Royal Navy ARC DD mission drop rate

Since the start of the little RN ARC contest, I have received one (1, ONE, UNO) personal DD mission. 

I'm not sure why WoWS/WG would code it that way... one would "think" the thing would be to get a lot of players playing the ships so that, on the day they are taken back, people will grind their little hearts out to get 'em back. 

AFAIK or think I knew... when the tech tree kicks in, the special mission ships go away - is this correct? 

If it isn't then of course it would make complete sense to only issue one every 50 or hundred missions, right?

I've received just the T5 splatsplat boat... what all have you guys received? tiafyc

I got 1 as well.  And that’s enough to do a couple missions, but if you think it’s coded wrong then then you forgot this is a company looking to generate income.  You know who gets those missions??  People who spend money.

Well I considered it... but IF you have to give em back, why would you spend money to get them? Or - do you get to keep them but they return to just a standard ship? 

Yes, RIF.

Same exact luck.  I've opened every free container possible right now, only received the T5.  Every time they have a loot box event thing like this come up, its been consistently less and less generous.  Of course, that's not to say it is given my sample size but it does make one wonder.

 

Well, if they keep this up I don't know how many people here follow gaming news, but the days of game companies doing loot boxes may be coming to a swift end in the near future.  *Maniacal laughter*

You keep them.  They just become normal ships.

This^^

 

If you get an early access mission, the UK DD is yours to keep. Grind XP, because as soon as the full line drops, you can research the next DD if you have enough XP.

 

It also comes fully researched and purchased, so you can pick the top modules as soon as you unlock it.

I have opened every possible freely earned RN container and gotten 0 DD missions so far. And not using event tokens to buy crates in the shop, saving those for other things.

I did buy 5 RN Premium Crates for $15...but didn't get any missions out of them.  However, I did get the Acasta mission from a free crate (before I paid for 5, for you tin-hatters :Smile-_tongue:) and finished it, and this morning I got the T6 mission from a free crate.  I am hoping for more, of course, but 2/4 sure isn't bad.

I haven't dropped money for those crates, just been relying on the free RN containers from the event.  I have not gotten anything useful until today.  With 2 of the crates I got the missions for Icarus and Acasta, back to back.

Every single possible free crate: nothing.

Every sovereign plowed back into buying crates in the arsenal: nothing.

Buy two five-packs of crates in the premium shop: ding! Tier 5.

 

Jokes on me, though: Acasta sucks.

 Well I got the T5 mission out of my first 5-pack.  Since then it was nuthin', until yesterday, when I pulled 2 more out of event containers. 

  Oddly enough,  I'm not especially interested in them right now- so of course I got them when the guys who really wanted them didn't...

  Perhaps I should give them a go- the T5 PA DD is a british designed bote, and I loved it.  (FAR more than I do the Gnevny clone at tier 6...)  That lil sucker could simply trash things!   But, I'm currently already working on 2/3 other DD lines...  German, Russian and Pan Asian for sure, US maybe. (the EFF DD's!!!! bots at tier 8 really soured me on Benson.  LOVE the ship, hate playing it...)

I got the tier 5 DD mission in a group of 5 boxes I bought last weekend. I just cashed in all my sovereigns for 12 crates and on the second last one got the mission for the tier 6 Icarus.

 

Meh.

I got the T5 DD with the very first free container, and nothing since. Got all possible free containers (other than those requiring a T7+ UK DD). 

The Acasta was awful, so not sure if I really want the others...

I got two (T5,6), and although I have bought premium ships etc., I did not buy premium RN boxes.

I did, however, win the French T5 and T6 battleships as free unlocks back in February, before I ever spent a dime on this game.

Just recently got the Icarus mission.  Haven't unlocked it yet.  Not in a hurry given I already had the Gallant.  So another T6 RN DD is kind of like 'meh'.  Had I gotten the T7 Jervis or even the Lightning it would have been a higher priority.  But with several of the missions requiring a T7 or higher RN DD, the additional T6 gains me little.  But at T6 I can use it in Ops.  May try it in a few over the weekend if I have time.

Bought a few crates, cashed all the freebies; wound up with all 4 DDs, 2 from bought crates and 2 from freebies.  Total RNG, and I can appreciate why many people are frustrated.

Well then... that clears up for me why we aren't getting them very often... you get to keep them as a standard ship. I actually got my mission from the first crates i bought using the in-game, newest flavor of coinage. Nothing else since. 

As you say, grind - you can at least be ahead of the game that way. 

Thanks for sharing, folks. 

@Uncle_Lou I think people will suggest you get busy buying lottery tickets! Congrats!!!

Maybe lol!  Though to be honest the only one I have enjoyed is the Lightning.  Took the Jervis out a couple games and was totally underwhelmed.  Have not even tried Acasta and Icarus, though with their temporary "premium" status WRT captain placement I may move Capt Dunkirk around to try the t5/6 boats.  Lightning is fun, and is a quite capable little bote. 

Good luck to you and everyone else still hoping for a RN DD mission!
