Brawls in World of Warships has been updated yet again. This time, it’s now a 5v5 match that should make the fights faster and more dynamic. Players can go at it solo or in a Division. The new Brawls starts today, June 7, and lasts until June 14.

Main features include:

  • Each Brawl runs for only a few days.
    • This battle type won’t be available during low-activity periods.
  • ​Players can finish a special combat mission chain and win battles to earn various rewards like Credits and Coal.
  • For those who don’t enter the queue in a Division, they have their allies chosen at random.
    • Matchmaking takes ship type into account.
  • ​The ship-type compositions of each team don't necessarily mirror each other.
  • For each new battle, players won't be matched with any opponents that they fought against in their last several battles.
