Hello everyone, for those of you who weren’t aware the World of Warships team have just unveiled their latest goodies for WoWS at this years Gamescom and I am writing to give you an overview of what to expect. Firstly, we have been given this teaser:

World of Warships Development Blog
Back in 2018 many of you have participated in the operation called ‘Terror of the Deep’. This event allowed everyone to try a new class in our game — submarines. By the end of the event, it became clear that our players are highly interested in submarines and we should be engaged in full development.
And now, we are happy to announce that the first stages of closed testing will begin shortly, where the new gameplay of submarines will be tested. The American and German submarines will be the pioneers of the new class.
After the SuperTest submarines will be available for players to try on a special server, before being added to the main game client. Once introduced, the new class will initially be available in a special separate battle type only and this final configuration stage will last for several months. This will allow us to make additional changes to the new class under the conditions of the live server.
We will be sharing more details with you shortly. Follow our official game channels for more news!

Good day to you all. Following on the heel of the news from yesterday, we have now been given a sneak peak of the top tier Italian Cruisers. For those wondering, they are all ahistorical designs but they are set to be interesting, with the top ship having 15 main guns, most likely 203mms, so here are the ships for all of you curious people.
Rank VIII – RM Verona
Hello everyone, just a quick one from me that I have to post as it is naval themed. Today we have been given a sneak peak at the first 7 Italian Cruisers as well as a Tier X destroyer. In this article we will look at each ship and will give a brief outline of them.
Rank I – RM Eritrea
EU Weekday Server Issue
Last Thursday (11/07/19), we had some server issues which prevented a lot of you from playing World of Warships.
To make up for the disruption and inconvenience caused, we are offering compensation.
Those of you who played at least one battle between 26/06/19 00:00 UTC – 11/07/19 13:25 UTC will be able to claim the following:
- 1x Wargaming Container
- Guaranteed 1 day of Warships Premium, plus a random signal flag assortment.
- 1x Standard “Rogue Wave” Container.
We sincerely apologize for the distruption and appreciate your patience.
Will be posting more of these in the future:
French destroyer Siroco, tier V:
Detectability range by air is lowered from 3.36 km to 2.7 km;
Main Battery Reload Booster and Engine Boost consumables are changed place. Now, Siroco’s consumables are arranged in the same order as the researchable French destroyers.
French destroyer Vauquelin, tier VII:
French destroyer Kleber, tier X:
Detectability ranges by sea, and after firing main caliber guns in smoke, for French destroyers is corrected considering the basic detection range from sea.
French cruiser Colbert, tier X:
Soviet cruiser Smolensk, tier X:
When using skills and upgrades for lowering detection range, the AA gun range of Colbert and Smolensk was larger than the detection range by air. This allowed these cruisers to turn the AA off and activate it when enemy planes are already inside the AA zone. The changes will remedy this situation.
Statistics prone to change.
