Yamamoto Stage 2 rediculous without carrier...

Is it possible clear this stage without playing carriers or repeating stupidly grindy tasks? 

Fine to have an aircraft stage, but the carrier missions need to be balanced with reasonable non carrier missions. 

-Achieving "Clear Skys" (50%) of aircraft, 30+ aircraft kills is impossible in a non carrier unless, a) your own carrier is AFK and b) the enemy carrier is suicidal (or rigged)

-300 aircraft?... using very optimistic numbers, if a carrier shows up 1/4 games, and you average 5 planes down per game...  thats 375 games... or given an 10 min average game including queue time, 62 hrs of continuous play... for 2 stars

The torpedo mission makes no sense at all. This is obviously best done in an agressive DD - when all the other missions in stage encourage CV play...

The other missions are just passive grinders

 

I really like these campaigns, but the missions on this stage don't seem very well thought out...

Fully agree. The only one besides 30K XP (repeat, repeat, repeat, repeat) I have selected is 300 AC. Yep, chip chip chip... I should be done next year.

FINISHED

 

So yes, very grindy, very difficult, totally unobtainable.

 

SAME as the last Yamamoto task, took 3 days: technically less since I spent 2 days on UKBB prep tasks.

 

Now what? 2 more weeks of waiting.... and I didn't even touch a CV for this.

All of the missions are here to stay, no one is forcing you to push through within a day. Just go and grind the stuff a little, the credits and exp stuff aren't too hard, just grindy

+100% xp weekend should help with the xp mission, I do agrre that having each stages missions with the majority requiring certain ship types is ridiculous.

*** NEWSFLASH ***

Apparently you can do the same mission twice and still earn stars the second time through...

Totally unobtainable without a Tier 8 CV or incredible luck. WG please change the Clear Skies mission to one that has a greater chance of being completed by any tier 8 ship. Grindy is better than nigh on impossible unless you are really lucky and the enemy is intent on losing all their aeroplanes on you.

The Yamamoto Campaign is permanent (i.e. it will never go away unless WG wants to). I doubt it's impossible to pass Stage 3 when you have literally unlimited time.

Just repeat the easier missions a few times, and you should be able to unlock the final task.

Seiji,

  thank you for replying.  Not sure what the first sentence is referring to.  I have no problem with there being a Yamamoto campaign, it's actually good.  What I was after was a change to the missions in stage 2 that was causing people problems, especially to those of us who did not know that you could do the same mission twice AND get rewarded for it TWICE!!!

Even you have carriers, you'll have difficulty finishing it all because of enemy CV's divisioning with AA ships. Yeah thanks WG and I'm almost finishing those difficult tasks for CV's like top 1 5x win or lose and I'll be back to sealclub at tier 6.
