Hi, some of you guys may know me but I left this game a few months back right after the European destroyers were dropped. I recently re-downloaded the game and I was wondering if you guys could help catch me up on what has happened over the past few months. Thank you.

Simple concept without getting into the details...

High Tier Power creep.

Disproportional CVs

Submarines!!!

Mid and low tiers are still intact..

Amazing Dock Yard Graphics/art.

Russian bias controversy.

That is it mainly..

Welcome Back

This just reminds me of how annoyed I am that WG doesn't track patch notes in an easy to consume way.

A few months ago, I wanted to make a timeline of all ship releases... patch "notes" made this nearly impossible to aggregate without looking at every patch individually.

Big thing is some rather overpowered Russian cruisers have been added that now allow 12km Radar to be used on tier 8-10 cruisers and also means if you play ships tiers 6-10 you will face the 12km Radar.

Herman CV line has been seen being tested in Random battles and should be released within 3 months I would say.

Shikishima IJN BB was just added this update in the Armory for 32,000 Steel and carries 20 inch guns in 3 dual turrets, and has what appears to be rather good AA defenses pm and used a Yamato hull.

There have been some new German Super Cruisers and a BB added, the Odin being one of these and is in a dockyard event.

Premium consumables are now the new standard free consumables which has helped the in game economy.

And some maps as you have or will notice have been adjusted.

Why is it whenever I leave that Wargaming starts handing out free stuff like candy?

 Not much free stuff besides the russian cruiser event. And in that one it was only a crappy tier V premium you should have anyways if you had Kirov researched. If you had Moskva now it is a special ship. If you were lucky enough you could also had the tier 8 tech tree Tallin, the rest was pay 2 get.

Subs are in live testing now in their special mode, If you wanna try it. Sub mode doesn't mess your stats and has bonus rewards for 5 matches a day.

Getting free stuff has become RNG based for the most part. You earn the containers and then they, roll the dice for the amount of tokens earned in the crate, usually it's 5 but it could be 300 or 10 or 20 but mostly it rolls 5's. Free stuff also involves spending some real money now.

Subs have made their debut.

Nice to see some familiar faces around. I had the Kirov researched before the event. It's sad to see that this game has become even more about RNGsus.

This may come as a surprise to people but 12km Radar below Tier X existed prior to the new RU Cruisers.

 

They're called Chapayev in Tier VIII, and Dmitri Donskoi in Tier IX.  Both had 12km Radar long before the RU Cruiser Split ever happened.

https://wiki.wargaming.net/en/Ship:Consumables#Surveillance_Radar

Chapayev also had Stealth Radar capability from a very long time ago.

 

I've been seeing people comment around the boards about "the new Russian Long Range Radar!" and all kinds of stuff, and they're all wrong.  There's even people surprised that there's "now" 12km Radar when that's been in the game for years and years.

Yep, I remember.

The armory is really laggy for me for some reason. :Smile_sceptic:

This has been confusing for me. Are these players just used to seeing those ships using their radar so infrequently that they forgot about it?

Operation I Have Returned.

Actually that’s not a bad idea: An operation to support an Amphib landing, clear the way so X number of landing ships drive onto the beach. One of the stars could be earned by getting MacArthur’s land craft safely to shore.

At least for NA server, it's probably because of how less played Chapayev, Dmitri Donskoi are compared to other more popular Radar Cruisers (see USN) in their tiers.

1st Quarter 2020 NA Server Battles Played stats for some Radar Cruisers of High Tier.

VIII Chapayev 157,054

IX Dmitri Donskoi 163,894 - This number last quarter is inflated as people caught on that they need to grind on D.Donskoi to get XPs on her for upcoming Al.Nevsky or grinding to get Moskva before Moskva became a Premium Ship.  4th Quarter 2019, she logged only 90,918 Battles.

IX Premium Super Cruiser Kronshtadt 33,941

X Moskva 177,432

X Premium Super Cruiser (Steel Ship) Stalingrad 70,074

 

VIII Baltimore 195,525

VIII Cleveland 239,146

IX Buffalo 157,147

IX Premium Super Cruiser Alaska 182,400

X Des Moines 350,987

X Premium Super Cruiser Puerto Rico 139,612

X Worcester 165,075

 

The old RU Radar Cruisers were played less.  You were a lot more likely to find a USN Radar Cruiser than a Russian one.  Maybe people got more used to dealing with things they saw all the time, i.e. "normal" 9km (Cleveland, Worcester) or 10km Radar (Baltimore, Des Moines).
