The Engine Boost Modification 1 upgrade is now available on French battleships flag_France.pngnormal.pngVIII Gascogne, flag_France.pngnormal.pngVIII Richelieu, flag_France.pngnormal.pngIX Alsace and flag_France.pngnormal.pngX République.

 

WHY?!

 

Wasn't it stated multiple times that SpoodBeest Mod is a cruiser and DD special? Good enough that BBs got SpoodBeest itself, they don't need the modification.

 

And yes, @MrConway @Tuccy @Crysantos in this situation I see it perfectly fair that my Missouri finally gets the ability to mount the Radar Mod, why isn't that a thing? :fish_palm:

 

 

Edit: Hydro mod on German BBs? Same thing, isn't it?

Hheh, it's the "National Flavor"-thingy I guess. Although I had been hoping they would have been a bit more creative and done that through buffed Captain skills or some such instead of giving the ships themselves magical qualities. I mean everyone knows that all Germans are born with an in-built Hydro and the unavoidable  tendency to go sub-nautical when confronted with even slightest bodies of water right?:Smile_teethhappy:

Hey TTT, have you guys read the (new) clan rules linked in the patchnotes? :Smile_teethhappy:

 

Quote

10. Full and abbreviated clan names, tags and descriptions must not:

  • 10.1. Be implicitly or explicitly connected to any organizations, historical or political representatives, including those convicted of crimes against mankind, that thus cause negative reaction of considerable number of people, or to any representatives or names of terrorist organizations, including currently operating ones. Violation example: Nazi attributes, abbreviations or symbols of any kind, e.g. “SS”, as well as names, last names or initials of Nazi representatives.

 

Quote

This phrase originated during the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor, and was popularized in the U.S. by the movie of the same name.

It was sent by Mitsuo Fuchida, the leader of the first wave of Japanese fighters, to his superiors on the aircraft carrier Akagi. The word tora (虎) means "tiger" in Japanese, but in this case is an abbreviated radio codeword, an acronym for totsugeki raigeki (突撃雷撃), literally meaning "lightning attack," indicating to his superiors that the objective of complete surprise had been achieved.

 

You boys (and girls if there are any) in trouble :Smile_trollface:

They were actually intended to have access to this all along, but we unfortunately forgot to enable it for the ships when they were implemented.

 

It provides an interesting choice due to their already very high speed, but at the cost of a potential Damage Control System Modification. I probably would not slot it.

Aaahhaaah!:Smile_great: That explains a bit. I recently got chased around the entire map in my Mogami by a particularly agitated and relentless Alsace and seemed quite unable to shake him off at first despite of having a speed flag on. Perhaps this is what happened then. :cap_old:

Wait wasn't that upgrade kind of low on the impact it has on the ships or did you guys fix that in the meantime?

 

Reduces the risk of flooding or fire:

  • -3% to the risk of flooding and damage received when torpedoes hit the torpedo protection.
  • -5% to the risk of fire.

Is that still -3/5% reduction of the already low chance of a fire/flood (as in 5% of 14% chance to getting set on fire) or are these values actually added as whole percentage to the flood/fire protection of said ship? (fire resilliance for said ship= 14% so +5%=19%?)

If it is still the first one I would pick the other modules (or in this case the special speedboost) any day like i am doing right now.

Not sure about flooding, fire is multiplicative.

 

10% fire chance and -5% risk of fire would be

 

10% * 0.95 = 9.5% fire chance

 

So yeah, pretty low impact

How is a modification for a miserable +8% speed boost even remotely comparable to radar and hydro mods?

It gives +50% duration to the speed boost, not extra speed.

I know. I meant a mod for increased duration for a useless +8% speed consumable isn't remotely comparable to the mods that increase radar and hydro duration.

Most of the time, the benefit of the consumable isn't the extra speed, but the significantly increased acceleration.

May I also recommend a citadel-vine with a cruiser like "full body" to go along and down this already p2w-rich and OP-BB-fat meal? :Smile_hiding::Smile_trollface::fish_viking:

Go play a radar cruiser then...
Missouri has already proven to be "less than enjoyable" for it`s supposed counters (i.e. DD`s) even though it has no acess to RM1. Not to mention there was a reason why it was removed from the techtree.

As somebody who believes the Missouri already outclasses all other tier 9 BBs to the point of uselessness... I would certainly rather not see it get any better...
