Balance changes - 0.11.8 Public Test

We're applying balance changes to the following ships based on an analysis of both their combat statistics as well as player feedback: researchable German and Italian destroyers, Siliwangi, Udaloi, Harbin, Jinan, Leander, Marlborough, Champagne, Ryujo, Bearn, and United States. The Depth Charge Airstrike parameters for all ships have been unified.

 

V Maestrale:

  • Maximum damage of researchable torpedoes reduced: 9,067 to 8,600
    • Chance to cause flooding reduced: 145% to 136%.
  • Torpedo tube reload time increased: 75 to 80 s
  • Main battery reload time increased: 5.5 to 5.8 s

VI Aviere:

  • Stock torpedo damage reduced: 9,067 to 8,600
    • Chance to cause flooding reduced: 145% to 136%.
  • Torpedo tube reload time increased: 75 to 80 s.
  • Main battery reload time increased: 6.5 to 6.8 s

IX Adriatico:

  • Main battery reload time reduced: 6 to 5.7 s

VII Z-31, VIII Gustav-Julius Maerker, IX Felix Schultz, X Elbing

  • Maximum HE shell damage increased: 1,700 to 1,800
  • Chance to cause fire increased: 8% to 12%.

VIII Siliwangi:

  • Main battery reload time reduced: 5 to 4.8 s
  • Torpedo tube reload time reduced: 128 to 120 s

IX Udaloi:

  • The detectability of the stock hull is now similar to that of the researchable one:
    • Surface detectability range increased: 8.3 to 8.9 km.
    • Detectability after firing in smoke increased: 3.3 to 3.6 km.

VIII Harbin:

  • Added the Repair Party consumable.

X Jinan:

  • The main battery reload time has been reduced: 3.5 to 3.2 s.

VI Leander:

  • Main battery reload time increased: 8 to 8.5 s.
  • Reload time of the researchable torpedo tubes increased: 96 to 101 s.
  • Reload time of the stock torpedo tubes reduced: 106 to 101 s.

IX Marlborough:

  • Main battery sigma parameter increased: 1.4 to 1.45.

VIII Champagne:

  • HP increased: 52,600 to 60,900

VI Ryūjō:

  • Researchable torpedo bombers:
    • Maximum torpedo damage reduced: 6,500 to 6,067
    • Chance to cause flooding reduced: 36% to 34%.

VI Béarn:

  • Skip bombers:
    • HE bomb damage reduced: 6,100 to 5,800
    • Chance to cause fire reduced: 35% to 33%.
