PTS 0.8.8 Round 2: World of Warships Birthday Rewards for All, New Port, and Map Changes


WG fixed bugs from the previous session and improved the sounds and visuals of the game. Besides that, the Epicentre game mode is updated – now the battles won't end as quickly. Join the public test and check out the new sounds, updated maps for the new lighting model, and the new "Designer's table" port!

PUBLIC TEST SERVER 0.8.8 ROUND 2

Countdown Countdown

Changelog:

  • The volume level of ship engines is adjusted. Moreover, now setting the "Engines sound" setting to 20% or lower will stop the low-frequency engines sound from playing;
  • Adjusted the ambient volume and its level in ports;
  • Clan battles have a limit to prevent unsportsmanlike behaviour: if the battle went for less than 4.5 minutes, then players of both teams won't get experience and credits. In the case of Clan Brawls – since the format is smaller in 0.8.8 – experience and credits will be awarded only if the battle lasted for at least 3 minutes;
  • The number of points credited for controlling the outer ring, inner ring and centre in Epicentre mode is changed from 3/5/7 points respectively per 5 seconds to 5 points per 5 seconds for all three rings. The size of the areas in Epicentre is increased on the Islands of Ice map. Also, Epicentre without local weather is added as a variant of this map. These changes will increase the average duration of battles in this mode.
  • Updated the colour of camouflage icons when an alternative colour scheme is chosen.

Fixed bugs:

  • Fixed several issues with the visuals of Crash Zone Alpha, North, and Fault Line maps;
  • Fixed a bug which caused the speed telegraph to switch to Stop after setting the autopilot course for the first time in battle;
  • Fixed a bug which stopped voice notifications from playing in operations;
  • Fixed a bug which caused incorrect working of the combat missions carousel filter;
  • Fixed a bug which caused the view distance of Montana, Saint-Louis, Yoshino and New York to be lower than their firing range;
  • Fixed an issue with incorrect display of the event banner in port.
