WORLD OF WARSHIPS ANNIVERSARY

7514a99a-eb82-11ea-831e-8cdcd4b147d4.jpg

With Update 0.9.8, World of Warships is celebrating its Fifth Anniversary! The festive Update offers a bunch of gifts and in-game activities: a permanent Campaign titled "Five Epochs of the Navy," plus a collection of the same name; fresh first-win bonuses, a revamped Designer's Table Port, and a new battle type—Asymmetric Battles.

Permanent "Five Epochs of the Navy" Campaign

b2e1ac68-e93f-11ea-99bf-8cdcd4b147d4.jpg

The "Five Epochs of the Navy" Campaign comprises 50 tasks grouped into five missions, each of which is dedicated to a specific shipbuilding epoch. To finish the Campaign, you'll need to complete tasks playing ships of various tiers: starting from Tier II–IV ships for the first mission, and progressing to Tiers VIII–X for the final mission.

Reward for finishing the Campaign: Epoch permanent camouflage for Tier IX ships.

"Five Epochs of the Navy" Collection

The "Five Epochs of the Navy" collection is made up of five sections, with six elements in each. Each section is dedicated to a specific period in the history of shipbuilding.

Only "Five Epochs of the Navy" containers drop collectibles.

The reward for completing the entire collection: Epoch permanent camouflage for Tier IX ships.

b2cd7342-e93f-11ea-adbc-8cdcd4b147d4.jpg

The Epoch permanent camouflage can be mounted on any Tier IX ship, except for flag_Russia_6ce701e1c2f2ac3909a68a0a7b23premium_1d0cabf1997104fd727039ab9c098192IX AL Sov. Rossiya. Once mounted on a ship, the camouflage remains assigned to that ship. Another copy of the camouflage can be assigned to a different ship.

Victory Bonuses

During Update 0.9.8, you can expect a festive bonus for your first victories of the Update with certain ships. It can be secured on ships starting from Tier V:

  • Tiers V–VII: 2x World of Warships Anniversary camouflage patterns
  • Tier VIII: 1x Gift container
  • Tier IX: 2x Gift containers
  • Tier X: 1x supercontainer

ASYMMETRIC BATTLES

754588f8-eb82-11ea-8e7d-8cdcd4b147d4.jpg

Starts: Wed. Sep. 02 3:00 AM PT

Ends: Wed. Sep. 16 3:00 AM PT

  • In an Asymmetric Battle, a team of five to seven Tier VII–VIII ships will confront a team of nine to twelve ships of Tiers V–VI.
  • To enter battle with Tier VII–VIII ships, you'll need to spend a new temporary resource—Battle Tokens. The cost of entering a battle playing Tier VII–VIII ships is 500 Battle Tokens.
  • Battle Tokens can be earned in Asymmetric Battles:
    • Tier V: 250 Tokens per battle
    • Tier VI: 150 Tokens per battle
    • Tier VII: 200 Tokens per battle
    • Tier VIII: 25 Tokens per battle
    • You'll receive 1,000 Tokens each day upon logging in to the game.
    • Tokens are earned irrespective of the battle results, but players will not be awarded them if they are inactive.

Please note: Battle Tokens are only used to participate in Asymmetric Battles. With the release of Update 0.9.9 all Battle Tokens will be converted into credits at a rate of 1:50. Asymmetric Battles become available after reaching Access Level 12.

DOCKYARD

7571f4d8-eb82-11ea-9630-8cdcd4b147d4.jpg

Another new feature of Update 0.9.8 is the Dockyard, where you'll be able to construct flag_USA_dd9fc06d19a8638f4077ab2fe200d22premium_1114542bcd311c388080eea3a4d54a7eVIII Anchorage. The rules of the new Dockyard are in many ways similar to those applied to the Hamburg Dockyard, but the list of rewards for completing the shipbuilding phases has changed. For example, completing phase 12 will bring you 100,000 Free XP.

94edaef8-eb8f-11ea-a8f7-8cdcd4b147d4.jpg

  • The construction process of the Dockyard comprises 20 phases.
  • Each shipbuilding phase can be completed by finishing the Directives of the event, or by spending 1,750 doubloons per phase.
  • The Directives will span two updates—0.9.8 and 0.9.9, and the Dockyard itself will remain in your Ports until the end of Update 0.9.10.
  • You can complete 18 out of 20 shipbuilding phases by accomplishing Directives. In order to complete the 19th and 20th phases, in addition to completing all the Directives, you'll need to purchase any two shipbuilding phases by spending doubloons.
  • flag_USA_dd9fc06d19a8638f4077ab2fe200d22premium_1114542bcd311c388080eea3a4d54a7eVIII Anchorage and her National camouflage, along with a 10-skill Commander, Port slot, and commemorative flag, await you upon completing the 20th phase.

The full details will be published in a dedicated article.

25576ac2-eb88-11ea-9342-8cdcd4b147d4_1200x.jpg

Details on how to get these items will be published later.

