THE team at Wargaming are offering digital sailors 14 days of free premium access for World of Warships as part of their efforts to help entertain everyone stuck at home during the COVID-19 Pandemic.
While the base game has always been free to play (and like its sister title, World of Tanks, is actually legitimately playable for free), a premium account offers more rewards; notably faster XP acquisition and therefore research time on new ships etc.
Having something to eat is a time-honoured way of keeping morale up, so for something different, the Wargaming team have also provided recipes of food served to both US Navy and Imperial Japanese Navy crews during WWII – a bean soup, macaroni and cheese, and a Japanese curry.
While originally designed to feed literal shiploads of people, the recipes have been scaled down to feed a family. Also, given Kosher salt isn’t always easy to find in Australia (particularly at the moment), Sea Salt is a good substitute – and will fit in with the naval theme of the meals, too.
Eating all that delicious food while working from home and presumably not exercising as much (it’s OK, no-one who matters is judging you; we’re all in the same boat) is probably not an optimal state of affairs either, but someone at Wargaming HQ has evidently been through US Navy training manuals and found some exercises which gamers can do at home.
The good thing about these is they require no equipment and only a modest amount of space, and can easily be slotted in between gaming sessions if you’re so inclined.
The free Premium Account time can be redeemed until 8pm AEDT on Friday, April 3; for more information visit https://worldofwarships.asia/ or https://worldofwarships.eu/en/news/general-news/safe-passage-through-stormy-seas/
