TY, WoWS for offering some information on upcoming WoWS doings.

From my perspective - some good & some bad news.

The 'bad' news - the graphics of the ships for this new proposed 15 vs 15 player battle mode. Please, no more weird, unnatural art, please.

                           - that Ita BBs will have some types of smaller caliber guns?  I would prefer the guns the Italians actually used - not some WG fantasy alteration.

The 'good' news - that WoWS will try a 15 vs 15 player battle mode. The more players the better.

                             - that WoWS will try a much larger map mode. The bigger the map the better especially for the higher tier ships.

                            - that Ita BBs are incoming (eventually). No need for delay. Get them here tomorrow.

                            - that subs will have a second test period. Since WG wants Subs in the game then let's see Subs asap & lets see more 'sinkings' begin.

I'm neutral in regards to Ranked changes (as i do not play it much) and the idea of smoke for Ita BBs (although this idea seems to be not that good of an idea)

15 vs 15? I thought it was 15 in total...especially since "only 4 players can leave the portal" does not make much sense with teams of 15

 16x 381mm SAP, what could possibly go wrong :cap_fainting:

I think I watched & listened correctly - I think they are coupling a bigger map with more players per side & some ability for some players to reach a 'portal' - it's a new idea they say is coming.

You haven't listened correctly; they said the the Italian BBs will have tier for tier, when compared to other BBs, smaller caliber guns. Cristoforo Colombo has 16*381mm guns, the same exact guns mounted on Roma (or should i say Impero since it's the one that was tested with SAP and smoke)

WG will use italian guns, just in different turrets.

 

Btw. there is already feedback thread for this...

When did WG ever not put made up ships into this game? I'm sure the Italians had some blueprints for BBs they never built. I prefer, if possible, that historical guns be used (is all I'm saying).

I just hope that the SAP alpha is lower than the AP alpha, as that is what ruins the cruisers, we don't need a new BB line like the RN ones, only instead of max range HE spam this will be SAP spam. Hopefully WG don't ruin this line like they did with the cruisers... Duca D'Aosta still the best and most fun Italian cruiser.

It will be even harder to carry to win. I don't like it personally unless there will be 4 man divs allowed.

My thread here is for the Waterline news release not Ita guns per se. I was just giving my opinion on what little the Waterline news release says. Maybe you could comment on the whole news release yourself should you deign to do so.

that will be better.

And perhaps that will improve the MM, less time in the queue, perhaps that will give WG some room to spare to try to improve MM.

What would be better? It's a 16 man free for all....most likely with divs.

Pardon me, I had no idea EURL guy had posted just 4 hours ago. I simply watched the Waterline news release & did not see any reference to it in General Discussion so I started my thread here to express my opinions.

It is an Halloween special, it is only 16 players and "only 4 ships could exit portal" could suggest 4 teams with 4 players fighting each others.

Italian battleship Impero, Tier VIII:

Maximum SAP shell damage - 14,050. SAP

Id assume the 381mm guns all get the same maxdamage... yeah imagine 16 of those against anything :cap_fainting:

I'd assume, just assume, that  the Tier 9 has 12 guns, because V.Veneto has 9 and C. Colombo has 16

ofc, maybe that was a bit misleading. Impero should get the 9 guns Roma has, while they showed the 4x4 TX BB in the video. And id just guess it gets the same damage because same guns?

they also showed Andread Doria (10*320mm guns, same as G.Cesare) and V.Veneto, which has the same guns of Impero (3x3, same as Roma, but with SAP and 33s reload), and i think it's going to stick with the same guns for Tier 9 and 10; imo adding one more turret for the Tier 9 (4x3) and them adding one gun to each turret for the Tier 10 (4x4).

I'm thinking the same. Going from 9 guns to 16 would be a little to extreme.
