Update 0.8.6 opens up the French arc, which is set to span two updates. Players will enjoy a new game event, gain early access to the French destroyer branch, explore the new Crash Zone Alpha map, and experience many other features.

A new arc centered around French destroyers is starting very soon.

At less than 2,000 tons, U.S.S. Benham embodies the pre-war American concept of a small Treaty destroyer, loosely based on the overall concept of the Mahan-class, but with one big difference: Benham carries the deadliest torpedo arsenal ever placed on a U.S. destroyer. https://youtu.be/8FiMPTBXlbw History U.S.S. Benham was the lead ship of her class of 10 destroyers, built between 1936 and 1939. She was laid down in Kearny, New Jersey, and completed in early 1939. After a few patrols off the U.S. East coast, she was ordered to make for Pearl Harbor, Hawaii, in the buildup to the Pacific War in 1940. When the Japanese mobile carrier force struck Pearl Harbor’s naval base on December 7, 1941, Benham was luckily only about a day’s sail away on escort duties for the aircraft carrier U.S.S. Enterprise. Following this first battle of the war, Benham continued serving as an escort for carrier task forces throughout the first half of 1942. This landed her a front-row seat at important events such as the start of the Doolittle raid in April and the decisive battle of Midway in June, during which Benham participated in rescue efforts for survivors of the sinking U.S.S. Yorktown. https://wowsp-wows-ru.wgcdn.co/dcont/fb/image/790a6546-97e9-11e9-88d7-8cdcd4b147d4.jpg In August 1942, the ship would shore up the ranks of the naval force assembled to take part in the first major U.S. offensive of the Pacific war: the Guadalcanal Campaign. This brutal, months-long battle was an exemplary instance of combined arms fighting, with fierce infantry skirmishes taking place just a few kilometers away from some of the most intensely fought naval battles of the war. On the night of November 14–15, Benham would be called on to step away from the relative safety of carrier escort missions to take on a far deadlier task. The second naval battle of Guadalcanal unfolded in the narrow strait between the islands of Guadalcanal and Savo. The American fleet, consisting of two battleships and four destroyers, advanced under the cover of darkness to intercept Japan’s last hope of keeping a hold over the island. The Japanese fleet—made up of the Kongo-class battleship Kirishima, four cruisers, and nine destroyers—was making one last effort to retake the vital airfield in the North of Guadalcanal. Benham and the other destroyers led the formation of battleships South Dakota and Washington, when the latter two opened fire on distant radar contacts. The destroyers first fired illuminating shells, and then began firing off 5-inch shells at a forward group of Fubuki-class destroyers. However, before the Americans could prepare their torpedoes, a hail of enemy shellfire and torpedoes overwhelmed the destroyers, sinking two immediately and mortally wounding Benham. A single Long Lance torpedo struck her in the...Naval Legends: U.S.S.

How does it differ from Clan Battles? What rewards await those who participate? You'll find the answers to these and other questions below! Basic Rules ● Rewards ● Achievements ● Maps https://steamcdn-a.akamaihd.net/steamcommunity/public/images/clans/31013613/e893e234cfe8ff71689d55d99140c542d9bad3eb.jpg Basic Rules In contrast to Clan Battles, Clan Brawls take place throughout a single day, and only victories are counted. Two Clan Brawls are scheduled for Update 0.8.5: July 6—for Tier VIII ships July 20—for Tier X ships Each Clan will be able to select its preferred prime time to play—it can choose to fight either during its own server’s prime time, or matches can be made on different servers if their times are more convenient: CIS 14:00 – 20:00 UTC EU 15:00 – 21:00 UTC NA 22:00 – 04:00 UTC ASIA 10:00 – 16:00 UTC Please note: you won't be able to change the prime time once it has been selected! Any Clan can participate in a Clan Brawl. Battles are held in a 7 vs. 7 format. A single team can't include more than one battleship. Any number of teams from a single Clan can fight in a Brawl if the composition of the teams meets the listed conditions. Only victories are counted for the Rating. Since only victories are counted, and defeats aren't taken into account, there’s no option to select Alpha or Bravo Ratings in the Clan Brawl. The matchmaker matches teams with similar numbers of victories. Victories earned in the Clan Brawl aren’t counted towards the requirements to receive Clan Battle emblems. If two teams share the same number of victories, the higher position in the Rating will be given to the Clan that gained their last victory first. https://wowsp-wows-eu.wgcdn.co/dcont/fb/image/tmb/58ac04f4-9bcb-11e9-9353-38eaa735f4cc_1200x.jpg The Clan Brawl economy is completely in line with that of Clan Battles: Victory: 2,500 base XP and 300,000 credits (without modifiers applied). Defeat: 250 base XP and 150,000 credits (without modifiers applied). Draw: both teams earn an amount of XP and credits equal to that received for a lost battle. Rewards In the Clan Brawl to be held on July 6, players will be able to receive up to {STEAM_CLAN_IMAGE}/31013613/5c621e67cc47237e35201fe7de304e294f539ebb.png2,500,000 credits; 100,000 Commander XP; and {STEAM_CLAN_IMAGE}/31013613/d2a834d5cd113949cdb3f44cc7802c875a87e8ce.png5,000 Coal!

Due to the decrease in the number of days, the complexity of the season is reduced - by 5, 4 and 3 ranks you need to get one star less to reach the next rank. The rewards of the season remain unchanged. Prepare for heated battles in two new seasons of Ranked Sprint on Tier VII ships. The Rules have changed a little: the fifth season will be fought in Domination mode, and the sixth season—in the Updated Epicenter mode. If you missed the previous seasons of Ranked Sprint and want to know more about it, our article will answer your questions.

Ranked Sprint achievements aren’t inherited from previous Ranked Seasons, and aren’t transferred to those that follow. Stars earned in Ranked Sprint are not counted as the stars required for receiving Ranked Battle emblems. Rules All players with access to Ranked Battles in their Service Record are eligible for participation in Ranked Sprint. Beginners in World of Warships will have to play 130 battles in any of the available modes in order to gain access to them. Only Tier VII ships are allowed. Battles are fought in a 6 vs. 6 format. Team lineups are mirrored in terms of ship types. The number of ranks is 10, which is less than in a regular season. The ranks are combined into two leagues: The Second League covers Rank 10 through Rank 6, and the First covers Rank 5 through Rank 1. All players start battles at Rank 10. Ranks 10, 9, 8, 5, and 3 are irrevocable. Players can't lose stars at Ranks 10 and 9. By winning battles, players earn the stars needed to climb the ranking ladder. For the majority of ranks, a defeat means a lost star. Players receive a bonus star for each new rank acquired. The player with the most base XP in a team doesn't lose a star upon their team’s defeat. The fifth season is held in Domination mode The sixth season is held in the Updated Epicenter mode. https://steamcdn-a.akamaihd.net/steamcommunity/public/images/clans/31013613/e238bdf9b0ca25175a42d36...Rogue Wave: The Full GuideJul 3, 2019 - Community Announcementshttps://steamcdn-a.akamaihd.net/steamcommunity/public/images/clans/31013613/108418290c8a551935856633af1cff928d795170.jpg Nine modified destroyers in a brand new four-team game mode, an array of post-apocalyptic camouflages, and enclosing Wall of Fire that forces close-quarters brawls.

We’ve modified nine destroyers and divided them into three classes specifically for Savage Battles: Octopus Low-detectability ships, armed with powerful torpedoes that are capable of pulverizing everyone who dares to stand in their way. Their main guns function in a similar way to secondary batteries, and are operated by a form of artificial intelligence that was passed to us from the great ancients. It's noteworthy though, that the main battery is not the Octopuses’ best card.

The British certainly weren’t shy about flaunting her, and flexed their naval muscles by parading her on world tours and ceremonial trips abroad during peacetime. At the time of her completion in 1920, she was the largest warship in the Royal Navy, a title she retained for 21 years until she met a sudden and catastrophic end at the hands of battleship Bismarck during the battle of the Denmark Strait. https://youtu.be/DJErKECmFQU History Hood was ordered in the heat of World War I, only two months before the 1916 Battle of Jutland unfolded. She was intended to be the lead ship of four Admiral-class battlecruisers, which were meant to be successors to the Queen Elizabeth-class dreadnoughts. This justified the new ships’ eight 381 mm guns and considerable armor thickness, which was on par with their predecessors. Moreover, she incorporated new sloped armor and underwater torpedo protection. However, one decisive thing set Hood apart from the dreadnoughts of her time: her speed. HMS Hood could reach a very respectable top speed of 32 knots, far outclassing the 24 knots that the Queen Elizabeth-class ships could achieve. By the Royal Navy’s standards at the time, it was this particular trait that landed Hood the classification of “battlecruiser." Launched from her slipway at John Brown’s Shipyard on the Scottish Clyde river in August 1918, she wasn’t commissioned until after the end of the First World War. Construction of the three other planned ships of her class had been postponed in 1917 due to scarcity of resources, and was finally cancelled in 1919, giving Hood sole claim to being the largest warship on the planet. During the interwar years, Hood participated in ceremonial trips to different parts of the world, famously completing her circumnavigation of the globe in 1924. Her imposing presence was also used to protect trade routes, as part of what were known as the Neutrality Patrols, off the Spanish coast during the Civil War. https://steamcdn-a.akamaihd.net/steamcommunity/public/images/clans/31013613/2c2ee701ae719ea48618b3fad4253dbdb2adcbf3.jpg The start of World War II saw Hood leading the Home Fleet’s battlecruiser squadron based at Scapa Flow, Scotland. In June 1940, with fall of France imminent, Hood was assigned the position of flagship of Mediterranean Force H. As such, Hood was one of the ships charged with the task of attacking the formerly allied French fleet at Mers-el-Kébir. She hit French battleship Dunkerque with four 381 mm shells in the ensuing action, but was also hit in return. Hood had been sailing side-by-side with Dunkerque only a few months prior during the hunt for the German sisterships Scharnhorst and Gneisenau. Hood returned to Scapa Flow the following month and remained at the ready to intercept German surface rai...Update 0.8.5.1 - Ranked Sprint Fix MoreJul 1, 2019 - Community Announcementshttps://steamcdn-a.akamaihd.net/steamcommunity/public/images/clans/31013613/46eb2ce2743d43d0a257b1af058a75dbc99e4d18.jpg Please note that the servers will be temporarily unavailable due to the release of an update.

