No UK DD for me. Does this hurt me in Royal Navy Event?

WG's "events" are always very confusing.  I have done all the missions so far that I could do without being "given" a UK DD by just being LUCKY.  I have opened all the containers I could have opened without a UK DD, but I have not gotten any missions for a UK DD.

 

How does this affect me in the Royal Navy event? 

 

Already, I am not getting LOOT and some crates because I wasn't able to complete at least 12 missions so far that require a UK DD that you can only get by sheer LUCK.  Does this mean I will be behind when the next patch is dropped and I will have to grind them from tier 1 for the event?  I think you eventually MUST have them to complete later missions to get LOOT.  I would like to get the Warspite and Cossack.  Is that true?

No you can complete all of the phases without owning a RN DD. Yes you are behind in a sense as far as the patch. You will need to start the line from the start, but that is not a bad thing.

I did not own any RN DDs until a few days ago from the free crates awarding me Acasta and Icarus.  I say persevere and hope for getting drops.

 

Does it hurt not having any?  Kind of.  Some of the RN DD specific missions reward an extra event crate, and that's another dice roll.  Even then, some of those RN DD specific missions start having RN DD and Tier specific requirements.  I got the Tier V-VI ones, but there are some requiring Tier VII-VIII RN DDs, so even I get hosed unless I buy Cossack.  Which I absolutely refuse to do.

Like what @HazeGrayUnderway, it does not really hurt you at all, at the end, free stuffs are free and so far WG had been generous given out for FREE ....... 1 more crate could make a different, in term of gambling.

But I don't buy Cossack, already had the Gallant and happy using her. The last crate that need t7-t8 brit dd, if I open the next week 12 crates and get them by sheer luck, sweet, if not, I am happy with Icarus + Gallant

There are UN DD missions, so you will miss out on those rewards but that's all. The Cossack kicks butt in Co op and Dynamo, if you want incentive to buy it.

I got almost 48,000 Commander XP in that one.

I traded my sovereigns for crates.  It costs 60 but you get 25 back.

Got three ships that way, including Lightning.

You can complete all the Directives without a UK DD. There are 6 Missions over the 4 Directives in each Stage (week). Four of them are for T5+ UK DDs, one each Directive, and give out Draconic flags. There is a T7+ UK DD Mission in Directive III & IV that gives an RN container and a premium RN container. After 7.10 drops on October 17th, the RN containers are going to be replaced with Halloween containers. The UK DDs should be released on patch 7.10 as well.

opened lots of crates no British DD yet :(

Thanks, it's nice to know it is just not me.  WG should plan this so that if you open so many crates you automatically get at least a tier 4 or 5 UK DD.

Acasta seems to be the most common UK Early Access Mission, but yes, not everyone has it. I have opened 30 free crates and only got the Acasta.

Yeah, I have opened 25 Containers so far -- all the ones you can get for free without a British DD, plus a free container from bonus code -- and no British DD. Not even the Acasta.

At this point I'm trying to wish it into existence that the reason I have never gotten a ship of any sort in any Container I've opened is that I will eventually get a really awesome ship to reward my patience: a Kamikaze, a Belfast, a Gremyashchy or a Kutuzov. One of those. It's going to happen some day, I know it.

Stupid design. 

The rich get richer. 

If you get LUCKY and get a UK DD, then you get access to a premium container for this weeks directive, but not me.  I only got 3 normal containers.

stupid, Stupid, STUPID, STUPID! design to this event.  

If you don't get LUCKY, then you get SCREWED.   

Thanks for SCREWING me WG with an event based on LUCK.

Where did you get the bonus code?

dumbest thing about this event is only the tier 7 and 8 are viable to complete the special dd missions so there is no reason to play the tier 5 and 6 even if you get them.

Maybe I will get one next week or when the next directives load up. 

The next Stage starts Wed, Oct 3rd at 7am EST (4am PST) and Directive I drops at the same time. Then Directive II on Thu, Directive III on Fri and Directive IV on Saturday. So you have roughly 30 hours to complete the current Directives.

I bought the Cossack to get to the free RN containers. I can get almost all of the cash spent on it in doubloons for buying it again with Guineas.

Thanks, it worked, but no UK DD, LOL.

Oh, I am completing all of the Directives I can in one or two nights so I am long done.  That is what is frustrating.

Yes, I see that.  To get the prem cont u need a tier 7 so if you get the 5 or 6 you can't get the big one anyway, but at least you will have the tier 7 researched and ready to go when the patch drops.  I will have to start from tier 1 or whatever.

Still got at least 24 more crates, plus what you get in HoF rewards, when those get posted. Gneisenau013 said that the problem was identified, fix being put in place and people who missed the rewards being tabulated. They are estimating end of the week for the Stage 1 HoF rewards.

T2 off the Weymouth. If you don't have the 650 or so XP on the Weymouth, you might want to run a game or two in it. Or use FXP to start the line.

 

This was what was in the Wiki before patch 7.9 dropped and the wiki was scoured of a lot of UK DD info. I figure the final XP numbers will be somewhere around this. This does not include B Hulls, Fire Control and/or torp modules to grind up from stock, so you will need more than this to jump from one tier to the other.

 

T2 Medea - 650 XP

T3 Valkyrie - 2,150XP

T4 Wakeful - 6,000 XP

T5 Acasta - 11,500 XP

T6 Icarus - 36,000 XP

T7 Jervis - 65,000 XP

T8 Lightning - 112,000 XP

T9 Jutland - 165,000 XP

T10 Daring - 240,000 XP

Your only really missing out if you don't get a t7 or t8 UK dd. Otherwise the tasks can be completed w/o them.

The Directives can be complete without any UK DD. The T5+ UK DDs get you draconic flags and the T7+ UK DDs get you one RN container and one premium RN container per stage over the 12 free RN containers, but you don't need these to complete the Directives and get your Guineas for Cossack.
