    I honestly didn't play low tier BBs because I find them horribly slow and inefficient and cruisers and destroyers will shit all over you whilst running circles around. You can't snipe because your range is like 15km or so and your brawling is ineffective due to no torpedoes. I just went with free XP through tiers 1-4.

    Ahah! I have discovered the secret to direct comparisons of battleship accuracy at normalized ranges. Sort of!

    When you upgrade your FCS module your range and dispersion both increase, the latter because it's showing the same dispersion cone projected at the greater distance. After checking tiers 6-9 (except Nagato, which has no FCS upgrade), I've found that Japanese dispersion always goes up by 7 meters per KM of range, American and German 10 meters, and UK 10 or 10.67 meters (I believe this is due to rounding concerns and I'm going with 10 meters). This means we can normalize Yamato, the most accurate battleship in the game, down to some other level and do a more direct comparison.

    Yamato at, say, Bismarck's 21.1 km range would have 236 meters of dispersion (compared to Bismarck's 274 meters).

    The "sort of" is because of sigma. We now know, thanks to a Wargaming developer who posts on Reddit, that sigma is not vertical dispersion but rather how densely clustered around the central point shots are likely to be, with higher sigma equaling tighter clustering (so basically what it means in normal distribution terms, except reversed). Here is a comparison someone on Reddit made of Alabama (in blue with 1.9 sigma) and North Carolina (in red with 2.0 sigma).



    So not a huge difference, probably less impactful that people think it is, particularly since larger sigma can be offset at least partially by smaller horizontal dispersion.

    Second anniversary event, bunch of neat stuff up for grabs. I'll post all the region links at the end as they all go into different detail, though a WGRU staffer has said the event should be unified across all regions.

    Some of the highlights:

      • +50% to Commander EXP earned
      • +50% to Free EXP earned
      • -3% to the ship's detectability
      • +4% to maximum dispersion of shells fired by the enemy attacking your ship

    • +200% XP for first win
    • Discounts
      • 30% OFF Tier VIII Regular Ships
      • 15% OFF Tier IX - X Regular Ships
      • 15% OFF Tier VIII Premium Ships (within the Tech Tree)
      • 60% OFF Premium Consumable
      • 50% OFF Port Slot
      • Free EXP Conversion Rate: 35 XP/1 gold

    • All players who have played 1,000 or more battles in World of Warships will recieve 10 World of Warships Anniversary consumable camouflage.
    • You will also receive 10 of each special signal flag set (Dragon, Wyvern, Red Dragon, Ouroboros, Hydra) for every 1,000 battles recorded in World of Warships Account (up to 15,000).
    • Supercontainer for playing a match in a tier 10 ship (once per ship).
    • Win a match, get a day of premium and 25 more anniversary camos.
    • Destroy 20 ships, get 1,000,000 credits.


    Permanent camos - Looks pretty good, though unfortunately it's on some fairly meh ships:

    Based on information from China server, the anniversary achievements that get you collection items that get you the permanent camos. These are all "in one match", so no accruing kills/xp/damage/etc. You can do each achievement multiple times but you only get the collection item from it once per day.

      Spoiler:

    The wording on the Bismarck one is ambiguous, for reasons of practicality I'm interpreting it as 1.2x HP total distributed in any way over at least four ships. 1.2x your HP to each of four ships you hit would be insane.
