In Update 0.6.1, you will have a handy tool to view all the assets you have accumulated, acquired from Containers, and earned in battles.
You can also sell some of them. Inventory will be available from Service Record Level 12. It can be accessed from the account menu, in the same place where the clans are: the upper left corner, where your nickname is.
This is the first step in the development and introduction of special modernisations with varying degrees of uniqueness. They will be available for as rewards for various achievements and activities, and available from supercontainers. They will be installed either on the classes or specific ships of a particular nation, and some are available strictly for a particular ship.

The soundtrack now not only pleasantly complements the gameplay, but also reacts to changes in the combat situation. The old music score for the timer has been cancelled; now, peaceful ambient music immediately begins playing instead. When there are enemies within a radius of 17 km, and when the player is detected by the enemy, the music switches to the new track for the “detection” state. As the distance to the enemy decreases, it grows more and more intense. When engaged, the music switches to the “battle” state, and when there are no enemies in sight, the music returns to the peaceful ambient music track
Ranked Battles are back! Shortly after the Version 0.6.1 update, Ranked Battle Season 6 will begin. Get your favourite 7’s all ready and kitted up, but don’t forget about new arrivals, too: since last season, even more have become available!
