World of Warships: Development Changes: Neustrashimy, Leone, Azuma

Devs Changes: Neustrashimy, Leone, Azuma.


Neustrashimy Soviet Tier IX Destroyer.
Changed the parameters of the "Repair party" consumable: 
  • Healing is reduced from 2% to 1.5% of maximum hit points per second.
The concept of a destroyer with an improved "Repair party", which can restore a large number of hit points, has proven itself well and has allowed Neustrashimy to survive clashes with the enemy and have the ability to return to active combat later in the battle. However, to balance Neustrashimy with other destroyers, we needed to reduce the efficiency of this consumable.


Leone Tier VI Italian Destroyer.
Changed the parameters of the "Smoke Generator" consumable: 
  • The number of charges is reduced from 2 (3) to 1 (2);
A large number of Smoke Generator charges make a destroyer very forgiving of mistakes. Given her long emission and duration time, Leone was very effective at her tier. Now, with the wrong positioning and inappropriate activation of the consumable, the destroyer can more easily end up without charges at the end of the battle and, as a result, will be less effective.


Azuma Tier IV Japanese Cruiser.
The original concept of this cruiser thrived in long distance engagements, taking into account the features of her armor and her good accuracy. However, testing showed that such an idea severely limited the player tactically and reduced their impact on the battle. In the new version, Azuma is less accurate, but at the same time she has received a number of improvements that allow the ship to be effective not only at the maximum range.
Improved the "Repair party" consumable:
  • The number of charges increased from 2 (3) to 3 (4).
  • Cooldown has been reduced from 120 (80) to 60 (40).
Added the "Hydroacoustic Search" consumable:
  • Duration: 100 s;
  • Ship detection range: 5 km;
  • Torpedo detection range: 3.5 km;
  • Cooldown: 180 s (120 s);
  • Charges: 2 (3).
The accuracy of this cruiser returned to its previous level due to excessive efficiency. At the same time, the parameters will still be better than those of similar tier IX cruisers (Kronstadt and Alaska) at short and medium distances.
To increase the survivability of the cruiser, we improved the "Repair party" consumable. With a short cooldown and a large number of charges, the cruiser will be able to stay longer in active battle.

The "Hydroacoustic Search" consumable returned to the ship, and its parameters correspond to the standard for cruisers at tier IX. Its presence will allow the ship to feel safer in close combat, although the characteristics of the cruiser do not imply effective participation in the battle at short distances due to the peculiarities of the armor and a long reload of the Main Battery.

Also, Azuma will have her anti-aircraft weapons updated. We will share the details, but a little later.
