Henri IV balance change

A few weeks ago there was a mention of a slight buff to Henri's acceleration being tested on the PTS.

After Wargaming killed the ship with the huge acceleration nerf before I was looking forward to this little buff. But I didn't see any mention of it in the patch note for 0.9.5, while all other balance changes went through.

Did anyone hear about that? Did WG decide to let Henri rest in peace in his grave? If it's the case it's really bad decision imo.

 

Edit: the balance change is now in the patch note.

It's not in the 9,5 patch notes if that's what you were hoping.

Or never, there's no guarantee that it will happen after all.

It's how these games work : nerf, buff, nerf etc to ensure you keep on grinding /paying for the next OP thing

Except that they didn’t. Funny how HIV didn’t have a problem being played before the idea of “throttledodging” became a thing. Guess what - you can still play exactly like that, and have just as great results.

How so? I played Henri before and after the nerf, and I can't have great results as you say anymore. It is now nearly impossible to "throttledodge" efficiently. I was able to dodge way more in the past. While you could try going mid range previously now it's impossible as going a little bit closer than max range is a death sentence with acceleration the like of battleships. The nerf might have been deserved, but such a big one, no. Which is why I hope they would reduce it.

You don't need it for great results.

How should I play Henri now? I'm genuinely asking. Do you still play long range while dodging like before?

You’re still trying this and then you say:

Oh really :jebaited: You don’t say

It’s literally as simple as DON’T ATTEMPT THROTTLEDODGING and you’ll be perfectly fine, just like BEFORE it was a thing :fish_palm:

 

I swear, some people... :fish_palm:

Just play it like any other open water cruiser.

 

I'm not the super-mega-unicum, but I have been doing fine without abusing it:

You need to open these things.

WG is now even hiding the new additions to the Armory there.

I guess the average player will lose interest if the text is too long...

I did, I could swear it was not in the balance change section yesterday. I indeed mentioned that other balance changes went through as expected, but not Henri's, hence that post. Anyway, let's see how this "slight" change really affects her handling.

Make sure you equip propulsion mod at least.
