Benham grind is beyond stupid

The grind is INSANE for Benham.

You have to complete the "Battle for resources" mission chain, which requires you to grind a total of 16.4 million credits in "Savage Battles". This gives you 250 fuel tokens out of 800 required.

I got about 45K credits in 2 battles.... so at that rate I'd need 800 battles in 30 days...... about 27 battles per day. F**k that s**t !

Even the Hill grind is insane. For a T5. PEF grind was dumb, this is simply dumber. Even for me who owns many T8+ ships.

Save your times for Arsenal and FXP ships lol

before... but still. Its NUTS.

If you buy containers to get 800 Fuel the Benham will be over $300 NZD, more than twice what the Georgia cost.

Wow events have long been traps now. It's barely made for casuals and specifically aimed at die hard players/whales. Don't spike your blood pressure and simply play your normal amount of games and then log off.

And the Savage battle mode is not enjoyable, at least for me, so I suspect I will pass.  Shame given the reward is a real as opposed to paper ship.

And as you can see, Grinding her is utterly pointless and it's not big of a deal + the fact that DD players is losing their prosperity.

So yeah, it's a big NO NO.

The credits increase with the upgraded ships.  With flags Im getting between 300-500k creds a game.  I think its fun if you are playing in a div.

The game mode novelty wears off really fast. This will be the first freemium I've missed out on getting.

Is it really worth the effort? Only you can decide. These events are designed for those who dedicate hours of their time every day until the event ends and the final reward may end up disappointing some. 

Don't get me wrong though, I dig the post-apocalyptic and sci-fi genres..but that's in movies and tv.  Savage battles and space torpedo beat battles can get boring after a while.  They're like those arcade games you played as a kid...

On the plus side, the Waterworld theme is kinda neat.

Also on the plus side, it provides some training for knife fighting, something I have traditionally been rather bad at.

And still further on the plus side, if you are used to playing DDs it's not that hard to do well.

On the minus side ... the game mode isn't all that interesting. It's just reflexes and out-juking your opponent, with a little bit of map awareness and DD tag team play thrown in. Sure, it's fast-paced, but that's not actually what I'm looking for in a WoWS game.

Even as a DD main I lost interest after a few games ... and the grind .. Well the grind is not stupid its just greed both on WG's part and those who are too smart to get lured into it

This is the 1st time ever they are giving a T9 ship for free, so this is some sort of a test how much we are willing to sacrifice our live to get it!

Hold on! Did they ever give us ant t8 ship for free before? Cossack doesnt count bcoz we still need to pay for it

I like free ships but dont have the time fo grind it and dont have to money to buy it

Probably I'll grind steel to get black to satisfy my dissapointment later
