Well there it is. Black is as good as worthless now with her radar duration nerf...

Shame, shame!

I’ll call it now: Black will be re-released this July to accompany the USN DD model update. Maybe we’ll even have to complete a grind for the privilege of obtaining her!

Also, I find it amusing the FdG and GK/Preussen will now have better hydro than their CC counterparts.

Thank God for the Nerf to audacious. Like, that's what everyone has been saying for years, "Audacious is too good."

So, people bid on a tier 10 ship and the people who won it, get slapped in the face by you nerfing it, after you monetize it, same old WG.

German BCs. Kind of expected those.

Black: still Gonna be good

Nakhimov: slightly less dumpstering

Henri: starting to realize two yrs later how badly you killed that thing

Acceleration: ah so if those CVs are actually found you might actually have a chance to shoot at them

Hello, Captains!

A new DevBlog has been posted here: https://blog.worldofwarships.com/blog/270

Please leave any feedback you have here <3

Thank you!

Regarding the German battlecruisers - can you please check if the balance depatment used data from the period when the secondary gun mounts and torpedo launchers became breakable again, or if they used skewed data due to the fact that for most of the time after these ships became available for all players these modules were invulnerable due to a bug?

Black is still the only one I can think of which has both radar AND smoke. 

I mean... if you're cool with the smokeless radar DD life, more power to you. But for those who want both on a destroyer, I'm pretty sure Black still is/was the only game in town.

The reduction is from 22 to 19 seconds, which is... what? One salvo from Black's gun armament?

As much to the point, the fact that a radared target doesn't render to colleagues for the first six seconds cuts down team fire duration from 15 to 12 seconds. Start looking at the cycle times of cruiser guns. There's going to be a few that probably don't get a second salvo off in that time, even assuming they have a valid shot the instant the target renders, and quite a few light cruisers which aren't Smolensk that won't get a third.

I knew Schlieffen would get a nerf, I'm so glad that I got to play him for a while before the nerf. Hopefully it won't be as bad as Venezia was pre-nerf, where it got nerf hammered literally the day before I finished the Brindisi grind.

Schlieffen nerf - booooooooooooooooooo!!!!!!

what’s wrong with a (single) bb in the entire game that can actually fight back against dds? Any dd that gets spotted should be able to get punished, they were already buffed to be resistant to bb ap shells. The Schleif already has a weak armor scheme so once spotted by the dd it is already subject to reprisal and dont forget it was marketed as a brawling bb. Taking away it’s defining feature is wrong.

Yeah, everyone talks about how CVs are so fast. That's certainly the biggest issue with CVs

I can't agree with that lol. If a player can't hit the side of a barn, don't shoot the broadside of a CV. Unifying the speeds of carriers isn't an issue. Why aren't all BBs, CAs, and DDs the same speed..

They didn't unify the speed, though. They unified the time  to max power for the engine.

That's what I meant. The idea of unifying the time to max power for the engine, why is that necessary.. Had to be for simplicity sake in coding but that's just lazy.

Yes, doing work to correct a discrepancy is "lazy". Strong argument.

These values are already unified for the vast majority of all units in the game.

Her.  Ships are "her".

Bismarck's captain was a weirdo who insisted Bismarck had to be a "him" because no lady could be that powerful.  That was not the normal German perspective on the gendering of ships.

The blog mentions Fenyang's HE to also be affected by change, but only list the change to AP.

What change is being applied to HE?
