WoWS Supertest – Upgrades changes

In version 0.9.1 we will change the existing upgrades in our game and add some new ones. These changes will add more variety in the choice of upgrades and will allow players to further customize their ship to suit their play style.

Some upgrades will be replaced by new ones and removed from the game. In this case, the upgrades already mounted on the ships will be replaced by their new versions. Upgrades in the inventory will be exchanged for credits for their full value.
