Curious question about PvE scenarios

So after trying the scenarios, I noticed that all the enemies are either IJN or KM ships or both, while all friendly AI ships are USN with the sole exception of the Schors in that convoy rescue mission.

The question is why though. Are USN ships not fun to fight against? What about the other VMF ships and the RN and MN?

Is there some strange anti-Axis thing going on or is it some AI programming thing?

Personally I would like to go up against a larger variety of ships. I am a bit tired of shooting Kumas and Furutakas in almost every scenario.

I wonder that to.

However , Axist is the loser IRL here so it is way easier to portrait without someone scolding you than choosing US or Soviet or GB whose fanbois will wreck you in a chat outbreak.

Personally though , i dont like it , scenrarios should be keep as realism as much as possible as long as they are balance. It is fun to role play.

These missions could have based on real life naval mission from the view of one side , its objective , whats really happen and with a uniform ( single) opposition or add in an alternative what if so that these missions branch into different path for following up missions and end with different rewards for a single very large campaign.

Ex : the IJN suprise attacks on Pearl Harbour  , you can either tilt toward retreating or more yolo action

I think you'll find that the missions are similar to events that happened in WW2 and the German and Japanese were deemed to have been the aggressors of the time. As such it'll be easier for them to create new scenarios with them as the opposition without to much thought going into it. However as it seems to be an unmitigated success you can expect a lot more variety and effort put into them. 

Imagine battle of midway! Battle of Surigao straits, or defend Task force Z against wave after wave of planes! even a fictional scenario like the Tirpitz's great escape from the fjords (dd's and cruisers only to protect the Tirpitz from air attacks and the british fleet!) the options are unlimited. Change the tier and have a battle of Jutland with tier 3 ships! How about a tier X one based on Operation ten go! 

It's early days and I'm expecting to see big advances in them in the months ahead.

It's just the first season of scenario, I'm expecting something more exciting and reflect historical events better.

And I totally agree with you on being frustrated shooting Kuma, Furutaka, Aoba and Myoko all the time, I can even remember their armor layout and how to citadel them in my dreams, sooooooooooooo many of them… And IJN HE has high alpha and fire chance, very disgusting. Ouch IJN CA burning me.jpg

Yeah I guess this first iteration was just a trial run so they didn't put much thought into it. It just seems weird to me that all 4 scenarios use 2 nations as enemies, when WoWs has many other nations. Was wondering what the underlying reason was. Well, I am looking forward to future scenarios having enemies from different nations.

I believe WG will make harder scenarios one day, where team is 100% needed. Right now, 7 semi-skillful individuals can get a win. 

Lets see how the dunkirk scenario goes.

It's now the hidden headquarters of PETI, people for the ethical treatment of Izumo. And playing Zao is not treating Izumo ethically. (I'm just frustrated with all those reports I received for division triple Zao with [ZAO] tag)
