Hello all,

Does anyone have any idea which team is more likely to "win"? USN or IJN?

Are more people choosing one or the other? Which team is most likely going to get the extra two containers for winning.

I'm happy to play whichever team but I might as well give myself whatever advantage I can.

And I recon others would too, so we might as well share what we know as much as possible.

Gee, I wonder.....

 

I will be, quite honestly, shocked if it is even close.  USA is going to utterly run away with it due to 1) This being the NA server and thus many will pick USA out of national loyalty 2) The USA having the easier targets and thus both winning easier and more people picking USA because it is easy, which compounds with #1.

There's more to it than that, there are more selections of USN ships to play.  They have two eligible cruiser lines to one IJN.  There are enough premiums for a third cruiser line (minus a T6), a full second DD line, and a full BB line (minus a T7).

A full second DD line for USN???

T4: ?

T5: ?

T6: Monaghan

T7: Sims

Am I missing any DDs?

 

IJN:
T4: N/A

T5: Kamikaze R, Kamikaze, Fujin

T6: Shinonome

T7: N/A

 

4 IJN DDs vs. 2 USN DDs.

This morning in co op, well, it was kinda all over the place, like people either didn’t know or didn’t care, but casually scanning for US and IJN ships, it seemed many many more US ships were being played.  Now later on in the day, or in randoms, I can’t say if that was the case.

Are T4's eligible?  I thought it started at T6.  My mistake.  T8 has Kidd, T9 has Black.  Soon, Benham and Somers will be added as well, as well as T5 Hill.

Only T4 to T7. All other tiers are ineligible.

Seeing as how there is no leaderboard, or way to verify anything, the team WG wants to win will win.

This, unfortunately.

I mean, I can keep track on a piece of paper how much bxp I’ve earned, but it would be nice if it was being displayed like any other ‘mission,’ usually is.

Even without a main leaderboard, some form of automatic personal progress tracking would have been nice.

Update: In like 5 or 6 co-op games at Tier 4 [small sample size], I've seen way more USN than IJN ships.

But when I ask in chat, no one says they are participating.

Interesting.

I still haven't chosen a team.

You should tell them how to participate. They might not know.

Yeah this lack of information just kept me from bothering much. Got 10 wins in co-op with USN (plus two just in case) and am done with the whole thing. Honestly just a poorly set up event.

Wow !  We don't know anything.  We can't "see" anything?  We can't find anything about this event in any detail or specificity; and, you are wondering who is going to win something, no one knows anything about; and, that includes the company that created it???!!!

And this is "quality gaming...."  For WHOM?  Whomever was responsible for this event needs to be "counseled" and "re-educated" because I know young teenagers that could do better and have more imagination..... 

Terrible job and one more reason NOT TO recruit for this game anymore.......  I play an "almost dead" game that is on life support that does better than WoWs..........this is embarrassing.....

How balanced was the 1944 implementation of the event?

As @henrychenhenry pointed out, they DID have the battle of the Philippine Sea then.

And there were computers, then, as well. For that matter, the world’s first digital programmable electronic computer was employed for codebreaking of German Enigma machine transmissions during WWII.

They were around but needed a lot of manual input.  The video even shows someone in those funny moving thingies that you find at the top of your ship's superstructure in the game, wondering what they were for.

 

 

As I understand, Iowa-class kept their original WWII fire control computers until they were all finally, fully decommissioned.