To make the process of researching ships simpler, the following changes have been made to flag_Germany_18970d883c7758b53538983bd09standard_874a3bdc3134b8da4fd6f52186f1b2bVIII Admiral Hipper's modules:

  • Hull A has been removed from the game.
  • Hulls B and C have been renamed "A" and "B," respectively.
  • If you have already researched Hull B, you'll receive compensation in the amount of 22,000 ship XP.
  • If you have already researched Hull C, the new Hull B will be mounted on your ship instead. In other cases Hull A will be mounted on the ship.
  • If you've already purchased one of the replacement hulls, you'll receive compensation in the amount of credits you paid for it.

The stock hull of flag_Germany_18970d883c7758b53538983bd09standard_874a3bdc3134b8da4fd6f52186f1b2bV Königsberg has been replaced with a new one, created on the basis of the researchable hull with a changed composition for the AA and secondary guns.

English-language audio for Naval Legends has been added into the game client:

  • To listen to Naval Legends directly in battle, you need to enable the "Listen to your own music" option in the sound settings.
  • If you already use your own music as background sound, then Naval Legends will be added to your playlist.
  • In case you opt to remove Naval Legends from your playlist, you need to remove the respective audio files from the bin/<VERSION_ID>/res/userMusiс folder in the game client.

Ships flag_United_Kingdom_c1f75d7cca85dc4b4820premium_1114542bcd311c388080eea3a4d54a7eVIII Belfast '43 and flag_USA_dd9fc06d19a8638f4077ab2fe200d22premium_1d0cabf1997104fd727039ab9c098192V Oklahoma have been added for testing by developers, volunteers, and community contributors.


OTHER CHANGES AND IMPROVEMENTS

  • Occurrence of a synchronization error has been reduced. This bug caused the incorrect display of ships' positions in battle.
  • Thunderstorm Front and Snowstorm are available in the game again.
  • Plus other improvements and changes. The full list is available from Player Support.

Full article here

If you have any bugs to report, you can submit them here :crab: after the patch goes live.

Do ships recently reset in research bureau still get the anniversary Victory Bonus containers automatically like last year?

This is not mentioned in the 0.9.8 update page but in last year's article below it states:

https://worldofwarships.com/en/news/game-updates/update-088-fourth-anniversary/
If you have used the Research Bureau and reset a branch of ships prior to Update 0.8.8 going live, you will receive the Anniversary Victory Bonuses for all Tier V–X ships of that branch automatically. Moreover, any ships of the reset branch that you buy back can bring you Anniversary Victory Bonuses once again in accordance with the general rules of the event.

The Mid-Autumn Festival camo looks horrific. Would probably focus anyone having so I don't have to see it.

Doubtful.  I believe this was because the research bureau was still fairly new.

How is it that the "AA flak goes through mountains" bug isn't even addressed in the now closed 

 Can WG please just acknowledge that it exists and tell us if it is planned to be worked or just not correctable in that list please?

@Hapa_Fodder you might know, how can this just not be addressed in any way?

Regarding these new permacamos, can we earn them or do we have to buy them?

They are earned...

I'm looking forward to see what the Asymmetrical battles will be like. I had thought of this concept awhile ago...it will be interesting to see how the ratios of tier ships per team unfolds and if some future adjustments will be happening. Be fun to play in this mode and see the outcomes. Unless we get crushed of course! Lol

The update is 8gig but that doesn't mean that much is added to the game, its merely there  to ensure its all added correctly...

HAPPY BIRTHDAY WOWS! I'm proud to have joined just after the game went public (on the EU server to begin with).

Lots and ups and downs but you've stuck with us and I've stuck with you.

I hope you're right about being able to earn them.  I read through the article but couldn't find anything that said one way or the other.  Did you see this somewhere?

The Asymmetric Battles were quite interesting on the last Public Test.  Playing both the upper and lower tier sides was fairly well split down the middle for wins and losses, so as with Random, it really comes down to player abilities and good team coordination.  I had also previously imagined such a battle mode but I'm an extremist; I would picture 12 Tier-1s against one Tier-10.  :D

Do I read this correctly that the patch will only be three weeks long?

image.thumb.png.1a792c48fdeddc3f26e810b476d64a5c.png

I think that this means that the daily shipments will only be available to be picked up for 21 days, not that the patch life is 21 days.

While I am sure some people will be horrified by the Anchorage's non-historical camo, I have always like the PNW native art form, and I think it looks pretty neat (much better than the beer can hat camo!)

It's near the top of the article ... in the section about the "Five Epochs of the Navy" Campaign & Collection

You can hear the explanation in the video ... starting around 1:50 ... 

You get 1 for completing the Campaign and 1 for the Collection ... unless I read/heard something wrong.

The Research Bureau was launched the patch before that one, so it was mandatory for them to give an incentive to do it without worries of not completing the reset during the Anniversary event. This year is different, as you already have a year with the system and knows how fast you can get to tier X again, so it is unnecessary to give that leeway again. It will be great if they give it, but I don't think so, it would have been mentioned otherwisse
