Here's a question for you all, particularly @Hapa_Fodder … 

 

From the next update's webpage:

The following ships have been added for testing by developers, volunteers, and community contributors: flag_Japan_740b57e1da9b5d3fe46b61e09e3dcspecial_fdb3e9eabba1009b1c4adb7b370a68a2VIII Asama, flag_Italy_206c77d5bf356559100ac3e95fdb7premium_1d0cabf1997104fd727039ab9c098192VIII Impero, flag_France_1b45875fe2166c392a4b0801c9fapremium_1d0cabf1997104fd727039ab9c098192VIII Champagne, flag_Russia_6ce701e1c2f2ac3909a68a0a7b23premium_1d0cabf1997104fd727039ab9c098192IX Zarya Svobody, flag_USA_dd9fc06d19a8638f4077ab2fe200d22special_f75e4cad6399ce68536c0ed26af761c9X F.D. Roosevelt, flag_Russia_6ce701e1c2f2ac3909a68a0a7b23premium_1114542bcd311c388080eea3a4d54a7eV Mikoyan, and flag_Russia_6ce701e1c2f2ac3909a68a0a7b23special_333a61069a325ba8314cbbae96c1a345V Kotovsky.

 

I recognize the names Champagne and FDR, but what's the deal with the other ships, particularly the Asama, Impero, and Zarya Svobody?

So, let's see.  They announce the FDR and the Champagne, but not even a clue about the others?  Loverly.

Just because its announced on the main page, doesn't mean they can divulge information on the ships (since they are still in development). Like (before the current changes) when CCs could freely talk about a test ship they were given where as ST's could not.

Sometime I really want to be in the decision making room.

Lets let out the Itialn BB amd FDR but not the rest.

Lets put the UU in the armory but cha ge them in the next 2 patches so we can answer all the "were is my tech d" because I did not know they were being changed.

Hummm....

If you go to the Dev blog forum, you can find the information already released on those ships. May take a bit as most of the threads are some variation of 'new ships' or 'changes to ships'.

Kotovsky is going to be Kirov’s replacement in the tech tree, Mikoyan is supposed to be a premium in the vein of the high tier CAs (effective AP, long reload, and the new Russian CA dispersion). Impero is based on Roma with SAP instead of HE and the Italian engine smoke. Zarya is supposedly a proof of concept test ship for potential changes to Soyuz, including swapping the Russian BB dispersion for the standard US et al dispersion. Asama is a proof of concept Amagi to test ‘changes.’ And of course you know of Champagne and FDR. 

 

The russian cruisers were announced in the Russian cruiser split dev blog, Impero and Asama were originally in the Champagne/FDR dev blog, and Zarya was announced in the dev blog from two weeks ago (that included changes to Asama).

Asama is an Amagi/Kii clone with better dispersion I guess.  Curious about the Imperio...

I guess I'm not greedy.  At this point, I'm curious if they're new ships in testing or perhaps some sort of test using an existing ship using a different name for said ship.  (For example, say that WG was testing BB SAP on the Roma and just decided to call the test ship the Impero.)  It's just frustrating to see this stuff listed in these sorta-release notes without at least a tiny bit more info.

See my post above. It requires a little digging, but there are at least basic things for each in the various dev blogs from the past month or so.

They’re on facebook, reddit, and here. Facebook is sometimes finnicky when it comes to searching the dev blog posts, but reddit has always been straightforward and the forum posts are somewhat easy to search for if the search function wants to cooperate.

From Reddit (28 days ago):

Also, Italian Tier VIII battleship Impero and Japanese Tier VIII battleship Asama will be added to the game for testing. These ships are based on the Italian battleship Roma and Japanese battleship Amagi, but with changed characteristics and consumables.

At the moment, the concept of Impero involves the following changes:

  • Impero will be equipped with semi-armor piercing shells instead of high explosive ones and will have "Exhaust Smoke Generator" consumable. At the same time, it will have increased reload time of the main caliber guns.
  • Asama is at an early stage of testing and her special characteristics will be announced later.

Ah, the Roma variant with Sap.  Cool thanks.

They mentioned the Asama in one of the WoWs streams and said it’s supposed to have “better dispersion” than Amagi.
