Hermes issue

Sometimes after the Richileu has left the map he will get torped to death and the mission will fail. An additional issue with this is it is often a DD that hides in back while the others charge, far enough in back that he won't show up on radar. Imo both of these are undesirable but together it can be really aggravating. Especially if you have killed every visible ship on the map and then a DD pops up on the border and the Richileu is off the map.

I've also seen where a DD get's caught up in the wreckage and you cant target it, never had that issue until live..

Just had this happen. I typically enjoy the Ops, but feel that there are some pretty big issues that weren't called out in testing.

Tried the Op multiple times, and it is definitely got some issues. As it is, it's pretty much impossible to win as near the end the Richelieu dies no matter how you try to defend it. I don't mind a challenge, but this isn't worth spending any more time in the game this week as I pretty much play operations and co-op, and after this I've lost my appetite for the game for a while.

I thought that was on purpose to stop you from just running down the Graf Zep and ignoring the other ships.  If you just chase after the Graf Zep, the bot DD's will torp the Richi.

I only failed the first time because I (and no one) on my team were sure what to do. So we followed the Richelieu 

You have to stay out in front of the Richelieu and give him a smoke screen at the end. You should be able to pick off the DDs but you need to get there before he does. 

I haven't seen this so could be wrong but that has been working for me.

Well for me I just go all in towards those DDs and enemy ships at the last stage to ensure their attention is all on me and not on Rouan. Very risky maneuver, but can be done and greatly increases the chance of winning.

You just need one ship to be the sacrificial lamb to have those DDs drop all of their torps on you and will be in the process of reloading if they managed to get close enough.
