Try a new Operation for tier VII ships where you break a well-protected enemy defense line, close in on their base, and support the landing of troops, all while sending enemy ships to the bottom!
There are two ways to complete the Operation: defend the troops until they complete the landing, or destroy all enemy combat units. Tailor your decision to your team's lineup and playstyle.
Check out the “Hamburg Port,” created using real historical images. This will become the new default for everyone with the next update.
The first Campaign, "The Battle of the North Cape," has missions that relate to a certain stage of the historical battle it's named after, which occurred on December 26, 1943. It was part of the Arctic Campaign fought between Britain and Germany; the last battle between capital ships in World War II.
The second Campaign is all about the new year! Finish both these new Campaigns to get various items from a new collection inspired by the Battle of the North Cape. The collection includes ship elements, photographs, badges, and coats of arms.
It’s easier to complete the missions during the Public Test. However, Campaign rewards in the Public Test may differ from what goes in the finalized update.
New Year celebrations are steaming towards us at flank speed -- what better way to ring in 2018 than with the fanfare of ship horns!
The new horns let you sound off to surrounding ships. Once you activate the horn, ("N" key by default) you spend a four-second "time resource," which needs a regeneration/cooldown of 15 seconds afterward. You don’t have to lean on the horn for all four seconds; try several shorter horns instead. However, this can result in full regeneration taking up to 45 seconds.
Each ship type has its own horn, and their reach depends on your distance to other ships: it’s loudest at a distance of 1-2km, and quietest at the distance of 5-6km.
You’ll be able to hear the horns of enemy ships if you or your allies have detected them, and using your binocular view affects the volume of the ship’s whistle.
