Collection - In the Service of the Motherland
No Directives, but other stuff coming
NOTE: Allowance Tokens (earned in 8.3) can be spent in Victory Part 1 of the Armory until Jun 25th. Provision Tokens (earned in 8.4) can be spent in Victory Part 2 of the Armory until Jul 23rd.
1 Allowance token = 8,000 credits 1 Provision token = 22,500 credits
Patch 8.3 dropped Apr 25th
Patch 8.4 dropped May 29th
Patch 8.5 will be likely to drop Jun 26th
Patch 8.6 will be likely to drop Jul 24th
NOTE: the Victory event started Thu, Apr 25th and ends Sun, Jun 23rd as the last day to earn Provision Tokens.
The Victory event will be a modified Go Navy event with Team Honor and Team Glory that will run in patches 8.3 and 8.4. You pick whether you are on Team Honor or Team Glory each day. You can not change again that day. You can change teams the next day if you like. After the first day, the team that won will need to gather more points the next day for rewards and the losing team will get more bonus team points (personal points are not affected) that next day to help it catch up. There will be 3 bonus levels of difficulty for the winning team and the normal level and the rewards will go up with the difficulty.
NOTE: Team loyalty. You will get rewarded for being loyal to a team for 15 days with a commemorative patch and a team flag. You can get the 15 day reward for both teams. You can get a further 5 day reward (20 days total on a team) of a commemorative patch and Victory flag. So there is an incentive to change teams if you don't play much each day, as playing on the team that lost the day before can get you more tokens. See the token section below.
Patch 8.3 is scheduled for Thu, April 25th. Early access Russian BBs in containers. Allowance Tokens (TokenA or TokenA) can only be earned in 8.3 and spent in Victory Part 1 in the Armory. Provision Tokens (TokenP or TokenP) can only be earned in 8.4 and spent in Victory Part 2 in the Armory.
Patch 8.4 is looking to be released on Wed, May 29th as a SWAG (Ironium available until May 28th, but could drop May 22nd-ish). Full Russian BB line expected to drop. TokenA earning ends this patch, but you can still spend them.
Patch 8.5 would likely be Wed, Jun 26th if everything stays on schedule. This would be the end of the Victory event. With the Tokens ending on Jun 25th (right before patch drop), that makes 8.5 dropping on Wed, Jun 26th likely the plan, barring delays.
1 Allowance Token = 8,000 credits
Patch 8.6 would likely be Wed, Jul 24th if everything stays on schedule. This will be when Provision Token spending will end. Since French DDs are in testing, this may be the French event if it doesn't start in 8.5.
1 Provision token = 22,500 credits
Accessing the Event pages and rules are in the upper left where the past events have been listed.
Pick a Team screen. Click on the portraits that the arrows are pointing to for your team selection. See spoiler tag.
Earning points for your Team that day.
You earn points, both Personal and Team, by winning the match, sinking ships, getting achievements, Ops stars and completing a personal mission (see spoiler) in a match. Every battle mode will have different ways to earn points. See spoiler for details on points for a given event in battle. Note, the Win points are FOUR times the destroyed ship points, so try to win for more points.
NOTE: Femennenly confirmed that TokenA earning is only in patch 8.3. Provision Tokens (TokensP)will be earned in 8.4 and can be spent in the Victory Part 2 section of the Armory. Both Tokens are earned the same way. https://forum.worldofwarships.com/topic/190165-clarifying-question-regarding-winning-the-lazo/?tab=comments#comment-4459873
Note: This is for T5+ ships and works in Random, Co-op, Operations, Clan and/or Ranked Battles. NOTE: the bonus points for being on the losing team DO NOT affect personal points, the bonus only affects Team points.
Balancing Team points
NOTE: The bonus is only for Team points. Personal points are NOT affected by the bonus for being on the team that lost the day before.
Points for the day start at 6am EDT (3am PDT) and end at 5am EDT (2am PDT) the next morning. Battles that take place during this hour between days do not count for points. Note, you earn the tokens from points right away. Tokens from Wall of Valor and winning appear the next day.
NOTE: Allowance Tokens were earned in part 1 of the Victory event in patch 8.3. Part 2 of the Victory event is in 8.4 and you earn Provision tokens. You still earn points in game as detailed above and below are the Provision Tokens you earn for each point level.
