Cheers, opted in as CV is one ship class haven't tried yet so might use it to give them a go albeit where I can't ruin someone else's game. Bonus points for a couple free 6 pt captains.

Pass. 

Yeah, carriers aren't everybody's thing.

I would still like the chance to try the rentals though. (Others may too.)

And, don't know how much 6 point commanders are worth to you (probably not that much), but it could be substantial for a newer player.

Exactly! Might as well take this chance to try something new and get 2 free 6-pointers.

Saipan, huh? Too bad there isn’t a premium American CV in the game that actually took part in the battle...

Oh, wait... I forgot, WG did such a good job with their “balancing” that she’s no longer available. :Smile_sceptic:

I don't exactly get what you mean.

I can see why it's a Saipan rental and not an Enterprise rental.

 Enterprise rental can't convince people to buy Enterprise (cause they can't anyways!). Saipan rental can convince people to buy Saipan.

Don't care about the CVs, but I'll take a free 6 point captain.

I imagine this describes many people.

Uuuuyyyyyyy...

OK, there was a real-world event associated with the date Dec. 7, in which the real-world Kaga participated.

A date which will “live in infamy,” but only if succeeding generations are taught it, and care enough to remember it.

 I really hope that helps.

Oh, I see! Thanks for explaining this.

Wait, what???  I thought the US carriers were out of Pearl when the Japanese suddenly and deliberately attacked on that infamous day...  I'm fairly sure that the only CV's currently in game that participated in that "battle" are the Shokaku and Kaga.  Hiryu used to be in game, but she's gone...for now.

Well Saipan is the one CV I don't have, and a free 6-point captain is nice. Meh, why not?

I feel like there is some one out there who will make a training room match on Dec. 7, put a bunch of stationary mid tier USN BBs in a row, and just go to town on them with the IJN Tier VIII CV of their choice.

The article and missions are commemorating the Battle of Midway, because of the movie now in theaters, not Pearl Harbor.

But yes, your historical knowledge is correct. One interesting fact is that if Enterprise has not been delayed by bad weather, she likely would have been transiting the channel into Pearl Harbor the morning of the attack. It’s interesting to think how history would be different if Enterprise was lost or severely damaged that day.

One day rental hardly seems worth the amount of effort.

What a weird BXP required... is 47,642 referring to something?

It’s referring to the dates of the Battle of Midway - June 4th to 7th 1942, or 4th to 7th June ‘42 (47642), if you live in any part of the world where the day goes before the month when writing dates.

 

Not super interested in the carriers since I’m not much of a carrier player, but a free 6 point commander or two just for playing the game? I’ll definitely take that.
