Benham seems to be a scary ship with an impressive torpedo broadside, but tiny HP pool for tier (even worse than Hull A Fletcher) and will get rekt so hard and fast in CV matches.

I don't think I want this ship so I won't even bother. I need to take it easy from holding a computer mouse in general because of ulnar nerve entrapment.

But what about you fellow forum dwellers? Will you grind all the way through the event to get 800 Fuel Tokens without paying a cent?

 

The Hill, though...

Try using a vertical mouse there's a few different types around and wildly varying prices. Weird to use at first but you get used to it.

I use an M618 deluxe cheap Chinese one but it does the job or Ankar do one is well

I hate myself.

As a qualified All Day Gamer, certified Madman and closet hypocrite, I will be trying to get Benham in this event.

I know.

I would rather grind for Siegfried or any other new German premium in a properly themed event but, yes, I will try to get Benham.

I have too many US ships/captain and US DDs NOT to want to add it to my fleet.

And as others have said, "a 'free' bote is a 'free' bote"... and I am time rich, cash poor.

I hate myself.

I guess I will just lie back and think of Uncle Sam.

No, i haven't been able to grind out any free ships ever during token or special resources events due to working a full time job, which allows me to pay the devs wages, but apparently not enough to get me the coolest stuff in the game like Stalingrads. Turns out all devs want is your TIME and not your MONEY.

Yeah, I dunno. I will probably go with @Max_Battle ‘s attitude of “free ship” and let my obsessive compulsion go from there.

While I will definitely go for the T5, I may waiver on the Benham depending on difficulty and effort required. Also depends on the exact requirements.

Being dedicated to grinding all non CV lines, events like this which have custom modes with their own ships cut into my grind time. If some of the requirements can be met in normal battles. Then fine.

I've just had a couple of games in it.

Annoying AF.

Worst mode for playing with random noob pugs.

"You are the last hope" on many occasions already...

Not sure if can endure.

Oh great, a mode focused on carrying, and me with a bad back.

That's obvious. 

Me? Rather one of them than BOTH.

Me too, even though the individual missions are a lot for just a tier FIVE. This is PEF Directives, but proportionally even worse.

Oh, the concept is fine from playing in PT earlier. It's just as well you make it into a battle royale free for all instead. Like everyone for themselves. No need for teamwork. Oh wait, that mode already exists... it's called random isn't it....

At least people in Battle Royale mode don't blame other people for not teamworking.

That depends on how tedious the grind can be. The last one I went full non-lifer, it was the grind for P. E. Friedrich. I skipped Exeter because I could tell she's not worth my efforts after the "rebalancing" a.k.a. removal of her smoke.

Looks very tedious so far. I want to skip this Update already, playing minimally while waiting for Siegfried.

I'm enjoying Path of Exile's newest league.

I'm going to take the semi-easy way out: Grind what I can and top it up. Mainly because specs-wise it can be nasty especially in T9 ranked without CV. Also, I don't mind having a T9 Shimakaze with better RoF guns like it should.

No. I failed to get Lazo and Nikolay Kuznetsov.

I don't expect a success grinding another one.

I'd rather buy something else more useful

You can get the Hill if you grind... Benham if you grind so hard you have no life anymore.

Is there really any point in getting Benham when it can be nuked by CV's so easily? .... I don't play any of my high tier DD's anymore because they are just easy meat for enemy CV.

Depends on how much time I'll be required to put into it. Anybody knows how much tokens can be earnt per day with average effort?

In general, I have minimal interest. I already own Black and Alaska so another T9 is probably not necessary. I'll definitely get Siegfried though, but it'll most likely be sold in armory.

There are total 850 free tokens up for grab as per wg calculations. That is if you complete everything.
