Hi Listeners! For this weeks episode of the Warships Podcast, we have a bittersweet one. This is the final episode for KamiSamurai who is leaving the podcast to go work for Wargaming North America in Austin, TX. There are many goodbyes from fellow Community Contributors and Kami took a moment to reflect on his time on the show. The show introduces Aerroon, who is now officially a full time crew member of the Podcast and will help the team going forward. The Community Contributor Program giveaways are also discussed as the crew explains the process.
Sailing into the heart of our show topics, the podcast crew discusses the new Admiral Halsey Campaign. Similar to the Yamamoto Campaign, this is a permanent commander that has special abilities and special rewards for achieving in match combat actions. Parts of the new USN Cruiser line split have happened and a new supply shop and feature is coming called “Arsenal”. Discussion about the USS Salem being the first ship earned by a new resource type called “Coal” is debated, as is the other resource “Steel”. Which will only be earned via modes like Ranked or Clan Battles. Arsenal may also include consumables like Signals, or Free XP, but these have yet to be finalized and as always, subject to change. Cruising to the finish the podcast crew debates this Ranked Season 9. Which has for many been a salty one. The team talks about the effects of irrevocable at Rank 10 and the nature of game play at Tier 10 for Ranked. The cast debates changes to what they feel would make ranked better going forward and expectations for future seasons.
In closing we part with our dear KamiSamurai who will be joining Wargaming. We wish him all the best, but we could not have done any of this without all of you. Thank you for supporting this show and the World of Warships Community. We look forward to seeing you next cast!
