A Surprise Gift

April Fools' Day is a holiday celebrated in many places around the world. There's no way we could go without celebrating that, so we'll be offering you an unusual gift! You'll find it in the Port immediately after the update is released.

All players who enter the game during the week immediately following the release of Update 0.6.3 will receive a unique gift: a Shchuka-class submarine with a Commander.

  • - The submarine may not be sold but may be hidden away in the Port by applying filters.
  • - Players will not be able to enter battle in any mode with the submarine.
  • - It is impossible to dismiss the existing Commander or recruit a new one for the submarine. The Commander that will be added to the player's account along with the submarine will be removed with it too. It will be impossible to level up or retrain the Commander.
  • - It will be impossible to mount camouflages, upgrades or consumables but signals and flags will be allowed. When the submarine is removed from a player's account, all flags and signals taken off it will be transferred to the player's Inventory.
  • - The armour layout will not be available.

With the release of the update following 0.6.3, the submarine will be removed along with its Commander, but the port slot will be available for use by the player even after the event.

 

So what exactly is the point of this thing? 

 

I hope there will eventually be a mode where we can use the sub.

Your worst case scenario is a free port slot.

This is how WG play tricks on their players on April Fools'.

 

Put a sub which players can't use, watch the forums and in-game chat burst with questions along the line of "How do I play the sub?".

 

As we all know, most people don't read patch notes ;-)

Do know that WG has a usual habit of making fun of the submarine aficionados, kappa.

I wasn't in WOWs last April...so yeah I had no idea.

 

What would have been a great April Fool for the submarine? if it was introduced as part of the game, you take it to battle, and then after a lot of effort you sneak around to the enemies, only to find out that all the submarine can do is shoot out harmless squids out of its torpedo tubes that swim around aimlessly. 

 

Opportunity wasted!

I think is April Fools event (like Space ship event and toy ship event), Please wait more

 

 

Judging by the patch notes, there is nothing else.

 

With the release of the update following 0.6.3, the submarine will be removed along with its Commander, but the port slot will be available for use by the player even after the event.

 

Aside from the patch notes, there are no leaks/news whether or not there'll be a special mode this April Fool's. Either that, or WG decided to keep that special event top secret until April 1st.

 

Either way, we'll get a port slot, so cheers. :tea_cap:

Did we get to keep the port slots from the Halloween event? I thought they got removed with the ships. If so, the same would apply with the sub.
