Hi guys,

 

 

for all of us that are prone to overlooking some of the goodies WG tends to "hide" within their news articles here a friendly reminder that with the arrival of update 0.8.7 this Thursday we will have one week of free commander respec.

 

Quote

In relation to the changes made to the priority sector mechanics and "Massive AA Fire" skill, all players will be able to reset their Commanders' skills for free during the week following the Update's release.

The discount can be obtained until August 29. Click the button below to activate it.

 

You can find the respective button if you scroll down to approximately middle of the news article:

Best regards,

Ubertron_X

Because just doing it ingame was too difficult apparently.

(Or could cut into their earnings off of their... target audience I suppose.)

Has anybody understood the new AA mechanism or do you still need  PhD?

I guess someone at WG took lessons from lawyers, the less clear and understandable game mechanic, event description and what have you the better:cap_book:

Long range, mid range and short range AA overlap again.

 

Long range AA is split between flak bursts and aura effect, flak bursts are outer sector only so the effectiveness of long range AA drops as planes get closer. Mid-range and short range AA is still aura effect.

 

Active sectors that you can leave on is replaced by pointing camera left or right and pressing O to do burst damage vs aircraft, this also raises continuous damage in the left/right AA zone from 100% to 150% over 10 seconds and then 10 seconds of 150% dpm (varies slightly by class of ship).

 

Massive AA (terrible name) gives double burst damage but removes the buff to continuous damage, it appears to be aimed at ships with low base AA as a last ditch defence. Not sure if skill is worth specing.

 

Continuous damage, flak damage and aircraft hitpoints have all been rebalanced with the effect of reducing the gap between tiers.

So you still have to press O...let's see how that works while you are turning and shooting.

Yes... and no. I think it now triggers based on the side your camera is facing so at least it isn't a push-hold-click.

And you should be able to remap the button to something more convenient

Will be nice if you have to dodge torps coming from one side while planes approach from the other side.

Why not two keys, one for each side?

What an ingenious new way to screw people who don't lurk forums and articles.
WG  raises the bar for greed yet again, bravo!

Many thanks for providing that explanation for those of us who are not PhDs or Colonels! :Smile_honoring:

Like you, I'm very unsure if the "Massive AA" skill is worth 4 hard-earned skill points.

We have posts of people who whined their PhD friends did not understand a thing when reading an announcement....

 

Considering that basic reading is an advanced skill for the WoWs playerbase, it is not far fetched that some people think you need an advanced degree to understand the stuff posted.

I don't understand why they put these things in the news, instead of in the game client, or preferably it happens without having to do anything - unless they are deliberately trying to hide it. What was wrong with the previous way the implemented the free respec?. Answer = nothing!

 

I missed out on the Ovechkin commander for the same reason - not that interested in reading the news!

Is this only for clan members? If not that's first good thing I've seen dis summer. Sneakily hidden so as to be missed by most players but okay, I will overlook that too. Thanx WG, this was sorely needed.
