I think if we do each other a favor, we should all be running cruisers to complete this mission.

This is for last week's final Pan-Asia task, right? They do know there's no tokens behind that mission, right?

That mission isn't available until next week (and only requires 7 citadels, not 10.)  I'm not sure what mission the OP is referring to.

Des Moines and Salem are the kings at this one between high ROF and improved auto-bounce angles.

Last time I needed citadels I had to take a break, and then I got 11 in 1 game. With a Chapayev ...

In the Prinz Eitel Friedrich contest, there was a 12 citadels mission that was giving me fits. I finally read here to use Coop, and Jervis in Coop handled this in 2 tries. I can’t remember is it was 12 in a single mission or cumulative, but British destroyer’s AP was surprising.

That's so easy to get in a Leander or Fiji against another cruiser. You can probably get 7-9 cit's in one salvo at a close range.

American and Dutch bot cruisers are the best because they can't torpedo you from the grave during the driveby.

German CV says hi. Did that by accident in two passes of going after a cruiser with rocket planes.

Was that against CLs?  CLs with their thing belts in particular are real susceptible to it.  Especially RNCLs.

Talk about a big nothing burger. Nothing like crying about a mission that might be on the harder side to do that isn't even needed to complete the mission chain.

 

And for the title of this thread, hands up anyone that is actually going out of their way to do this mission.

I'd finished that mission chain and was completely apathetic towards that mission when I did this:

For all the times this game can frustrate me, some games make it all worth it. If we discount the CV rework.

Yep, any time there is a cit mission I take my Salem into COOP and get it done rather quickly.

Only problem with that is that the mission the OP is referring to is Random/Ranked-only. Still, I agree that DM/Salem is a good choice, Minotaur and a couple others are also relatively good at getting cits nice and fast.

Nice.

One of the things I have serious trouble getting in Dutch cruisers is citadels. Are Haarlem's guns that much better than Eendracht's that you did this, or did you just get very lucky?

Stalingrad is a Pez Dispenser for citadels. Get on a flank and turn in. It’s beefy enough to survive some shelling and those shells will citadel most anything. Pro-tip: Minotaur is a piggy bank full of cits, make sure you raid it.

IJN heavy that couldn't turn due to incoming fire. First strike 4, second strike 7. 

I was just trying to win for the 200% + premium + all flags. I'll pray for his soul later.

Funny thing is, you can run a minotaur and get the achievement in a single battle just be suicide rushing the red light cruisers (other minos, etc). :P

The dutch cruisers are great. The harleem is a gudbote, but the Gorden Leeuw is my new fave cruiser in the game.(that i have anyway) Tanky af, accurate, both HE and AP shells are very good. 1v1d a full health kremlin yesterday in one. Surprised him coming around an island, between the 2 plane strikes and a salvo of AP to his broadside at close range...dead in a matter of seconds. It's also pretty dang agile.AP seems like a petro but able to dodge torps and good HE dmg, with fires a plenty.

PS: i suck at cruisers typically.

why even bother with "do X in single game" stuff? Use the other option. I am not even sure which one, all my missions completed themselves, I was just playing normally...
