Current Community Contributors by Server
North America (NA)
NoZoupForYou has been playing World of Warships since closed beta and has been making videos almost as long. His videos include everything from reviews and tutorials to satire and cinematics, providing something for everyone. Lighthearted and friendly, he’s pretty approachable. You can find his videos over at YouTube and watch him stream every once in a blue moon on Twitch. Look him up on Twitter and Facebook as well!
Kelorn is co-founder and co-host of The Warships Podcast, which is released weekly. He started playing World of Warships in the closed beta test weekends and is an avid battleship and cruiser player. Called the game's greatest Yamato apologist, he's never happier than when he's captaining the Japanese super-battleship.
Hyf1re has been around Wargaming since 2011 and picked up World of Warships in alpha stage. He brings a high standard of professionalism to his Twitch stream while still making it easy for his viewers to engage. A skillful destroyer captain who can play all class ships with ease, he is always available to answer questions and discuss changes to the game and ships. He enjoys rock and metal music with little bit of techno beats.
Vulgarr the Viking started streaming on Twitch while World of Warships was still in beta. Since that time he has played it almost exclusively. A laid back streamer, he cares more about helping his team than padding his own stats. Educating, and informing with a splash of entertainment is his ultimate goal. But don't take his calm, friendly demeanor lightly, because with the flip of a switch this "nice guy" can go from zero to hardcore ultra competitive gamer in no time flat.
LittleWhiteMouse got her start writing guides on the North American forums. When she's not collecting skulls for her daddy's comfy chair or stuffing a certain black cat into a box, much of her time is spent working on reviews of premium ships for Ship Comrade.
EN Wiki Editing Staff
As the team lead for the World of Warships EN wiki, SeaRaptor00 spends much of his time herding kittens that just happen look a lot like the other wiki staff. Joining the community in open beta, he is now a self-appointed Apostle of the Church of Hindenburg and spends far more time than is healthy editing wiki pages. When not sinking ships on behalf of the Kriegsmarine or proof-reading someone else's wiki edits, he can occasionally be found on Twitch casting competitive matches of World of Warships, such as King of the Sea.
Personator was one of the first members of the EN wiki team, possessing an avid desire to help build and shape the wiki. When not seal clubbing or playing other games, he's usually found chatting with many other players among the Discord servers, trying to correct and improve players and finding errors on particular pages that might have been overlooked. He can be considered the jokester of the wiki team, and is often the target of Pigeon_of_War's teasings. He currently plays competitively as a member of Absolute Territory [ZR].
Lord_Zath was one of the first members of the EN wiki team, joining at a time when most wiki pages were but empty shells. His passion for photography quickly earned him the position of "resident wiki screenshot guru". Zath is also a supertester, and as such can often be found taking screenshots of various test ships for the wiki. An avid fan of World of Warships, he aims to teach players as much as he can with his new YouTube channel.
mrmariokartguy is probably procrastinating on an assignment right now [Yup! -ed.], but is most likely still typing his way through Discord. Mario finds ways to contribute content to the wiki while trying to avoid becoming lost in the maze of the Internet or watching too much anime. He currently plays competitively as a member of Absolute Territory [ZR].
RivertheRoyal grew up in a library, reading far too much and forgetting what the sun looked like for days at a time. Now, she puts that literary prowess to use on the wiki while lamenting the fact that completely useful letters like "u" are seen as extraneous by Americans. River enjoys staying away from the centre of attention, preferring to watch events in good humour. Do not provoke her lightly though, as she will somewhat flail you with sarcasm of the highest calibre. She likes pizza and ice cream, but has developed a surprising aversion towards pudding.
ZuikakuKaiNi is a member of the EN wiki team. He has played World of Warships since July 2015 and has since become a massive ship collector. When he’s not working on game related matters, he is usually building model ships or planes. He also spends some of his free time playing in a small band with several of his friends. Zuikaku currently plays both casually and competitively as a member of [-ARP-].
As the wiki team’s premier Canuck, TheZeke00 has his hands full teaching his compatriots the art of igloo building and the importance of adding gravy and cheese curds to toasty French fries. As a Wiki Editor, he spends most his time as one of the team’s historians: researching the ships and writing the lore. By all accounts a supreme-grade potato, he still enjoys this game, and what he lacks in ballistic and tactical capabilities, he makes up for it in research and writing prowess.
Tedster_ is the other resident black cat, a wiki team member (and former lead wiki editor), and a supertest coordinator. He is a battleship player who started during the 2nd wave of closed alpha in June 2014, and he is probably whining somewhere about the simplification of the game over the course of testing and release or is making "back in the day" comments. When not attempting to citadel destroyers with whatever battleship is currently being tested, he plays artillery for the current top NA Clan Wars clan in World of Tanks, while also spending way too much time playing Kantai Collection, or reading Friedman-level tomes for entertainment.
