Yes they really butchered this ship... :Smile_sceptic:

MAN ANY NERF TO THUNDERER IS A WELCOME THING, ITS SHOWS WG DOES CARE ABOUT BALANCE(even if its just a tiny bit)

This shows that special ships aren't immune to balance and this means we could hope for future nerfs too

Thems is good changes, as far as I can tell, even if they are quite modest.

 

The only concern is that, if the level of objections isn't excessive, WG might take that to mean that they also have carte blanche to mess with for-money premiums; whilst some need it (we all know which ones), there is the question of whether we trust WG to avoid dropping into a lucrative cycle of releasing OP premiums to rake in the cash, followed by nerfing them, and then repeating the process...

at least thunderer players need to get closer to play the game not just put on range mod and snipe from 28,18km also this will make it a little bit easier to escape thunderer's bs firepower

a 1.3km nerf to the thunderer range is a laughable attempt at balancing it, praising them for it is not helpful. The main issue with the thunderer is not solved by nerfing its range by 1300m down to 23km...

 

What it actually shows it WG dont have a clue what they are doing, as usual.

We don't have precedent for whether the Dev Blog is used for wind-ups (it's still fairly new), but - to my eyes - the rest of the Dev Blog looks fairly normal: https://blog.worldofwarships.com/blog/135

 

(I'm not good at spotting things in stats though.)

Of course, because reducing CV aircraft by 1 would balance them.

It's not about the quality of the nerf to the thunderer, ITS about the fact that special ships aren't immune to nerfs

I'm going to say April fool's and good job trolling yourselves, WG.

 

On a more serious note, though. It's not funny or fair to all the good Thunderer folk out there.  Do you know how hard - and how DANGEROUS - it is to play 23 km from the reds? Do you? DO YOU?!

I suspect WG may deliberately be being cautious here: I hypothesise that this is more about testing the fact of a nerf to an event ship (which I don't believe they've done before), and to see a) if the reaction is as vehement as when they proposed nerfing/changing GC, and b) if people distinguish between event ships and 'proper' premiums in their reactions.

 

So, I suggest that the nerfs haven't gone 'Full YY' as the mere fact of their existence is sufficient to trigger the data that WG are after...

I think a truely fantastic April fools joke would be that the joke is hidden in the dev blog.

 

It’s not a range decrease by 1,3km but in fact by 13km :Smile_trollface:

Interesting. I do indeed suspect they are testing the ice here, gauging player reactions, and that this might set a precedent for adjusting at least the tier 10 special ships, if not "real" premiums. Not a bad precedent in my opinion (and I say this even though I own the now, uh, almost useless Thunderer after this calamitous nerf).
