Why do Directive mission requirements no longer include Sub Battles?

For the RU cruiser early access event, some directives could be completed in sub battles (even before sub battles had started). For the Dockyard event, none of the directives can be completed in sub battles.

Why the change? Should we be discouraged from playing sub battles? If this is unintentional, can it be fixed? Thanks! (Not a big deal for me either way.)

I think because sub battle will end before we get to far into these directives. But that is just a guess.

Sub battles will last for 2 more weeks. In this time, Directives 1-3 will be available.

But yes, this is a plausible explanation.

@Hapa_Fodder I just got into the game this afternoon and came straight to the forum to post this very question.  If you want us to play subs games give us some overlap.  I don't have time to grind an Odin AND drive bbs in subs games so they have something to shoot at

so then give us the option for the first three directives and after that that game style just isn't available

I don't think they want to have to patch the game halfway through the normal patch cycle.

Thanks for replying! Agree with this.

Thanks for taking the time to reply! Including sub battles in the requirements does not make it necessary to patch the game halfway through the normal patch cycle.

Remember that RU CA directives allowed sub battles even before sub battles were released? It will be just like this; sub battles will be included in the requirements even when sub battles can't be played. Hope you understand what I mean. :)

It is easier to include them when no one can play them than to have to change the allowed modes mid patch cycle and it is a given that people would be asking why they can't use sub battles to do the directives it they didn't.

This is not a 'change". They are two independent events.

The Dockyard directive missions had been published for long. Isn't it too late to discuss this?
