We are excited to announce the introduction of the World of Warships Privateers Program!



This initiative will reward and salute members of the community that we identify as contributing in ways other than just content creation.
 

The sort of players the Privateer Program will include could be: 

  • event organizers.
  • model makers.
  • wiki editors etc.
  • volunteer moderators.
  • People we believe add and contribute to the World of Warships community and deserve this reward and recognition.

 


Benefits of the Privateers Program:

  • Will be issued this swashbuckingly good looking insignia (shown above)
  • A distinctive and suitably heroic in-game patch (right)
  • As well as a in-game flag to signal their prestigious status (left)
  • Access to a dedicated Discord with access to the World of Warships Development team to aid and assist them in continuing their outstanding efforts
  • Early access to upcoming content

This will not be an application-based system but one where regional teams will reach out directly to candidates they identify.

Thank you all for making the World of Warships community what it is and keep a weather eye for these new marauders in game.

Action Stations!

How many of my lego models/Cobi updates would I have to post to get a Privateer flag? Cause I can start going any time and even post the LDD's so that others can build/modify their own (I even have an LDD of just all the Hulls, no super-structures or guns or props, that I use myself when doing a new design (spoiler: most CV's are basically slightly modified Battleship Hulls and Battlecruisers are slightly thinned/lengthened Battleship hulls).

Avast ye!  A privateer is a buffed pirate.  The no prey, no pay rule has been rescinded in favor of salty dogs who share the booty.  Update the Pirate Code accordingly.

Nice. The more people get recognized for their efforts the more they will want to continue doing them so the rest of us benefit. Good on the person that decided to pursue this on the WG staff.

Absolutely fantastic idea!  I can think of a few people who definitely deserve the commendation and would benefit greatly from the new channels of communication.

This makes me think of a couple guys right off the bat,   Kizarvexis,  Taylor3006AdmiralThunderLightninger, and Lord_Zath.

These guys are awesome and helped me try to get better at the this game. They are very informative. Plus, they do not make degrading or polarizing posts on this forum. Always upbeat.

Also for the international communities?

Yes, of course! This  will be determined by regional teams for people they are interested in adding to the program. Each region will have their own players participating in the Privateer Program.

what is the discord channel to be able to participate ? i tried to find it but didnt work out 

 

Hello, lost113001 the discord channel will be for players that have been accepted into the Privateers program. This will not be a public channel.

Please remember that there is no application process to the Privateers Program, players will be chosen by us if we feel they are a good fit for this program.

Thanks!

I suspect we keep our eyes open for chances to help out with the wiki and other ways to contribute. Kudos for finding more ways to engage people who love the game. O7.

Kami,

I like this idea.  Well done.

Edit - If this ever developed further I would look at sending out specific individual rewards such as the something along the lines of John Paul Jones and Sir Francis Drake.  Maybe unique captain's with a cool voice over but no special abilities etc.

You seem disturbingly familiar with the subject...  :Smile_child:

I have wanted to talk to the developers, and or modelers for WOWs for quite some time now. I dont know if they would consider any of the model work as of any help to them, but I would gladly help them, and or submit my ship models and kit bash ships for them to implement into the game, if they found any value to them. 480693041_AnreaDoriaRough3a.thumb.png.06c6ecd551cfa6a9e202615041582f97.png

Model of Julius Caesar next to Roma by Maxromash. I use the JC to strip the upper deck guns, and alter the superstructure to be like that of the Andrea Doria. 

The hulls are very similar and the dimensions are easily adjusted. I use the aa and secondary guns from Roma to create Andrea Doria. 1330973468_AnreaDoriaRough1c.thumb.png.e1b2932d9ba7d171de8c65440a84e69f.png

I have moved the guns to reflect Andrea Doria. I still need to alter the center section of the superstructure on the ship. I have a book on order to hopefully

get better pictures of the architecture right behind the main bridge structure. The line drawings, and most photographs online do not show this well.Deutschland_Lutzow2a.thumb.png.e03a377406376213ce057d567c934788.png

Converting Graf Spee to Deutschland, and or Lutzow as she was renamed. The ships hulls were almost identical. The bridge and 

layout were not. the guns, and aft torpedo launchers are not in the same locations. The upper deck length is slightly different and around 7 meters shorter. The main bridge

and deckhouse is a totally different design. The Arado scout plane and catapult are just aft of the main bridge area, in front of the funnel. On Graf Spee, and Scheer they are aft of the funnel.

I didn't think that it would be very difficult to bash this ship, but I was wrong. I had to alter the main turrets range finders as they are further back on the Spee, and Scheer. 810kpsJ4vmL.thumb.jpg.5a5910c772bba4cb7c63ba4fe428d5a1.jpg

I paid about 32 dollars for this book for more reference about Deutschland/Lutzow. It shows the 1942 configuration. These books are invaluable. I wish there was one for Andria Doria, but no such luck at the moment. I might have to buy Blue Prints of her if I can find them. DanteAlighieri1932Rough16daa.thumb.png.0eda7a33f262ef7198ae9bcf1fe1cb72.png

This is Dante Alighieri. Based on the 1928, 23,000 ton proposed Battleship design that Italy was considering before it decided

to use the money to upgrade the 4 - WW1 Battleships instead. This ship would have had 6 - 15 inch (381mm) guns. Somewhat

like the Scharnhorst sisters were suppose to, but the guns were a 1916 design, and not as modern as the longer and newer ones 

that were used on Roma.

 Mclass1938Rough1j.thumb.png.454f5a2446b34e08b64557e2b7eb05a6.png

Here I am attempting to splice the aft section of Nuremberg to the hull of Yorck, and alter the dimensions to match the M class light 

cruiser design for Plan Z. 2 of the ships keels were laid down in 1938, but later after being canceled the steel was used for tanks, and submarines.

Mclass1938Rough5j.thumb.png.3920e30448bde96a712fc46a756dd16a.png

On a different visual level in the Blender program, I lay out the main 15cm guns and the 88mm large AA guns along with the catapult and 

a few smaller guns/deck boats. I stared modeling the funnel sponson nests.

113622199_NevadaRough4aSlopGuessMeasurment.thumb.png.58ded98cd202979a09497c86cee3dded.png

Here is the Arizona with the hull shortened by 12 meters and the main gun set up for Nevada's main battery. The hull of the Texas is

actually more dimensionally correct to Nevada, so I will use that one to alter later. I wanted to see, and or get a rough idea of Nevada's

Set up. I might be able to use parts from Wyoming to New Mexico but a lot of Nevada will have to be modeled in totality, so I think 

this will be a large project after Dante Alighieri.

Nice close up bow  deck shot to showcase the main 14" gun turret set up that was on Nevada, and Oklahoma.
