Captains, I have some good news. :cap_horn:

 

We've been talking to the dev team about your feedback regarding the new collector's club rewards and the conditions attached to them.

 

We all agree that having to play the all the ships in your port for at least one game will be confusing and difficult to track outside of December (yay for snowflakes!). Similarly, figuring out when you have played 100 battles with the ships in port is going to be tough.

 

So what we are going to do is remove both those conditions from the rewards! To get the collector's rewards you now only have to have the requisite number of ships in port - that's it. :cap_like:

So if we rebuy a silver ship after even starts, we automatically receive its snowflake bonus upon purchase, or we have to play a game in it?

 

EDIT: It would seem snowflakes are one thing and collector's club something else. Or at least @wilkatis_LV says so.

The emblems are a way to reward people who have been collecting ships and have a lot of them in port.

The Collector's Club started as an exclusively Russian group of people who have a special flag, a subforum for themselves, special shop offers, and participate in testing of new ships.

WG, after a long time of non-RU users pestering them about it, decided to implement the Collector's Club worldwide. But in a downsized version, since right now we only get emblems.

https://forum.worldofwarships.eu/topic/78200-collectors-club/

 

on page 11 you can find a translation of the announcement for the RU server:

 

Zitat

Hello commanders!

 

 

Today, we would like to finally dot the i in the situation that has developed with the club "Collectors". To do this, let's plunge into history a bit and remember what this initiative represented and why it was created, as well as what its future awaits.

 


Club "Collectors" (abbreviated KK) is a group of very active players, which are united by love for ships and marine themes. By creating this club, we wanted to give the players involved additional opportunities that, for a number of reasons, could not be extended to all.

 

Such opportunities included:

  • an additional separate store ("The table of orders");

  • direct channel of communication of club members with developers;

  • a flag in the game;

  • closed section on the forum and, accordingly, a separate group;

  • competitions for club members only.

 

The criterion for joining the KK was the presence in Port of a player of at least 50 different ships and the level of the account at least 13th.

 

Within the club, the group "Test collectors" (CI) was singled out. To enter into it it was possible under certain conditions:

  • already be a QC participant;

  • after getting acquainted with the additional rules of the CI group to apply for membership.

 

CIs had the additional opportunity to take part in testing new ships. Unfortunately, most of the privileges have recently been frozen, because:

  • current activities required a lot of manual work;

  • for the most part they could only be used by visitors to the forum.

 

At the moment, we want to completely rebuild the approach to QA work. A number of limiting factors and causes have been eliminated, so we are announcing for you a new format of the club, which is ready to launch.

 

IMPORTANT:

Immediately note that we publish preliminary information, tk. we understand that you are waiting for it for a long time. Not everything will work instantly, something will have to wait, but you will already have an idea of where we are heading.

 


Club "Collectors" 2.0 are all the same active players who love ships, naval themes and our game.

 

The player automatically enters the club as soon as he reaches the 15th level of the account and in his Port 50 ships are collected (any, but at least one fight must be played at least.) All modes except the training room are taken into account. The addition takes place in the first week of the quarter. The next addition to the club will be at the beginning of July 2018.

 

What does the collector get after joining the club?

  1. Group "Collector" and access to the closed section of the club on the forum.

  2. Flag of the club member.

  3. A patch with the club's logo in the game.

 

Note: before the flag could be obtained only 3 months after entering the club, i.e. there was a probationary period, in which now there is no need. Since July, the flag of the club's member collectors will receive immediately, a badge too, but as soon as it is entered into the game.

What to do next?

By increasing the number of ships in Porto, the collector can collect a collection of special emblems:

  • "Collector of the III degree" - for the presence of 100 ships in Porto during the last 100 fights;

  • "Collector of the II degree" - for 150 ships in Porto during the last 100 fights;

  • "Collector of the I degree" - for 200 ships in Porto during the last 100 fights;

  • "Collector. Elite "- for 250 ships in Porto during the last 100 fights.

Thus, the more ships remain permanently in your collection, the higher the rank of your logo.

 


And what about the previous additional opportunities?

 

Premium Club Store

Sale of property in the Premium Club store was carried out in 3 ways:

1. packages for club members in the main Premium store;

2. goods for doubloons in the "order table";

3. pre-sale packages for new ships.

 

Through special packages for members of the club in the Premium store at various times sold ships, camouflage and flags. Through the "Table of orders", but already for doubloons, it was possible to purchase similar goods. Preliminary sales, however, allowed to get a new ship to Port before other players, but only as part of the most expensive package.

 

In the framework of the new policy of working with the community, one of the principles of which is the availability of any (not rewarded or exclusively reserved for partners) goods to all players, we decided not to deal with the development of the new concept of the Premium Club store, and instead try to put it on sale, in one way or another, as many ships and property as possible for absolutely all players. Thus, the need for a separate store for the club will disappear.

 

Already this summer, follow the update of the Premium store and property, which you can buy in the client of the game. For example, we will return many ships on sale in the game client for doubloons and in the Premium store.

 

Testing of ships by club members

Collectors were given the opportunity, through a personal application in a special topic, to join the "Test collectors" (CI) subgroup and take part in testing the ships. We pursued 2 main goals:

1. collect data and feedback on ships;

2. give players involved the opportunity to be involved in the creation of the game.

 

Unfortunately, to achieve the first goal, our experiment in this format failed. The number of players testing new equipment has increased significantly, but this did not affect the data and feedback that came to us. Those. Previously, developers and a group of super test (CT) were engaged in this, then a group of CIs was added to them, and the situation for us as conditional customers did not change. But we saw that the second goal is more or less achieved, so it was decided to go to test drives.

 

Ships were issued by CI a few days before the release. But here we also suffered a failure: the growing group of CI required serious control and huge time costs on our part. It was not possible to automate this: there were no resources and technical capabilities. All this, as a growing com, led to the fact that the test drives stopped. The concept was recognized as unsuccessful.

 

We understand that such activity is very interesting for players, and we will continue to work in this direction. Perhaps it will be a different format for early access to new technology or rental. While we do not know, but are ready to work out the idea within the framework of the already common loyalty program, so that each player can get such an opportunity - by understandable rules.

 

Developer's answers to questions from club members

Within the framework of the new policy of openness at the official World of Warships forum, for all players, active work is already under way to answer questions and solve problems of players.

 

Additionally, any player can write to one of the special mailboxes, if he does not want to post the question for public discussion:

1 mailbox (feedback) - wows_feedback@wargaming.net.

2 mailbox (complaints) - wows_complaints@wargaming.net.

3 mailbox (offers) - wows_suggestions@wargaming.net.

 

Flag in the game

Now every player, entering the club, gets it right away.

 

Separate private section

The closed section remains, it will only undergo some changes in connection with the new concept.

 


Once again we want to focus your attention on the fact that we, like you, are inclined to develop ideas that we developed inside the club, but in a different format. You will see the first fruits in June-July of this year. We will continue to analyze your activity and improve these opportunities within reasonable limits. And now we are working on a loyalty system and veterans' awards.

 

Thank you for your attention and good luck in the battles!

That is not new, dear Comrade, welcome to the New Social Soviet ... thing'a-ling :). All animals are equal but pigs are top of the pyramid Just beware the hounds ;).  To be seriously, that is good news. I currently have 107 ships at the port, most of them are Premiums...
