Don't think there was anything on the WoWs portal, though someone digged out a rough outline from their Facebook page:

 

French BBs

US CL line split

RN DDs

 

Those where the major bullet points if I remember correctly.

 

I'm sure someone will link it, I'm too lazy for that right now.

They had some form of presentation during an event in which they detailed some plans for the year.

That presentation is apparently the reason why will not get an article on the portal this year.

3 lines...that's not much for a whole year, or better said 2 1/2 lines because the US split is not a full new line

And they said they want to finish the split IJN DD line sometime and I don't think it is too hard to make 2 DDs.

Iirc the demand for the Akizuki was quite low among the playerbase (as was the whole new branch of the IJN DDs) and as such they said, no more split action after the USN CL/CA split. So I assume: on hold until further notice.

Shiratsuyu without smoke and Akizuki after stealth fire nerf are not so much fun to play anymore.

It's all up to make ships interesting...

Beg to differ, Akizuki is as much fun to drive as my Minotaur (although I never had her when stealth firing was available so cannot compare).

What gives you this idea? The damage system is broken for so long now and apart from the occasional BSing we havent seen any progress there yet.

 

They should be aware of it for 4 years now.

They have been told - with proof - for 3 years by now.

They are "aware and working on it" for 2 years now.

They are "aware and working on it high priority" for 1 year now.

 

Is there some secret to numerology that in the year #5 things will actually get fixed?

 

 

Btw, another example of the broken [edited]damage system to follow:

 

Ingame the bot angled in sharply and increased speed thus my salvo went rather long instead of midships and against his slim silhouette at a sharp angle instead of his boiler room -> One shell hits the stern and it bounces off ....... no damage ......... well except:

 

cfbolVV.png

 

The actual Edited

 

So now even bouncing AP shells can do (module)damage - thats new! 

I know it was my only salvo against that cruiser at the bot got "fun and engaged" by BB AP afterwards.

So knowing WG, I bet at least half of the shitty BB AP citadels on angled cruiser is AP bouncing of their citadels ...... and ofc still scoring a citadel ......... I wouldnt be surprised.

Akizuki is great. She is a DD killer, completely annihilates enemy DDs when she gets in close. The only DDs she loses against would be higher-tier DDs with enough armour to block her IFHE-buffed HE.

 

Don't have an opinion on Shiratsuyu, as the last time I played her would be during the 6th Ranked battles season.

She is slow, slugish dont turn and has one torps. Maby it is good against dds, bu total crap against bbs, CA and CV

and yet she has a global win rate of 52% - so she works for a fair chunk of people who drive her

(stat from warships today).

Have to say that while DD's are her primary targets, other than the Russian gun boat types she fares at least as well as any other DD against the other ship classes.

Yes, she only has 1 set of torps, but with reload booster at least has 3 'full' broadsides. But she isn't a torp boat :)

You're right, and I felt the same way several months ago, but those torpedoes are still good, better than the single launcher on the Kidd. She also gets the TRB in a separate slot to smoke, allowing you to panic-fire when you need them. I have my Akizuki equipped with the Engine Boost mod, allowing her to go 35-36knt for a full three minutes, which is always handy.

She is not one you should play like either IJN or USN DD - rather than scout ahead, you need to be in positions where your team can support you, rather than smoke up and spam at the nearest BB, you need to keep moving and screen your team against enemy DDs. Don't forget she does have the most health of all T8 DDs, so if you play smart you can outlast all of them. She still has DD-like rudder shift, so you can kite enemy fire with relative ease.

Aki is most OP DD in the game (if you have IFHE). It has best DpM from all DD (t10 included) and can kill any DD (t10 included) in 1vs1. I like to hunt enemy Gearings and other to confident DD  with this beauty.

And Yes she is slow and sliiiiightly sluggish on the turn but "Well, nobody's perfect.":cap_cool:

 

On the topic:

And is there any info about GZ release in 2018?

You're so wrong. It's main armament is the guns, not the torps.
