Further information about what has been changed with the latest World of Warships 0.6.3 Public Test update.
0.6.3 Public Test Update
Based on our evaluations of 0.6.3 during testing, as well as the feedback received from the community, we’ve decided to implement these additional changes:
- The “Concealment System Modification 1″ upgrade will receive an additional effect which reads “+ 5% to the maximum dispersion of enemy shells that fire on your ship”;
- The cruisers Ibuki, Zao, Baltimore, Des Moines, Neptune, Minotaur, Roon, Hindenburg, Dmitry Donskoy, Moskva will receive an increase in accuracy for main caliber artillery (tighter grouping of shells inside the dispersion ellipse -sigma increased from 2.0 to 2.05).
With the above change destroyers and cruisers which previously relied exclusively camouflage for protection and which choose the above upgrade will receive additional protection. It will be most noticeable when under fire from large-caliber guns at long ranges, when the dispersion ellipse (which defines the scatter of shells) is quite large. This means that entering a melee, for example, for control of a point, you will need to worry more about those enemies nearest to you and less about those who prefer to stay far away from the action, playing passively.
Further, improving the accuracy of tier IX and X cruisers is aimed at strengthening their role of universal ships, whose artillery is a threat to any target.
We’d also like to note that we are aware of your fears about a possible deterioration in the combat effectiveness of a number of ships. We will closely monitor these ships after the release of version 0.6.3 and will make adjustments in version 0.6.4, if any are necessary.
