Seawolf35 posted a topic in General Game DiscussionTech Tree Ship Review Tier I UK Cruiser Black Swan "Wargaming, why you take my AP away" "Lifeboats, your gonna need em." Where shall we start, where shall we start, you may be wondering, why am I writing a review about a tin can at Tier I. I am doing this because I find low tiers fascinating. The pew pews that pass for guns, and the AA that has no use. I could go on and on and on. So, where was I, ah yes. The Black Swan, the ship that suffered from the loss of AP, the bote at Tier I that has flak guns. The Black swan is peculiar because it used to shoot AP and has six rapid firing 102 mm pew pews. ARMOR NOPE NOPE NOPE NOPE NOPE NOPE NOPE NOPE NOPE NOPE NOPE NOPE NOPE NOPE NOPE NOPE NOPE NOPE NOPE NOPE I WILL SAY ONE MORE TIME NOPE FIREPOWER Mount:102 mm/45 QF Mark XIX Alpha Strike: 750 Hitpoints Initial Velocity: 850 m/ Sec Rate of Fire: 10 Shots a min Max Range: 8.7 km 180° Turn Time: 18 sec Max Dispersion: 80 m Chance of Fire: 6% Traverse Speed: 10° Sec Sigma: 2.00 Shell: HE 35lb Practice There is something interesting about the Black Swan's firepower. The ship used to shoot AP but WG brought down the nerf hammer on them. The 3x2 mounts are the most firepower a ship has at Tier I. It always for funsies when you machine gun a bot or baby seal. Fire chance, meh. But the reload speed of 6 sec is nice. Especially yolo bots at lower tiers. Maneuverability Horsepower:4,300 Max Speed: 19 knots Fast, but not. The Black Swan is not a zoom zoom. You can get where you are going with some ease. Islands is small though. Summary Overpowered
why!!!!!!!!!!!!!!? seriously he for black swan, cause that leads into the rest of the line how? so much for tier 1 ranked! Game Balance Changes For British Tier I cruiser Black Swan, the guns’ reload time has been increased from 3 to 4 seconds. AP shells have been replaced by HE shells: Initial shell velocity — 811 m/s; maximum damage — 750; chances of causing fire — 6%. Since the cruiser’s shells have typical British ricochet angles and a high firing rate, she has gained the reputation of being the best duel ship of her Tier. The changes are designed to reduce her effectiveness, making her less attractive for experienced players, but maintaining comfort for beginners.
