I see.. hoping those 5 tasks out of view don't require PEF so i can do some of them to replace credit tasks which I don't have any suitable ships to do reasonably quickly in.

The others are for France, PEF or Italy, PEF or Poland, PEF or Commonwealth, PEF or Pan-America

So do i, the only ship I have is France... Ggwp 

 

I ain't wasting my time for a tier 6 premium. Srsly i would rather complete RN directives for cossack rather than those nation restricted jokes. 

 

But yeah WG make that harder so ppl will get PEF by paying cash, i have seen many sailing around in CO-OP ytd.

This is getting tempting... Do we know for certain they will give 6,800 doubloons compensation when you earn it from PEF Event. Why I ask is that I got the 6,800 doubloons figure from what it says they will compensate you if you buy it from the Premium Store.

It is up to you to decide what to do with your money. I've done the economics of it so far and it is indeed very tempting. As I mentioned to my clan, WG may be terrible when it comes to making questionable decisions such as CV rework and MM bias, but when it comes to economics, they should be nominated for the Nobel Prize in Economics.

I have absolutely zero interest in "Pan-Asia" ships. My tier 1 got deleted for a port slot the day it arrived (I think, I don't even remember seeing it there now). I'm also not going to buy any Polish, Italian or Commonwealth ships.

So, that leaves me with Japan (easy, with Atago), USA (Sims, or any of my other US ships), Germany (can do, have 4 including Scharnhorst), UK (Have 3 including Cossack and Belfast so no probs). My Frenchies are only my Super Container gifted De Grasse and an unlocked, but un-purchased  Saint Louis. I could grind the De Grasse but... 4 million? ech. USSR leaves me with Moskva (harbor queen, currently stripped of upgrades used on other ships) and some low tier DD. 

So, I'd need to re-purchase a profitable Soviet tech tree ship or play the Moskva, which I struggle with and don't really enjoy. And continue grinding the Saint Louis or De Grasse, neither of which I'm really interested in either. 

What about people that are even more time constrained and have fewer ships in port? 

Pay wall. Money grab. Con job... there are other words I could think of to describe this as well. Games are supposed to be fun, that's what keeps gamers coming back.

It was already hard enough to complete their infamous 3 month long Royal Navy directives.  Bold of WG to assume we'll spend our holidays grinding 24/7 for a T6 BB. 😁

Since I'm a free player I only look forward to ship lines and freemium ships (free xp/Coal ships). If I see a ship I realistically cannot get, I'll skip. I don't exactly salt over free stuffs, but sometimes whose "free" stuffs aren't as easy to get as it sounds.

I also want a German DD line with 150 mm guns. It's possible to do.

Lewd. Well actually i ain't salt for freemiums but the missions to get it is not as easy as i tot. New players like me dont have 1000 camos or 1000 flags to stack with, i have only 5 special flags each and dynamo Ops is my savior. But yeah, no pain no gain.

Actually, looking into it a little deeper, it does not state how many directives are required for the last week. The 6 missions from the previous directive refers to the 2nd last directive. It may be 1 or may be 8. You may have to complete 4,000,000 credits in a Błyskawica :Smile_izmena:. I suspect it will be 1, maybe 2 directives, which would be OKish.

Anyone know anyone who knows for sure?

My captain skills and upgrades for KM BBs

**Note: I reconfigured my captain skills when I transferred my captain from Scharnhorst to Bismarck.  Since Bismarck's main guns are awful at long ranges, I removed all the previous upgrades and focused on improving the secondaries  (which are awesome and can cause great damage to cruisers/bbs even at  a 9km distance) So I chose my upgrades accordingly, a manual secondaries control skill (the fourth one under endurance) will improve the aim and prevent dispersion. On average you'll get atleast 150x secondaries ribbons in a battle, ie. if you get close enough to your enemy. 

PS. Bayern has meh-ish main guns as well, so these skills just might work!

It's 6 directives.

with 7 "tech tree" nations to choose from.

If you already bought the PeF you can grind 5 in parralell (4 x gold ships only nations or PeF, and Germany).

Exactly my thought when I first saw the directive. 

NOPE.

That is some crazy grind. I decided to buy the PEF because I was planning on buying it anyway even before it was made into a reward ship.

But also because I wanted a headstart and easier time on the various campaigns. I figured giving myself only a week or so to complete the last stage of the directive AND the PEF campaign is not good for my health or sanity.
