but so far, the carnal and lancet are garbage to play. maybe I'm playing it.. wrong? what am i missing? kamikaze 4km torps, no guns and a speed boost if you're lucky.. 

One opponent line has guns and torps, both out range you, the other has faster reload and outranges you... 20k exp of suffering required to finish.

painful.

Carnal is great. Very agile and can dodge trops to get in close mid to late game. Best played near the center of the map where you can set up ambushes really well.

I've enjoyed every holiday and event mode, including the recent space battles DD derp mode.  This one, however... I'm not sure why but I think it's kind of boring.

It is alright but it is also rather grindy to get the next ship particularly if you are having trouble getting wins. You have to chose the line you really want to play with a second to work on when you die and are waiting for the ship to get out of battle.

It has gotten a little repetitive, but, low consequence torp spam in short battles is kinda fun. still think 1/3 of the teams suck though.

The ships are not as twitchy as they were the last time this was done which was my biggest complaint, hamsters on meth.

Carnal is definitely the worst of the level 1 ships, but Lancet is starting to click for me.  You need to get in a lot closer than some of the others, and aggressively chase consumable spawns for TRBs and speed boosts as well as heals.

So, stupid point blank torpedo spam.

Sounds about as fun as when I had the remains of a cracked tooth pulled in prep for an insert.

It's the grind. It would be fun to play, but the grind to the next ship is so long that it makes the whole thing boring.

And winning doesn't help. You would have to be in a super division and winning every battle to see any noticeable gain in time.

Also, the credits & elite xp you produce on a per hour basis is very weak. Makes you want to go do something more productive.

Those were twitchier? Wow, because I personally find these far too twitchy to play. 

But, as I noted in PTS feedback, my gaming preferences are not everyone's gaming preferences. I don't enjoy it at all, if the majority does, fine.

So basically skip this mode, get all the tokens you can by other means, then buy the crates you need?

Or is there some low-hanging fruit that you can get by playing this mode?

I am happy to hear so, I tried all 3 types of ships and didnt like it at all, too fast and arcadey

Whats the point of gunny ships as Grozovoi if you cant shoot farther than 6km?

Even at blackpoint range the number of shells required to get a kill make it impossible to use them.

That sums it up except the boats look like floating trash cans.

The ship speeds were a lot faster, ~70 knots IIRC with the starter ships and they turned on the proverbial dime and spit out change.

The biggest problem is the mm in it. They either need to not allow full 3 person divisions, or introduce some sort of balance. Either a ranking system or not separating out the levels of ships. The amount of times you playing 1st level ships, and up against a team of unicums playing 3rd level ships... Not fun at all.
