Get free premium time in World of Warships’s big balance update

    
4
World of Warships’ recently launched update 0.5.5 is a game changer, both in content and in optimizations. By reducing the number of files players’ computers have to handle, Wargaming will improve load times by 10% to 50%. To compensate for this update taking extra time (up to an hour), the studio is offering three days of paid premium time to everyone who logs in by May 10th.

Content-wise this patch includes two new maps, combat-affecting weather, and a boatload of ship changes. The sights and sounds of WoWS also received updates. Acoustic improvements include new music tracks (some with vocals), better aircraft engine sounds, the ability to control gunfire volume, and much more. The visuals were spruced up with new rendering shells, more impressive sinking ships, and full-screen fire effects. You can get a walkthrough of these changes in the video below, or read up on everything in the official patch notes.

I did the update and it was large, haven’t really played yet, but improved visuals? seriously?  The game already looks incredible.  The sinking animations were spectacular already, can’t wait to see some new variations.

ThatLanteshGuy theeknighthood They hotfixed it already?  Excellent!  I played a couple rounds last night and the entire UI kept bugging out.  Weather effects were pretty though.

theeknighthood It should be for all regions, but the patch was delayed for all the other regions since there were some serious problems when it went live on the NA server. They released the hotfix on NA this morning so everything is working now, but I’m not sure on the release schedule on the hotfix for other regions. You would have to check your region’s site to find out. You should still get the premium time since the client reorganization was for everyone.

Oh sweet, I started the update yesterday but saw 4 gig and closed it to come back later, free premium time sounds worth it to me!
