yep, I need to grind my Skane and get the perma camo. I don't think I'll make it past it though.

Yeah, I need to complete that also ... we have until April 8 ... and I would say that's between 2 and 4 am, so the 7th to be safe.

Another point to keep in mind ... I've been moving 1 Captain among all EU DDs to increase his points ... before the update eveyone should ensure they have the Captain they want on each of the IKEA ships.  When they change to tech tree ships, if memory serves, the captain on the ship becomes trained for that ship.

I just got the Visby.  It'll take a lot of Scenarios and Randoms to get the Camo for the Vasteras.  I'm about half way there - need 6300 Base XP.

Final Directive-wise?  Might get it, might not.  These DDs are real painful to run.  Turrets are slow, and without smoke, need to keep that rudder moving when firing. 

Torpedoes are W-E-A-K !!!!  When I slam a full load of torpedoes into a battleship, I have to drop back, hide somewhere, then come back and slam another group in at point blank.

When I take a break from grinding and run a 'normal' DD, it's like a breath of fresh air. 

One thing is for sure:  They will test your 'Knife-Fighting' skills in DD work.

You can't do the mission unless you have the ship. If you only just got the Visby, you ain't gettin' the Vasteras camo.

Nope.  It would be very nice to have my Blys captain trained for the ship he is on, but it didn't happen for the French DDs or British Heavy Cruisers.  The Captain was put into reserve when it went to the line.

OK, thanks ... I'll give it a shot just in case and retrain for the final ship assigned as required.

NP.

Just that the post to which I replied said "I just got the Visby", which would account for my confusion.

My recollection is that he is ASSIGNED to that ship, but has to be retrained in the usual way. I have put my Blys captain into the Vasteras, and he is sitting there on his fat Polish backside until Wednesday. It will be interesting to see what happens.

This was a nasty trap for people who left existing tech-tree captains in their pre-release ships in previous events, only to have to retrain them to the original ship when the line went live. Here the only pre-existing Euro ships are all premiums, and can take any captain of their nation without retraining anyway.

Just looked up the 'Svenska Marinen' mission...  That's to grind the camo for ALL Five tier 5-9 camo ...   Wow !!   That another Puerto Rico impossible mission.

Shortcut is fires and torp hits by buying the 2M FXP DD..  and you get T10 camo for the Halland.

I'll be lucky if I get the Vasteras camo.

same with me

Actually wanting to get the Skane finished with perma camo then the T5, T6, and T7 can become trainer ships.

I started with my 10 point Friesland captain on Visby and moved him up each ship.  Currently 18 points on Östergötland and I have 238,000 xp on the ship.

Will be in good shape to acquire Halland and assign the captain there.

Finished the Ostergotland permacamo mission yesterday and now have no pressing reason to play until the next patch, which is nice. Was due for a break to play another game for a bit... Started a min/max run on Wasteland 2.

Should I be saving my tokens for the commander or use them on the oystergoat?

The commander will prolly be a different currency so might as well get the oyster.

Cant get captain for tokens. Him you will get by completing the next campain.

I just thoght that the EU captain might be for tokens since the Brit capatin was. Do you know if I'll still be able to get oystergoat after wed or will my tokens be useless then?

If it's not in this Arsenal, then it'll be in the next Arsenal chapter.

RN tokens will go away and the EU tokens will drop down a notch.  You won't be able to add any unless you can buy containers.

There will be a new type token to be won with the next set of directives/missions... and on and on...  You've seen it before.

We have a section called 'RELEASE NOTES' .  This is where your questions SHOULD be answered....   Good luck with that.
