Operation Dynamo Scenerio Questions

Just out of curiosity will you and your clan be attempting to cross through the main minefield like last time?  

37 members have voted

  1. 1. Will you and possibly clan try racing through the minefield?

    • Yes! Absolutely! Sounds like fun idea!
      10
    • NO! That is crazy idea are you insane!? We prefer to keep our sanity and Warships intact!

Do you need a full AA Spec Mahan or Farragut to complete the Operations? And if so out of curiosity what does the AA rating get up to on those?

Another thing I know some players were not able to previously play the original Operation Dynamo, so they were unable to get Jack Dunkirk Captain, will those players be able to get him from this? ( I enjoy my Jack Dunkirk and hope other players cN win him from this like the previous version of the Operation)

Also curious why all the changes from original, when you could just have the ships supplied to do the original Operation? Although some improvements to go along with the stronger ships we will be using will likely be fun of course.

I believe they changed the minefield to where you progressively take damage the longer you are in it until you leave or are sunk. There are no mines to detect and avoid now.

The minefield directly damages your ship now unless you go at 1/4 speed. I don't know if that speed is 'racing' or if at some point in the minefield you take damage anyways. Personally, I think this is a stupid change, and if they wanted it to be easier, they could have just reduced the density.

Ah man they took the fun of of that then, lol I got really deep not the minefield before. Niko had contest to see who could cross it safely since apparently there were hidden paths through the minefield...  or at least back then there was, level it to our beloved former community leader to keep things a fun environment.

I never got to do the original because my only internet access was through a tablet so no memories. When I did it on the PT I didn't spec for AA and I felt I did fine. This operation seems to be more about massed AA firepower than individual so I don't think it is necessary to AA spec.

I played the original Operation Dynamo probably close to 200 times. It was my first experience with a 19 point captain and because of that OP, I got enough xp to get two or three of my own 19 pointers. The mission is fun and I expect that I will be using my USN DDs who all have an AA rating of 20. The planes are all tier 1s so you don't need much AA to shoot them down, heck the Gallant did well and it has a base AA of 2 IIRC. It is a super fun mission, everyone should try it for sure but it is a real barn burner. Far more exciting than any of the other OPs IMHO. The constant plane attacks and little torpedo boats are really fun targets. Remember to manually target planes even if you don't have the skill, it concentrates your AA fire and makes a HUGE difference. As far as going into the minefield, no. It was a stupid idea to suggest that challenge back then, and is still stupid. I can not tell you how many people would just try an do it even though it required everyone to say "yes". Almost every loss I had in that mode was because of people attempting it and to offer that challenge up was just silly. If they wanted people to attempt it, they should have gotten people together as a special event and kept it out of the standard OP play. BTW when I said it was stupid, I was being nice.. The EULA prevents me from posting my real feelings.

Schnellbots...    Those pesky little buggers that are even hard for a DD to hit.

Bring em on..   I'd love to gun them down with a Farragut.

But this is a French and RN show.  The Bliskawica even helped in real life.  

So..  Blys, Gallant, and Aigle so far.

They're not T1s (except for the British planes sadly) anymore, but T5, at least from what I saw of a run by Stuntman and crew on the PTS:

Owww……..I have just 1 DD that qualifies for the operation, the Gallant that I got from last year's Christmas crates.  :Smile_sad:

I just bought the T-61 too but it is a German DD so can't be used, what a bummer.

Not sure if you are just stating the ships that you have, but it is open to any allied t6/7 destroyer (except the Pan-Asian line,) plus the Cossack:

 
Here is a cut and paste about the new Dynamo:
 

Conditions of Participation

The operation will be permanently available in World of Warships in the standard operations section. Please note that you will need to have at least Level 8 in your Service Record to take part in the operation.

The new version has an updated list of the ships you can use in the operation, which includes British, Commonwealth, French, Polish, Soviet, and American Tier VI and VII destroyers. Besides these, you can also use British Tier VIII destroyer Cossack to complete the operation.

Nice, thanks for the correction. Looks like I need to re'spec a captain or two then. Thanks for the heads up Land!

Anthony and Cyclone, the destroyers you initially were forced to use for Operation Dynamo, had AA ratings of like... 3, as I recall.

 

Mahan should be a monster, unless WG changed the aircraft.

Considering we are not using the weak original DDs, and instead using tiers 6,7, and the one tier 8 I would say assuming they changed the planes is very safe assumption.

Being of RKLES, of course I've got to try the minefield again.

You're going to want some good AA from how it went on PTS. I have the Sims I got in a package last summer that I've never really played. Thinking I'll outfit that, drop in my AA spec 19 point BB commander (yes, aside from having EM instead of LS the skills are the same) and go terrorize the channel.

The minefield run is sadly no longer possible. You might be able to crawl through at 1/4 speed, but dodging mines is no longer possible.

Max AA on Mahan with skills and signal is 40.  Didn't try Farragut.  [Gnevny is half that.  Minsk supposedly somewhat better than Gnevny.]

What would be the point?  Just the thrill of Russian roulette?

The purpose of the mission is to move soldiers.  Seems that you'd do that better by protecting the convoy than by trying to do two runs yourself.

But,....   But....  But....    

The USSR was on the OTHER SIDE during Dunkirk....  Germany and Italy were building ships for the USSR.

Oh whatever...  It's a game.

In any case, I'm up to T8 in all three RU lines.  The Ognevoi and Kiev would have been fun..  but NoOOooOOooooOooo...

Guess I'm stuck with the Leningrad on that tier.

I foresee a big sale on the Sims coming up.

And the first time Dynamo came around, we were 'loaned' two 19 point captains.

And I have the Farragut with New Years Camo.  Mahan..  I sold.  

I've also got the Sims.  As long as I don't have to escort an oiler (Neosho), I'm good.

Sounds like Niko may have had a hand in it before as added fun event challenge for us...

Jack dubkirk can be had by completing the collection. I used coal to get the collection complete just for Jack. But The new rewards will not give you Jack.

I used Mahan w/BFT & AFT on commander & signal flag...no upgrades went towards AA (used them on guns for taking out the torp boats) & 5 starred it 1st time...everybody (except Parks) survived...but had an exceptional team that literally smoked whole convoy from start to finish (exceptional part: Not 1 word in chat was said about to coordinate it...we all just took turns doing it naturally...if it was the regular server I would have comped the entire team).

Because I was in US DD I ran ahead & shot down planes & then smoked a line back to convoy after plane wave was gone...then headed forward again for planes & smoked on way back (rinse & repeat).

Dunkirk's brother was available in Arsenal for guineas (or the other new currency available in the Brit containers...forget which for sure right now). Forget name also but same skill perks as Jack...assuming it will be the same on regular server.

As for the ships they let us use last time this won't be a 1 time thing but will be going into the operations rotation so the reason for regular ships is so people don't just run it the 1 time for rewards & stop running it as those ships wouldn't advance you on your tree grinds (& they won't be giving you a 19 point commander either so they wouldn't even be good for grinding free XP unless you already have a 19 pointer (which many do but a lot don't).
