Buffs 'n' Nerfs to Commander Sansonetti and Test Ships Mainz, Gorizia, British Cruisers


Italian unique historical commander Luigi Sansonetti: *BUFF*

The "Scorched by Fury" talent is changed. It will be triggered upon obtaining the Confederate achievement rather than High Caliber, and will increase the reload speed from:  5% to 15%.

The trigger for the talent was changed because the High Calibre achievement was easier to get in Ranked Battles than in Random Battles (due to smaller size of teams in Ranked Battles). The Improved reload speed brings Sansonetti in balance with other unique commanders.

GORIZIA Tier VII Italian Cruiser: *BUFF*
* Reload time of Exhaust Smoke Generator is lowered from 240 (180) to 210 (140) s;
* Parameters of Hydroacoustic Search are changed:
** Action time increased from 100 to 120 s;
** Torpedo detection range increased from 3.5 to 4 km;
** Ship detection range increased from 5 to 6 km.

Changes to consumables will make Gorizia more interesting to play and will highlight her main difference to the researchable Italian cruisers - Hydroacoustic search, compensating the lack of torpedoes.

MAINZ Tier VIII German Cruiser: *BUFF*
* * Increased the armour thickness of main battery turrets:
** Frontal armour plate from 30 to 80 mm.
** Upper armour plate from 20 to 32 mm.
** Side armour plates from 20 to 35 mm.
The armour of this cruiser's turrets will become the same as that of Nürnberg. This will noticeably improve the survivability of her main calibre turrets.

* Air resistance coefficient was decreased for armour piercing and high explosive shells from    0.3307 to 0.29;
* Krupp value for armour piercing shells was increased from 1852 to 2300.
The changes to Mainz's shells will increase their flight speed (making shooting manoeuvring targets easier), and will increase penetration of armour piercing shells.
