Achieve victory for your side – win prizes!

TimeframeHow it worksDetailsEnlist!


1. Read the event briefing below and choose a side to fight for (Japan or the Allies) by clicking the corresponding button at the end of this article.

  • Pay attention! Just like in the battle of Savo Island, the Allies have the odds stacked against them, but their rewards are more substantial!

2. Gather points for your side by completing objectives.

3. Take home exclusive Shadow Lurker camouflages just for playing!

4. Win Premium ships by giving your most to help your team!

77 years ago to the day, Japanese and Allied fleets clashed in the dead of night near the island of Savo, just off Guadalcanal. Having slipped past American patrols under the cover of darkness, two Imperial Japanese Navy cruiser divisions achieved complete surprise against the bulwark of Australian and American heavy cruisers. What ensued was one of the most confusing and destructive naval engagements of World War II.

The outcome… is up to you.


Timeframe

How it works

  • Choose a side to fight for, then play battles over the weekend following the restrictions specified below (variable depending on side chosen).
  • You can gain Points for your team in two cases: each time you end a battle in one of the top-scoring positions on your team; and each time you win a battle. Whichever side has the most Points at the end of the event wins!
  • Earn at least 10 Points to win the participation prize.
  • For every 10 Points you earn, your name will appear once in the draw for random prizes, making it more likely for you to win one.
  • This event is available on the EU, Asia, and NA servers. All three instances are run separately, so results may vary.
  • Prize pools are also separate, so more prizes for everyone!

Tracking your progress

Upon choosing a team by clicking on one of the above buttons, two missions will appear in your Personal Assignments tab in-game (Combat missions ⇒ Personal Assignments). Each of these will track the number of times you’ve completed each of the two objectives stated above.

You are not expected to complete these missions. They are only there to help you calculate how many points you’ve accrued for your side.

In-game tracking will only track battles that take place from the moment you click a participation button in this article.

Keep in mind:

  • Every ‘Objective 2‘ completed in Co-op battles should be multiplied by 0.5.
  • If you Chose the Allied side, every ‘Objective 1‘ completed should be multiplied by 3.
