Get ready to blow out the candles and grab a slice of cake, because World of Warships is turning two years old on 17 September! It’s hard to believe that two years has already passed—two years of non-stop, pulse-pounding action on the high seas—and we want to thank you, the players, for being there every step of the way. But what would a birthday be without some presents? Get ready to light up the sky as we host a virtual fireworks show in the Warships team’s home port of Saint Petersburg, and keep an eye out for special Easter eggs hidden throughout our maps for you to find.
That’s not all we have in store! Celebrate the good times, and even remember the bad, as we present a special set of achievements and a new Collection focusing on the key moments in our second year of development!
Event Start: Update 0.6.10.1 Release
Event End: Update 0.6.11 Release
Special Achievements & New Collection
Specifically for the purpose of the second anniversary, we’ve put together all the significant events that happened during this year and created a set of unique achievements and a new collection relating to them. Of course, these events triggered various emotions among both the developers and the players. Some caused very important game changes and proved to be a success from the very beginning, while others needed to be revised and reworked. It was a year that saw many changes to the game, including the introduction of the new economy, “Operations” mode, British cruisers, “The Hunt for Bismarck” Campaign, and several other updates that we are celebrating!
Reminisce about the recent updates together with us and earn hidden achievements in the rage of battle! By being smart and creative, you’ll be able to find and earn the achievements in different battle types playing all types of ships of any tier. For each achievement you earn, you will receive an item from the new collection dedicated to a certain event. Complete the entire birthday collection by finding all the achievements!
An achievement can be earned several times per day, but the reward will be credited only for the first time you earn the achievement!
Only after you receive your first achievement or your first container “World of Warships Anniversary” that can also be purchased in the Premium Shop, you’ll get access to the collection dedicated to the World of Warships Birthday. The collection consists of 16 items related to various stages of the project development that happened in 2016/17, and is divided into four sub-collections.
Exchange rate of the collection duplicates is 2 to 1 (you can get 1 missing item by spending 2 duplicates), the amount of credits you’ll get for each duplicate after completing the entire collection is 15,000 per each duplicate.
For completing each of the four sub-collections, you’ll be rewarded with an unique permanent camouflage that can be mounted on the Tier VIII ships: Kiev, Charles Martel, Z-23, New Orleans
For completing the entire “2 Years of World of Warships” collection, you will receive a special achievement, a commemorative flag and a permanent camouflage that can be mounted on the British battleship Monarch.
All camouflage have the same bonuses:
- +50% to Commander EXP earned
- +50% to Free EXP earned
- -3% to the ship’s detectability
- +4% to maximum dispersion of shells fired by the enemy attacking your ship
In celebration of the 2nd anniversary, we decorated the Saint Petersburg Port. You will see festive fireworks, special illumination and much more! By the way, we’ve hidden several “Easter eggs” for you on some maps. Will you be patient enough to find them all? To make the Birthday Party even more fun, we’ve added festive images and messages to the loading windows, event notifications and battle results screen. We hope you’ll like it!
