Hi guys, 

 

Was playing Fletcher and already thought something was different about her.

Then on in our Clan a Clanmember came up with this page on Reddit where they prove the angles are now different.

Not sure if WG knows that they nerfed her, and if they do now, they just nerf ships without giving the information..

Coudn't find another topic about this so posting this here.

Thanks, 

 

Seems like a aa mount is the issue i've read on Reddit.

 

It is most likely unintended result of Hull changes on Fletcher.

Can you please specify, what exact issue is there with AA mount?

Could be also an issue on the Kidd and Chung Mu, but haven't checked that.

Seems the hullchange doesn't let you shoot through that Bofor aa mount.

The other Fletcher variants were not changed in the last update, so they are still the same ...

Chung Mu and Kidd hulls were not changed. But it really seems to be that, as new AA mounts are blocking the spread.

Still nothing confirmed from devs yet.

Yes, we are still running plenty of tests.

Ho it is possbile for such big company to accidently nerf ship and do not catch that during the test?

This definitely wasn't intended, as those narrower torpedo angles are unintended result of mounting the new AA mounts, that now those torps obviously can't go through those mounts.

As I mentioned before, we are waiting for the information from devs, if it was intended, but unfortunately not communicated, or this wasn't meant to happen at all.

Hi @Hugh_Ruka,

 

Wasn't aware of your thread, sorry for that.

Thanks for the clarification both you and @YabbaCoe.

In Excel ? Because this was obvious after I first saw somebody playing Fletcher on stream after the patch. Also the data must have been CHANGED by somebody intentionally when they were building the model and noticed the interference with the mount yet it was not noted anywhere ? This was a deliberate action, not an unintended consequence.

Who said they need to actually play the game to test it :D

Man, I played one game exactly yesterday and thought "hmm, didn't remember these angles". Glad to know that I am not going insane.

Commanders!

 

There was a collision bug with one of Fletcher’s torpedo launchers. When we were updating stock ship hulls in 0.10.3 we’ve also fixed the torpedo angles for the ship.

Regrettably, due to a human mistake, the change was not reflected in patchnotes.

We have no intention to hide any changes from you, and we’re sorry for the situation – the change will be added to the patchnotes.

As for the effect this change may have on Fletcher – we will see what will happen with ship’s efficiency and will take actions if it will be necessary for the destroyer.

 

We would like to appologize for the inconvenience caused by this.

Ah so it was a bug from the start and it was corrected in this patch. Ok, I can take that as long as it is properly documented. It looked like a silent nerf.

 

Thanks for finding out and explaining.

So basically WG gave her an accidental nerf and all the come up with is the usual BS line "we will see what will happen with ship’s efficiency and will take actions if it will be necessary for the destroyer", unacceptable, you have dramatically changed the ships torp efficiency, oh but we forget the all mighty spreadsheet, WG screwing Fletcher owners, plain and simple !
