Base XP

The warship belonged to the last series of battleships built for the Imperial German Navy. She was distinguished for her powerful 380 mm main guns with extremely good shell ballistics and a rate of fire that was quite high among similar gun systems.

Gnevny was the first in a series of destroyers built in the U.S.S.R. (Project 7). She had good performance characteristics and very high speed and became the backbone of the Soviet Fleet during WW2. She outmatched the majority of foreign destroyers in terms of artillery firepower. Later, a Project 7U was introduced to improve engine and seagoing qualities but lacked good AA protection, which was constantly improved during the WW2.

The Eastern Front

Each month, WoWS Builds hosts a competition that challenges you to put up big numbers. Two ships are selected, one for Damage, one for Base XP. Score highest in each ship, and you'll get rewarded with some excellent prizes.

This month, we're featuring the recently buffed V Gnevny and ever-popular V Bayern.

Gnevny is hot off a recent buff to its offensive capabilities. This buff reduced its main battery reload time, as well as increasing the range of its torpedoes. Surely, this will make it a new threat at tier V. Take out Gnevny this month and score big damage numbers, and be in line for a prize!

Bayern is an early entry to the tough, yet shotgun prone battleships of the German line. While her main battery may have drunken fire control teams, she can take a beating and emerge on the other side. Take out Bayern this month and cross your finger while pulling the trigger, defend caps, and score big base XP numbers to place well!

Read below for more info about how Champions works, and how to participate.

How It Works

  1. During the month of November, take out V Gnevny and V Bayern as much as you want. If you have a stellar game, take a screenshot of the battle results, and upload it using the appropriate button on this page.
  2. Each week, we'll update the leaderboards so you can see who is on top. But, we'll only show a portion of the top score, so there's still some guesswork!
  3. At the end of month, we'll tally up the winners and post the fully leaderboard publicly.

  2. Submissions are open from Midnight, January 1 - 23:59, January 30
