Kitakaze is also getting nerfed on concealment.  From 7.56km to 7.76km.  So WG finally took notice of her.

Cause its Premium, they never get buffed.   

For once in a very long time, I actually fully agree with ALL these changes.   I've been on the "remove full AP damage" from these two DDs for awhile, and maybe I'll finally take my Harugumo out again, can't wait.     Implacable is the worst T8 CV by a mile, this helps, but its honestly not enough to remove that title...and yes, I'm counting GZ in that discussion, Implacable is worse than GZ.    Haven't played Kansas (no interest in the new USN BBs), but from I hear the guns are gawd awful, so this was needed.   Kita getting nerfed a bit in concealment isn't a big deal and its easily one of the strongest T9 DDs around, so probably deserved.

Funny really, a month ago they said Kitakaze is perfectly balanced and no adjustments are needed. Same with Thunderer and Smaland. :cap_hmm:

Its almost like marketing spin is not to be trusted...

...the hilarious thing to me is when WG staff whines that we find them so untrustworthy...

Hmm. I wonder why...

Source and details of the changes.  They pretty much seem sensible to me.

PT 0.9.11, balance changes

We've changed the characteristics of several ships, having analyzed their combat performance and taken player feedback into account. Such changes were required to carefully adjust the balance of selected warships. We'll continue to introduce changes in the updates that follow, if deemed necessary.

 

X Khabarovsk; X Harugumo:

  • Damage to a ship's HP caused by an AP or SAP shell with a caliber of 280 mm and larger, will no longer exceed 10% of the maximum damage of the shell

VIII Implacable:

  • Maximum bomb damage increased from 5100 to 5300;
  • Chance of a bomb causing fire on a target increased from 29% to 30%

VIII Kansas:

  • Sigma parameter was increased from 1.5 to 1.6.

IX Kitakaze:

  • Detectability range by ships increased from 7.56 to 7.76 km. Other detectability ranges were increased accordingly.

Please note that all information in the development blog is preliminary and subject to change during testing. Any showcased features may or may not end up on the main server. The final information will be published on our game's website.

Guess I'll shelve Kansas until the buff.

I’m aiming to have the grind finished by the end of the current patch, as until then I can take advantage of her current status as a special ship and run the 19pt Halsey captain from my Iowa.

I honestly think there is no such thing as balancing a ship against how it acts in combat, and it's more or less balancing it to the marketing department.

So basically, full conceal Kita will be the same as full conceal Akizuki.

I'm not particularly impressed by the very lackluster buff to Kansas.  0.1 sigma isn't really noticeable, and the glacial reload and awful (for 406mm AP anyway) shell characteristics have yet to be addressed.

So now a few more shells can bounce or shatter, instead of killing fish.

Oh boy!......

So Kansas is now a tad less terrible? Yay, I guess. It's still terrible and I have no desire to play it because of a .01 increase in it's sigma. Good start WG but keep going. Plus, fix the Oklahoma while you're at it.

You know I could tolerate the awful gunnery if the new American battleships got the super heavy AP. I use Minnesota as an HE slinger because the AP is such trash.

Sigma buff 1.5 to 1.6.  Yes!!  Yes!!! This will solve the problem with this HORRIBLE @#@%^ ship!!!     ROFLMFAO

This is like p@#%ing on a forest fire.

For Kansas to be even remotely balanced:

  • Reload - 33 seconds
  • Speed - 25 kts
  • Sigma - 1.8

And this applies pretty much to all of the new slow, pathetic US BBs.

I can get behind all these changes. But Kansas needs a 1.8 sigma, at least. Still, right direction.

I'd say 35s reload, like Arizona, is more appropriate and a fair trade for the extra guns.

Speed up to 28 kts though, lets leave Colorado speed with the Colorado.

Sigma 1.7 for Kansas

Agree 100%. Id go further and reduce reload to 36 or give them the super heavy shells.
