Hi listeners! In this weeks episode of the Warships Podcast Aerroon and Vanessaira go over some recent changes, news, and testing done in the World of Warships. Regretfully Kelorn is in Chicago for business and could not make the this weeks episode. This show also saw the return of Vanessaira who had recently moved and had been unable to make the previous shows.
Getting straight into show topics, the podcast members open up with their thoughts and reflections of some of the newer ships they had been testing. Which included the testing of: Tier 8 British Battleship HMS Vanguard as well as Tier 3 British Battleship HMS Dreadnought, Tier 9 French Battleship Jean Bart, Tier 8 USN Cruiser USS Wichita. Both members talk about these ships and give their take on what is good and bad about them.
Continuing right along, both members go over the news and changes coming out across the Warship's Dev Blog. Topics of discussion focused on the changes and testing regarding the new carrier rework and action style game play. Contingencies for players and CV owners who would like a refund are also going to be offered and both members reflected on Wargaming's decision. A 'Quality of Life' change for opening all containers is being added and feedback and ideas to improve the game mode for “Arms Race” is also being discussed in way to help promote the game mode.
Further changes covering the larger caliber secondary guns on battleships are discussed as well as buffs and improvements to IJN Heavy Cruisers and buffs to cruiser maneuvering in general. Enhancements are coming to the IJN Destroyer lines, with improvements to their alpha damage being the focus. Wargaming is also discussing changes and testing that they have done to try to address the Surveillance Radar consumable in game. Interesting ideas and test are covered and potential solutions are debated. The show finishes with the discussion and changes that are under consideration to make the flooding mechanics consistent and less luck or RNG based.
