But I am tired of playing now...  Hope she's worth it.  Just having another Premium is cool though.

Congrats she is a good looking ship. I doubt that I will be getting it, I would have to play a CV or do randoms to advance, so I probably can't make it far enough that I would feel right purchasing it. I guess that's 14 bucks or so that WG is out, just because of the limits on the missions. GL with her and kick some butt.

Would it not make more sense, to make the missions easy, so more people spend $14 for it. I think they messed up majorly. I know I would have spent the doubloons.

I agree, I doubt i would be getting it, because I don't want to play specific class/nations. Even though it doable, im not even getting much, still need to pay $14, so i dont really have the motivation to jump through all those hoops

So, you mean it wasn't nasty to get the ship?

Wouldn't call it tough when the moment the last Directive hit there were 21 days left. Ample time in my books.

To all:

I love how people assume that someone is spending $14 out of their pocket for the ship.  Personally, I save up my dubloons from all the events (usually 50 each one) along with any that I get from the Birthday event SCs.  It has taken me a long time, but I saved up to about 15,000 until I purchased the Haida for the last T7 ranked season using the coupon it was around 3500.  I have about 11,200 left and I will use another 3500 to get the Odin.  Like another post stated, I have plenty of time left to finish the last directive.  I also save my free XP.  The Freisland was my last free XP ship and it has taken me a long time, but I am back up to 880k free xp.  I will grind the Soviet Cruiser the old fashion way instead of using free XP to get them.

My biggest problem is saving enough to purchase the ships that I am grinding and then buy the modules.  So I just take my time.  I just recently got the Albermarle and had to wait to get it because I did not have enough silver.  So I waited until I did.  I may not get all the new ships quickly, but I will get them.  I have said it before and I will say it again.  The only money WG sees from me is some premium time and it is always on sale.

Yeah, this one was pretty casual compared to other such events.

Agreed.  No complaints at all about this one.

Huzzah!

I had been hoping to get Graf Spee...

...but real life has intervened and I am not going to get close.

But that is ok.

New job, pregnant wife, relocating soon, family support for the pandemic...all these things are more important.

But this isn't about me.

Congrats and kick [edited]with the ship...unless you are facing me. :P

While there is some grinding to do, it is realativly easy to obtain.  WG didn't wall it off behind a crazy grind or super difficult mission requirements.

You are choosing to not the play required game types or classes and that's fine, but that's your personal choice and doesn't mean that they are difficult to complete.  They are not.

I actually found a way around it, the new layout is still a bit confusing. Now it's just a matter of playing enough everyday. Which can be a roadblock in itself.

What's wrong with randoms?

Some people just don't like it, or find the chat too salty.

Others have physical handicaps which make the playstyle required too difficult for them, such that they would be hampering their teams.

I used to do only Randoms until I found that I had a lot more fun in PVE. It all started when I needed lots of credits to buy the 9 tier 10 ships that I didn't have enough credits for. Operations was the best credit earning mode back then, mostly because of few defeats. It's also partly because of myself, I like to get into the battle and shoot things and in Random battles that will get you concentrated on every time, so basically I don't have the patience for Random battles. I hate the hiding and waiting aspect of it. Not very much teamwork plays a part in it too.

I've been enjoying her, 11.6 KM secondaries with a least 32mm pen are pretty darn solid.    Her big guns are pretty decent as well.    Haven't played that many games in her yet, but the ones I've played have all been fun.

Congrats.  Personally, I was just shooting for the Graf Spee, since I don't see anything in the Odin I can't get somewhere else.  But I'm stuck, since I don't own a CV.  To complete my current level, I either have to get something like 14 torpedo hits in a single battle, or 10 citadel hits.  Not impossible, but an extreme rarity, at least for me.  Then again, I just bought a T-61 for clan battles yesterday, and IIRC, there may have been an alternate condition that only requires 6 torpedo hits instead of 14 if you are in a T-61.  I'll have to check when I get home.

I'm having it oddly hard to get 500 mbh with a Haragumo. 

Tbh I may drop some coin on it. Looks like a real fun boat.

You do realize that you can ignore the CVs or even the Random missions, and still complete this, right?  Even that DD mission you mentioned isn't required as long as you can complete 7 of any of the other missions to go to the next level.  I am strictly PVE and am already halfway done with the last directive - and have not completed any of the CV missions since I suck in them (have been chipping away at them, but I still suck... :(    ).

What you seem to forget is that is your Books as you say,  is just that,  yours.    Not everyone has time to do this later and maybe they have travel, business or family commitments,  or all of the above,  that makes that 21 days left look more like 3.

Not disagreeing, just saying that the time limits are pretty generous, even if you put 1-2 hours a day in.
