The Ring Competition Rules

Entry Conditions:

  • Participants must be current members of the World of Warships Community Contributor Program.

How to Enter:

  • Entrants must post a 3-minute video on their own YouTube channels with the hashtag #IAMCOMMANDER in the title. In this video, contestants must tell us who they are, how they intend to win, and why they deserve to become an in-game commander in World of Warships. The 10 successful candidates, who have been selected to participate in the competition, will be announced in a special video on the Official World of Warships YouTube Сhannel.
  • In subsequent rounds, contestants will be required to complete in-game missions, revealed in later videos published on the Official World of Warships YouTube Сhannel, and send their videos directly to the WoWs Team.
  • In this video, they will show how they completed the task and provide proof of their success, along with a commentary posing as a commander of the nation they are representing. This video will be uploaded to the Official World of Warships YouTube Сhannel where the audience response will be gauged and measured to determine who will proceed to the next round.


  • Eight of the initial ten competitors will be selected internally by the World of Warships Team. The remaining two competitors will be decided through a public vote.
  • The success of each of the subsequent round videos will be determined using a formula to gauge audience engagement and response. The formula will result in a value that means a competitor with a large channel will have to work just as hard as a competitor with a smaller number of followers. This formula is as follows: (VIEWS + LIKES + COMMENTS) / SUBSCRIBERS AMOUNT

Time Frames for Submission and Voting:

  • Friday: Video published on the Official World of Warships YouTube Сhannel with the task description and mission code.
  • Saturday–Sunday: Competitors complete the set task, make a video, and send it to the World of Warships team.
  • Monday: All videos are uploaded and published simultaneously on the Official World of Warships YouTube Сhannel.

    Participants may boost their chances of success by uploading a teaser to their own channels, urge their audience to support them by watching their submission on the World of Warships channel, and highlight the need for the watcher to like and comment on the video.

  • Tuesday–Thursday: Voting process. Data is collected and calculations are made to find the winner.
  • Friday: The winner(s) of the round will be announced in a special video on the Official World of Warships YouTube Сhannel.

Staged Reward System:

  • With each round, all competitors will earn codes to giveaway to their audiences. These rewards are cumulative, the longer a competitor remains in the competition, the more rewards they earn.
  • Rounds 1–4: Winners will be granted 10 CCT Container Codes each. Losers will earn 30 Container Сodes each.
