She's alright for it, but Pensacola is actually much better for the operation.  With all the Cruiser targets around, Pensacola's 203mm AP really does a good number.


But yes, if you need to grind Big D, the op is a good spot for her.

I take it you are paying the op-order penalty in credits or doubloons in order to get back into the battle sooner, thereby spending credits to grind XP. And fair enough - a five star victory should still be turning you a profit, so win-win.

I have played the Helena in PTS ops and her firepower is awesome; I should get her, but I suspect a mission to win the results of the design-a-camo contest is coming soon, and I wouldn't at all mind having the camo in port before the ship arrives (a similar thing has already happened with the Baltimore).

Indeed it is, I've been using my Diet Pensacola and my Dunkerque in it for a few rounds each day. Great for the XP and the credits.

This is the place to grind Dallas.

Nice win streak.

I was able to string together 4 games yesterday averaging between 160 to 200k damage. What have you been averaging?

It just seem to be the perfect boat for this particular OP, I personally prefer the faster ROF over the Pensa.

Nah, play like a Leander, use only AP:cap_haloween: Leander is a great ship for the OP is well.

There has been an unusual high concentration of DERPS playing this OP this morning. :Smile_ohmy:

A first for me playing this specific OP was BOTH Wave 1 AND Wave 2 had 3 BB's in each. Wave 1 had: 1 DD, Myoko, 3 BB's.Wave 2 had: 3 BB's, 2 Kumas, 1 Furutaka.

It was as if WG said, "Good morning ARandomClaymore! :fish_cute_2: We see that you are online and play to win. To make sure that doesn't happen, here are the worst 6 players we can team you with, in regards to our stellar MM calculations. One player we know, will go north and trip the 2nd wave early for no good reason. Also, we figured we'd go ahead and provide your 1 CV, 1 DD, 1 BB, 4 CA team with those 6 BB's to deal with in the first 3 minutes of battle as a reward for clicking "Battle" when you did. Good luck." :fish_haloween:

5 of the 6 BB's were killed, however, they took everyone except for me and the CV with them. I was done in by the 6th at over 12km away where it was still on the backside of the islands we have to pass through in order to engage the escort fleet. I was my T4 BB was that laser accurate.

One of the smoothest OP's to play, and that team, man ...C.O.C. prevents me from using better descriptive adjectives. :Smile_facepalm:

But not to derail your thread, yes, I too have been playing the Dallas in OP's to work my way up to the Helena.

A non-Unicorn's experience with the Dallas in Operations:

Dallas AP gets more kills for me, but HE gets more damage. I have played both exclusively in many games. I get more wins when I use AP (except for DDs). Yes, this 1944 model has been a consistent 42% player since CBT (Operations is higher). I play the current Operations or Ranked for an hour ever night, and then another hour of Random, usually solo because I don't want my low WR to drag down a division of my clanmates.
