Ladies and Gentlemen, I salute you. With the update 0.8.3 slowly approaching, the different ships in testing received various changes to their performances. Let’s have a look at them.
Changes to the Soviet battleships, Georgia, Indomitable and Yoshino
Changes to Soviet battleships
Sooo… the Russian battleships at high tier just received one serious survivability nerf. The Kreml and Sovetsky Soyuz’s middle sections are now fully immune to any cruiser HE shell unless you decide to use Inertia Fuse for HE on your Hindenburg or Super-cruisers (please don’t do that.)
On top of that, their torpedo protection was significantly increased and the HP pool of their turrets as well… Boy now that will take some time to bring these ships down if they don’t give you broadside.
As for the AP penetration nerf, they are nerfing the krupp value on all 3 ships:
Vladivostok: From 2430 to 2300
Sovetsky Soyuz: From 2430 to 2300
Kreml: From 2450 to 2200
Overall, it’s not that big of a nerf. Their AP will still hurt a lot no matter the range.
As for the Slava, the changes are quite interesting and even though the ship now has a 32 mm deck, don’t worry, she will still do more than fine if she has to tank.
Changes to Georgia
Ugh… I was so happy to have a balanced ship that wasn’t bringing more powercreep to the game… turns out other people thought that it wasn’t a good idea.
At least, the accuracy remains the same but for the rest, it’s basically a super Massachusetts which should be pretty fun. Then again, we will see when we receive it for testing.
Nerf to Indomitable
As I was saying in my review, the new Indomitable feels too comfortable to play and I would say that this nerf will help to fix that nicely.
Change to Yoshino
I’m not sure if I need to laugh or cry. Sure, these torpedoes can be nice for area denial buuut… I question their use on this ship. Anyway, like for the rest, we will see during testings.
That’s all for now regarding balance changes for the test ships with update 0.8.3, thank you for reading this article.
