Pray your team doesn't suck. And play a BB you're good with. If you have a bit of luck, you can carry the last five or six ships on your own with a bit of care, but you won't get full stars.

Well, if you can convince players to stop bringing destroyers, it would be a big help.

Nope, it's just the teams, that and WG turned up the difficulty on an already difficult scenario.

Did it yesterday and 5 starred it with no problem. Didn't seem like the bots were shooting as well as they are in the other scenarios.

not shooting the same target and not landing those volleys generally have grave consequences in any operation at any tier. Having an Aircraft Carrier really helps on Defense Naval Station Newport. Not having to worry about/dodge Torpedo Bombers is not only a big plus it makes it easier to monitor the spawns and aim both torpedoes and main batteries.

Sound like my son last night. Before my son joined a friend & I had won 2 of 2, one with 5 stars, the other with 3 stars. My son is the better player of our group.

5 stared it and 3 stared it yesterday but far more teams just fell apart. I wasn't necessarily playing a ship I wanted to play, due to the Russia mission. Makarov and Molotov are not bad ships for it though.

This one has been a bit frustrating for me so far.  Not sure if just a lot of new players or we've all forgotten how to play it. 

Had a 5 star in the bag last night after 3 losses and a 1 star win.  Of course, we wound up with 4 stars when the final salvo from the last BB alive destroyed a shore installation just as the team killed him.

Same thing with me when I tried it last night.  Last to live.  #1 on scoreboard.  But a loss since everyone died.  Haven't bothered since.

You mean you wish the people bringing destroyers
1) Brought the right ones
2) Knew how to use them.

I've been top of the leaderboard in every operation so far where you are able to bring destroyers. I even got complimented by somebody one of the times I brought a destroyer into Newport yesterday.

Destroyers in this operation are generally a handicap.  You need high output DPM ships to deal with the hoard of ships that you need to deal with.  Most DD skippers tend to spam torps at long range and hope one or two hit. 

The irony is that I got a Torpedoman award in this scenario with a Farragut.

The Scenario rewards are bringing bad players to the Scenarios, I remember that weeks ago it was easy to win 4 or 5 stars and victories were almost sure. Through the Scenarios I won all the xp necessary to research the Mahan, and sometimes I was the top player at Newport op. But now, there are many players doing some YOLO, AFKs, ignorant players and those who are playing operation for the first time.

If it's hard to win at Newport this week, for the Ultimate Frontier...

Just yesterday I did 159k+ damage in my Anshan in the very first game I ran yesterday in my Anshan in Newport, which is probably the highest damage I've done in any ship for this operation. Playing a destroyer in Newport (and any operation) is about playing smart. You need to play smart in any ship type though as well, whether destroyer or not.

I personally like to run Newport in my Bayern with AA spec, specifically manual AA.

I setup in either the west or east side of the island that covers the middle lane to work as an AA platform  for any planes that dare get close, as well as acting as a damage sponge for any enemy ships that get close.

Bayerns' guns may not be very accurate especially against bow on ships rushing you down but when you do get those bow penetrations you pretty much nuke the enemy ships.

Staying around there also allows you to act as a secondary battery station, the DDs will get close and your secondaries will hurt them.

 

In general the best thing you could end up having is at least one CV a few Clevelands and a New Mexico or Fuso. 

The CV can take care of far and important targets (mainly the enemy CVs and BBs), the Clevelands can spam down the enemy ships as they rush in as well as provide amazing AA screening and to finish off the New Mexico or Fuso take care the role of pure damage dealers, since they put down a lot of shots down range.

One final thing as well, if you're a BB and acting as a damage sponge near the end when the Izumo spawns, if you KNOW you're going to die, the best thing you could do is ram the Izumo to deal massive damage.

Well these are my 2 cents, good luck with the operation mate. :Smile_honoring:

Yeah, but that was your mom. She has to compliment you, it's like the law. :)

Yeah a well played destroyer is always a good addition to the team IMHO. Played a match with my Independence and watched this DD player just go waaaay to the north of the map. I thought to myself that was stupid but gave him fighter cover anyways since the bot planes spawned from up there. He did remarkably well, killing off spawning ships, knocking out carriers, etc. I was very impressed with his gameplay and skill. I think having my planes spot targets for him while he smoked up was helpful to him as well and when the enemy planes showed up, I got to slaughter them as they appeared.

So now you're resorting to personal insults when you are unable to refute a rational, logical response?

Well, no, actually it was a joke, as evidenced by the little smiley face at the end of the sentence.
