The last major scenario added was way back when the US had their cruiser line split and we got Operation Cherry Blossom based on the Battle of Augusta Bay. I hope WG is not sleeping on this game mode because they are always a blast to let off some steam. With the current release of the Pan-European DD line and a bunch of other lines in the pipework such as Russian Cruiser split and possibly a German CV line for whatever diverse CV gameplay it brings in, here are some upcoming WW2 battles/ campaigns coming up in the next few months I hope gets a special event from WG.

 

German Norwegian Campaign (April - June 1940)

  • German CA Blücher gets sunk by land shore torpedos and guns
    • Assault and suppress forts while dodging torpedoes
  • Sinking of British CV Glorious by BC Scharnhorst and Gneisenau
    • Something similar to Dunkirk/Raptor in escorting CV with a special DD only restriction
  • First and Second Battle of Narvik. Heavy DD vs DD action with Warspite sinking major elements of the Kreigsmarine DD force
    • Have Capital ships unable to enter certain parts of the map, so DD have to scout for the enemy

Normandy Campaign/D-Day (June - August 1944)

  • Does this campaign really need any introductions? In fact, if there isn't any special commemoration,  there's going to be heads rolling.

Battle of Crete (May 1941)

  • This campaign was notable for being one of the largest losses the British Royal Navy suffered in a single campaign. 3 Light Cruisers 6 Destroyers sunk,  1 Heavy Cruiser damaged beyond repair,  1 Aircraft Carrier, 2 Battleships, 4 Light Cruisers, 5 Destroyers out of action between 6-12 months.
    • Another Dunkirk-like mission evacuating troops

Operation Vado (June 13 1941)

  • The only offensive French naval action against the Italian forces in the closing stages of the Battle of France. Notable because they got into a duel with an armored train
    • Raid the coastline while under fire from mobile armored trains

Battle of Coral Sea(May 4-8 1942) + Battle of Midway(June 4-7 1942)

  • Another set of battle that doesn't need any introductions. And considering the spotlight the CV are in these days, why not throw them their own scenario so they stop infesting random battles.

Operation Pedestal (August 1942)

  • One of the most heavily escorted convoys set out to resupply Malta, which at this point only had 1 month of supplies left. Escort was so heavy that every merchant ship had 3-4 warships escorting it.

They stated a while ago that new Ops are not something that is currently on their development map.

I hope it changes, but that's what they said.

Hope away. WG has stated numerous times over the last couple of years that new PvE content isn't something they intend to think about anytime soon. Consider this: How long it took them to actually fix the operations we already have, and how many OPs they've completely pulled from the game. WG wants us playing PvP, therefore, anything that detracts from that is, to them, a waste of their time.

 

The only way to cause WG to give us all the game we want is to not give them money until they do, but you can't stop the whales from dropping cash left and right, so as long as they do that, then this, right now, is the game we have.

They don't even care about bringing some of the older ones back, so there is no hope for new ones.

WG has made it quite clear that it actively dislikes Operations.  I doubt we will ever see Cherry Blossom, Dynamo, and Ultimate Frontier again, let alone see any new ones.

I'm surprised that they haven't just yanked operations entirely.  It seems like they've decided that different game modes are a distraction.

But this raises a serious question for me.  If they're not happy about supporting a mode (Operations) that has low player support, why does WG still support Ranked and Clan Battles?  They're not exactly known for their high level of player support either.

WG wants you to play Randoms (which it seems they also don't do much work on) and buy ships (which they do spend a lot of work on).

Seeing there's certainly a sizable subset here on the forums that like them, I'd think doing an event like the camo contests to design new scenarios would be a good idea. No idea what their developer tools look like, but it wouldn't be the first game to have a mission editor/scripting component in the SDK.

Have it open for a month or two, have the CCs play the scenarios, and have people vote on them by wathcing replays/streams. Voice acted lines wouldn't need to be done for the voting period, just use subtitles.

Game gets new content, players feel involved, and WG doesn't have to devote resources to a low priority game mode.

I hope they add more but I don't expect they will. Like others have said they haven't even fixed the broken ones they have.

WG is sleeping on this game mode.  If they deliver new Scenarios -- or even restore the old ones like Hermes, Cherry, Dynamo (they can keep Ultimate FU) -- then I will eat my cat.

Some folks are never satisfied.  WG just released five new Scenarios!

Reduced-payout Killer Whale

Reduced-payout Raptor Rescue

Reduced-payout Aegis

Reduced-payout Naval Station Newport

Reduced-payout Narai

WG poop cans half the Ops that were available and nerfs the ones we still have left.  

WG then cites low player turnout for not supporting or creating new Ops.
