Captains,

 

The event calendar for May is here - with a taste of what you might expect in updates, specials and more!

 

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

 

Updates

Something is cooking!

 

Update 0.6.5

A new update will come and bring some valuable goodies some time during May. We can't say more right now - but the Public Test will start soon!

 

Forum Upgrade

Around May 10 we will also upgrade your favourite forum (that is this one, just to be clear ;)). What can you expect? Well... Better visuals, calendars, question sections... and smoother operation! Keep your eyes peeled for the news!

 

New Ships

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

 

The Mighty Hood

 

You may have noticed her Facebook - the mighty Hood is already roaming the High Seas and will continue to do so throughout May!

Another upcoming Premium you may already meet in game - the majestic Imperial Japanese Navy carrier Kaga. Beware of her bombers!

Missions

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

 

 

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 the little island of Tulagi. They immediately suffered a surprise raid by the USS Yorktown. Causing significant losses, this raid set the scene 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!

03 - 10 May WEEKLY MISSIONS - Battle of the Coral Sea (1942)

  • Attempting to secure Papua - New Guinea, the Japanese invasion convoy bound for Port Moresby encountered an unexpected problem - two US Navy aircraft carriers in the area. The first ever battle between aircraft carriers started - and while the Americans lost more ships, the Japanese were forced to abandon the advance against Port Moresby.
  • All classes were involved in this battle... But for the top prize you should brush up on your carrier handling!
  • Top prize: Battle Hardened camouflages - and Defensive AA modification!

10 - 17 May: WEEKLY MISSIONS - Battle of the Strait of Otranto (1917)

  • While World War I in the Adriatic was mostly static, the Austro-Hungarian navy did try to break through the Allied blockade several times. Time to remember even less known battles!
  • Just shoot up everything you see (as long as it is in the Red team that is!)
  • Top prize: A Captain for Bougainville - with his own bunk and extensive Naval academy training!

17 - 24 May: WEEKLY MISSIONS - Bombardment of Ancona (1915)

  • After last week we are staying in the Mediterranean - just two years earlier. When Italy declared war in 1915, the Austro-Hungarian navy did not hesitate and quickly launched a surprise naval bombardment of strategic targets.
  • Let's burn the enemy port to the ground!
  • Top prize: Battle Hardened camouflages - and Spotting Aircraft Modification 1!

24 - 31 May: WEEKLY MISSIONS - Battle of Tsushima (1905)

  • Tsushima, 112 years ago. The Japanese Navy's own Trafalgar, the battle that broke the back of the Imperial Russian Navy... And the battle that, ultimately, paved the way to the Pearl Harbor and Midway. 
  • This is an all-out battle. Sink them all!
  • Top prize: You will see - it's a surprise!

 

Specials

 

05 - 09 May: SPECIAL - Fleet Review

  • Victory Day celebrations are here - and with them some nice surprises.

13 - 16 May: SPECIAL - Nation Spotlight - German Battleships

  • Boost your progress through the tree!

20 - 23 May: SPECIAL - Class Spotlight - Carriers

  • Practice mastering the decisive weapon of WWII at sea!

27 - 30 May: SPECIAL - Expand the Port

  • There are never too many port berths!

 

Events

Clash of the Elements

The Clash ends on May 4 - however you will have until May 18 to spend the coins! Get the goodies as long as they are there!

Hood is an instant buy ofc. But should she not be t6, (as she is just above Tiger/Kongo that is t5), and not t7?

Missed opportunity with De Grasse. The real one ended up being a bit like a French Atlanta, but this is just a clone of the La Galissonierre

That French cruiser graphic looks like an ad for toothpaste. I want it as my wallpaper.

Well, the hunt for Bismarck may turn into the hunt for Hood.....:look:

Rumor says this will be something like the Graf Spee event but with the Hood as the reward!:)

At least thats what people say.

I hope for the best! :rolleyes:

I'd expect to see the Colbert take that spot as a higher tier Premium French Cruiser, they were sister-ships after all. Introducing a Premium that is very similar to the ships in the line rather than a more unique design makes sense to me in terms of captain training as they'll use the same skills, that's just my take on it anyway.

NA gets to know everything upfront as of now. Requirements, rewards,...

This new EU-format is better than the old, but is still seriously lagging behind compared to what NA and RU got. Why the secrecy? Why the release of critical detail on the shortest notice possible? Can you give me a good reason of why you won't make the announcements a monthly thing? It's not that the weekly/weekend missions create a hype or something, since 9/10 they are very underwhelming and uninspiring (removal of the X2 first win bonus when there is a commander XP event happening, while every other server gets those combined). 

 

This month it seems like the same stuff we are being fed for months now: dull and uninspired. It's like the "Weekly Offers" on the Premium shop, always the same, always underwhelming, always not really worth it.

Have seen the new gamelauncher on the NA-Site. Wondering if it is working here too? :hmm:

You are so right. and this looks great for NA : - Changing Things Up for WorldofWarships.com

I have stopped subs on EU and now also use the NA client for the better way they are treated.

Would the 'Hunt for Bismark' event consist of; 'Buy Hood, then play for Bismark'? Call me an old cynic, or maybe it's a lucky guess.

Edit; I was close. Will the event be time gated, like the Hunt For Graf Spee, or will we be able to chase it in our own good time? Its a juicy prize to go for.

Correction, from what I hear she's a pre nerf Gallissionere, meaning that she's actually competitive.

you mean a slight improvement or basicly someone spend 5 more minutes than usual on this "event calendar" . wg till you get your sh.t together I will not consider this breadcrumbs of information an event calendar. maybe its pleasing for some but to most intelligent players above 10y old its still a laugh
