ST 0.9.5.1, changes to test ships

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

IV Rhein, VI Weser, VIII August von Parseval, X Manfred von Richthofen:

  •     Increased accuracy of secondary battery: it's now similar in parameters to the Massachusetts.

 

Changed characteristics of attack aircraft for IV Rhein, VI Weser, VIII August von Parseval, X Manfred von Richthofen, VI Erich Loewenhardt:

  •     The height of attack was increased;
  •     Accelerated alignment of the sight;
  •     Shortened preparation time for an attack:
    •         Tier IV from 5 to 4 s;
    •         Tier VI from 6 to 3 s;
    •         Tier VIII from 4 to 2.5 s;
    •         Tier X from 4 to 2.5 s;
  •     Guaranteed ricochet angle for rockets increased from 60 to 70 degrees;
  •     Rocket damage increased:
    •         Rhein and Weser from 1,600 to 1,700;
    •         August von Parseval and Erich Loewenhardt from 2,150 to 2,350;
    •         Manfred von Richthofen from 2,800 to 3,100.

 

IX Ludendorff:

  •     Sigma parameter reduced from 1.8 to 1.6;
  •     Main battery gun reload time increased from 32 to 33 s.

 

X Slava:

  •     Main battery gun reload time increased from 32 to 33.5 s;
  •     Characteristics of the shells have been changed:
    •         AP shell damage has been reduced from 13,450 to 12,100;
    •         Ballistics and armor penetration have not changed.

 

X Franklin D. Roosevelt

The characteristics of the attack aircraft have been changed:

  •     The height of flight was increased;
  •     Rocket flight time has been increased;
  •     The attack time was reduced from 7 to 5 s;
  •     The delay between rocket launches has been reduced: the attacking flight now fires all the rockets almost simultaneously.
  •     The shape of the sight has been changed: now the ellipse is horizontal.

 

The old concept of the Roosevelt attack aircraft, which included an elongated vertical elliptical sight and sequential missile drops, proved to be ineffective against most targets. Therefore, we changed the attack mechanics and the shape of the sight of the aircraft carrier attack aircraft to make them more comfortable to use. However, the extended flight time of the missiles to the target, as well as the long distance between the squadron and their sight, which requires attack aircrafts to start an attack at a considerable range from the target, will not allow Roosevelt to become excessively effective against destroyers.

Really?

If this were US 406mm guns, I could understand that, but with Bismarck guns?

Yeah, surprising... I wonder if this is a precursor to some other sort of buff in another department because the ship really doesn't look like an overperformer on paper.

Ludendorff  sigma nerf only brings its main guns in line with Alsace. Still should be strong with its torps, secondaries and hydro.

Next nerf will be fun.

 

Slava is probably in the right direction.

It is not, WG is still keeping stupid concept and these changes could only make here better fit in their stupid spreadshit projections but as long as they don't change whole concept Slava will be horrible idea.

I agree, that’s why I say that making it weaker is a step in the right direction.
The battleship sniper remains a terrible concept.

Shouldn't it be Pommern, not Ludendorff?

Slava is probably in the right direction.

Alsace has

  • 32s reload
  • 11900 Alpha instead of 11600
  • around 8% more penetration
  • and most importantly 33% more guns at the front

At the current state Slava will be one of the most OP ships on the hands of a good player and a trashy ship on the hands of a bad player.

But Pommern is still not that far behind Alsace in terms of firepower when you consider Pommerns defensive strengths, Alsace should have the better guns because it doesn't have the armor of FDG nor the HP nor hydro, etc.

You are both right of course but have you forgotten that hydro makes you nigh on impervious to torpedoes?

 

At least, that’s what it does to the Odin.

Another Smolensk. Stupid ship balanced by players who have no idea how to play it. Nothing to see here, stats say it is ok, tovarich

Makes an already uninteresting ship only more uninteresting.

Odin is a nimbler hull than a FdG. And speed boost is not bad as a consumable either, even for just avoiding torps.

But he is referring to the change to Pommerns 380mm guns.

Ludendorff is now even less interesting. I'm not a fan of such shotguns.

 

Slava is still a idiotic idea, it'll not improve the random matches, but only make it worse.

@Miragetank90 Yer waifu got buffed again. :fish_happy: (mostly).

 

I saw, but remember how I was hoarding coal, just in case?

 

I yeeted it on Yoshino :Smile_trollface:

Worth it though. I like Azuma, so I like her a lot. And the alternate camo is sexy.

 

Ofc, Azuma is also Yoshino's captain :Smile-_tongue:
