How are you doing with the current in-game event "Snowflakes" ?

Patch 0.7.12 introduced the Snowflakes event to earn coal and steel from certain tech-tree ships and all premium vessels with a snowflake symbol.

Melting these snowflakes and earning coal/steel involves taking these ships into any battle mode and doing your part to win the battle for your team.

Operation Snowflake, what is your situation report?

For more information about Operation Snowflake, read about it here!

I have most of my snowflakes blown off except for a few, and those are for ships that it's really not worth the 100 or so coal.

Done..thank you WG! The question now if this should be a recurring event or not.

It was really a great idea, and I finished them all. Thanks, WG.

Thanks for the snowflakes!  Hope you add hears, Easter eggs, fireworks, pumpkins, and Turkeys over the years!

I havent (yet?) rebought ships to knock their snowflakes off... not sure I want to endure that pain :-p

 

Nice picture of HMAS Sydney. Australians are not used to operating in the snow...

Not done yet... Still have T5 and some lower tier premiums to do.  I did end up buying the Salem with some of the coal.  I had enough before, but I figured why not.

Somewhere around 140 ships, done early on in the beginning, took about 22-24 game-time in co-op (with the odd break for food and such). Thanks for the Steel, and Coal! Next up some Steel for Easter? :Smile_great: We could have a chase-the-bunny-off event. :Smile_teethhappy:

175 Snowflake qualified ships, all of which are done

over 91,000 coal from snowflakes

over 4,600 steel from snowflakes

I will get a total of 10,540 steel from the PEF missions and campaigns when I finish them. (Yay! coal and steel bonus clan buildings) So I will have picked up around 15,160 steel at the end of it all. I would guess I'm in that 0.4% of the player base WG talked about. 

 

I was able to get these three ships with the coal I got.

I got Flint with the Steel I got already and will have a good head start on Black with the rest when I finish the Missions.

I was pleased.  With the snowflakes and 1st mini ranked I was able to get enough coals for my JB.  Very content.

All done unless I get a premium ship in a supercontainer between now and 0.8.0; there are some ships I could buy back, but my credits are low enough that it's not worth it for me to buy ships whose coal value I could get from a single daily container.

Thanks to this event, I got Salem a lot earlier than I expected to - just in time to be able to afford cheap modules for her.

I started the event with around 170 eligible ships.  I have acquired a few since then.

I currently have 109 Snowflakes that need removal.

I’m only half done, can we extend it into the next Patch?

You still have until the latter half of the month before the next patch (0.8.0) floats.

The Snowflakes will remain on ships until you melt them until then!

Patch 7.12 dropped on Dec 19th and is five weeks long. So patch 8.0 is expected to drop on Jan 23rd.

CV's - done

DD's - done

BB's and CA/L - whatever I have left tiers 8-10, which is most ships

With a newly acquired Cambelton, Yubari, Charlestown, and Jean Bart to do now. And Mogami when I get the credits. And seeing as I had dubloons, and there was a port slot sale, any ships I rebuy cause I had to shell ones like Kongo for space. So I'd say maybe 3/4 through my now 144 total ships?

now that I'm finally done with the two campaigns I think I'm just going to start at the left side of the screen, co-op battle my way through until I'm at the right hand side.  200 something ships though, still will take awhile.  I've been focusing on the ones that give steel mainly.

With over 200 ships in my port it took quite awhile even doing most of them in co-op but I got it done.
