Captains,

 

The event calendar for April is here - with a dose of what you may expect in updates, specials and more!

 

DISCLAIMER: Any and all items in the calendar are subject to change - for fresh information follow our portal and Facebook!

 

New Ships

As you may already know, new ships are coming soon - with a bit of luck, you may meet them in April!

 

French Cruiser Branch

 

You may have seen them already - the French cruisers, going from the tiny colonial aviso Bougainville up to the huge main guns of Henri IV, will be arriving soon! You may start meeting them in game in the production test already from the April 1st. The French are not a joke!

Duca d'Aosta

April is also the month of new nations - alongside the French, you may start seeing the snappy red-and-white trim of Emanuele Filiberto Duca d'Aosta.

Schuka

You may have heard about a new, perfectly balanced ship with a new weapon system coming to game - just leaving this here...

Missions

As usual, April missions will be themed around naval historical events that took place in April!

 

29 March - 05 April WEEKLY MISSIONS - Operation C (1942)

  • After the campaign for the Far East oil fields was finished the Japanese navy carriers conducted a daring raid into the Indian Ocean to keep the allies penned in.
  • Cruiser action awaits!
  • Top prize: PAPA PAPA flags and a bunch of Consumables

05 - 12 April: WEEKLY MISSIONS - Action Off Lofoten (1940)

  • While the invasion of Norway was in full swing in April 1940, the "Terrible Twins" - Scharnhorst and Gneisenau - ran into a brief skirmish against the battlecruiser HMS Renown.
  • Get ready to deal some serious damage to battleships!
  • Top prize: A Captain for Gneisenau - with full experience from the battle and his own bunk!

12 - 19 April: WEEKLY MISSIONS - Battle of the Tarigo Convoy (1941)

  • In a vicious night battle, a British destroyer force ambushed an Italian supply convoy headed to Libya. Losing HMS Mohawk they managed to destroy two Italian destroyers and all 5 cargo ships.
  • This mission chain will give some work for the torpedo polishing guy!
  • Top prize: Some valuable signal flags - and a pack of brand new camouflages!

19 - 26 April: WEEKLY MISSIONS - Second Battle of Dover Strait (1917)

  • When a pair of British Destroyer Leaders clashed with a superior force of German small destroyers (Torpedo boats in German parlance), nobody really expected anything special. This however changed when HMS Broke rammed the German G42 - and the German crew tried to board the enemy!
  • We will not ask you to ram and board enemy ships - but be prepared for some hot destroyer and cruiser action.
  • Top prize: A pack of signals - and Propulsion Modification 2!

26 April - 03 May: WEEKLY MISSIONS- Invasion of Tulagi (1942)

  • As part of the expansion towards Australia and to cover the invasion of Port Moresby, the Japanese fleet established a base on a little island of Tulagi. The were immediately suffered a surprise raid by the USS Yorktown. Causing noticeable losses, this raid set the scene directly for the Battle of the Coral Sea.
  • No rules. No ship class limits. Just destruction and experience!
  • Top prize: New camouflage pack - and some Consumables!

01 - 04 April: SPECIAL - Destroyers on the move!

Big improvement in telling us final rewards and general idea of the weekly mission chains. Could still be better but it is a good step in the right direction.:great:

 

Now we need that same for the weekend specials in regards to the rewards. Unless the different XP boosts is all there is to them. Then a question comes to mind in hindsight of last months weekends.

- Will we have double XP on all those weekends and/or will it be the sole reward for some of them?

I'm curious what this new camouflage will be.

Overall looks rather nice this month, especially with a new cruiser line.

Hull-mounted torpedo launchers?

Does anyone know anything about the (blurry) event picture? My first guess was the Haifuri collaboration but I couldn't find any emblems or so which could fit (didn't watch the anime yet). Any other guesses?

 

Edited for clarification which picture I mean.

That'd have been refered in the submarine's description? Now where do you see these rockets on the added pictures?

In other words - doubtful.

Was tempted to use the 'report' function.  

