Please note that all information in the development blog is preliminary and subject to change during testing. Showcased features may or may not end up on the main server. Any final information will be published on our game's website.

 

We adjusted the parameters of these ships based on testing results : 

  • American battleship California, Tier VII
  • Soviet cruiser Kotovsky, Tier V
  • Soviet cruiser Mikoyan, Tier V
  • Soviet battleship Zarya Svobody Tier IX
  •  German cruiser Ägir Tier IX
  • French battleship Champagne Tier VIII
  • German aircraft carrier Manfred von Richthofen Tier X

American battleship California, Tier VII:

  • The "Fighter" consumable was added to the same slot as the "Spotting Aircraft" consumable;
  • Sigma parameter increased from 1.8 to 1.9;
  • Main battery firing range increased from 19.1 to 19.9 km.

Soviet cruiser Kotovsky, Tier V:

  • Torpedo parameters were changed:
    • Torpedo speed increased from 55 to 64 knots;
    • Torpedo range reduced from 8.0 to 4.0 km;
    • Torpedo detectability increased from 1.1 to 1.3 km,

Soviet cruiser Mikoyan, Tier V:

  • Main battery reload time increased from 12.5 to 13.2 s;
  • Torpedo parameters were changed:
    • Torpedo speed increased from 55 to 64 knots;
    • Torpedo range reduced from 8.0 to 4.0 km;
    • Torpedo detectability increased from 1.1 to 1.3 km,

Soviet battleship Zarya Svobody, Tier IX:

  • Sigma parameter reduced from 1.9 to 1.8.

German cruiser Ägir, Tier IX:

  • Shells' parameters were changed:
    • AP shell's maximum damage reduced from 9,400 to 9,100;
    • HE and AP shell ballistics were changed: shells will now take a bit longer to reach their target when fired at any distance;
    • AP shell armor penetration remains almost the same as before changes.

French battleship Champagne, Tier VIII:

  • Shells' parameters were changed:
    • Maximum AP shell damage reduced from 13,200 to 12,100;
    • HE and AP shell ballistics were changed: shells will now take a bit longer to reach their target when fired at any distance;
    • AP shell armor penetration was reduced.
  • The number of "Repair Party" consumables reduced to 3.

German aircraft carrier Manfred von Richthofen, Tier X:

  • Parameters of stock attack aircraft were changed:
    • The size of an attack flight increased from 2 to 3;
    • The number of aircraft per squadron increased from 8 to 9.

First you increase Californias reload, then you improve her Sigma. I would like a better reload on her.

 

Ägir did not make an impression of a strong ship. Reducing her performance further, especially AP performance, that requires careful aim, does not make the ship very appealing.

Overall, okay changes imo. (besides Agir)

Mehh disagree here:

 

- Why have 20km on a shotgun like the California/New Mex? Gimme better reload ... imho she was fine until the reload change

- Champagne didn't struck me as a particularly strong ship to begin with ... especially since she seems to have a regular heal and not the reduced CD heal that the Gascogne or Massachusetts have.

 

Don't know though how Manfreds change will turn out ... we'll see.

anyone think that 4km torpedo range way too small for any ship?

Well ... apart from the Dimitri Donskoi (and some RU premium cruisers) all RU cruisers have 4km as a standard range ... my initial question was: Why did they get something out of the line in the first place.

Those poor US Battleslugs keep feeling the WeeGee Love, You'd have to be a Blithering Idiot to stump Up for that :etc_swear:ed up thing, It's got to be an event prize or something like it.

Agir , The poor thing get's Ar5% Reamed to Death before it even gets to the game.

Champagne, Is that another Six Gun Wonder getting it's reduced main battery a baked in Nerf

As for the Soviet Sips, Strong and Well Balanced as Always Comrades :Smile_honoring:

Dimitri Donskoi

 

i play Dimitri Donskoi almost every day atm for collect the xp for next ship and had to say 8 km range torpedoes  not really useful, unless if go suicide yourself.

 

they really are the backup plan torpedoes, in 4km its even worse

not really useful

Sure, but that doesn't change the fact that the Dim Don is the outlier in terms of torpedo range among silver cruisers. All the RU cruisers from Svietlana to Chappa have 4km range ... I've just questioned why the Kirov replacement suddenly would've had 8km torps ...:cap_hmm:

I heard we are getting a new dockyard event so I guess Agir is the reward.

I was expecting some mechanic changes / buffs on the Roosevelt.

Maybe there is not enough data yet. :cap_hmm:

The problem with champagne was that it almost had slava pen, and 25mm plating. A very extreme concept, and I think its hard to rate this ship without playing it. If it can be played like slava, you wont eat that much damage.

Just bring the secondaries on the Aegir and keep the Siegfried as a normal cruiser. Give us some fun and originality for once.

As a German I never heard anyone use to the male pronoun for ships, it's die Bismarck or die Admiral Graf Spee even though they are named after dudes.

 

In case of the Bismarck, there were some folks who thought that the ship would be to strong to be a female, hence some referred to her as "him".

But the majority still called her "Die Bismarck".

 

Considering the chances: No suprise to see german and frech ships getting nerfed.

 

And Cali still sparks 0 interest,

I dont get why cali's reload was changed, shes now a gimped new mexico thats fatter at tier 7 with 356's and will get citadelled from the front by most BB's she meets, not too mention penned by most cruisers at that tier via HE.

Yeah shes more accurate but bloody hell leave one of muh waifus alone :/

 

Also why does agir even still exist at this point.

Suprised odin hasn't gone on sale yet.

 

champagne changes are interesting was she really that good? she seems like the ship that punishes border humpers not those who play aggressive (where her 25mm armour means she gets rekt by pretty much most if not all bb's at her tier bracket besides some tier 7's and 6's.)
