Dear Devs;

On the grounds that one should never ask anyone to do something you're not prepared to do yourself, I'd like to see YOU complete the Puerto Rico directives.
Feel free to use a premium 'Community Contributors' account with craptons of different ships. Run it as a livestream. You can even rotate between yourselves and play 24/7 for all I care.
The only thing I ask: No Doubloon boosters and use only signals and camo you earn along the way.
So c'mon, can YOU, collectively, complete the tasks you have set for us to do on our own?

Most of them can't even complete a season of Rank or Clan battles so why would you expect them to grind out their own event? 

2019 has been one questionable decision after another from the WoWs Dev team. Was hopeful we could finish out the year with the Christmas event that everyone likes. But, NOPE, WG has to light up another dumpster fire. I could look past the reduced rewards for the snowflakes as "We're dealing with economy inflation" but this whole PR Directive thing is a bridge to far. 

I'm not sure who is making these decisions but they need to find a new line of work. Personally I blame that stupid Spread Sheet for screwing up the game this year.

59k doubloons equals $236 USD; 24K boost to stage 18, then 35K for instant completion. They say someone already has the PR.

Can any of them average ~70% Win rate? Because that, along with some MAJOR Camo and Special Flag use, is *required* to complete all stages in the required amount of time.

The other thing is that while it's technically possible to do as a free player, that free player would have had to spend a heck of a lot of money in the past in order to have the camos and premium signals necessary to do this for free now.

Either that or be a CC, as they get "show-it-off" premium crates showered on them with every event. I imagine you could build up quite the repository of flags, camo and doubloons that way, and never want for anything. It's probably why so many people want in on that programme.

I turned an idle thought in the direction of how many crates of various descriptions I would have to spam in order to get the flags and camos to finish the directives. I figured at a rough guess it would cost me less to pay out the full immediate value of the ship.

Yes, all my estimates included using maximum possible bonuses from Camos and Flags per Directive type, so the 2017 New Years Camo for Free XP + Papa Papa's + Various other Free XP flags, Commander Camo + Appropriate Flags for Captain XP, ect. If you do not have those, than even a 70%+ WinRate may not be enough to pass the time checks. I didn't do a 'naked' estimation, but I wouldn't be shocked if at that point it starts to require greater than a 90% win rate.

I'm more than happy for them to use a CC account and to rotate between devs so they can keep going 24/7.

Official WG grind math. Mine is too conservative and you can take a bit longer per WG.

This was posted by Fem in this thread. https://forum.worldofwarships.com/topic/206866-psa-a-message-from-sub_octavian-regarding-pr/

 

If you decide to get Puerto Rico for free, you should follow the following guidelines:
The first directive should be completed before building commences;
Directives 2 – 5 should be completed within 3 days of the directive’s opening;
The sixth directive should be completed within four days of the directive’s opening;
The final directive should be completed at the latest 24 hours before the overall event ends;
You must finish 20 Daily Missions and collect all rewards from Daily Shipments;
And spend your tokens as soon as possible on the next Token Boost.

Complete Dir I before Dec 16th, Dir II before Dec 19th, Dir III before Dec 23rd, Dir IV before Dec 27th, Dir V before Dec 31st, Dir VI before Jan 5th, and Dir VII before Jan 12th.

 


If you are planning to buy one premium booster:
The first directive should be completed before building commences;
Directives 2 – 4 should be completed within 3 days of the directive’s opening;
Directive 5 should be completed within 6 days of the directive’s opening;
You should finish the first 15 Daily Missions and collect all rewards from Daily Shipments;
And spend your tokens as soon as possible on the next Token Boost.

Complete Dir I before Dec 16th, Dir II before Dec 19th, Dir III before Dec 23rd, Dir IV before Dec 27th, Dir V before Jan 3rd. You do not have to complete Dir VI-VII.

 


If you are planning to buy two premium boosters:
The first directive should be completed within 5 days after the directive’s start;
Directives 2 - 3 should be completed within 6 days of finishing the previous one;
The fourth directive should be completed within 12 days of finishing the previous one;
You should finish the first 13 Daily Missions and collect all rewards from Daily Shipments;
And spend your tokens as soon as possible on the next Token Boost.

Complete Dir I before Dec 16th, Dir II before Dec 22nd, Dir III before Dec 28th, Dir IV before Dec 28th, Dir V before Jan 9th. You do not have to complete Dir VI-VII. NOTE: If you complete Dir I before Dec 16th, Dir II before Dec 19th, Dir III before Dec 23rd, and Dir IV before Dec 27th AND buy the Token boosts immediately, you can skip Dir V. 

 


If you are planning to buy three premium boosters:
The first directive should be completed within 7 days after the directive’s start;
The second directive should be completed within 7 days of finishing the previous one;
The third directive should be completed within 14 days of finishing the previous one;
You should collect all rewards from Daily Shipments;
You don’t need tokens from Daily Missions at all (but you will grind some anyway just by doing the Missions);
And spend your tokens as soon as possible on the next Token Boost.

Complete Dir I before Dec 18th, Dir II before Dec 25th, Dir III before Jan 8th. You do not have to complete Dir IV-VII.
