Reduced repair costs for tiers VII-X!

After collecting more feedback from players, we've decided to experiment with another monthlong change to the World of Warships economy, this one running all of June.

Prior to this testing period, it could be tough to repair high-tier ships, which may have made them less enjoyable to play. But now we're reducing the repair costs by approximately 40% at tier X, and 25% at tiers VII-IX. Captain your favorite high-tier ships more frequently!

 

These apply only to regular (non-Premium) ships.

 

In addition, please bear in mind that this is only a test, and we'll analyze results before we consider any permanent changes to the overall game economy.

25% sounds like it will be the true sweet spot for reduced repairs for T7-T9. I don't own any T10s, but a 40% reduction in repair costs sounds really good! We might actually start seeing more than just the 'OP' 'standard' T10s in games.(And I do hope we'll see more aggressive play from the T10 ships as well, since they have to worry about repair fees even less now)

Great, hope this proves to be a positive move for the game and ends up implemented for good.

If this breaks the stand-off tactic in T10 games I'm all for it. Would also make those unfortunate early deaths easier to stomach.

this should have been done before. Why would WG make repair cost be 200k? This is one of the reason people don't try and take point and hide until the time is up.

I'm sorry you play tier 10 when there are 2000 players on.

Good move.  I stopped playing tiers 8-9 because of the passive play caused by the ridiculous repair bills.  I didn't buy the Des Moines because of the boring passive play style caused by the absurd repair bills as well.  If the reduced repair bills become permanent the game will be greatly improved and expanded.
