For those who missed this in the news section (why not post it here in PVE???) the following 3 scenarios have been reinstated/re-activated while another scenario has been pulled due to bugs and to be fixed.

  • Defense of Naval Station Newport 
  • Aegis 
  • Killer Whale
  • Raptor Rescue (removed for repairs)

 

  • Cool 4

I haven't logged on yet, is it the stupid one (Defeat of Naval Station Newport)? If it's the stupid one, it's like the Operations are still gone till next Tuesday night anyway, unless you have a team and do Aegis Or Killer Whale that is. It's not always feasible to wait for a team to build.

I hope Newport isn't up when I need to grind the Commander xp.

Nice to have them back.  :cap_like:

Gimme the rest of them now!  :cap_haloween:

This is a lifesaver for finishing daily combat missions. For a lot of people, finishing both daily combat missions purely in randoms is an exercise in frustration and can take several hours easily. With operations, you can do them in maybe 2.5 hours at the most.

It's almost as if WGHQ is working on these, not "sending them to the Gulag" to get rid of them.

I cannot recall ever seeing a transport routing malfunction on Aegis,

There's one transport routing screwup that is well known, and that's when your team faceplants so miserably that the transports are 2/3 the way to the bottom of the screen before the last escort is destroyed (because that's the signal to turn back). There comes a point beyond which they can't get into the extraction circle before the timer runs down, so even if everyone who's still left sacrifices themselves to clear a path, you still lose.

I'm actually very surprised they brought Raptor Rescue back. It was known for screwing successful teams over with CV path malfunctions even in the RTS CV era.

  • Restoration of other operations (cherry blossom, etc) has no date currently

While I'm glad the other ops are coming back. This just disappoints me so much it really doesn't matter.

Remember when WG regularly released fun Scenarios like Dunkirk (saving the trapped men and avoiding minefields) and other ones where you either gathered a bunch of friends or took your chances wrangling a group of strangers to understand the strategy and work together)?  Hell they don't even reset the stars so you can redo the same ones we have been stuck with for years now so you at least get a reward for working through the same old stuff again. 

Come to think of it I can't remember the last fun in game event where you received a reward just for playing normally (not grinding for a month all day every day or shelled out cash to finish the requirements)...remember the cool camo's for the Bismark where one was the yellow painted turrets cool cammo and one was the sunk at the bottom of the sea sunken ship looking one? Remember the fun early events like going for the Kamikaze R or unique camos, earning a free Prinz Eugen with out having to become a hermit with a pee jug under their computer desk?

Seems like every event now requires a slave like grind chained to the computer for a month or breaking out the wallet and entering your credit card. Everything is on the cheap now. I used to come away from Ranked battles after ranking out with a metric ton of flags. Now I end up receiving so few I'm actually in the hole and have less flags than I started with.

Game balance has gone out the window as well. Remember the Kut and Belfast being perma removed from sale because the combo of smoke and HE was ruining the game and the British Cruisers had to be handicapped with no HE because of it. The Belfast couldn't have torpedoes because God forbid it would be beyond OP. Then they release the Smolensk. A ship with smoke. HE. A rate of fire and DPS with that HE that makes all other ships at tier X Ranked obsolete. I made it to Rank 5 last season with Des Moines and was FORCED to buy a Smolensk because if your team lost you had ZERO chance of saving a star vs Smolensk and its god like HE, Smoke, Torpedoes and range of almost 17k (Belfast, Flint only could wish they had that range and torps to boot...plus all the consumable goodies). I went from Rank 5 to Rank 3 and back again 8 times before finally buying a Smolensk to save stars and went straight to ranking out with not one more star lost. We're not even talking about the most egregious and game crushing balance fail...the CV which utterly destroyed my desire to be a DD main anymore after 8k games. Having to learn how to play classes I don't really like playing like BB because I got tired of being executed at will by any CV who had the whim to send me to port in 3 attacks or less or just keep me spotted permanently depriving me of my main ability...concealment. Every poll says 80%+ of the player base wishes they could either have a "no CV in my game button" or just have CV's removed all together or at least rolled back to pre 9.0.

It just seems like WG is slipping in every department except ship modeling. I'm still here and playing so it's not yet for me so bad that it's quitting time...but I went from playing 20 games a day 7 days a week for 4 years to playing 3 games a day 3 days a week since 9.0 and have closed my wallet going from a guy that would throw down 80 buck for a Tirpitz no questions asked and buying a year of premium time at a pop.  

I really like this game. It has something that really appeals to me even despite the above decline. I really wish they would address these issues you see brought up in game (YEA ...ITS A NO CV GAME GUYS!!) or on the forums every day for the last year. They know how to do it. They were absolutely crushing it and making an amazing game for years. Lets get back to making a great product that makes me want to make big money purchases.....instead of trying to Puerto Rico'ing my cash from me...not getting it and pissing me off in the process?

*end rant mode*

Fem, 

..and hasn't for a year plus now. We realize that the company line must be toed; but with respects, the standard patter is wearing thin.

If WG isn't willing or able to fix the missing operations due to resources; then find a way to reasonably monetize operations. Or they could just put them behind a completely unreasonable paywall and be done with the issue.

Either way, players would get the answer I honestly think we deserve and is somewhat, with respects, overdue.

You and me both. (and probably just a few other folks)
