For family reasons I'm not going to be able to dedicated a lot of time to WoWS in PvP for a few months (new baby:Smile_child:)

I'm wondering how easy it'd be to complete the campaign to get the Cossack in coop, since those are way faster and if I have to leave spontaneously I'll feel less bad. I could buy some containers too, it seems like a lot of them are easier if you get the tier 7 or 8 ones.

Also can you repeat tasks? It's not the same as the campaign system so it's not really clear.

Nope. There are 4 stages and once gone, there are no repeats. You need 50 sovereigns to get the Cossack. The maximum you can farm is 48. You need to purchase the rest. Can it be done in coop? First stage is possible in coop. Afterwards? Let me know.

You will be putting a lot of work in to complete the XP and money earning requirements, possibly as much input as PvP would require.

I appreciate that you probably want faster games that you can bail on with less guilt  if your new baby needs you (congratulations, by the way).

Missions yielding kills, caps and other such things are probably a lot easier in co-op.

There is currently 10 guineas on sale for 1 USD as a special offer (you need to log into premium shop to see it) so if you do that you only need 40/48 possible.  Its unknown what the future missions will be but on PTS and so far it mainly looks like you need to earn a certain amount of xp/credits and/or  do some 1-3 random tasks from a selection that is that number +2.  Considering you can do 1 set of missions concurrently I don't think it should be that hard.  Mostly it looks like random grind rather than RNG and achievement based stuff like some of the missions in Yamamoto/Halsey.  I would say for this set coop is not much disadvantaged except in the earning of xp/credits.  But considering the games are faster it may be easier to do the other missions than in randoms.

I did the first two stages in Co-op, and am well into the third. I have Jervis and am unlocking Acasta as I go through them all. It is possible in co-op, it just takes a little longer.

I don't get it. I've completed three stages and no DD unlock yet. Even during the US cruiser split I only unlocked Cleveland. The crates don't like me 'tall...

This 1st set of missions seems easy enough to do in Co-op. I did the 1st 2 parts of it yesterday and am now doing the 2nd 2 parts today. If the others follow suit it shouldn't be difficult. You will still need to buy some guineas though even if you earn all 48 possible as you need 50.

I'm not getting any of the T5-7 DD missions yet. (Actually I am whining about it.) I see others with tech tree UK DD so I am a bit jealous. 

As to buying the guineas, I did. There is a 10 G's for $1 dollar sale if you login to the Premium shop. I should comfortably acquire Cossack for "Just One Dollah!"

Yes, the event is able to be completed in Co-op, Random, Ranked and Arms Race. Of course Random will complete faster than co-op as the rewards are bigger. You do not need a UK DD to complete the Directives.

THIS! :Smile_great:  If you complete all 48 of the Directives (48th is available Dec 8th), you then need two more from the shop to get the advertised 96% discount. Some people are complaining it is not free, but WG NEVER said it would be free, they just didn't read. Get the 10 Guineas for $0.99 while it is in the shop. Guineas will be on sale in the shop until Jan 9th when they are converted to credits, but we do not know how long the 10 Guineas for a $1 will last.

Quietly throwing in that requirement to spend money at the end of the grind is a new twist, however, so it does go against established expectations.

You only get the Tier 5-8 DD missions in Royal Navy containers.

The drop rate for the missions is very low for premium containers, so the drop rates are probably even lower for the standard Royal Navy containers.  I have heard of a few people getting the T5 or T6 missions from a regular container, but it is rare.

Wow, thanks!  Hadn't noticed that and grabbed it immediately.

INCORRECT! WG has said that you could get Cossack for a 96% discount. Since you need two Guineas, and you can get 10 for $0.99 right NOW in the shop, everything is as advertised.

Has WG ever including this kind of spending requirement at the end of an event grind for a ship before?   Where the special currency could not be completely "earned" through gameplay?  

If not, then it's a new twist on how these things have been done in the past.  (Not a new twist on the Cossack specifically.)  

Maybe you could slow down and actually read the post you're replying to before (ironically) giving me crap about "not reading the manual".  :Smile_amazed:

From what I've read and watched, the Cossack is garbage, so maybe it's not worth worrying about.

They never said it would be free, but on a 96% discount.

I know the feeling, I have the worst luck with all crates, containers, and super containers. I keep wondering if I am going to get a SC that will take away something, that is how bad my luck is.

To the OP, I have done the first 3 stages all in co-op.  Each stage took about 1-1.5 hours each stage to do.

Where and when was this laid out?  Was it completely up-front, or in the fine print?   

If an expectation has been established by past repeated actions, something that runs counter to that past pattern can't fairly be buried in the fine print.

To me, it comes across as WG trying to get people invested in the grind only to later notice they need to spend the money. 

So maybe it is fair to tell people "buyer beware" and "always read every last detail" when it comes to dealing with WG.

:cap_haloween:LoL:cap_haloween: But it is true, on using try you luck, I have gotten nothing but Hotel Yankee Signal Flags. The only great thing I have ever gotten out of a SC was back when they still dropped Credits.

P.S. AND not I am not complaining, I am joking. You can stop with the PMs:Smile_facepalm:

I miss the 10M credit super containers. Not everyone had Millions of credits, but people who did complained so... :Smile-angry:
