Update 0.9.10 ushers in the “Always Courageous” collection.
This provides an excellent opportunity to refresh your memory about the collections available in-game and why it’s worthwhile to complete them.
The "Always Courageous" Collection
The new collection will educate you about the battleship guns, admirals, and medals for service in both World Wars, as well as the main uniform types of enlisted men of the U.S. Navy during World War II. The collection consists of four sections, with four elements in each:
The rewards for completing each section are five expendable Stars 'n' Stripes camouflages and patches that include Wings, Stars, and Stars 'n' Stripes.
Completing the entire collection will bring you V Oklahoma in the Military camouflage and a Commander with 6 skill points.
V Oklahoma is a Nevada-class battleship with a distinctive layout of ten 356 mm guns distributed between two twin turrets and two triple turrets. The guns have decent accuracy and a good firing range. They are also capable of inflicting significant damage per salvo, but take rather a long time to reload. In close quarters combat, the battleship can rely on her accurate secondary battery guns.
The exchange rate for duplicate elements is 4:1. After you complete the collection, all duplicates will automatically be exchanged for 15,000 credits each.
Elements of the collection can only be obtained from event-related containers. In Update 0.10.5, we're planning to add Always Courageous containers to the Armory. They will be available in exchange for Coal. Thus, you'll still be able to complete the collection and obtain V Oklahoma if you haven't managed to do so in Update 0.9.10. The exact cost of the containers will be announced later.
Join the hunt for new collection items, complete the existing collections, and claim valuable rewards!
Collections are an excellent way to discover some interesting historical facts and obtain some desirable rewards along the way in the form of permanent camos, Commanders, and other desirable in-game items and abilities.
Our collections are designed to educate about the history of naval forces, significant operations, and famous historical figures. Sometimes “unhistorical” collections appear in the game as well. They are sometimes dedicated to collaborations with other brands (for example, the collection inspired by the popular High School Fleet anime series), or focus on the World of Warships game itself.
Collections are made up of various elements: coats of arms of warships and combat units; items dedicated to renowned personalities; weapons, ships and aircraft; insignias; and much more. Each image is accompanied by a detailed description. For players’ convenience, elements are divided into thematic sections. When each collection section is completed, an additional reward is unlocked. When all the elements of a collection or section are in place, a window informing the player about the associated reward will be displayed. The collection will then be marked with an icon stating that it’s "Complete," which means that you can return to it anytime to read the information about its elements.
Where can I find my collections?
In the Profile section of the Port. You gain access to each collection after obtaining its first element.
Please note: the Collections tab won't be visible if you have no collection items.
Where can I get collection items?
In most cases, you'll find collection items in containers that share the same name as the collection. Clicking on a collection item that was dropped from a container will transfer you to the screen of the corresponding collection. But there are exceptions—for example, items from a collection dedicated to the Anniversary of World of Warships in 2017 were issued for special achievements earned in battle.
What is a subscription?
You can subscribe to some of the collections. This way, you can choose which large collections you want to actively collect. You can obtain the first elements of these collections in special containers. By activating a subscription, you’ll be able to find the rest of the collectibles in the following containers: More Credits, More Signals and Camouflages, More Resources, and Try Your Luck. You can only subscribe to one collection at a time under the Profile tab.
What is a duplicate?
When completing a collection, it’s possible to obtain an item you already have—this is called a “duplicate.” When you have a certain number of duplicates from the same collection, you can exchange them for any item you might still be missing. To do that, you need to select a vacant slot in an album and confirm that you want to exchange your duplicates for this missing item in the window that appears. The cost of such an exchange depends on the collection, but it’s usually 2–5 duplicates per item. Once a collection is complete, any remaining duplicates of that collection are automatically exchanged for credits. The exact exchange rate depends on the specific collection. Thus, you can decide whether you want to obtain the main reward for collecting all the elements as soon as possible, or prefer to get more duplicates to earn more credits.
There are currently 16 collections available in the game. The items of these can be obtained from containers that share the same name as the collections in the Armory in exchange for Coal. Exceptions: Yamamoto Isoroku, "Bad Advice: Behind the Scenes,” “King of the Sea,” and "Five Epochs of the Navy."
