Balance Changes

Balance Changes and 0.8.11 Public Test Latest News

In version 0.8.11 the following balance changes will be made:

Japanese aircraft carrier Hosho, Tier IV:
* Changed torpedo aiming parameters.
Previously, Hosho torpedo bombers maintained narrow aiming cones whilst performing manoeuvres, making accurate aiming much easier. Now the possible angle of torpedo drop is increased during manoeuvres. This change will reduce the efficiency of the Hosho as well as restore the Japanese flavor of the Hosho's torpedo bombers.

American aircraft carrier Midway, Tier X:
* Torpedoes changed:
** Maximum damage increased from 4,233 to 5,067;
** Flooding chance increased from 33% to 42%.
After recent changes, Midway was slightly weaker compared to other ships. The increased damage will increase the efficiency of torpedo bombers , and Midway itself will become more competitive.

American cruiser Salem, Tier X:
* Action time of the "Surveillance Radar" consumable increased from 25 to 40 s.
This change will increase the efficiency of Salem in combat and help her to better deal with destroyers and control key positions on the map.

German battleships:
* Ellipse of main caliber gun shells dispersion is adjusted to the settings of the American and British battleships.
This change will increase the accuracy of all German battleships and make the playing experience more comfortable.

Change to upgrades:
* "Hydroacoustic Search Modification 1" can now be mounted on any ship starting from Tier VI, equipped with "Hydroacoustic Search" consumable.
Now this modification can be mounted on German battleships.

British cruiser Hawkins, Tier V:
* Detectability range by air increased from 6.36 to 6.44 km
In some cases, Hawkins' detectability range by air was less than its AA defense action zone, so it was increased.
