WoWS Q&A – 22th September 2016

On the nerf of premium ships.
Background: This discussion pertains to the upcoming nerf of the Błyskawica and the Anshan, the details of which I am not familiar with (Chinese leak?). Apparently, the upcoming nerf will not be specific to the above two premium ships, but a systemic nerf that applies to all destroyers.
EDIT: The nerf applies to the armor, which may not be a decisive issue for destroyers.
Comment by JamesWhite:
1. We do not plan on nerfing premium ships, whether in ports or in online shops. All assumptions to the contrary are incorrect.
2. There still exists a probability that sometime in the future the circumstances will compel us to do something like that. In such cases we will compensate all owners with doubloons.
However, I would specifically like to emphasize the role of systemic nerfs, which apply to all ships of a given type or several types. For example, such systemic changes may pertain to the maps, shell penetration or spotting mechanics. The points 1 and 2 do not apply to such systemic changes.
