Ranked Sprints

Stocking up on Coal for a long-desired ship? Don't miss the two Ranked Sprints in Update 0.8.8—you can stash away up to 10,000 Coal for each of them!

Sprint formats

  • During Season 8, battles will involve only Tier VII ships and will be held in a 6 vs. 6 format.
  • During Season 9, battles will involve only Tier VIII ships and will be held in a 7 vs. 7 format.
During both Sprints, battles will be fought in Domination mode, and there are a total of 10 Ranks. Don't forget that Divisions are allowed in Sprints so you can combine your efforts with those of your friend!

Visual and Audio Enhancements

Several maps and Ports have been updated to utilize the reworked lighting model. In Update 0.8.8, we've enhanced the following maps: Ocean, Big Race, North, Fault Line, Polar, and Islands, as well as the Philippines Port. The skies on these maps have been completely changed, too, in order to accommodate enhanced HDR technology that will add more contrast to the game’s graphics and create a more realistic look. Clouds drifting across the sky on the reworked maps will now cast shadows on the water’s surface, ships, and terrain. In forthcoming updates, we’re going to continue tweaking the game content to accommodate the new lighting system.
Apart from graphics, we've added enhancements to the audio system as well. In the new update, we’ve reworked the principles for sound reproduction:
  • Introduction of a system of priorities and restrictions affecting the reproduction of sounds.
  • Gunfire sounds have been "standardised," depending on the number of guns firing and their calibre.
  • Engines will now produce different sound patterns depending on their power.
  • New sounds and music have been added.
  • Ambient sounds have been enhanced.
  • Greater stability and the fixing of certain issues that affected the audio system’s performance.
This change will apply to all sounds in the game, which might make them seem unusual at first. We’ll continue to enhance the sounds and sound reproduction system in the game.

North 0.8.8

The following maps: Ocean, Big Race, North, Fault Line, Polar, and Islands, as well as the Philippines Port, have been updated to utilize the reworked lighting model. The skies on these maps have changed, too, in order to accommodate enhanced HDR technology that will add more contrast to the game’s graphics and create a more realistic look. Apart from that, clouds drifting across the sky on the reworked maps will now cast shadows on the water’s surface, ships, and terrain. In forthcoming updates, we’re going to enhance other maps and Ports, too.

Clan Brawl

Update 0.8.8 will feature two Clan Brawls with rewards including credits, Coal, Commander XP—and Steel! The Brawls will be held in an unconventional format with a reduced combat area on maps you already know well. Limited space on those maps will make battles more dynamic despite the smaller number of participants.

WHAT IS THE CLAN BRAWL?

The Clan Brawl is a big clash in which Clans intensively battle each another for one day only.
It is possible to fight against Clans from other regions in the Clan Brawl.
During Update 0.8.8, players can take part in  "Clan Brawl". Besides the usual rewards for battles, participants can claim additional bonuses for victories - credits, Elite Commander XP, Coal, and Steel. Complete all the chains of combat missions to earn useful resources!
