Hi listeners, we get underway on episode 49 with recapping the events of last week for KamiSamurai and Kelorn's trip to Wargaming NA . They had a great time and touched on some of the great moments the two had while visiting the Wargaming Office and USS Hornet. Both joked about meeting in person for the first time and all the silliness that was had while doing Warships Live. If you missed them on Warships Live, you can go on Facebook and watch the replay of the video and see all the awful flavored soda's that the team was subjected to.
Getting into show topics, we discuss the hot topic issue regarding the recently leaked super test information about potential upcoming smoke changes and Wargamings official statement about the issue. The cast debates the issues of super testing, and community reaction to changes while also making commentary on the needs for Wargaming to have an environment and/or testing vehicle to promote change to the game. Moving on, we talk about one of the newest ships we are testing and previewing. The KMS Graf Zeppelin, which is a new Premium German Carrier slated at Tier 8. This ship was provided to us by Wargaming for testing and previewing purposes and is subject to change. With this each cast member gives their opinion about this ship, and we also break down some of the major points of interest for GZ. Plus we touch on any issues players might be facing when using or playing against the carrier. The topic of carrier competitiveness at Tier 8 is brought up and the cast discusses which CVs might have potential and where Graf Zeppelin might stand with them. Rounding out our show topics the cast discuss the new 0.6.9 Player Test Server patch that is now available for testing. One of the big new game additions is the new campaign to add the famed IJN Admiral Isoroku Yamamoto. This campaign is a permanent campaign similar to the other two available and will allow players to go at their own pace to finish out the achievements to earn this historic commander. Yamamoto comes with special abilities for earning First Blood and Kraken and each member of the cast debates the nature, viability, and whether abilities like this should be in the game. There are also nice benefits to finishing the campaign that allows players to change basic camouflage paint schemes as well as adds a second cosmetic flag to the mix. With this we end the show talking briefly about the operations, campaigns, and the Dunkirk missions noting how nice it is to see so much content that has been added recently outside of random battles.
Thank you everyone for listening and see you next cast!
