A patch to fix the audio was uploaded overnight.
With update 0.8.8 we improved most of the sound environment in the game. Unfortunately, not everything went smoothly, and with the change, a few bugs crept in. In 0.8.8.1 we will fix these sound bugs so that you can enjoy the roar of the guns again.
List of fixes:
- Fixed an error that caused the message about the destruction of a ship to be repeated if a unique commander is assigned to the player’s ship;
- Fixed a bug that caused incorrect functioning of the sound settings.
- Fixed an error that caused the engine start sound to playback after closing the tactical map;
- Fixed a bug that caused AA defense and secondaries sounds to incorrectly play whilst controlling a squadron;
- Fixed a bug causing incorrect functioning of the Azur Lane audio modification.
- Changes in the transmission of sound through space of enemy and friendly shots. The sounds of the shots will now play correctly depending on the distance of the sound source;
- The volume of the fire alarm has been reduced;
- The sound of the ship’s horns has been adjusted;
- Adjusted the sound for voice announcements about hits when using the artillery camera to track shells;

Hello everyone, for those of you who weren’t aware the World of Warships team have just unveiled their latest goodies for WoWS at this years Gamescom and I am writing to give you an overview of what to expect. Firstly, we have been given this teaser:

Back in 2018 many of you have participated in the operation called ‘Terror of the Deep’. This event allowed everyone to try a new class in our game — submarines. By the end of the event, it became clear that our players are highly interested in submarines and we should be engaged in full development.
And now, we are happy to announce that the first stages of closed testing will begin shortly, where the new gameplay of submarines will be tested. The American and German submarines will be the pioneers of the new class.
After the SuperTest submarines will be available for players to try on a special server, before being added to the main game client. Once introduced, the new class will initially be available in a special separate battle type only and this final configuration stage will last for several months. This will allow us to make additional changes to the new class under the conditions of the live server.
We will be sharing more details with you shortly. Follow our official game channels for more news!
Update 0.8.7 is set to bring many interesting new features to players: French destroyers from Tier II through Tier VIII are leaving early access, and players are also getting a new collection, a new legendary Commander, changes to the mechanics of the AA defense priority sector, and much more…
For those that missed it.
