  • Fubuki: Hull (B) fire chance in line with the rules applied to tier VI ships

  • Increased damage from HE-46 shells used by all Soviet destroyers tier V and up, except for Gremyashchy, which already has 1,900 damage from HE-46) and 130mm HE A (Anshan) from 1,600 to 1,900. This makes Soviet destroyers more effective at fighting enemy destroyers, and a larger threat to cruisers

 

Look, a nerf to an IJN DD and a buff to a bunch of Russians. How UNUSUAL:facepalm:.

Unbelievable, buffing Russian DDs. Just unbelievable. Who would of thought? WG literally just nerfed them because they were doing too much damage and now they are buffing their damage so not only will they be the best at range, they will be the best in close quarters. USN DDs, the one USN class that doesn't suck is about to get relegated.

Yeah god forbid they fix a bug in the Fubuki that's an unintentional relic of dropping it 2 tiers. What a heinous nerf! The world shall end in fire!

On a serious note - why in the actual FVCK does anyone think the Russian 130mm guns need to be made more powerful, and why was giving Khabarovsk a heal a good idea? Decreasing the survivability of that ship has been an ongoing struggle for the devs for like 8 months. Now they are giving it a heal? Yeah that's probably a smart move.

Wow so every uptiered ship will be received for free.

Very nice compensation WG!

Carriers are like error cats, you hate them, they ruin your gameplay, and you do everything in your power to avoid them. But they always win in the end. \(.x.)/

Battleships are like princesses. They're entitled to everything, and will one day become the queen of the ocean.

Cruisers are like everyone's b***h. They get deleted by everything, and have to stay miles away to survive.

Destroyers are like lolis. They stalk you behind your back and tickle you to death when you least expect it.

A heal at the cost of smoke. Get one or the other, not both.

Time to make driving Russian DDs as un-fun as possible for anyone I meet...I still can't believe they thought this was a good idea for LeningradUdaloi, or Khabarovsk.

 

Yeah, let's give the T10 DD doing nearly 25% more average damage than the rest an 18.75% DPM buff...oh, and just because 50mm of armor to resist all calibers of HE not from a battleship, with or without IFHE, wasn't enough, let's give it the option to mount British cruiser heal as well...:facepalm:

I don't have the Khab, but if Notser laughs while saying, "Giving up smoke on this ship means nothing. I don't even need it. I get a heal now, and I don't have to give up anything for it" than I think that's a "sacrifice" that Khabarovsk drivers will not hesitate to make. The first thing people say when discussing how to be good in Soviet DDs has always been, "Get used to being spotted 100% of the time and learn to deal with it." Suffice it to say I don't think it's much of a sacrifice. 

 

See the above post to get an idea of what I mean. He sounds really conflicted on which option to choose.

Supposedly it's beyond RN super-heal: it regenerates 4% HP/sec and lasts 20 seconds.  Same ratios as cruisers (33% normal pen, 100% overpen, 50% citadel but that doesn't matter anyhow), which doesn't surprise me honestly.

 

I really hope the HP regen rate was a translation error or a typo, but my hopes aren't high.

WG gives a reason for the Fubuki nerf (relic it wasn't supposed to keep) but it wasn't exactly making the ship OP. I guess it wouldn't be an update without a IJN DD nerf of some sort.

Any reason given for why they thought the Russian line needed better gun damage? Did they NEED to be more effective against DDs and a bigger threat to cruisers? They were doing just fine before. That reason could apply for every DD in the game so lets buff all DD guns.

Several of them needed it.  Tashkent, OgnevoiGnevny, and Kiev are being uptiered with very little material buffs (Kiev gets the most with an HP increase and Tashkent's current torpedoes), and Minsk has Leningrad's main battery (same bad arcs and traverse) but mounts the tech tree standard 4km suicide torps.  Udaloi and Khabarovsk didn't need it for sure: I think Grozovoi has always had the 1900 alpha, so I'd call her balanced with it now that her AA has been nerfed.

Reducing one or more of the capabilities of a ship from its current form. It may be a justified correction but is still a nerf to the ship as it is now, at the level it is now.

Just your standard Russian bias fearmongering. In the current PT build they use the regular Cruiser heal, like what you'd find on the Das Moist & Balti

I'll be sure to raise a pointless hue and cry over bug fixes as nerfs in the future now. It's not a nerf.