In total, there are four difficulty levels:
Points Tokens Modifier for the losing team (only affects Team points and DOES NOT affect Personal points)
100 3 0%
100 3 +50% team points
100 3 +150% points
100 3 +450% points
So, for a team to get to Extreme level, it would have to win 3 days in a row. To get to Very Hard level, the team must win 2 days in a row. If a team loses, it immediately drops to Normal level the next day. Note, the team bonus went up and since people earned the Honor flag in part 1, it is unlikely one team will get to Extreme level any more.
Note, if you can not play much and/or can not earn lots of points in a day, you would want to play on the team that lost the day before to maximize Tokens. Conversely, if you earn lots of points in a day, you want to play on the team that won to maximize Tokens.
If you earn 500 points in a day, you get 18 Tokens at Normal level, 13 Tokens at Hard level, 6 Tokens at Very Hard level and 6 Tokens at Extreme level.
If you earn 1,000 points in a day, you get 18 Tokens at Normal level, 20 Tokens at Hard level, 15 Tokens at Very Hard level and 6 Tokens at Extreme level. You want to get 2k+ points if you are on the team with Very Hard (24/33) or Extreme (24/42).
If you earn 2,000 points in a day, you get 18 Tokens at Normal level, 27 Tokens at Hard level, 24 Tokens at Very Hard level and 18 Tokens at Extreme level. You want to get 2.5k+ points if you are on the team with Very Hard (24/33) or Extreme (24/42).
If you earn 2,500 points in a day, you get 18 Tokens at Normal level, 27 Tokens at Hard level, 33 Tokens at Very Hard level and 30 Tokens at Extreme level. You want to get 3k+ points if you are on the team with Extreme (42).
If you earn 3,000 points in a day, you get 18 Tokens at Normal level, 27 Tokens at Hard level, 33 Tokens at Very Hard level and 42 Tokens at Extreme level.
If you are on the winning team, you get 2 Tokens.
Wall of Valor (daily HoF)
If you earn 1 point from a battle, you get 2 Tokens.
If you are in the Top 50% of points earners that day, you get 2 Tokens.
If you are in the Top 25% of points earners that day, you get 2 Tokens.
If you are in the Top 10% of points earners that day, you get 2 Tokens.
If you are in the Top 5% of points earners that day, you get 2 Tokens.
The Tokens stack, so if you get into the Top 5%, you get 10 Tokens (5x2). These points are the Personal points that are not affected by the team bonus.
Premium "Soviet Era" containers will be in the Victory Part 1 of the Armory for doubloons and have 75 Allowance Tokens with Draconic flags and/or one-use camos. The premium containers *MAY* be in the shop at some point, possibly Fri, Apr 26th as a WAG. If you get an early access RU BB mission, you must complete it before early morning Monday, June 24th. See the Spending Tokens - Early Access Russian BBs section for full details. You can still buy Soviet Era containers in the Armory, for Allowance Tokens and one each premium container for 1,250 doubloons. You *may* get the early access RU BB missions, but I highly, highly doubt it.
Premium "In the Service of the Motherland" containers will be in the Victory Part 2 of the Armory for doubloons and have 25 Provision Tokens with Draconic flags (15) and one Motherland collection piece. NOTE: You can get the Motherland collection pieces in the daily containers, so you do not need to buy a bunch of Motherland containers. You only need one to start the collection and you can get a collection piece from the Provision Token containers (40 each), so you do not need to spend doubloons to start the Motherland collection.
So, you can earn 2 Provision Tokens by just earn 1+ point in a battle that day. You can earn as much as 62 Provision Tokens if you are on the Winning Team that had Extreme difficulty and got into the Top 5% of the Personal points earners that day.
NOTE: The points you earn for your Personal total are NOT affected by the bonus points for the team that lost the previous day.
Which Team to pick
As you can see, you can earn more Tokens on the team with the harder difficulty. Here is the break down by points level that you think you can earn that day. Note, I'm not including WoV tokens as they are the same whether your team wins or loses and depend entirely how every else does to see where you fit into the top percentages.
100 points or less - the team does not matter as the points will be the same 3 Provision Tokens. If you pick the winning team, you get 2 more Provision Tokens
200-299 points - the team does not matter as the points will be the same 6 Provision Tokens. If you pick the winning team, you get 2 more Provision Tokens
300-399 points - pick the team with Normal difficulty as you will get 10 Provision Tokens (12 if you win). If you incorrectly picked the Hard, Very Hard or Extreme difficulty you will get 6 Tokens (8 w/Win). So the Normal team is the best option.
