Having a moment or two with the ARP challenge {aircraft carrier 50,000 tons damage} How am i supposed to do this when in 30 battles i have had 5 with aircarriers,There are just so many battles right now in BBs that i dont have any chance at finishing this Challenge?? Let alone getting close enough to do damage..It may be ok if you have carriers to do this at level 6 but i dont. I dont like playing the carriers so i have all Russian ships and most JPN most German and some American DDsPlus all but 1 ARP ships,and some premiums ships like imperator nickoli which i LUV..Got to admit i feel like giving up on this challenge.. Why cant it be accumalative instead of the way its is?? At least if it was i would be done by now, as i have done that damage over time whilst trying to complete the other stages of this ARP challenge.. cheers anyone else stuck at this stage???? SIGH just spent 2 more hours in game for nil on carriers.. just to many battleships....

get a cv player preferably the one who finds the enemy cv then get ur most accurate bb and grab a spot plane.use ap.

 

you can do that, or.. just play like ussual, destroy all enemy and finish the cv by your self.

 

it easier to kill the cv if you are winning

 

it takes time because sometimes the cv is killed by our teammates, but this way you wont mess up the game by rushing to kill cv without thinking to win the game

first time of events, took a month to complete

 

if you're talking about this event, it only took me 3-6 days cause i got lucky in solo kill 2 cvs in independence, and that was enough for the damage condition

 

shot-16.08.07_02.38.54-0916_zpsmjz9w4kf.

 

shot-16.08.07_02.38.56-0138_zps0fxh52pg.

 

shot-16.08.07_02.38.58-0015_zpshosa8pjy.

I did the whole mission without touching a CV myself.

 

Got the CA/DD/BB damage using BB, got the CV damage in 2 games in DD (well many games, only 2 of them I was  able to hit them, cause I refused to throw the game and didnt yolo rush CVs).

My solution 

Buy back my ryuujou and play the games 

Anti-Carrier from start

 

it didn't work well but usually you have a chance to hit them as most players doesnt start moving until spotted 

but obviously i play normally after 1st attack and support my allies after hitting the carrier

 

like all the people above said its best to division with someone else

i hope you can find someone who is willing to help you in this

i might but i don't play cv that much

^3 fighter ryuujou to have air dominance kek

 

anyways other than that all you can do is just keep playing

 

and you aren't alone on the frustation because i was frustrated when i saw 100k dmg to DD and 50k to CV

just remember : Keep calm and play normally , everything will work out fine

kek like the current kc event its hillarious how people are rushing things

 

P.S. you have weeks before it ends take your time , maybe 1-4 games per day or 2-3 hours of gameplay per day you will reach there soon :)

nope the first Aoki hagane event (30 CAs 30 DDs 150 planes 300 fires and 2x1M damg) not this time.

this time I did stage 4 in 3 match (My CV Capt just 10points)

1st(Hiryu) vs Saipan-->Win and kill Saipan,

2nd(Ranger)vs Hiryu--> disconnected and lose,

3rd(Hiryu)vs Hiryu with T5 Capt skill and I sank her at last.

 

BTW this event not easy for many new player, who had played this game for long time then its not a problem.

Yeah, I feel your pain OP. This mission is difficult for new(ish) players, or players who don't have the proper ships to do it. Like you, I don't like to play CVs, but that was the route I took to finish the mission. Got my Independence and finished it in four battles, playing normally, no CV sniping.

 

As the others suggested, you have some options. If I didn't have a CV on hand, I would take the DD route. Division with a CV player and use the DD to hunt down CVs. Not the best thing to do since it is abnormally selfish play that would probably lose you and your team mates the match. Or you could be patient and do as icy did with his DD play.

Done it without playing CV and DD

 

It can be quite frustrating but you might get lucky

 

I did too. I got the first 26 K cv damage in Colorado. But you cannot play like typical holding back BB players. You need to notice the enemy CV and start pushing that flank hard with your teammates to reach the CV. Since you are a BB, you should have that CV in range before most others. So many people play CV now, you wont even need to make a division with a CV player. I don't it is easy to reach enemy CV in cruiser in normal conditions.

Completed this with CV and CA in around 4-5 games. What was more frustrating was at the time knowing this was coming up and taking out CVs at t8 and not having this damage included

Not at all ,  i only started playing this game ( or this very kind of game - WoW is so different to FPS , Moba -> two types which i'm good at ) for about two months? ( since the ARP Kongo mission recently ) . And it takes me a week ( included some days when i'm too busy to play ) to complete the challenge , easy at all ....

+ In a battle with Aoba , i personally sank Hiryu since she got no planes left :)

so you prefer 30DD/CA kills + 300 fires?

 

*'nam Flashback* 

 

Those missions is so damn frustrating and stressing and you can't do it in RB where the first season was out so you have to choose between ranked or ARP

It's a challenge.

 

It's optional, and the ships are rewards.

 

I'll leave the methodology up to you, but there's still over two weeks to finish the challenge.
