0.9.2 Buffs n Nerfs to Ships - Inertia Fuse HE Shells Penetration, Balance Changes

Buffs n Nerfs to Ships - Inertia Fuse HE Shells Penetration, Balance Changes

On the second stage of 0.9.2 Public test, we've changed the characteristics of several ships, having analysed their combat performance and taken player feedback into account. Such changes were required in order to carefully adjust the balance of selected warships. We'll continue to introduce changes in the updates that will follow, if deemed necessary.

American battleship Arkansas Beta, Tier IV:
  • The possibility to mount the "Ship Consumables Modification 1" upgrade is added.
Soviet cruiser Aurora, Tier III:
  • Turret traverse speed increased from 5.0 to 5.1 degrees per second.  
Soviet battleship Sinop, Tier VII:
  • Sigma parameter reduced from 1.55 to 1.50.
Soviet battleship Kremlin, Tier X:
  • Sigma parameter reduced from 1.85 to 1.80.
American cruiser Atlanta, Tier VII:
  • Main battery reload time reduced from 5.0 to 4.9 s.
American cruiser Flint, Tier VII:
  • Main battery reload time reduced from 5.0 to 4.9 s.
British destroyer Jutland, Tier IX:
  • Main battery reload time increased from 4.0 to 4.1 s;
  • Torpedo tubes reload time increased from 120 to 122 s.
British destroyer Daring, Tier X:
  • Main battery reload time increased from 2.5 to 2.6 s;
  • Torpedo tubes reload time increased from 120 to 122 s.
Japanese aircraft carrier Hakuryu, Tier X:
  • Attack aircraft damage reduced from 3,350 to 3,250.
American destroyer Gearing, Tier X:
  • Researchable torpedo tubes reload time reduced from 118 to 116 s.
British destroyer Valkyrie, Tier III:
  • Main battery reload time increased from 5.0 to 5.2 s;
  • Torpedo tubes reload time increased from 41 to 43 s.
British battleship Orion, Tier IV:
  • Base firing range reduced from 15.18 to 14.7 km.
Pan-Asian destroyer Hsienyang, Tier VIII:
  • Researchable torpedo tubes reload time reduced from 119 to 117 s.
Pan-Asian destroyer Chung Mu, Tier IX:
  • Torpedo tubes reload time reduced from 119 to 117 s.
Pan-Asian destroyer Yueyang, Tier X:
  • Torpedo tubes reload time reduced from 142 to 139 s.
Aircraft:
  • Spotting range of aircraft carrier squadrons, Patrol Fighters, Catapult Fighters, and Spotting Aircraft decreased from 19 to 18 km (This characteristic determines at what distance the aircraft is capable of spotting an enemy).
The "Inertia fuse for HE shells" skill is changed as follows
  • With the skill, The boost to HE shell armor penetration will be reduced from 30% to 25% for Tier VIII - X ships
Due to the fact that the rule of 1/5 of the caliber was applied when calculating HE shell armor penetration on Tier VIII - X ships with 152-155 mm caliber guns, cruisers with 152 mm guns could penetrate the 38mm plating with the 30% bonus applied, which was extremely powerful. With this change, cruisers with 152 mm guns will not be able to penetrate 38mm plating. 
The armor penetration of some Japanese ships' shells is changed as follows:
  • Armor penetration of 100mm main caliber HE shells of Akizuki, Kitakaze, Harugumo, HSF Harekaze changed from 25 to 30 mm;
  • Armor penetration of 100mm secondary armament HE shells of Ibuki, Zao, Yoshino, Azuma, Kii, Shikishima, Hakuryu changed from 25 to 30 mm.
Now the armor penetration of these shells is aligned with the new HE shell penetration of Tier VIII - X ships with 152-155 mm caliber guns, the same as before the changes.
The armor penetration of secondary armament shells of German ships:
  • Armor penetration of HE shells from the 105mm secondary armament on Yorck, Prinz Eitel Friedrich, Scharnhorst, Scharnhorst B, Gneisenau, Admiral Graf Spee, and HSF Admiral Graf Spee increased from 18 to 26 mm.
The armor penetration of these shells became the same as that of other 105mm secondary armament shells on German ships.

IMPORTANT! Because 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 finalised information is released.

Ranked Season 15 Arms Race Missions Maps Dates and Times

RANKED BATTLES 15 ARMS RACE

On the 26th of February, the 15th Ranked season will begin. Battles will be held on tier X ships, without class restrictions, in the 7 vs. 7 format. Battles will be conducted in the updated "Arms Race" mode.

RANKED BATTLES 15 ARMS RACE [EU]

Countdown Countdown
Key Rules of The Season:

* Format: 7 vs. 7 playing Tier X ships.
* Restrictions: no more than one aircraft carrier and three battleships per team. If there aren’t enough suitable ships to complete the teams, and the time the first player in the queue has waited exceeds 4 minutes and 10 seconds, then each team can be completed with up to four battleships.
* Rewards: up to 5,500 Steel, one Ranked Token, and many additional rewards.
* Mode: Arms Race.
* Maps: Trident, Warrior's Path, Sleeping Giant, Mountain Range, and Islands of Ice.

