WoWS Info – 27th September 2017

ST, Deep water torpedoes mechanics.

Based on test results, we decided to implement the second version of deep-water torpedo mechanics. Now they hit the target depending on the target class. Torpedoes of Pan-Asian destroyers in this version hit all ship classes, except for destroyers.

ST, minimap

Players will be able to turn on the display of Hydroacoustic Search and Surveillance Radar range on the minimap.

* the interface is in Russian due to early testing stage

All test participants will receive GZ with Torpedo Bombers and deep water torpedoes.

Please, find further information below.

Junkers 87C with DW torpedoes;
Flight control: 2-3-0;
Torpedo type: F5;
Range: 2 km;
Speed: 33 knots;
Damage: 10500.
Depth: 5,85 m (due to draught difference, DDs are mostly immune, other classes are mostly hit);
Squadron formation: cross.

This version should allow diverse TB gameplay, while removing the huge DD destruction potential of the initial loadout. The only DD counter in this version is spotting.

We also would like to thank all Phase 1 testers for participation. We will send you in-game survey on GZ AP bomb versions soon, and post a notification here as well.
