They mean that the changes will make a low end PC more responsive and faster.  The issue does not affect people that have powerful systems with fast CPU's and graphics.  

 

The update is meant to help people with older low end computers.

This is very bad news for sestroyer captains.   These ships are all designed to be destroyer hunters.

 

Hopefully they will bring more balance to the game, and lessen the influence that destroyers currently have.

.

 

Yes, and no.  Since they only carry AP ammo, they're not often going to do a tremendous amount of damage per volley; I was watching one YouTuber using the Minotaur, and saw a destroyer (a Fubuki if memory serves) bounce multiple shots from medium range.  So fellow DD drivers, we're going to have to learn how to angle. :D

 

Also, because the British cruisers are relatively lightly armored, I would think they'd be relatively easy to penetrate with most destroyers' AP shots.  Plus the point made before, that these ships will get deleted if a battleship or heavy cruiser ever gets a broadside shot at them.

 

What will be an issue is their extremely good (for a cruiser) concealment ratings, combined with smoke/radar.  These ships could be outstanding cappers in Domination matches.  Plus the ability to ripple fire their torpedoes could create for some interesting knife-fighting sessions with opposing destroyers.

Update will be happening on Wednesday 10/19. Apologies for the date slipping out. Was wrestling with formatting.

 

So I'll be getting it Today ?. The reason I ask is because I'm from the EU but play on the NA server purely because when I won a Closed Beta code way back when it was a NA server code, I was told it could be transfered to a EU Server but was problematic so I never bothered.That being said the server's are currently unavailable not even able to check for updates is this the maintenance for the patch I assume ?

The server is now back up and patch 0.5.13 is live on the NA servers. So it doesn't matter where you play from, if you play on the NA server then you can download the latest patch and play now!

It's overloaded pretty badly right now.  I'm fluctuating between 15 & 40kb/s and about 67% done.

i wish we could choose which type of container gets auto-collected at the end of the day, instead of it being random.

e.g. set to auto-collect the "try your luck"container, then open them all at once when you feel like it.

 

also, an option to skip that loooooooooong animation when opening them would be nice.

 

That'd be especially nice for those that will collect a bunch and open all at once.

I wouldn't pin your hopes on this, they are squishy and still suffer the same problem of all cruisers, they are instantly targeted by BBs so they will be reluctant to push up.

 

The "national flavor" of the royal navy will be their citadels, even smaller than the clevelands (owing to the fact the only thing in the citadel will be the powerplant and magazines sitting well under the waterline) the latter probably would result in detonation for torpedo hits (better learn to detonate magazines with a torpedo :red_button:

When they talk about optimization, they talk about improving the performance...

Started at 8ish EDT, 2 500MB segments @ about 500KB/sec. Download and install took about an hour. Expect it to be faster after the initial wave.

Still plugging away with download speeds in the mid 90s.  And by "mid 90s" I mean mid 1990s.

We need a feedback string for update 0.5.13 perhaps there is one and I didn't see it. As for the Brit CL's... I have only played the Weymouth admittedly however, regarding that ship its ability or lack there of to effect BB's is absolutely ridiculous. In my opinion given the lack of smoke at T2 WG needs to give it HE shells. Without it the ship is pretty much no contest whatsoever for a BB. This is not balanced. I look forward to the official feedback string.

Shoot their superstructure. Not their belt. Don't bother if they're angled. Ideally, pick another target and don't even bother with the BBs till you have to.

From what I have read it is a switch between narrow salvos and single torpedoes.

Yeah, the news page text came right out and said, basically, BBs are not your target, don't bother. :P

Yes, pressing '3' switches between a narrow spread and a single shot.  There is no 'wide spread' option that I can see.

Uhm.....Once again....WOW !!!! 
I didn't even get a chance to enter a battle after the patch, and I had to back out of game and come comment.  Containers.....seriously??  AMAZING !!!...what a brilliant idea and incentive program for players.
To actually earn something physical (virtually) is an incredible move forward, not to mention the fact that  giving players something that normally costs them money, just enhances the feeling that you're now getting paid for your efforts.  And, not only is the concept brilliant, but the execution of the graphics for that whole operation is outstanding.  Plus you gave us a British Cruiser?.....How nice is THAT ???
All of this gleaned before even entering a battle or the tech tree.   I can't  wait to see what else this patch has in store for us all.
Thank you WOWS team.  What a generous gift you've given us, in this patch.
