The Port Screen is the main hub for World of Warships, and is where players research new ships and modules, outfit them with upgrades, camouflage, and signal flags, look at the tech tree for new ships, get new campaign tasks, play daily missions, and more.


The main screen focuses on a ship sitting in the center of the screen, with the various options, tabs, and buttons around the outside edges of the screen. From the top, players can access their player profile, tech tree, see what currencies they have, get to their clan base (or search for a new clan), and most importantly, select a battle type and head out to battle! From the left side, the campaigns, missions, special events, and the premium shop can be accessed. On the right, the stats of the currently selected ship. Finally the bottom is the ship carousel containing all the ships the player owns, the chat interface, and the notifications/battle results tab, as well as the time.

Higher quality settings are more pleasing to the eyes but draw more power from the computer. In the “Audio” tab, users can adjust the volume level of the game, and set their language preference for the in-game voiceovers. Voice chat settings can also be found here. The final tab allows users to adjust various UI elements of the game, and adjust keybinds.

User Drop-down Menu

View of the user drop-down menu.

Captains can access the user drop-down menu by clicking on their displayed in-game name at the top left of the port screen. Several account related options are displayed here.

  • Under the “Purchase Premium” section, captains can exchange doubloons for premium account time.
  • "Exchange Credits" allows captains to exchange doubloons for credits.
  • Under "Convert XP", captains can use their doubloons to convert elite ship and commander experience into free experience.
  • In the “Premium Shop” tab, captains can access the premium shop from in-game and purchase ships, camouflages, containers, and other game related goods.
Service Record

By clicking on their displayed in-game name, captains can view their service record. This screen displays a captains distinct patch or insignia, their name, and their service record level. With each increase in level, captains unlock various different game elements or game modes. More information about levels can be found on the Account Level page

Invite a Friend

In the "Invite a Friend" menu, captains can find their personal referral link. By sharing this link, captains can receive some additional in-game goods for their account. A list of all players who registered using a captain's personal referral link is displayed here as well.


The "Inventory" menu displays every module, upgrade, consumable, camouflage, and signal flag a captain currently owns. From this menu, captains can sell any extra items or stock ship modules they no longer use for additional credits. An item's sale price will be displayed to the direct right of its name.


In the “News” section, players can access all of the recently published articles from the World of Warships homepage while remaining in-game. Unread articles will be displayed under the “New” tab at the top left. Unread articles will also display a notification icon next to a players name at the top left of the main port screen.

Server Stats


To the direct right of the user drop-down menu, captains can find the World of Warships regional server they are currently logged into, and the total number of players online.

Main Bar


This is the main tab greeting players after initially logging on. It presents a view of a selected ship, and all the toggle-able tabs.

Port Camera

In the port view, players can use their mouse to spin around the ship currently selected, allowing them to get close ups of the model's various details and armaments it possesses. Holding down the right mouse button will let the player change the camera angle without getting rid of the user interface. Holding down the left mouse button will get rid of the user interface, giving the player a view of just the ship and the port.


Each ship can mount modules to increase battle performance, typically by doing things like decreasing the time a fire takes to burn out, increasing main battery rotation speed, and improving a ship's rate of fire on higher tiered vessels. It is highly advised to fill out all available module slots, as the increase to ship performance can be greatly beneficial.

Dropdown menu showing premium and standard damage control parties.

Depending on the ship type and tier, players can use various consumables to help during battle. Battleships come standard with a longer lasting Damage Control Party and a Repair Party consumable, allowing them greater survivability over the course of a match. Destroyers might use the Smoke Generator consumable to hide themselves, or their Engine Boost to temporarily gain an increase in speed. Cruisers tend to have the greatest variety in mountable consumables.

Be sure to check what consumables your ship can mount, and take whatever suits your playstyle best!


Almost all the ships in game have upgrade options, researchable via using experience points gained from battle. These are a natural part of the game's progression system, and will generally make a ship stronger. All tech tree ships from tiers I to IX have upgradable components, and even some tier X ships do as well.

Doubloons are World of Warships's version of Gold from World of Tanks and Warplanes. It is considered premium currency and as such can have a drastic impact on your gaming experience.

Doubloons can be obtained in several ways:

  • Purchased directly from the premium shop.
  • Any amount of doubloons between 500 and 25000 may be purchased with the price in USD being approximately (0.0067 * number of doubloons)^0.9. This is slightly more expensive than the standard packages, but not by much (at most 1.2% difference). The number of doubloons per dollar is between 168 and 250.
  • Purchased as part of a bundle. Examples of these bundles:
  • Premium ship bundles.
  • Weekend Captain's Pass (available most weekends).
  • Check the "Specials" section of the World of Warships shop for limited offerings.
  • Achieving a specific rank during a season of Ranked Battles.
  • Winning various contests. You can find notices of current contests on the NA server via the forums.
  • Various in-game missions.
  • Chance to appear in Supercontainers.
  • Gifts from friends.

