Mentioned in Dispatches

 One of the things I think World of Tanks does better than World of Warships is reward players with achievements and medals.  When earning “heroic achievements” in World of Tanks, players on the losing team get a “courageous resistance” bonus, treating them as if they were on the winning team for the purposes of credit and experience gains.  This can provide a welcome salve when one has an epic game and still ends up losing.
Here’s some suggestions for possible awards in World of Warships.
  • Levianthan’s Hunger:  8 kills
  • Neptune’s Wrath:  10 kills.  Nep-Nep.
  •  Apex Predator:  Kill one of every ship type and survive the battle.
  •   Fly Swatter:  In a single strafe, destroy 15 or more enemy aircraft.  Aircraft Carriers Only.
