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.

this should have been done before. Why would WG make repair cost be 200k? This is one of the reason people don't try and take point and hide until the time is up.

I'm sorry you play tier 10 when there are 2000 players on.

Sounds great. It would lessen our burdens on tier VII ships.

Good move.  I stopped playing tiers 8-9 because of the passive play caused by the ridiculous repair bills.  I didn't buy the Des Moines because of the boring passive play style caused by the absurd repair bills as well.  If the reduced repair bills become permanent the game will be greatly improved and expanded.

They'll further reduce repair costs as the tech trees expanding.

I propose an active petition to bring the repair rate to a flat 50%. It makes you wonder what WOW's game plan is. It does not increase player participation. It does not increase the player base.

We alone have the power so i'll sign the petition first.

I should I have  been blown out of the water more than most. Not ashamed just learning like everyone else with no ego.

Join me if you agree make your comments and sign on board for a flat 50% discount on repairs.

Why not for premium ships? Do they already receive reduced repair costs? I don't have any other tier VIII ships to compare to my Tirpitz or Atago. Maybe someone else has one of those and a normal tier VIII and can compare. Thank you.
Don't sweat the small stuff. Life is short. Have fun.:)

I said it was great. No longer does the skill cap go up and I have to try harder to achieve the same result in a lower tier. I can just take it easy and rake in even more credits i dont need.

Thank you for this Niko!, that's good news.

I play my tier 9's and 10's as often as I can, always making good use of the signals as much as possible, to help reduce the costs.

And yes, it does make it more enjoyable to play them knowing it's not going to cost an arm and a leg to repair them.

Well done, Cheers!

Well, hopefully WG can come up with the perfect sweet spot where gameplay on the upper levels is enhanced yet are still able to keep us riff raff out of the fray.  :P

Thank you very much! I almost cried when I saw my 200k repair bill on my Ibuki

 

  Keep the customers happy, and you'll make out fine.  Lose the customer, well then you got squat!