The choice of 'top prize' as phrasing for the weekly mission indicates you Edited? Which is it?  

Continue with those crappy, tiered mission systems.  

 

Seriously, close down the WG EU office, and migrate us all to the US.  

  

By the way: the DD special is.. nothing special at all.  

The T2 and T3 DD are.. crap;  

Cheap crap is still crap.  

As 'cheap' DD a T4 premium would probably be better; as (nearly) all DD's at that tier are fun/excellent.  

and the T7 Leningrad, well.. unlike the higher tier Russian DD's, it has slow turret rotation; meaning it benefits a lot relatively from 'Expert Marksman'. But that means a different captain... so.. not that useful (well; not ideal) as a captain trainer either imo; except for the lower tiers.  

  

A tier 8 premium DD would be by far more interesting, because it gets Concealment Module.  

E.g.: the Kagero is crap, thanks to WG 'rebalancing' (=messing up) the IJN DD line; a T8 IJN 'premium' DD could be very welcome; stealthy, fastER than those damn T8 IJN tugboats, and something like 2x3 F3 torps, for high risk (high reward plz..) gameplay.  

For getting to T8, in theory the DD should be better than.. Shiratsuyu.  

  

A tier 8 British premium DD would be welcome too; then the British line, when the others finally arrive, will have a premium T6, T7, and T8 ship. (the Hood as leaked seems like it will end up underwhelming.. That thing is gonna be on the same tier  as Nagato, Shinyhorse,.. and face NC, Bismarck, Amagi.. at least semi-regularly.)  

I just can't offer any enthousiam for French cruisers, sorry, don't care.  

A T8 premium German DD could be interesting; 150mm guns as option or so, a different torpedo layout,.. 

  

As for the event: it sounds like only the SEA server is gonna get the 'premium' IJN captain.. sigh..

So the 0.6.4 is for the 21st of April? Or maybe the 20th since it's a Thursday. Interesting...

That happens then you read a sentence without context...

My bad. I don't give this sub any attention. For me this thing is just April fools.

Thumbs up for the more info that's being given for the missions. Now we just need better missions. 

 

 

NA has a survey regarding the portal, and the desires of the community, why don't we? Instead of just deciding out of the blue of not posting calendars on portals due to "few clicks" (what a non-argument btw).

https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSck_R1x4lHNecBnltFURxcItdDh4F-dFnz5V8MAqKz7FpXybw/viewform


Or are you scared the feedback of such survey would be negative? Hiding and ignoring the issues is NOT the way to go, fyi.

So... when are we going to get our monthly marathon for a low-tier ship? NA had KAtori, now ASIA has Mikasa (never forget, the boat that every server could get for free already, except EU)

 

https://worldofwarships.asia/en/news/specials-and-events/mikasa-marathon/

 

 

SO, next month the EU for König ALbert, or is that considered spoiling?

If we could... she's not in the premium shop, nor in the techtree.

She was removed mostly because OP, they most likely won't give an OP ship for free.

 

Oh, didn't know that... But why is she still for sale on NA & RU for months in a row now, and was on offer on ASIA last month?

Repeatable (daily) missions this weekend on the WG-EU server. And we even kept our weekend doubles.

 

There is another step in the right direction. Now you just need to start to make those missions more accesible instead of only allowing the highest tier players, with specific ships on top, a chance to play them.

 

On another note... on a weekend with japanese focus, why are two out of three missions limited to american ships?

NA already got that down it seems: 4 missions, 3 true repeatable (once per battle), all T4+ instead of T8-T10...

Well the EU had Katori for free already quite some time ago during the GNB campaign, plus in contests etc... Funny thing that when we have something others don't, nobody here seems to notice :hiding:

Cannot promise König Albert for next month, however there were quite a few chances to get free ships - and there will be in the future as well. Cannot really say more - keep watching the portal and facebook though.

No, it won't be Dragon. Patience - that item ont he calendar is coming soon and shall be revealed when the stars are right. Stay tuned!

 

EDIT: Oh, for some insights you may want to check this PODCAST from yesterday :honoring:
