I think I found and easter egg in WoWs. In the Naval Base Port look select a Battleship and look toward its stern [starboard side] at the top of the building behind it. There you will find a light that is transmitting a short message in morse code.
I think it goes like this: -….--.-.-…-.-.-
No spaces for letters and the pattern repeats. Anyone want to help me figure it out?
 
Possible First letters:

B -...

D -..

N -.

T -

 

I am starting by exploring the possible "B" starts.

 

Attached is a Word Doc with this info in it and a table of Morse/Alphabet conversions. 

 

Good luck! Please post discoveries and updates on this thread.

 First letter is clearly a "B" and I think I cracked the code, it seems to be a subliminal message.

 "Buy more premiums."

B -... cannot be followed by Y -.-- from this code...but good guess :D

Well it doesnt start with B,,,Next letter would be either a G, M, Q, Z, T, none of which would follow a B

I get: 

E  .

A  .-

W .--

as the only possible letters to follow 'B'.

Since after you account for 'B' you are left with: .--.-.-...-.-.-

If it starts with a D, 2nd letter could only be an A or E.

is no one thinking in Russian??

 

 

I had not. But I started this thread for things like this.

I haven't had time to do much more with this yet. Nor do I speak any Russian. If you do please feel free to take a stab at a Russian translation.

The message reads:  T 4 T A A V A A

.....and the letters are as follows:-

Dah = T

Dit-dit-dit-dit-dah = 4

Dah = T

Dit-dah = A

Dit-dah = A

Dit-dit-dit-dah = V

Dit-dah = A

Dit-dah = A.

I was having trouble determining the spacing that distinguished the individual letters...are you confident that this is the correct spacing?        -   ....-   -   .-   .-   ...-   .-   .-

Well, although a bit rusty on my Morse (and CW usage) I was able to read it after a couple of passes.

But yes, the spacing between letters appears to be correct and in accordance with the guidelines for Morse signalling...., as is the spacing between the dits & dahs.

But having said that....if the Russian sending the message isn't familiar with the conventions then I may be totally incorrect! :)

I tried that in the "Redeem Code" section, just as a thought...

It is not a Wargaming Code, for anyone who was wondering.

Great! Thanks for the help! Now to figure out if this is just random gibberish or if it has meaning....

Maybe it's a cryptic "Thanks for the ? and ? ? ? "

-….--.-.-…-.-.-

 

What if it's Russian morse code?

 

-.. д

.- a

.-. p

-..- ь

.-.- я

 

I think it spells "Dasha" in Russian morse code

дарья перова

 

 

nah, that would be too easy and the . and - don't add up anyways.

 

oh, and here, I recorded it for easier deciphering. (hint: use slow motion if it goes by too fast)

Regardless of whether it is Russian, Chinese, Zambian or any language, the characters are the same and are based on the "English" alphabet.

There is no Cyrillic Morse code, nor Mandarin, nor Japanese, nor Arabic....nor Klingon.

Become educated.

Thank you.

In that case allow me to correct the message as I read it from the flashes:- T 4 T A A V A A

Oh look! The Cyrillic characters equate to those Latin characters used in Morse! :amazed:

(Shakes head).

 

As I said....there is NO Cyrillic Morse code. There are only additional "bits" used for special non-Latin characters.
