Been playing WoWS for a bit after buying into the beta from HumbleBundle.  My service record is at Level 7.  So I know to upgrade to the next ship, I need exchange credits and XP.  When I click on the Convert XP link, I get this:


Why is the Murmansk and All Warships checked?  Whats gonna happen if I click Convert??  Anything going to happen to the Murmansk or my other ships?  Somewhat confusing...

The checked ships are the ones who will have its ship do converted to free do. Free do can be used to buy upgrades for any ship. Nothing will actually happen to the ship itself other then resetting its ship do to 0. Not to be confused with commander experience.

It lets you convert the extra XP from ships which have had all their stuff fully researched (called "Elite" status).  Costs money to do so, but if there is a specific class or tier you like to play, more than some of the ones above, then that's the way to continue progressing while doing so.

Upcoming Anniversary Bonus Code News.  Apparently the news leaked, but the code appears to be for the USS Albany and a free port slot.

Quote
Yes - The code is still active and will remain so. If you have already redeemed, no worries - the ship stays on your account. We're not certain how it got out into the wild early, but I know folks are always excited for free stuffz so I certainly wouldn't punish anyone for talking about it or taking it out for a spin!

Does anyone know if there's a working in-game Squad Voice Chat imlemented in World Of Warships? 

Had some squadding considerations in the works, but didn't know if a separate voice chat program would be needed.

...such a short time to redeem the code!  Glad I checked in this afternoon.

I redeemed it too. Shame the Albany is such an horrible ship. The two tier 1 starter ships have longer range guns, faster rudder shift time, a tighter turning radius, and slightly better concealment rating. Speed is about the same.

I'd rather have it than not have it... I use the 1.5x a day to train captains using the no cost premium swap.

I think this is my best cruiser match thus far.  Due to damage dealt, judging by the Citadel and Torpedo hits. 

Can actually get some decent citadel hits with Aoba's 8 inch guns.

My best averages are still in Destroyers, though.   Because ... sneaky bee awtch!

It'd be interesting to re-look at some of my past battle stats, other than the Summary.  Can you do that?  Are they keeping the stats on each battle, ship or not since its still beta?  If not, be nice to have it.

They don't keep your individual battle stats, after you log out. 

However, they do track your averages and your highest match results per specific ship class on their website. 

If you log in to the World of Warships site and click on the "Players" button near the top right, it has a number of different tabs with your stats listed in various categories.  Unfortunately they don't have all that stuff implemented in the in-game UI yet, but I expect they will eventually (like in the others).
