Hi Listeners! For this weeks episode of the Warships Podcast, Radar X joins the show bringing a special announcement from Wargaming North America about the next King of the Sea tournament. In addition to this news, a myriad of changes and ship testing continue with new information about what ships and game mechanics are being worked on.
Sailing into the main show topics the podcast discusses the new USN Cruisers being tested, and how each of the ships feel to the cast members. Going over ships like USS Salt Lake City (Pensacola), USS Astoria (New Orleans), USS Pittsburg (Baltimore), USS Columbia (Cleveland) and USS Buffalo. Many of these ships have changed from their former selves where some have improved and others need help or have a vastly different play styles from the previous iterations.
Continuing on the topic of cruisers, the crew talks on the changes to the Russian Battle Cruiser's VMF Kronshtadt and VMF Stalingrad. Both ships are getting massive buffs and overhauls to make these ships more appealing and bring more utility to the game. Note though, the cast members have yet to try these ships and as always these things are subject to change. However these two ships are looking far more deadly and formidable and we look forward to testing them.
Rounding out our show discussion, the podcast crew discusses the other changes of note. Mainly to Tier 10 Carriers, i.e. USS Midway and HIJMS Hakuryu and how this will effect high tier gameplay and competitive gameplay formats like in King of the Sea. In addition to these changes, other notable adjustments come to ships VMF Varyag, KMS Z-39, KMS Prinz Eugen, RM Duca Delgi Abruzzi, USS Monaghan, and USS Massachusetts. The consumable slots are being adjusted for USS Columbia and USS Worcester where Worcester will get five total consumable slots.
On a more somber note the podcast would like to offer their condolences on the loss of a well loved Warships Community Member. Dseehafer recently passed away and we all will miss him dearly. Special thank you to the community for all the remembrance of him and support to his family.
Thank you everyone for listening and supporting our community and podcast. We look forward to seeing you on the next episode of the Warships Podcast!
