ST, Pan-Asian destroyers

All of the upgradable destroyers had their smoke screens changed. The stats are now equal for all the tiers.

Set up time – 40 seconds;…
Active time – 60 seconds;
Reload – 90 seconds for standard и 60 for premium equipment;
Charges – 4 for standard and 5 for premium equipment.

Decreased reload time lets these destroyer captains use the smoke screens to efficiently retreat in case of unsuccessful combat with an enemy destroyer. Also, there is a possibility to conceal one’s ship while firing at the enemy. As a part of our balancing effort we decreased the active time for the smoke, increased the set up time and decreased the overall number of charges.

Update 0.6.12

New standard camouflage – Type “59”:
Reduces ship detectability by 3%;
Decreases the firing accuracy of the enemy by 4%;…
Increases the amount of XP earned per battle by 200%;
Cost: 125 Doubloons.

These changes are designed to increase the chance to hit a battleship with torpedoes and appropriately decrease efficiency against cruisers.

The names of the leagues are inspired by the sea, and convey the atmosphere of the rough ocean waters. The names of the leagues as you move along denote worsening weather at sea, just like the growing heat of battles when moving from one league to the next.
