Make Kill Assist a thing.

There are way too many "kill steals" in the game and when missions require you to sink X number of ships, its quite hard as one would need to grind the game (although this game is that kind of game) a lot to get kills as everyone is just shooting the same target, its just a matter of who's shots can finish the guy off. So, wouldn't it be better if there was kill assist in the game? Like as long as this person deal this much damage to the ship but someone else destroyed it, he/she would get a kill assist. That way one wouldn't need to pull off their hair and turn bald from the rage.

you do have "kill assist" in game, its called damage. The player doing all the damage gets the higher XP and credits then the player that steals the kill (they get 15% damage reward for the kill), so do not be concerned if you get the kill, just be sure to get rounds down on target and take the damage from them

I think he's referring to the ARP missions lengxv6-sama... I feel for him, I'm not so keen on doing the ARP missions since the anime didn't fit quite right to my taste... But I had a similar experience when I was doing Project R... Unfortunately there is naught to do but to try again as I did and succeed eventually... until then Good Hunting to you chuahsande...

good point Kreigg, Chuahsande - just let the ARP hype die down, couple days, and play normally. You have 2 months to complete it, if you play normal you will probably find you will rack up the kills before you know it, and be on to the next mission

If it's any consolation for you chuahsande... I mainly play CL/DD and it's been a hectic day for me... Escorting BBs and CVs is not fun as it used to be since everyone seems to be ignoring the escorted vessel and instead lobbing shells/dropping torps at the escorting Cleveland(ME)... It's not as much fun in my Mutsu and Oggy as well... I'm like "Oy!!! why am I one dodging torps from 3 squadrons of TBs when there's a perfectly juicy BB right next to me!!??"...

 

I was wondering why what's up then I read the ARP's Mission Objectives... I'm even considering dusting off the old Kongo...

Its a solid suggestion. Rather than having missions focus on getting the kill make it a kill assist where you need to do certain percentage of the enemy ship HP to qualify eg each 25% of the damage you do to an enemy vessel counts as a kill assist. Clearly you would need to up the goal required considerably by 2 or three times I guess. Make the actual kill equal to a kill assist point as well so that things don't swing the other way and you get players leaving low HP targets alive while they pad their damage/KA.
