Planet Clash Event! 


Prepare for battle against the might of the Alldestroyer in this new April Fools' Day operation. Your team will fight through a swarm of the Alldestroyers' minions to take her on and defeat her before she can escape! It's a race against the clock, so prepare yourself for the battle ahead. You will take command of specially designed spaceships and their Commanders, with shields and special abilities to use against the Alldestroyer. 

The event brings new space-themed ships, skins, Commander guises, and rewards aplenty. Plus, the Space Port returns for consoles.

Japanese Light Cruisers in Early Access


We're pleased to introduce a new Tech Tree line for Japan, featuring light cruisers of Tier IV and upward. This update, the first four will be available in Early Access: Agano, Gokase, Omono, and Shimanto. These cruisers carry heavy torpedo armament, with turning torpedoes starting from Omono that allow them to launch at aggressive angles. An abundance of main battery guns and solid concealment provide plenty of utility to these torpedo-slinging warships. There's also a slick series of "Fleet Review" skins for the ships available. 

For the anniversary of Yamato's final mission, a short series of missions will feature this legendary battleship from April 4 through 11. Completing them will earn you some rewards, including a few Japanese Cruisers crates. 

Tier VIII cruiser Takahashi will become available for research next update.

The Night Warrior Calendar


To complement the new set of light cruisers, a new historical Commander is available for the Japanese Tech Tree: Matsuji Ijūin. His abilities are geared around improving the torpedo performance of your Japanese cruisers, featuring a new skill and unique base trait:

Base Trait: Speed Is My Weapon  

  • Increase torpedo speed by up to 1.5 kts 
  • Increase ship maximum movement speed by up to 2% 

Legendary Skill: Killing Distance  

  • Reduce torpedo detectability by 50/100/150/200 meters 
  • Increase torpedo range by 3%/4%/5%/6% 
  • Increase cruiser torpedo damage by up to 10%/13%/17%/20%, depending on the distance traveled, reaching max damage at max range. 

On your way to unlocking this Commander, you can earn plenty of rewards and some Japanese Cruisers crates. The Calendar replaces daily missions for the first 3 weeks, but fear not: Doubloon Week is still on schedule for the 2nd week of the Calendar. 

5 Years Strong & Loyalty Rewards Return! 


World of Warships: Legends is 5 Years Strong this update, and many of you have been sailing the high seas the whole time! We've prepared a series of gifts for you in honor of the Anniversary, including an exclusive Tier V Premium ship for 5-year players—Commonwealth cruiser Mysore. When you log in during the new update, you can pick up a free bundle in the Store to get your rewards and a small mission for even more rewards. 

There are various tiers of rewards depending on how long you've played Legends, determined by when you first logged in to the game. Even if you've joined the game today, there's something for you! Be sure to log in during the April update to claim your loyalty rewards. 

There will be a supporting article with more detailed information on the blog.

Ranked Seasons 52 & 53 

Ranked returns during the final 2 weeks of the update, starting Tuesday April 16. Season 52 features Tier V ships, and Season 53 features Tier VI ships. Divisions of three players can fight together in 5v5 battles, with a limit of one destroyer per team and no aircraft carriers. Plentiful rewards are in store for competitors, including up to 2,400 Steel for completing both seasons.  

Steel Ship: Daisen 


The Forge gains a new ship this update: Japanese Tier VIII battleship Daisen. This large battlecruiser enjoys eight accurate and high-velocity guns, great torpedoes, and uniquely improved consumables. Her Engine Boost provides a short-duration burst of speed that can send her up above 40 knots, and her Enhanced Secondary Targeting is the best in the game. 

She appears in the Forge for 25,000 Steel.

Mobile: Global Release! 

This update marks the global release of World of Warships: Legends on mobile for iOS and Android devices on March 27. You can now access the game anywhere on the go, sailing the seas, sinking your opponents, completing Bureau tasks, daily missions, and more from your phone or tablet. 

Plus, more improvements are arriving this update: 

  • Full Commander support (Legendary skills, guises, and voiceovers) 
  • Calendar support 
  • Store coupons 
  • Improvements to touch controls (improved recognition of when the finger leaves the screen outside the button area) 
  • Performance improvements for Lower end devices

Balance Changes

This update brings another edition of Ministry of Balance, bringing improvements to many ships: 

  • Buffs to selected Italian destroyers and French large cruisers 
  • Buffs to Resistance and Leone 
  • Buffs to Hawke and Saint Louis 
  • Nerfs to Alaska and Stalingrad 
  • Small economy changes to some Tier VIII ships 

Plus, there are changes coming to the spawn points on many maps to help even out the experience of the beginning of battle. 

For more details on these changes, be sure to read the Ministry of Balance article published alongside the patch notes here.

Improvements to Fleets 

April showers bring two new Fleet features! Firstly, your Fleet callsigns will now be visible next to your name in leaderboards, in-game battle log, in-game player lists, and the post-battle results screen. This is a big upgrade for recognizing fellow Fleet members or notable Fleets in the community while in-game, we hope you like it! 

That's not all; we're making it easier to find Fleets and potential recruits in-game by adding a "Looking for Fleet" feature, similar to "Looking for Division." Players who aren't a part of a Fleet can mark themselves as looking for a Fleet, and Fleet leaders can view a list of these players to invite them directly to their Fleet. 

We know many of you are eagerly awaiting the return of Fleet Battles as well, but we ask that you remain patient as we continue working on improvements to the game mode for its next iteration.

Mobile Bug Fixes 

  • Fixed duplication of the "Back" button when demounting upgrades in some situations. 
  • Fixed Commander names being cut off on the Commanders screen.
