So, Stage 3 of FSW started this morning and one task is 20 Cap, Asst Cap, or D Cap ribbons. Ok, not that bad and doable. So load up a DD with some credit flags to also work toward the 3 Million Credit DD task, 10 Million general credit task, the 1 Million general damage task, etc... Basically going for the cap stuff but working on the other tasks at the same time.

However, it was standard mode after standard mode (1st 4 were standard as I recall). I saw more standard mode in the 1st handful of games looking for those cap/d-cap ribbons than I normally do in a day; no a week! Had to play 3 or 4 standard to get 1 domination. Happens every time (feels like it anyway) a task comes out for cap/d-cap ribbons = they ramp up standard mode.

And of course once I finished that task the FIRST game out of the shoot was Domination. :Smile_facepalm:

The problem is, you're purposely trying to complete specific tasks.

I just play, and complete what I complete.

That way, the system can't figure out what I'm trying to do, and isn't able to throw a spanner in the works! :Smile_veryhappy:

Going to agree to the point of adopting the tin hat and crying 'conspiracy theory!'. I noticed it in the last missions to do with capping - my first 4 games nothing then very few followed that evening.

Of course completed it in the end, but when most games seemingly having some form of capture, ones without tend to stick in your mind (especially if required for a mission). :cap_hmm:

Kind of like needing torp hits and having the first of 6 detonate the 75% health bb?

WG or life is trolling you.  Hard to know which one.

Yup. I did need to get the last of the 25K XP on a DD for the second directive, so I queued up in Shinonome. The system did try, but putting me as bottom tier with a T8 and T6 CV on each time wasn't enough to stop me from getting 2 solo caps and a few torp hits, so I'm done with that one.

All I need to move on to the 3rd directive is 650 XP on a cruiser. Piece o' cake.

What I hate is that whatever the mission requires (1,000,000 xp, 100,000 fire damage, 3,000,000 credits etc.), I ALWAYS end up finishing a game less than 100 units of whatever it is from completing it.  I actually completed the War-Chester legendary a few days ago by getting 4 base xp.  I ended a game having 39996!!   Seems to happen every time like that, no matter what the mission is.

That's your problem; you allowed yourself to become obsessed with getting the cap stuff done, while you could have just forgotten about it and known you were working on the other stuff until a Domination battle arrives.

Now if it were a gateway mission, I'd be in full agreement with you. However, it's still possible to get multiple decapping ribbons in a standard battle if the circumstances are right.

Line breaks meant that I read this, and I thought OMG, WTH, they made a legendary mod for a Tier 2 cruiser? (What would it be called? "Guns actually do something"?)

*sigh of relief, with a tinge of disappointment.*

 

And yes, I also have finished  battles only to find I was hair-tearingly short of my goal. So I go out for a casual co-op game and I end up having an epic slugfest which would have cleared the goal easilyl if only I'd played it one battle earlier.

I had the other end of the luck spectrum: Got the 20 defended ribbons in two battles, nine in the first and 20 (yes, twenty) in the second.

I was able to do it in just 3 games. The issue was getting domination mode so I could LOL. Capping and defense ribbons in standard mode in Co-op are extremely rare.

I know. I just had domination mode in my battles, and lots of green team bots. They died quick, and that thinned out the multiple shooters, allowing the reds to make some cap progress between my shots. (Cleveland. Wait for reload. Count to 3. Fire. Defended ribbon every time. Rinse and repeat.)

I kind of know the feeling. For me today, it was trying to scrape up enough catapult fighter kills using my Seattle in co-op. I kept getting matches full of enemy cruisers that don't use catapult fighters, or getting the timing wrong for when to get near them as they launched. Eventually MM gave me enough enemy Ibukis to get the task done. Don't know for sure why, but I seem to have a much easier time catching Ibukis with planes in the air than other cruisers. Got the task done, and finished the cruiser credit earning task in operations. Got my latest installment of space camos, and in a happy coincidence, ended up with enough coal stockpiled to get Salem finally, so I'm pleased as punch now.
