All Hail the DPM and AS Kings!

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 challenging you to take out two Tier VI ships that are top tier in Alpha Strike and Damage Per Minute – the French Battleship Lyon, and American Light Cruiser Helena!

Lyon, with her formidable 16 gun broadside features in the damage competition. Helena leads up the Base XP competition, sporting fifteen 6 inch guns that can fire every 9.5 seconds.

As always, we'll update the top spots of leaderboards weekly, and have the full leaderboard published once the competition concludes.

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

How It Works

  1. During the month of August, take out Lyon and Helena 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.
