Commanders, in Update 0.9.5 there will be a soviet cruiser branch split. Due to the entirety of the current branch except Moskva consisting of light cruisers, Moskva will be replaced in the branch by the light cruiser Alexander Nevsky and will herself become a special ship for Coal. Apart from that, cruiser Kirov will be replaced in the branch by Kotovsky and become a premium ship. 

Details of the upcoming changes:

 

  • Cruiser Moskva will get the "special" status. It means that base cost of the ship's post-battle service will be reduced from 180 000 to 90 000 credits and you will be able to assign commanders from other ships of the same nation without penalty or retraining.
  • Players who currently have Moskva researched but not yet bought or have her sold will get Moskva. 
  • If the soviet cruiser branch was reset, a bonus to Research points will be applied to cruiser Alexander Nevsky. 
  • The Unique Upgrade or the mission for it, as well as all purchased permanent camouflages, will remain on Moskva. In case the Type 20 permanent camouflage wasn't purchased, players will get it. 
  • The commander of Moskva will retain his specialization. 
  • Cruiser Alexander Nevsky will be available only when researched and purchased in the tech tree. 
  • The same rules are applied to cruisers Kirov and Kotovsky.

Thanks for the clarification. Should be enough time to grind the Moskva then for me.

So owners will get a refund for it?

Will players also get the "special" Moskva if they currently don't have it researched anymore after reset of the line?

And will they then get the Research points for researching Nevsky the first time?

Oh thats quite Generous for a Change.

Well unless you Reset the Tree for Research Points as it means these Poor Souls have to Finish Regrind before this Update as otherwise they lose their Moskva I guess.

What about players that already own Moskva, what compensation do they get? Or should I just sell it for 50% of the credits...

Again, what about players that already own the permacamo?

What about the people who bought the camo ?

Since everyone will get it regardless, does that means a gold refund for people who bought it ?

Available as in, in port (if I have Moskva)? ready to be purchased? ready to be researched?

Whole changelog feels like it was repeatedly google translated, can we get... clearer version @Tanatoy

I sure hope we at least get a refund for the camo(s)?!

Does this mean you get the Nevsky researched when the Moskva is researched? Or do you need to grind the Donskoi again to 240k XP? That's not really clear to me @Tanatoy

So should I re-research the Alexander Nevsky even though I already have the Moskva River? Put the change where the sun never shines.

Does that mean that if you haven't got past the Kirov, you have to research the tier 5 all over again? That doesn't exactly seem convenient for lower tier players.

So what about if you reset the line before the patch and you happen to have a Moskva with Perma camoflage? Will you still get the Moskva in that case or will you not get it and are stuck with a worthless camo?

Is there a chance for players who don't already have it to still get it at some point? Or will there be Moskwa players and "2nd class" Moskwa players?

Will there be some sort of compensation for those who bought the Type 20 camouflage for their Moskva?

 

EDIT; only goes for the type 20.

I spent 5000 doubloons on a permacammo......and now others who didn't, get it for free?

That doesn't sound fair to be honest, as long as we don't get compensated......like permacammo for the new tier X

They should give all players who purchased it 5k dubs. Otherwise it's totally unfair.

I don't think so, i have the bunny but im assuming if miss kirov is in your port or whatever you should be good to go.

Either way the grind shouldn't take long for her, i hate the bunny atm.

Hi all,

 

So... if I read this correctly... the only way for "compensating" people who already have "Moskva" and/or "Kirov" is to sell them for Credits before the WoWs v0.9.5 patch arrives... :Smile_hiding:

So unlike the previous splits, you don't get the replacement ship Petro? And no compensation for people for bought the perma camo already?
