April Fool’s Day is generally celebrated by playing a good-natured practical joke, or, in Wargaming’s case, an entire parade of special in-game events created for its passionate community! In “Moon Mayhem” (April 1 – 5) World of Tanks PC establishes its first colony on the Moon. Why? Because why not? In this event, you command the latest weapon in spherical tank technology: the IS 8-BALL.
In the space-age vehicles, players must knock other commanders on the “Crater” map into one of several billiard-type holes. Of course, there is lesser gravity! With less friction, various in-game hazards, like Meteor Showers and strange gravitational anomalies, offers an out of this world experience. All players have to do is enter the Garage, choose the IS 8-Ball and click the Battle! button.
April Fool’s Day in World of Warships (March 31—April 11) exchanges the high seas for hot tubs in the special “Ruinberg In Jacuzzi” map. Take charge of the captain’s boat from the animated series “Bad Advice” and battle other players! All players have to do is search their Ports for the 4 types of vessels available: the Pokeboat (JP), Botishkaff (RU), Das Boot (DE) and Bottlesheep (US).
Choose whichever ship you take a fancy to, then click the Battle! button. Each ship sports a Fish captain at the helm, stylized with the nation of its ship. When the little boat is bobbing in your port, a 3D model of “Bad Captain” will be visible on the ship. While the captain lacks a bikini, you can hear some of his trademark sounds from the show. Why not stick your toe in the water? Have a good day!
