Oh nice, an actual ingame damage counter and over-pen/richochet ribbons.

Some other stuff from the Asia region notes that aren't in the EU page..

http://worldofwarships.asia/ja/news/announcements/public-test-058-key-feature/

 

 全周砲塔

アップデート 0.5.8 では、一部の主砲塔が全周に指向可能な砲塔に変更されました。この変更によって、反対舷方向へ武装を指向する際のタイムロスが減少し、よりアグレッシブな機動が可能になり、複数の数の艦艇におけるゲームプレイが快適になることでしょう。

 

Certain ships' turrets will now have the ability to turn 360 degrees.

 
その他の変更点

    AP 弾と HE 弾の間に視覚的な区別がありましたが、自艦艇と他艦艇の間にも砲弾の配色に変化が出るよう調整されました。
    戦闘中のリボンの詳細情報を表示するオプションが追加されました。
    スキル「状況認識」のロジックを改善しました。この変更により、敵チームに発見されている状態では検出インジケータが全て表示されるようになります。
    国籍別の艦長ボイスを含む、サウンドコンフィグ機能を拡張しました。
    チームメンバーにフレンドリーファイアを通知する機能を追加しました。本通知は 10 秒間のクールタイムが存在します。
    パーソナルオファーシステムを拡張しました。なお、表示される割引価格は公開テスト用のものであり、本実装時には変更される可能性があります。

 

AP and HE rounds can now be more easily distinguished in flight

Included detailed ribbon options

Improved 6th sense logic.  While your ship is spotted, the indicator will always be on.

Added national voices, improved sound configuration

Included a friendly fire indicator for your team

Improved personal offer system

Given the extensive tech trees for the US and IJN I will assume Henderson Field on Guadalcanal will be available for my IJN fleet to pulverize.

Extra shot of saki for all crews!

YES YES YES!! I have been wanting them to implement land targets for forever. Really would give a more rounded and realistic WWII feel to the game. Plus live stats will be most excellent. You can see live stats in most other matchmaking games why not WoW? So good to hear. Also being able to see the types of hits will be great feedback.

You realize "live stats" have been in the game for awhile as a Mod? WG is just taking the idea and implementing it, good for the game, kind of a slap in the face of the modders though.......:teethhappy:

So another reason to only want BB's and CV's at high tier.

 

Wooo ?

By the way...I caught the Asia region's notes in my native language...the "facelift" the cruisers will get won't be just visuals...

Improving the MM is a good idea but I have some worries that the new logic will create more que dumps and all the fun that come from that.

Given the extensive tech trees for the US and IJN I will assume Henderson Field on Guadalcanal will be available for my IJN fleet to pulverize.

Extra shot of saki for all crews!

 

You would have to be using Kongo's while the Americans would use North Carolina's.

 

For anyone interested here is a link to a detailed damage analysis of the mauling, 20 16" & at least 17 5" hits, Kirshima received at Second Guadalcanal.

Nice to see the new game mode.  Will need to do something about Yamato sitting at 26km lobbing shells.  

 

Worried about the MM tier restrictions.  I'm hoping it doesn't take it too far and make every match a mirrored MM.

Why are you guys assuming there will be ground target bombardment? It seems like they are talking about a new flavor of domination.

 

New MM seems to be a side-step. Minor improvements but forcing CVs of the same tier is going to lower them in play even further.

 

I don't know about which part of Russian armor schemes I'm supposed to be impressed with...if other ships are going to get full HE damage from grazing the lookout nest or get citadeled from a glancing hit to the port deck then the game is going to be largely unplayable.

I wonder if we can Torp the Ojbectives..  Shima 15km torps sneak around send 15.. you'll kill enemy ships trying to block them or insta gib the fort out in the water.

 

 

Will be neat to see...

Ah, well given that this is an alternate universe here I would prefer Amagis vs Colorados. ;)

Sounds like a very interesting patch. Wonder if the armor changes mean love for USN cruisers......

Bastion mode sounds cool, but I can see it being abused by people farming kills on forts rather than actually going out and attacking enemy ships.

Play of the Game:  Bastion on Atlantic

[Cue Island Forts doing the most damage to both sides]

 

At least the angry islanders can finally have their revenge.  Where's that story about NPC islanders salvaging shells and reusing the cannons?

 

On a more serious note, I'm going to be extremely happy capturing those forts.  Those radar installations and gun emplacements are really going to increase the mid-range combat, like they do i NF2.  Bonus if the Radar installations actually mark the entire enemy team's location every few seconds.

 

As far as armor remodeling goes, here's hoping it fixes Yubari and improves some bow-on tanking with Myoko, Atago, and Ibuki.

Noooooooooo, I want the ribbon art to stay the same this new art looks so basic and kinda terrible just leave ribbons the way they are, also why change it from A,B,C to 1,2,3 it makes no sense.

Mods will fix the ribbon designs.

 

Also, the 0.5.8 public test is downloadable on the PT client now.

 

What I find really funny about this is the fact that there's nothing official on the NA homepage or forum or anything.