400-499 points - pick the team with Normal difficulty as you will get 14 Provision Tokens (16 if you win). If you incorrectly picked the Hard, Very Hard difficulty or Extreme difficulty you will get 6 Tokens (8 w/Win). So the Normal team is the best option.
500-999 points - pick the team with Normal difficulty as you will get 18 Provision Tokens (22 if you win). If you incorrectly picked the team with Hard difficulty, you will get 13 Tokens (15 w/win). If you incorrectly picked the Very Hard or Extreme difficulty, you will get 6 Tokens (8 w/Win). So the Normal team is the best option.
1,000-1,999 points - pick the team with Hard difficulty if it is available as you will get 20 Provision Tokens (22 if you win). Otherwise pick Normal difficulty as you will get 18 Tokens (20 w/Win). If you incorrectly picked the team with Very Hard difficulty you will get 15 Tokens (17 with a win). If you picked Extreme difficulty, you will get 6 Tokens (8 w/Win). So the Hard/Normal team is the best option.
2,000-2,499 points - pick the team with Hard or Very Hard difficulty if it is available as Hard will you get 27 Provision Tokens (29 if you win) and Very Hard will get you 24 Tokens (26 w/win). Both Normal difficulty and Extreme difficulty will get you 18 Tokens (20 if you win). So the team that has the Hard or Very Hard difficulty is the best option. Otherwise, it doesn't matter.
2,500-2,999 points - pick the team with Hard, Very Hard or Extreme difficulty as you will get more Tokens than the Normal difficulty team even if you lose. If the team had Hard difficulty you will get 27 Tokens (29 w/Win). If the team had Very Hard difficulty, you will get 33 Tokens (35 w/Win), If the team had Extreme difficulty you will get 30 Tokens (32 w/Win). If you incorrectly picked the team with Normal Difficulty, you will get 18 Tokens (20 if you win). So the team that has the Hard, Very Hard or Extreme difficulty is the best option.
3,000+ points - pick the team with Hard, Very Hard or Extreme difficulty as you will get more Tokens than the Normal difficulty team even if you lose. If the team had Hard difficulty you will get 27 Tokens (29 w/Win). If the team had Very Hard difficulty, you will get 33 Tokens (35 w/Win), If the team had Extreme difficulty you will get 42 Tokens (44 w/Win). If you incorrectly picked the team with Normal Difficulty, you will get 18 Tokens (20 if you win). So the team that has the Hard, Very Hard or Extreme difficulty is the best option.
I hope this clears this up for everyone. Winning today is not what is important. Knowing how many points you can earn in your playtime and then picking the correct team that won or lost YESTERDAY is WAY MORE IMPORTANT!
Spending Allowance Tokens from 8.3 (TokenA)
Early Access Russian Battleships
If you get an early access RU BB mission, you must complete it before early morning Monday, June 24th.
BB missions from both containers will be rare drops, so don't be surprised if you buy a lot of containers for tokens and/or doubloons and don't get an RU BB drop. DO NOT buy the containers if you don't value the other items in the container. That way lies disappointment.
Premium T7 CL Lazo
Perma-camo for T8 BB Vladivostok, T8 CL Chapayev, T8 DD Ognevoi and T8 DD Kiev
For 500 Tokens each, you can get a perma camo for one of the above ships. They have the same benefits as other T8 perma-camos of combat bonuses, -10% service cost and +50% XP.
Spending Provision Tokens from 8.4 (TokenP)
Provision tokens will be earned the same way as Allowance Tokens. There will be a new set of containers for 8.4 to replace the Soviet Era containers. The In The Service of the Motherland containers can be bought with tokens and probably with Doubloons as well. You can spend TokensP on Murmansk, Cmdr Kuznetsov, Motherland containers and probably camo, flags and premium time.
Signals, Camo, WoWs premium time, & Credits
In the Service of the Motherland Containers
You will be able to buy Motherland containers in the Victory Part 2 part of the Armory for Provision Tokens and they are for Doubloons for the premium version. They will all have a collection piece for the In the Service of the Motherland collection, but you can get further pieces from the Daily Containers. You only need ONE container to start the collection and if Daily Shipments run in June, then you should get two free ones there. More info on the collection in the collection section below.
