8.8 Patch Notes

Is anyone else wondering where the patch notes for 8.8 are? They usually drop them the day before the update goes live and personally, I think I speak for a fair amount of the community when I say that I'm eager to start planning out what I want to accomplish with regards to the anniversary event. Will we be getting another round of Not-So-Super, Somewhat-Super, and Actually-Super Containers. Might the anniversary truly grace us with the opportunity to harvest Steel off our highest tier ships? Will the players find something new to complain about (yeah, that last one's a given but the Complainer's Union probably needs at least sometime to decide what specifically they'll voice their objections too)?

I know some people will want to bring up the test server, but that isn't exactly the best way of learning the specifics of what we can get from an event such as this. If it was, I'd have a lot more Steel than I currently do.

They'll release them Tuesday, as usual. :Smile_trollface:

It really is weird patch notes haven't showed up yet, but then again, when was the last time WG released a patch on a day other than Wednesday or Thursday? Maybe this Monday patch was a last second thing and no one told whoever was in charge of releasing the patch notes of the Monday release.

Does @Femennenly or any other Staff member have anything regarding the absence of patch notes?

There's going to be an Anniversary stream tomorrow.  They may want to save the announcements for that time.

We'll see em either as the patch is dropped or sometime today,

I've been wondering the same thing. I'm thinking that Sovereigndawg and ClassicLib have hit on what I think is happening as well. Surprise party!

 

With the patch hitting tomorrow, I figured that we would get patch notes this weekend, but nothing that I can find, so I dropped in to see if there was anything here.

I got bad vibes about this anniversary.  They just had a 25% perma camo sale for T8 and 9, it seems unlikely they’d have a 50% for T5-9 now.  They also had upgrade sales twice in the past month - last year the upgrade sale coincided with a full tech tree sale on the anniversary - would they have a third so soon?  

I hope WG keeping details close to the chest is an indicator of just how awesome the sales and rewards are this year.

Since Siegfried (unconfirmed) is coming out they are holding off on the notes for as long as possible.

Nice to see you back. Some had said you weren’t around anymore.

Why would they release a ship that almost makes Azuma look like a worthwhile waste of free XP?

Fem was asked about it in a Twitch stream this morning and she said she does not know why they didn't go out today.  Could be that she knows but it really is a surprise.

Honestly, I think the same. Feels like a uptiered Gneisenau.

At least they will give us the 4x3 150mm Hipper, but for $$$$$

Unless there will be some surprise releases of new ships, I'm anticipating this to be another pretty boring and uninteresting patch. Frankly, there hasn't been any content releases that have had me excited since the RU BB line went live. Hope there will be something good, but not getting my hopes up. Been waiting for something new for months now, and I still don't see it on the horizon.

Please don't spam staff, they have enough work to do already.