Rewards:

The League Flags reduce the cost of servicing your ships by 10% and 20% until the end of the Season.

Arms Race:
Arms Race is a battle mode in which special areas that provide buffs spawn on the map. If you can make it to a special area and activate it before your opponents do, your entire team will get a bonus to their combat abilities till the end of that battle. If you capture more than one of the same buff, the bonuses provided by them stack up.
Eight minutes after a battle starts, a Key Area appears in the center of the map. The diameter of this area then shrinks over time. The team that captures it will be able to quickly gain an advantage in points and ultimately win.

How do the areas with buffs work?

  • Each buff area activates 2 minutes after spawning.
  • When you enter one of these areas after its activation, you will receive the buff instantly.
  • If you are within a buff area together with any enemy ships at the moment of its activation, the team with the most ships within the area gets the bonus. If the ship numbers are equal, the area remains in an uncaptured state until the balance of power inside it shifts one way or another.
  • In addition to the buffs, each captured area grants victory points to your team and deducts points from the enemy team.

Which buffs are available?

Increased maximum ship speed and a faster rudder-shift time, as well as a reduced aircraft engine boost cooldown time:
  • +3% to the maximum ship speed and rudder-shift time.
  • −20% to the engine boost cooldown time of an aircraft carrier’s squadrons.
Continuous restoration of HP as a percentage of the maximum HP pool for ships or aircraft:
  • Restoring +0.03% of ship HP per second.
  • Restoring +1% of aircraft HP per second.
Faster reload time of the main battery and torpedo armament, or faster aircraft restoration time on a carrier's deck:
  • −5% to the reload time of the main battery and torpedo armament.
  • −5% to the aircraft restoration time.
Faster reload time of ship and squadron consumables:
  • −5% to the reload time of ship consumables.
  • −10% to the reload time of squadron consumables.

Visby European Tier V Destroyer Detailed Stats


Visby European Tier V Destroyer

European Flag V Visby
A further development of the "standard" destroyers of the Swedish Navy. The ship was faster than her predecessors, had a different main-gun-mount arrangement, and carried reinforced anti-aircraft armament.

european event bundles
V Visby 1st Bundle:
European Tier V destroyer
Visby is a destroyer that served in the Swedish Navy for more than 30 years. In World of Warships she represents Europe. In contrast to other ships of her type, she is capable of high speeds and has good concealment, as well as an unconventional set of consumables.
Five 120 mm guns. The main battery has a reload speed of 5.5 seconds, which is decent for its tier, but the ship's main armament is her torpedo launchers
* Two triple-tube torpedo launchers. The torpedoes have a range of 9 km, which is high for their tier, as well as a fast reload time and decent speed, but the damage they cause is significantly lower than that of other same-tier destroyers
* Her modest HP pool is compensated for by the fact that she carries the Repair Party consumable—a rare feature for destroyers
* The already decent standard speed of the ship can be temporarily increased by using the Engine Boost consumable
* In contrast to most destroyers, this ship is not equipped with the Smoke Generator consumable

The ship comes with all researchable modules. If you already have Tier V Visby, you will get compensation in the form of credits.

Östergötland European Tier IX Destroyer Detailed Stats


Östergötland European Tier IX Destroyer

European Flag European Tier IX Destroyer europe flagÖstergötland (1958)
Last of a series of destroyers of the Swedish Navy. Due to their dimensions, which were quite small for the era, they are sometimes classified as "light" destroyers. Their main artillery armament comprised very successful 120 mm automatic dual-purpose mounts.

IX Östergötland
5th bundle
European Tier IX destroyer
Östergötland is a representative of the last series of destroyers of the Swedish Navy. In World of Warships she represents Europe. The ship is notable for having very fast torpedoes with a long range and good AA defenses. She has just a few main battery guns, but they are capable of rapid fire.
* Four 120 mm guns with a very high rate of fire
* Two quadruple-tube torpedo launchers. The torpedoes are remarkable for their very high speed of 86 knots, long range of 13.5 km, and fast reload time, their downside being low damage they are capable of causing
* Good AA defenses for her type and tier. They can be additionally strengthened by activating the Defensive AA Fire consumable, placed in a separate slot
* She carries the Repair Party consumable, which is rare for a destroyer. This considerably increases the ship’s survivability
* Her speed can be temporarily increased by using the Engine Boost consumable
* In contrast to most destroyers, this ship is not equipped with the Smoke Generator consumable

The ship comes with all researchable modules. If you already have Tier IX Östergötland, you will get compensation in the form of credits.

Great White Fleet - Missions - Container - Premium Days

Great White Fleet - Missions and Bonuses

On the 16th December 1907, a fleet of ships painted a dazzling white, sailed out of the harbour of Hampton Roads, Virginia, on what would become an epic 43,000-mile glorified naval parade around the world. It involved 14,000 sailors, 20 port calls and lasted a total of 15 months - wowing the locals wherever it stopped. The fleet was made of 16 USN Battleships and because of the white paint used (instead of the traditional navy grey), it became known as the 'Great White Fleet'.
