World of Warships pits players against ghost ships

    
11

How do you celebrate Halloween in World of Warships? By battling it out with actual ghost ships, of course!

From now through November 2nd, players in the random PvP queue will have a chance of encountering either the Phantom Fortress or the Salem Witch in a battle. Interestingly, these ships will be manned by Wargaming’s staff and representatives.

If the players facing off against the ghost ships win, they will be rewarded with a box of signal flags. Because who doesn’t love signal flags?

melissaheather Seeing your enemy catch on fire from a meteor shower of hot lead you just threw at it is pretty amazing.

Nether really they’re bonuses like -5% repair cost after that battle. Or -××% chance of catching on fire..etc.
They dont have combat stats like extra pen and you cant use them like a consumable. You equip them before battle and they last 1 round.

Sure. Ghost ships are all fun, people going ooh and aaah, until you get caught and have to serve as a sea creature for one hundred years, then there is screaming and running.

tobascodagama are those the same as the consumables in WoT or are they closer to gold rounds?

I’ve been having a lot of fun with this game, play it practically daily to get my bonuses.    I finally have an aircraft carrier, and they can be incredibly effective against large ships that can’t turn fast.    you can unleash a spray of 6 torpedoes and almost always hit your target with at least one of them, sometimes 3 or more and wipe out that ship in one “Devastating Strike” as the deed is called.   Still only Wyoming class cruiser/battleship, but its guns are deafening and the damage it can do is hellacious.   Seeing your enemy catch on fire from a meteor shower of hot lead you just threw at it is pretty amazing.   And the sinking animations are wonderful, so much variety, so well-animated.   I enjoy this game, but it’s a slower match pace than World of Tanks.   The fleet that stays together wins.

The reward appears to be signal FLAGS, not signal flares. The flags are basically consumable boosts: http://worldofwarships.com/en/content/guides/signal-flags/
