Normally I don't care about advertising my videos and this week was going to be a normal 3 upload week but something extraordinary happened. Over the weekend on Saturday night, my operation division encountered a few rather interesting, crazy, incredible games in Cherry Blossom. The replays for the last game are ready and I assure you, you will want to see them, but I will be starting with a couple more tame videos to start the week. As such, this week is changing to 7 videos with one upload a day and the first video I uploaded yesterday is a solid game in a Cleveland run by myself in a 6 ship division. The replays for the crazy game will be uploaded Tuesday through Saturday. Here is the Cleveland game for everyone interested.

Before anyone starts accusing me of getting Cherry Blossom nerfed, the replays for Tuesday to Saturday having nothing normal about them, and I myself have no interest in getting this operation nerfed either.

By "nerfed", do you mean "bots made easier, stupider and more killable", or do you mean having the enjoyment nerfed by making them super-competent and bringers of fire with every minor graze of HE secondary shells?

Nerfed as in enjoyment nerfed, i.e. what happened to what others are now calling the "Ultimate FU" or the rewards being decreased as in what has happened to Narai.

Don't mean to burst your bubble but I don't see anything outstanding about the game, aside from those idiots who held back at the last stage and that moron who kept telling you to get back, it is a pretty standard Cherry Blossom game.

That wasn't one of the weird games.

Unless you count 10 kills in a Cleveland as weird, which it kinda is.

Did you read what I wrote in my first post? This game isn't one of the special ones. Those will be uploaded Tuesday to Saturday.

Idiots? Moron? I know, being a co-op player, some of the nuances of team play may escape you so I'll help you out.

Those idiots hanging back? Yeah, those "idiots" were heavily damaged. One of the secondary objectives is to have 4 ships survive. Translated, that's worth a star, and more importantly for us, higher XP payout. Those idiots were making sure we secured that star. Yes I said "we", I was driving a Kutuzov in that match.

 Coward, the player you call a moron for telling people to get back? Yeah, that's the guy that takes a Fubuki into Aegis solo and racks up 270k+. That "moron" has had 6 of us in awe watching him work on multiple occasion. BTW, he carries a 57% w/r in randoms, solo, as well. Yeah, moron he's not.

 You're not impressed because you don't understand what our objectives are when we load into an Op.

1) Win

2) Secure every star

3) Farm every possible point of XP

4) Get bragging rights

5) Have a bunch of fun while doing the above 4. We pick on each other, distract each other, make fun of each other, and do our best to be the best player in the match.. every. single. time.

Light's match is more impressive than any solo match could be. He did it while competing against 5 players who are capable of dropping 200k matches at any time. Some of those 5 do it regularly, in multiple ship types, while competing against each other. There were no weak links needing carried on that team.

 

Oh, and if its a pretty standard Cherry Blossom game, feel free to post up your long list of +200k matches.. in any mode.

 

I want to add one more thing. Our Ops group isn't a bunch of elitists excluding anyone or looking to make ourselves look great. The offer is made regularly for anyone who wants to join for a session to let Light know. We've helped a lot of players get their stars in Ops. We honestly enjoy the teamwork and camaraderie of all of us being on comms. Ops is a great way to have fun and we're always happy to help.

Just a note to Ares1967 post, he is talking about operations games for the damage numbers, just for clarification. All this discussion has been about operations, but I don't want anyone making a mistake otherwise.

 Yeah, sorry. I was a bit annoyed when my friends are doing exactly what they should be and get called morons and idiots.

Not a big deal, just making sure there are no ambiguities in regards to what is being talked about.

I was using Baltimore, averaging at least 135k (sometimes upwards of 150k and even 200k) with at least 5 kills. Cherry blossom is insane fun for me, especially with Balti, which I consider to be tied with Atago and Kutusov for best t8 cruiser. I love cherry blossom so much.

Hey, they let me play.  That should be sufficient testimony.

Really sad I missed Saturday, guys.

This man is clearly wrong! Cherry Blossom is really boring and stupid! No fun at all! Everyone hates it! No need for changes!

Yes, I called it and you guys were idiots.  The heal circle heals extremely fast in Cherry Blossom, and what on earth are you guys doing getting so heavily damaged anyway.  The video poster even tanked for you guys by running into the illumination bomb.  Normally, the team should do the 1st part, have a quick dip in the healing circle to heal up, then go in and kill everything.  

And who is the moron who kept calling the video poster to retreat anyway?  He's the only one doing it the right way.  If you guys have went it, the scenario will be over even quicker and you can start a new one.

 The expert speaks again.

We maximize XP and fun by killing every possible ship in a single run through. While you're picking up 1000ish XP our 6 man teams are averaging 2k each. Then we can move to the next op. We don't have to wait for the ops to rotate through, we do them all whenever we want.

Carry on.

I"d suggest that he come prove it, but I'm not sure how much fun that would be...

Originally it was a discord for a specific group and had maybe 10 people on it before I joined it. It sort of evolved into use for the operations division, and the owners have not had any objections so far, so short answer is yes.
