Developer Post

In our upcoming 0.6.0 update, Soviet Cruisers will be joining World of Warships Blitz! Stay tuned for more information and news.

Update 0.6.0 is sighted on the horizon! Here is what we have in store for you:

  • From the heart of the motherland, the Soviet Cruisers from Tier 1-10 are here! Cruiser Molotov has also made it to the Premium shop in case you want to fire the Soviet shells right away.
  • To counter the rise of the Soviet ships, we have now added US premium Battleship: USS Texas. Go ahead and blaze the guns of freedom!
  • Talking about guns and shells, the speed of all the shells is reduced by 12%-15% so that now your shells get more flying time to bring more havoc to enemy ships with a better camera angle.
  • More on the topic of guns and shells; we found that dispersion on the guns required some oomph, so we have reduced the dispersion to make the guns more accurate. We also changed the max gun range of some warships.
  • Even more on the topic of guns and shells; a dozen, yes, exactly a dozen ships have now historically accurate number of secondary guns…more guns!
  • 2 new maps have been added, Haven (for high tiers) and Islands (for low tiers) have been added for you to sink more enemies.
  • Inspired by physics and nature, now the warships will lose speed while turning.
  • Torpedoes are fun but slightly overpowered. Thus, we have decided to bring our nerf hammer and reduce the torpedo speed by 13%-18%.
  • Torpedoes are fun but slightly under-powered. Thus, we decided to listen to our buff brigade and increased the torpedo concealment by 25%
  • Destroyers were getting one shotted too easily by Battleships' AP shells, so we increased the chances of over-penetration from AP shell for destroyers. Rejoice!
  • But now Destroyers are more vulnerable to HE shells because you cannot get everything in game. Ouch!
  • We discovered that Destroyers' rudder reliability is unreliably high, so the rudder survivability is reduced by 25%.
  • We also enhanced the UI for guns reloading and turning while aiming, to make it even more intuitive.
  • Some annoying AA bugs were fixed where the damage output was not what we intended.
  • BONUS! If you stare long enough in the port, you will see that it now has more details and looks even better!
