Anniversary Update: Summer Waves


A summer birthday, what could be better? First off, let's start with a small gift: use the bonus code IN9BDAM5BK to obtain 12x Anniversary camouflages, along with 2x Common Crates. There's a lot to unpack, but we know that some of you prefer to read a short summary. If so, here's the TLDR:

Let's dive right in! 

Training Mode


It's here! Now, you can create custom training rooms with adjustable settings to perfect your skills. Play with friends, AI-controlled ships, or even random players—the choice is yours. Expect a detailed breakdown of the mode in the featured article tomorrow, and get ready to start training on Monday, July 24!

Please note: This feature is not yet available for the mobile version of Legends. 

Anniversary Celebrations


Wow, time sure does fly! Legends is turning 4 years young this summer, which means that celebrations are in order! We’ve got a solid set of content waiting for you, starting with…

Seasoned Veteran Bundle


What’s a birthday without presents, right? This bundle is centered around an exclusive version of cruiser Oleg, an old classic and the mascot of our community. She will be available through your platform store starting Monday, July 31.

Birthday Bureau

This free new project will take a look at our biggest milestones over the past Legendary year, and, of course, reward you with themed crates and even more prizes. Make sure to start it: it will get deprecated with the arrival of the next update on August 28. 

Quadrans: Your Key to Rewards

This update will introduce a new event currency called Quadrans, which can be earned in a few different ways. We'll break down how to obtain Quadrans in a standalone blog post. We’ll also go over some of the prizes you can expect, including American Tier VII cruiser Congress and famed British Tier V battleship Repulse; the Super V crate with a guaranteed Premium ship, exclusive Japanese destroyer Shinonome among the possible drops, and the debut of her Tier VI counterpart, which might grant you Yukikaze; and more.  

Treasure Hunt Web Event

The traditional web event is back, this time you can complete it without spending a single doubloon! Starting July 26, unlock cells with keys and receive a ton of free prizes, including up to 10,000 Quadrans! Detailed info will arrive in a standalone article in the coming days.

Ultimate Crates: Look Inside!

To mark this special occasion, we’ve also prepared a new type of crate. Each Ultimate Сrate will drop a container from a past event, such as Halloween, Black Friday, the latest Lunar New Year and Golden Week, or even Super Santa '23. On top of that, acquiring these crates will also net you some Quadrans for each. So, keep an eye out for them in the Store!

Please note: You will only receive Oil for obtaining the Ultimate Crate, not for the container inside the Ultimate Crate.

Windroses & First Win Bonus 

As always, you’ll be able to earn even more rewards during this festive period. Windroses will be available from August 7 through August 14, granting bonuses for the first win of the update when playing Tier IV–Legendary Tier ships (with Legendary-Tier ships awarding 1 Ultimate Crate each). Moreover, the First Win Bonus will be improved to x5 from August 14 through August 21. A detailed breakdown of these rewards will be published on Monday, July 24.

New Ships of the Update

American Tier VII Premium Cruiser Congress


This powerful monster boasts big guns with great accuracy, Radar, and a huge HP pool. You can get her for Quadrans in the Store. 

British Tier V Premium Battleship Repulse


This famous ship from the Royal Navy has made it to Legends! She’s bringing high speed—further improved by the Engine Boost consumable—and great accuracy on her main battery. Repulse is available for Quadrans in the Store.

Refreshed Main Menu


This update also features an epic redesign of the main menu. Be sure to take a look!

Balance Changes

A very important balance change is being implemented. Starting with this update, Ark Royal will deal about 25% less damage.

After the update is released on July 24th, you will be able to exchange the ship for her doubloons equivalent by filing a Support Ticket. You can do that only if you acquired Ark Royal before the release of the new update on July 24, 2023.

Ark Royal

This ship has been infamous for her ability to deal damage to everything at her tier. Now, it’s time to change things.

  • HE Dive Bombers
    • HE Bomb penetration reduced from 32.7 to 19.1 mm
    • HE Bomb damage reduced from 3,750 to 3,000
    • HE Bomb fire chance reduced from 25% to 20%
    • HE Bombs’ ability to disable modules reduced
  • Torpedo Bombers
    • Torpedo damage reduced from 5,300 to 3,800
    • Torpedoes’ ability to disable modules reduced


Lepanto became excessively powerful after the last update. In fact, her secondary battery damage output is currently twice as powerful as that of Vittorio Veneto. So now, her secondary battery damage output is being reduced by about 40%—still greater than that of her predecessor.

  • Secondary battery range reduced from 6.25 to 6 km
  • 152-mm secondary battery gun reload time increased from 5 to 8.5 seconds
  • 90-mm secondary battery gun reload time increased from 3.5 to 6 seconds


We've updated the tutorial for new players.

  • Make sure to start the Legendary Birthday 2021 Bureau project, since it will be deprecated at the start of the new update on July 24.  
  • The Premium Supplies weekly mission has been reworked: we've increased the rewards, adding more Steel, an extra Commander Crate, and a Commendation! Moreover, tasks for Tier VII and Tier VIII ships are now separate. Check out the new Missions tab for full details.
  • With the release of this update, any unspent Independium will be converted into credits: 1 Independium for 1,500 credits.

Enjoy the summer and turn the tide!
