After collecting more feedback from players, we've decided to experiment with another monthlong change to the World of Warships economy, this one running all of June.

Prior to this testing period, it could be tough to repair high-tier ships, which may have made them less enjoyable to play. But now we're reducing the repair costs by approximately 40% at tier X, and 25% at tiers VII-IX. Captain your favorite high-tier ships more frequently!

 

These apply only to regular (non-Premium) ships.

 

In addition, please bear in mind that this is only a test, and we'll analyze results before we consider any permanent changes to the overall game economy.

In all seriousness, thanks a ton Niko! Really appreciate all you do for us!

25% sounds like it will be the true sweet spot for reduced repairs for T7-T9. I don't own any T10s, but a 40% reduction in repair costs sounds really good! We might actually start seeing more than just the 'OP' 'standard' T10s in games.(And I do hope we'll see more aggressive play from the T10 ships as well, since they have to worry about repair fees even less now)

If this breaks the stand-off tactic in T10 games I'm all for it. Would also make those unfortunate early deaths easier to stomach.
