Why are there missions in the Indi Marathon that favor certain match types? 

I'm doing the defender, capture etc. x 3 mission tonight and most games are standard battles... perhaps include a opt in key with the knowledge that I'll now only drop into domination or epi games until mission expires or is completed?

I appreciate the effort WG put's into these missions and the fact that we can earn a premium ship, I find that fun even if I'll never really play it, it gives me a reason to log in, but to do this then make it random if your matches will allow you to try to achieve the mission?

I don't see this as well thought out, are the next ones kill 2 dd's? LOL :) First Arp Myoko mission anyone hehe.   

I play casual so 4-5 matches a night, less if I'm getting the special team draw game after game :) Having them be standard battles is not a great time, at any time let alone in a mission that leans towards cap games.

Oh and if anyone who reads this has the authority, please remove standard battles from the game, even without a mission they're boring as it gets generally speaking, they encourage all that is bad in the game and help train newer players in the how to camp the A and 1 line and stay in spawn 101. 

Just had another thought, while waiting for my next match to load, standard battle, thanks for that, I had this odd urge to just exit out grab another ship and try again, of course I didn't do this as I'm a pussy, but I was wondering if WG realize that this is what they're promoting? If so that kinda behavior must be ok? I thought it was bad?

Wargaming didnt force you to complete all the mission =.=

There 26 tasks, you need 21 ONLY , skip if you cant complete the mission.

Ta-da solved.

Wargaming tried to remove Standard Battles a while ago, but there was an outcry from all the camping idiots a large portion of the playerbase. So they compromised by making Standard Battles somewhat less frequent.

But yes, I agree, for Random Battles teams the Domination mode works far better and is generally a lot more fun.

Its hard to believe you are getting standard battles 4-5 in a row. Also, capture may be tough, but defense ribbon is easy to get. Just let enemy DD cap half, then go in and shoot. Or use a radar ship, easy as pie. These missions are designed in was that different ones suit different classes, to make everyone more or less happy. And I think these Indianapolis missions are great.

And what next you say? You could just read the official mission listing. Here, check this link. Next one is earning 7.5k base exp over any number of battles.

In terms of game mode, I would generally agree with you under normal circumstances, but WG screwed up big time with RADAR situation. Given the poor state of destroyers right now, I would say, at times, standard battles feels like at least we have a fighting chance. Its rare these days that DDs survive past first 5 minutes, unless super unicum DD players.

Its just rng and perception bias. Last night I got  3 standards in a row, and it did 'feel' like WG had messed with the mode rotation, but really it is no different to times when you get the same map 3 times in a row. Tears of Desert 3 x in row in a bottom tier cruiser - now when then that happens then you have cause to complain.

 

For these harder / more specific missions I find it is best to just ignore them and then  it just * happens*. That 1750 XP mission, I kept just missing, gave up in my head, day 2 1st game in the Gadjha Madha 2100 XP. Same with the cap reset mission. Gave up in my head, took the Dallas out because I felt like some self abuse and hey presto, 10 cap resets. I think if you are consciously trying to force the result to match a desired outcome it just screws up your gameplay.

*edit* okay I just re read the OPs original post. When WG changes the game to suit what you want , please let me know. Because when that happens I am pretty sure WG will also be giving everyone all the Tier 10 ships in game for free... ;)

Its just RNG mate.

Grats on the win :)

17 outa 21 ATM, did one very quick :) Standard battle then got a domination but got bogged down at the cap. Tried to do the DD thing as mentioned above, they had 4 radar to our 1 and 3 of them were at my spawn cap LOL, we killed them and won but their dd's just didn't want to come into the cap lol, nor did their cruisers or BB's, it was weird, if they had pushed we would probably have folded, no where to hide with see through smoke but i would have been able to get the defense hits.

Oh well, as mentioned above who really cares I guess, BUT I'd like to complete it successfully otherwise why bother? I had a defend situation in a match last night and got heaps of cap resets but my team felt it would be good to go chase a couple enemies up to the 1 line then sail along the 1 line while their fleet was capping our base, we lost so no good :)

thing is that dont push yourself to get these mission done

in some of these task its better to have a certain ship like the 1750xp i done it with sims but all of these missions i done them by playing normally

the more you force it they wont give it to you lol

LOL yea feels that way sometimes.

Just finished, yay :) Went out with my Perth, got a domination and assisted in capping all 3 bases hehe.

Our enemy was good enough to all go to one cap, then run away from all the others and there was time to go all the way across capping on the way lol.

Granted it was a CV match and ours dominated theirs due to skill level, so I almost ran out of time with our CV killing everything that moved :) 

Even going flat out I was only able to get 12k dmg as there weren't any ships in range, pitiful input from me but mission done so all good :) Capping wins games as Aeroon would say.
