Hi Listeners! We are back for another episode of the Warships Podcast and we have plenty of topics to cover. The Let's Battle Tour event at USS Lexington was a success and Wargaming's Sub Octavian came to visit. Where he revealed some new information on the future of USN carriers and cruisers.
Getting right into show topics, the crew sets off with the topics of the LBT. Discussing USN CV changes and carrier module choice in general or now, lack there of. The news about the USN cruiser split was also discussed as the news from LBT had much to talk about.
Sailing right along, the cast gets into a plethora of new premium ships that are being tested. The first of which is the Huang He, a Chinese light cruiser that the cast has been testing for awhile but now has the addition of a smoke option. The podcast gives their thoughts and moves onto the new tier 6 German (Dutch designed) Destroyer, KMS T-61. After this, the next premium, the tier 7 HIJMS Ashitaka is discussed and the use of the old stock hull ships leads to a debate on their use. Rounding out our new premiums the crew brings up the tier 7 RM Duca delgi Abruzzi. The discussion of this ship brings a debate on cruiser life and the future of Italian ship lines and what that national flavor might be.
Moving full steam ahead, the show finishes out with our Quick Hits, bringing up points on; Offical Wargaming Stream starting Friday, World of Warships now available on Steam, USS Indianapolis is for sale again, Patch 6.14 is being tested, and the new changes that brings. The show finishes with the topic of further testing to KMS Graf Zeppelin, and the cast brings up CV expert Farazelleth who did an amazing write up, analysis, and opinion piece on reddit. While on the topic of carriers, recent changes to destroyer AA has led to a further power creep in Anti Air capability leaving CV players with harder choices to make when attacking, and the crew again discusses the impact that this has on the game.
Thank you listeners so much for your continued support and we will see you next cast!
