New features

Unique Ship Camouflage

Unique camouflages have been introduced to the game. These can have increased ships stats and XP gain bonuses

  • Unique camouflage is permanent; once purchased, it can be used at any time
  • Unique camouflage can be only equipped on its corresponding ship
  • All premium ships have unique camouflage
  • All T6 or higher ships have unique camouflage

Economy tweaks

Rewards from battle

  • Tier 1, Tier 2, and Tier 3 ships were receiving less XP and Silver from battle than we expected
  • Because the of the difference in XP and Silver gain between a winning and losing team was so large, players with outstanding performance on a losing team would not receive a very satisfying reward
  • In the previous version, XP and Silver gain depended too heavily on kills, while other team-based performance offered less

We are going to do following changes to solve these issues:

Base XP and Silver

Tiers Changes
1 to 3 +25%
4 to 8 +10%

Performance factor changes

Tiers Changes
1 to 2 +20% XP and Silver reward for damage dealt
5 to 7 +10% Silver reward for damage dealt 
4 to 10 -10% XP reward for each ship kill
All

+20% XP and Silver reward for each aircraft kill

+20% XP and Silver reward for each point capture

Removal of sunk penalty

  • In all Battle Tiers, being sunk in battle will no longer incur a silver penalty

Winning Bonus reduced

In all Battle Tiers, the Victory bonus on XP and Silver has been reduced from 50% to 25% Ship research XP and price change

  • Except Battleships, all other Tier 2, Tier 3 and Tier 4 ship research XP and Silver price have been reduced by 8%-15%

Ship Maintenance Cost

In this version, we have balanced the service cost for all ships based on their tier. + Ships of the same tier always has same Maintenance cost for each battle.

Ship performance changes

Shell dispersion update

We have added new dispersion values for all gun types to control how the shells disperse within the max dispersion area; now most of the shells’ impact within the dispersion area are not uniformly distributed over the surface, but will attempt to hit towards the center of aim.

Battleship Tuning

We are aware of the positive performance of battleships in all tiers of battle. We love their outstanding survivability and devastating firepower, but reloading time is a little bit faster than we expected, even in a comparatively fast paced mobile game.

We have decided to do following changes on battleships:

Increase main armament reloading time
