Early Access to European destroyers, Return of Convoy, Repeated Battle entry with the same ship, and other upcoming features - Closed Test 12.4

Let's check out some of the main new features of the coming update.


Early Access to European destroyers

In Update 12.4, early access to European destroyers will begin. In honor of the event, thematic permanent camouflages for Tier VIII-X ships and a commemorative flag have been added to the game, and the port of Fjords has been decorated for the occasion.

Convoy returns once again!  

Convoy will return once again in Update 12.4. Battles will be held in a 12 vs. 12 format utilizing Tier VIII to X ships.

We've updated the battle type since the last iteration:

  • Added a new map to the mix - Haven.
  • Updated bot behavior: transport ships now change their speed to dodge torpedoes instead of changing their course. 
  • The interface was improved.

Detailed information about the battle type will be shared at a later date.

Repeated Battle Entry With the Same Ship  

Update 12.4 introduces a new feature that will allow players to enter a new battle with a ship that was just destroyed without having to wait for the current battle to conclude. This way, you'll be able to fight more battles playing your favorite ship during a game session and this option should help you speed up your game progress on your favorite ships.

You will be able to enter a new battle after your ship is destroyed directly through the exit screen of the current one. This change won't affect Clan Battles.

Updated the notifications window. Now it will include three permanent blocks - battle results, inventory, etc., as well as one temporary one which will include notifications related to game updates.

Notifications for successful actions that the player has taken part in, such as purchasing something or completing a collection, will not pop up. However, they will still be displayed in the notification history.

Completely updated the interface and appearance of most notifications. Added grouping - now notifications related to one action are grouped into one message. For example, all rewards after opening a container, or the deduction of resources together with the items acquired when purchasing a bundle in the Armory, will now be displayed in one notification.

Please note that all information in the development blog is preliminary. Announced adjustments and features may change multiple times during testing. The final information will be published on our game's website.
