Seems Wargaming decided to listen to player feedback and more changes are on the way. Here’s the latest update from Sub_Octavian:
Hello good folks! Thank you so much for LOTS of feedback here. As you may have noticed, we are also conducting additional production test of Alabama over weekend with our ST team. We plan to introduce a couple of tweaks based on all data and feedback we receive and make sure that the ship is absolutely enjoyable and worthy upon her release. As I already said, your input is greatly valued, and we’re working to make the best of it.
Please keep an eye for the news, and see you soon. Cheers
It does pay off when players show their discontent about something and it’s good news Wargaming is listening to players.
