Newport currently seems to be the operation that has the highest rate of failure for a multitude of reasons. Here is a song about it, to the tune of Tim Burton's This Is Halloween.

 

In the list of tier 6 ops,

One op stands above them all

Potatoes come here to sink

All around this naval base

 

This is Newport, this is Newport

Three teammates dead in a single wave

This is Newport, go alone at your own risk

Suffer or just div up and then you might actually win

Rush in and you will sink

In the seas around Newport

 

I am the destroyer that sneaks on by

Triggers all the waves and bids goodbye

I am the low tier cruiser that baits

All the destroyers and lone cruisers in

 

This is Newport, this is Newport

Newport! Newport! Newport! Newport!

 

Yolo in, and you'll go

Back to port in the blink of an eye

Did you just repair 3 fires?

The AI's just gonna set another three

Why are you all camping in the healing circle?

Let the AI in and you'll all sink just the same

Defeat! This is Newport

Sunken ships! Destroyed forts!

Frustrated?

Another defeat!

One star lost, two stars lost

Can't you focus fire guys?

At the cruiser that's gonna cross the line

Operation failed! Operation failed!

In the seas around Newport

 

I am the cruiser that angles perfectly

Focuses you until you're burning nicely

I am the battleship that can shoot

And hit you from across the map

I am the oblivious one on your team

Rushes in, dies, and then complains

 

This is Newport, this is Newport

Newport! Newport! Newport! Newport!

 

Potato wrecks everywhere

Here's where the AI reigns supreme

That's their job, but don't blame them

In the seas around Newport

In these seas

Don't we hate it now

Waiting to see how this run goes wrong

Battleship Gunkan doesn't care about your angling

Overmatches your armor

20k salvo through the bow

This is Newport, another defeat

In the last wave is a very special battleship

Izumo outclasses all your ships one on one

Get its broadside, torp-rush it, or focus it

 

This is Newport, this is Newport

Newport! Newport! Newport! Newport!

 

Here's where the tables turn

The AI milks the tears of the playerbase

Sunk! Sunk! Sunk! Teammate sunk! Sunk! Sunk! Fort destroyed! Destroyed! Destroyed! Operation failed!

The operation is fundamentally different than the rest which results in poor play.  Instead of sailing together in a convoy toward an objective like the majority of the operations, in this one you are waiting in a harbor for waves of attacking ships.  Most sit back and shoot bow on ships instead of actually moving to an ideal position,  and next thing you know everything snowballs and you lose.  I still enjoy it though, and it is most satisfying when you 5 star imo.  The only other operation that I found similar to Newport was Operation: Ultimate Frontier, which unsurprisingly people also struggled with.

Narai can be done with 4 people and is much much easier.

That moment when the team is unable to stop the 1st wave from breaching and triggers all the waves at once.

From there it's an impossible win not worth trying, so might as well go full yolo and die quick so you can get out of that hell hole.

Now made even worse as the two Healing ships no longer snug up against the island correctly, leaving them completely vulnerable.

Ah, I guess Wargaming wanted us PvE players to take a week off from playing their game.

But you can be sure, that when someone starts playing the Halloween song, these are the lyrics that will be going through my head.
