WoWS Supertest – Patrol Fighters consumable, Loop and Bering Sea maps

There will be a closed test session for aircraft carriers in the Clan Battles format. The ‘Patrol Fighters’ consumable available to carrier-based plane squadrons will have the following changes applied to it:

  • Spotting range lowered from 20 to 5 km;

  • Time until the fighters begin chasing an enemy plane squadron reduced from 5 to 1 second;

  • Action radius increased from 3.5 to 6 km;

  • Time for fighters to appear after the consumable is activated increased from 6 to 15 seconds;

  • Fighters’ detectability range was increased from 7.5 to 12 km;

  • Action time of the consumable was increased from 60 to 90 s;

  • The consumable’s number of charges was increased from 3 to 6.

These settings will create a more intense interaction between aircraft carriers of opposing teams and will improve the cooperation between the aircraft carrier and its allied ships. Also the Patrol Fighters’ ability to perform reconnaissance will be lowered due to a reduced spotting range.

Testing will let us collect the necessary data to evaluate and determine our next steps.

Besides that, the maps Bering Sea and Loop have been updated after the last test and will be tested again.
