8 New additional Flags were added to the 0.6.12 client.
Battle of Trafalgar: I am genuinely confused by this flag. The Flag depicts the badge of HMS Victory, currently a museum ship that participated in the battle of Trafalgar. I can only surmise WG is planning some event related to that ship, such as a partnership with the museum.
Vampire: This is the premium flag for the new upcoming premium destroyer HMAS Vampire.
Tirpitz: Seems WG is wanting to invest in getting flags for premium ships that pre-date the premium ship flag concept. Means of acquisition unknown.
Indianapolis: Similar case to the Tirpitz flag.
Pigeon of War: Username of one of the developers, I presume he might be hosting some form of contest to win his flag.
Massachusetts: New Flag for the upcoming premium USS Massachusetts premium T8 Battleship.
Message PNG: This flag’s name makes little sense, as its not even in a .png file, but it seems to be a green variant of the Rasputin Flag (which has a black background, not green) Not mounted on any of the villain ships in the Halloween event however, so it could be a reward for participating in the event.
HW Another Flag: Also a perplexing title to the flag. If we presume “HW” is short for Halloween, I suspect this may also be a reward for participating in the Halloween event. Just speculation.

Brace yourselves for Update 0.6.12! Please make note of the scheduled maintenance times, necessary for the implementation of the new update.

Update 0.6.12 Patch Notes
A Daring Discount
Want to change up your fleet? Get a -100% discount to respec your Commanders and demount upgrades from October 19, 08:00 CEST through October 24, 08:00 CEST.
Ancient texts suggest that on the last night of October, vast masses of the undead squeeze out of their ‘final’ resting places and roam the Earth, expanding the boundaries of their possessions.
Inspired by the well-established tradition, Commanders from the World of Warships go on the prowl for monsters.
The Saving Transylvania event will be available during the first week after the release of Update 0.6.12. After that, the event will be available for the duration of Release 0.6.12, but only for teams assembled by players (just like other previous Operations).
But wait– have you ever ask yourself what happened to the Transylvania and her heroic defenders once they made their daring escape through the Portal? This time, the event will involve two parts, and we invite you to dive in to the sequel of the beloved tale of monstrous ships and hellfire-slinging catapults!

ST, Pan-Asian destroyers
All of the upgradable destroyers had their smoke screens changed. The stats are now equal for all the tiers.
Set up time – 40 seconds;…
Active time – 60 seconds;
Reload – 90 seconds for standard и 60 for premium equipment;
Charges – 4 for standard and 5 for premium equipment.
Decreased reload time lets these destroyer captains use the smoke screens to efficiently retreat in case of unsuccessful combat with an enemy destroyer. Also, there is a possibility to conceal one’s ship while firing at the enemy. As a part of our balancing effort we decreased the active time for the smoke, increased the set up time and decreased the overall number of charges.
New standard camouflage – Type “59”:
Reduces ship detectability by 3%;
Decreases the firing accuracy of the enemy by 4%;…
Increases the amount of XP earned per battle by 200%;
Cost: 125 Doubloons.
ST, Pan-Asian destroyers
Following destroyers had their torpedo stats changed:
LongJiang Tier II – torpedo range is increased to 8400 m (from 5010), detectability is increased to 1.1 (from 0.6);
Phra Ruang Tier III- torpedo range is increased to 7320 m (from 5010), velocity decreased by 1 knot (now 51 from 52), detectability increased to 1.1 (from 0.7);
ShenYang Tier IV -torpedo range is increased to 6390м (from 5490), velocity is increased by 1 knot (to 51 from 52), detectability increased to 1.1 (from 0.7).
These changes are designed to increase the chance to hit a battleship with torpedoes and appropriately decrease efficiency against cruisers.

We recently told you that the first season of Clan Battles kicks off with the release of Update 0.6.12 next week. During Season 1, Clan Battles will be fought at Tier X. We’re using the 7v7 format, with each team having only one battleship, and no carriers.
When the season starts, any player that has played a Random or Clan Battle with a Tier VIII-X ship after Update 0.6.12 goes live, will get a set of three special Tier X ships for temporary use: Japanese cruiser Zao, Japanese destroyer Shimakaze, and German battleship Großer Kurfürst. In Update 0.6.13: German cruiser Hindenburg, Soviet destroyer Grozovoi, and U.S. battleship Montana. In Update 0.6.14: Soviet cruiser Moskva, U.S. destroyer Gearing, and Japanese battleship Yamato.
Subtitles in our supported languages are also available by clicking on the icon in the bottom-right corner.
Season 1 of Clan Battles will last for three updates (nine weeks), from Update 0.6.12 to Update 0.6.15.
Clan Battles will be available during Prime Time only.
Prime Time occurs only on Wednesday, Thursday, Saturday and Sunday at the following times – displayed in CEST (UTC+2):
There will be four main leagues in the Clan Rating system, each divided into three groups.
- Squall League (the starting league)
- Gale League
- Storm League
- Typhoon League (the top league)
The names of the leagues are inspired by the sea, and convey the atmosphere of the rough ocean waters. The names of the leagues as you move along denote worsening weather at sea, just like the growing heat of battles when moving from one league to the next.
