Currently i am playing about 9 - 12 hours a day.

And i will be doing that for the month of december.

and yet...even I WILL NOT spam play Carriers for 100 games in a row to get 350k XP on carriers (as directive 5 mentions).

because it's not a question of can i do it,or do i have time? it's a question of, do i trade my sanity (what's left of it) for some pixels on the screen.

P.S.

I even bought the first doubloon booster.

You do not need to finish any CV missions to complete all directives.

I am very interested to track your progress would you consider posting how your PR grind is going? You have a lot more time than most of us. Could be very valuable to see how far you get if indeed you play 9-12 hours a day. You might even be able to pull it off.

Oh well that changes a lot. You will be able to avoid doing Directive 7.

So yeah you can do it. Still would love to see how much time it takes you on directives 4-6.

You really have to go all in to finish the directives quickly after they drop. If you buy all the dub boosters. How many directives do I have to finish?

This is simply not possible for an average player without paying, period.

 

I believe you will be able to fit the people that finish this completely free on to 1 bus..maybe one of those little transit buses. Reading the fine print on the latter directives you will literally do double takes and say to yourself "Am I reading that right?!? I cant be!!"

I was pretty upset with the first directive had fire dmg from dds and cv only.

i went nuts last night because I’m headed out of town until Monday so I had to get it done. Took me 7 hrs last night

Not only the requirements for some of the tasks /directives look like the may have a typo in a form of an extra zero added to a number or Base XP / Free XP vs Regular XP...

Even if you manage to complete 6 tasks in the 1st ( current directive) stage, you cant start on the next one until a certain date.
Or
If you do not have the previous one finished, before the next one is available time wise, you can't work on them concurrently / at the same time.

So basically 4 days to grind out some of the more ludicrous tasks like "Base XP".
The key will be to identify 5 ~ 6 task that can be "farmed" quickly and consistently, but even then you will have to make this your full time job, if you want the Puerto Rico that is.


At least some tasks in Nº2 and Nº3 can be done in scenarios ( unless that was a "mistake" that will be corrected ). Even then that is still a "metric-[bleep] ton" of "Narai Runs".

With 1 doubloon booster, you don't need to do Directive 6 either.

Yeah this seems to be a grey area. Looks like Kiz shows that you do need and you show that you do not.

Yeah not sure where the disconnect is. Maybe it is the date for finishing each directive and applying the boost.

I'm 52 and retired...i'm not grinding it. I most likely would have bought it with cash in hand. But i'm not grinding it...lol so much of my money WG doesn't need with these grind ships and steel ships (grinding steel to get). I don't have time to grind ..i'm too busy grinding my golf handicap down...finally hit 6.9 handicap (golf is good..fun to play! and I get 12 thousand steps walking the course). Ships is starting to become less like a game and more like a job hidden in a game.

I tried with just doing Dir V, but you came up short. Here's the math I used.

125 CP/min base
131 CP/min Free  +6
235 CP/min 1st  104
339 CP/min dub 1 104  4.5M

12/16-12/19 4,320 min 339 CP/min  4,750,000 +  1,464,480 =   6,214,480               Dir II buy 2nd
12/19-12/23 5,760 min 443 CP/min  1,200,000 +  2,551,680 =   3,751,680   9,966,160   Dir III 3rd & 4th
12/23-12/27 5,760 min 789 CP/min  3,200,000 +  4,544,640 =   7,744,640  17,710,800   Dir IV 5th
12/27-12/31 5,760 min 997 CP/min  2,500,000 +  5,742,720 =   8,242,720  25,953,520   Dir V 6th
12/31-1/4 5,760 min 1205 CP/min   2,500,000 +  6,940,800 =   9,440,800  35,394,320   Dir VI 7th
1/4-1/13 12,960 min 1413 CP/min   2,500,000 + 18,312,480 =  20,812,480  56,206,800   finish just after 7pm Fri, Jan 10th

I see the difference now! Your math isn't wrong. You assumed 3-4 days to grind each directive. However, you have only slightly under 24 hours. Of course, you can and should provide yourself with a buffer with the first directive.

Just do what you can and get what rewards you can, even if you don't get PR.

Hmm I already activated the first free booster if I buy $100 of boosters offered l. What directives would I have to do. Just 1-3?

I went with 3 days per Directive, yes. Then you have to wait for the next Directive. With the slack of 6M or so of CP, you could take a bit longer than 3 days. I did it in whole days to make the math easy.

Yes, you would only need to get to Dir III and buy the 3rd Token Boost. You want to try and get the Directives done in 3-4 days, 3 preferred.