The resident Australian of the EN wiki team, Destroyer_Fuyuzuki occasionally emerges from the void to drop a Great Wall of Text in the Service History section of warship pages far beyond the preferred 500 words. She has many a fan-made tech tree to her name and gleefully awaits the release of more Italian warships. She considers herself a budding naval historian, and spends far more time than is healthy on trawling her local libraries for more books to add to her personal database.
Sharkbait_416 is a member of the World of Warships EN wiki team. Since January 2016, he has played World of Warships almost exclusively, becoming an avid ship collector. He deploys these ships into battle frequently and commands them against the red team with aggressive tactics. While his ships are being resupplied, repaired, and sometimes refloated, he enjoys learning about their history and design.
The second Canadian on the wiki the team, _Fantomex_ often spends his time complaining about anything that crosses his mind. He often writes ship performance and build sections, but occasionally dabbles in the historical parts as well. When he's not playing, he's binge watching anime, building scale models, and posting lewd anime images. Has no idea how to properly format images.
A historian and photo collector at heart, Doomlock is the deputy wiki lead for the EN wiki team. When not editing the wiki, he is perusing the web looking for more images of the ships he loves, and has amassed quite a collection of pictures. Usually, he can be seen hanging out on the forums, playing with his clan, Hijackers Anonymous [HINON], learning more about a ship on the internet, or talking up a storm about a ship's history. He recently started co-hosting a podcast called Sink or be Sunk as well.
The first German editor to join the EN Wiki team, SireneRacker is the only member who regularly yells around with non-English words. Most of the time he is seen drinking anything with caffeine and working on ship pages, where his favorite section is the design history of the ship. In-game he spends most of his time playing casually and drooling at some good looking ship models.
The first British member of the EN Wiki team, Kaga_Kai_Ni is a new addition to the team. He currently spends most of his time desperately trying to not get lost and drinking tea. He plays World of Warships both casually and competitively. When he is not busy working on motorcycles or leading his clan, [DAKI], he can be found lurking discords, playing games with friends or 'roasting turkey'.
Phoenix_jz is one of the newer members of the wiki team. An Italian with multiple family members who served in the Regia Marina during the second world war, it's little wonder Italian warships tend to be his focus. When not doing anything to do with World of Warships, he's probably alternating between being buried under a pile of books or rocking out to his favorite bands. Possibly both at the same time. Naval History & Technology is central to his interests, and he is always seeking to expand his knowledge of it.
Aetam started playing World of Warships during closed beta and created a YouTube channel in October 2015. He mostly does commentaries on exceptional battles and has a bi-weekly montage series called Project Wrecked.
StarkPanzer is a Hungarian-speaking content creator focusing on World of Warships and occasionally making content about other Wargaming products. He can be found primarily on YouTube, streaming and making ship showcase type videos.
Stuntman9630 has been playing WoWs since closed beta, starting YouTube in 2016 and Twitch in late 2017. With a high emphasis on statistical analysis, nothing slips past him without some rigorous testing with his trusty sidekick Ollie! And sometimes, that testing does involve being blown up. At least that’s what he claims...
Yuzral can be found primarily on YouTube but also streams regularly on Twitch, bringing a generous helping of prime British snark to live World of Warships action. His personal preference is for destroyers and light cruisers but he’ll play pretty much anything. Announcements and random ramblings can be found on Twitter.
CLyDeThaMonKey has been playing World of Warships since closed beta. A well-rounded player who plays most classes and know most of their abilities, he is also the commander of League of Extraordinary Warship Derps [LEWD] on the EU server. Clyde is a self-proclaimed best average Warship streamer who is very interactive with his chat. He has been streaming World of Warships since August 2015 on Twitch, and he occasionally uploads some his matches to his YouTube channel as well. Follow him on Twitter for updates.
Flambass has been playing World of Warships since closed beta and is very much into the competitive aspects of the game. He has taken part in every single King of the Sea and server clash so far, and is a successful member of Odem Mortis International [OMNI]. Players looking to have fun, listen to good music, and take part in crazy stunts that everyone else thinks are suicidal should check him out on YouTube, watch his daily Twitch streams, and follow him on Twitter.
Harkonnen started playing World of Warships during closed beta, but it wasn't until 2016 that he started The Daily Bounce, his blog about World of Tanks, World of Warships, and other Wargaming titles. The latest World of Warships news can always be found there (even some occasional exclusives). He can also be found on on Twitter, Twitch, and Facebook.
