Today I saw that yesterday they posted a US Navy Birthday mission series. (https://worldofwarships.com/en/news/history/usnavybirthday2019/) Basically no notice. Why sneak that in? Come on! Make it a week long so players can participate.

I sympathize with your missing out on the patch.

There are lots of helpful people on forums happy to help others out and point out opt-in stuff, unexpected missions, etc. in-game.

If you want to get "free stuff", check the forums periodically.

Patch drops Wednesday.  That's why.

I don't think that's why. Missions can span multiple patches. For example, the Legendary Upgrade missions regularly span multiple patches.

Two things: One, it is just a patch, in other words, more COD, juvenile garbage. Two, it really isn't tough to get 250, 500, and 1000 base xp. It shouldn't take a week.

True, but, those are an exception to the norm.

It was LITERALLY "complete the first phase of yesterday's daily missions".

Yeap -- I went looking for the mission, and then said "those numbers sound familiar"... and sure enough, the camos and the patch were right there in the first daily chain.

Anyone who plays on a regular basis should be completing the first daily chain most days, even in Co-op it's only 4 or 5 battles.

The research spin-off challenges have been around for over a single patch. I am sure missions can span multiple patches too. No reason they can't.

Won't take a week, but will "force" you to play a day where you might not otherwise have.

Yes, pretty much the same. Mission not that hard, just sucks for people who missed out on one-day stuff (I did get the patch yesterday).

Taking a couple minutes to log in each day also prevents missing "daily shipment" stuff.

Yes the mission was easy to complete if you logged in and played that day.

However, why wasn't there advance notice about this mission?  What would be the harm in announcing it earlier.  Especially when advance notice has been given with other events.

My point exactly.

I checked my patches, and yes, I did get it without knowing it. And, of course, WG screws it up by calling it the Birthday of the US ARMY!

Yeah, I noticed that and wondered why in the heck they were celebrating the birthday of the US ARMY?

I've noticed this with a few of the events, such as Canada Day, and Thanksgiving. 

Seems that the people in charge of communicating about upcoming events have been asleep at the wheel.
