Please note that all information in the development blog is preliminary, may change during testing and not appear on the main server. The final information will be published on the official portal.

The European update cycle continues in 0.9.3

 

In Update 0.9.3, the European destroyer branch leaves early access, the new "Strong in Spirit" campaign is introduced, and we welcome two European commanders: Grzegorz Brzęczyszczykiewicz and the unique historical commander Jerzy Świrski.

WG_WOWS_SPB_Art_jerzy_swirski_eu_EN_1920x1080.jpg

 

Jerzy Świrski has two talents:

  • Torpedo Reload Expert: upon earning 8 "Torpedo Hit" ribbons, the reload time of torpedo tubes reduces by 5%. The talent can be activated multiple times.
  • AA Guns Aiming Expert: upon earning 20 "Aircraft shot down" ribbons, continuous AA damage increases by 10%. The talent can only be activated once per battle.

 

On top of that, Jerzy Świrski possesses an improved skill:

  • Adrenaline Rush: reduces the reload time of all types of armament by 0,25% instead of 0,2% for each 1% of HP lost.

 

Ranked Sprint

 

From April 29 to May 11, the 11th Ranked Sprint will take place. Battles will be played on Tier IX-X ships of all classes in a 12 v 12 format in the "Arms Race mode".

 

Clan Battles

 

From April 15 to June 8, the 9th season of Clan Battles will be held. Battles will be played on tier X ships of all classes in a 7 v 7 format.

 

Due to the addition of aircraft carriers to this season of Clan Battles, we will introduce a new rule to limit the number of ships in battle: clans can go into battle with either 1 aircraft carrier or 1 battleship in the team.

 

We understand that the appearance of aircraft carriers can greatly affect the gameplay in clan battles. Therefore, we will closely monitor the results of this season and, based on the results, we will decide on further steps in the development of the Clan Battles format.

 

We would also like to mention that there won't be a discount on commander skills redistribution this season. This measure was required in previous seasons so that players could adjust their commanders' skills for battles where aircraft carriers were not a factor.

 

Exterior section update

 

The restriction to the amount of special and economic signals you can mount at once will be removed in 0.9.3. You will still be able to use only up to 8 combat signals for each ship.  In total, up to 21 signals can be mounted on the ship.

 

The "Exterior" tab has also been updated:

  • Pop-up tips for camouflages and signals updated.
  • Introduced an option to mount all available economic and special signals, as well as recommended combat signals for a ship.
  • Introduced an option to demount all signals of each type.
  • Mounting, demounting and changing color schemes of exterior elements can now be done with a mouse click on the corresponding element.

 

WG_SPB_WoWs_screenshots_signals_RU_1920x1080.jpg

 

Tech tree update

 

Added pop-up tips with the description of main specialties of different ship groups inside each tech tree.

WG_SPB_WoWs_screenshots_description_2_RU_1920x1080.jpg

 

Other updates

 

Added the "Japanese Laquer" permanent camouflage for the tier X Japanese destroyer Hayate.

 

WG_SPB_WoWs_screenshots_hayate_1920x1080.jpg

 

Added the "Victory Day" patch and permanent camouflage for the following ships: Alabama, Texas, New Orleans, Duke of York, Implacable, Aigle, Minsk, and Oktyabrskaya Revolutsiya.

The ways of obtaining these items will be announced later.

You still use setups in Clan Battles you would normally not use. Removing the resets is a bad idea.

It was suggested multiple times to introduce two setups for ships. One is specific for Clan Battles and only usable then.

 

The stacking of economic signals on the other hand will allow some mad results.

So we now have a Frequency of ONE Month between Seasons?

I don't know what annoys me more the fact that you guys said you would look into it or the fact that it now is here with Carriers you effectively eliminate the Destroyers from the equation....

Or is there an announcement bout fixes to spotting i have missed?

 

Seriously, please please please slow down.

This isn't fun in any capacity anymore.

So....

We can either bring one BB OR one CV.

So what happens then?

If we bring BB will we face teams that brought a CV and vice versa?

Or will you only face teams that brought one BB too if you bring a BB (and vice versa with CVs)?

I assume so. If we think back to 1v1 sprint: BB's could meet CV's. So I'd say it'll be the same here.

It must be BB vs CV - else it wouldnt make much sense, if you think about it. Because it would mean, that if you chose to, you could play the old way.

 

Also: we used to have a short test phase clanbattles with CVs, where you could bring a CV - back then we also meet clans without CV while we had a CV.

The mirroring of matchmaking happens in random, ranked and coop battles. It is not the case in Clan Battles, so it would be possible to have a team with a CV and a team with a BB in front.

Eh... that's a peculiar amalgamation of content/"content" in that patch. Some good, most of it downright questionable or plainly bad though.

Also: 21 flags per battle, why? And why haven't we still got any flag-presets? I'm going to be spending more time placing and demounting flags than I'll be playing the game.

Will this Clan Battle Season involve the new CV Spotting mechanic where only the CV sees what he is spotting and the other ships in his team only get it on their minimap if they dont have LOS?

Implying AA skills have much value anyways

CB MM doesn't take into account what setup you bring, so you can bring a CV but it won't be mirrored.

Step by step, a lot of smaller quality of life improvements here and a new campaign as requested by our community ;)

Why is Ranked Sprint, the one mode intended to allow more low tier gameplay, now also at T10? Why does everything need to be T10?

SO disgusted I'm at a loss for words.

CBs with random CV and full 6 Minotaurs incoming (2 with radar).

 

CV has no place in CBs. None. There will be no strategy anymore, just lemmingtrains or lemming pushes or smoke camping.

No, like it says above it's the very easy to pronounce EU commander Grzegorz Brzęczyszczykiewicz.

Clan battles with CVs what could possibly be less fun and more annoying, takes away  any opportunity for tactics.
