WG, it's been 2 years. Time to reset operation rewards

This month is a very special month. Want to tell me why?

Spoiler

It's the two year anniversary of operations! That's right, the first four operations were officially introduced just over 2 years ago.

Many players have achieved 5 stars in all operations (both currently available and legacy). It is time to re-introduce an incentive for players to re-explore and re-discover the great world of operations. What better time to do that than 2 years after their launch? The rewards for getting 5 stars a second time don't have to be as good as for the first time. They just have to be there. What those rewards are are for you to decide, WG. In the end, however, any decision to "reset" stars won't disappoint and will be widely celebrated by the playerbase as an example of WG's generosity. In other words, much desired (and needed!) good publicity and sentiment in the aftermath of CVs and GC.

Good luck and fair seas! :cap_rambo::fish_viking: Happy hunting!

As a long time player, this demonstrates the value of the community's proposal.

The mass amount of Credits, commander, Elite and Free XP isn't enough?

5 star reward should just be a random container with some credits and an item from past Collections.

For me and you, yes. But for the majority of the community, re-juvenating operations is a great idea.

I'm all for it. Personally, I thought that they were trying to populate scenarios and Co op with the CV rework.

This is totally fine. If it's something (anything), the WoWS community will experience operations again (a plus).

Some operations are fun, some are terrible.   The fact only 1 is playable at anytime sorta ruins the concept.   Every Operation should be available to play at all times.

They are, you just have to have a team of at least 4.

What do you think about the proposal? Would it make you more likely to try out operations?

Good luck OP... I've been asking every so many months during the time that has passed. No dice. Can't say I wouldn't be pleased... but then you don't really play OPS for the rewards directly... you play it because of no TK and easy coins.

I like the idea.  Alternatively (or also) reward flags could be added for the Operation achievements (e.g. Sea Star, Natural Selection, Assistant, Tactical Expertise, etc.)  Also, if we ever get another campaign, it could include tasks for Operations-related goals like completions of ops and objectives, destructions of key ships, allied ships protected, etc.

Edit: I think the even better solution would be to make the Operations more fun so more people would want to play them.

Yes, I know the community has repeatedly asked. Given it's been 2 years, it's time to do something. This proposal isn't because players play Ops for the star rewards. It's because players should go back to Ops and see how they like it with a new perspective after (possibly) playing their last Defense of Naval Station Newport 2 years ago.

Great idea! Goes above and beyond the proposal to reset stars. Definitely support the addition of operation-related tasks for campaigns.

They don't need to be reset but rewards for later play through need to be addressed.

This would be nice. Have some small reward you can earn say once a week.

Operations are so...meh.

Only 1 tier running at a time, instead of same operation with other tiers, once you run them and get 5 stars, never a point to play again.

5 star reward is 24 hours premium? Yawn. I have almost 2 years of premium time left and even if I didn't, 24 hours is negligible.

Rarely are they even fun.....a rework with more interesting incentives would be great!

This please. I’m a sucker for crates even if full of air and dust. :cap_book:

Absolutely.  I've rarely played them since the 5 star rewards at the beginning.  Just not enough variation to hold my interest.

The developers put loads of work into Operations, it would be nice if they breathed a bit of fresh air into them to make them appealing to players who already earned 5 stars. Resetting the rewards is a good but temporary solution. I think they should change up the rewards a bit so after a 5 star win, you get random crates or something, to keep players interested in playing the mode on a long term basis. Nothing like the initial rewards of course but good enough to get the attention of the player base. They could keep the rewards as they are for whatever operations are not featured in a week but make the "Operation of the Week" pay out something like crates/coal as a reward. 

Operations are a good idea and one that should appeal to Clans and players who like to division up. It is a non competitive mode that every clan can participate in as a group and helps foster a bit of  team work. They really need to revamp the mode rewards and get groups playing it again.

I completely agree with your thoughts. Would you still support this idea (of crates/coal as a reward) if XP and credit earnings were nerfed to make it happen?

Well as a player, I am never in favor of nerfing payouts.... I may be slow but I am not stupid.. Honestly you only get BIG payouts when you use full signals and your best camo so I would say there really is no need to nerf them since it drains these resources from the game and may help drive purchases of them..
