So I tried Extreme Difficulty in Co-op today

I noticed today that the Honor side was upped to Extreme Difficulty this morning so I'd thought I give it a try to see how long it would take to get the required 3000 points to complete it. 

The answer is 63 games.

Now I ran most of my Premium ship I have along with some of my favorite regulars like Cleveland, Bismark etc.

In the end my ships ran from Tier 5 right up to Tier 10 and I only played each once unless our team lost (there was 4 or 5 of those) Once I played all my ships I was still about 700 points short so I played the final games repeating my Salem. If your wondering how long it took I started around 7:30 Am and finished around 9:40 Pm but I took about 4 hours off for lunch, dinner and waiting while a service guy was taking care of something in the house.

Will I do it again, probably not

Been with Glory, but have no idea about points and such. Definitely not playing 10-15 games, much less as many as in your experiment.

Wow a lot of games.

I always play the side with normal level reward. 

I can only do about 15 games in evening so 500 point is doable (for me)

This exactly.  I don't have the time to grind thousands of points.  I will earn 300 - 500 points per day and wait to see what I can cash in the "whatever money" for.

No retired, I just thought I'd give it a try and it was cold and raining outside. The bonus was with the 200% win bonus I earned over 180,000 Captain XP and maxed out another 19 point Captain

I did marathons like that while doing the Halsey campaign.

If I only had the time, I would do this. Perhaps not all in co-op, especially on 200% win days, but my Salem would get a lot of use. (I love that ship. Best use of coal ever.)

OP and any of you that have played that much in a day, you are all madmen.  I haven't hit half that number.

Nah they just enjoy what they are doing.  I used to be like that back in my Everquest Raiding/XP marathon session  years.  Fortunately I have a new focus now.  I might hit 20 battles a week.  Emphasis being on might.

I meant madmen as in doing something awesome that is beyond me.

On normal difficulty, you can finish up the 500 points in 5-6 Aegis ops. 

I have no intention of grinding a bunch of games for this event, the only reason I'll get the ship is due to buying a 7 crate pack at the beginning.

I get very focused on goals and Halsey was a goal I REALLY wanted so I was relentless at it. Don't think I did 60+ games any day but it took me 17 days to get him and it took 392 games which is an average of 23. A few days I barely did any and other days I went nuts.  I think the most games in a day I have ever done was 71 as I recall. It is too much but sometimes you get in the zone and just keep going LOL.
