Let's get this out of the way RIGHT NOW.

The start date is NOW.

The end date is MONDAY OCTOBER THE FOURTEENTH, at 3am Pacific time.

That means you have to be finished when you go to bed on Sunday Night, 13th of October.

Too soon

I had someone whining in the forums this morning that they didn't know, weren't told, it ended too soon, blah blah blah. I will post another toward the end, but I had to either get this out or say things that would probably get me a 24 hour suspension. :Smile_teethhappy:

Arguably yes, but it was possible to read it the other way too.

I'm 48, so yeah. I would stay up much later but She, who must be obeyed, doesn't like it when I wake her as I creep into bed after early-morning sessions. Cast-iron skillets and craniums start getting mentioned in the same sentence.  :Smile_teethhappy:

I will be unable to access the game for a few days, could anybody tell me how feasible the Directives are? Are they overwhelmingly grindy compared to let's say the Siroco Marathon?

I saw that.

I'm cynical enough to think that no amount of preparation will help some people.  "How can you expect me to remember something from 4 weeks ago?"

Yeah, with those people, I tend to at least think (if not say) that their lack of preparation does not constitute an emergency on my part.

Well, then you meet force with force and mention credit cards and scissors in the same sentence. And if she escalates to skillets, crania, and sleep in the same sentence, then you go for the jugular with the usage of "replace" and "newer, younger model".

At that point, it may not be wise to call her bluff; you may never be able to sleep safely in that house again.

...I could easily find myself 'sleeping' for a very long time. Like, you know, until the return of Christ, the Resurrection and the life everlasting. :Smile_teethhappy:

(She wouldn't actually kill me, but domestic bliss does matter more than pixel botes.)

The problem with that newer, younger model is that it isn't necessarily BETTER. It took me the entire first half of my nominal 3-score years and ten to find her; I seriously don't expect I'd find a worthy replacement until I was dead anyway. :Smile-_tongue:

Nothing wrong with that at all, though!

Domestic tranquility is much to be prized.

While my wife does not play these types of games, she has those that she does play.

Also, it took me quite some time to find her.  I know I got the better deal.  New models are less likely to actually be improvements.

 

On topic, the only surprise to me was the timing (Monday rather than Wednesday).

I will be posting a list of the directives in the next couple of days, as life offers me the opportunity. Anyone else is welcome to beat me to the punch if they see fit.

someone is still gonna complain that WG shortened the time to complete the objectives and demand compensation.

So we have to play and win with all of our ships by that Sunday night to get the gift bonus containers. We have til then to finish them all? Or is that just those missions?

Just to be clear.

[correction]

Oops...pardon my idiocy... It says right on them 'removal date 10.16.19.' And I was playing them all like crazy, from t-10 down, cause I thought we had to do them all today for the anniversary. LOL.    I guess I can go play Warframe some now too.

This post was written to address the directives, for which I have posted the screencap with the official end date and time.

I would take pains to have my ships played out as soon as possible. Based on what has happened before, it would not surprise me to require them to be done by the Friday before the directives end. It's not that hard to knock the flakes off in co-op. Pace yourself out, but don't become forgetful.

Edit 1: @warheart1992 caught that I forgot the Friesland for Pan-EU.

Edit 2: @YeOldeTraveller and @UltimateNewbie caught that Honorable achievements, listed in the profile in-game, cover the standard random achievements, collections, campaigns, scenario and general achievements. Here is the list and note that they only count in Random, Co-op, and/or Ranked.

This would be the list of Honorable achievements per the game.

Hit Fast! Hit Often!, High School Fleet, Belle Epoque, Battle of the North Cape, Battle of the North Cape (yes, they are two with the same name), 2 Years World of Warships, and probably more. NOTE! Only the ones earned in Random, Co-op and Ranked count, which leaves out a bunch. Not sure if the collection ones count either.

This all looks very doable. Only one random/ranked only mission, so you have a 2 mission co-op buffer for that Directive. Only one mission per Directive requiring premium ships, so a 3-4 mission buffer there. Only one set of DD, CL/CA, BB, CV missions and they are 400-500k damage, so nice and easy. The nation missions are 2.5M credits in a week, so nice and doable. You can complete the Directives if you are missing one or more nations. The XP, base XP and free XP missions are all open to any ship of any nation, so that is very nice. Overall, not a hard set even for those who don't play a lot IMO.

I felt bad about leaving you in the lurch a bit. Besides, I really wanted to know how tough this would be to get my doubloons for finishing them all.
