Dear Creators! This is the World of Warships Community Contributors Program!

Our aim with this program is to build a healthy and constructive community that is welcoming for new players to join, and helpful for veterans to flourish. Our Community Contributor, are placed in the spotlight as a positive example and role model. Their personal and professional growth are of the utmost importance to us, so we will be happy to promote their quality content and provide assets for you to create it.

The NA region is currently supported by an amazing group of CCs, the full list can be found here.


Program management:

The World of Warships CC Program is managed by a designated international team within Wargaming.net. The CC Program Management Team reserves the right to:

  • Change and update the rules of the program with notification through the CC Program Discord;
  • Resolve any escalated issues and make final decisions on all CC Program affairs.

That said, the core principle of the CC Program is mutual respect and constant interaction between World of Warships and Community Contributors.

    • Your T-shirt size
    • Your date of birth

:cap_horn: IMPORTANT: submissions without any already created content on World of Warships will be dismissed. We believe that the Program is good for those who have already made the first steps into World of Warships content creation. While we want to promote players new to content creation and just beginning their journey down that particular road, we do expect to see your commitment in the form of content produced on your own.

The bare minimum requirement:

YouTube - Monthly average of 300 or more views per video/stream on YT and 1200 total monthly views for the last 90 days. or,

Twitch - Have an average of 30+ viewers per WoWs stream on Twitch & minimum of 2 streams a month for the last 90 days.

If your content is of another media, it will be assessed separately. 

:cap_horn:It should be noted, that meeting these hard minimums does not guarantee your acceptance into the program, your content will still be assessed by the CC regional manager.

The regional manager will then assess your application and supporting content, and make a decision on your application. This can take some time to occur, however, once completed the decision will be communicated to you over Forum PM. If you are declined, we will provide you some advice and areas to work on going forward.


Encouraged behavior

Any of these is a plus, but might not be necessary in particular cases:

  • Keep a regular uploading/streaming schedule*;
  • Make content that can reach outside our core audience on occasion;
  • Be engaged with your audience;
  • Give constructive feedback on changes both directly to the team through designated channels and through produced content;
  • Respect other viewpoints and be able to debate topics with sufficient reasoning;
  • Help the game/community grow.

*We are determined to respect your preferred content generation pace and are not going to rush you. We just want to make sure you stay on our radar. If we don't see your presence for too long, we will try to contact you before suspending your access.


Program Perks:

Depending on the opportunities that arise, our judgment, as well as your performance, we may also do additional things with you:

No-no’s (strict rules)

We expect community contributors to avoid creating content containing the following or behaving in public spaces in a way that implies:

  • Racial slurs, homophobic comments or insults;
  • Personal attacks or harassment directed towards anyone;
  • Personal attacks or harassment directed towards other members of the Program*;
  • Dishonest comments or blatant lies about our games and products;

These expectations extend to forums, streams, videos, live events, Reddit, social media or any other public space or channel.

* This is outlined deliberately. Live and let live is our principle of relations within the Program. You may not necessarily like other contributors, and surely can challenge their opinions, but please do it with mutual respect.


Enforcement

If a program participant fails to comply with the rules, guidelines and principles stated above, the following measures may be applied, determined by the CC Program Management Team on a case-by-case basis:

  • A private or public warning or rebuke;
  • A temporary suspension from the program;
  • A removal from the program.

Once again: if there is an issue, let’s try to work it out by talking first.

In case of serious violation of EULA, Terms of Service, Game or Clan rules, we reserve the right to enforce the measures above, in addition to the standard measures applied to all players.
