World of Warships Devs: French Destroyer Le Terrible and Battleship Jean Bart Nerfs and Buffs

French Destroyer Le Terrible and Battleship Jean Bart

According to the test results, the destroyer Le Terrible appears to be lagging behind other destroyers at Tier VIII. The following balance changes increase its combat effectiveness and improve balance.
  • The recharge time of the main battery guns is reduced from 7 to 6 seconds;
  • The firing range of the guns has been increased from 11.24 to 12.27 km;
  • Turret rotation speed is increased from 7 to 10 degrees per second;
  • The firing angles of the turrets have been improved, most noticeably on the fifth turret;
The recharge time of Torpedos is reduced from 90 to 77 seconds;
New torpedoes are installed, which are inferior in range to those before, but have better speed and maximum damage:
  • Maximum damage: 18,400;
  • Range: 8 km;
  • Visibility: 1.4 km;
  • Speed: 65 knots.
The destroyer has had "Smoke Generator" removed in order to emphasize its role as a ship with a high speed.

The French battleship Jean Bart conversely shows slightly increased efficiency in combat due to a combination of relatively fast reload of the main guns, the availability of Main Battery Reload Booster and good Sigma. 
  • Sigma is reduced from 2.0 to 1.9 to improve her balance.

IMPORTANT! Because the ships are still being tested, the information in this Article is tentative and reflects the state of game development at the time of its publication. Changes and new features may be removed entirely or implemented differently by the time the Update goes live. Screenshots, specific values of certain characteristics, and details of in-game mechanics will not necessarily be relevant after the ships are released.
