  1. 75 years ago Gensui (Marshal-admiral) Isoroku Yamamoto died in a plane crash during an engagement with the enemy while directing a strategic operation on the front line. The Imperial Japanese Navy has lost a legend. This outstanding Japanese naval officer, who is mainly known for conceiving of the surprise attack on the US naval base at Pearl Harbor on Dec 7th, 1941, received his first battle experience while still an ensign. Isoroku Yamamoto took part in the Russo-Japanese war and never stopped moving through the ranks, becoming a marshal admiral and a Commander-in-Chief during the early years of the Pacific War. Not everyone knows, that Yamamoto's original family name is Takano; his father was a former samurai warrior. Although his surname would change, he would carry on his birth family’s warrior tradition by pursuing a career in the navy. As a lieutenant commander, Yamamoto studied English at Harvard University and spent several years as an assistant naval attaché in Washington. In 1924, at age 40, he changed his specialty from gunnery to aviation, recognizing the upcoming trend in naval warfare and becoming one of Japan's foremost aviation officers. Isoroku Yamamoto was an inspiring example of an exceptionally good tactician and a great leader. Though out his career he had a strong influence on the development of Japanese naval aviation. He was against invading China and against the conflict between Japan and the United States, resulting in a constant confrontation with the Japanese army command. At the same time, he remained one of the most popular officers and took the lead of the Combined Fleet in 1939.

    Graf von Spee

    In World of Warships: Legends we are focusing a bit more on the commander role and representation. Our commanders are meant to make the gameplay more varied and personalized, provide you with an avatar with which you can identify. Let’s see what historical figures will accompany you along your naval journey. We are proud to introduce you Vice Admiral von Spee - one of the most famous German commanders during WWI. Von Spee joined the Imperial Navy at the age of 17 and served in a variety of roles and locations. He took part in expeditions to Western Africa and military operations in China. In 1912 he was appointed to lead the cruiser Squadron in East Asia, where his forces consisted of the armored cruisers Scharnhorst and Gneisenau as well as of the light cruisers Emden and Nürnberg. Maximilian von Spee became famous for winning the battle of Coronel, Chilie. Several ships were named after this notorious Vice Admiral, including a pocket battleship and a heavy cruiser.

    Account Migration from PC

    Hello! There will be no migration or cross-platform experience between PC and consoles. We want to state that WoWs: Legends is a separate project. As for the welcome packages - it is still too early to talk about that. We shall share more information closer to the release. Believe me, if we have spoilers for you - we will deliver them immediately 😉

    The Beta weekend cometh!

    It is unpredictable whether your chances are high or low. I'd say it is 50/50. It builds up the excitement 😉 Unfortunately, we cannot provide everyone with a code, however, we hope that everyone will join the fun when the game launches officially. Meanwhile, we can build up a great community here!

    First Beta Weekend in Numbers

    You are right, that would be interesting to know. We've added the battle counts per ship class.
  9. Ahoy, Legends! It has been a pleasure to see you sailing the high seas together with us during the last weekend. Together we've covered 3 947 715,87 km, which is almost 213 159 605 Nautical miles! Oh, I say! That is five times to the moon and back! In total, there had been 20 409 351 shells (both main and secondary guns) fired in the course of fierce testing. No wonder that we have some great numbers to share. More than 200 000 battles took place during the Beta Weekend. About 141 000 battles with CCs, 35 711 on BBs and almost 26 000 on DDs. Overall damage inflicted by the ship class: Destroyers - 636 632 784 (including 162 565 394 damage from the main guns, 424 256 712 dealt by torpedoes) Battleships - 1 567 277 324 (including 1 364 072 711 damage from the main guns, 9 9511 276 - secondaries) Cruisers - 3 551 959 630 (including 2 544 007 173 damage from the main guns, 565 368 625 dealt by torpedoes, 78 733 747 - by secondaries) Ramming speed was successfully reached multiple times! We are sure that 4802 ships sunk because of the rams. All this effort was enough to rank up commanders 38 976 times! 🏅 We know you love achievements, and so do we! ◽ The High Caliber was achieved 13 721 times. To get one you had to damage at least 4 enemy ships. Damage caused must have exceeded 30% of the total HP of all the ships in the enemy team. ◽ You’ve Unleashed Kraken 2 203 times! This means that you are a formidable opponent, sir! Not everyone can destroy five or more enemies in a single battle keeping, considering the fact that for most of you it was your first time playing World of Warships: Legends! ◽ There were 2 203 Confederate medals received during this Beta Weekends. To attain it you had to damage at least 6 enemy ships. Damage caused to each ship must exceed 20% of her normal HP. ◽ Only 125 Solo Warriors made a legendary appearance. It is not an easy achievement to get! Here are the requirements: stand alone against at least 4 enemy ships and win the battle. We hope you had fun playing World of Warships: Legends! We appreciate your feedback and will use it for further improvements. See you in 2019, captain! Turn the tide!
