.Haven't played at all since the marathon started and won't be able to until next week. May try a mad dash to get all the stages done in 10 days or so.

Finished Stage 2 fairly easily with Myoko and Shiratsuyu. 

The only task I had to focus on so far was Stage 1, Part 1 ... was surprised to see how fast a Leander can knock down planes ... got 6 in one CoOp game.

I finished the first two stages rather quickly; it wasn't that hard either. I was lucky 22 planes came for my Cleveland instead of someone else. I also fell in love with ARP Takao again during the second stage.

I'm now waiting for the next stage to commence, which is going to start tomorrow evening for me (what a perfect time).

I decided to grind IRL and just buy Exeter. I was low on the signals in the bundle so I thought "why not".

That said, I am still chipping away at the missions, getting a copy of Exeter would be nice for the doubloons.

I did for the same reason, after playing it...…. I personally don't think the grind is worth the effort.

Ths grind is relatively easy. Most of the objectives are all easily achievable in co-op.

Or... I guess it depends on what ships you have available. The fourth stage will be difficult for me as I don't have a suitable UK BB.

Its cheap compared to doing the grind, I mean where am I suppose to shot down planes in Co-op with no bot CV.

On my alt account, I did stage 2 with ARP Ashigara and ARP Takao.  On my main account it was easier, Kamikaze R for torp hits (with some Shinonome thrown in for good measure) and my 4 ARP Myoko clones for everything else.  EU...that was hard.  I didn't have any IJN ships, so I ground out the Furutaka and Aoba.  The cap defense was hard, I kept getting standard battles over and over.  Floods/Fires was easy in co-op.  Also, since the buff...Furutaka is legit overpowered.

I had fun torpedoing BBs point-blank-range with Furutaka in Co-op. The ARP ships made the XP mission a whole lot easier. I eventually had to use free XP to buy Minekaze to get the flooding part of the mission finished more quickly, though.

 All done and waiting for the next set of missions.  I don't find the missions to be all that tedious...although finding planes to shoot down took a bit of doing.  Then, when I only needed a few more, I had a monster game in AA-spec Nicholas and shot down a few dozen.

I'm playing anyway...may as well get a free ship while I'm at it! :Smile_medal:

Mostly pretty easy but getting out a few ships that I haven't played in a while was a bit challenging.

For me it was much easier and quicker to do in randoms. For those next achievement requirements I'm just going to take out my German BBs and start brawling. I'll either end up with devastating strikes, dreadnoughts, fireproof, close quarters, etc. It's a shame scenarios don't count since you can farm awards there too.

The mission that requires 7 achievements must be done in a British ship between tier 6 and 8, so German BB's are not an option.

I finished Week 2 missions last weekend in my Asia account. I can't be bothered grinding it in this account.

Most of the work was done with Fubuki and Hatsuharu on my end. Starting a few fires with Mogami helped.

I got the bundle, but I'm helping a friend grind for her too. We're working on part two right now, ship of choice: Furutaka. Mostly because it's the only Japanese ship he has that qualifies. He's enjoying it a lot though.

On track - Air missions in Part 1 were partly fulfilled in Randoms (a loss, but a hard-fought one, in my Baltimore), and Japanese-ship missions were all done on the last day of my rec leave.

I'm going to start in co-op and consider moving to Randoms for the 100K fire damage; lighting fires on bots is no problem, but the issue can be lighting the second one for ongoing damage whilst human BB captains commonly let the first one burn out. This may actually turn out to be harder than we think it will. Anyone who turned their nose up in spite at British battleships and destroyers (and who does not have Belfast) is going to be made to rue the day.

I think the Nelson is going to get a lot of use with my 19 pointer on board, and probably the Cossack and Gallant as well. ECXP mining FTW!!! When he's out of port, my dedicated BB captain (Jack Dunkirk) can flip between Warspite and Monarch (and Nelson if the 19 pointer is 'in battle' with one of the destroyers).

the planes

 

I can't find any planes in the Tier range required, yet I get them by the dozens when I'm in the wrong ship type/tier.

The plane kill mission took me the most time to complete. I got the planes in I think 3 battles but it took a while to find 3 battles with carriers in them that were willing to send me significant numbers of planes to shoot down.

I've finished the first 2 stages doing mostly Co-op with Randoms to get the plane kills and the base xp. Waiting for the next stage now.
