Updates to unique upgrades

 

In 0.9.5, we're starting the process of updating the unique upgrades. The current concept provides an additional opportunity to mount an upgrade with special-but-balanced bonuses in comparison to regular upgrades.

These changes will balance the effectiveness of unique upgrades, and at the same time preserve the unique gameplay of each ship. You can view the detailed list of changes in the game client, Development Blog, and the article about Update 0.9.5.


 

Soviet cruiser branch split

Due to the Soviet cruiser branch being split into two sub-branches, the following changes will be introduced: heavy cruiser flag_Russia_6ce701e1c2f2ac3909a68a0a7b23standard_874a3bdc3134b8da4fd6f52186f1b2bX Moskva will leave the light cruiser branch and acquire the status of being a special ship that's available in exchange for Coal. She'll be replaced by light cruiser flag_Russia_6ce701e1c2f2ac3909a68a0a7b23standard_874a3bdc3134b8da4fd6f52186f1b2bX Alexander Nevsky. flag_Russia_6ce701e1c2f2ac3909a68a0a7b23standard_874a3bdc3134b8da4fd6f52186f1b2bV Kirov will also leave the branch to become a Premium ship. She'll be replaced by flag_Russia_6ce701e1c2f2ac3909a68a0a7b23standard_874a3bdc3134b8da4fd6f52186f1b2bV Kotovsky.

  • Cruiser flag_Russia_6ce701e1c2f2ac3909a68a0a7b23standard_874a3bdc3134b8da4fd6f52186f1b2bX Moskva will acquire the status of a special ship. This means that the base cost of the post-battle service of this ship will be reduced from 180,000 to 90,000 credits, and Commanders from other ships of the same nation can be assigned to her without any penalties and retraining requirements.
  • If you've already researched cruiser flag_Russia_6ce701e1c2f2ac3909a68a0a7b23standard_874a3bdc3134b8da4fd6f52186f1b2bX Moskva, but haven't yet purchased her; or if you sold her; or if the branch has been reset, you'll receive this cruiser.
  • If your progress in the Soviet cruiser branch has been reset, the Research Point bonus will be transferred to flag_Russia_6ce701e1c2f2ac3909a68a0a7b23standard_874a3bdc3134b8da4fd6f52186f1b2bX Alexander Nevsky.
  • The unique upgrade and combat mission for cruiser flag_Russia_6ce701e1c2f2ac3909a68a0a7b23standard_874a3bdc3134b8da4fd6f52186f1b2bX Moskva, as well as any permanent camouflages you purchased, will be preserved. If the Type 20 permanent camouflage hasn't yet been purchased, it will be added.
  • The Commander of cruiser flag_Russia_6ce701e1c2f2ac3909a68a0a7b23standard_874a3bdc3134b8da4fd6f52186f1b2bX Moskva will preserve his specialization.
  • Cruiser flag_Russia_6ce701e1c2f2ac3909a68a0a7b23standard_874a3bdc3134b8da4fd6f52186f1b2bX Alexander Nevsky can be obtained only after she has been researched and purchased in the Tech Tree.
  • The same rules apply to cruisers flag_Russia_6ce701e1c2f2ac3909a68a0a7b23standard_874a3bdc3134b8da4fd6f52186f1b2bV Kirov and flag_Russia_6ce701e1c2f2ac3909a68a0a7b23standard_874a3bdc3134b8da4fd6f52186f1b2bV Kotovsky.

  • Riposte
  • Operations maps: Killer Whale, Defense of Naval Station Newport, Raptor Rescue, Narai

I purchased the permanent camo for 20€ and now everybody who has researched the Moskva will get it for free. And to compensate this I will receive ... nothing :Smile_sceptic:

 

I cant imagine purchasing a perma camo ever again. This just dont feel right.

I have the elite module for midway but i have no idea if its active or how to equip it. This UI is not telling me if it's active or not.

Des Moines UU "Enhanced Propulsion" increases the maximum reverse speed by nearly 40%. Why isn't this mentioned in the description or is it just a bug?

It shouldn't be the case, atleast it wasn't mentioned anywhere. I also made a test with Des Moines in training room with and without this UU and reverse speed is the same. Are you sure, that Des Moines is reversing faster after equiping this UU?
