But seriously how do you get so much xp from scenarios ? You clearly have prem time right? Are you really running dragon flags and all that on your molo in scenario mode? I come out of scenarios with unimpressive xp and dont find it superior to random grinding despite all the euphoria others seem to have over them.

Base XP of about 2000, any boring +100% camo gets you to 4000, and premium multiplier to 6000?

It all depends on how many stars you get.

Here's a 5 star win on my Duca, the only bonuses I have is the 50% from the first win and the 50% from the camo. My base XP was 1895, which is half of that. If you add in premium, then the XP goes to something around 4.7k. In the OP's match, he clearly was using the revolutionary camo, which gives 75% more XP instead of the 50% from the tier 6 permanent camo. If I was using that camo plus a premium account, then my XP would go to over 5.1k. Add in a simple 50% XP signal, and that's 6k XP. There's no need for the special signals in order to achieve these kinds of results, just a reasonable combination of smaller bonuses, a good ship, and a 5 star win.

Premium time and the french camo, no dragon flags or special ones, economic but mot the 50% to xp one because I don't need XP on premium ships.

Exactly. And that can depend on the Op.

For example, I find Ultimate Frontier easy to 5-star in Fiji or Gneisenau. If that Op is featured, I add credit flags and camo to grind credits.

can make more in Randoms, but I can also make less. UF gives me a better consistent credit gain.

Now a T6 Op, like Aegis, isn't worth it for me, because the lower tier pays fewer credits, and I don't have (or know if there is in the tech tree) anything as suitable as Gneis and Fiji, and so far, UF is the only one I know well enough to 5-star consistently with random teams.

I just returned to operations after their initial release. The recent tier 6 op from last week was very easy to 5 star. I had success in leander, aigle, galiss, and fushun. I found the bbs to be too slow for my play style. Funny the current tier 7 op seems more difficult to 5 star with random teams. I had success with a team where someone brought a kaga. After that two additional tries were flops.

Cleveland does very well in Aegis.  Especially an AA build.

Pensacola does well in UF.  I'm grinding two T7 BBs so will probably play those most this week. UF is also rewarding for a well-played DD.

Aegis is alright in my book.

Do we have to see this crap every time you do 200k damage in a game?

I have a reverse Bell Curve distribution with Molotov in Aegis: Either it goes very well or very poorly. She is great guns & speed with a ping pong paddle for a rudder, all wrapped in paper mache.

I just never was able to make Cleveland work, don't like the guns.

Pensacola would be decent, I have Algerie and Schors, and they do ok too. Fiji is my go-to though, because the heals let be more self-sufficient. If I have to, (same with Gneis) I can go off by myself to complete a secondary objective. (for example, chasing down the CV and killing it before its escorts get me) Schors and Algerie, I'm more dependent on teammates pulling their weight.

Have you both tried to new 'improved' Ultimate Frontier?

The one that started today, not as it used to be.

So far I've seen the T7 version, which people take a Ranger, and we get our sterns kicked all over the sea. Or, everyone brings a BB, we get kicked all over the sea. It is amazing how bad a random group of player can play that operation, myself included. Now say it together, "It can't be just me". 

My accuracy is so far off it's embarrassing. Ships I can kick stern with in randoms get like half of the hits/damage I would expect in a normal battle. Not sure why... except that perhaps the constant movement around the map throws off our skills (not just mine). Today we had a Ranger run up to the NE corner of the map, you know, where like four red ships come bursting onto the map after the planes arrive.... that's just wrong. 

Someone needs to put a sticky note on the forum for folks to remember the battle order and where to be and when to be there. 

Nonetheless, even getting your stern kicked, it's different.

I guess if it bothers you so much I will quit posting them as a courtesy. Sorry about your negative reactions to them, I wasn't trying to cause any one grief. My point by the way, is how consistent you can do that kind of damage.

Multiple things mostly dealing with bot timing and behavior.

You still have the problems of the cagey carrier, having to hope one Battleship goes after the Atlanta, but....

The easiest is that the secondary save 2 forts, has become save 3 forts.

And these forts have apparently lost all armor, and bots will shoot at them constantly from KM away with easy hits (more on that later).

So that early Clemson, if not dealt with (and yeah, only BBs can deal with it, exactly what BBs are supposed to do - hunt DDs) will really wreck those Forts.  Let alone if you only get one BB to start, its practically a loss of 1 star from the start.

Otherwise, you know what, give a shot with a ship with Priority target on it.  You'll see the problem.  See other Forum posts actually about this.
