Snowflakes

New Year is a winter holiday, and in many countries it snows pretty heavily during this time of the year! You can expect snowfalls in World of Warships, too! Snowflakes, a new in-game event, will bring you Coal and Steel for use in the Arsenal.

In Update 0.7.12 Snowflakes will appear on many of your ships. They work like stars, that give you a one-time daily bonus for a victorious battle. Snowflakes, however, can be blown off your ships only once during Update 0.7.12.

Snowflakes will be displayed in the ships carousel in the Port next to stars, so you can easily see whether you have received your bonus for a certain ship or not. If a Snowflake is still there, it's high time to "knock it down"!

The event will be available for all players, but keep in mind that in order to use the resources in the Arsenal you need to have reached at least Level 8 in your Service Record. Snowflakes will appear on researchable ships of Tiers V to X, as well as on Premium and event ships of Tiers II to X. Ships obtained in Update 0.7.12, i.e. those purchased, bought, or received in containers, will provide the New Year bonus, too.

To get the bonus, simply win one Co-op, Random, Ranked or Scenario Battle. Blowing off Snowflakes will be rewarded with Coal and Steel. The type and amount of the resources varies depending on the type and tier of each ship.

Please note that if you get 0 XP for a battle, a Snowflake is not treated as "blown off" and remains on the ship.

Plain text amounts in case pic doesn't load:

Tier VIII-X Premium ship: 200 Steel.

Tier IX Tech tree ship: 50 Steel.

Tier X Tech tree ship: 100 Steel.

Tier II-IV Premium ship: 300 Coal.

Tier V Premium ship: 400 Coal. Tech tree ship:300 Coal 

Tier VI Premium ship: 500 Coal. Tech tree ship:400 Coal.

Tier VII Premium ship: 1000 Coal. Tech tree ship: 750 Coal.

Tier VIII tech tree ship: 1000 Coal.

So slightly less steel than I thought but a lot more coal for T7/T8 tech tree ships (and premiums).

Hellllloooooo coop spam.

Well, I guess I can stop worrying about buying more tier 9 and 10 ships, not worth the trouble.

 

If you ran out of luck and were 200 steel away from Stalingrad it would be. I think this event is geared towards those with every t10 and premium in the game. Im not one of em but I look forward to the free coal and steel nonetheless.

That will be a tidy set of sums to do when I log back in tonight. However, assuming I haven't forgotten any ships (and if I have, the figures will only improve), I think I stand to gain in the neighbourhood of 23,000 coal and about 450 steel, not including the PEF (which I can probably win) and the Salem (which I will probably acquire before the end of the event, although it will be the other ships which mostly help me on the home stretch to get her).

So the t8s and t8 premiums get the best of both worlds with steel and coal. 200steel [2 tier tens] for having a premium t8 and 1k coal for just having a t8 silver ship. This is event rather neat.

Well if I grind co-op for 161 games I can get ~70,000 coal and 6,700 steel.

If I drop ~150k of free exp I can get another 550 steel.

 

Edit: +7% for both coal and steel due to clan Naval Base construction, so ~75,00 coal and ~7,800 steel.

I'm debating fxping to both TX cvs; if I remember right we can "sell" them for free xp once the rework goes live anyways. For me that'd be another 300.

Steel is about what I expected but way more coal.

Looks like for me ( right now - will actually get a hair more of each after I sell a few for needed credits after getting what they will get and then buy a handful of ships I don't have but am grinding)...

T2 Premium (300 Coal):
3/900

T3 Premium (300 Coal):
3/900

T4 Premium (300 Coal):
3/900

T5:
Premium (400 Coal) = 10/4000
Tech (300 Coal) = 5/1500

T6:
Premium (500 Coal) = 18/9000
Tech (400 Coal) = 7/2800

T7:
Premium (1000 Coal) = 16/16,000
Tech (750 Coal) = 10/7500

T8:
Premium (200 Steel) = 19/3800
Tech (1000 Coal) = 15/15,000

T9:
Premium (200 Steel) = 4/800
Tech (50 Steel) = 11/550

T10:
Premium (200 Steel) = 1/200
Tech (100 Steel) = 17/1700

Total Coal = 58,500
Total Steel = 7050

That's not bad for free stuff.

EDIT - forgot clan bldg bonuses. "IF" they apply to this event too that is an extra 5% for each so an extra  2925 Coal and an extra 352 Steel.

Don't expect any new high tier coal ships for a long time... They wouldn't be giving out this much coal if they planned on it. Alaska is obviously going to be free xp, probably for 1.25 million free xp I bet

Calcs for Snowflake Steel:

Tech Tree Ships:

T9 - 22 ships = 22 x 50 = 1,100 steel

T10 - 22 ships = 22 x 100 = 2,200 steel

Premiums: 

T8-T10 - 31 ships = 30 x 200 = 6,300 steel

 

Total earnable steel through the Snowflake event: 9,600

You know, Wargaming seems dead set on making tech tree tier 8+ ships not worth the bother. Horrible economy, expensive camo, and now nerfed rewards compared to premium ships. Anyways just an observation and a complaint.
