PSA: The 15 random win mission is a priority over the ranked grind on the PT because that mission (eventually) results in a free T6 premium.

After grinding out 10 ranked battles I was wondering what was the point of the 15 random battle mission (because even though I initially read all the PT notes I didn't completely duplicate the mission).

So after going back & rereading the PT motes I realized that in order to get the free T6 premium ship you need to finish all 3 of the 15 random battle missions...so putting it off to concentrate on the ranked grind is a mistake (of course I guess that depends on if the signals you win for the ranked grind are more important to you than a free T6 premium or doubloon equivalent if you have all the T6 premiums).

As the mission in game on the PT doesn't clarify that it is a mandatory step for receiving the T6 premium this is just a reminder to those that may have also read it but not quite duplicated it & a clarifier for those that didn't read it.

What ranked grind on the PT? :Smile-_tongue: I ignored that but have to get to it tomorrow as I still need seven wins.

Unless you plan on getting those wins in the morning, best do them tonight. End: Mon. May 13 8:30 AM PT

Ah, crap, I thought I had until the Tuesday reset. I will give it a go but if the wins don't come quickly I will quit and no premium ship for me.

Shouldn't be too bad to get 7, they go fast.

Good luck.

Not the way they came over the last few days, two or three ugly and long losses for every win.

Woot, I went 7 of 8 to finish.

Edit: I just realized it is 3:00AM. It is a good thing I am retired so do not have to get up in the morning. I actually enjoy getting up at the crack of noon. :Smile_izmena:

The ranked battles don't count towards the premium ship...they are just good for 5 each of the 5 draconic flags...the mission to win 15 random battles is required to get the premium ship (there's a 15 random win mission for 8.4 & there will be 2 more...1 for 8.5 & 1 for 8.6...you need to finish all 3 to get the premium ship in a couple months).

The good news is that the 8.4 mission didn't need to be done by tonight but will also be available in part 2 of the 8.4 PT (as the ones for the 8.5 & 8.6 PT will also allow you to finish them over both parts). At least that's the way it "seems" to be worded in the update article.

I totally missed that I could earn a premium ship by participating in the PT.  It has always been a few flags and a day of premium time, before...usually not worth the time investment.

Which premium ships can be earned?

*Edit - just read the article on the Portal.  Well, crap.  Phase 1 ended today, so too late for me.

There is still phase 2, but you'll have to bust a gut to do it.

Lather, rinse, repeat for 0.8.5 and 0.8.6 PTS.

Regular.

They randomly select a T6 premium from among those you don't have. If you have them all, it will randomly select one and give you full doubloon compensation.

Any idea if our progress carries over between phases? I got 7 of 15 yesterday before real life called me back.

It should. The requirement is simply 15 wins in this PTS round, and says nothing about which phase you achieve it in. 

I should really put the live server aside for phase 2; I've got enough tokens for one camo and a bunch of crates, and while two would have been nice it should be interesting to see if I can get a couple of free unlocks again.
