[WoWs] Latest ST changes

Greetings,

there are the latest ST changes in World of Warships:

European destroyer Västerås, Tier VI:

  • Detectability ranges were increased:

    • By ships from 6.86 to 7.06 km;

    • After firing main guns in smoke from 2.44 to 2.51 km;

    • By planes from 2.9 to 2.99 km.

Effective main battery guns coupled with a relatively low detectability range made the ship very strong on her Tier. An increased detectability range will let enemies spot Västerås and disengage earlier.

European destroyer Småland, Tier X:

  • Action time of the Surveillance Radar consumable increased from 15 to 20 s;

  • Main caliber guns firing range increased from 10.4 to 11.4 km.

The action time of the Surveillance Radar didn’t let Småland use the consumable to its full potential.

British cruiser Cheshire, Tier VIII:

  • Guaranteed ricochet angle for armor-piercing shells reduced from 65 to 60 degrees;

  • Main caliber guns reload time reduced from 13 to 11.5 s;

  • Main caliber guns firing range increased from 15.7 to 16.1 km;

  • Detectability range by ships reduced from 12.42 to 11.9 km.

Due to a small number of main caliber guns, Cheshire had rather low damage per minute and her detectability range prevented quick disengaging from combat.

British cruiser Drake, Tier IX:

  • Guaranteed ricochet angle for armor-piercing shells reduced from 65 to 60 degrees;

  • Main caliber guns reload time reduced from 18.5 to 18 s.

British cruiser Goliath, Tier X:

  • Guaranteed ricochet angle for armor-piercing shells reduced from 65 to 60 degrees;

  • Main caliber guns reload time reduced from 19 to 18.5 s.

We adjusted the parameters of British heavy cruisers based on testing results.