In the desolation-themed port you’ll find modified destroyers that have been created specifically for the new unusual four-team battle format. The objective in this game mode is very simple—a team of three players needs to destroy three opposing teams. You can fight either in a Division or solo. The Additional Content filter, which can be found in the lower-right corner of the Port, has been updated. If for any reason the Rogue Wave event and the whole post-apocalypse theme is not your cup of radioactive tea, you can disable the display of camouflages and unique Commanders in the ship carousel's filter. To do this, you need to uncheck the Rogue Wave item in the Special Ships section. {STEAM_CLAN_IMAGE}/31013613/02bf452335f19e0e07338530e0f1ce94c4784464.gif Rewards and Armory The rules of the Rogue Wave event are similar to those of previous in-game events: you can earn Fuel Tokens, various in-game items, and a new expendable camouflage for completing special combat missions and Directives in the new game mode.

Georgia. This American battleship represents how far the U.S. Navy was willing to go to remain competitive against the ever-larger and more deadly Japanese warships in the prelude to the Second World War. Now you can experience the unmistakable power of a Yamato-sized 457 mm main battery, situated on a hull that can match Iowa’s lofty speeds. https://youtu.be/hP-vVAuwitg History In 1937, the upper echelons of the United States Navy began receiving unsettling reports of Japan’s plans to construct the Yamato-class super-battleship. American, British, and French intelligence gathered that the new Japanese capital ships were set to displace more than the limit of 35,000 tons, and wield a caliber larger than the 356 mm imposed by the 1936 Second London Naval Treaty, of which Japan was not a signatory. In response, the three future Allied nations invoked the so-called Escalator Clause of the treaty: a contingency measure for just such an occasion which pushed the self-imposed limits up to 45,000 tons and 406 mm, respectively. https://steamcdn-a.akamaihd.net/steamcommunity/public/images/clans/31013613/bbec2c223f5ce7a761c5077c3b1bac798ba3e856.jpg However, after discovering the Japanese plans, but before officially invoking the Escalator Clause, the top American ship designers had already been put to the task of creating what would eventually become the very successful Iowa-class fast battleships. First and foremost, the Navy wanted a battleship capable of a top speed that surpassed 30 knots—a clear deviation from the U.S. Navy’s standard policy up until that point that favored armor and firepower over speed. Setting 45,000 tons as the weight cap, some of the proposed designs called for the use of an 18-inch (457 mm) main battery loadout, and an armor scheme capable of defending against shells of the same caliber. Naturally, with the aforementioned weight limits, the additional machinery required to achieve such speeds, and the proposed massive guns, some corners would have to be cut. Preliminary studies concluded that such a ship should carry only six of these guns to retain a healthy weight distribution. After the Escalator Clause was officially put into effect, the final design that was accepted for the modern American fast battleship was the Iowa class with nine 406 mm guns that we know today. When the war started, the limits of the treaty were promptly thrown aside, but plans to develop the 457 mm naval guns were eventually scrapped anyway in the wake of the tactical revolution that aircraft carriers brought to naval warfare. https://steamcdn-a.akamaihd.net/steamcommunity/public/images/clans/31013613/742b09f4c1c7449fc6df8efd88b55f971140ea5a.jpg Modeling the Ship U.S.S.
