I might get the US segment done before by normal bedtime and I got off work at 530am, home by 6, and only started around an hour ago at 630 lolshot-19_01.09_07_38.02-0409.thumb.jpg.2279ebfa5359c5e0d9855b73d91184ac.jpg

Gonna be a slew of P.E.F.s out on the waters today, no doubt.

I don't know about today...I'm sure there will be a few grind hards that get it done today.  I would expect to see a lot of them tomorrow, however.  They will start showing themselves in Ranked Sprint, too (unfortunately).

Suddenly glad I wrapped up Ranked Sprint a couple days ago.  P.E.F., while no all-star, isn't a horrendous ship.  She just isn't a particularly good one, especially for any competitive gameplay.

Actually, the folks that bought them will be grinding 5 nations at once. So yeah, you'll see a lot of them. Then they need to grind 4M credits in another nation.

The real PEFocalypse will be when the 'grinders' start getting their ships in a couple days and start beating out the steel and campaign missions. The collections should all be complete by now, so it's just those two.

The Queue times are going to be insane.

It sure seems to, LOL - what flags/camo were you running, and how does the ship cope overall? Any particular tricks to it?

I finished it all in Co-op today. 6 games in Missouri did the US and then 16 in PEF with flags and camo to boost credits finished off the other 5. Glad it is over. The ship is painful to play. Should have only been 15 games in PEF but was just 2,000 credits short of doing it. Had to play #16 for 2,000 credits. LOL. :Smile_veryhappy::Smile_facepalm:

Odd; I quite like her in co-op. I agree she struggles terribly if bottom-tier in Randoms, but bots in co-op are dumb enough that I can manage a contribution even if there are T8 battlewagons around.

That 2000 credits, though... I feel your pain. Those games when you're just a handful of credits away from a task... or from the next/last container? If I'm just a few XP away from a crate or something like that with no tier restrictions, I'll sometimes jump in the Black Swan or the Tachibana. But 2000 credits? Drop in a German captain with BFT and AFT, sail your PEF on a five-waypoint autopilot course into the enemy cap, and go make a cup of your favourite beverage...

Gamescom camo with as many credit boosting flags as I could muster on top of the repair and fire reduction flag. She does fine if you know where to go and can predict the bot torp drops. Just wreck face and keep firing.

16 games with PEF is cruel and unusual punishment. So far, 6 randoms for 3M credits. If I hold to form, 2 more PEF battles before it's a Port Queen.

Thanks for the reminder.

Time to crank up Molotov for a citadel fest. That should net a couple of credits.

I did the whole Nerves of Steel thing in Co-op too. That was 67 games with it. THAT was true torture.

The Base XP part was the worst. Once you get past that and can use flags/camo to help it is not as bad. But that Base XP part had me ready to jump off a bridge or something. Not a fan of the ship either.

What is the argument against doing it in randoms where rewards are greater?

I imagine coop matches last a shorter period. You might be able to get enough in to equal whatd you get in random, maybe.

Same idea in hearthstone, where players play aggro decks just to quickly move up the ladder.