Doubloons have a multitude of uses:

  • Exchanging doubloons for credits. The standard conversion is 1 doubloon = 1,500 credits.
  • Converting experience you have on elite ships to Free Experience. Elite ships are ships that have all modules researched; premium ships are elite by default. The standard conversion rate is 1 doubloon = 25 Free Experience.
  • Purchasing some premium ships via the tech tree.
  • Purchasing premium time, which provides a 50% increase in credit and experience earnings as well as a special port with a unique soundtrack.
  • Instantly retraining a commander on a new ship (500 doubloons).
  • Redistributing commander skills (cost increases as the number of commander skills increase; 25 doubloons per assigned point).
  • Demounting upgrades from a ship (25 doubloons); this equipment can then be applied to a different ship. Note that you can also sell equipment for 50% of the credit cost.
  • Purchasing port slots (300 doubloons per slot).
  • Expanding the size of your commander reserve (100 doubloons for 4 slots).
  • Purchasing special consumables such as permanent camouflage (1,000 - 5,000 doubloons) or special camouflage (30-60 doubloons) or premium consumables. Camouflage can enhance experience gain, while premium consumables recharge faster and may give you an extra use.
  • Promoting a new captain to three (3) Commander skill points immediately (25 doubloons).


Credits is the primary form of currency in World of Warships. Credits can be used to buy unlocked tech tree ships, premium consumables, modules, upgrades, and commander retraining.

Players earn credits through battles, campaigns, containers, premium shop bundles, or special missions. Base credit income in battles is dependent on performance and may be modified by credit modifiers such as the "Zulu" signal flag and "Ocean Soul" camouflage. Premium time will increase base credit income by 50%. Factors such as damage, spotting damage, capture and defense points, plane kills will positively affect credit income in a battle. All premium ships have a higher base credit income rate; some premiums, like Missouri, earn even more credits than a normal premium ship.

Credits can also be obtained by converting doubloons to credits at a rate of 1 doubloon to 1500 credits.

Free XP

When a player reaches Account Level 5, they unlock Free Experience. Free Experience can be spent to unlock any ship or module, regardless of what ship it was earned with. All experience earned in battle earns the player an additional 5% as Free Experience. This rate can be increased by mounting certain camouflages or the Papa Papa signal. Free XP can also be obtained by converting Standard Experience earned on Elite ships (ships that have every module and following ship researched) at the rate of 1 Doubloon per 25 Free Experience converted. Wargaming occasionally offers sales that increase this rate. Free XP can also be used to train captains if the player has used up all of their Elite Commander Experience.
By clicking the "+" symbol next to a captain, Elite Commander XP and/or Free XP can be used to gain Commander skill points.

Battle Interface


Divisions allow you to play a match of World of Warships with your friends, clan mates, or even random players that you want to play with multiple times. Divisions for Random Battles are limited to three people, but divisions for Scenario battles can be up to seven people, and Clan Battles require a seven-person division made of clan members.

To create a division, click the "Create Division" button that is to the left of the Battle! button at the top of the port screen.

The Create Division window

The purple is the "Looking to join a Division" option. Captains can select this if they want to advertise themselves for other people to division with. If this option is picked, your username, account level, and clan tag will appear in the "Looking for Division" area (orange).

In the green, "Divisions of the Clan", any divisions that are being hosted by members of your clan will be shown. Clicking on the division will give you a few options, including an option to join the division without an invite. This section is particularly useful for managing the seven person divisions used in Clan and Scenario Battle types.

In "My Contacts" (red), you will see a list of all players in your contacts list, as well as their in-game status. Clicking their names will allow you to invite them to a division.

You can also invite people to a division directly from your Contacts List in the lower-left corner of the port screen.

The "Looking for Division" (orange) area will show any captains who have used the "Looking to join a Division button in the (purple) area.

Finally, the Search Bar at the bottom (blue) allows you to search for players not in your contacts or clan, and invite them to a division.

Battle Type Selector

Selecting the button to the right of the Battle! button opens up the battle type selection screen. Here, captains choose what type of battle they want to enter. When a battle type is selected, the selection screen will either close and the port will reappear with the selected battle type beside the Battle! button, or a new screen will open up (for Training and Operations).

Battle Type Selection Screen


Entering into a battle after selecting a game mode is easy; simply click the big red Battle! button at the top of the port screen.


Ship Stats

View of the ship statistics panel with some categories expanded.

The Port features an overview of the selected ship's statistics on the right hand side of the screen. One can see the ratings assigned to each category, or open the drop down menu for hard numbers. The categories include Survivability, Aircraft, Armament, Torpedoes, AA Defense, Maneuverability, and Concealment. Hovering the mouse over various items on the sidebar will produce a smaller window displaying additional information about that item. When mounting upgrades and modules, these statistics will change to reflect the ship's new abilities.

Armor Viewer

The Port also features an armor viewer. By clicking on the "Armor Layout" button on the stats sidebar, one can toggle the viewer on and off, as well as select which categories of armor are displayed, allowing the user to remove outer layers in order to see internal armor. This armor model is overlayed on the model of the ship in port, and is accessible on unpurchased or unresearched ships as well.

Port Selection

The ribbon can be seen right below the gears.

