Not sure how I feel about the 'Random Operations' for PUG play, but I suppose it makes a change from players min-maxing OotW (and some who try and still manage to fail)... and I'll get to play the ops I've not yet experienced (Hermes, Cherry Blossom etc.).

A part of me wishes there was 'Op of the Week' and 'Random Op' as a choice, but that might skew the queue somewhat. *shrug*

It's been so long since I last played those ops, since anyone played them (apart from PTS) that it will be interesting, especially given the new format. Traditionally, I used to play cruisers a lot more in the operations, so I'll be finding out if this is still a viable option, hoping it is.

Most us as players justly moan about decisions made by Wargaming but this time Wargaming you have have done good! 

The  majority of your customers love the new operations. It gives the ability of the player to grind their T6-T8 line not in ransoms with are too fickle with match making and team selection.

Also thank you Wargaming for the people with large fleets in providing festival tokens to reduced the grind in us getting all our rewards.

Do you remember when this was but a far off dream in a fantasy world we could never touch?

I never wanted BBs or DDs in Cherry Blossom though, just cruisers of all nations 😶

We now, BTW, have even more motivation to play the operations as WG has announced the subs are ready for their full introduction to the game.

Same as Max. If they can satisfy the sub sycophants and us the reasonable players, there wouls be fewer negative feedback.

However, never allow ourselves to be ignorant of the world, like frogs in a well.

I'm not too worried about subs. They've basically been free for ages, and I still don't see them much at high tier. Maybe being in tech tree will increase their frequency, but I still don't think they're that popular.

As far os random operations. Yeah, I think its really good for operations and the game in the long run. It will be great for grinding my T6's and 7s, but especially my T8s as it will be easier than in randoms.

I still have to get used to the "random" part of random ops... makes it impossible to take the best ship for the job, especially if you're pugging.

I guess I'm just a little melancholy about how the easy grinding of the old ops is gone, but I'll get over that with all the new opportunities.

And you'll still always get those pugs that suck, so no real change there.

I just wish you were able to do ALL missions in operations.

Because the recent changes and implementation of submarines is motivated by greed.

It would not be unpopular or negatively recieved if the changes and implementation of submarines is motivated by fun.

From the looks of the rewards, WG basically copy pasta the reward pattern from Convoy 1, Convoy 2 (Derby), Key Battle, and the Recent Savage Battle.

Not complaining though.

Except for the last mission which requires 50k BXP. That used to be around 25k-ish or 30k-ish.

Or

There was a 25k / 30k then 50k (?).

I'm not going to bust a gut trying to get that 50k base xp. Too many dockyard directives require battles in co-op and randoms (and exclude operations). But i definitely will get at least 1 operations win every day. Those community tokens are nice. I exchange them for the 3 resource containers as they accrue. Extra coal, flags and oil.

Rewards and ops specific missions are fine.

Other combat missions, such as the dockyard, are still hit or miss. You can do some in scenarios, but not others.

Yes, I know this is because certain missions would be too easy in scenarios, but still, it is a detractor from playing them and it annoys me.

Day Two of "New" Operations

1. Loving the variety of ships I can use. I have many ships that aren't very satisying for me in either Coop (too slow to get into combat fast enough) or PvP (I'm not comptetant/confident in them or I just plain suck in them 😛 ) that are fun to use in Operations now. This has multiplied my enjoyment of my fleet. So good.

2. I think many people are underestimating the increased power of the bot fleets! Do not doubt the power of New Skynet! Be like John Connor!

3. I think many people haven't played the "old-new" ops 😛 - Forgive them the learning curve!

It is by design.

 

Someone in WG knows that operations are popular and absolutely hate operations with a passion, and is in a state of denial.

Had a decent result today. MM gave me Newport. The big red bote was a buffed Yamato. Pumped HE into him to burn his dam con, them poked holes in him with 6 torp hits, only to have a fort steal the kill just as I got the other side torps in the water and almost into him as well.
