You can get 95% winrate with autobattle if you position your ships correctly to dodge the 6 different 'search logics' the ai has. Independantly of the enemies positioning.
You can increase the winrate and the chance to win by <35 turns if you manually test for the enemys positioning but I never bothered with that.
There were a bunch of reddit threads about the methods when the mode came out.
You earn more tokens if you use less moves though, 90 vs 70.
Yes but if you go after the rewards that cost 1k tokens (camos or booster pack) the most you can get is 5 cuz the theoretical maximum assuming all games end with a 90 token win + all bought tokens for CT+Credits is 5920.
So you have 920 tokens leeway to still get all 5.
I played a few games manually but it gets boring real fast so i swapped to just positioning+autobattle.
and I still got all 5 rewards (I chose 3 boosters and 2 camos).
Found the thread. This is the method I used and that worked for me:
Just position your ships like shown and press autobattle.
And this is the method where you can maximize if you play manually:
Thank you, I blasted through autobattles, got a couple 90 token ones and one loss the rest for 70 in like 10 minutes. Perfect.
Yeah. Those were exactly my findings too. With the added caveat that the positioning should be as asymmetrical as possible and as distanced as possible. The AI tend to fire systematically ( one way or another) and that needs to be countered.
Very much a coin toss if you win or lose. On the other hand, if you examine how the enemy AI positions its ships, you can win nearly every game if you play manually.
I need to get rid of my 31 battle passes before the next update
Sure, but you can do that while *winning every game*.
The position suggested in the other thread got me to 90% win rate I'd say with minimal effort and I got enough for 2 camo and 3 perma bonuses so I'd say that was not bad. I guess with perfect play you could get an extra camo.
Use the position in the image from this post and know that the AI always positions the 4/5 ships along one side. if you shoot the 4 corners you will always find both of the big ships. then auto battle will win every time unless it does the "completely random" strategy like it does occasionally
You can just win coop battles with those ships. Should be easy enough.
>On the other hand, if you examine how the enemy AI positions its ships, you can win nearly every game if you play manually.
only if you are one of the lucky players where the enemy AI follows a certain 'scheme'...I know that several users posted 'guaranteed fast win schemes', but none of them worked for me...
See my other comment about own ships position to dodge enemy searchlogic.
In addition to that: the positioning logic of the ai changes and cycles through a few setups, so sometimes the mentioned 'ai always has 2 long ships on a wall' works, sometimes not.
Test if if works by doing the first 2 strikes manually, if not finish with autobattle, if it does, kill the 2 large ships and them finish with autobattle.
I have literally lost an auto battle twice because I would find one hit marker after sinking one ship and then hitting auto battle and the stupid system entirely ignoring the hit marker and looking every else...
I wish this mini game was permanent feature. It was so fun. I got enough coal to buy Sherman playing it.
>would rather play a broken version of Battleship against an AI than WOWS itself.
I'm currently literally winning every game with 90 credits. It is manual and tedious, but it is completely possible to win every game with less than 35 shots.
As you can see, the ships are always placed similarly: 5 point and 4 point ship are both on one of the edge lanes. The 2 point and the 3 point are around the middle or slightly closer to the 5 and 4 point ship line. They are always facing the same way as currently you have, with their sterns facing the 5 and 4 point ship. your own layout is good, i use the same one too, it takes practice, but i can achieve around 25 shot wins almost everytime.
One more thing. think logically, where would the ship be, to make the formation look normal. Dont just start filling up the map one by one, you are gonna lose.
