Nothing so far from 6 RN Containers :Smile_facepalm:

I remember last time this happened was during French Battleships update - that time bretagne, Normandie and Lyon Dropped out from those containers - from first 5 of those containers that i opened. 

The only regret is, i am missing out on British dd specific directives and rewards associated with it. 

The more you play the game, the lesser RNG based rewards you get like these mission drops and super container luck - just my observation.

Also, remember the normal RN crates in the Arsenal effective cost 7 sov, because you get another 5 sov in the crate - plus the cams and signals. So you can get quite a few chances. Probably worth throwing in for 5 prem RN crates (big RN DD bonus chance), especially if you don't have the RN 10pt guy and quick way to get Galant / Warspite too.

Had quite a bit of fun with Jervis in Co-op. Nice and maneaverable, decent torps and guns, but no speed boost and shortish useful range on main arms.

No, dont get premium containers, as normal containers seem to have really good chance. buy premium when u really feel unlucky.

and for speed boost, No need. You have decent speed already comparing to jap dds, and Your turning speed is 35.5 which is really high, every dd falls down to lower than 32 when trying to turn. so As a compensation of not having engine boost, you actually have 24/7 Better engine. And yeah it has Built in Propulsion Mod same as RN cruisers.

I bought 40 crates and got the t5, 6, and 7. I then used all those sovereigns on other crates until gone. I then bought another 40 crates and did the same with those sovereigns. So far 302 crates and haven't gotten the t8 mission. FML

got the 3 from normal crates, and a unique commander. 

I have not followed/ battled the RN line much at all though I have researched cruisers up to Leander.  Where would you put a unique commander (Dunkirk)?  with a "normal" ship and grind it, or a premium and swap it around other premiums? 

I currently have a 19 point cmdr in the Sims, and move him around the Monaghan, Atlanta, Kidd and even Indianapolis sometimes. (Yes he is setup for AA, but a 19 pointer in a cruiser is better than a 10 pointer in my reckoning) especially in some of the recent scenarios and works well for me.

 This gives me the access to the elite commander XP to boost other commanders in normal ships. The other premium commanders, just sit in the reserve as I don't need them. Now I'm thinking of doing the same with the Dunkirk commander, and work on getting him to lvl 19.

Is this a logical thing to continue with other lines?

I just bought the USS Doe commander with coal (and when I have enough will get the German chap as well). Put him on a premium boat, and smash him to 19 and use him as I do with the current Sims commander?

Is this what some of you guys do?

Same here.

I'm not too sure Acasta really is "better than nothing". Everything seems mediocre to bad, or do I overlook something?

Its only bright spot is its insane maneuverability, and it does not lose speed in turns. You can dance around other DDs in a knife fight like they aren't there.

 

Of course 9/10 times by the time you are knife fighting your are nearly dead....

Well, I guess you want to say that rudder shift is good, because Acasta is slow and has no Engine Boost. Acasta goes 35 knots, Kirov 35.5, Furutaka 34.5.

Yes, considering the small health pool, a knife fight is the last thing you want to be in.

Opened the 1st container of the 2nd part of the RN missions and got the special mission for Icarus.

Looking at the Wiki, Icarus is slow, no Speed Boost, 6km torps.

Considering I have Gallant already, and Gallant looks superior ship in every area, I wonder if there is anything to look forward to in Icarus?

Well Icarus does get 7km torp upgrade, it has quint launchers compared to Gallant's quads, and it has hydro, so arguably its pretty balanced compared to Gallant, although I still prefer the extra 1km range myself as well.

 

I think Jervis might actually be the one that's really screwed though, 7 km torps on a 6.3 km concealment hull at the tier when you start to see lots of radar is not great.
