This time it's WG sponsoring Extra Credits to do a promotional series on the death of Bismarck. Presuming hyping up Hood's release.

 

Either way, it is a good Introduction to what happened, and I highly recommend watching it if you are interested in the history of the Bismarck but don't want to bore yourself out.

(Unless you're history nerd like me, lol.)

does anyone know if having the Bismarck is a must to do the mission? If it is then I better get my stern moving and grind that line lol

 

Bismarck not required.

 

However you can win the Bismark and often the potential credit profit is greater if you already have ship in port. I haven't bothered trying to work it out in this instance as she is already sitting in my port. You only get a 1 point captain (well at least that was what it was on PTS) so the captain is a throwaway. 

 

Having the Hood is a bonus. There are missions that can only be completed with the Hood which can fast-track your progress.

Buy hood and it's just easy to grind down the Bismarck, Bismarck's historical camo and Hood's camo because campaign is made in a way that people who buy hood will get bismarck easily... (WG being WG here no surprise)

Does that mean I don't have to grind through the ships before Bismarck then? hue I'd take that

I expect it does. Can't see how it isn't a leap frog.

I think this was chosen because of a stale upper tier growth or something.

​Bismarck is the easiest t8 BB imo and this'll bring a lot of new players into the upper tiers

​Current t8-t10 players will be pissed, I know I'm not going to be overly pleased, I was seeing a fairly large reduction in potato teams, but I guess WG has differing opinions. Who knew...
