Hi guys!

 

So sea-group dug up some stats from the new PTS:

 

Lot's of TDS changes all over the place. Some QoL for ships, and more! :Smile_great:

 

Thanks to @renegadestatuz for finding the full notes for me.

 

Fair winds and following seas captains! :Smile_honoring:

Wait a minute? INCREASING TDS defense on Guilio?! WHAT?! :Smile_teethhappy:

And I see some changes for Roma? Is she peeking her way out?

Roma is more than likely entering ST in the next session after the patch drops.

I really wish they would buff Atago's AA. But a Slight torp buff is good.

I like how my Harekaze is gettting a torp reload buff as well :Smile-_tongue:

Buffing Cesare?

 

Screw it, at this rate they'll make Duilio at tier VI :Smile_teethhappy:

 

On a more serious note; Why buff one of the best BBs in the entire game? The list of BBs that have a higher WR is limited to two low-tier OP-AF not-sold-no-more sealclubbers, and the Alabama ST.

I guess they must be buffing it to prepare for the new pan asian torp equipped dds. This worries me:Smile_sceptic:

That's a big increase on the Cesare.

 

Best guess, a few people have been noting oddly low TDS values for several recent BB's and WG'ing found a bug in how they'd calculated the last several and are fixing it, ceasere just got caught up in it.

 

Also Colorado HP Buff. Woohoo.

So The Lexington has only one fighter now, in exchange for a torpedo bomber. This means that a Kaga or Shokaku can tie up the Lexington's one fighter with one of its own and then use the other one or two to strafe it. Now, with the long reload of USN carriers, the IJN carrier has free reign of the skies, for at least a minute or two, while still having two or three fighters to take care of 2/3s of the Lexington's remaining planes.

 

I think that two fighters and two armor-piercing dive bombers would have been a better loadout, or two fighters and one each torpedo and dive bomber.

Well hopefully these bonuses are only being applied to the deepest portions of the TDS for the Italian ships, I ignore the French ship.

Looks like the Colorado HP campaign by me and several others have paid off. However, a sigma nerf? Really?

 

Eh they're normalising it across hulls and we get to keep the heal.

Kaga never faces Lex in current MM. T8s only face t8s. But yes, in terms of AS, Shok will now have an easier time vs Lexington. On the other hand Lex dmg potential has a big increase. Question will be to see if it can narrow gap with Enterprise in everyday gaming.

at t7 Kaga will not benefit especially, with Saipan still ruling the skies, while Hiryu rules the tactical game, while as for Ranger I'm outta here!

SInce this is fast moving: Also Nagato only has 1.8 remember, 1.9 is still dannged good.

 

P.S DoY changes involve giving her the 6 quad pom-poms and her 2 quad bofors back. Yay.

Would rather keep the sigma tbh. Even -.1 on a ship with eight relatively spaced out guns is going to be noticeable.

 

I would be much more willing to accept the sigma nerf if the HP buff came with the Maryland hull and therefore an AA buff, but that's not what happened.

Nagato has 2.0 sigma.

Lex can’t see Kaga. The only CVs Lex will see are Enterprise, Shokaku, GZ or another Lex.
