Seriously, I know I am The All Day Gamer but this time I've gone too far.

I hate myself.

I want Benham.

And I hate myself.

I am reminded of a story...

Once upon a time there was a man who had too much time on his hands and no friends. So he started stabbing himself in the leg with a fork.
"Ow," he said to himself because no one was listening and no one cared. "This really hurts".
Then he kept stabbing himself in the leg with a fork.
"Ow OW OUCH!" he exclaimed out loud time and time again.
And he kept doing that even though it hurt a lot.

I am that man - so forking stupid.

Just like this game mode... it is forking forked.

I hate myself.

I want Benham.

I hate myself.

there are 3 kinds of people who will get benham through the grind

the ones who grind really really really hard to get it and toss away their sanity for it

the ones who make 3 man fishing divs and farms to their heart's content

the botters

 

which one do you fall under

In all seriousness, this is an utterly c**p mode.

Wargaming needs to give themselves an uppercut.

The forth kind who gets about half the tokens and pays real money to buy the remainder?

That's the majority case, and that's why the events are set up like they are: it's a scaling discount on a ship presented as a "reward". In fact the reward is not the ship, it's the discount on it. Cossack was the first taste of that mechanic, and the difficulty looks to be dialed up even more this time around.

ah, i should have said "purely" but yes you are right, that's been how it's been for a long time, cossack event, lazo, last soviet captain. only hardcore gamers can get them purely through grind but the majority just grind about half and spurge on the rest

 

a good business practice, but not from a consumer standpoint

5th kind....

Yolo rush. Make at least 1 kill (so you can say you've done something) load next ship, repeat. We are grinding credits aren't we? With your WR expected to be half normal it's not worth spending 3x the time for 2x the reward.

Not an all day gamer, but will probably still attempt. We’ll see if I give up or not about halfway through when it becomes apparent I won’t make it without a lot more work.

Honestly though, I don’t like the mode. Interesting concept though. The April Fools torp beats we’re much better.

Players who cannot carry and are not masters of DDs will have no chance at this mode.

Yep Pretty much.

If I wanted to play a fast paced fps there are plenty of other games out there.

The slower style of wows was one of the original attractions to me that and the historical perspective.

I would rather see them spend time to optimize the software upwards of 80% gpu usage on a gtx 1070 just in port ?? 

Or how about some more nations they can pump out the premium's so quick ??

I still hate myself.

25% done.

I need some aspirin.

I'd like to say I have had some intense and close battles.

But it's meaningless AF.

I feel more connection to my bland no name Dallas captain than any of these scum.

if I met any of these filthy scav captains in real life I would press my sawn off double barrel into their faces and let rip.

And as it's a post apocalyptic setting and reliable shotty shells are few and far between, they would fizz, pop and misfire and I'd end up in a savage knife fight and I'd only win because my trusty hound would jump in and save me. Later, after I nearly kill the Yank one (how do you think he got that big head scar...?) and we sort of come to terms, I agree to drive a huge oil tanker to some pacific paradise where they are all going to move too... But they trick me and when the rad mutants finally catch up with me and sink my tanker (after a HOOOGE fight) it turns out my tanker was full of sand! The real fuel was in the OTHER ships! Wait, didn't that already happen...?

It helps if you already have a low opinion of yourself going in.

That and AC-DC and Rob Zombie.

Well, considering that I got Dreadnought, 40 missions in 20 days, In theory this is just a bit more annoying. But it leaves very little room for error.

I’m probably going to end up doing as much as possible, and then buying some crates.

Aaaannnnnnd...

DONE.

Thank fk for that.

That was horrible.

It's a disgusting game mode.

I need a shower and a scrub... down to my bones to get this filthy scum mode off me.

Truly, truly awful.

I know, like a hangover - it's self inflicted pain, but unlike a hangover, hopefully the joy comes AFTER the pain.

*wipes hands clean of worst experience in World of Warships to date*
