Tier VII/VIII Scenario for Kriegsmarine (or Axis) Ships?

As I'm sure most of us have heard, when Update 0.7.6 drops, we're going to be getting a new Scenario, Operation: Cherry Blossom, limited to Tier VIII Cruisers of the USN, BRN, and MN navies, much like how participation in Operation: Hermes was limited to Tier VII Cruisers of the same nations, with the exception of a few French Battleships. I'm a bit miffed, because I'd really love the chance to take my Bismarck and Prinz Eugen into Scenarios for once.

 

Is there any chance we'll be getting a Kriegsmarine (or Axis) themed scenario anytime soon?

I wholeheartedly agree! Scenarios need some KMS participation too!

Channel Dash-esque op is sorely needed

so basically evade torps and kill planes?maybe a fictional mission where you defend tirpitz from her doom. or help graf spe escape the royal navy fleet.

Why just KM?  Why not IJN, RM and KM?  The very scenario you object to allows all Allied nations to participate.

Heck, you could do a WWI era scenario that allows the RN, USN, MN, RM and IJN.

I was contemplating that very question last night.  The WWII "mission" scenarios are restricted to Allies (more or less) and while that raises some hackles, I support it because it allows the designers to have a good handle on what the player group will look like (as well as provide a good story).  But if one flips that, for a IJN or KM (or eventually Facist Italy) scenario, the allowed ships are just too few.  Ultimate Frontier gets around that by allowing all nations - not particularly good story telling.  (How many realize that the Op is the defense of a IJ nuclear program?)

So okay, we want a Scenario where the players are KM against bot Allies.  What ships can players bring?  You simply can't limit it to KM, even if you allow several tiers. 

Channel Dash, take out the flak towers on the approach to London, attack on Portsmouth, or something in Norway make good stories, but what ships are allowed?

From what I understand, tier 8 scenarios are forbidden. The Digital Fighting Elite complain about obviously lesser players getting experience and credits without first polishing the epeens of their betters.

Not any more, man.  The new Cherry Blossom Op is Tier VIII.  Perfect for grinding Cleveland.

Or they could create a new one. I have an idea for example: like the Operation Narai, a cargo ship has left Germany and it's carrying weapon prototypes, or another important thing, to a Japanese facility. Then both German and Japanese ships were assigned to escort the ship, with an allied fleet trying to destroy the convoy.

I see your point about limiting it to just KM ships wouldn't be the best idea, and am willing to amend my request to include the IJN as well, seeing as how we don't yet have the third Axis power in the game yet, at least, not with a full line. It would just be nice to be able to use my high tier ships (I'm only up to Tier IX in German battleships, and Tier VIII in German cruisers) in an operation for once.

I wouldn't be surprised that once we get an actual tech tree for Italians, WG makes a fictional scenario for the Axis power. You know, go sink some convoys around some fjords or something, then take out some Allied ships as usual, lol.

I guess ultimate frontier doesn't count

Scharnhorst is fun in that scenario and all, but I want to be able to use my Bismarck in a scenario.

You can also use Gneisenau, Yorck, Z-39, and Leberecht Maass, lol.

I agree, but ultimate frontier is available for all tier 7 KMS

I'm guessing OP wants something special with Axis theme that's limited to Axis ships, like how Operation Hermes and Cherry Blossom are for the Allies.

That's not a bad idea.  At all.  Why not drop a thread in the Game Suggestions forum.

Understood.

Yeah, that's tough.  The KM up north and the RM (?) in the Med.  Hard to get them together.

Well, it made my craplist, so it must count.  ;)

That's why I said a fictional scenario. I"m well aware of scattered-ness of the Axis powers. At least KM and RM are on same continent... IJN is stuck on the other side of the globe, lol.

Well, if we're going to have a global mission such as suggested by @MaxVladimus, the RM could join in too. 

Gibraltar be dammed!  :cap_rambo:

I hope so. I love my Scharnhorst and Ultimate Frontier was the only scenario I could drive him. We all know what a pain that has been recently.

Channel Dash gets it done. Run it from either perspective. If you are RN attacking the full DKM task force (Scharnhorst, Gneisenau, Prinz Eugen, Liebericht Mass, Gaede, T22 and whatever else you can think of including e-boats with continuous full fighter cover) with nothing larger than a few destroyers or a small (Arethusa class) light cuiser and some weak air support, it is a lot tougher, even against bots, than first appears. For the RN the goal is to sink all three big ships, otherwise the mission is a fail. For the DKM getting through the minefields and holding off the RN and the RAF without the big ships getting sunk is the goal. Not easy for either side, and a tough one for the devs to set up even using the Dunkirk map as I mention in a previous post.

Yeah IJN is my most used nation and Germany is my second most used nation. An exclusive Scenerio for them would be very nice..

Do Savo, Cape Esperance, Guadalcanal I and Guadalcanal II, Vella Gulf, Cape St George and Empress Augusta Bay as a campaign playable by either side, or as combat missions or scenarios exclusive to the IJN, USN, RAN and RNZN (Leander was manned by Kiwis, Hobart was RAN, sister to Perth). Not simple but possible IMHO.
