Part 1 - Introduction
With the release of World of Warships, Wargaming.net has introduced a feature not seen previously in World of Tanks or World of Warplanes - Account Levels.
These levels allow players to unlock extra in-game features and receive bonus rewards as they play either Co-op (PvE) or Random (PvP) Battles.

Some of the account features that can be unlocked via the progression system include the ability to mount Flags (which give you various bonuses) on your ship, earn and use Free XP and even train up Captains for your ships - just to name a few. I'll go into further detail about exactly what can be unlocked as your level increases a bit later.


The quickest and easiest way it to find your current level is to check the top right hand side of the screen while you are logged into the game


As you can see from this image, the top account is at Level 8 and the bottom one is a Level 4 account. Also note the icon next to the Level - each level has it's own unique icon


If you want to see your current progress towards the next Account Level, you can click on the arrow next to your In-game Name



To level up, simply play either Co-op or Random Battles. As you play and earn experience (XP) to upgrade and unlock new ships this XP is also put towards increasing your account level.


When you have gained enough experience, your account's level will automatically increase and unlock new features


Now that I've covered the basics, in next part of this guide I'll be going through each of the available Levels, covering what features get unlocked and any rewards that are given
