I ran Aegis 3 times today. All 3 times we lost ships to the enemy vanguard. One match we lost 4 ships before we could engage the escort ships. Luckily we were able to salvage victories. I am puzzled by this. Aegis is one of the two easiest ops. I'm not too surprised because in Killer Whale, the other easy op, players seemed to have a lot of trouble. The only change is replacing CV's with BB's.

No, I do not believe it is because of Christmas vacation.

people trying to blow snowflakes off ships?  Possibly under-equipped ships without skilled captains, commanded by semi-interested players who never liked that ship very much anyhow?

I also seen this in Killer Whale. Of course the RN mission were going on then. You may be on to something.

Is Aegis the mission of the week now?  Are you running with random teams?  If so, question answered.

Even with random teams it is highly unusual to loose 4 ships before the escort ships are engaged in battle.

Depends some on the torp load of the vanguard.  Four or more DDs and you're in trouble.

The second wave can be nasty, too, focusing and burning down a BB.

Throw in a couple of potatoes and you have soup.

Get a friend who is at least mildly competent in Independence or Ryujo, div up, and have them spot and attack cruisers and battleships.

No air opposition so easy peasy, except for the dirtbag ankle biter Aobas and Myokos and their DFAA.

As far as I’m concerned bots don’t suffer from not being able to shoot any planes down during an attack, and thus don’t deserve to be able to use DFAA.

Biggest problem I had doing that in Killer Whale were players who either didn’t know what to do or didn’t care and just wanted to farm damage. Several of my games last time KW came up were only won bacause my carrier and 1-2 other often nearly dead ships made it to the exit point, and enough of the incompetents died to trigger the win.

The playerbase is often exceptionally stupid. Until there's a 50% WR lock on the operations, expect more of the same.

I find Aegis is one which can be reasonably hard carried.

While I haven't played it post CV nerf previously there are quite a few ships where you want a team of potatoes to farm more damage/xp....

This. And seeing as how Xmas break has started in a lot of places, yes, that's part of it. Why anyone would want to take the time to do an OP to blow off a snowflake is beyond me, Most are doing it in co-op. I know I am.

 

Also, adding question marks doesn't make your "question" any more valid. One question mark only, Vasili.

By the time I get to my t6s I'm going to go insane playing so much in coop!

I'm working my way backwards from T10. I figure I'll go full space cadet with co-op right about the time I hit the tiers where I'm virtually assured of winning in PvP. xD

 

Though oddly, T9 is one of my higher WR's.
