  1. Yeah, the shadow needs to look like the ship. That is what the judging will be based on.
  2. Thank you for reminding me. LEGO is excluded. After the last contest, realized that LEGO was becoming way too common. So we are excluding it for a while.

  8. Please leave feedback for the following. Other Improvements and Fixes Hide contents We changed the rate of the Inertia Fuse for HE Shells Skill to increase its value for ships with small-caliber guns. Now ships with armament up to 139mm will have -1% to the chance of setting an enemy ship on fire, and ships with gun calibers higher than 139mm will have a -3% chance, of setting an enemy ship on fire, as it originally was. In response to player requests, we set a tier limit on the ships eligible to take part in Operations to tier VI ships only Reduced purchase cost of Commanders with one Skill point from 10,000 to 7,500 Credits Increased short range shooting accuracy for cruisers Erie, Black Swan, Bougainville similar to other tier I ships Fixed Defensive Fire bug: aircraft attack cone now expands properly when the range of Defensive Fire was close to the range of the attack squadrons launching attack Reduced the initial loading time for the Clan and inventory browser. Fixed ability of players in one Division to compliment or report each other Now, you can add players to your contact list or blacklist from the context menu Removed context menu for AI-controlled ships Improved water quality near surface and in the medium or high binocular view Fixed incorrect location of cruiser Makarov in the Naval Base Port Fixed indicator display for unread news in the Port Fixed a Commander retraining bug causing Doubloon icon to display instead of Elite XP Fixed a bug causing 'detected by aircraft' indicator to display when you are detected by a ship Fixed some issues that causing game to freeze when exiting Fixed an issue causing squadrons to take off from carriers without animations Fixed a bug where guns on fourth main caliber turret for Bellerophon intersected the ship hull leading to corrected sight angles and a decrease to the rotating and shooting sector by 3 degrees from all sides Benson: icons on the armament scheme no longer intersect when Hull B and Mk15 mod.3 torpedoes are installed Hero achievements earned in 'Operations' game mode are not calculated towards Battle Hero, Legend of the Seas, and Bane of the Oceans cumulative achievements progress Ship Appearance Changes Hide contents Improved appearance of tier I and II ships with better rendering of thin elements like rigging. This correction won't affect performance: Wickes, Wakatake, Derzki, St. Louis, Kolberg, Tenryu, Bogatyr, South Carolina, Nassau, Kawachi
  9. Please leave feedback for the following. New Content Hide contents Ships Developers, supertesters and other special contributors get to test the Premium Italian tier V battleship Giulio Cesare and Pan-Asian tier VI cruiser Huang He Camouflages and Containers Added a special Container and a unique permanent camo for Soviet tier V battleship Oktyabrskaya Revoluciya (October Revolution) Deep-water Torpedoes Deep-water torpedoes were added for the Pan-Asian ships and carrier Graf Zeppelin for testing. These torpedoes can travel at greater depths than standard torpedoes, and can pass beneath a ship without hitting her, depending on the draft. Torpedoes that will pass beneath a player's ship will be displayed as circle icons for that player. In this case, the sound notification and indicator of approaching torpedoes will not detonate. Torpedoes that pose a threat to a player's ship are still indicated with triangle icons with a horizontal stripe above. When acquiring a target that cannot be hit with deep-water torpedoes, an 'unable to hit target' indication will appear. Underwater torpedoes are detected in the same way as standard torpedoes.
  10. Please leave your feedback for the following. New Resource: Oil Hide contents Oil is a new resource in World of Warships that can only be earned by Clan members. Oil is required to develop a Clan's Naval Base, which provides Clan members with permanent bonuses. In Update 0.6.11, you can earn Oil in two ways: Containers issued or added to your account Completing assigned challenges and combat missions You only get Oil when you earn a Container, not upon opening it or earning enough XP to receive it. You'll see the Oil added to your Clan's account displayed as a system message. Each Clan has its own 'Clan level'. The more Oil obtained, the higher the Clan's level is. In the current iteration, levels will only affect access to buildings, and will serve as a general indicator of how active a Clan is. The whole amount of Oil obtained by a player is added to their Clan's account. The Naval Base Hide contents Every Clan has a Naval Base comprised of a Headquarters, Shipyard, Research Center and Dock. Their specific locations within the base are marked by flags and images. These structures are available by default, although they don't provide any bonuses in their 'default state'. Use Oil to upgrade the buildings and begin receiving bonuses. Only the Commander and Deputy Commander can spend Oil on building and upgrading. To receive bonuses, you must be members of the Clan and obtain a minimum amount of Oil for the Clan, required to gain access to the facilities built ('access').

  12. All prizes have now been credit. Congrats again everyone.
  13. You may also see KA in contests as well.
  14. I don't typically say never when it comes to anything in our game. I will however say that I personally will never credit out Flint, Black, Nelson, Missouri, or any other ship that is an earn-able ship. I rarely give out Kamikaze R as well. You also won't see Ark B or Death Pickle. People had to put in work to earn those and I don't want to make lessen the achievement for doing so.
