I am done the part 2 directives except for the darn flooding. It isn't hard to get a flood itself but trying to get flood damage has been so frustrating. Only have 1130+ so far of the 8K needed. I set up a target perfect, get it to DCP due to fire, then do a torp run with only 1 rack so it won't kill it and hope for a fire. Either RNG says NOPE and no flood OR if you get one the second you do someone dev strikes the ship..

Guess I need to try a CV and go for ships in the back so other people can't sink them before the flood damage takes hold.

The change to flooding mechanics is going to make this very hard, especially in co-op. The smaller size of the teams, the short games, and other human players blasting away at your flooding ship will make it practically impossible to get done. 

I am planning on skipping it unless I get it done by accident, and focus on one of the credit missions instead. If the USA is an option here, the choice will be obvious. Loads of Missouri games!

Maybe it should take longer than a few hours lol And by the looks of it, the flooding is just about right. :cap_like:

I find I'm getting a good number of floods using Ark Royal on Killer Whale.

Go for the Kawachi when she firsts spawns. There likely won't be anyone near enough to shoot her while she's flooding out.

I don't always expect to get every mission done the day it comes out.

Neither do I but Thunder likes to stay a week ahead of the rest of us I think.... He reminds me of a teenaged boy at dinner time, just gobbling up everything that isn't nailed down! 

Great suggestion Rumple, I hadn't thought of OPs.

I think the flooding mission was the first one I completed. I got it in a Kamikaze game by landing one torpedo on a Giulio Cesare for 9,100 flood damage. I landed only 2 torpedoes the whole match.

But it was in a random game. :Smile_hiding:

Don't hate me.

I don't. Everyone has flaws. I choose to look past them (usually). :Smile_veryhappy:

Having a teenage boy, this is grossly accurate.

I've almost lost digits passing him food.

Everything is right with the world again. :cap_horn:

Kaga + GK that used DCP + 4 torp hits and 2 floods = 10k flood damage!

And done...:Smile_izmena:

Now I have to wait a week for Stage 3... :Smile_sad:  (:Smile_hiding:)

Hard in PVE because of how people gang up on ships and how fast the AI damage controls - much easier in randoms.

Working from home, waiting for reports to finish running

Decided to log in, get daily drop, play a battle.

Z-46, 9500 flooding damage to an Iowa, task complete.

I consider operations the same as Co op, but with better benefits.

I hate you people..... The only progress I have made so far is sinking two boats and getting 4 secondary hits.... I only played two games though, earned my crate and went to play Tanks for a bit.   :cap_fainting:

 

BTW Thunder, I had an idea last night while playing the game. Was kind of irked I had so much time but the Directives were not available yet and it got me pondering. What do you think of asking Wargaming to give Premium Time players early access to the Directives. Say like 24 hours or thereabouts, to reward them for spending money on the game? Can you write something up like that if you think it is a good idea?

Was gonna say something like this; run your Destroyer-con carrier in Killer Whale Admiral.

Go for the three port battleships, or the three must sinks outside.

Just to make certain, are you using the signal flags that increase chances of flooding? ( I forget the names of those 2 increased flooding chances signal flags often, but they can help despite the higher Detonations risk for your ship in return unless running Detonations signal flags to prevent Detonations)

I still make use of those signal flags despite the reduced yield as far as flood damage and since I ended up with so many of those signal flags some how.

I was - 2 of them (fire+ flood and just flood). Understand though it's not getting a flood that is the issue so much as it is getting the ship it is on to last long enough for the damage to add up.

I don't think it is a bad idea or anything I just do not see WG doing it. They operate in their own little world and seldom if ever respond to ideas from the players. Complaints and riots yes but ideas not so much.

On mobile device at moment so have not been able to get to my computer to play WOWs yet today. Is the Flooding mission possible in  scenerio this time? Since with Killer Whale Scenerio at the moment you have those nice BBs to line up torp runs on including the BB that never moves away from the pier.
