Special Features of the Test

During the Public Test of 0.9.8, everyone will be able to test a new temporary battle type—Asymmetric Battles.

  • Select the Asymmetric Battle type.
  • Two teams will face off against each other in these battles, with differing numbers of ships and different ship tiers: 4–6 Tier VII–VIII ships, against 8–12 Tier V–VI ships.
  • To take part in Asymmetric Battles playing Tier VII–VIII ships you’ll need Battle Tokens.

For the purpose of testing, the conditions of the “Five Epochs of the Navy” Campaign have been made easier. We’ve changed the reward for completing the 20th shipbuilding phase at the Dockyard. Anchorage won’t be available on the Public Test server.