Premium Motherland Containers
Note, while the chance at a premium ship is higher than the Token containers, it is still very small. If you already have the ship you get credits in compensation.
Token Motherland Containers
Note, the chance of a premium ship is very small. If you already have the ship you get credits in compensation.
Unique 10pt Commander Nikolay Kuznetsov
500 Provision Tokens for the 10pt Nikolay Kuznetsov. If you play every day and get 500pts and pick the Normal difficulty team every day, you will make 520 Provision Tokens from Wed, May 29th to Sun, Jun 23rd when the Provision Token earning ends. So you can get Kuznetsov for free, but you will have to grind. If you have days where you make more than 500pts and pick a team with the harder difficulties, then you can earn Kuznetsov quicker.
Note, several updates after 8.4, i.e. likely late this year, Kuznetsov will be in the Armory for coal.
T5 CL Murmansk
200 Provision Tokens for Murmansk
@Femennenly noted doubloon compensation in this post. https://forum.worldofwarships.com/topic/192303-murmansk-compensation/?tab=comments#comment-4511521
More details on the ship in the wiki. http://wiki.wargaming.net/en/Ship:Murmansk
LWM review. Do check others as well as her review is from before the smoke changes, OWSF changes and the skill changes in 6.0 in Jan 2017.
In the Service of the Motherland collection
This will be a collection you can start with a single In the Service of the Motherland container that you can buy for Provision Tokens you can earn in 8.4. Once you have the collection started, it can drop from the Daily Containers if you have "Collect" enabled on the collection. The collection being a subscription collection comes from the Dev Diary video (2 min mark), so it is possible it could change. The collection will reward the ability to set alternate camo colors on RU ships and the ability to fly two flags from your RU ships. There are 8 sub-collections with 4 items each. Each sub-collection will also give an October Revolution container, which has the appearance of a Try Your Luck container. There will be chances to get other RU premium ships, likely from these containers.
You will be able to purchase the normal In the Service of the Motherland containers in the Victory Part 2 part of the Armory for Provision Tokens. You will earn TokensP just like you earned TokensA in 8.3. See Token earning above for the changes in the amounts of Provision Tokens earned.
Motherland Token containers will have:
5 Victory camos or 5 special signals (draconic) and
1,000 coal or 10 combat signals and
1 collection piece for the Motherland collection
and a very tiny chance of a mission for the T5 DD Okhotnik, T6 CA Molotov, T7 DD Leningrad, or T8 BB Lenin.
Premium Motherland containers will have:
15 Victory camos or 15 special signals (draconic) and
25 Provision Tokens and
1 collection piece for the Motherland collection
and a tiny chance of a mission for the T5 DD Okhotnik, T6 CA Molotov, T7 DD Leningrad, or T8 BB Lenin.
Note, the chances for a mission for a premium ship will be very tiny. There will be premium Motherland containers with a higher chance of a mission, but the chance will still be tiny to get a premium ship mission.
October Revolution TYL type container
The OR containers will be given for completing half of the sub-collections in the Motherland collection. The other half of sub-collections get you alternate camo colors and two flags. So you can get 4 OR containers. They will have the following:
250 Doubloons or
2,500 Doubloons or
1 day WoWs premium time or
5,000 Free XP
I would expect the FXP and premium time to be common with the doubloons being rare.
Motherland Collection article https://worldofwarships.com/en/news/game-updates/in-the-service-of-the-motherland/
No Directives, but other stuff coming.
There will be no Directives or missions in patch 8.3. Most likely not any in 8.4 either. There will be things coming.
Early morning Wed, May 1st, the latest Azure Lane collaboration will start.
Everything you need to know is in that Azure lane article above.
NoZoupForYou Azure Lane crate demo in the spoiler. From the green text above, you see that there will be "...relevant packages in our Premium Shop", so that *could* mean only crates or there *could* be other stuff. We will find out on Wed, May 1st.
Golden Week Fri, Apr 26th to very early morning Mon, May 6th.S
May 31st to Jun 20th (ends very early Jun 21st)
Daily shipments will give out 2 1 Motherland crates, so you do not have to buy any to start the collection.
Shipments usually give out two containers, but the picture shows one, so count on one Motherland container.
April 26th to May 8th (ends very early May 9th)
May Daily Shipment pics
Expect more info when the patch drops.
