Snowflakes!

It’s a new festive special event that’s set to last throughout Update 0.7.12. You are probably well aware by now that your first win of the day with each ship scores an XP bonus, right? “Snowflakes” is a bonus you can claim the same way, but only once per update.

To knock a Snowflake off a ship, you need to win a battle... a victorious battle with Tier VI-VII ships brings you Coal while ships of Tier VIII-X will receive Steel.

 

 
Did i understand right, i can buy as many T8-T10 ships as i want to and farm steel for a win?

The events we mentioned above are designed to fire up the New Year celebrations and give you a chance to obtain valuable rewards—and Steel! However, it doesn't mean we are planning to offer such specials on a regular basis.

So farming for Balansgrad might take decade or so. Add another decade for potato to get as many T8+ ships as possible.

Has anyone seen the amounts we're talking about here? This *might* be sufficient to put both of the original steel ships within reach (with coupons)...

 

Edit: in conjunction with the grind/paid-for missions, of course!

Leaked steel quota was 8k+6k+100 per ship IIRC. So up to Flint and mayyybe Black. Still no Stalingrabs for plebs

 

On other hand those with steel can get some more for Bonjour or whatever is that T10 Alsace boaty.

I worked out 19.2K for Flint and Black (assuming coupon use for both, so you're going to wait a bit), so you need to find 5.2K from ships - if each T8-10 gives the same amount of steel (?), one needs 52 ships in that tier bracket, if one has zero steel from other sources...

 

I think that's sensible: making the two older ones more widely available isn't too much of two fingers to the old lags, but the newer ones would be a bit soon...?

Are you this desperate to be the nr1 poster?

I clearly wrote once per ship per update, but thanks for your input.

That would put me on 19,5k steel, one SC away from the Balansgrad....

If you already knew, why ask the question in the first place?

Definitely, the name is genius! :Smile_trollface:

 

Still I wonder how much steel, a win will be. Will it be different for a tier 9 compared to a tier 10?

And how much coal?

My gods, I kept most of my ships, I will be a busy man! :Smile_teethhappy:

 

And depending on the price, I might even go for the extra campaign. Might.

That seems a lot of steel up for grabs considering the comparable time and effort it would take to earn it through playing ranked.

Black is nastier... And cheaper as well... Only consolation is most of them are going to camp in front of Worcesters and few seconds later heading to forums demanding radar buff...

I also kinda like the name :)

 

To address the second point - we don't know yet. The numbers that were circulating are purely preliminary and subject to change.

I can't imagine there won't be an increase with higher tier ships - it would give people a motive to get some new ships, which would almost certainly mean more money for WG...
