Rewards for Viewers

King of the Sea collection

During the 13th edition of the tournament, we announced that the King of the Sea collection would be discontinued. However, since many players had still been unable to complete it, we decided to bring it back for King of the Sea XIV.

The collection comprises 16 elements split into four sections that pay homage to the tournament’s history.

  • Completing each of the four sections will reward you with 1 day of Warships Premium Account.
  • Completing the entire collection will bring you a Premium Ship VII container, which is guaranteed to drop a random Tier VII Premium ship.

During King of the Sea XIV, you can obtain up to eight collection item containers for free:

  • One will be delivered to your account when logging in to the game for the first time close to the beginning of the tournament. Simple as that.
  • Four will be split between the weekly Ship’s Log articles on our website during Update 0.11.9. Click the buttons hidden between the lines and complete a small mission to get the containers.
  • Three more containers will be available through Twitch Drops when viewing the first three weekends of the tournament, respectively—simply watch one of the participating livestreams for at least 90 minutes and you’ll get a mission credited to your game account to unlock each container.

On top of that, you can find three more King of the Sea collection containers in the Armory’s Naval Community tab for 2,000 Community Tokens each. With the release of Update 0.11.9, we’re resetting the limit counter, so if you had previously purchased the three containers, you’ll be able to purchase three more.

King of the Sea XIV permanent camouflage for Admiral Hipper

A new themed permanent camouflage for the tier VIII German cruiser Admiral Hipper is available to claim via a special mission marathon. To unlock it, you must watch the International finals of the tournament with Twitch Drops enabled.
