The Recruiting Station: A Simple Guide

Have you ever used the Recruiting Station? If not, then you’ve probably at least heard of it.

As the name suggests, the Recruiting Station is World of Warships’ referral program, and it’s actually much simpler to take advantage of than you might think. In essence, what happens is that a player sends invitations to people who they think would enjoy World of Warships. The inviting player receives rewards when the people they invite accept their invitations and play the game.

Getting Recruits

The Recruiting Station revolves around the relationship between the Recruiter and their Recruits.
A Recruiter can be any player with at least 15 battles fought on their account
A Recruit (a.k.a. Shipmate) is a person who either:

Doesn’t have a World of Warships account
Has fewer than 15 battles on record
Has an account but hasn’t played in 90+ daysIf you fit the criterion to be a Recruiter and you know someone who fits the criteria to be a Recruit, then just send them an invitation through the Recruiting Station interface—either on our website or from your in-game Port screen.

You can send as many invitations as you want to as many people as you want—there’s no downside.

Benefitting From Recruits

Once somebody accepts one of your invitations, they become tied to your account as your Recruit. What does that mean for you?

Community Tokens

For every single battle your Recruit fights alone, 10 Community Tokens will be credited to your account, up to a limit of 1,500 Community tokens per week.
For every single battle you fight in a Division with one or two of your Recruits, 18 or 22 Community Tokens will be credited to your Account, respectively, plus bonus amounts if these battles end in victory.

Premium Account

The first time your Recruit fights a battle playing a Tier VI ship, 3 days of Warships Premium account will be credited to your account.

Doubloon Cashback

You will receive 10% of the total value of every purchase made by your Recruits in the Premium Shop in the form of Doubloons.As you can see, you can pick your own pace. You can actively support your Shipmates in progressing faster and get higher rewards, or you can just send the invite, sit back, and reap the regular Recruit battle rewards without having to lift a finger. The choice is yours!

Spending Community Tokens

So, you’ve recruited an entire gang of Shipmates and you’re swimming in Community Tokens. What now?


Community Tokens are first and foremost an Armory currency.

Head to the Naval Community tab in the Armory interface and take your pick—from signal flags and economic bonuses to Premium ship containers, special Commanders, and Supercontainers.

Invest in your Recruits!

But Community Tokens are not just any Armory currency.

They have a unique property that allows you to spend them in the REWARDS section of the Recruiting Station interface. There, you can exchange Community Tokens for special bundles of two of each type of Recruiting Station container at a discount. What’s special about these bundles is that while one of the containers goes to your account, the second goes to the Recruit of your choice. It offers a welcome chance for them to obtain one of the valuable rewards inside these containers, including Premium ships.
