World of Warships Balance Changes: Vanguard British Tier VIII Battleship

Balance Changes: Vanguard British Tier VIII Battleship

  • Consumable Changed: "Repair Team" Cooldown: decreased from 80 (120) to 60 (90) seconds
  • Recovery Efficiency: Increased from 0.5 to 0.6 % per second
  • The citadel size has been reduced
  • The rudder shift time has been reduced from 16.2 to 9.72 seconds
  • The AP shell detonation time has been increased from 0.015 to 0.033 seconds
  • The detection range has been increased from 14.76 to 16.04 km
  • The visibility after firing MGs in smoke has been increased from 13.51 to 14.73 km
According to the test results, this battleship was too vulnerable to the AP shells of enemy battleships. Improvement of shells, reducing the size of the citadel and the acceleration of the rudder shift time will allow Vanguard to live longer and manoeuvre better under fire. At the same time a faster rudder shift compensates for the uncomfortable MG firing angles.

AP shells of the battleship often exploded without reaching the citadel of the target during the test. With the new fuse timings, AP shells will detonate more often in the citadel of targets, however, the number of overpenetrations will also increase.

IMPORTANT! Because these changes 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 changes are made.
