Are the anniversary festivities a bit light this year?

It's August already! And that means WG-versary is right around the corner. Hip hip hooray!

Thinking about the past WoWS anniversaries, however, I am wondering if this one will be a bit underwhelming.

Remember this?

We had an anniversary collection released for both 2017 and 2018. I really enjoyed looking at the collection items to see how far we've come. Yet, somehow, I doubt we will have one this year. There have been no announcement on the dev blogs and I feel one will not come.

Thoughts?

WG tends to make lots of announcements during gamescom, late August. 

I expect some stuff then.

You think that WG announces WoWS anniversary stuff at Gamescom? I wouldn't because it doesn't have anything to do with the direction of the game. And, if there were to be a collection, we should've heard about it by now.

I doubt that there will be a collection for the anniversary. The next patch brings the French collection.

This is what I meant. :Smile_sad: You phrased it better.

I recall that last year, although the celebration was pretty good, there was nothing along the lines of a "pre-announcement".  Less hype than substance.

Have faith. 

 

Then complain.

WG anniversary is not WoWs anniversary. The stuff you're thinking about will probably come sometime in September, not August.

It is way to early for them to talk about it, if they do.

WG anniversary is in September and they never have announced things too far in advance.

Yes, all part of their "prison shower surprise" marketing strategy.

WoWS tends to get one small event for the WG anniversary in August, one large event for the WoWS anniversary in September, and one rushed disaster every year for Gamescom.

This years anniversary announcement will be Subs on PTS.

You know, I'd actually like to see that.                     ...Not that I intend to play them. I just want to see the community reaction.

 

I dunno, some people just want to see the world burn? :Smile_popcorn:

Well, The French Arc ends at the conclusion of 8.7, which leaves us around the end of September, and the WoWs anniversary is around that time, so its still too early to start wondering about it. My guess is when the Dev blog updates with the content for Patch 8.8, most of it will be centered around the Anniversary event, and they'll need something to act in between the FR DD arc and the arrival of the Italians, and the Italian arc will take us into Christmas, the time of Steel covered snowflakes, T6 perma camos for all the new T6 tech tree boats released in 2019, and grinding to the near limits of sanity all for a deeply mediocre to garbage reward ship.

 Will most likely feature:

new collection pertaining to everything that happened from British DDs to French DDs, with the reward being a unique captain for the Pan EU nations

another "Snowflake Style" event, giving steel for high tier ships and coal for lower tier ones.

Dragon flags for every 1k battles played

Supercontainers for every T10 ship in your port

Siegfried arriving for 1million Free XP and replacing Azuma for the one supercruiser that actually isn't worth your time or money (although things can change in the 2 months until 8.8)

the arrival of the Pan EU nation, with Viribus Unitis being a directive reward ship, Friesland becomes available for Free XP, and a new currency, Anniversary tokens, can be obtained, and the main prize for collecting these tokens will be T7 Pan EU DD Blysawica (butchered that spelling, but most should understand what ship I'm talking about.)
