess WG did not learn from the EA loot box scandal ?

 

i also feel that WG should add a mission where the player can finish the Vive La France event........ and WG should give money back to the player who have spend money only to get the 1 or 2 collection item missing to finish the collection........ 

 

to make a event and make it not possible to finish it if you dont buy premium box it totaly wrong and it remind me a lot of the EA Scandal

I paid $3 and got the tier 6 French BB mission. Was easy to complete. I think very few folks got tier7 BBs. I HAVE heard of people sinking a small fortune into crates and not getting any more BBs, though. The good news is the tier 6 French BB is WAY better than that slug at tier 5. It's like a dang hydroplane it is so fast and the guns are real flamethrowers with HE. Since the tier 8 French BB is another one of those Dumbkirk designs, I will be stopping at tier 7. I just have no love for those-all-guns- forward BBs after getting stuck with the Dumbkirk. And I have to agree with the those who say this French stuff is a plan by WG to sell those crates. Just not gonna do it.

Would need 2 chests for the 3 dupes I'm short (if I don't get an original in 1st) but don't have any $ to spend on games (dropped about $100 about a year & 1/2 ago but none to spare now). Don't even have a pay pal account (used friends last time & he just gifted stuff-Atlanta & doubloons-to me). Not in a hurry to get new commander (would have liked him earlier for CAs but not stressing it)...just hoping there's a Part 2 set of missions as hinted by the Part 1 so can get him eventually w/out having to wait for another year like the Bismarck rewards some have had to wait for (I got all my Bis rewards 1st time but just saying).

Something does seem strange with the item drops in the regular French containers.  My first 8 containers all had unique items, nice.  But my next 7 all had duplicates.  I had less than half the collection and then 7 duplicates in a row?  Calculated that to be a 0.34% chance.  Just unlucky?

Read the quote below as I completely agree and this is what I expect to happen. I expect you will be eating crow come patch 7.2

Just spent a hour or two getting through the last mission. Had 5 things to collect. Only 5. Out of the 7 containers that I got, 2 were badges and the rest nothing but duplicates. With the previous missions duplicates and this second one, I now need 1 more to finish the thing. Just 1 more friggin duplicate or (as would have been preferred) one more badge and I'd have 3 duplicates lying around. Back to back to back duplicates and just enough to ensure that I don't get that last one. They really need to stop with this RNG [edited]. It's bad enough that thing screws with me during matches; really don't need it picking favorites with things outside of battles.

You do know you can trade duplicates for the ones your missing?     I grant  you it's on a four or five for one basis....................................However  I've  gotten some completion that way.      And another thing  I'm not saying it affects it one way or the other however I got a thirty day premium and used almost all my good camo's and signals up,  Opening the containers on my highest level ship which at the time was my Baltimore,   I used that (the premium)to grind my way to a lot of Free Exp and got some tech tree ships done as well before I finally used the Free Exp to get the Missouri:cap_rambo::Smile_izmena::Smile_coin:PS  Good Luck hope it works out for you

Yep, I had barely any unique... But kept getting duplicates. I'm way short on what I need. I have 5 more chests to open and I still need 9 more unique items. So unless those chest are all unique... I'll still be 1 short and if any of them are dupes, it'll be 2 or more short.

This is only the first part of the missions for the collection. The purchased crates are for those too impatient to wait.

In my case, I knew I would not be able to get the PvP missions done in time with the Corgi event and my being a PvE main.

That's after the trade. I need one more. I have three sitting there, no more missions or chests to complete, and still need 1 more duplicate to trade in for the last collection item to finish it out. The last mission (that ties into the completion of the French BB Mission 2 (totaling 7 from 3&4) gave me 2 of the 5 badges I needed to fill while the rest were duplicates. Added with the others from the last group of missions, and I had enough to trade them in for the other badges minus 1.

 

As long as there is a French BB Mission #3 that they are going to add, I wont have a problem. Kinda annoying that I'll have to force my way through to finish it like the Duke of York thing. I would think that they would, but if they don't have that last mission or any plans to add another set of French crates to acquire that last duplicate... I'm gonna have some choice words to say about their RNG-style reward system.

 

I got the tier 5 ship and the tier 6 ship (cool but I could have gotten those regardless). With my moderate OCD however (I mean that as a joke but by god if I don't wonder if its true lol), that unfinished collection is going to drive me crazy.

In other words, impossible to complete without a third wave.
