Naval Battle: Clans Competition


We welcome a new event for Clans to come together and earn valuable resources every week!

If you and your clanmates get past the qualifying Preparation mission during the week, you will be able to pit yourselves against other Clans in Random, Co-op, and Ranked Battles at the weekend. Win these Engagements and earn stars by completing special missions to take home the biggest possible haul of resources!

What’s in it for my Clan?
Oil is a valuable Clan resource in World of Warships, being necessary to build structures in the Clan Base. Every structure provides Clan members with a permanent bonus that can include: reduced costs of researchable ships, bonuses to various types of XP per battle, and even a bonus to the amount of earned resources for the use in Arsenal – Steel and Coal. You can learn more about the benefits of the Naval Base in a separate dedicated article.

Up until now it has been possible to earn Oil as a reward for completing combat missions, challenges, and events, or to obtain it from containers. But with Update 0.8.0 comes another way – the Naval Battle competition.

Duration
The Naval Battle competition will be held every week without interruption starting on Monday, February 18, 2019.
  • Monday-Thursday: Clans complete a mission to qualify for the week’s Engagement.
  • Friday-Sunday: Eligible clans compete against each other.


Clan Registration
In Update 0.8.0, a new section titled Naval Battle will appear in the Clan tab within the game client, where you can find a calendar with the event’s schedule. A Commander, or their Deputy Commanders will be able to register the Clan for participation in the competition for each coming week.

Preparation
from Monday till Thursday
To earn the right to compete against other Clans in the event, your Clan has to complete a special Clan mission with a set objective of earning a certain amount of base XP.

  • The mission conditions depend on the total size of the Clan.
  • It can be completed from Monday till Thursday in battles of any type, except for Training Battles.
  • The maximum Contribution of each player is limited. Thus, the more active players you have, the easier it will be to achieve the common goal.
  • You can check the progress of the common mission completion, as well as your Contribution towards it, in the Preparation tab in the Naval Battle section. There you can see the date and time until which it’s possible to complete the combat mission.
  • The common combat mission is divided into several parts, the completion of which will bring you Oil.
Once your Clan has completed the mission, a message will be displayed confirming its successful completion. If the Clan doesn't fully complete the mission, it will not receive access to the next stage. However, it will still earn Oil for the progress that's been made.

Engagement
from Friday till Sunday
On Friday the Preparation stage ends and the Engagement begins! Clans from all servers which have completed the combat mission will compete in Random, Co-op, and Ranked Battles from Friday till Sunday.
  • Clan members will receive access to a special table at the beginning of the Engagement. The table will display ships by type and nation, with 19 categories in total.
  • A chain of combat missions is available for each category. The requirement is the same for all missions: earn the specified amount of base XP per battle.
The missions can be completed on ships of any tier in Random, Co-op, and Ranked Battles.

The Clan objective is to surpass its opponent by the number of stars earned for completing the missions on the table.
To start completing the missions, players need to enter the Naval Battles section in the Clan tab, and confirm their participation in the competition by pressing the “Count Attempts” button. From that moment, their attempts will be counted as part of the common result of the Clan.

Note that the series of battles counted in the Engagement can be interrupted at any time. If you quit an unfinished battle and interrupt the series of battles by pressing the 'Count Attempt's button, the result of this battle will still be counted as an attempt.
If a player completes a mission, they acquire a star for their Clan, which gains the Clan access to a more complicated mission. An attempt is spent on each battle regardless of its result. Each player has ten attempts only for an Engagement.

An Engagement can end with a victory, draw, or defeat. The result determines the amount of Oil and number of special rating points the Clan receives. These points affect the selection of opponents for the Engagement. The Clan’s rating can be checked out in the relevant tab of the Naval Battle section. This is a non-decreasing rating, the increase of which depends on the success of the Clan in the competition during the Engagement stage.


Rewards
Oil is the main reward for the Naval Battle competition. It is earned by all participating Clans according to the activity of their participation.
  • Clan can earn up to 800 Oil for the Preparation stage
  • Clan can earn 50 Oil for every 10 stars in the Engagement
  • Clan can earn 700 Oil for victory
  • For a draw – 400 Oil
  • For a defeat – 300 Oil
Oil earned during the Preparation stage and obtained for stars will be added immediately, while Oil earned for the Engagement results will be added when the stage ends.

Details
  • Those players who join a Clan after the Preparation stage is over will not be able to participate in the current week's Engagement. However, participation will be possible again in the following week.
  • If a player leaves a Clan after pressing the "Count Attempts" button, the stars earned by them will remain in the Clan.
  • If members of the same Clan enter a battle in a Division on ships of the same category, the results will be counted in ascending order. In other words, if both ships of the same type earn enough base XP for either mission in a chain in a battle, both missions will be considered completed in the same battle.
    • For example, the following missions are set for the category of Soviet destroyers: earn 1,000 base XP; and earn 1,100 base XP.
    • Two players participate in a Division consisting of Soviet destroyers Udaloi and Tashkent. The player on Udaloi earns 1,000 base XP for the battle, while their comrade earns 1,050. The player on Udaloi earns a star for the Clan, opening access to a more complicated mission. However, Tashkent scored lower than required for the second mission. Thus, the attempt has been spent in vain. If Tashkent had earned 1,100 base XP or more, both players would have brought stars to their Clan for completing both missions.
Good luck in earning Oil for your Clan and raking in stars!

Wichita: Bruiser Cruiser


Wichita is a unique tier VIII heavy cruiser that inherited her architecture from Brooklyn-type cruisers. This was the last cruiser to be built according to the London Naval Treaty limitations. Due to her efficient 203-mm artillery, high speed, excellent maneuverability, and AA defenses, the cruiser has a multipurpose function in battle.
https://youtu.be/gBnqbh6soyE
An American classic and a real gift for the old New Orleans gameplay aficionados. A heavy cruiser with effective 203 mm artillery, able to boast high speeds, excellent maneuverability, a good AA defense system, and standard "American" set of consumables that can be applied to all occasions, she is a versatile and comfortable-to-play ship, built with credit-earning in mind.

Key features:
  • Nine 203 mm guns, placed across three main turrets. Her mediocre firing range (15.8 km) is compensated by flat-trajectory ballistics and effective ricochet angles of her AP shells. Good at sinking destroyers and inflicting serious damage to cruisers at medium range.
  • Fine AA defense system consisting of the famous Bofors, Oerlikon, Mk24, and Mk30 guns.
  • High maximum speed of 33.6 knots in comparison with other American cruisers and a fast rudder shift time of just 6 seconds.
  • More credits earned for each battle and 50% more XP earned by the camouflage.

The Premium Shop will offer several bundles featuring this Premium ship.
The first 25 battles played with this warship in any type of battles will bring you three times more XP than usual. Available once per account, and only until June 30, 2019.
If you already have this ship in your Port, you will receive 11,500 doubloons as compensation.

For a detailed look at the ship's technical specifications, follow this link.
