When update 0.7.5 goes live, players who had tier VI cruiser Cleveland in their ports will receive tier VI cruiser Pensacola (in the same configuration as the tier VI Cleveland) and tier VIII cruiser Cleveland. Since Cleveland’s commander will move over to Pensacola and these ships are significantly different in the choice of optimal commander skills, there will be a special combat mission available from the release of the update until June 29th. It will require players to complete a single battle in any mode on the new Pensacola. Once the requirements are met, players will receive 190 000 elite commander XP. This will allow players to reassign the commander skills for free.
US Cruiser Replacement General Rules
A ship to be replaced will remain available to the player in stock configuration on new tier (In the Port if it was purchased or in the researched state if it was researched).
The replacement ship will be added to the player’s account together with a port slot (if the replaced ship has been purchased) or will become researched (if the replaced ship has been researched).
Replacement of modules will be carried out by means of adding similar modules for the new ship to the player’s account, or by reimbursement of their cost in XP (added to the new ship) and credits.
For the replaced ship, its Commander’s specialization will be changed to the ship of the corresponding tier in the main branch. For the second ship, a new Commander will be added to the player’s account and bonus Commander XP.
If a purchased permanent camouflage was mounted on a ship to be replaced, it will remain mounted on this ship and a new permanent camouflage (for the added ship) will be added to the player’s account.
Exceptions: Permanent special camouflages for Cleveland and New Orleans will remain with the ships and will NOT appear for ships taking their place in the new tech tree.
