You have to have a team that knows what they are doing but most teams don't. You also need to have a battleship or two, which will spawn near the base. If everyone spawns down at the foot of the map the aerodrome will be overrun before you can get up there. For the most part, you want long range, high DPM cruisers. A mix of Cls and CAs is best.  DDs are next to worthless as they can't tank damage and the bots "cheat" when torpedoed (they start maneuvering the instant your torpedoes are released even if you are undetected).

I would tell you what I really think of Ultimate F*U but I would like to be able post here again.

Yeah, sometimes you can beat it.  Other times even the Pros from Dover just say f* it and bail.

I would like to know how (or if) the devs tested the buff.  The Op used to be tough but doable.  Now it's an exercise in bad language.

Few billion? You should be broke right now.
And Frontier? Which one's that one?

You are very very wrong on this one, Snarg.  A good DD player can make all the difference.  Watch some of Lightninger's vids on this Op.

Well I usually only do the OPs for the prem time and that's it. On my normal runs, I get a lot of creds/XP for the ship I was using. Afterwards, not so much unless you got more pins.

So true, i've lived through UF in my Haida spotting for my team and taking out the CV solo. I'm not the greatest player in the world so if i can do it anyone can.

"Good" is the keyword. I've yet to see one but you are probably right. In all the games I've played, however, the DD is the first one to go.

Lightninger does know what he's doing in the Ops, a lot more than me.

All of the buffed ops now require clans. You can't get a decent PUG anymore these days.

Played it at least half a dozen times today, in both Hood and Atlanta. Complete failure every time. I just don't get it. I would usually be able to finish it, but now it's unwinnable for me. Weird. I think it definitely could be toned down a bit.

Just lost 7 in a row, tried even Battleships. Literally just came back to WoWS last week. Was pretty meh and I think I'ma leave again. It was an exercise in frustration where it used to be pure fun.

8 games tonight. Won 1 with a 3 star win, the rest were losses. Topped 100k damage in almost all of them. This is retarded. It would be playable if the bots weren't laser-accurate and didn't set you on fire every single time they hit you, but they are, they do, and they focus their fire on single targets. 

Played with you tonight I know, played with a few players on the forums. I know I hit 100k+ in all but one of my games as well. Right now it just doesn't feel doable.

Yeah, last game. Figured I'd give Scharnhorst a try and topped 100k damage but it just didn't matter. The sad part was, I died from a citadel hit from the Alabama that spawned through the stern. Just retarded.

I generally defended the Ops but I can't now. It was so fun and an escape from the Toxicity of Randoms. No longer.

Lost my first one using Fiji (had two DDs and no BBs, pretty much a forgone conclusion), but four stared the second one using a KGV that only had the range upgrade.  That said, we were extremely close to losing.  Only our CV was left and he was under fire with about half health.  I did 125k and sank Raptor as my contribution.

DDs are, in my experience, deadweight that has to be carried.  I know a good DD can contribute, but most DD players are not good enough.

I don't play Ops anymore. They used to be fun until WG "fixed" them.

Been working on upgrades for the Helena. Not doing great but I seem to be doing better than you guys are. Not good by any means though. We will see if I can do any better with the upgraded guns, the hull comes next. Then she will be better I think. She takes first place a lot even un-upgraded.

The other OPs of late aren't near as bad as this one specifically. Even humping the repair ship area is barely winnable.

However WG goes and releases Cherry Blossom op which can be rough be extremely doable as a random group, fun, rewarding and fast.

And then we go back to UF and the polish is gone replaced by bots with napalm railguns and spawns designed to make the encounter harder on top of it.

This op needs love from WG bad.

Tomorrow I will play Cherry Blossom. Shame I only have three ships that work for it but I do want to try it.

It's a fun mission. I had quite a bit of fun grinding through my Cleveland and a good chunk of Baltimore in it. Make sure to charge at the myoko's that are shelling the marines right away. If you aren't a fan of torpedos though, take some heartburn meds before playing.

I'm glad that I 5 star'd this thing before the whole crazy difficulty update.

Aren't Operations suppose to get a hard difficulty mode in future? If WG is calling what we have now for Ultimate Frontier as the normal difficulty mode... then I can't imagine what the intended hard mode would be... yikes.
