EU Weekday Server Issue
Last Thursday (11/07/19), we had some server issues which prevented a lot of you from playing World of Warships.
To make up for the disruption and inconvenience caused, we are offering compensation.
Those of you who played at least one battle between 26/06/19 00:00 UTC – 11/07/19 13:25 UTC will be able to claim the following:
- 1x Wargaming Container
- Guaranteed 1 day of Warships Premium, plus a random signal flag assortment.
- 1x Standard “Rogue Wave” Container.
We sincerely apologize for the distruption and appreciate your patience.
Will be posting more of these in the future:
French destroyer Siroco, tier V:
Detectability range by air is lowered from 3.36 km to 2.7 km;
Main Battery Reload Booster and Engine Boost consumables are changed place. Now, Siroco’s consumables are arranged in the same order as the researchable French destroyers.
French destroyer Vauquelin, tier VII:
French destroyer Kleber, tier X:
Detectability ranges by sea, and after firing main caliber guns in smoke, for French destroyers is corrected considering the basic detection range from sea.
French cruiser Colbert, tier X:
Soviet cruiser Smolensk, tier X:
When using skills and upgrades for lowering detection range, the AA gun range of Colbert and Smolensk was larger than the detection range by air. This allowed these cruisers to turn the AA off and activate it when enemy planes are already inside the AA zone. The changes will remedy this situation.
Statistics prone to change.
Update 0.8.6 opens up the French arc, which is set to span two updates. Players will enjoy a new game event, gain early access to the French destroyer branch, explore the new Crash Zone Alpha map, and experience many other features.
But how did we select the ships for the new branch and what are its peculiarities? How did we create the new map? How did the last Clan season go?
