German Cruisers and Soviet Destroyers are coming to World of Warships on October 19th, and Wargaming is giving players a chance to give a try to two of the new ships, provided that they don’t suck.
The trial will involve the German Tier V cruiser Königsberg, and the Soviet Tier V destroyer Gnevny. It started today in the Europan server and will start tomorrow in the North American one.
As I mentioned, in order to try the two ships, you need to prove that you don’t suck. If you want to try the Königsberg, you need to sink four ships in a single battle in a Japanese ship of tier IV or higher. To try the Gnevny you need to achieve the same result in an American ship of thier IV or higher.
If you manage, you’ll get the ship, a port slot and a captain with three skill points. Unfortunately, once the event is over (on the 19th), the ships will be removed from your account, but all the experience you accumulated with them will be refunded on the first ship of the respective tech tree, which means that you’ll be able to get a headstart on climbing through the tiers.
Sinking four ships in a battle may seem daunting, but it’s actually very doable. You don’t need to do the whole amount of damage on your own. All you have to do is to deliver the finishing blow.
I predict a lot of killstealing in the next few days, and I can’t say that I won’t do my best to snipe badly damaged ships for the event.
