World of Warships: Legends is celebrating the Holidays with a few big events. Players can participate in the Last Battleship campaign to earn the Jean Bart, build and command the mighty Yamato, and experience better battles through the second wave of player-driven changes. With lots of holiday presents, events, giveaways, and sales, there's plenty to do in World of Warships: Legends this Holiday season.
The Last Battleship campaign has started and will continue until the next update. Players can earn the last battleship ever completed - Jean Bart. The historical Jean Bart was completed and entered service in 1955, almost 10 years after HMS Vanguard. Though originally a 1936 design, Jean Bart was redesigned with experience from World War II and her sister ship Richelieu.
In-game, she is all about speed. Equipped with an Engine Boost and a Main Battery Reload Booster, Jean Bart can flank and unleash devastation on a whim. Players who complete the Last Battleship campaign with Admiralty Backing will receive the Jean Bart as the final reward. On the way through the Last Battleship campaign, players will earn rewards, equipment, and special Santa Containers which have a chance to drop a premium ship.
At last, the legendary Yamato will appear in World of Warships: Legends. Any player that completes the Giant of the Sea missions can try out the Yamato starting on December 30. Yamato is the first Legendary Tier ship in the game and is the most powerful ship in the game. She is nearly unstoppable thanks to her immense 460 mm guns and best-in-class survivability.
In history, the Yamato was the largest and most powerful battleship ever built, and she retains that spot in World of Warships: Legends. She will only be available during the Yamato event and will disappear afterward for further tuning.
There is also a special currency that can be obtained from both events - Sakura Coins. If players acquire enough of these Sakura Coins by completing missions, opening Super Santa Containers, and taking the Yamato into battle they will have the opportunity to buy two premium destroyers, the Tier VI Asashio and the Tier III G-101.
In order to get Asashio, players will need to open a few Super Santa Containers, which are available through the campaign and the store. There are also massive New Year sales.
In addition, there have been several balance changes to improve high-tier battles. Most Tier VII cruisers received improved survivability, and several Tier VI and VII ships were changed based on their performance in battle. High-tier map spawn locations were also adjusted to allow for more tactical flexibility in battle, thanks to player feedback.
