World of Warships – Clan Battles Season: Crash Zone Alpha

On October 23, the seventh Clan Battles Season starts, offering a great opportunity to obtain Steel and other valuable rewards.

This publication will tell you about the main rules and rewards of the Season. We’ll also tell you what Clans are, why it’s a great idea to join one, and what in-game bonuses they can provide.

CLANS

What’s a Clan, and why should I join one?

A Clan is a community of players who want to play together. Having joined a Clan, you’ll be entitled to regular economic bonuses, and you’ll always have a team of players willing to fight in a Division, complete Operations, or take part in Clan Battles with you.

You can either apply to join an existing Clan, or establish your own in the special Clan section in the Port.

Under the Recommendations tab, you can indicate your personal playing preferences and preferred language for communication. The game will present you with a list of Clans that meet the specified criteria.

Please note: to join a Clan and participate in Clan Battles, players need to unlock them in their Service Records. Doing so requires 200 battles to have been played in any accessible battle mode.

Naval Base

The Naval Base acts as the virtual territory of a Clan in the Port. Here, the Clan’s leaders can build various structures that provide bonuses for all Clan members. The details of the bonus itself depend on the type and level of the structure. To build structures, Clans require a special resource—Oil. This can be earned by participating in various Clan activities or obtained from most types of in-game containers.

Naval Base structures can provide the following bonuses:

  • Discount on the cost of researchable ships—up to 15%
  • Reduction of the cost of all ships’ post-battle service—up to 15%
  • Increase in the amount of XP gained per battle—up to 5%
  • Increase in the amount of Commander XP gained per battle—up to 10%
  • Increase in the amount of Free XP gained per battle—up to 25%
  • Increase in the amount of Coal gained—up to 10%
  • Increase in the amount of Steel gained—up to 10%

Example: the Coal Port structure at Level 3 increases the amount of Coal the Clan obtains. Thus, opening a daily container with 400 Coal would actually mean 440 Coal is dropped with this structure built.

Clan Treasury

The Clan Treasury is a place where the Clan’s in-game resources are stored. Members can replenish these resources by participating in various Clan activities.

Clan leaders can distribute accumulated resources among participants at their own discretion. For active participation in the Clan’s activities, you can get a bonus in the form of Steel or Coal.

CLAN BATTLES

Clan Battles are a specific battle type with their own rules, where Clans fight one another. Unlike Random Battles, it’s not only the result of an individual battle that’s important here, but also general progress. By winning battles, your Clan progresses and can earn more valuable rewards and Steel, the latter of which can be exchanged for unique ships in the Armory— X Bourgogne X Stalingrad X Somers IX Neustrashimy VII Flint, and  IX Black. Steel is also a useful substitute when you don’t have enough Coal to obtain any in-game items.

Save Steel with a 25% discount on ships in the Armory.

Special features of Clan Battles

You can take part in Clan Battles only as part of a Clan Division, and on ships of a designated tier. For example, the seventh Season will be played on Tier X ships.

But what should you do if you want to participate in Clan Battles, but don’t have a Tier X ship or perhaps want to try out a new ship type? Well, you can rent a Tier X Clan ship! All you need to do is fight one battle playing a Tier VIII–X ship in a Co-op, Random, or Clan Battle.

Clan Battles are available during prime times only: every Wednesday, Thursday, Saturday, and Sunday at the scheduled times.

Remember that you’re part of a team—in Clan Battles, it’s the result of the battle that’s important, not your individual achievements. All participants receive the same amount of XP and credits, with the amount of each depending on the outcome of the battle.

  • Victory: 2 500base XP and 300 000 credits (without modifiers applied)
  • Defeat or draw: 250 base XP and 150 000 credits (without modifiers applied)

All Clan Battles are divided into 5 leagues: Squall, Gale, Storm, Typhoon, and Hurricane. The more often your Clan is victorious in battles, the higher your Rating and more illustrious the league you’re placed in is. By climbing up the Rating table, you’ll receive greater rewards, but you’ll also face way more dangerous rivals.

Players can earn Steel by winning battles in the various leagues. The maximum available amount of Steel depends on each specific season, and usually amounts to 11,000 Steel. But even if you don’t make it to the Hurricane League, you’ll still obtain valuable rewards on your journey. For instance, victories in the Squall League during the seventh Season can reward you with up to 2 000 Steel.

CLAN BRAWLS

Do you need to replenish your stocks of Steel and Coal quickly, but don’t want to participate in a long Clan Battles season? Then we have a new format of Clan Battles just for you—it’s called Clan Brawl.

Differences in comparison to Clan Battles seasons

  • Battles are held during the course of a single day
  • The final Rating position of the Clan depends only on their number of victories
  • There are no leagues

Clan Brawls offer a great opportunity to earn credits, Coal, Steel, and other valuable resources within just one evening of playing in a team with your Clanmates.

RULES OF THE SEVENTH SEASON
