I thought I'd do one of these, for the first time ever. Throughout this coming event, I will be posting my progress in it here. If I get any Op Orders, I will log it here, if I complete any of them, I will log it here, and perhaps post my initial hangar thoughts on it first, and then when I've played 10 or so battles in it, post my full thoughts.

 

 

Anyone is welcome to comment on my progress and my thoughts on the missions(and planes, if I get any) and make suggestions, and if you want to post your progress in this coming event here, feel free to do so.

 

 

Regards, Legoboy0401

Update: 1 Supply Crate earned, one Operation Order(for the Tier VIII Ju-288 C).

 

 

This looks MOSTLY doable, but the timeframe to do it in looks very challenging, especially if I can't play more than 2 hours a day. We'll see what I end up doing. Will I ignore it, attempt and fail, or the holy grail, attempt and succeed?

 

 

Stay tuned to find out.

I am on mission 9 now. Almost a third of the way through. Had to skip the Akamatsu medal one however.

so what did you do to destroy the armored sections of ground targets?  i've used my attack aircraft and bombers and destroyed everything on the map, light/med/heavy armored targets and haven't gotten credit for anything, and yes i'm using t4 and above aircraft...other than more wg'g screwing over their player base, not sure what else i can do

My strategy was to farm Strongholds with American B-series Heavy Bombers(in my case, the B-17D). But all 35 need to be destroyed IN ONE BATTLE, so remember that fact.

I'm on part 11 now. I highly doubt I will be able to finish it at this rate(though I extended it by two more days), but if I fail, know that I tried my absolute darnedest to complete it.

 

On Mission/part 10,(Doolittle) MM screwed me over twice, and a black screen on queuing screwed me over once, but switching from my Do 217 M to my B-17D quickly sorted out the issue in my very first attempt at Mission/part 10 in my B-17D.

I managed to knock out the heavy fighter missions in about 2 hours the first night

4 easy supply chests. Unfortunately every time i tried to open one the UI crashed.
Running in safe mode circumvented the issue. but having to restart the game each time means i have no idea what was in the chests.
(no op orders. i checked that first)

Today i have been Flighted up with GAA/MR combo.
which worked out ok when i was GAA. we muck about and eventually each get 5 wins in our category.
Farming broken target sections was  also fairly simple.  A bit grindy but not so bad.
It is easy to take out 30-50 sections at a time with a zero in over-watch throughout the game..
Yet; no matter how well i seemed to do, i just could not do better than a grade 3 game...

So it was time for a break and we switched roles.
My flight mate saw what a specialized Stuka can do (especially with HEAP ammo) so gave that a go and i was over watch in a Wildcat.
A Stuka and a Wildcat flip caps quick. But dont necessarily do so well up-tiered.
So switching out has made things more troublesome.

just getting the last two wins has been wearing my patience (two hour of play just to get the last two wins.).
But they finally happened (after a stretch of Fw 190 and Typhoon) and now im grinding out Fighter/MR kills and getting ever closer to unlocking a Corsair in the process.
Just gotta pay attention to what im doing when the get those grade 4 and 3 badges so i can gun for that grade one.

All in all,  a fair bit of fun. I get 8 supply chests out of the deal. And managed to grind out some planes i had been meaning to "get around to"

Next week: Bomber Escort!

Fair warning. My success rate at speculative guesswork is much like my WinRate. Hit or Miss.

Part 13 I think, though it might be 14(I forget).

 

Ran headlong into the first "in any number of winning battles" mission, and not only could I not get the mission's goal done on a win, I couldn't even GET the mission's goal done on losses. I lost all the matches anyways, but in only one did I kill a Multirole fighter. The rest I just got spanked by higher tier, much faster planes with better players behind the controls and didn't even kill a SINGLE ANYTHING, LET ALONE A Multirole fighter.

I won 4 games in the last hour to get the 100 Gold n my specialized KI-102 heavy.

Finished the Light fighter and Bomber missions completely.

Fun event, but tying WINS to MISSIONS can get really depressing for me.

One pilot cannot "carry" a team in this game. ( IMO )

Be Well,

Gunny

I got the 100 gold and the 1st supply crate.

Could not get the Class 4 medal in any of my multi-roles.

But finished the Bomber and the Fighter missions and got the 100 Gold in the last hour in my KI-102 heavy.

Last  2 supply crates gave me OP Orders for both the T7 and T8!

5 Class Wins - Total Gold = 500

Supply crates purchased with tokens earned  = 2

Between you and me, these Operation Orders SUCK, BIG-TIME, AND ANY BUGS THAT YOU ENCOUNTER THAT RUIN INDIVIDUAL BATTLES FOR YOU WHILE TRYING TO DO THE OPERATION ORDERS JUST INCREASE THE LENGTH OF THEIR GRIND.

I don't think I have a chance in the world of being able to finish this. I have one more day left, and two more hours to attempt to finish it with, but we all know that's not going to end in anything but a failure.

 

 

Well, what can I say. I will probably post my thoughts on the Ju-288 C here around June, by which point I may have gotten it finally by grinding through the Ju-288 A.

 

But there IS still tomorrow, so I will reserve judgement, though such is not really warranted.

you can burn tokens to extend the time limit.

At 50 gold per token. I think its 5 tokens for another 24 hours.

Or you can turn off the crew training acceleration in the tier 6 Do 217M and start stockpiling xp
(That specialist 20% xp bonus will come in handy)  for the eventual release of the tier 7,

 or any other elite/premium plane for that matter and burn gold to convert it into 'free' xp

Basically you leverage either your massive skill and/or massive wallet to over come the grind/pay wall and get about a month or so of access to high tier planes before the rest of the player base.

LOLOL... I have OP orders for both the T7 and T8 but that is what I am doing..

Just playing my DO217 and gaining XP for the release of the T7.

Good advice from a veteran forum helper.

Thanks!

already did, but it's for 48 hours(but I don't even have a single Tier VIII yet so I have a tiny stockpile of tokens), and anyways I believe I have lost the Op Order now anyways.

Update: I failed it, but by refusing to grind it anymore after running into the first "in any number of wins" mission, and refusing to extend it(such would have just prolonged my misery).

 

I'm done with trying out Operation Orders in this event, and I highly doubt I will try to complete any I get in Red Comet in May, either. I think Tier IV, V, and VI ones would be better for me, so I am waiting perhaps until the Stuka DB line(which may have Tier IV, V, and VI planes in it) to try again to complete an Operation Order.
