started playing operations (Hermes) during my grind of Lyon. It seems like the win rate in these ops are 100%, and you can easily score 1500+ base exp every game. 

 

Are all ops like this? From a grinding perspective, I don't even see the point of playing randoms anymore...even though randoms are whats fun.

Only tier 7 ops are that profitable.  When Narai was available you can farm even more exp and credits.

Operations are easily the fastest way to grind through a ship or farm elite captain exp, especially if you find several other players to division with consistently to run whatever operation you want.

I think it depends on the op and ships you run. (ie. how easy it is to 5-star with the usual teammates)

I played the crap out of Ultimate Frontier, because using Fiji or Gneis, (Shchors the odd time) it was extremely easy for me to get 5 stars consistently with completely random teammates. No other op I've tried so far has given me anywhere near the success rate.

It's only the T7 operations that really earn well as an alternative to Randoms, and only within a narrow degree (the operations that aren't timed, like Narai until it was pulled).

The regular T6 operations earn halfway between a regular T6 Co-op and a T6 Random game on average, as WG had intended.

Randoms is still for the majority of Campaign/Challenges/Personal Mission requirements, as well as general XP/Credit grinding as long as one did something in that match before sinking (some damage and left the spawn point).

After players learn how not to suck but before the decent players get bored the Tier 7 Operations are a good way to farm XP and Credits.

Narai was better.

 

 

Aegis is still good for the T6 ones.

The waiting for orders period kind of dampens the XP per minute...unless you start throwing some silver at it.

Nah you just use more than one ship and rotate.

I only have one 7, so I'm biased.

or you have multiple ships of the right tier so you level 2 or 3 commanders, or a premium of the right tier, so you can swap a commander back and forth between their regular ship and the premium, thus levelling just 1 commander with ~5mins between each game.

Most ops generate ludicrous credit amounts so even paying the 75k a time is fine.

I paid a lot when I was running Narai to keep running it in the Atlanta.

Operations are excellent way to farm XP. I ground Richeliu swiftly up to Alsace almost entire in Operations. 

In T7 Atlanta and Belfast will farm credits like crazy, especially with flags. I always run a 20% flag on those ships. On Narai I probably farmed over 50 million credits in Atlanta alone....

Narai was best for this. Sadly no more.

T7 works well for farming. T6, not as much.

RIP Narai.

 

the new French one is very close to the XP amounts of Narai, all flagged up with good cammo and for the first win of the day you can clear >4000 free XP, >18000 ship XP and >35000 commander XP using a French BB, even the likes of Indianapolis can clear over 3700 free XP, >10800 ship XP and >27000 commander XP, (both cases 5 star wins)

It's not even close to as good as Narai if those are the numbers you are talking about....

Operations are a HUGE success.

1)  No Teamkill damage -- no damage results from recklessness, and no penalty shows up at the end of the battle report.

2) No Detonations. -- Much more fair than 'fun and engaging' battle mechanics.  Leave your det flags behind.

3) You are fighting bots -- for those who object to shooting at people behind those ships.

4) Rewards are much better than Co-Op

5) For the T7 matches..  YOU GET TO ABUSE THE ATLANTA !!!!!

6) For the T6 matches, You get decent enough rewards to grind your low hull battleships/cruisers, and they aren't that wicked.

actually its almost identical Narai, if you played both in the same manner sticking to the escort mission and didn't go off on your own to farm extra damage, which often came at the expense of finishing the mission with 4 starts vs. 5 stars, because the main form off AA and high RPM have gone off to do their own thing to the left or right.

PVP is the place for the best rewards, but if you're a PVE oriented guy, Ops are a must because Co-op is very poor in payouts.

 

The reason is simple.  The amount of targets in Co-op are miniscule, so there's less damage you can possibly do, so less credits, less XPs, less everything.  Operations are target rich.  PVP is still in general a better payout than Ops, though Narai was pretty dang good in rewards.

 

The problem for the PVE-only guys is that this is pretty limiting.  If the tier you want to play isn't the featured Operation one, then too bad, so sad.  Not to mention most of the tiers are not covered by Operations.

I.... don't know what to tell you, my average xp in Narai was probably 500 higher at least than the current one.

Atlanta loves operations.

Both credit and captain exp.

However, currnt operation with Lyon is great with AA build.

Yep.  Farmed Pensacola playing Aegis solo in Cleveland.

Now I'm farming New Orleans playing Hermes in Pensacola, but I've found a good team.  I'll tell you what, our 5-star rate is impressive, but in terms of XP I do better solo.  They're so good they kill everything before I can deal real damage.  Fire a salvo at a ship and it evaporates before the shells are half-way there.  Ambivalence.

I only have one T6/7 ship so I pay the 75K.  But you'll earn a bit more than that in the op, so take the XP and run.
