RN cruisers big changes (!)

Source: https://www.twitch.tv/wargamingfmwows/v/88990119

In todays twitch the developers mentioned that the RN cruiser line will be reworked, possibly getting Speed Boost, Improved Repair Party, better ballistics, orientation to AP, and may even lose HE.

The production team is fast in implementing the changes. The NA server gets reworked ships in 3 days already.

Relevant part starts: 01:37:40

I will keep you updated on this as more details are discussed on the RU forum.

 

-Tone & Kitakami are not dead. Kitakami might become a “high tier reward ship”, for the Tone they are figuring out a workable hybrid playstyle.

-Sub_Octavian has indicated that the current design of bow and aft battleship plating might be changed.

If you’re unsure what this means: this means that all high-tier BBs would be able to overmatch from the bow or stern, such as by reducing those plates to 25mm, and it would single-handedly eliminate the bow-on meta game.

-Montana will get 38mm weather deck as so long requested.

    They would suck so much if they lose the HE! They would be useless against just about everything. It would kill the entire line.

  2. Kitakami might become a special reward ship, maybe like Flint. That might prevent from awkward torpedo spams caused by unskillful Kitakami players during CBT, and that was why WG suspended Kitakami for a long while.

    Fuck that, really. Ships should get the armor they historically had and american battleships were armored around long range engagements. If their bows and sterns are weakly armored, then they are weakly armored and need to stay at range, to make their good plunging-fire-protection work to their advantage.
