Announcement!

Italian Battleships!

Yes, they are finally here!  A whole new line of ships representing the Nation of Pasta Primavera!

Italian battleships fire a unique kind of shell:  Semi-armor piercing (SAP).  This type of shell has a much greater

chance of penetrating armor than a normal HE shell, but not quite as good as a true AP shell.  However, the new SAP shells

come with a 75% chance of starting a fire!  Also, while Italian battleships are not as heavily armored as their contemporaries,

they have a top speed of 38 knots, making them quite hard to hit while moving and allowing them to outrun most other battleships.

We are proud to introduce Tier V Spaghetti, Tier VI Spaghetti and Meatballs, Tier VII Alfredo, and Tier VIII Alfredo con Pollo.

Stay Tuned for More!

 

GAME BALANCE CHANGES

BATTLESHIPS

AP shells are more skill-demanding for successful use than HE shells, but their efficiency is higher, if used correctly. 

The updated battleships constitute a relatively novel class in the game since they were almost exclusively used for

shore bombardment and sea escort, and most players have been using them to delete other ships such as

cruisers in a single salvo.  Consequently, the overall damage dealt by this type of armament has become too high. 

We, therefore, decided to systematically lower the maximum damage of AP shells, but without

lowering their penetration.  All battleship AP shell damage will be lowered by 30%. 

We will watch independent performance of the ships and take additional action if needed.

Is the T10 called the "Tour of Italy"?  Cause if so that'd be great.

You obviously have inside information that WG will sue you for disclosing, you know.  You did sign that NDA, right?

Looks like you will be sued too!  That was top-secret, and forced WG to roll out the American Battleship line instead of the Italian one.

Now they have to come up with new names for the top two tiers.

 

P.S.  Johnny Cochran is available.  He stomped WG during that debacle with the Italian cruisers packing 20 km torps.  Give him a call!  And remember, I'm on your side!
