I managed to finish on Saturday. A real grind. If they got rid of Epicenter map it wouldn’t have been so grueling.

I finished on Thursday. While I enjoyed it at the beginning, it felt like a heavy grind at the end. Too many wins required and you have to finish ALL missions to get any coal. Ranked feels more balanced re. the rewards.

Didn't even try. Managed to get the first 3-4 missions done.

Played ranked instead. Rewards for the amount of games needed isn’t worth it to me

Played for the first credit rewards. Enjoyed it so much I kept going for the coal.
Finished in 3 days, but a ton of hours.
I don't grind like I used too. I prefer to take breaks and enjoy the battles.
At a 50% w/r that's 82 battles. They're usually quick, but if you take breaks
it's a hard mission to finish.

Nope.

Played a few. Got a few done.

The game is not a good product and not worth the excessive no life grinding that will be needed to finish.

utterly ripped at the end, thank you match maker? 1 more bout and (3rd)750k. But losses for last hour.... It only figures, seemed pretty remarkable to actually lose some of them. 950 to 300, 2 on 1, etc the matches always got thrown at the last minute. No matter what the advantage was. 11 in a row i think. it scuffed a little. But I do LOVE the format however. To have it available at will would be a great addition to the current stale playing environment. 8000 death match arena battles and counting, yay! Blergh..... I want more content, an actual game. Not the same 8000 things the same all the time.

Done Friday night.

It was fiarly fast on Mon-Wedneday when I can win 3 stages fairly quickly per day

It went downhill on Thursday Friday, whre you can get 1 win per 7 matches.

I decided to help out on Sat-Sunday and try out other ships I haven't played. I told the others up front it's up to them to iwn or lose. One of them appreciated my contribution. I suspect the good ones already finished by Wednesay nite.

The lesson here is start early where you'll have plenty of good players doing the same thing with the incientive to finish as fast as possible. 

What was playing at the end? Noobs, spuds and those who started late.

Enjoyed the format but only made it midway through the grind due to splitting time between ranked and brawl.  Brawl should have been scheduled during the break between ranked seasons.

Personally didn't find it all that grindy, just had fun playing the format win or lose.

It was a slog for me. I had long win and long losing streaks, but it was a three-way competition for my available game time because I really wanted to finish Silver League Ranked Battle (I am a dedicated Silver League farmer, and I always want to finish before the end of the first weekend of each sprint to have a relaxed week and a half until the next one), and also I have started up PTS play again because of the community token rewards. PTS was a bit of a slog and took most of a day and a half to complete - had to redo Bronze League Ranked because I didn't know the ranks were going to reset each day unless you'd done qualifiers for the next league, and then I got stuck in the doldrums in Silver League with the legendarily bad play on PTS. Once I finally qualified for Gold I did three fast Tier X sub battles Sunday, and then I had to push for the last 11 wins in Brawl on Sunday late afternoon. Had a bad streak and went 7-11 for Brawl matches, but came back for an hour after a dinner party I was hosting finished, and went 4-1 to finish Brawl about three hours before the server reset.

Nope.  Never even looked once at the missions for it.   Just played the mode for fun with clan mates.

I finished it. It was fun at first but the monothony of map, comp and tactics made it boring for me halfway through the grind. I only kept playing because it was a good way to grind XP and getting familiar with the T-31. 

Also a very different experience playing Divs or Solo. With able partners you could breeze through it, if playing Solo you are at the mercy of MM, which prompts a question...

I read somewhere the mode had some sort of SBMM, was that true?

It does say that in the loading screen. No further details.

Nope. Only because I forgot brawls are accessible to anyone. Had been thinking they were part of clan battles, which my clan doesn't participate in. Once I tried and got into a battle late last week, I got all the credits missions done.

Yup, brawls had great credit/exp rewards and the format was fun; wish it was an all the time thing. Played a DD for most of it and was instantly in a match every time I hit battle.

Same problem... Those in the Eastern and Central time zones get screwed if you do any playing before lunch time.

....But the Brawl rewards were way over nerfed.  I get the old CB rewards were too much, but playing 50 games for 10k coal and small amount of credit/flags is not worth it to me.... Not to mention coal isn't as valuable as it once was. 

I don't think we will ever see another Thunderer, Smolensk, Georgia, JB, etc. available for coal....those type ships will be RB/Steel for now on.  If you exclude the Retreads and CVs.... here's the last 3 coal ships....

Marco Polo, Z44, and Pommern. 

MP... isn't that good.

Z44 also meh

and Pomm wasn't too bad as released, but after the skill abomination?.... not so much.

 

Don't get me wrong.... I love the mode...had a lot of fun for a few battles....but the rewards were actually a reason for me to play it less than I would otherwise....hell, the daily win bonus doesn't even apply....and Weimar's battle bonus didn't work either....

I found it really enjoyable. I did almost all of it solo and it took 65 games (41-24). There were some definite potato teammates and I did run into maybe 2-3 divisions made up of clan players that actually worked together and knew what they were doing. the biggest keys to getting match wins were having the better DD. The winning formula applied to every map, push early take a cap advantage and force the other team to push at you where you could choose firing angles and torp arcs. I hope 3v3 becomes a thing as long as it maxes out at t7/8.
