Doesn’t seem like it was announced here yet but 0.8.3 is delayed a day due to technical problems after CIS updated. There will still be no CBs today and tomorrow

The announcement says no clan battles on the 25th. Are they back on for the 24th?

Maybe they're rethinking CVs in Ranked play.  Oh wait, nevermind.  That would make too much sense.

Still easier to hold the update back until the vast majority of the NA server is either asleep or going to work for the morning. Yes, there will always be some people (e.g. in different timezones) who are inconvenienced, but the timing keeps it down to a minimum. Think of all those poor [edited] who would be cut off abruptly if the patch suddenly dropped in the middle of their afternoon off.

then they get  those 1 day premium time to compensate for something it's not their fault AGAIN.

I mean Ranked will be coming with 0.8.4 though a rethink would be welcome nonetheless. Mostly something server related seeing as RU server gets the patch normally.

Still, at the moment the patch is being downloaded, hoping it won't lock me out of the game :Smile_hiding:.

I just hope they can input the timer delay on CVs at the start of a Ranked battle so they don't immediately render DDs useless.  We all know how DD heavy Ranked can be, and it would be a shame for a single ship to neuter DD effectiveness for the entire match.

As for the patch, it has been delayed until tomorrow.  Your client may just be pre-downloading some items in advance at this point.

The update has been slated for tomorrow and no we won't do it earlier than that.  There were a couple of minor issues that we feel require fixing before the patch is rolled out and it's worth just moving things back a day.

While the timer delay is coming, that will not be available in tomorrow's update.  We're still doing a little more testing with that.

@Radar_X or someone else, can you answer this?  I know you guys have been letting us know that there were no clan battles for the 24th, but with the patch moved and battles on the 25th cancelled, are they back on for tonight?

Dunno if the timer will even matter personally; tier X maps tend to be quite large so getting there by a DD takes a bit of time. In a talk I had with a pretty good CV player, with the time delay and by using the rocket planes you can be flying over the cap by the time capping is about halfway. Of course this is about the normal timer, not the 45 sec Ranked tends to have, but then you have to account for Radar and red DDs also contesting the caps.

Bottom line I think it will get more DDs sunk due to a false sense of security than help much.

No, due to the update CB will not be held today or tomorrow.  Rest assured they'll be back this weekend!

I think WG has a pretty good track record with not botching patches.

When was the last time it was this bad? 0.5.3 with disappearing UI when more than one player ctrl+clicked onto the same aircraft?

Would you rather they released a disaster upon us? Better to catch it before it goes out, inasmuch as you can.
