Out of curiosity, is hard mode worth playing in operations?  I've done the current one about half a dozen times and it seems pretty easy.  Gotten 5 star completion a number of times, and its bringing in the XP and credits, so I was thinking about trying it on hard.

Again, just curious.

Thanks,

B

Hard mode isn't available yet, it's still in testing.

Oh, got it.  Sorry for the dumb question then.  I saw it as a option but didn't try changing to it.  

Thanks for the quick responses!

Not so dumb. Many of us are waiting for hard mode. After awhile you get bored with getting 5 stars match after match. It would be fun to get a real challenge after the operation has become "old hat."

I suspect the Gold of France Operation is a semi-testbed for Hard Mode since it limits the Nations you can use and also has split tiers for BBs.

Have you noticed how WG have made all of the operations easier over time?

I don't know if they have gotten easier or if I have gotten better. However, I have noticed that in the past there were some I thought nearly impossible. Not so much with the current one. I got 4 stars my first time out with a random team of first-time players who didn't know anything about the operation.

I rewatched Jingles Vid on the Naval Station Newport Op originally posted when Ops were first released. That Op looks and plays no different now than it did on release. Players are just familiar with where/when the bots spawn. Killer Whale sure isn't easier, not that it was ever hard. I was 5 staring and topping the team in XP regularly with the 2 Tier 5 DD's from the Dunkirk op. It was always amusing to read the whining in chat about me bringing one and then completely wrecking both CV's and 3 or 4 other ships in the first three waves.

They've definitely gotten easier. I remember when the Newport once first came out, I couldn't 5 star it no matter how many times I played it. I just played it again recently and it was a cakewalk.

There seems to be either less bots in them after the first week and/or the bots that do appear are lower tier. Take Newport - from memory it used to spawn a Gneisenau in the final wave, now it's a Bayern. The cruisers that chased the carrier were tier 8, now they are tier 6. The spawns may still be the same, but the level of the opposing ships has decreased to make it easier.
