1st off thank you WG'ing for another mission that gives a unique Capt among other goodies (got 5K Free XP from the container). 2 :Smile_great::Smile_great:

BUT... :Smile_smile:...

  1. PLEASE no more missions where you have to kill ships of a specific nation(s) while using ships of another specific nation. Everyone is running the ships they have to so they can complete the mission but in doing so you end up with game after game after game where there are no ships of the target nations you need to kill OR maybe 1 and then everyone goes nuts trying to kill it and ignore objectives and commons sense. I don't know how many games I went without seeing a German or Japanese ship at all never mind just 1 or 2. 
  2. NO MORE must play Russian ships for a mission for a long time please LOL. Man I am some sick of playing Molotov, Kutuzov, and Chapayev now LOL.

Seriously, thanks again. Excellent rewards for the mission.

Meta changing missions suck, when will WG figure this out.

It's an excellent mission, I think. The IJN/German requirement was enough of a twist that ppl found it not easy.

First congrats AdmiralThunder.  I haven't started yet (its that work thing.)

Unfortunately you're going to have to endure it again in about 2 weeks when the Franz Jutland missions start (Part 1: deal 50K damage to USN, and VMF ships.)

and its a big Butt.

Butt yeah...I agree.  Nation specific damage is just a way of drawing out the agony.  If they do it, it would be nice to have mirror missions to encourage folks to drive ships that meet the damage requirements for the other mission.

So like if one mission is "do X amount of damage to Japanese Ships"  the mirror is obviously "While driving a Japanese Ship do X amount of damage for Y prize".

easy peasy lemon squeezy

Such an easy solution but here we are. It's a good idea. They should make it "nation vs nation" events based on historical battles.  Like the Bismarck and Hood, do damage to British/German ships in the opposite ship and get a commander for both nations when it's complete.

 

Also, on a side note, I complete a lot of missions in scenarios when possible. Oh you want me to kill 3 Japanese ships, Operation raptor rescue is against solely Japanese opponents.

Gratz Thunder! I still plugging away at trying to kill 3 German ships..... Is the captain special or just an ordinary 10 pointer? Not going to bother for a regular one, have plenty in reserve that are better. Besides with a 200% bonus on first win and the free 24 hours of premium time, makes more sense to grind individual ships than the same old ones over and over and over and over.. I start a match and if there isn't any IJN or German ships, just sit at spawn, it is tiresome. Oddly enough when I do that, I still manage to get in the top 5. Got lots of PvP players doing weird things in a match.

at least its getting damage and not kills, getting damage on certain ships is easier than getting kills

Hmm now that I think of it I probably need to run my Full Secondary Build Bismarck a lot this weekend...

If enemy is in a frenzy trying to kill German ships I will make things like that one weekend where I was a Corgi and enemy went into a feeding Frenzy to kill me and if they ever managed to accomplish this they did so after having to sail over their sinking comrades.

I got mine a little while ago, finished mission in 1 day so the requirements where not bad, I just played the required ships and not worried about what had to be completed,  I think you try too hard and mess up when you are targeting one type of ship, just play the game , help your team win and it all will work out,   now I got to figure out where to put him,  anybody have any ideas on a good ship to put him  in

The mission is pretty rage inducing. Nothing more annoying than just having one German ship in a match and you spend your time hunting for it. Course then the other 4 Russian ships on your team are doing the same thing. Anyways the new penalty system isn't working right. I hold my fire until I get in range of what I am hunting, ignoring everything else, and if someone else kills the German ship, I just leave the match. Still haven't turned pink. I had to laugh, one match I actually earned 19 credits and maybe fired 2 salvos. I suppose I need to make some hoops as annoying as this mission is, if Wargaming ever wants my money. So sick of playing Russian ships that I probably will sell my tech tree crap and be done with them.

It's really not that bad but everyone seems to expect to finish as soon as it's released. Just chill. If you want to get it faster, get a division and do ops that have the opposing ships you need. You only need 3 of each.

Yeah divisions are the way to go for sure. I think the thing that annoys me the most is there is a +200% xp first win bonus going and free premium time yet I am stuck playing the same ships over and over again. It is annoying. A better mission would have been to be in an Allied ship sinking an Axis ship and start it at tier 5, not 6. But I suppose the Russian navy was pretty important during WW2, needs to be honored for their glorious service because the Japanese and German navies would have run amok without the Russian ships doing their thing...

Play what you want and then come back to the mission in a few days when not as many people are trying to do it. This happens every time a new mission is released. At least I find this approach less annoying lol.

I will do that, just rage quit another match and decided to come to the forums to blow off steam. I had to laugh because on Reddit,  there is a great thread on this matter that is far more colorful than anything here. Seems I am not the only annoyed player. Honestly was hoping to be done with the mission early so I could take my German and IJN ships into Coop so at least the other players would have something to shoot at and I could cycle thru all my premium ships with my 19 point captains for those two nations. Seemed a logical thing to do, everyone wins. 

BTW for anyone annoyed like I am about the mission, this is a great humor site that will cheer you up:

Hm these mission can be done rather easily if you play operations such as Defense of Naval Base Newport as it features both German and Japanese ships, should be doable to do it in one go if not 2 games. Doesn't seem so bad when you look at it this way.

Someone pointed out that the Raptor Rescue Scenario has IJN ships as the OpFor. Made that piece of the requirement much easier. Got them in one game.

My new Russian Captain was piped aboard the Varyag earlier this evening. Thanks for the ship and Captain WG!

I agree.  I'm at the point I need the 3 IJN and KM kills, but last 2 games were all Russian ships with a few USN in the mix.  Just going to wait for the off hours in coop when player population dies and it is mostly bots.

Lots of PvP mains ducking into PvE. Lots of "don't shoot x ship or x ship because those are mine." I ask, "why don't you stay in PvP where there are more ships to shoot at?" They reply "Missions are a pain. Make sure you leave my ships alone."
