  1. Sup. Remember when I used to ask you folks for Community stuff? Well, the Scoop rides again! From now until Aug. 24, 10:00 PT (13:00 ET), I'm accepting submissions of your fantastic T-61 content! Here's the kinda stuff I like to see in Community Scoops Spicy memes (still images or GIFs) Humorous videos Serious reviews and write-ups of the ship Upgrade/Commander build recommendations Cool/funny anecdotes of you winning/sucking with T-61 in battle Just some things to keep in mind: Make sure your submissions still adhere to Community standards Keep your use of copyrighted/licensed content to a minimum -- a brief reaction shot, GIF, or sound byte from something is probably fine, but an entire scene from a movie will get me clawed by our legal eagles (yes, they're literal eagles). Share Your Submissions Below!
  2. Steam Bundles still there?

    To help clarify: All the "Steam" bundles are running through the 11th. However, they have a "limit one" restriction, so those who've purchased a bundle already won't be able to see that bundle in the shop. While they're all sorta-connected to a promotion happening on Steam, the bundles you see in the Premium Shop should be purchasable by anyone.
  3. Hey, everyone! Steve here again, this time soliciting your best, basic battle tips for the...uh...less-than-spectacular battle buddies you've had in battle. We had some great submissions for our #relatable moments list, and hope to get the same #clickworthy results as last week! Share your tips below, and focus more on "dos" than "don'ts"! Thanks for hearing me out and welcome to FishFeed!Sincerely, Steve D. HamsFishFeed Editor-in-Chief Follow on Twitter!
  4. Hey, everyone. I'm Steve. I'll be taking over for TheURLGuy's duties and account while he's out on an April sabbatical. You might've seen the first item in our FishFeed #trending content series on Sunday. Anyway, we want our next piece of #clickworthy content to revolve around #relatable moments from your World of Warships battles! You can share 'em here, tweet them at me, or just get the conversation going on other channels (Reddit, etc.) Thanks for hearing me out and welcome to FishFeed! Sincerely, Steve D. Hams FishFeed Editor-in-Chief Follow on Twitter!
  5. Sup. Lots of cool stuff is happening this time of year - the Duke of York Campaign, Santa Claus: Legion, new shooty botes, and, most importantly, the glorious introduction of SHIP HORNS in Update 0.6.15! There's so much goin' down...and the next Community Scoop is going to cover it all! Share your stuff on the following topics - it could be featured on WorldofWarships.com! Duke of York Campaign Santa Claus: Legion December's new Premium ships (Vampire, Duke of York, Ashitaka, etc.) Ranked Battles - Season 8 Here's the kinda stuff I'm looking for Short text (about 1 paragraph) Video Spicy memes I'm giving y'all plenty of time over the holidays to experience new stuff, write your takes, make your videos, and/or craft your memes. You can submit stuff in this thread until January 8, 09:00 PT (12:00 ET)!
  6. Community Scoop Submissions - USS Kidd Sup. I've returned for more Scoop and moving them to Tuesdays! Y'all get the drill at this point -- share your QUALITY, CUTTING-EDGE CONTENT in this thread before Monday 11/20 at 12:00 PT for a shot at being featured on the World of Warships site! Here's the kinda stuff I'm looking for: Videos In-depth reviews of Kidd Cool footage of you winning in Kidd Hilarious footage of you sucking in Kidd Short Text (1 paragraph or less) Your take on Kidds strengths and weaknesses Kidd battle tactics Commander/Modification loadouts Retelling of a cool moment from a battle with Kidd Spicy Kidd memes, GIFs, shenanigans, etc. SPICE ADVISORY: Our legal eagles consider images directly from movies/shows/etc to be TOO SPICY for WorldOfWarships.com. Your memes and such are much more likely to make it through if you stick to game footage, public domain assets, stock photography, and/or original art. Have fun!
  7. Hi, I've redeemed the code, got the flag, but didn't see the Fire from the Gods challenge activated.

    1. TheURLGuy


      Have you played a battle yet? The mission assignment should once you've fought a battle after code redemption. 

    2. Shaun_Hastings


      yep, just won 1 random battle 


  8. "Message from Beyond" solution

    No. All registration did was (supposedly) give the Credit Missions. The only purpose of Credit missions was to provide the number clues to decode via the number grid. The "Fire from the Gods" mission is given out via a separate trigger linked to the redemption of the bonus code. Anyone can redeem this code whether or not they participated in the Credit mission.
  9. "Message from Beyond" solution

    It's not just a flag this time around. Try fighting a battle after redeeming the code and see what happens. ;)
  10. "Message from Beyond" solution

    That's one version of the autokey cipher. The other version is where the "keystream" is a smaller keyword repeated.
  11. "Message from Beyond" solution

    Final Hints (I Promise) Whatever you get out of the final cipher will be a redeemable bonus code you can enter here for the final prize. Y'all are on the right track using "fire" with the tabula recta. You've already encountered the phrase to be decoded. The decoded bonus code will be a jumble that doesn't spell anything, so you'll just have to give it a try. Happy Hunting!
  12. "Message from Beyond" solution

    Aight, so it might be awhile for the mission/event folks to clear this up. Since this is screw-up on my end, I'll give you a free hint to help move things along: You don't need to complete the missions to advance/solve anything. Any hints/codes/whatever are in the mission descriptions/rewards themselves and have already been shared by other players.
  13. "Message from Beyond" solution

    Just to clarify: nobody gets an email. The email address is used in combination with the Wargaming account as validation to disperse the Credit missions. (If you got the missions, you should get a pop-up message in-game when they activate after fighting a battle.) However, it doesn't seem to be triggering for some folks. I'm checking the final list that was used to generate the missions, and it looks like some folks that are on the list still aren't getting the missions (including myself, oddly enough). I'll continue looking into it and keep y'all updated.
  14. "Message from Beyond" solution

    The Credit missions others have already posted are the thing you get for registering at the Aliens Exposed page. I'll still go through the list anyway, because I want to see how things went south so I know better for future events. (Already, though, it just seems like the issue is with me failing to clarify that the email needed to be the one linked to your Wargaming account.)
