World of Warships: Update 12.1 Introduces Global Combat Missions and More

Update 12.1
Update 12.1 Wargaming Studios

Update 12.1 is bringing Global Combat Missions to World of Warships. This patch is expected to roll out on February 15 at 5 a.m. EST.

Global Combat Missions in World of Warships are missions that require community participation. They are offered as individual missions or as part of a chain where players need to accomplish them sequentially. Players who have contributed to the global combat mission progress will receive a reward upon completion.

As for mission chains, players are eligible to receive the final reward just by participating in at least one of the parts. However, they cannot receive rewards for the parts of the mission chain that they have not completed. It’s important to note that the global combat mission chain will only be available once the new British submarines arrive in World of Warships, which is three weeks after Update 12.1 goes live.

The upcoming patch is going to implement balancing changes and bug fixes as well. Here are some of them:
