Overall okay changes i'd say 

 

p.s. did it really took you so long to figure out that Kansas wouldn't work with 1.5 sigma?

I'm concerned about Somers tho; Revoming a steel ship is very iffy because Steel takes a long time to grind, also with ranked not being available for now.

idk tbh, which is what makes it very iffy; like if someone doesn't have much steel (and he's not in a clan, which is possible) how is he supposed to get it?

Does that mean that Austin replaces Somers as a steel ship in the armory, or does it simply mean that Somers gets removed and Austin will be available from this point w/o specifically stating what currency it will take to get her? 

 

While I do already own Somers, I'm a bit surprised if we would get yet another steel cruiser after getting Plymouth just recently. Esp. one that replaces a steel DD...

Its not specifically stated however it (in my interpretation) is heavily implied that the Austin will be for Steel

@Tanatoy can you provide more info about this, will Austin be available for steel or some other currency? Is this decided yet or it should be determined later?

Another batch of nerfs to Fen Yang... will she be another dockyard ship or what, given nerfhammer is working overtime on her?

 

in current iteration, she will be destroyer without much in the way of camo, with 33kts top speed, one torp launcher and artillery output barely better than Kagero, while requiring IFHE to make use of said HE in first place.

Austin will be for steel, however the amount of steel needed is not yet announced.

I think either a DY ship or a filler for some Chinese year loot crate event. 

 

Run the math... With the further increase to her base reload even the new ap shell damage would see her being beat in terms of dpm by a Akizuki shooting HE. Who has 30mm base pen without even speccing into IFHE and doesn't care about auto bounce angles...

Tbf, the rockets weren't exactly stellar either. Based on my humble experience with Audacious, this change seems mostly a side-grade, given that even vs T10 cruisers, the bombers often do better than the rockets and 36 rockets still hits DDs hard enough. Torp bombers as the one decent armament are untouched, but this isn't really going to make Audacious any better or worse.

AP dpm: 60/5.2*1900*8=175.4k

HE dpm: 60/5.2*1500*8=138.5k

 

In comparison:

Akizuki proper: 272k/192k

Lightning: 176k/136k

Kagero: 112.3k/109.8k

 

in meantime Lightning have massive concealment advantage, hydro, magic british handling, second fish launcher, 360 turrets and doesn't require IFHE to damage other destroyers.

 

Even using Fen Yang as torpedoboat is questionable, with only one fish dispenser and given their "very deep water" nature, you might as well go with Asashio.

Heck, HSF Harekaze beats her in both HE and AP dpm. Sure, she has less range and the increased dpm won't most likely would make up for the hp disadvantage in a 1vs1 between those two ships, but she is a torpedo boat after all. Quite telling...

Hizen Directives.

 

But yes, even that way is way too short considering its 22 directives you can buy so 4400 Steel and you have to buy then day 1 without skipping and it costs what? 18750 with discount coupon? Thats not even 1/3 of the price.

Anyone know why Somers is being removed...?

Can't be lack of popularity, she is not at the bottom when it comes to number of t10 games. 

 

So I guess it is down to performance, if you take a look at her on the WoWs numbers page, she leads most categories and the one she doesn't (except for plane kills) she scores second. And the ship that beats her is smaland... Who also gets pulled next year.