Port Selection can be done through the blue ribbon at the top left corner of the screen just below the gears for the in-game menu.

In the port selection screen, there are various ports to choose from. After clicking on the desired port, press "Save Changes" to select the port. Some ports are only present for limited time events. The Naval Base Port is only available for captains that have a premium account.

Left Column

Special Events

Premium shop




The screen to access Containers can be accessed by clicking the container banner on the left side of the screen while in Port. The banner displays the current amount of daily experience earned, how much is remaining to earn the next container, and how many containers are available to be opened. When the player clicks the container banner, the camera view will shift to the deck of a nearby transport ship. From here, players can collect and open three daily containers. When collecting a container, players can choose from a selection of containers. Upon choosing, a crane will lower a container onto the deck. The container will burst open when "Open Container" is clicked, and the contents will be rewarded to the player's account. Containers rewarded to the player can be opened from this menu.



The Campaign menu can be accessed on the left column on the Port screen. Upon opening the Campaigns menu, available campaigns will be displayed. From here, various campaigns can be chosen. The selected campaign will show available missions in a new window. By clicking the mission, the player will be shown mission tasks in a new window. Each of the tasks provides a certain number of stars, which are required to progress to the final task. To begin, click on the desired task and follow the prompt. Players can exit this screen by clicking "Back to Campaigns" in the upper left-hand corner or by pressing the ESC key. Pressing ESC will exit the menu and return the player to Port. While working on tasks, the Campaigns menu banner in port will update to show "In Progress." When tasks are completed, it will update to say "Collect Rewards."

Players with a Standard Account can only earn progress on two tasks at once. Players with Premium Account time can earn progress on three tasks simultaneously.

Honor to Heroes


The Honor to Heroes display can be found on the left side of the Port screen when the player has been rewarded for completing campaign tasks, personal missions, or for earning achievements while in battle. Rewards can be viewed by hovering the mouse cursor over the container icon when it appears. The number next to the icon designates the number of rewarded items. Honor to Heroes, unlike other menus in port, will disappear once the player views it. It will only reappear once additional items have been rewarded.

All rewarded items can be viewed in the Honor to Heroes menu. Signal flags such as Juliet Charlie (-100% to the risk of your ship's magazine detonating.) are frequently rewarded for earning certain in-game achievements. Other rewards may include, but are not limited to, camouflages such as Ocean Soul (-3% to surface detectability range. / 4% to maximum dispersion of shells fired by the enemy at your ship. / +100% to experience earned in the battle. / +20% credits earned in the battle.), consumables such as Repair Party II (While active, restores a fixed percentage of a ship's hit points each second.), standard or premium currency (Wows_credits.png/Icon_1.png), and upgrades such as Artillery Plotting Room Modification 1 (Extends the firing range of the main battery and secondary battery: +16% main battery firing range. / +5% secondary battery firing range. / -5% secondary battery dispersion.). These rewards vary depending on what promotions or in-game events are occurring at the time.

Ship Carousel

The carousel filter menu.

Carousel Filter

The carousel filter menu can be accessed from selecting the filter funnel icon located at the top far left of the carousel section. From here, the player will be given seven options, each with their own subcategories, on modifying their search for their desired ship(s). They can also select a combination of filter options for a quick search.

Filtering by USA ships only.
The following seven options for filtering / searching are:
  1. Searching for the ship by entering in the name (must click on the magnifying glass).
  2. Filtering / searching by tier.
  3. Filtering / searching by ship type.
  4. Filtering / searching by nation.
  5. Filtering / searching by elite tech tree type, premium type, suitable for specials, and ships with or without a commander.
  6. Compacting the carousel into a number of desired rows (1-4). NOTE: Ships will be displayed top to bottom first and then left to right.
  7. Displaying the order of ships by nation, tier, type, or most recent battle.

Whilst selecting the filter options, ships not in the scope of the desired filter will be darkened out / dehighlighted like those without commanders, as shown in the following example screenshot on the right.

A list of the possible visual filters.

Ship Visuals Filter

The visual filter menu can be accessed from selecting the two gears icon at the far top right of the carousel section. These are toggle options for whether the player wants to see a ship with its unique visual or not, such as the Arpeggio ships. However, for ships such as the High School Fleet ships, because their unique visuals are also mountable camouflage schemes, they will have their camouflages demounted and hidden from the player.

Chat Interface

Private Messages

Clan Messages

Battle Reports and Notifications

In the lower left corner a box with an Exclamation mark can be found. Clicking on it will open a window which grants access to recent Battle Reports and Notifications.

Battle Reports

The Battle Reports window will list all of the battles that the account played since it's last log-in, so if you have logged out all the Reports are gone. Each entry will tell you the ship you played, whether or not the battle was a victory, the map and time of the battle. For Scenarios the number of stars achieved is also displayed.

When hovering the mouse over an entry, a small window will show up showing the amount of kills, the earned XP and the earned Credits.


Just like the Battle Reports this page gets reset every time you log out. This list will contain all interactions that add or remove something. This includes Flags, Signals, Camoflage, Consumables, Captains, Containers and also Karma in case you were complimented or reported.
