Hi listeners! For this weeks episode of the Warships Podcast, we have the return of EU Contributor Aerroon. Normally the podcast would have Aerroon on for a pre Ranked Season break down, however this time he is joining us for post Ranked results. The cast does a quick interview to catch up with Aerroon, and see what he has been doing since the last time he was on the show before diving straight into our topics.
Our first topic of discussion is a plethora of new premium ships including the USS Monaghan, HIJMS Asashio, Gasconge, as well as Dev Blog ships Z 39 and Kronstadt. The USS Monaghan and HIJMS Asashio are both new destroyers being tested and the cast members give their current opinions on the work in progress ships. Moving on to the Gasconge, a ship that was previously discussed on the show. The crew talks about the changes and whether it is enough to make it a better or more competitive ship than it was in its previous iteration. The podcast crew also discusses the latest information shown form the World of Warships Dev Blog which showcased two new ships. The German Destroyer Z 39 and the Russian Cruiser Kronstadt. Both ships are debated but the Kronstadt in particular drew speculation and discussion towards another ship the cast would like to see, the USS Alaska and/or USS Guam. Sailing right along, the show gets into the post Ranked Season discussion. Debating and parsing the Tier 8 Ranked Season and each member going over how they felt and what observations they had while playing. The noted differences between all the servers and the strengths and weaknesses of some ships played through, which in particular were ships, HMS Edinburgh, VMF Chapayev, USS New Orleans, and Lo Yang. Talk on the topic of radar and sonar is held and a discussion about the frustrations players had this season was also noted.
The podcast finishes the show by discussing the next Clan Battles season. Which will have very similar rules and match sets as the previous first season. The French Battleship line launch is imminent and the crew discusses one of the new unique ways that you could possible earn access to the ships early. Thank you to everyone who listens and supports this show! We sincerely look forward to having you again on the Warships Podcast.
