This is a guide to get the Hololive Commanders (Houshou Marine and Shirakami Fubuki) for free by creating a new DMM account.

News: https://worldofwarships.asia/en/news/general-news/hololive_commanders/
Starts: 2020/06/11 @ 08:00 (UTC+8)
Ends: 2020/06/30 @ 22:59 (UTC+8)

 

Recommended:

  • 80GB+ free storage space (You can delete update files after the DMM WoWS client is done installing to about 52GB)
  • Be prepared to download 6.9GB + 26GB of content for the DMM WoWS client.
  • Clear cookies/cache on Wargaming and DMM websites or just change your default browser to some browser you've never used before (This is to prevent wargaming/DMM automatically logging in to your existing account(s))
  • A VPN is necessary (It may be possible without one, but I couldn't find a way). I recommend TunnelBear as you'll just need to be brought onto a page via VPN. You can switch off the VPN when downloading.

 

Steps:

1. First, go to DMM games website (https://games.dmm.com/en/) and create a new account. Confirm your email and proceed to the next step.

 

2. Go to the WoWs DMM website (https://dg.worldofwarships.asia/).

Click the Play Button. A popup with two buttons will appear:

  • Blue Button: "今すぐプレイ!"(Play Now)
  • Orange Button: "DMM GAME PLAYER" "インストール(<Your OS>版)" (Install DMM Game Player)

Don't download the launcher (Orange Button). I was stuck on an Update Loop from v2.4.6 -> v2.5.5. Apparently the link they gave was for an older version (When I tried it). Instead, click the underlined link below (DMM GAME PLAYERとは?), where you will be redirected to a page with another orange download button. This should give you the latest version of the Game Player. Download and install.

3. After it is done installing, it will prompt you to login. If it brings you to the home page with your account already logged in, it means there was some files from a previous install still present in your device. (Switch to your new account if needed).

 

4. Downloading the Game

Using a VPN, switch to Japan and go back to the WoWs DMM website (https://dg.worldofwarships.asia/). Press Play and this time click the Blue Button "今すぐプレイ!"(Play Now). This should bring you directly to where you can download the WoWs client in the DMM Game Player.

Click the Orange button. Tick the first box out of the three (Accepts Terms), and begin downloading the WoWs client.

Note: This client is different from the regular WoWs client, I recommend putting it into different folder than your existing WGC WoWs folder.

There are 2 stages to the download, a 6.9GB patch, followed by a 26GB patch. The download will take a while.

If your download is slow (for me it was 100kb/s, which is essentially days), you can download the patches via HTTP from the links inside "WoWsLauncher.log"...

Spoiler

These are the final files that should be in your "Updates" folder.

1. After download has started and you find it taking forever, close the game.

2. Go into the folder where the game is installed in, then into the "Updates" folder, take note and delete the ".download" and the files with the same name as the ".download" files.

3. Go back to the game folder, find and open "WoWsLauncher.log"

4. Find the links like these, usually near the bottom.

5. Copy and paste them into your browser of choice, remove the ".torrent" part and start downloading.

6. After downloading ALL the files stated in the "WoWsLauncher.log", move the downloaded files into the Updates folder (if you haven't), and open the WoWs launcher again.

7. Wait for it to install. After that, it will start the 2nd download phase. Repeat the above steps, don't delete the files you just downloaded from the browser.

8. After the 2nd installation, you're done!

9. You can remove the files in the "Update" folder to free up some space. (Make sure you can press the "Play Button" in your launcher first!)

You should be able to press the "プレイ" (Play) button in the DMM WoWs launcher now.

 

5. Creating a DMM WoWs account

After logging in the game, you should see this.

This is where you will be linked to create your account. If there's no conflicts with existing account from browser cookies/cache, you will be able to enter your new username here.

If you are brought to login with your existing account...

Spoiler

just clear the cache for wargaming websites in your browser and try again. If the same message doesnt appear in game anymore, you will have to find the link from your browser history.

Enter the username you want for your account. The first checkbox is to agree with terms. Create the account with the orange button.

 

6. Play battles

From the DMM WoWs website: "Reach account level 7 by completing 11 battles".

The whole game will be stuck in JP language, but the UI is the exact same as EN version, so just play 11 battles. I recommend playing Co-Op as it is the fastest and using IJN ships as the Hololive Commanders are for IJN only.

 

7. Reaching Account Level 7

You will see that you have unlocked Commanders for your ships. I did not receive the Hololive commanders until I restarted the game.

Clicking this in DMM Game Player will bring you to your games, where you can start up WoWs again.

You should receive them once you enter the port. Congrats and have fun with your new cat Fox and 40 year old cosplayer Pirate commanders!

 

To link your account to Wargaming (and stop using the DMM client to play)

Spoiler

Go to https://asia.wargaming.net/id/signin/ and click login with DMM Games.

You will be brought onto a page with a window called "Update particulars".
Enter your email and password, you will be using this to play the game using WGC.

Be sure to try and login via WGC before uninstalling the DMM client!

 

I decided to make this after seeing the complete lack of instructions on both WG and DMM's websites on how to even go through the whole process to obtain these 2 commanders. After spending days figuring it out, I hope you will be able to get them too! Hopefully this helped you! (^・ω・^§)ノ

Nope, just regular commanders. They start out at 6 skill points. You do unlock their voiceover mod in the settings after getting them though.

can someone upload the en global.mo file for me? it's full of Japanese so I can't understand anything. I'm trying to translate it but it takes too much time.

 

I'm not sure if it will work as it's using the old WoWs launcher; but you can find a "global.mo" file inside WGC's WoWs folder.
