JamesWhite in the last developer stream: The only forbidden modification is the aim assist. Consequently, everything else is allowed.
In particular, not forbidden are:
1. Rainbow mod, which shows the place of shell drop on the water surface, while the salvo is still in flight. Makes it very easy to dodge. The same exists for torpedoes.
2. X-Ray mod, which always shows the outline of all ships, even if they are behind islands.
The message showing screenshots of these two mods have been removed from the RU forum, hence I give a description only.
A probable reason for not banning these mods is the inability to reliably detect them.
Translation of interview with producer “Hisashi Yanaginasa” Apr.14, 2017:
This interview was released in April.
-HSF Harekaze and Graf Spee will have their own missions when released.
-HSF ships could have different MM from other ships, not finalized yet. (Which did not become true ATM, as this translation is a month old).
-Both ships will come in June.
They want to have another collaboration with WoWS, They will make an announcement in September.
Musashi: They want to release it, however TX premium ship would have lots of problems, (P2W,P2L etc…) They plan to make it as a reward for the tournament, or clan wars, for which Kitakami is already planned to be a reward ship for such an event.
Pan Asia – we already knew about it, own tech tree for 2017.
Official tournament – T8, 7v7 or 9v9.
New clan system will come within 2017.
