The Helena is going out to play!

I was unsure between going USN & leveling US BB line or going IJN & leveling CA line but now that you mention it I'm just gonna play in my Helena; I love that ship.

So does it work that every 10 points you earn is 2 containers or is the limit that you can only get 2 containers max for getting 10 points? Or does it scale differently but you can get more than 2 containers?

Curious about this too -- stacking would be great, however, just making it 2 containers regardless points, not very good.   A container every 10 points would be sweet though.

Is it just a small chance to get the premium cv or is their one in the box

If everyone picks USN, everyone ends up getting 4 containers :D   #GameTheGame

This looks like a little extra bonus love for the mid tier ships -  Thank you WG !  These are the most fun to play these days - too much t10 burnout events, and cancerous ships like slava, Colbert and Smolensk are ruining high tier play ... 

I appreciate a couple free containers with a chance of a premium CV  :)

 

The only issue i see is that the 750xp USA objectives vs the 1250 Japanese objectives will likely assure that most will pick the USN line for ease of qualification despite the rich rewards potential of the Japanese Premiums -

 

I appreciate these events WG, and please take the following constructively as it is meant. 

If you want these to NOT be one sided roll stomps - make those 3 premiums a random draw amongst all players on the winning side that earn 10+ objective points.  There are an extremely small number of players in this game with no life that grind these kinds of things and most mortals have zero chance of getting close to top 3 in points despite playing many hours ourselves - I say this with over 10k game in various play modes under my belt.

- To make it fair to the hardcore  grinders - Add 1 draw entry for every 10 objective points. 

- So personally, I will pick the easy USN objectives that I can achieve even in most losses,  because there is not enough incentive to suffer the extra 500 basexp requirement of the IJN

(the extra objective point & 3 extra camo doesn't cut it) 

It takes a team effort to win - and all should share the spoils of victory. 

IMHO

 

Good Hunting, 

Kar

If you get 10+ points, you get 2 containers. 

If you get 10+ points and your team wins, then you get two MORE containers for a total of 4 containers.

Looks like a co-op spam event to me, it's still one point per win, and you can do them more than twice as fast as PvP matches. Plus, is 750 base XP common at T7? If so, slam dunk USN wins.

My only concern is who would be playing IJN ships T4-7...oh wait...that includes Kuma, Minekaze, and Kamikaze R. 

Welp...may his Excellency reign supreme in these future battles!

Yeah I see the same problem here. With this disparity most people will go USN. More players = more points, so USN will win and USN players will get four containers for earning 10 points. IJN players will only get two containers for 10 points. 

Seeing this, even those players normally inclined to play IJN will play USN instead, making the problem worse.  WG apparently expects that there is a higher-skilled (1,250+ xp/game) IJN fanatic player base that will carry with its 2 points/game instead of 1 point per game, but I'm not sure what makes them think this group exists and will play this way.

As questioned in the Crysantos/Conway/Shonai Twitch stream.

Will the ARP, HSF Harakaze, South Dragon & East Dragon ships count in the IJN Fleet?

HSF Harakaze is definitely IJN.  I have one. At Tier 8, it is not eligible for this event.

It is my understanding that the others also count as IJN.

Not really...if you spam a fast firing cruiser like Atlanta you can get it sometimes but it depends on how many other fast firing cruisers are on your team doing the same thing.

You say +1...but his comment you quoted didn't have a +1 until I +1ed it...don't be a tease now :-)

is the xp per battle or cumulative?

At 1st I thought per battle...but your question made me realize that usually they clarify "per battle" when it's per battle...but then I realized that between the 2 ways to get points it says, "__________ base XP in battle" (not plural) & "win battles" (plural) which leads me to believe that the base XP requirement is per battle.

Usually during these types of "Unfortunately...no leaderboard" events there isn't even a way to keep track of how many qualifying battles you have during the competition so it would be nice if there was a clarifier before it started.

I would assume the per battle but you might wanna keep separate tally sheets anyway.

Boy, this will be exciting, can't wait for tomorrow then. Not just for Premium ships, but more because of the event itself hehe. Though, just a question, so once it starts tomorrow on the 21rst, and I join a co-op battle; completing the missions earning base XP etc, are they repeatable? I would assume so if you have to score 10 or above, but still want to be sure. And how would one keep track of how many team points you have scored? And from tier IV-VII, its with any ship? (Cruiser, Destroyer, Aircraft Carrier, & Battleship). Also good luck to all then in this event. o7

Participate button not working in IE 11. Maybe tomorrow when it starts?

Opera won't even load the page, just the blue background.

No, I don't want to install a spyware browser.

As usual, the game awards an extremely limited number of people out of tens of thousands with a premium ship.  Containers are nice, but if WG really wants to impress me then it needs to have more events than make it possible for more people to achieve a “bigger” payoff.  I liked the USS Indianapolis event last year.  Everyone had a chance at the Indy without having to be in the top .02%.  Just saying.
