I don't understand indianapolis marathon, Part 5

" win a battle, cause 15k hp dmg, set fire 5 times in random or ranked"

I set 6 fires, 40k HE dmg and won the battle in random with my Atlanta but i did not get credit for the mission?

any thoughts

I think it’s bugged because I did the same and nothing. That or it could be a discontinued mission, one that ended already and we’re seeing, something very odd.

Yeah, I can confirm it worked for me.  Completed it while doing 21k damage in fires, and won the game.

Has to be fire damage, not HE damage.

I completed mine I made sure it was 5 fires exactly no more no less. with the win and 15k fire damage.

I did notice however after I collected the container the mission was still there as if I hadn't done it, but after I played another game it disappeared.

Did you use the correct tier ship?

Originally you said 40K HE damage. 40K raw fire damage would be almost impossible with 6 fires I would think lol. Assuming you started those exclusively on BBs who just burned their repair I can see it, but you probably meant HE shell damage. At the bottom of your results screen, under other, you will see how much damage fires you set caused. You have to win, you have to set AT LEAST 5 fires (more is fine), and the cumulative tick damage has to be 15k.

^^ This ^^

I could only manage it using the KGV with HE in a 110K dmg mission against the reds (we won). I managed just shy of 18K in fire damage.

I found it a real PITA because as soon as you started a fire, someone else would come along and pound the target with AP or even more HE, so the target would die or put out the fires. Quite the challenging mission, I thought. 

Hope you sort it out!

I thought so too but it's not. The 15k has to be from fires burning. I spent most of the night last night getting this in the Conqueror and saw the same thing.

I thought of two solutions:

1) Use different ship class. If it's not registering on a cruiser, run a BB or DD. I got mine first try via my Taiho.

2) Check your camos and flags. You can mouse cursor over the book icon on mission to see what rewards it gives. You've a good memory, you can check the flags/camos to see if maybe you got the reward already--it sounds like mission can be bugged and simply needs another battle or two before game realizes you fulfilled the requirements.

Just to further elaborate, HE damage ≠ Fire damage.  The mission explicitly asks the player to deal damage via fires, not shell hits.

Nope, mission works

Pure firedamage can be misleading since you only see this at the end of the match. Also: did you used aT6+ ship?

BTW I copy the original mission text from the webpage. It clearly say fire damage.

June 8–11 Set 5 fires and cause 15,000 damage to enemy ships by fire in a winning battle.
