I’m just wondering what everyone’s “Go To” Ship is for your First (and second!) Daily Trial in the Recurring Combat Missions (winning battle while scoring 250 base XP).

 

Anything you score above that 250 base in that first game doesn't count toward the second goal, which is to win the next battle and score 500 base XP.

 

So you don’t want a ship that can’t reach the first goal – nor one that OVERREACHS and often achieves the second goal!

 

You have to consider:

BBs too slow to get into combat,
Enemy team sails away from your BB, long range gunnery falls short of goal,
Allied team sinks nearly all foes before your BB can take part,
BB too powerful, consistently makes 500+ pt games,
DD gets sunk early by lucky salvo/torp spread
DD often has monster game scoring over 500 pts,
DD just too durn weak and misses the 250 pts too often,
CA with torps can easily have monster (500 pt) games = wasted game.

 


My “Go To” ship for the first Daily Trial is the Dallas.

My “Go To” ship for the second Daily Trial is the Cleveland.

 

What’s yours?

My go-to for the first stage is whatever my highest priority ship grind is. While speedrunning up the line before Khaba swapped to the armory, it was whichever RU DD I was grinding. Then it was Jutland until I finished grinding Daring, and now it's Fletcher. If I have two that are decently close in priority and one has a 21 point captain, I use that one so the extra xp also goes to extra ecxp.

I never really concern myself with "wasting" base xp on the first stage or two, since each one is typically only one game anyway. My pick for the second stage is also typically another priority grinding ship, but will sometimes be a non-grind ship if I'm working on a certain mission.

Minor correction, neither of the first two stages require a win, just 250 and 500 base xp. The first stage that requires a win is the third one (1k base xp in wins).

Any fun ship at my disposal will do... For now its been

  • BB/Mass
  • Cruiser/Schores
    • Runner up cruiser bundy
  • DD wise... Fubuki

It just depends on how I feel. OR what CM I want to compete with a fun ship...

Bayard is generally my pick for 500. 250? Anything that isn't bad for Bxp in co-op. No non-fast BBs, and torps are often a must. The faster the ship, the better, too.

Bayard occupies a great sweet spot. She's a premium, so I don't have to keep a T8 equipped with a commander. She's got enough firepower to quickly obliterate DDs, making for efficient xp.

But the most important thing is she's T8. So long as you are bottom tier and don't eat torps too early, she can easily break 500 Bxp fairly consistently, often going as high as 600 or 700, if not even higher.

Also, might wanna mention co-op in the title, OP. The PvE forum isn't very noticeable if you join via the recent conversations section.

HMS Repulse. Love the lower tier for the less amount of gimmick and more manageable CV. And Repulse is a fun ship to play

I just play whatever I'm regrinding or whatever I feel like. I expect to reach those thresholds every single battle regardless.

Likely a ship I don't play particularly well as getting 250 or 500 base xp is easy so I use that time to get better in an unfamiliar ship.

Well, I do for the daily's....!  I play the ships in my port in the order they appear: everyday for daily's.

Halland, Napoli, Bourgogone, Marceau, Thunderer, Minotaur, Daring, Schliffen, Mechlenberg, etc.....

And, certain ships for each operation.  I really don't play Ranked that much nor Clan Battles....

I have Repulse and Exeter, with a 21 point Cunningham. Good times. :)

Repulse was the real prize of the dockyard.

 

Hopefully the new British CC will play similarly to her... tho I feel like the forced ''torpedo'' gimmick will make them play differently.

Anything besides a CV.   This isn't a "I dislike CVs" comment.  It's just that I am not consistent enough with my CVs to rely on being able to get 250 base xp in a single battle.

Sometimes slow BBs when I know there is a DD-centric mission going on.

My first game is always a ship I'm grinding since you get an extra 500 xp with the first daily trail reward.  I'm not super into grinding so I most of the grinds I do are fairly low priority and only get played once a day for that extra 500 xp.

My daily order is:

Mecklenburg (Lütjens)

Salem (Ovechkin)

Smolensk (Kuznetsov)

Agir (Jutland)

Prinz Eugen (Jutland)

These usually get me to the second daily container and I can then start work....

If I need one more match that would be the Atago (Yamamoto)

T9 Fletcher
T8 Ognevoi
T8 Kiev
T7 Z-31
T8 Z-23

Most of the time, something that I am grinding xp on that is tier 8 or 9 for that 1st battle. If not then just what I feel like for the day.

I don't have a designated first ship- it's usually one CA or another, but which one depends on mood more than anything else. I'll play a few rounds in different cruisers to get a feel for where I'm at that night, then hit my current grinds for their first-win bonuses, then settle into whichever of those I was posting the best results with.

I regard the daily missions as a background task only; they don't get any focus at all unless I'm going to be grinding below T5 and have to switch to a higher tier to do them at some point during the session.

Which is fair. Most CVs aren't in a great spot in co-op. There are 3 CVs I'd call truly good at co-op. Kaga, FDR and that russian T8 premium. Ignoring secondary build CVs, as those require a match to drag on a little, which is wishful thinking with a DD ahead of you.

The thing that makes all three good? Ability to lose massive amounts of planes and keep trucking, as the bots clump a lot.

1. 250bxp - any ship, usually a tech tree grind. except the lower tier BBs, im confident any BB or cruiser i play will go over 250bxp
2. 500bxp- high tier cruisers, usually high dpm ones, like Mainz... my Irian also works well. These are more likely for me to attain 500bxp in a match than most other ships.
